Ogres marsch!

Thanks to the gentlemanly acts of Mr. Tim Porter, I've received my Plasmablast 1/300 Marhaf Legion miniatures months before I could've normally expected them!

Yesterday evening, I finally got a chance to paint some of them up and here they are, Masquerading as Ogres, or what Mathieu Moyen of Six Commando fame calls "Rumblers" - ridiculously large cybertanks, in any case) for my ever-growing Grey Army.

Here we see three Ogres - a big one and two littler ones (let's call them a Mark V and two Mark IIIBs) advancing past a mining village in the bleak outback of Smade´s World. They are escorted by a company of Oddzial Osmy Caesarion MBTs, reinforced by a platoon of Matabele-mounted panzergrenadiers.

Yes, those are Doms Decals 1/600 Beglian roundels on those figs. I use them exclusively because I like the color scheme. They mean nothing as of yet because, as readers of this blog know, I have still not decided on a background for the Grey Army. All I know at this point is that they are fighting The New Vistula Legion Neo-Pole Mercenaries and their employers, the Revolutionary Army of Salvation, for control over Smade's World's unobtanium fields and hand wavium processing facilities.

  1. Superb. Your painting makes the two manufacturer's tanks blend together very well.

  3. The bigger tank there is a slick double for a Victor-class Rumbler for SURE. If you're ever in the States, you have a standing invite for a game at the club in New York!

    Why I continue to get so much flak trying to introduce sci fi there, in general, and 3mm scale in particular, continues to mystify me.

  5. After much experimentation, I finally decided that I like good 'ol 1.5 mm thick cray framing cardboard for the bases. When they are this small, the don't warp. Plus, they take paint better than plastic, are easy to cut and are very cheap.

    I use FWC and my own home-made Luftpanzer rules.
