Nice work.
Those colours choices are inspired.

Yet another addition to my Guilder gang - an autogun-toting henchmen from the same 1988 Space Pirates range as the chap with striped trousers.

Yet another figure scoring high on character and not so well on anatomy or execution of the sculpt. You've got to like his backwards-worn cap though!

If you read my blog, you'll know about the Brat Giveaway competition. If not, I offered to convert and paint a Brat ganger to a custom design and send the resulting figure to the winner. I've just finished painting the chap up - first ever attempt at checks and I'm pretty happy with the results!

Very nice, really characterful.  He looks to me a bit like an older Bratt who knows that he should have grown out of it by now, but cant let go.

Nice checks too.

Thanks guys!

Very nice, really characterful.  He looks to me a bit like an older Bratt who knows that he should have grown out of it by now, but cant let go.

Maybe that's why he has a receding hairline - he doesn't actually shave it, it's just male-pattern baldness ;)

Finally, a second Nomad to hang around with the first! He's veering dangerously far from RT, being based on a model from 1999, but he's designed for the right era / gaming ethos!





Lots of greenstuff added to 'Brains' from the old Last Chancers squad:

Just noticed your thread, what a treat to see them all in one go!  :o  :-*

The Guild members are the no1 for me so far :)

Thanks! I must admit, it's really satisfying to adapt a model and entirely recreate it as something else. I picked up a whol bunch of Foundry 17th Century figures recently and I'm full of ideas to turn them into something else (just need to get on and do it!).

This sounds really interesting, I have a bunch of Foundry civilians too, 18th century though, curious to see what you come up with and then shamelessly will nick your ideas :D
