Anyway, enough blather, on to the the miniatures!
The miniatures and figures pictured here are from a fairly wide variety of sources.
First, a team of MAGA Militia in their distinctive red baseball caps. These guys are from Spectre Miniatures. Great sculpts, though the weapons are 'true scale' which means rather fragile.
Then four members of a Mexican Sicario hit team. As a certain silly Orange Man described them, they are 'Bad Hombres'. These are from Spectre Miniatures.
Finally a trio of local survivors just trying to stay alive. I imagine these as ex-military service personnel armed and clothed in an ad-hoc mixture of gear and equipment. These three are also from Spectre.
I'm imagining several more factions, militias, cults, etc. which should be fun and perhaps raise an eyebrow or two. :)
The terrain shown here is a mix of stuff as well.
Now, the final administrative bits.
The announcement on the various prizes will be in a little over two weeks (Sunday, April 8th). These will be:
- The six Threshold prizes for 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 and 2500 points.
- Judges Choice (chosen by me)
- Sarah's Choice (chosen by Lady Sarah)
- Challenger's Choice (chosen by you lot!)
- Awards for the top finishers in the points standings
For Challenger's choice we're going to do it similar to previous years. I want all of the participants to send me their top three choices of the Challenge. The deadline is next Sunday (the 25th). It does not have to be in any particular order as I will place them a big gallery and we can all vote from the entire group of nominations. That way we'll all get reminded of all the excellent work that was produced during the Challenge. I'll give out prizes for the top three on April 8th.
Again, a HUGE thanks to this year's Minions: Jamie, Michael, Miles, Millsy, Ray, Sander and Sidney - I could not have kept this show on the road without you. You guys were amazing.
The past three months were amazing.
YOU all were amazing.
And as tired as I am, I'm already looking forward to the next one. :)
Thanks again everyone for indulging me in my madness.
