Chronoscope gaming.

Recommended Posts

I bought a bunch of these because I like the look. I'll decide which game they would work with later. The zombies and pulp heroes I bought may go with Call of Cthulhu. Or they could be used in Shadowrun, a Pulp Heroes Basic Role Playing game or even Traveller whichever I find the time to run this year. I bought some specifically to be part of my Dark Eldar army, Moxy (50115) and a Sligg Warrior (50017) are retinue for the Archon. I would buy more Sligg just to build some sort of army with them. And finally I am buying some to be a part of a scenery piece I am building, people to be in rooms in a three story tower.

Here are a bunch of NOVA guys we painted up and are using for Clone Trooper for our Star Wars RPG.

 

Next on the schedule is to paint up a squad blue like the Coruscant Senate Guards.

I never would have wanted to play any game in Lucas' setting until I saw your paint on some Reaper figs. Wow.

I've used the western figures for Gutshot!, although I'd dearly love to see gun rules for the Warlord system.

 

Zombies and zombie hunters are most useful for a variety of zombie games.

Looks like this one was resurrected, so I'll play.

 

My Chronoscope figs will eventually see action in a couple of different games.

 

Post apoc useable types (Rex, Rosie, etc) in games of Wastelands, and possibly "Nuclear renaissance" if the rules ever come in.

More Sci-fi'ish figs in skirmish games like Blasters and Bulkheads and In The emperor's Name

I've got a platoon of Nova Corp that will be used in platoon size games like Tomorrow's War and Warengine/Shockforce.

 

Lastly, it's a long shot, but if I can convince the group to play the new Osprey Steampunk/Victorian game "In Her Magesty's Name" then there will be a few Chronoscope figs in there also.

I picked up a Rex to use for SpineSpur and I'm getting the four elemental heroines for a 'fun' painting project. I'm debating about making a diorama with them and maybe a few villains.

I've been using the IMEF and a few others (Not really sure which range some of them are from though) for working out the rules of a skirmish game with some friends. A friend has a lot of heavily converted Cyber-Reavers for his force.

 

Mine currently has the IMEF for the majority with a few others that are close enough by other companies for specialists and a heavy power armor type.

 

I think there are only 3 players out of 10 who aren't using any of them, and 2 of those are using more expensive options and the last just had a bunch of mantic ghouls and zombies mixed and matched for his necromancer.

I'm putting together an Inquisitorial retinue (GW's WH40K universe). I'm using the Novas from my Vampire Kickstarter package as the Inquisitor's troopers because I like the look. (I need to post pictures or even a link to pictures.) I'm planning on using the IMEF for Inquisitor troopers as well.
