Foxtrot- Shotgun

Keep this for close encounters.
I've developed a healthy appreciation for Foxtrots.  Used primarily as the Forward Observer specialist for button pushing- they also double as artillery spotters- which is supremely useful for taking out big targets that I just don't want to face.

They are AVA4 in USAriadna and it was time I pushed this AVA to its limit.

USAriadna: Maverick Rifle

Back in action!
Real Life can really take over your hobby life!

But rest assured- I have remained faithful to Infinity despite dabbling in a few other systems.

Let's get on with the show shall we?

A Manly Doll House- Armoury and Guard House.

Best doll house ever!
Every so often I get fed up painting miniatures and want to experiment with some terrain.

I've always been fascinated with terrain that has lots of little details in it.  Most of the time I never bother detailing terrain- after all, it's the miniatures that are the stars and they take the most time.  Still, a few simple techniques with an airbrush don't take too much time and the effect is great!

I even did furniture!

Marauder Heavy Flamer no. 2

Another chance to try NMM!
... And not doing that well!

Another one for the practice records.

It was interesting painting a second version of a model I've already painted.  I improved on the skin- he looks definitely less pale and his armour turned out better.  Improvement!  Victory!!!

Marauder: Shotgun

I like to keep this handy... for close encounters.
Good for clearing out rooms in active turn!

I enjoyed painting this guy the most.  Easy weapon, not too much skin and the armour turned out quite well!

Marauder: Molotok

Would you like AP rounds with that?
I'm of two minds as to how useful this guy will be.  A high burst AP weapon is great (especially in a link team of 5!) but with only one wound and limited range he can be easily taken out.

Marauder: Sniper Rifle

Big suppressor is best suppressor
The other Marauder with MSV1, he will be paired with the Marauder HRL for some good ARO action.

He is only armed with a normal Sniper rifle though, meaning he just does Shock damage.  No double action rounds or armour piercing rounds for him.

Marauder: Heavy Rocket Launcher

MSV1... for those ALEPH snipers.
And don't forget fire damage for those pesky ODD enemies.

This man was the first to get a lick of paint on.  Forward deploy, fire damage and ODD- with an extra burst from Fireteam Haris (or Core)- made him a mandatory figure for Ariadna.

USAriadna: Fire Team Core: Marauders

Let it be known that the planet broke before the Guard did.
It's been a long time between posts- such is life for the average hobbyist!

That being said, a great many things have happened- the Emperor is dead and so is Warhammer 40K 7th Edition.  To commemorate such a momentous event I have cheekily painted my own version of Kasrkin- USAriadna Marauders.

This is the first of a 6 part series on the Marauders.  They'll be taken out to prove the power of their MSV1 binoculars so stay tuned!

Space Hulk: Brother Claudio.

Come here for a hug, Mr. Genestealer.
With CanCon2017 out of the way, it's time to get through my backlog on my desk.

A lengthy campaign has begun!
