Ghar Battle Squad

I bought the box set of Warlord Games' sci-fi wargame Beyond the Gates of Antares a while back, where it sat for along time untouched.  But this week I've having a bit of a "stay-cation" so I thought I would get some painting done.  Rather than buy new miniatures, I figured I would give BtGoA a try.

These figures were fairly easy to assemble, except the legs.  It's worth letting each part try before attaching the next, and the small, pincer-like legs don't have enough surface area to glue easily to the flimsy plastic bases and popped off even after gentle handling.  I had to really glom the glue on the bases to get the figures to stick.

After that though, they were pretty easy and fun to paint, with a nice bit of detail but not too much, if you know what I mean.  They work well with a black ink wash when you're done.

So, first unit of Ghar done, and as large infantry count as two points apiece.

3D printed storage tanks

A second lot of wargaming terrain made by my brother-in-law on a 3D printer and painted by me.  My juvenile brain makes jokes about this pair.  Comments welcome!

September Ork Boyz

These fellows are from the Battle for Vedros, the starter game for Warhammer 40K  I picked up a while back. As it turns out, this is just the tip of a green iceberg, because an old friend of mine from college gave to my son a huge box of unpainted orks, including a lot of vehicles, so and I have a huge project ahead of us.
