Nice Job. Though they are low on detail the ERM Corporate line has some very nice figs that scale well with current lines (read "tall") and seem to paint up a treat.  Good to see more pics of these figs as they don't show up painted often.

Yes, they are pretty tall. I found that the lack of detail made them quite fun to paint. Not as busy as some other minis we could mention ;)

Got in three games of Dredd yesterday.
Me and a mate played through the Cursed Earth Desperadoes scenarios.
Here are some pics from the day.

My mutant bounty hunters and my mate's Citi Def went head to head on a scrap raid.

My muties were on a rooftop about to grab some scrap.....



But the Citi Def had already got them in their sights!



Heavy Spit guns make short work of muties :(

After taking a bit of a drubbing, the last man standing decided to bugger off, but not before giving them a piece of his mind!



The next game was a raid on a mutie compound.



The Citi Def snuck into position;








My muties tried to get a few shots into them from behind the safety of their walls, but didn't achieve much. Mr Heavy Spit Gun managed to saunter up to a gap in the wall and unload into my muties face :(




The Citi Def medic managed to sneak into the fort, and as he suffers from Futsie I decided to close him down fast!



He legged it, I gave chase, but he was too fast for me!





Eventually, the Citi Def got the higher ground and I gave in.

The third scenario was the Citi Def trying to leg it through Cursed Earth, with my Muties  coming on from the sides to attack them if they could pass a will check.



They got about a third of the way down the board before my guys pounced!



My cleaver carrying mutie made short work of them......aided by the Futsie a Medic :) I rolled off against my mate, got control of him, and managed to take out two one of his guys!

All in all, a great day of fighting.

That looks great.  Like the Citi-Def models used earlier, the game shots also remind me directly of another recent strip.  One where Citi- Def went on some sort of survival course in the Cursed Earth.  I think that Koburn and Rico featured.

Brilliant stuff regardless.

These Citi Def belong to my mate Rich, and be mentioned a similar story actually. A training mission was the reason he came up with for his lads being in the Cursed a Earth.

I just remembered, it was Billy Zane Block Citi-Def on Cursed Earth maneuvers.

Not that it really matters or anything, but it's nice to be able to cite precedent for the encounter :)

This was the Malcolm Tierney Block Citi-Def, and the members were Sergeant Andy McShane, Col. Felsham, Pvt. Jesus Montalban, Pvt. Parton, and Medic Dr. Krippen.

Been a while, and I'd totally forgotten about this  :o

Got a nice old school marine done today. Should fit right in on this table.

Those are great!  The weathering on the marine really works nicely, but even better is the very cold palette on the guardians. 

Really nice :)

Those are really quiet superb!
The marine is great, with the extreme shading working really well on him, and those Eldar are amazing, the limited pallette that you have chosen is wonderful.

I am really glad that you have come back to this.
