SLA Industries: Cannibal Sector 1
« on: July 07, 2019, 05:58:30 PM »
With the impending delivery of my KS stuff, I thought it was time to paint up the stuff I've already got!

Here's the first of the Shivers (SWAT esque urban suppression units, essentially. Ordinary humans hopelessly outclassed by virtually everything else in the setting).

Sorry about the blur, but this is the Captain:




More to come. I've got the rest of the starter patrol, a starter of Carrien, and a selection of Ops to paint yet....

Nice.  Wonder who the sculptor was?  The style looks vaguely Naismith-y.

Nice one. Never heard of the game/range of figs. That miniature is called a 'Shiver'? Guess I'll have to get one now.

Thanks! Work continues on these guys, hoping to get the medic and the squad's teddy bear mascot/objective marker finished tonight (pics to follow).

@Dentatus - it looks like he's only available in this pack now, unfortunately
https://store.nightfall.games/shiver-9th-division-starter-set.html

They're nicely cast minis, but some of the detail is aa bit shallow.

Thanks. Found a metal one on eBay. Last one from the seller, apparently.

Love the SLA setting.  The old game's mechanics were very much RPG - I'd be interested to learn how they've been tweaked to accommodate a miniature wargame.

Can you point me to anything that's been published in that regard?

It's a completely different system. Mind you, the 2nd Ed rulebook is going on kickstarter on 17th September, a d word is that's a completely new system too.

The current publishers are here -
https://nightfall.games/

The CS1 rulebook is currently being sent out to backers of the original kickstarter (and is apparently a 400 odd page book, so there's tonnes of new and updated setting material in there), including aa lot of rpg-useful info. According to some who've got it already, there's a lot of snippets of the Truth in there too...

Progress!

4 of 6 completed. I added a pack and slung FEN carbine to one to make a medic, and the other two are just grunts (another matching pair to come)




And of course, no Shiver patrol leaves base with their faithful mascot, Colin (not the official one, this little guy's from a TTcombat resin pack):


These guys all need their bases finishing - there will be added litter and stuff fitting the ruins of the Sector.

Very nice work.

The mascot looks good, though https://ultravanillasmurf.blogspot.com/2016/06/if-you-go-down-to-woods-today.html or the alt-sculpt might be better suited to SLA.

Shiver Squad finished at last!



My CS1 stuff was delivered on Thursday, so I'll do an Unboxing thing this week coming. In the meantime, here's the first (very) work in progress Carrien:

A small update; I've finally finished my first test Carrien paint scheme.
For those not in the know, Carrien are essentially a pest - albeit a dangerous one in numbers. Their origins are something of a mystery to most but they are ubiquitous both in the city and the Cannibal Sectors

(apologies, it looks like I took these with a potato rather than a camera!) -







Now I'm happy with this, I intend to finish the rest of the pack  :D

Looking good.  How big are the bases on these figs?

Excellent.

Good to see these being painted. How do they compare in size to other figures?

Thanks again  :)

Hoping to churn the Carrien out by Sunday and get a trial game in.

Hobby Services - the bases are Warmachine style 32mm, also known (for obvious reasons) as lipped based.

UVS - humans are 32mm I think; other races vary (Carrien being a touch smaller, Shaktars a bit bigger, Stormers and Scavs being pretty massive).
The size difference really brings home just how skilled SLA Ops have to be, and how much firepower the Company has to bring to bear in the Cannibal Sectors and on War Worlds.

I'll try and get a couple of comparison shots with a couple of well known lines this weekend  :)
