Entering the Deadzone

Afternoon guys and girls,

A normal weekly update for you here. This time some pictures of my much threatened WiP Deadzone strike forces.

I've had a starter set of Enforcers and various other deadzone bits such as Terrain and a gaming mat knocking around for a while now. After having a few games with Nife and Rictus at our last meet up and the game itself going down well I figured it was time to pull my finger out and get some painting done.

Here are all the Enforcers that have got paint on them so far. There are only 4 more that need painting plus 2 sentry guns. Most of the below guys still need tidying up and finishing touches on them:

2 Regular Enforcers and a Sniper

Assault Enforcers - Used red to show their speciality


I have gone for more basic paint jobs than on my infinity stuff so no mixing of colours and other more time consuming methods. I have however been weathering them with sponge.

Next up is a WiP Mercenary Asterian Character, Nastanza:

Speaking of Asterians after the success of our games I took the plunge and ordered the Sky Shadow Infiltration force bundle from Mantic. This gave me an entire Asterian starter force plus a box of Asterian specialists, the new expansion book, wave 2 cards and a pre release character for a rather good price.

I have yet to build the specialists but have managed to get the starter box built:

I do rather like these guys, very much remind me of star wars battle droids or the Geth from Mass Effect. Fluff wise they are all drones controlled from afar well apart from the commander who takes to the field in person.

Rather looking forward to getting some paint on them.

In my final nerdy moment of the week I stumbled upon some trinkets for about 30p each:

Me being a bit of a green lantern nerd I picked up the rings of my favourite corps as a laugh :P

Thinking of Comics, my normal partner in crime in comic book related stuff(he did get me started on them again after all) Mr Feral has started up a little blog where he reviews some go check it out if you like the odd superhero Sharky Reads Comics

  1. I wasn't expecting a shout-out, so cheers good squire. I spell Sharkey with an "e" by the way...;)

    I wish I had a Green Lantern ring, I've seen a film replica one in Forbidden Planet for around 15 squid I think, might have to get that one day.

    The only comics collectible freebies I have are a load of Flashpoint badges and a couple of promotional Walking Dead ones.

    Back to the minis, lovely khaki camo there and the bases are looking nice and sci-fi!

    Did you see that GW will be doing another limited run of Space Hulk? What are your thoughts on that? I have never even played my 2009 edition one, the shame!
