SWAT Squad

These Aberrant Games miniatures are really nice SWAT style models. I wantd a very plain colour scheme so went for black with grey pouches and knee pads.

There is a Shotgun and a Flamer in there with three Assault Rifles and an Engineer Specialist.

Black is a hard colour to paint!

Industrial Kill Team

I am getting to the point where my MDF industrial terrain is just about what I had in mind when I started, multiple towers, linked by walkways.

This game had three towers for the Elucidian Starstriders and the Deathwatch to do battle over, five objectives to hold for as long as possible.

The Deathwatch are an elite unit of veterans, each armed with specialist weapons and skills.

The Deathwatch Marine below has a Voidsman in his laser sights…

Joken’s entire Space Marine collection was on the table, that right, five Deathwatch models, very nicely painted.

Space Marine armour is hard to crack, sometimes even hard to hit when they are over half range and obscured.

The Starstider medic must be in the right place at the right time to be able to take a flesh wound off a friendly model, it worked once…

Finally worked out how to do melee combat correctly, Ms Vhane is a tough cookie.

Not so tough is Knosso Prond the Assassin, she took plenty of flesh wounds before getting into combat.

Only one Starstrider was out of action by the end of the four turns, models do tend to hang around in a game of Kill Team.

Devourer Eclipsante

devourer-eclipsante1I have two female Devourers, the Eclipsante. These also rarely get used in Confrontation as I prefer more heavily armoured warriors.
The models are nice, quite graceful for something so relatively large.
All the games of Confrontation we played were at 400 points, which meant about six or seven Devourers. I have a few more than that so plenty have been left on the bench.

Devourer Voracious Warrior

I think I have about six Voracious Warriors in total, maybe more, these are the cheap basic soldiers for the Devourers. The Marauders have taken over as the cheaper option basic warriors, but for an increased unit size in Dragon Rampant, I think they will all mix in together okay.
The Voracious Warriors were some of the first Devourers I painted and so the paint job was not very good.
