Inspired to paint by a fantastic game!


Inspired to paint by a fantastic game!

Really really enjoyed this game so far so was inspired to put a few commissions to one side and get the minis painted pronto.

Top marks on background and stories, these chracters really come to life!

I would highly recommend this to anyone out there, Great background story,endless strategy, action and fun but relatively simple to pick up and understand, it also uses a scenario auto generating system (SAGS) to create a different mission based game each time you play!

In terms of the actual game mechanics think xcom computer game meets board game!

These are done in what I would call my cheap n cheerful speedpainted style (over a couple of mornings)

Just straight forward airbrush and line techniques for a bold eyecatching finish, no point spending too much time on them as they will recieve a lot of heavy traffic and inevitably end up thrown in a zip bag and stuffed into a once tidy box at the end of our gaming sessions in the early hours when we are bleary eyed and feeling bilious from too much tea and Haribo!

Nice job! I must say they look a lot better than the "hand painted set" sold on the website...
