After working for a month I finally got a day off and enjoyed finishing up these guys. These are the last of the AoBR ork troops. I have the Nobs and the boss to finish but they can wait. Sorry for the crappy picture, my wife needed me to help her look up some articles (My school library is bit better). Does that make me her research assistant?

Next up, some Aruk!  It looks Like Bridge Miniatures is now carrying the Cobalt-1 Line! https://bridgeminiatures.com/product-category/cobalt-1/cobalt-1-aruk/

Love the dark skin tones on those Orks, Bahir!

As far as the Cobalt miniatures are concerned, I just received my order of Ar-Men and some Marines from Bridge Miniatures and I can say that I was delighted with the service (and the casting on the minis was top-notch). They were fantastic to deal with - can definitely recommend them!

Just as a by-the-by - is that a Praying Mantis prowling along behind the Ork gang?

Hi Hawkeye,

Thank you for your kind words.

Yes, its from Ral Partha. I found it in a bits box at a local game shop. It's stamped 199* the * is illegible.

I liked using the game mat, it has 1" squares that made it easy for the new players to move, fire and plan their strategy. I would like to get a larger mat, perhaps 4'x3' mat. I've seen several online, but I can't quite seem to find exactly what I want.

Something that's station or hive like that has 1" grid marks.  Does anyone know of anything like that?

No 1" grid, but the Deepcut Space Hulk mat (https://www.deepcutstudio.com/product/wargames-terrain-mat-space-hulk/) has the station/hive look about it and comes in 3'x3' and 4'x4' options.

I thought it might be instructive to keep a tally this year, but I'll probably just end up frightening myself.  (It was all looking good until Oct when some Kickstarters started delivering - add in Christmas and I'm going to be so far down this year.)

Three more Aruk to add to the gang. Now that Bridge Miniatures is producing them, I may pick up a command squad.

These were purchased from the company that produced them before Bridges. There was a lot of flash, and some miscasts parts. The leg on the little dude was misshapen, the guy with the ax had a hole in his leg and one of the troopers had a hole in the corner of the shoulder pad. But overall they have a lot of character and they were fun to paint.

WIP: Mr. Happy the living supercomputer (Brain in a jar from Reaper Minis) with his bodyguards. A bit more green stuff and I think they will be ready to be primed.

A few close-ups of the guards and Mr. Happy.

To Mr. Happy I've added a life support system (gotta keep the "water" in his tank fresh) and a screen where he can display images/text etc.

Two of the Chain-Pike(?) guards. They have a pistol if things get crazy.

Two of the veteran guards.

I have a few ideas of a few more to add to the crew, a special weapon and heavy weapon and I'm thinking of giving all the guards cloaks, or capes.  As always comments, tips, and suggestions are always welcome.

It has been a while, with school, work, and international travel for work. While I was in the USA a friend of mine gave me some 3D prints of some models he printed off of his resin printer. I was very impressed with the quality and now I have an itch to get my own printer.

The models are from Thingverse and the designer was Brexit. You can find them here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3028475

I got in on the Colony 87 Kickstarter... now to paint up some nobles for the Guard Dogs to guard.

Two more minis completed.

The first is a brain in a jar by Reaper Minis.  I've added a life support system to the back and a computer interface to the front. In the jar (it is hard to tell from the photo) is a vent that goes to the life support system in the back. I will be using it as a special character called Mr. Happy. Mr. Happy is an organic computer with Psi abilities. He is a repository of secret information that individuals prefer not to keep in the usual computer systems that could be hacked. While Mr. Happy can communicate telepathically, he(?) prefers to use machine-generated speech with accompanying emojis on his forward-facing display. Mr. Happy is always accompanied by bodyguards.

The second miniature is from Mantic Games. It is the Teraton Brawler from the Kickstarter and I am using it as a heavy for my Grymn assault squad.  He (she?) adds some much-needed close combat firepower to my Grymn mercenary unit. Compared to the Grymn, this guy (gal?) is huge!!

I finished my Heresy Trench Coat gangers. Fat Clark (Reaper Minis) is the gang leader and the gang serves at the behest of Dark Jedi Ezren (Converted Reaper mini). Just in time for a game tomorrow  :)
