Second Group of Heroes for Blackstone Fortress

 

Hi All!

Whew, it's been a hot one in the prairies these past few weeks. To be honest I really don't mind as I know we'll be complaining about the cold before we know it. I just wish we could bottle up this heat up and dole it out over the winter...

Okay! Here are another four intrepid adventurers from the Blackstone Fortress base set. Today we have:

Amallyn Shadowguide the Eldar Ranger.

UR-025, the mysterious robot with a dark (and very ancient) past.

Pious Vorne, the loonbag Imperial cult acolyte sporting her favourite accessory, a chainsaw/flamethrower(!).


And, Rein & Raus, the intrepid twin Ratling scouts.


Similar to the last batch, I kept these to an hour each for painting as I wanted to get them ready for gaming in a timely fashion. Most turned out okay, but a few suffered by the rushed brushwork (the the off-white armour of Amallyn and UR-025 look incredibly bland here - there is some shading there, honest!). Nevertheless, they're done and ready for mayhem in the Fortress. 

Speaking of which, next up I'll feature some of the nasty denizens of Blackstone Fortress.

Have a great week everyone!

Curt

  1. Lovely job - Rein and Raus are especially good, they look very battle hardened, like WW2 vets.

    1. Cheers Iain! Perhaps it's not as chic as a Versace handbag, but, really, who's going to point it out? ;)

  5. Another great batch of figures Curt! Yes I agree it would be great to bottle the heat so I could prime all through the winter. Where in the Prairies are you? I may be able to see you out the kitchen window

    1. Thanks Terry. We're in sunny Regina, though I expect the weather to turn to autumn weather within the next few weeks.

    1. Thanks Greg!! Sarah ran UR-025 and quite enjoyed his backstory. And, yes, Vorne's eviscerator would've come in very handy for some of the recent work meetings I've had to endure.
