Been looking for some standard US infantry models to use with Dust. The plan is to have a unit of twelve standard infantry models, but so far, all of the models I already have look a little short next to a Dust infantry model.
From right to left, the above models are:
3. Rules Of Engagement
5. Bolt Action
6. Secrets Of The Third Reich
I am now thinking twice about rebasing all of my Dust models on 25mm round bases as they do stand a bit taller than everything else.
All of the Meridian infantry models are finished, four squads with infantry support weapons and officers.
Each squad consists of six men, additional support weapons can be added as required.
There are actually too many to crew the Aeronef, so the spares will be going with the WWI tanks that will be steampunked up a bit. I have some suitable weapons to magnetise onto the main turret.
The next close up of my steampunk crew is of another Lead Adventures engineer model, this one armed with a hand cranked rotary gun. I really like the flat cap.
This Lead Adventures Engineer is a nice steampunk figure, armed with a massive spanner and equipped with a steam powered mechanical arm.
The boiler on his back has some detailed gauges and dials, not that he can read them very easily…
This Kickstarter delivered just before Christmas and I have nearly managed to complete all of the models. These are great sculpts by Andrew May and he has a whole set of steampunk rules in development for them.
For the time being, I will be using them as crew for my No Quarter Skyship and maybe as an Empire Of The Dead faction, somewhere in between the bobbies and a Gentlemens Club.
I hope that there will be some more models in the future, particularly hopeful that there will be some artillery pieces of some description.
Turns out this is a Heresy model after all. Armed with two heavy pistols, this guy kinda fits into my steampunk crew as well as a post apoc setting.
Some close ups of the foot soldier models I will be using in my Empire Of The Dead faction. The first is a model from the Dystopian Legions range.
The second is a really old Citedal dwarf model, from what year, I would not like to say, but it is likely to be 1980 something.
