I'm not bald, I'm a hybrid.

I knew it would happen, I got sucked in by the new fancy release and now I have started ANOTHER army.

Though I have done myself a tiny favour and have give myself a whole 8 months to get this baby sorted.

So here are a few WIPs and there are plenty more coming.

First up are my 1st squad veterans, these cheerful lads are the epitome of genetic perfection, their leader on the other hand(s) earned his position by killing all who stood in his way, I can only assume it was messy.


Next up, a platoon command squad, the beginnings of one at least, though every time i get it up to the full numbers, I decide that one of the members would be better in another squad, or on the back of a vehicle.
I guess I just have to keep making hybrids!
Guest appearances by the command elements of the Overkill box with a CCS veteran, the unarmed (yeah, pun intended) veteran sergeant and a commissar who must have a head wound, I cannot imagine why he's shooting in the other direction.

Last but not least, A fella I'm calling The Agreeva.
A mech improved, tech infused weapon of mass punishment, in game he's gonna be run as a Commissar.

Now, just because I have spent the last few hours smoothing out the ass of this next one, I am really excited to show him off.

That's it from me for the night.
I have a need to build the cult, almost as if there's a voice telling me to reinforce....

Space Punk or Inq28 Henchman Sculpt

Been busy working away on another sculpt since the last post. And played an AoS game. And been thinking about painting styles. I can show pictures of the first two but nothing has coalesced into coherent thoughts for the last yet. 

So pictures; 
The armature for the latest model. 

The base putty. 

Blocking out the legs. 

Upper body and gun. Kinda rough here. 

With a face now. 

Ah, now for the getting of cool and the 40k vibe. Visor and first shoulder pad. I'm pleased with the pads. They look like something straight out of the Inquisitor rule book. 

And this is where I was at with him as of last night. He just needs a bake before doing the hands and a few other small details. 

Now a couple of in game pictures. Many of you may not like AoS but I'm enjoying it. 
I played Dean's orcs and goblins using one of the South Coast GT scenarios and managed to pull a draw from certain victory with one bad roll. Sigh. Such is life. 

This is now happening: 

And finally a quick size comparison for Kraut Scientist:
