While rooting around in a second hand game store, I came across a piece of plastic terrain, that I think is part of the old crashed fighter set GW brought out so many years ago. Next to it is a plastic container that little rubber monster animals called Zomlings came in, Painted up it makes a fairly nice generator.
So with Necromunda getting a re-release soon, I figured I would make a start on some terrain. I picked up the Manufactorium set a few weeks ago, and good God is it awful, while its not bad for smaller structures like this, the contact points are so small that anything you build will fall apart more often than not.
I have had this Warboss, minus his gun, sat in my bits box for years. Finally managed to get hold of a gun the other day and now my brown and orange horde has a mighty leader to inspire them to pillage and loot and kill and stuff.
A handful of plastic Ork's I got off eBay. Really nice old school models, and what amazes me is how uniform the plastic Ork's were back in the Rogue Trader / 2nd Edition days. They all seem to share the same traits, they all tend to have a bolter and a close combat weapon, stick grenades on their belts, and a circle for clan badges on the back.
A random selection of miniatures I have had sat around for a while. The redneck and the torturess are both from Reaper, I have no idea where the ribbon girl comes from, and the bandaged psyker comes from Bad Squiddo Games recent Kickstarter.
I've really been slacking off the painting as of late, just no drive for it, despite the multitude of primed miniatures sat on my desk. I did however force my way through some of the latest releases for Imperial Assault, 000 the protocol droid programed for etiquette, torture and interrogation, BT-01, the psychotic Astromech, and a Jawa...seems a shame you only get one Jawa, considering the size and price point, I would have thought two or three would be better.
The huge add on that came with the Jabba's Realm expansion for Imperial Assault. A word of warning for any who decide to tackle this beast, wear gloves when putting him together, those spikes are sharp.
I've had this girl sat on my desk all painted up since January, just never got around to basing her or taking any pictures, in fact I haven't been doing any painting for over a month, I've just had no drive at all. Well that needs to change. Anyhow, an Imperial Inquisitor who likes bright pink fabrics to brighten up her rather dull armor.
The latest expansion for Imperial Assault, Jabba's Realm, was recently released, along with a number of add on packs, that I am slowly making my way through. To start with is Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight and Shyla Varad, a Mandalorian, who is one of the expansions player characters. Though what is interesting, is that she is not a rebel, but part of the scum and villainy faction.
Jabba's Realm also introduces Jet Troopers and a new Imperial officer, Captain Terro on a Dewback. The Dewback kit is nice becasue you get two rider torsos, one Terro, and another regular trooper with a lance as seen in A New Hope, though as always with these kits, the lance is a bendy mess.
Like a lot of people have found, the Genestealer Cultist's set makes great Necromunda gangers when you stick a different head on them. Not to happy with the mohawk head, as its a little to big, but it will do.
Recently various toy's from the Force Awakens have started hitting the shelves in discount super markets here in the UK, among them are spaceships from Hot Wheel's. Now the fighters are far to big to be of any real use, but the capital ships are nicely sized.
Imperial and First Order Star Destroyers, fairly well detailed and easy to to paint up with a bit of dry brushing.
This is a First Order Troop Transport, they made it around the same size as a Star Destroyer. Its nice and chunky, and I could really see this as a bulk cruiser, or a carrier in games of Full Thrust or the like.
Hot Wheels ships alongside on of the De Agostini Destroyers that were released a few years back, they scale up fairly well together, though I think the Hot Wheels ships are more detailed.
