|first photo, no flash, the guy on the far right is either there to de-activate a device or for removing the contaminant|
the main roll of these troops will be to clear contaminated areas of enemies, dangerous material or other things that are found in such places. They could also be used for an elite rebel unit that is trying to emulate the Black Angels, though their is little chance they will be even near a match for one of the worlds best special forces units!
|flash photo, less detail but the colours are closer to normal now.|
Now for the Mercenaries! the Brit, in the beret, has managed to get hold of a complete though dated issue of arms and camouflage, probably from an abandoned depot, the American on the other hand has got a helmet and some pants that are distinctly modern while he also has some older chocolate chip gear. Though the two are not perhaps the most impressive or most organised soldiers on the battle field they are ready to fight, either for a cause or for some cash.
|a bit of experimenting with the camouflage patterns here, both are wearing gloves, I normally forget to add gloves but it is more realistic|
|the low light, and the lack of flash means the camera takes longer to make photographs, which leads to blurry images as I do not seem to have the steadiest hands around|
And now for the preview!
its the Lynx, which was either made in Poland or the USSR. the construction is complete, not without problems though (the 3 windows seen in the photo fell into the cabin once it was stuck together and only with shaking and luck did they fall back into place where I glued them again).
as you can see, painting still needs to be done, I painted the body grey before construction to make it easier at the end but some things will need to be done. The front wheel is way too short and the side ones are not equal lengths (partially my fault, partially because the parts don't fit together well) so it does not sit evenly, but I am happy so far. I am a little suspicious that it is not 1/72 but having not seen a 1/72 scale lynx or the real thing, my comparisons with an NH-90 kit might not be the best (the NH-90 naval kit by Revel to be precise... still to be built)
|this will be used by the Oronegrean marine corps|
It's the Holidays which means I have 2 weeks off :-) so lots of time to work on some models.
Now onto the formalities:
Hello to BiloRay from blodger corner and Kir's Miniatures welcome to this site!
Welcome to tsold2100 from somewhere? sorry once more I am having problems locating where people are from.
Welcome both of you to this site! Now in other news I have completed a map of Oronegro, the WHOLE THING! now I cannot expand any more, which is a good thing. That will be coming online shortly, I have also made most of the map for the colony, which will soon be online also, and then story work for that region can be done.
Well we're a few days into this holiday but its good that I can get some R&R. Hope your all well and that I haven't missed out to much of what you've posted on your blogs while I've been away.
