Variety Bagbag 2.(Clint B) 6th Fede (150 points)

As you May be aware Not all posts were published last Monday. So instead of editing last weeks post in the hope it will be published here is a second post of things painted this week and due to go on Monday. (Fingers Crossed)

Rogue Stars Cultists.

Firstly here are 6 "Cultists" for the Sci Fi Game " Rogue stars".  They are all 28mm EMP Games. Link ) "Battle Brothers" Originally designed to be Sci Fi Monks a quick colour change and they become "Rogue Stars" Cultists. And 6 should be more than enough to  act as a crew. The one in all Purple is a cult leader, but only a minor leader at this stage and the one in the cream robes is to be a novice. New to the order and yet to prove tem selves. A Veteran in rogue Stars and a Green in that order. I will detail them further on my blog and maybe have the Sisterhood with them.

. I did start them all in red but as they did look like Santa I had to swap to Purple! As to preferred Psionic abilities at present I am not sure, "Mind Control" does sound like the obvious one but given how hard it is to action a number of easier ones might be preferable at the start. Although I do know some players would try for the harder ones to action first and hope to luck. But for me I think some like "Push" might be better as it can move an enemy (or one assumes even a friend) possibly out of the line of fire or into the line of fire. So may be very useful for retrieving wounded and unconscious allies....



WW1 British Cavalry.

Next up are 12 28mm Great war Miniatures British Cavalry.

 My Grandfather joined the army at the age of 14 (when the war broke out) and served in the great war (Not as a front line troop you needed to be 17 years and older to fight in the trenches! Instead his job was to take mules of supplies up to the trenches. Therefore he was under artillery fire much of the night as a trench without supplies does not function for long! And supplies were carried to the trenches under cover of darkness.). In 1919 one month after being demobbed he joined the 4th Hussars a cavalry unit based in Palestine. There he learnt to read and write and to properly ride horses. He won a few trophies for horse jumping. How many and of what calibre I do not know. This love of horses has continued in our family and last weekend (30th January) my sister qualified for Hickstead this year.

Back to the figures I have painted these for Matt and to be honest they were a right pain! But seeing them finished I am quite pleased with them. If nothing else they have been a pleasant break from 10mm Zulus (yes still finishing some off). Among the 12 troopers are a Musician Carrying 2 types of bugle) and an officer armed with a pistol and not a lance! They are both in the front rank but there is no need to look for  them. Trust me they are there!

Colour wise I have had to match another painter so they did take me slightly longer than planned as I needed to get the correct Vallejo paint to match. But all in all they are finished to my satisfaction and with luck I will not need to do any more for a while.

Which makes me wonder what will I be painting next!! Actually I do already know a very few more Zulus and the Terrain bonus round.

So until next week take care, have fun and paint like crazy!

Thank you Miles. But your comment and your scheduling make these two posts to  appear to be the same week. Kindly acknowledge they were sent on different weeks and that your busy work trip delayed YOU in submitting them.  The dates were clearly in the titles which you have since deleted. You as a minion are within your right to change things and I am equally within my rights to point this action out to You Curt and the other AHPC readers.
Wishing you Well Clint.


MilesR: Another great submission form Clint - I really like the Great War Car - very evocative!

  8. Lovely work Clint. I really like those Rogue Stars cultists but I must say those WWI cavalry are tremendous. They look superb all ranked-up with their lances and soft caps. Terrific stuff.

    1. Thank you Peter, the cavalry were a tricky paint the soldiers and the horses are cast together and the right arms are a separate casting.

  12. Great stuff Clint, that horse unit is great - they always look slightly odd given the fact machine guns were around then!

    1. Thank you Jamie. In a recent WW1 game the guy I was teamed with tried to charge machine guns with cavalry. The result was predictable!
