Well after quite a delay in finishing them, the first of the Summersby retainers have been finished!
I'd usually be able to churn out quite a number of painted figs in this scale quite quickly but the detail on the Demonworld sculpts is really top notch and required a bit of effort to get the best out of them and do them justice!
Hopefully I can get through the next five a little more quickly though but its hard to believe that they are 15mm scale and mounted on 15mm square bases!
Instead of going for a super bright colour scheme, I decided on a more downbeat look with a white and grey uniform mixed in with some non standard gear to give them a bit more of a sense of being a down and out unit following an out of favour duke and living on a wild frontier. Future units may have a more thrilling colour scheme but for the time being, I am quite happy with what I've got!
In other news, I have been re-examining my Battletech gubbins and having looked at the cost of buying new mechs, am seriously considering moving to a different scale. Theres some reasoning behind this though, firstly the Mechwarrior Dark Age plastic clicky mechs are still fairly easy to get hold of and secondly Reaper is going to be releasing CAV in plastic too! Its a sad state when its cheaper to buy a chunky 10mm scale figure than it is a 6mm scale one!
For anyone interested, its well worth a peek over on SPACEMAN SPIFFS BLOG as the stuff he produces in 10mm is truly amazing!
All the best!
