Cheeky Maid

Well what can I say?

It is July and the warm weather is getting to me…

Although with all the buildings and massive ships I am am making, someone will have to keep them nice and clean.

I am tempted to turn her into a really powerful magic user.

Sedition Wars Figures

I wanted to get these models completed for when we give Black Ops another go. Or maybe even Fist Full Of Kung Foo. A few of these will come in handy.

First up is a sniper model, definitely not in a firing pose.

The first of two specialists is armed with a pistol and a kit bag. I was going to put a Red Cross on it to make him a medic, but thought he would be better off as a generic specialist to fulfill any role.
Sedition5
The next chap is another specialist with some sort of light flamer.

And here we have a burly dude with a very big gun.
Sedition1
This is not Riddick, but Roderick, a close combat expert wielding two claws ripped from a creature.
Sedition6
Finally a female heroine equipped with a blaster and a sword for the up close and personal stuff.

Sedition Wars Figures

Although I have had Sedition Wars for ages, these are the first figures I have painted and they really are very easy to paint. I wanted a very metallic finish to these high tech soldiers, so it was just a bit of Bolt Gun Metal, Silver and Metallic Blue for the visors.

There are two games that these can get used in, firstly A Fist Full Of Kung Foo, although only the models with rifles will fall into the “Extras” category.

Secondly, they may be suitable for Black Ops, the latest Osprey book that I bought.

Fist Full Of Kung Foo

A few weeks ago, I forwarded an eBay auction that I had spotted which I really like the look of to Mr Steinberg, it was a massive terrain set of a winding river through some cliffs and mountains.

He was rather taken with it as well and bought it for £15. Bargain.

So now in the Steinberg shed is an impressive bit of scenery. If is very well constructed  with lots of fine detail. There are plenty of bridges across the ravines that are made from string and match sticks.

We had another game of Fist Full Of Kung Foo with the mission being to recover some sensitive equipment from a downed aircraft.

To add some extra complexity, we had randomly generated D6 zombie/skeletons to appear each turn there was any gunfire, which was pretty much every turn after the first.

This is one of those games which is pretty quick to play and allows all sorts of models to be used.

A Fist Full Of Kung Foo gang consists of a protagonist, which is the hero, a bruiser, which is the hero’s right hand man and a bunch of expendble extras. The protagonist suceeds on most things on a D6 roll of 2+ (Q2) with everyone else needing a 4+ (Q4). We came up with a house rule to improve the ability of the bruiser a little by making him a Quality 3 model so can succeed on a 3+ at most things.

Fist Full Of Kung Foo Gang

Fist Full Of Kung Foo is a skirmish game that requires a nice small number of models. It was easy enough to have a quick rummage through The Loft Full Of Lead and dig up some appropriate chaps to fight mu corner.

A Fist Full Of Kung Foo gang has a Protagonist, a gang leader who is the star of the show. All of the other other models are Extras and are very much expendable. For my gangs Protagonist, I picked a Hero Cop and selected this fine upstanding character from Aberrant Games.

These two are from Hasslefree, a zombie hunter with a shotgun and a cricket bat and a Lara lookalike.
ffokf2
If I remember right, the middle figure is from Hasslefree and the other two chaps are from Heresy.
ffokf3
These next three are all from the old Target Games Warzone range, I think all three are Agents. These never got used in my Warzone forces, I just liked the models.
ffokf4
I really can’t remember who made these two lovely ladies.

As a gang for Fist Full Of Kung Foo they work well, a nice mix of individual models, but as the rules say, don’t get too attached to the Extras.
