Here's a few new Hinterland miniatures I painted up for a Pulp Alley VSF league. I think they turned out pretty good and I hope you all like them.

Pretty darn cool.

Great paintjobs and pictures.  Looks like things are about to get ugly for the sailor left behind on the launch.  Thanks for posting!   :D

Is that a graboid? Did you make it?

We based it off of another miniature of a tremors worm. You can see the Workbench post at the link below.

You can also find the miniature we based it on by following this link.

I know the blog and the game reports.

There are a couple different places where you can find some leagues we or other people have made. You can check them out by browsing the links below. Sorry that some of them don't have pictures.

Last time I checked I wasn't a sir, but a lady. It's nice that I can pull off the status of both. lol lol


Thanks for all the kind comments. Dad also ordered some trench fighters from Hinterland so those will be our next up and coming project. :D

We've been testing the new Gangs rules quite a bit lately, and decided to push the limit to see what would happen.  So for this battle I played my new Venus VSF League, against a horde of native Newts…

Captain Cadence League (10 slots) = 1 Leader (with Commander), 1 Sidekick, 5 Allies, and 1 Follower.

Newt Warband (10 slots) = 1 Sidekick, and 40 Newts (divided into 8 Gangs) -- with Mastermind and Short Range.




Turn #1 -- This was not set up as a fair fight. Although the Newts clearly outnumbered Cadence’s landing party, they had to deploy in the open and out of range for their bows/javelins. In addition, Cadence was in control of the Initiative --



On turn one Cadence’s Cadets opened fire immediately and inflicted significant casualties as the Newts raced forward to get into range. Once in range, the Newts were finally able to inflict some damage of their own. Dad held back his Newt Sidekick until the last moment, and was able to injure Sgt. Sidney with a poison tipped arrow – to steal the Initiative.

At the end of Turn #1, over half of his Newts lay scattered across the landscape, and two Cadets were out of action…



Turn #2 -- At the start of Turn #2 the Newts were now in range to close the gap -- and they had control of the Initiative...



In the center, Dad tried to finish off Sgt Sidney but she stood her ground admirably! The Newts did drop one more Cadet, but Cpt Cadence rushed to fill the gap and swifly lopped off the heads of the offending Newts.

On the Newt’s right, he tried to work a gang of Newts around Cadence’s line but they were cut down as well…

So here’s how turn #2 ended… over a dozen Newt casualties to one Cadet.
 


Turn #3 -- Was just about mopping up…




This played out very nicely. Cadence used her superior position, superior arms, and superior training to handily defeat a far more numerous foe. Now I'm anxious to pit these two force against each other in a full scenario -- and get my sailors into some even bigger battles!  :D

I'm going to figure out a way to get a Pom Pom onto Venus. Even if I have to have Hinterland Miniatures send me one themselves. lol
