I don't suppose you have any pics of it?
I assume you mean the gentlemen's club and not my battlezones scenery? I managed to find some pics online. You can just about see the stage and the pole in one of the pictures. He did the entire thing in a few days apparently. I really liked the seedy, purple interior. I had to dive one of my Enforcers behind the bar for cover, it would have been rude not to.

All looks good.

I like the minis, not as much as I liked your introductory text though. Made me chuckle it did.

What's next?

Thank you, glad it amused you. I'm going to get some photos of my Deadzone minis next, and some Rogue Trader era miniatures I've painted, then its on to seeing if I can reduce Lead/Plastic mountain. Then, with any luck, I may post up a battle report or two.

I really like the mining suit idea for the terminators. I have a couple of these plastic minis knocking about. I will take the guns (and skulls) off and add some heavy power tools/drills. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!  ;)
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

No problem. If you can get hold of some chainfists I think they would look good as mining equipment. If you can get hold of a Terminator Apothecary arm also, it would double up as a pretty decent drill.

I've been at the painting table beavering away at some old school minis; these three are going to make up part of an Inquisitor's Retinue. On the left is Knives Chou, a Semi Sentient Servitor. He was a renowned serial killer who was captured and underwent the servitor process. Most of his personality is gone except for his killer instinct and love of blades. In the middle is Fil Mitshule, a power armour clad former Guardsman with a love for fire. Last of all, on the right is Bob, so called because no one can pronounce his real name. He is a wondering Eldar, tagging along with the retinue until he can figure out the incredibly complex and inefficient Imperial transport network and hitch a ride back to his Craftworld.

Next are a couple of Rogue Trader era Space Marine in Crimson Fist livery. This Librarian and Medic (not apothecary, just a straight up battlefield medic) will head up a 20 man strong Crimson Fist Contingent I am currently painting up. I love the Crimson Fist colour scheme and think the deep red and dark blue goes well together.

I thought I would also post my previously painted Deadzone minis, as I will be using them in Rogue Stars and Rogue Trader games. The Enforcers are wonderfully generic and would make great space cops, mercenaries, planetary defence force troopers or Arbites. The minis aren't great, but they are cheap, and can be rescued by a good paint job. I don't think I rescued them, but I made them presentable at least. As an aside, I actually like Mantic's background fluff for Warpath and Deadzone and wish they would spend more time developing the IP rather than flitting around on constant Kickstarters.

I've painted the Enforcers with close combat weapons in black, to make them look stealthy, like space ninjas. The Peacekeeper was painted more recently and I have gone with a very dark blue colour scheme to make it look more like a space cop. More Peacekeepers to follow once I've painted them.

Next are the Plague. I like these minis, like the Enforcers they will do for any number of systems and settings. They are perfect zombie space mutants and will also pad out my Cultist ranks for my planned Rogue Trader campaign.

These are more mature Plague creatures, their infections at a later stage. I'm not too keen on the smaller ones, but the big creature reminds me of the Mother in Gears of War.

Some Plague Trooper specialists. I have about 8 more Plague troopers to paint up, as well as some more of the larger creatures; an Abomination and a Plague infected Terraton.

The Rebs now. These are my favourite Deadzone faction, now made better with Deadzone 2.0. With the increased customisability of the army list you can pretty much add any model you want to your Rebs, from any figure range, and there should be something in the list to equip them, and something in the fluff to explain their presence. They are basically a rag tag band of humans and aliens who have come together to oppose the GCPS. Any Rogue Stars players looking for some aliens would do well to pick up some of these minis. I'm also planning to add some aliens from CP models to my Rebs to flesh out their ranks a bit more. Here we have a Terraton, the Rebel Commander and two generic human troopers.
