Hello again! I finally got down to business and started to work on my stash of 15mm sci-fi minis and models. Breaking out the jeweller's files, CA Glue and baking-soda I discovered how easy (and fun!) it is to clean-up and put together all those groovy vehicles I purchased months ago from Ground Zero Games, Khurasan and Old Crow.
|Does my workbench look familiar? I'm starting to think everyone is into sci-fi 15's.|
But I have been painting as well as kit building! A platoon of New Israeli Hard-Suits from GZG are almost ready for play. A final hit with some matte varnish will be the last step for these.
Four small squads, with a variety of specialists to draw on depending the rule-set & the scenario being played.
The 'ketchup & mustard' camo scheme is based on one I used for my Pig Iron Productions Heavy Infantry. I thought it would be fun to play with the same forces in different scales.
Very much looking forward to painting up the vehicles, buildings and the rest of the minis!A complete set of both the GZG pre-fab buildings and the shanty-town are queued up on the workbench.
A 'serious threat' of Crusties and a small town's worth of civilians will provide for some great not-District Nine scenarios.
What will I be playing with all these toys? There are sooo many options! Yes, I do have my copy of Tomorrow's War, however, play-testing GRUNTz is a priority. You can bet I will definitely will be playing some Star Mogul in 15mm as well as 5150 First Contact. Last, but not least, Fubar will be 'the' drop-in game of choice.
I leave you with a couple of shots of my 28mm Pig Iron Heavy Infantry, in their Martian 'ketchup & mustard' kit....
Post Script: I just read this news about Alpha Forge Games & Star Mogul! Thank you for that timely bit of info TGN!
