Overlord's Sanwar
« on: January 10, 2010, 04:33:08 PM »
Well, thanks to Malamute, Bullshot, Thunderchicken, GamerMac etc, I have finally given in to the VSF madness.  Rather than one of the more traditional forces I have gone with Sanwar.  This is because I'm unlikely to play many games with them, so they will see service in Post Apoc games and as opposition for a Stargate team.

Whilst waiting for the undercoat on the miniatures to dry I started messing around with some of my bits box.  Long after the paint had dried I was left with these:

An 'Styx' impervious suit (Domo arigato Mr Roboto). Stood next to the colour test I did for the Sanwar troops.


A 'Hawkwind' sonic cannon. I need to build the power source/amplifiers (Which will go all the way up to 11)

Very nice Overlord. I do like the impervious suit. Are we going to meet this force on Atlantis?

Excellent. You could make a two man team with a launcher that attaches a resonance frequency modulator that matches the vehicles frequency to the much larger Tesla cannon down range. Not only would you disable the target vehicle but all the rivets popping out would make for a really nasty anti personnel effect for nearby troops. lol

Oooh yes, lovely work all round. I've got a stack of those flight stands I was using for my Brigade Nefs. I never thought of using them for 28mm builds........ until now.  :)

Keep it coming Overlord.
