USAriadna: Devil Dog

Finally had enough of being fed kibble.
Almost finished the USAriadna starter box.

Really happy with how this figure has turned out.  Great sculpt and the paint job is quite good too!  I have copied Angel Giraldez' step by step with a few minor tweaks and I'm quite happy with how it has all turned out.

Line Kazaks

I am very excite!
10 point cheerleaders are finally done.  

I can now field a viable Ariadnan force!

Old sculpts don't excite me but they turned out quite well with some paint.  I even had a left over Kazak from Total Reaction 2 2014 and I painted her to complete the set.  

So many goals acheived!

Foxtrot: Light Grenade Launcher

Old sculpt
I confess- I got fed up with this model and tried to finish it as hastily as possible.  

Compared to the new version it looks quite dated.

Tankhunter- AP HMG

Stop!  Snarks!
Another Tankhunter finished.  Armed with an armour piercing HMG he should (hopefully) put down any TAGs and Heavy Infantry that stray into range.

Being an older sculpt he is also a bit cartoony but at a distance he looks fine... that's good enough for me!

AAR: INFINITY: 300 points- Combined Army vs. PanOceania: N3- Highly Classified

Credit: Eduardo Gonzalez- "Battle for Yaletown".
It's time to cut the apron strings and try something new.

After spending some time painting some Shasvastii figures it was time to try out the Combined Army properly.

As I steadily painted more figures and rebased my Charontid (for N3) I did some further reading up on the Combined Army forums about its performance on the table top.  The chatter was not encouraging.  Low order pool.  Expensive elite units.  The consensus was that CA is a difficult faction to play.

Did someone just say difficult faction?  So I've moved from Morats to this?!

You're joking right?

Traktor Mul: Uragan and Katyusha

WALL-E gets an upgrade.
The club challenge was to paint models for the month of October.

I had been putting off painting these models for ages.  My excuse was that I was waiting for an airbrush to be able to highlight the domes of the remotes....

... Well the airbrush finally arrived and I could no longer make excuses.

I present the Traktor Muls!
