Powering on with the Bobbybox, we come to the DeadZone Marauders. I got 5 Orx Commandos and 2 Goblin snipers.
In the Warpath universe shared by the DeadZone game, the Marauders are green-skinned, brutish-looking aliens that are highly disciplined militaristic mercenaries that function both as shock troops for corporations and also follow their own agenda. A rather different take on Space Orcs and Space Goblins than the rust-bucket Space Orks of Warhammer 40k.
So, disciplined military in thought, and in a half-baked bid to move the Marauders away from the Waargh! Orks, I did a scheme inspired by the British colonial army of the late 1800s Zulu wars, with white leather straps, gold piping and all.
Took ages to paint. Gah! But it does give them an interesting look as a group.
…and the camera would not cooperate fully, leaving these the only pictures even close to viewable. This time my photography let me down.
Not very sharp pictures at all, I am afraid. Sorry about that.
The Tally so far:
Finished from the Bobby Box: 86 / 126 (+10 / 13 casualties, small animals etc)
Just 40 left to do!
Finished from the stash: 59
Finished minis in total this year: 138 / 365 (target one for each day on average)
