I'm Back!

I've been painting a fair bit in the past week, thanks to a prompt delivery of Black Talon miniatures.

Here's some pictures of my Dark Naga. I chose the HRP+LPA configuration to allow for cheapish heavy firepower and accurate short range defense. When painting, I did all the metallics first and I noticed how superior the new sculpt is compared to the old one. The new Naga is as beautiful as it is menacing.

I also have a couple of Ravens to accompany my Dark Skirmisher. The still need a couple hours of work done. I'm really not convinced a Forward Observation and Recon Team is a viable army choice under 1000TV, but I like the models, which is the most important thing.

Finally, I grabbed this spice rack for 99 cents at a second hand store. That's a good investment if I ever saw one.

Hey all, as I'm moving back to Canada tomorrow evening, I will be offline for a bit. Thankfully, I packed a small painting kit to hit the ground running while I wait for the rest of my stuff to arrive.

I also just put in an order for some extra stuff, such as some Hoplites and  infantry for my Black Talon, and the majestic new Naga sculpt to provide some extra stealthy punch.

When I finally get settle in Kingston, I'll try to find some players for a Heavy Gear campaign. I have been working on it for a good while now. It will be something like "24" with Gears, set during the Interpolar War.

Dark Skirmisher

From the huge Dark Kodiak, I went on to paint the diminutive Dark Skirmisher. It was quite challenging, but it turned out OK.

This would probably end up being my army commander, in a squad of recon Gears.
