Kickstarter Alert!!! 4A Miniatures produces Female Chaos Dwarfs...

Hi all,

Just a quick post today to alert you to an excellent Kickstarter campaign my my good friend Andrew Coleman of Four A Miniatures. 

Link to Campaign:

Andrew has teamed up with John Pickford to create a number of female chaos dwarf sculpts...something sorely lacking from current figure ranges.  John really outdid himself with these sculpts and I'm sure the figures will be fantastic.

The kickstarter has also allowed Andrew to include some of the other excellent figures from his ranges including female barbarians and those wonderful Chaos Dwarf Beastmen (also sculpted by John P.)

This campaign has a very reasonable price point and offers some truly exceptional and unique figures that will look great on your table top.  Please join me in supporting this can't deal with a nicer guy than Andrew and keeping small manufactures of excellent figures like this is a laudable goal in itself...particularly when they are producing figures of this quality.

Here is the Link again...go pledge!! :

Cheers for now,

Chaos Renegade #13....this one goes to 11!!!

Hi all,

After my last...less that exciting... Renegade I really felt the need to pick one of my absolute favorite Renegades and turn the color levels WAY UP.  So I did...

Renegade 13 is one of the most Renegade-y of all the Renegades...truly alien and perhaps a little bit insectoid in nature this figure really displays how subtly twisted Renegades can be.  The other reason for this color choice was that my pal Iannick from Quebec challenged me to take on a pink renegade and after consulting with my daughter...she agreed that this would be the figure that pink would be most suitable for.

So here is a pic of the second Squad to date...individual pics are below.

Chaos Renegade #12

Hi all,

Here is the latest Renegade for Squad 2.  I started off full of enthusiasm for this figure...but it quickly waned.  Compared to the other Renegades I found it to be less than inspiring.  So...I'm glad it is done so I can move onto one that I like more.  The one really peculiar feature of this Renegade is that he is wearing a Fur vest...Perhaps a Wookie Renegade?  I did prefer painting the more modern backpack...much easier than the crappy plastic RT ones. he is.

Chaos Renegades....Squad 1 Action shots

Hi all,

I've finally found the time to finish post-processing some of the Action shots that I took of my first squad of Chaos Renegades.  I really enjoy doing these little photo shoots...they really capture the feel of a game in action.

Once again I have fallen back on my Battle Systems Sci-Fi Terrain and pitted the Renegades against a couple of squads of rampaging Orks.

Here is an overview of the set up...

Chaos Renegade knew I couldn't stop...

Hi all,

I'm back with another Renegade for you...I guess this is the first one for the second squad.  I had thought to take a break after completing the last squad...but when inspiration struck I just had to paint another!

So here is the first heavy weapon trooper for Renegade Squad #2...this time armed with a Heavy Bolter...and looking totally Bad ass doing so.

When I showed a WIP photo of this guy with Captain Crooks he reminded me that the color scheme closely resembled the national colors of Australia...So...Though it was inadvertent I would like to dedicate this one to my many good Oldhammer friends from down under...this includes the aforementioned Captain Crooks, G2, Delaney King, Glenn, and Fanai to name just a few.  For a country on the opposite of the globe from me, Australia sure has produced a lot of great Oldhammer friends.  :)

Cheers for now...Number 12 is already underway!

Chaos Renegade #10...the Squad is complete!!

Hi all,

I finally found some time to get paint on another Renegade...#10 this time and the last for my first squad.  Once again an often overlooked sculpt that didn't strike me as particularly impressive in the catalog shots...but turned out to amazingly fun to paint.

Here is the new guy with his completed squad!  Individual shots below.
