Top floor of the hab pod for the HADES Strike Cruiser Persephone

The Top floor of the hab pod for the HADES Strike Cruiser Persephone.

All furniture from Mad Mecha Guy.

I need to get armory racks, med bays and etc... probably from National Cheese Emporium… That will all be for the first floor.

The bay is big enough for my smaller vehicles and the Aurora. The other pod with four bay doors I think is even big enough for my HADES and Apocalypse, although I haven't have a chance to test yet.

Super excited about this, and I think I could even do a small game just in here. It also has a helipad on the roof section, this pod could be dropped off somewhere as a temp HQ for operations.

And here's a WIP of the full spaceship:

Any suggestions for detailing?

HADES Banshee - Painted

Finished up my HADES Banshee VTOL.

First I primed it black then I airbrushed dark grey and highlighted with light grey.

I then used Anarchy Models Hex Camo masking in select areas.

Then I airbrushed black and then Vallejo Air Color Gunmetal to highlight.

Then I inked with an AK interactive enamel black wash and cleaned it up with a makeup sponge and white spirits.

I then painted various engine parts with Army Painter Uniform Grey, washed and highlighted.

I went back and placed a small white dots where hexes met to highlight the pattern. I also picked out lights and optics with green or red and then green or red ink.

I painted gloss where the decals would go, mico-sol, applied decals, micro-sol again and then another gloss coat.

I then used a Tamyia Flat varnish and picked out the optics and lights with gloss varnish.

You can still preorder it at

What do you folks think?

The HADES Banshee VTOL is an advanced stealth assault craft designed to deliver HADES Ghost teams directly into the mission are and exfil them under heavy enemy fire. The two Higgs-Newby 46-megawatt phase engines produce over 400Kn of thrust and allow for atmospheric and low-orbit flight. The virtual cockpit system provides maximum protection and sensor acclimation to either a single on-board pilot, slaved in via cortical implants, or a remote pilot.

On the nose is mounted a twin-linked 40mm smart-munition cannon capable of engaging armored and unarmored targets at up to 20 km. The Banshee can also carry multi-role missiles systems via its internal bays located on either side of the armored front.

Stealth systems include low-to-no emission systems, low-profile ECM/ECCM systems, RADAR/LADAR absorbent coatings and an adaptable optical coating to disrupt visual detection.

The HADES Banshee is a 15mm Scale Multi-Part Resin Model

A HADES Squad, supported by a Nemesis LSV, conduct a patrol of an abandoned colony...

Working on a new board with GameCraft Miniatures buildings that we jointly designed. They are really easy to put together and they look nice!

Here is a HADES squad with a Nemesis LSV. I need to actually get around to stat'ing theses guys up for SpecOps and running some more solo games. I do have more mercs to paint up too.

HADES Operative in Multicam

Hi everyone!

Here is my take on a multi-cam uniform:

I started with the base layer of baneblade brown,

Then I did oak brown large splotches
Then I did large splotches of Brown Violet
Then I did small squiggly lines (very fine, go back over with brown violet if too thick) with black
Then I did little non-uniform dots of Dark Sand.
Then I did a very watered down (like 5:1) coat of the Brown Violet. This really brought it together.
Then I did a watered down (3:1) wash of Strong tone.

And feedback or critiques are welcome!

What do you folks think?  Do you guys prefer the grey exo-skeleton, or the tan one?

SpecOps first free supplement: Using Dropships/VTOLs.

I'm starting on the writing of the first free supplement for SpecOps - Using Dropships/VTOLs.

My biggest concern is that if one side has a VTOL/Dropship then the other side needs a way to take it down.
Now, soldiers (once they start to advance) can buy missile launchers, but I'm not sure that's going to be enough. I'm thinking that a more abstract system would work better. Something where the VTOLs can drop off the troops (or exfil them) but can only loiter for a turn or two before they risk being blow up (needing a new mission, and possibly handing the enemy a victory). This would introduce an element of how long do I let my VTOLs loiter before telling them to leave, a risk vs. reward which is always fun.

I'm also thinking if one side bought a VTOL, the other side would get the same number of points to spend on MANPADS, Off-table SAMs, their own VTOLs, interceptors, etc. Basically a separate point pool for both sides. The bigger the VTOL, the bigger the enemy response.

I would have different VTOLs to start based off what I sell: Aurora, Sparrowhawk, Raven, Condor.
What do you folks think? Any suggestions/ideas?
