With only 2 weeks to go until the Spring Challenge, I’ve begun work on my latest wave of reinforcements. Thankfully in terms of what I need for the day I’m attending, I’m actually done (bar the varnishing and inevitable frosting…), but I want to keep going with these as I’d like them totally finished by the time Salute rolls around, where I plan to pick up some more terrain, a Dreadball team, and perhaps some Tohaa!
Okay, first up, my ‘star player’, the Sophotect:
I really enjoyed painting this model – I decided to go with a white coat, to help her stand out (as if the Mother Forge on her base wasn’t enough!). With my Aleph having a fairly dark colour scheme, I wanted to do something which would give a bit of brightness to the group.
Next up, a Yudbot, who will most likely help out the Sophotect in combat. I’ve followed the colour scheme of my Dakini Tactbots – all of my Aleph Remotes have a dark purple colour scheme, while the Lhosts (Devas and the like) are mostly black or very dark grey:
As part of the support pack, you also get 3 Netrods, and so I’ve painted one of them up, in preparation for the Posthumans which I also recently acquired:
Speaking of Posthumans, I’ve begun work on one of them. I plan to use them more in non-ITS games, as I think in a system where you’ve only got 3 turns to complete your objective (ie: ITS missions), the loss of an order for taking a pair of Posthumans is a bit too much of a burden, so they’ll be used in non-competitive games only. They’re superb fun though!
Finally, here’s a little group shot to round out this post. Next time, I’ll be finishing the Posthuman Mk1 Proxy, as well as working on the rest of the box!
