Having BKC & CWC, it seemed only natural to try their partner set for Future (Sci-Fi) combat, Future War Commander.
My first set were a bunch of (as yet unidentified) models bought cheap from some dodgy bloke down the Club... (Apologies Dave). Which included a few walkers, a bunch of infantry, and some Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC). They are languishing in the study, as I got distracted, (ooh shiney!) by the Brigade Models South African Confederation models. Very Nice. So far they have been pretty successful.
I also lashed out some considerable funds, and bought myself a stupidly large amount of very beautiful, but pricey Dark Realm Miniatures Pax Arcadians. Beautiful minis, but still in the painting queue.
As a backup, if I ever feel like playing the bad guys, I also acquired a very large number of the GW slimey bug things.. which make excellent 6mm Aliens.
I will definitely be playing some more FWC soon.. and I am still looking for those elusive 6mm Model 577 APC and figures for my Colonial Marines. In the meantime, I did a bit of kitbashing, and came up with an approximation of a Colonial Marines Dropship.
Why is this here..
A Lead Odyssey is about my hobby, collecting, painting and playing with toy soldiers. It will cover the various rulesets I use, the figures I am painting (very slowly), and some games. Thanks to Harry Pearson for the Achtung Schweinehund reference. The uniform jacket in the picture was adapted from a safari suit, the weapon is a wooden sub-machine gun made by me and my dad. Cool eh?
I play a range of scales, rules and periods.. scales are anything from 6mm, through 15mm to 28mm for little men, but I also use 1/1200 for Napoleonic Naval, and 1/3000 for Pre-Dreadnought period Naval.
My tastes are eclectic, but I have avoided most 'Fantasy' Games for a few years, as I couldn't get into the usual suspects for Fantasy Battles, and didn't have a decent group to play role-playing style games.
