For my ongoing Cartel/bank robbery guys projekt for Spectre Operations I decidet to do something new for the bases.
I wanted to give them the intention of standing inside a bank (or possibly the hacienda of an enemy cartel, who knows;). The bases will get a nice marble floor scattered with some fitting things like shells and bank notes.
Modern British Army section
For a bit of modern 28mm skirmish gaming I decidet to again build up a Black Watch unit. The miniatures I´m using are Empress Minatures British army soldiers. Other than my Bolt Action WWII project these dudes all wear camouflage uniforms so that was a hard thing to tackle.
For now I finished my Ii clan warband. I added 6 Perry Ashigaru and 2 monks (Kensei and GTStudio) Since I mostly use them for IHMN and Daisho these got me now a formidable skirmish force. Daisho is a skirmish game set in feudal Japan (which even could include mystical creatures and such) based on the IHMN ruleset.
We are playing a lot of In Her Majesty´s Name games lately and I tried the Samurai list for the first time a few weeks ago. Since that I´m expanding my collection of Ii clan Samurai to use them either there or for Ronin.
Waller´s orders this evening were clear. Project X should get their hands on a Venom probe. Get in, steal the venom and get out with it again. A quiet simple plan disregarding the fact that Bane and his mercenaries were the ones defending the Venom… But its “Suicide Squad” for a reason.
Its been a while since I last played Batman Miniatrure Game (or BMG from now on) and since Knight Models dropped the 2nd edition shortly we thought about getting back in the game and write an aar.
We decidet to go with a reputation value of 300 and not using any strategies to get back in the game easy.
Since I was in desperate need for some henchmen for my BMG crew I bought myself the new Batman starter crew. Knight Models new range of high quality resin models started of with some new crew starter. For the Brave and the Bold the box contained a new Batman (Arkham Asylum version) which finally got smoke and some really great combat abilitys (counter attack and mixed combat style). The henchmen consits of three Arkham guardsmen one armed with a expendable baton (reach), one with a shotgun and finally a guy with an assault rifle (lots of blood damage).
the new Arkham Asylum Batman
fits in quiet well with Batgirl
The miniature are all high quality and really nice casted resin. They are a bit smaller then Knight Models previous metal range but that does not bother me. I painted them using a quick and easy wash and layer paintjob to get them tabletop ready fast enough only Batman recieving some more attantion on his greenish armour.
ltr: shotgun, baton, assault rifle
Since I want to play Batman more often with the 2nd edition rules I finally could use my already finished Batgirl model to get them to around 200rep. They alredy announced a new Batgirl rebirth model which will find the way into my collection for shure.
+++Nobody expected that operation Sea Lion will end like that. The Prime Minister is missing, German troops spread over England and the war in western Europe seems to be over. For Oberst Dr. Ilsa Faust and her secret Agency “Projekt Medusa” the situation could not be more advantageous. The time to seperate the project and all achievents from the germans has come. They now can act in the shadows, even more than before, blaming the germans for everything that they have to do to praise the great old ones.+++
Intimidating, clever, detemined. The leader of “Projekt Medusa”, D. Ilsa Faust is just as cruel she is beautiful.
After a long break of painting 32mm miniatures I did the first one for my Pulp Alley league. I wrote a little background for an agency which came out like a mix between a Chthulu cult and Hydra.
