|"...And move on should the need arise."|
This 28mm metal model of a Gang Fighter is manufactured by "Warlord Games" and is one of five miniatures which come as part the Boromites' Gang Fighter boxed set. Heavily detailed, almost to the point of frustration, with all manner of pouches, electronic equipment and reflex armour, the mag gun-carrying soldier will form part of my Scouting Force's two main Tactical Infantry Units, and has been additionally armed with plasma grenades ("at 2pts per model").
Originally undercoated with "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey, the figure was washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil, before having a layer of Chaos Black applied over all of its weaponry. The mining model's armour was then slowly 'picked out' with "Vallejo" Heavy Ochre, and subsequently washed with "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade in order to dirty it up somewhat.

As I didn't like the predominantly black pouches and weapons illustrated within the "Beyond The Gates Of Antares" rule-book, I instead painted the miniature's pocket-bags with a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Brown and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade, whilst shading its "Citadel" Ironbreaker mag gun with Nuln Oil. As a last touch I highlighted the firearm's power source using some "Vallejo" Heavy Khaki and "Citadel" Biel-Tan Green, and the occasional piece of wiring with "Vallejo" Heavy Blue and "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade.
Despite so much time now being spent 'picking out' all the fiddly detail on my Boromites, I have still managed to give my "Nemesis The Warlock" mini-project a little more attention by working on the last of the "North Star Military Figures" figures I plan to use as one of Tomás de Torquemada's infamous Terminators. This particular model, much like his two predecessors, has been assembled using the disappointing mix of a plastic "Frostgrave" Cultist torso and the Nottingham-based company's Cultist Sci-Fi Accessory Pack.

Admittedly, I think the resin heavy machine-gun, complete with lengthy ammunition belt, looks awesome, should certainly help Terra's "quasi-religious order" eliminate plenty of extra-terrestrials. But the poor, rough-hewn sculpting of the 'fascist' warrior's hands has once again caused me a few issues with my paintbrush. Fortunately however, I have persevered, and the model now simply needs the application of a few washes, some dry-brushing and highlights.
Lastly, eager to play my first game of this year's main "Salute" purchase, "Doctor Who: Exterminate!" by "Warlord Games", I have primed, layered, washed and dry-brushed the other three Time War Daleks I require for the introductory scenario "A Meeting Of Metal". These multi-part plastic miniatures really have proved to be a 'bit of a swine' to assemble, on account of their supposed "easy-fit" snap-together bodies, and resultantly, at least one of my Kaled force's other models will now be used as a 'destroyed Dalek' objective marker; having lost a battle with a pair of pliers...
