Colonial wargaming in the grim darkness of the far future.
I forgot to add this guy to the “miniatures painted in 2015 total” in my last post. Its a gretchin space pirate that was included in the “Oldhammer Legacy Crew“ group project. This guy, along with his twenty seven or so scurvy space dogs are en route to their new owner now. Check out the link for more details on how the project worked.
The criteria for the model was that it had to be a “space pirate” and it had to have a “turquoise” spot colour. The model had to be supplied with a plain black base, so that the person who ended up with the lot can base them in a matching fashion.
The model is a plastic GW gretchin with a Maxmini goblin pirate head. I do like painting greenskins.
I painted another tiny space cat.
Im involved in an online RPG with some toy soldier buddies at the moment. Its a lovingly prepared framework of shenanigans with the express purpose of encouraging us all to try to make each other laugh, in spaaace. My character – L’Oreal Wangst: Eldar Outcast psychically bonded with a gyrinx recently, so I decided to paint one to match.
This was of course engineered by the GM, who knew that if he put a space cat in the game that I would go for it and that I would likely paint a model for it. So I was either manipulated in an embarassingly transparent fashion or it was simply a win/win situation. I choose to see it as the latter.
“Cassis” was the smallest miniature feline that I could find in my “Familiars” box. I cant even remember where I got it (if you know then please comment). I think that its technically a “vampire cat”, hence the larger teeth than usual, barely visible in the grainy photo above. Frankly the teeth are barely visible in hand either…
My space cat miniature usual suspects to date are shown above (click the image to make them easier to see).
