Nomad Intruder with Combi Rifle

This is one of the earlier models i painted up for the Corregidor which i just never got around to posting on here. While i am pleased with it, i feel that it doesn't benefit from some of the lesions i learnt later on. Also, i think i spray varnished it twice thinking i hadn't in the first place! Whoops!

Sadly this guy hasn't yet found a spot in my lists, but i think an extra Intruder will always be useful!

Nomad Hellcat with Spitfire

This rather awesome model is from the Beyond Icestorm boxed set which came out last year. The model itself kind of determined its inclusion in my current Corregidor lists! To be honest though, you cant go far wrong with a Spitfire!

Everything about the painting of this model just went right for me! The moon must  have been in the correct cycle, the right words of power spoken, to produce a model i was this happy with! I learnt  a lot of lesions painting it, which i have begun to apply to my other models. 

I hope you enjoy him as much as i did!

Nomad Themed Infinity Tournament Tray

I got my first tournament box for Infinity around the time i started collecting my Corregidor, so it made sense to paint it up in a Nomad theme (sorry Aleph, you'll have to wait!) 

I bought this off a mate you had an extra one (for some reason!) but the box itself is from a company called Black Sheep (I think!) in the States. Its a cracking box, and fits perfectly into a Battlefoam Infinity bag as well!

The box was painted using an airbrush mainly, and follows the same recipe as the bases i've used for my Corregidor. 

I bought the Nomad and Corregidor stencil sets from Custom Meeple which helped give the box a bit of character!

The underside of the top tray of the box can be flipped over to reveal a model  tray.

There are three compartments to the box, the top tray (above), then a middle tray for your token's etc. The the last compartment at the bottom is for your larger items like templates.

Finally here's a few WIP pics i snapped. As with all MDF products there are a lit of join marks where the pieces fit together. I decided to fill these in to give the box a smoother finish. 

The most stressful part of the painting, the hazard stripes!! Fortunately they come out great!

Nomad Mobile Brigada

Welcome readers to 2018! I hope you all had a fantastic new year!

I thought i'd start the new year off with some of my favourite Nomad models, the Mobile Brigada! Even before i started collecting Nomads these models really stood out for me. So when i started planning my Corregidor force, i knew at least one of my list had to have a Mobile Brigada link team in it! 

Multi Rifle Brigada. This one is from the Nomad starter set.

Boarding Shotgun Brigada. This guy actually proxies as a Multi Rifle at Operation Firestorm II.

Mobile Brigada Hacker. This lovely lady was able to provide the link with some anti hacker protection by using Fairy Dust on the link.

Finally the Brigada with HMG!

The Brigada with Heavy Rocket Launcher is currently unpainted, but she will definitely feature in future lists to take that Brigada link up to the full 5! Ouch!

Nomad LunoKhod Sputnik

One of the things i really like about the Nomads is their remotes! Not only do they look cool, but they're a dam sight easier to put together than the Aleph ones!! The LunoKhod is certainly one of my favourites.

I also love the Crazy Koalas! Very cute, well, as cute as exploding robot bears can be! This LunoKhod will give me an element of board control with any luck, denying routes of enemy advance and protecting my flanks. This remote will also provide me an elament of anti-TAG support in the form of its Akrylat Kanone. 

I wish you all a happy new year, and an excellent 2018!

Nomad Bandit Hacker

The noble Bandit will provide me with a Killer Hacker for my Corregidor. It will also give me a camo marker to deploy witch will hopefully keep my opponents guessing!

I really like the model itself, especially the 'Jason' mask she has on and the matching machete!! I have another Bandit to paint up at some point as well, but i think the Bandit will see quite  a few appearances in my lists. I hope you like this one!

Christmas is nearly upon us, so i wish you all a Happy Christmas and the best for the new year!!

Nomad Daktari and Zondbot

In order to try and keep my troops alive for a bit longer i needed a Doctor. I chose the Daktari to fill this role and gave her a Zondbot. 

As i was painting this model up i was thinking "why the hell didn't i choose a Tomcat instead??" I'm not really sure why i went with the Daktari! Don't get me wrong, I like the model and her stats. You just get a bit more bang with your buck with a tomcat (light flame thrower, AD, super jump) which i imagine will make a Tomcat a more suitable Doctor choice. 

Never mind, i'll just have to get the Tomcat box ordered in!
