Part 2 of 2 - The Loot!
Here’s the shinies I picked up from Little Wars today. There was so much on offer from traders and the bring and buy table(every time I walked past the amount there had grown). Starting with the impulse buys, theres a D&D Grick I just couldnt leave there, I think its his tentacles. Photo 2 was some more accidental finds, I was looking for some Sci-Fi minis at the Eureka stand and found the 20mm cats and the awesome steampunk dog, who couldnt say no to that! 3rd is a pack of 15mm dogs I’ll use for my with my zombies and the homebrew rules mentioned in the today’s previous post, I’ll paint a few as survivor companions and the rest as undead pooches.
The other 5 figures will form my upcoming Smash Effect team for the league I’m starting for our club. What is Smash Effect you ask?
“Smash Effect is a skirmish level tabletop wargame that allows you to recreate the twenty second century galactic television sensation of the same name, pitching teams of warriors in a life or death gladiatorial battle in the name of the Corporations and for the bloodlust of the crowd.
Hire your team, equip them with the best gear your Corporation can muster and send them to glory!
The Games are the bloody televised spectator sport that the galaxy has turned to in lieu of war. Part conflict resolution, part entertainment, part advertising, they have fused the galactic spanning Unified Federation of Alliances (UFA) both politically and economically.
The Games take many forms - Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Capture the Flag and many more - but no matter the variant, it’s all about big explosions, skimpy outfits and cigar chomping badasses that keep the viewers baying for more.”
Its basically a fast and furious, beer and pretzel shoot em up, where any sci-fi type miniature can be adapted and used. The rules are available for free download here if you’re interested, they’re only 18 pages long including fluff and scenarios.
Thats enough plugging, back to the minis! Number 4 is an Incursion Panzeraffe, who doesnt love a cyborg, heavy machinegun toting gorilla wearing a baseball cap?! 5th is a couple of Soviet snipers from the Secrets of the Third Reich range. 6 is ‘Ash’, also form the SotTR range, she will be a counts as flamethrower, what with her pyrokenisis and such. Number 7 is Gretal von X, from Incursion, I really dig her pigtails and hat combo. Lastly is Kitsune, from the Bushido range. I’ve seen a lot of awesome minis for Bushido, and she is no exception. I didn’t know my team needed a shapeshifting anime fox girl with katanas, but I do now!
Well there you go, a glimpse into whats coming soon from Sly Fox Studio, and now you know what an impulse buyer I am too! Until next time trendsetters……..
