A slow week unfortunately, but more productive than most at least! I thought I’d slap a bit of paint onto the simplest piece of scenery I cobbled together:
Quite happy with how it turned out, the crates and pallet are all from Ground Zero Games (casually added to my order during a promotion a year or two ago, wonderful chap) and are great little items for scatter terrain. I tried to do some brighter colours and there is some chipping which sadly hasn’t shown up too well in the photo.
The other thing I managed to get done is a Leader type character for a Post-Apocalyptic/Sci-fi courier company unofficially registered as ‘Cutthroat Couriers’.
I’m using a selection of the Ion Age Shia Khan Legionaries as the basis of the gang, with some mutants and aliens for variety and flavour.
I quite like the idea of a semi professional band of mercenaries who have evolved into a courier company with military grade weapons and equipment who’ll transport anything from letters and parcels to rare tech, drugs and occult (even xenotech) items. Their motto is “No less trustworthy than our competitors”, they are however much better equipped with an assortment of vehicles, xenobeasts and mutants making up their heavily defended caravans.
The Route Manager is the commander of one of these caravans, a formidable ego who is empowered by the almost mythical Postmaster General to either honour contracts or betray, murder and even rob (in some cases all three) those who employ their services. This utter lack of any moral fibre permeates the organisation and it is only due to the crushing bureaucracy which is required for every action (even the murder of a superior) that the company exists at all, let alone appears to be growing in influence.
So, if you need something precious delivered in good time and with excellent service ……. well ……. your options are limited.
Thanks for looking.
