B4-P0 & AR-Two

The R2-D2 model came off a McDondald’s Fatty Meal toy. Can’t remember who made the humanoid robot, it has been kicking around for years, I think it may be a Rackham model.

I have a few uses for these models, mainly for my robotic Steam Wars army, but also for use in Rogue Stars.

These are another example of a super quick paint job with a healthy splattering of Army Painter Ink over the top.

40k 8th Edition

I have not played Warhammer 40k for quite a few years, which is a shame as I have a Blood Angels army that I really like. Games Workshop are releasing a new version this year, which will be available as a free download from the sound of it. I may just give it a go. Will it be 40k Age of Warhammer? They claim not in an FAQ released, but we will see.

I am not a fan of the current version, so I have some hope that the new version addresses some of my pet hates, especially around close combat.
As anyone who come here often will know, the Loft Full Of Lead contains many marvels, several of which are other 40k forces from the 1990’s that have not been out in a long time. Tiny Orks could be making a comeback.

Golum

The Golum were a range that never quite made it out in time before FASA and the Vor The Maelstrom game ceased to be. Luckily I was able to get a few of these Golum prototype models, a few of which have been painted up for use in various sci-fi games.

In my latest Rogue Stars crew, I decided to do a non-human line up so I could try out various skills and abilities. This Golum was basically a heavily armoured trooper with some built in weapons.

Objectives And Stuff

I wanted more objectives for my Steam Wars games but these things will also work for Rogue Stars and any other sci-fi game as well. The first lot were actually sold as custom sci-fi bases, but I thought they were so good that they would work as markers in their own right.

The last two are a bit older. The flying drilly thingy was from FASA’s Vor game quiet a few years ago and will get used as a drone of some sort.
