First up is a small unit of modern 28mm Operators. These are from Spectre Miniatures and are part of the Kickstarter I back a year or so ago.
These Operators were painted up in a very generic colour scheme so that they can be used for almost any nations forces. They could also be used as deniable operatives or private military contractors (mercenaries).
This small unit of 4 guys should give me 20 points to my total and to the modern challenge.
Also completed this week was a trip to Ikea to finally (after 5 years of debating over what to do for display in my painting room) put in some cabinets for display of painted figures and storage or terrain.
Here is what I came up with, half display and half storage. Cabinets were easy to build (10 minutes each) but the lighting was the complicated part. While simple in theory (drill hole and wire) doing it in a clean organized way took a while, probably an hour per cabinet, meaning 6x longer than building the actual cabinet itself. Then a few minutes to put the doors on.
I am still in process of filling the cabinets, and will already be out of room, as I have way too many armies in storage to actually put them all out, but wanted to put a picture up to show what I have been up to.
I really must check out the Spectre minatures, you have tempted me with these cracking chaps. Your cabinet area looks ace - all painters desks should be messy - its compulsory...
