The Rangers and Pirates are produced by the people who wrote the Skirmish Sanguin ruleset and were part of the Maalinti Rangers Kickstarter. The Somali's weren't intended to be Pirates but they'll do just fine in the role. The companies name is Radio Dish Dash. I have yet to play the rules but they seem very comprehensive and are based on a percentile die role.
In the back row you can see the four Deltas
The first three rows are. I went with a generic desert cammo which is "close enough". The miniatures are superb but a bit on the delicate side.
5 plastic Frostgrave soldiers that I never got around to painting last year. These are very nice generic figures and can serve a lot of roles in any medieval skirmish or RPG game.
Next up are the Somali's - I only got 12 with the kickstarter which is disappointing because I don't see them listed for retail sale.
A close up of 6 of the pirates with their leader sporting a very nice new set of Communist bloc cammo fatigues.
And the other six. These were a lot of fun to assemble and paint and I would really like to get some more.
That's it for painting today - Perhaps I'll get some more in later this week.
Both the rangers and the pirates will be part of the SOCOM and Sorcery game at Historicon - each will be a player faction. More on that as the Challenge progresses.
Great work Miles. Modern figures, eh? This seems like a new twist for you. I really like the Radio Dish Dash models, especially the Somalis. Their wiry physiques seem quite realistic and the skirmishers have wonderful animation. Now you need a Blackhawk and a couple Little Birds to set the scene.
And Mr. Miles moves back to the front of the points roster...
