Nomad Iguana Pilot

Finally, so long after completing the Iguana, i have finished the Iguana pilot!

Although this mini probably wont be on the table that often, i was still keen to get him done. A heavy infantry specialist operative packing an HMG, when this guy does see some table time he's going to make an impact! Now he'll look good doing it!



More  soon!

Nomad Tsyklon's

So its been a while since I've posted on here, but as ever, I've have not been idle!

Having had a taste of the JSA i decided to commit to get my Corregidor finished before i get into the JSA properly. That being said, its only a few months now before the end of ITS season 9 and the start of season 10! JSA will be my season 10 army while i give the Nomads a rest for a while i think.

So to kick off the push to complete the Nomads, I have these pair of Tsyklon's!


I've have had great sucess with these Tsyklons which i run with Spitfires. Nomads have some great combat remotes, and theses are right up there! Decent BS, ARM and BTS and a very quick 6-4 movement with climbing plus and 360 visors! these remotes are fully loaded.

Forgeworld Heresy Era Death Guard Army for Sale!

Hi all! Before i resume my normal topic of posting, i wanted to let you know that i am parting with my large Forgeworld Heresy Era Death Guard Army.

This has become necessary to fund other projects, but Morty and his boys have served me well over the years, right up until i stopped playing 30K/40K. Now i hope they'll go to a good home where they can resume their reconquest of the Galaxy!

Please follow the below link to the eBay auction:

I have put all the photos of the army on here as well so you can take a look!































Normal posting will resume later this week! In the meantime, happy bidding!

JSA - Keisotsu Butai with Combi Rifle

I've been super excited about the whole JSA uprising, both the evolution of the Infinity story and sweet new models that come with it! Like a lot of people i'm sure, I jumped straight on the JSA train when the models became available, picking up the JSA army box and also the ITS Season 9 Tournament Pack for the alternative O-Youri model.

First thing was first though, i needed to get a test mini done. For this i picked up a Keisotsu Butai, one of three in the JA army box.


I'm really enjoying the black/white/red colour combo's of the box art, so i went straight in for that. The white was a chore, needing to be blended up slowly over several coats to make sure it was smooth. I was quite soft on the highlights for the (now affectionately named) 'Combat Joggers'! As they are cloth i didn't want the highlights to be to severe.


I really enjoyed painting this model and was able to smash this out in just a few hours!

The JSA themed bases are from Laser Army Scenery. They are MDF rather than resin or plastic so i was a bit apprehensive as i'd never tried MDF bases before. I was pleasantly surprised though - the detail was good and they were easy to paint. The thickness was also compressible to the resin bases i'd  been using for my Aleph and Corregidor!

McMurrogh Mercenary Dog Warrior

If you have been following my Facebook and Twitter feeds you've probably seen this guy get slowly painted up. It was time for some proper pictures of this guy though!

Since i started collecting and playing Nomads i'd heard a lot about McMurrough. He definitely seems to be a 'point and shoot' kind of model aimed at maximum disruption and destruction before he inevitably goes down! Certainly not a subtle weapon - i like the sound of it! I look forward to getting him on the table.


The kilt was a bit of a daunting challenge, but i was pretty set on tartan! It also had to be red to match the rest of my Corregidor force. A bit of planning and preparation ensured that i got close to what i was trying to achieve. When it was all said and done, i was very happy with my first attempt at tartan!



The sword is admittedly an area that will need more work in the future. I did just zap it with the airbrush and added a few quick highlights to get the model finished off quickly (due to exciting new models arriving on the doorstep. more on that next week!)

Warsenal Comanche Bunker Scout Platform

A quick splash of terrain for you today, something from my near-complete 'Endor Table' project for Infinity! This is the Scout Platform for the Bunker building which importantly enables its inclusion into the walkway system the Comanche terrain is known for. 
 

The Scout Platform replaces the roof of the bunker, adding a level and enabling access to the interior of the bunker via the roof.




The Bunker can no be integrated in the walkway system!


I have Scout Platforms for the 2 pillbox's I already have built, so I'll be getting them painted up next!.
