Battle report Video Up! - New and UPDATED

I've completed the first of (hopefully) many video battle reports!

Any comments or suggestions would be welcome!

See Below for Video:

We have another battle coming up Friday, and this time it will be a close-in battle in a research lab...


I really appreciate all the advice people have sent my way, and I reworked and I've uploaded an updated video... I've included better quality images, pictures of minis, and a description of events.  Hopefully  this will give a better report *grin*

New video tests for Battle Report

Flick and I played our game of Gruntz on friday and had a great time!  It really came down to the last turn and the last move to see who would win!

We played about 100 points each on a 2x4 board and it was perfect.  We could have upped the points too, but we felt that this gave us a quick, exciting game.

I'm still working on putting it all together, but i've done two quick video tests, and wanted to share them.

First, a downed Eagle with smoke showing...

A mech shoots a plasma projectile at the eagle, causing damage as the falcon flies by.

I know it's a little rough around the edges, but these would be quick cuts anyways, and I'm hoping to do a lot of them, so I won't be spending too much time on each one.  Other than that, what do you guys think?

Edit:  After looking at them for a bit, they are a bit chessy, but if you guys are OK with that, so am I :)

Armies Army Kickstarter Goal Passed!

Just a quick congratulations to Keith over at Armies Army for having a successful kickstarter!

Metal 15mm SciFi Future War Neo British Miniatures

Right now he's at £1,781 of a £1,750 goal, with 14 days left to go!

These are some great looking miniatures, and can't wait to see the squads produced   He also has some great stretch goals.  I recommend heading over and supporting today!

Col. Jovan Odea - GZG NI Conversion

I was thinking how I wanted a Commander that stood out a little.  I've always liked the GZG conversion heads and I had found an extra NI command trooper, so I took a look at them and found a combination I liked.

It went together very easy.  The helmet came right off, and then I just drilled down a little with the Pin Vise to create a small indent for the head.

I know the head is a little over-sized, but  I think it looks good on the table.  And it makes my commander stand out!

GZG NI - Patrol

I'm not sure my last photos came out how I liked, so here are some patrol shots:

GZG NI Command Squad - Thanks for all the suggestions!

Finished up my NI command squad for Gruntz.

I have the Colonel with the red stripe on the helmet (the stripes on the helmets are for the squad leaders, or officers).

Then the BATINT/Drone operator and the COMMS operator. Both have the red command squad marking on their shoulder pads.

Each squad will have a different color stripes.

I might end up putting decals on these guys, I ordered some Heavy Gear decals that I think will work.

Comments and critiques are always welcome!

I re-discovered my GZG NI, and I guess I never really looked at them before, but they're awesome!

Here is my test paint, what do you guys think?

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated!

Quick Reaction Force - GZG NAC Trikes, Mules, and Half-Trikes

Had to do a group shot:

They're on the move!

GZG NAC Half-Trike

Painted up the New GZG NAC Half-Trike.

I armed it with a heavier weapon than my Mini-Mule.

I really like it, and I think the two go well together.
