It Came from the Lightbox: Nomads & Mercenaries

I painted up a couple of random Nomads & Mercenaries to fill out some options.

Lupe Balboa, obviously.

I needed a second Missile Launcher and Sniper Rifle so I have better options when linking Alguaciles.  Also, a fifth Jaguar when running Corregidor.

Khal Drogo to be my third Yuan Yuan (first non-Fat Yuan Yuan)

This is my Raoul Spector conversion: mostly a Bashi Bazouk, with a few bits from a Hellcat to make it feel more like a Nomad.  He’ll also fill in as a Yuan Yuan if it ever makes sense for me to run four Yuan Yuans.

A Krakot Renegade.  These guys seem really useful, so it’s good I’ve got one painted up.

I also painted up a Xenotech I’m pretty happy with, but he’s got to be held back for the Mayacast thing.

It Came from the Lightbox – Nomads & StarCo

It’s been a while since I had the lightbox out, so while photographing the first of my Yu Jing, I took the chance to photograph some of the random figures I’ve painted since the last time I had it out.

Nothing fancy: just some assorted Nomads and models used by StarCo, with results that range from “satisfying” to “well, at least they’re painted.”








It came from the Lightbox: More Nomads

I painted up a few more minis while waiting for some terrain to show up in the mail.

Between that terrain being delivered and a last couple of weeks to see if I can get anything together for Historicon, this’ll probably be the last painting post I make for a bit. (Which is a shame, ’cause I’d just started getting some momentum back up here.)

Anyway:

Bandits are rad.  They just are.  I don’t know why I think 90’s urban camo is the dumbest thing but also the coolest thing, but I do, so I was happy to have an excuse to use it on the Bandit figures.

I’m still struggling with non-Caucasian skin.  This came out… okay, but not the way I imagined it would.  Carlota’s a Tomcat and Tomcats are great; I only got her because I really needed a second Zondcat.

Two Midnight Sun Analysts: the one on the left is the standard one, and the one on the right is the Infinity RPG variant.  In space, you can have purple muttonchops. =
