Five Parsecs: Mercs or Renegades..... who knows

These are the first set of the new molded figures I sculpted some while ago. Finally got round to painting them and sticking some of our tufts on the bases, although on 10 mm figures these small tufts do look huge. They're the from the new range that will be released shortly.

I recon these could be used as just about anything from Cultists to Mercs, Renegades or a Local Gang.

I have another group of 7 with a slightly different look whom I will paint in a different style, but they are essentially the same, different guns.
Thought if I was making some I may as well make a fair number so I had lots of options.

They are a bit larger than my original sculpts for characters and Unity forces, but not too much.

Presently I am in the midst of reworking my characters for the Odi Santi Crew, when done I will post.

KOW: Twilight Kin 1000 pts Complete

The Twighlight Kin army I have been working on for Mrs Daxio is almost done, a few bits need doing, but on the whole they are ready to hit the battlefield.

The skin tone is not finished quite yet, am not entirely happy with it.

A horde of Abyssal riders, slow for cavalry but lots of attacks.

A regiment of Darkscythe Chariots.

Lots of scratch built stuff here, enjoyed creating this model.

Bolt thrower.

A horde of Crossbow women.

A High Priestess of the Abyss.

A Dark Lord on a Black Pegasus.

The whole 1000 point force.

What else have I to do? Well I think that all the skin needs a black wash over it to give some detail back to it, and the Dark Pegasus needs its wings finishing off, some of it is unpainted.

Saga: First Saga 2 game at WWarriors GC

Last night Luke and I went to the WWarriors GC and played Saga, it was Luke's first game and my first with the Irish. So, learning as we go along.

We made some mistakes as I have bits of Saga 1 stuck in my head it seems.

Vikings ready to battle.

A rather punishing combat between our Hearthguard units ended with 2 dead a piece and a Fatigue also.

My dags were in the wrong place and wrong time, about to snatch failure from the jaws of defeat.

The Hearthguard units had another go and this time destroyed each other, then the Irish warriors had an incredible throw and removed 8 Vikings with their javelins, with help from Fir Bolg and 2 extra combat dice, but were then exhausted due to Odin being used on them. 

The Viking Berserkers then charged the Irish warriors and defeated them but also lost 3 of their number. 

 The second Irish warriors unit by the trees moved up and shot the remaining Berserker, while the Irish Warlord used his Javelins and then a combat to kill the Viking Warlord.

The Viking archers sniped off the Dag handler and that pretty much ended the game. We called it a draw as it was so close and it was a bit of fun to get us started. Luke seemed to enjoy the game, which is always good.

I have re-read many rules this morning and realised we made some silly mistakes but on the whole not too bad, looking forward to a re-match in a few weeks.
