Thanks guys the I was aming for a gritty military look so I am quite happy with this. This is new ground to me as these are the first sci-fi figures  I have done.I decided my force needed a commander . So here is my first attempt at sculpting it started as a I -Kore figure basics of tunic are done epaluettes and start on his fur hat. I still need to add detail and finish the hat and add a respirator.


So what's the ballistic stopping power of a water melon helmet then?  :D

Have to agree with Chris re overall blandness sorry, plus it looks like you use dip? GET BACK SATAN!!!!

;)

Looking pretty sharp there - I assume you are planning on adding tubes to the respirator?

Aha! I thought that was the collar, but I see what you mean when I take a closer look at it.

Will be easier to envision it when it's painted I am sure, but it's coming along nicely.  :)

Great work on the commander.

Have you done some conversion work on the regular troops? They look different somehow...

The Commander looks really good, I am looking forward to seeing him painted  :-*

Thats some good GS work right there too.  I really cant bring myself to get my GS level beyond the mosts basic of basic.  I really must work at it a bit, your commander is inspiring.

The regulars are stock bar the guy with the grenade launcher who had his rifle replaced with a GW grenade launcher .I hope to have the commander painted by tomorrow.
I have some GW steel legion figures that I was thinking of doing up as militia troops not sure of them though still looking to see if I can find something better.

A useful little force.

Given the uniform colour and the insignia on the latest mini, I couldn't help but wonder if they have commercial sponsorshp ...

No, that was reserved for the Tornado F2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panavia_Tornado_ADV

The Tornado F2 (sometimes written as F.2) was the initial version of the Tornado ADV in Royal Air Force service, with 18 being built. It first flew on March 5, 1984 and was powered by the same RB.199 Mk 103 engines used by the IDS Tornado, capable of four wing sweep settings, and fitted to carry only two underwing Sidewinder missiles. Serious problems were discovered with the Foxhunter radar, which meant that the aircraft were delivered with concrete and lead ballast installed in the nose as an interim measure until they could be fitted with the radar sets. The ballast was nicknamed Blue Circle, which was a play on the Rainbow Codes nomenclature, and a British brand of cement called Blue Circle.
You really couldnt make it up... :o lol
