Freindly encounters in space

Are few and far between...

Very happy with my Tzeentchian lads. The devastator weapon was a bit of an ad hoc experiment and, well, I wouldn't want to mess with him! (Or use the gun for that matter...)

Off to the line dancing competition lads!

Where we kill everyone...

Chaos reigns...

Three of five new Chaos Space Marines ready for Rogue Trader!

I was originally thinking of using these guys as another team of marines in games of Space Crusade (so you could incorporate a 5th player like HeroQuest) I would still like to see what an extra set of Chaos Marines would do to the balance of SC... Maybe one day I can try it out?

One of my better attempts at a power weapon =) Just look at that lightning crackle! Lovely.

And there they go. Great, more Chaotic goodness next post and, with any luck, a book review!

A Streetcar named Desire...

A gangs head honcho needs to travel in style.
Even in a nuclear fallout wasteland...

Meat factory.

That's a good name for a Goliath gang if ever I heard one!

Without further ado, here are the first members of my (hopefully) all conquering Necromunda gang...


Great fun painting up these lads. I wanted to go for a sightly more colourful scheme than is usual for a Goliath gang... and then proceeded to end up going for no coherent theme at all...
I'm always into embellishing a minis clothes with designs or some such and the good thing about a Necro gang is that you can basically go nuts! (Just look at those stars, I bet he's the envy of the roller disco...)

Most of the colour ideas came from the 'Jem and the Holograms' cartoon... Don't judge me.

As usual I expected the vast amount of skin on these thugs to be a big problem, but I deftly circumvented it with a new approach to skin tones =)  (Basically its the 'use a big square brush and paint it like its a painting' technique)

Had a good time rusting up the cylinders on my makeshift Heavy. It's a little hard to tell from these photos but the Heavy's mohawk is actually hot pink and not orange... If anyone has any advice on taking awesome model photos and lighting in general that works for them, I'm all ears!

-Kimber "Oh my God! Those pants are truly OUTRAGEOUS!"


And just by way of comparison, here's a lovely little mini my mate painted up way back when we actually had time to play this awesome game.

The original Goliath gang Leader;  "McGregor"

(AKA - McGregor the unfortunate, McGregor the holey, McGregor the sure to fall from a great height and McGregor the not so brave as Sir Lancealot...)

One more thing to devote my non existent spare time to has popped up recently namely emulating games I used to play as a lad on my Amiga 500+ (great days they were, great days)

A game I used to love but only had a demo to play around with was Microproses 'B17 Flying Fortress' and would you believe that it just so happens that a wonderful person has emulated it for me!

Here are a few shots of my often shot to pieces B17 G and her fine (slightly retarded) crew.

 And here are the brave lads (in front of another crews plane I suspect, ours is usually on fire or sinking to the bottom of the channel...) Navigator Rectum is so cool that even during a mission he never takes his shades off... which would probably explain why we get lost so often.

 Yeah well it's not the best track record ever recorded but they are improving. Honestly, we've only lost about 30 or so crew members at this point... (most of those are Navigators after they get me lost over Belgium...)

 I should also point out that this is technically the 'Fluffy Kittens Mk5'...  We've lost a few...
There was this one time we made it back and then the rear bit of the plane came off and collided with the hanger. Just as well old Flappy the tail  gunner was in the cockpit playing strip poker at the time...

Desert rat

Hey, here's my completed 'Red Cross gang' desert scout buggy.

No problems with adequate ventilation for this baby!

Really happy with the fit of the Afrika Korps soldier, his legs were just long enough to stand comfortably over the engine bay.

Keeping an eye out for pesky, do-gooding sanctioned mercs and security goons.

Is that a lake placid blue door off a 1965 VW convertible?? No probably not...

The end...

Wasting time...

Great game to play on a dull afternoon   =)
