Bits and pieces

I've been busy with a few odds and sods over the last fortnight, but unfortunately I've not really finished very much. My main focus has been more terrain, but I still need to add a few finishing touches to that before I take some photos.

Still, I've been merrily snapping away with the camera on my phone and thought I'd share some photos of other stuff with you. First up are some in action shots of my newly completed terrain, being used in an Inquisimunda campaign I'm participating in. The Quest for the Golden Phrogg has around a dozen players and semi-regulars, using the Inquisimunda modification rules to Necromunda. Essentially, instead of using a Hive Gang, you can use an Inquisitor and their retinue, an Adeptus Mechanicus or Rogue Trader warband, or Squats, or Eldar pirates, or pretty much whatever else you fancy!

I've been using a radical Ordo Malleus warband, complete with mutants, beastman and daemonhost. Three games in and I've managed to pick up a host of experience, in spite of losing two out of three games!

Some of the warband advance warily into an abandoned herders' village.
 

Mechanicus troops were hidden in the shacks.

There are also dangerous chaos beasties wandering around!


Beware the stampede!


Watch for hidden enemies in the shadows.

I'm not sure how many of these WIPs I've shown before, but I guess like a lot of people, I have dozens of stalled and sidelined projects. I've justed pulled a selection of my shelves - it may be some time before some of these see any paint though!

Genestealer hybrids. Bonus points to anyone who can name the source figures.

A swaggering new Inquisitorial Acolyte for use in the Quest for the Golden Phrogg.

Confrontation Dogskin gang. I have another pair to bring their numbers up.

Limited Edition Power Armour Trooper. Unmodified on the left, with visor up on the right.

Crone Astropath and feline familiar, plus Vitifer.

Any bets on which figures will get painted first?!

  1. The two hybrids are nice - one is a nurgle champion and the other is a confrontation scavvies legs and a beastmans arm - I think.....

  2. That Inquisitorial Acolyte looks boss! Like a SciFi bushranger :)

    On the question of which one will get painted first, knowing painters, I wouldn't like to hazard a guess :)

    1. You've got it JB...one figure at a time :D

      I quite like having a queue to pick from. At least in theory I won't get bored!

  5. That acolyte is great! Where do the head and barrel end of the gun come from?

    1. Head is from a Marauder fighter command figure, gun is from an Epic knight titan :)
