Forces of the Farpoint Sector


Well I'm back from a very long day of work and am looking forward to a little bit of relaxing painting time but thought that I would take the opportunity of a lovely evening to grab some quick photos of my assorted warbands progress!

 Scurvy Crew of Midas Blackstar

No game is complete without some piratical villains to terrorise the shipping lanes and shoot up any ports they happen to be carousing in!

 1st Squad, 2nd Platoon, XVIIIth Regiment Catachan Jungle Fighters

The XVIIIth Regiment is engaged in a vicious guerrilla war with the Indig Orkish clan that inhabit the Jungles of New Viridia and are under the command of the Viridian Corporation.

 Orkish Askari: Mordor Rifles, Bloodaxe Clan

The strong arm brute squads and raiders that the disgraced governor, Alexandr Vosk has been using to undermine the rule of the sectors new Governor General, Laars van Dorn.

 Imperial Guard PDF Squad Valor

A proud and surprisingly well trained cadre of seasoned planetary defence force troopers operating on Farpoint. 
 Uzgob's Marauders, Goff Clan 

A Brutal warlord intent on expanding his empire from the Lawless Quarter beyond Imperial space and not above raiding for booty and slaves.

Freelance Talent

An example of the eclectic ne'er do wells that inhabit the rough frontier sector that is Farpoint and keen to earn a credit or two by joining other forces and lending them their expertise.

As you can see, there's quite a bit of variety to keep me entertained for some time to come and each warband is starting to look half decent too but they all need some new members to bring them up to full muster and I also want to add some small vehicles to each force as well as dropping in some Savage Snakebite Orks, Eldar Raiders, Imperial spies, rogue agents, lawful ships crews and law enforcement, not to mention Space Marines and lots of other gubbins!

All the best! 


  1. Man, I LOVE that pirate crew. I just can't get over your hulking AI model you kitbashed. Sooo cool. But the whole crew comes together really nicely through the gold, pink and blue. Really fun, demented, rogue trader esc... Just sweet overall.

  2. They look great and each group has a distinct look. Wish We lived closer and I would just drop off some of my lost projects and let you give them new life.

  3. Eclectic is good!

    I like the paintjob you did on the old Mechwarrior mini. Could you share the recipe please?

    The mix of small warbands you have is great & I can't wait to see your kitbashing vehicles....a personal favourite of mine.

    Well done.

    1. Hi!

      The Mechwarrior miniature was primed white and then given a generous coat of Golden Yellow (an old GW paint I have had for about ten years!) and then given a wash of watered down Red Earth Daler Rowney acrylic artists ink, a very handy range indeed!

      Once dry, I gave the edges a bit of a highlight with a light yellow (lemon yellow from Ral Partha Europe I think).

      Weathering was added with chips painted on using Umber and finally a light drybrush around the legs with chestnut brown to give a worn, dust covered look.

      Hope that helps!

  4. This is a fantastic project! I love the Aliens feel of the PDF squad, and the pirates in pink are so campy.
