When I first started miniatures gaming, my first game was the classic Space Crusade. That game will forever have warm feelings from me.
However, I soon started converting minis from the set, and using their bits in other conversions and I found that I really wanted to play Space Crusade, but didn't have any of the parts that I'd need.
So I went to my "bits box"- which is quite extensive these days, with parts catalogued- and found that I could pull a full Space Crusade force out of it.
For painting, I've decided to create tributes to forces that I've painted in the past- some for clients, others for myself. None of them will match those forces too closely, as I'll be creating a new take on them.
Here's the first squad I finished: Salamanders
I painted up my first unit as Salamanders as a tribute to the Salamanders forces I painted over the years (they'll be 'counts as' Imperial Fists for the most part). This version of the Salamanders doesn't quite match any of the other color schemes for Sallies that I've done, and it was nice to have a slightly new take on them.
PS- I've posted them to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.
Yet another new mini, this time it's The Visarch, a mysterious Elfin knight.
I wasn't actually planning on starting him yet, but made a nice dark red mix for something else that I thought would look great on the inside of his cape:-
It's 1:1 Scarlett Red/Black > Black Wash > 1:1 Scarlett Red/Black > 1:1 Scarlett Red/Black with a brushtipful of Ochre Yellow.
Since this guy jumped the queue it could be a while before anything else happens to him.
This is the mini I painted a few months back.
My first try at painting tattoos too :D
I'm very happy how he turned out, I've used him as a boss in my dnd campaign and people loved him :D
Next to a Mantic Greatax Orc :D
Next to a heavily converted 03197: Thelgar Halfblood :D
