Eternal Champions - Elric, Moonglum & Jagreen Lern

It had been some time since I last thought about painting up any figures for my Citadel Eternal Champion collection. However when the 28 Mag team asked if I was interested in writing an article about gaming in the multiverse, I thought it was a great opportunity to add some new figures and characters. As the photos of newly painted figures in the article are just illustrative, I thought it would be good to give the figures a little more airtime here on the blog!

The Rolling Messiah (Colony 87 by Crooked Dice)

When I handed over the reins of Colony 87 to Crooked Dice a few years back, I didn't know what to expect in terms of the future range. Happily Karl has thrown a load of hard work and magic at the range, and grown it beyond my imagination. The Rolling Messiah from the Market Folk set is a brilliant example of what I always hoped the range would be - characterful sci-fi civilians that simply don't exist elsewhere.

Genius Intellect and a Powerful Psychic Mind - The Professor

I had planned to paint this figure up as one of my Five Parsecs crew, but I got halfway through before running out of time. Since then he'd been stuck part-painted on a shelf, waiting patiently for me to finish him off. Happily, I had a few hours yesterday evening, so it's another figure in the 'done' pile. He's the sort of figure that really appeals to me with his non-combatant / Professor X look.

Psyker Killers, Qu'est-ce Que C'est?

The only downside to the Marauder Confrontation figures is that there aren't enough of them. Four Ash Waste Nomads. Four Venators. Four Psykers. Four figures isn't enough to make a gang of anything (except possibly a rubbish gang that needs to rethink its recruitment policy!).

So on the heels of my four Marauder psykers and my converted leader, I wanted to add some more big-headed lads with mind powers.

Venators corner a notorious group of psykers on their witch hunt.
