Aside from Johnny Alpha, one of the most iconic Strontium Dog character is Durham Red - the vampiric Search/Destroy agent.

Whilst most of the now OOP Wargames Foundry 2000AD range are too large to work comfortably alongside Citadel's earlier range, there are a couple that are just about scale-compatible. Like Torso from the last post, Evans the Fist fits in with my other Strontium Dogs. Plus the grumpy looking sod is a cool sculpt!

I gave Evans another simple comic-styled paint job based on a coloured image I found on Comic Vine. Like other Strontium Dog characters, there's no real consistency in costume configuration or colours - Evans is shown in khaki or lime green or blue and white, or this natty grey and terracotta.

Making the most of my current enthusiasm for Strontium Dogs, I knocked out another pair over the weekend. This pair includes Mutant Army General George Moore aka The Torso from Newcastle, and another Stront of my own creation, Thickskin Dixon.

I was recently sent a package containing some 2000AD board game figures, including a rather excellent Middenface McNulty. As it had been a while since I last painted any Strontium Dogs, I decided to add another couple of Stronts to the collection.

As I said in my last post, I fancied adding a suitable high ranking character to lead my squad of Inquisitional commandos. And who better than a dour, puritanical Inquisitor. None of the actual Rogue Trader Inquisitor models really fit the bill (mostly kitted out as they are in power armour of various outlandish designs). But the Rogue Trader rogue trader model had the perfect look with his greatcoat and no-nonsense gear.

A squad of five Inquisitional commandos is nice, but two squads is much better. Especially when you get some fancy weapons and a doctrine-spouting officer to boot.

Much in the same way with my Brat gang at the end of last year, this post is something of a full stop to my Venator gang, a project that has spanned two years. I have rounded out the original 6-strong plastic group to include the 4 Marauder Venators and a bunch of other converted figures. I was however missing a dedicated leader and heavy weapon for the group, something I've now rectified.
