"I've went for more flashy than the typical realistic-camo approach,
because hey, active camouflage is scifi too. I've only learned about the
competition yesterday (cause despite browsing the blog regularily I
managed to miss the announcement) so it's more of a speed-painting entry
than anything else, but hey, no harm in trying! So anyway, below is
the "Kings in Yellow", a troop of the 44th CentEuropean light dragoons,
equipped with light power armor."
The folks at The Ion Age have released their really cool new light vehicle, the Khamel. Not just a vehicle this is a true miniatures set featuring a mounted and dismounted version of bike and rider. A must-have for any Muster player or player looking for a lovely vehicle for their rough and tumble future settings.
"The Red Shadows: all details are hand painted, even the skull & crossbones helmet markings."
"Old Crow Sabre Heavy Grav Tank; I've added various extra details
including stowage baskets and contents, fuel drum, comms antennae, lots
of grab handles and a couple of tarpaulins sculpted from milliput."
"This is a Fallout-inspired building constructed from foamcore and
cardboard plus a few extra items from my bits box. The mesh windows
should help in keeping out zombies or radioactive mutants..."
"A pack of blooded hunters led by Nta'Mek-Ta (The Silent Stalker in
Yautja language). These figures are part of a larger Aliens Vs Predator
project which wil eventually will have the Corporation, Marines, Aliens
and of course the Predators which will probably have a few more hunter
Miniatures are all Khurasan apart from the Yautja hunting falcon
which I sculpted myself. Didn't get the ship finished in time but it
will do as background for the pics."
"These guys are my As Saiqa Drop Troops. These guys are blue moon miniatures orion republic heavy infantry, though I arabized the leader a bit with some a mop of black curly hair. They're the spearhead for my Neo-Caliphate troops (Khurasan space arabs!), which I'd show here too if I could enter more than one." By Zabarr!
Apologies to the good folks at Brigade for being a little late on this but it's definitely still worth showing off!
Brigade Models has released three new vehicles for their Eurofed range of 15mm vehicles. All thee are amazing models presenting a nice balance of function and firepower along a single design logic. A tank, APC and self-propelled gun round out this addition.
"An armored car for Tomorrows War background, set in the area
around Novolgograd on the planet Moscva in 2273; it belongs to imperial
Russian paramilitary Omon Route Security Group No.3, engaged in keeping
the roads free from the red insurgents" by Jinx from portblackjack.
