Imperial Army fire support.

A few recent ebay purchases.
I haven't had a chance to use these in any recent games but if I recall correctly (back 20+ years ago) the Tarantula worked quite well in its role of sniping out vehicles and such. The Rapier on the other hand looks pretty cool but if I recall proved disappointing in practice, with the crew easily getting killed.  The Thudd Gun I have little recollection of and I need to sort through my White Dwarfs and find the rules for it.


I think something like the Ontos is what I had in mind when deploying a Rapier

Pirates WIP:4

Another pirate finished.

I was going for an aged bronze look.  I think it looks pretty good, looks like something out of Fallout.  The head doesn't seem too large to me at all now that he's all painted up.

Pirates WIP: 2

Got some work done on the pirates.

The gentlemen on the left I used an Empire Militia head, gives a nice classic piratey look. I'll Call him Patchy.

The guy in the middle is a Bob Olley sculpt and has some unusual proportions. The head I used is probably a bit too large and initially looked terrible, but with the addition of a shoulder pad it helped tie in the scale.  He has tiny little feet though... He looks like such the hard bitten warrior of numberless campaigns... then you see his dainty little feet!  I'll call him Därthmäl Twinkletoes

The last guy is one of the infamous space Celts you've heard so mush about. Used heads and hand from the Warlords games Celts with some green stuff to tie it all in. He's called Brenus the Brainless or maybe just Biff.

Pirates for Chico's challenge

A few guys I pulled from the pirate pile. Lets see if I can get these guys converted and painted by the end of the week in time for Chico's challenge:
