Basic fluff: (partly inspired by tremors)
Ex Sniper Burt Gummer leaving quietly in his fortied basement in the village of perfection meets a strange fellow with a hook and his muscley friend passing through town, Burt Gummer is already parnoid but let the smooth taking strangers in partly because he felt sorry for the amputee, obviously too poor to avoid bionics.
Before long Burt was hooked and call on two of his ex-army buddies Val a fellow sniper and Earl a drill sgt to help prepare his little village for the upcoming war..."See I told you all, you called me crazy all this time, you could me mad for having 5 years worth of MREs... I was right"
His two buddies Earl and Val arrive and start training up some of the locals, after a good drinking session with the amputee who is a very charming fella, very passionate, Earl wakes up 4 foot taller. This attracts the attention of the local news crew... "what that they aren't new crews they are spies..... out to capture Earl."
With that Burt takes to the roof which his trusty rifle and aquires a nice set of filming equipment and a dire need to dig a big hole.

Earl after his growth spurt... they didn't have any filming equipment before....

Some of the millita
The whole gang
The interview, Earl demonstrating close combat techniques.
For the millita I wanted a rag tag look of locals, and 1 pre mutated sgt. I have most of the necromuda gangs but most I brought prepainted as I could field / loan them out. To field the rest of the millita I raided my unpainted models, and chose a selection some of which look slightly trained some not at all.... The only painted model is the enforce whose pose I love. If the IR goes well I may strip some of the other gangers or build some basic models using IG parts to represent their growing skill.
I know they can't start with those weapons as such.. but meh!
I made the film crew and the sniper a while back.
The only really new model was Earl. I'm not sure wat to do about his upper chest area. I imagined he just grew and the webby parely fits but he is just wearign a plain tshirt underneath. I was going to hand a pair of binocoluar or soemthig to cover up the greenstuff patch. Film Crew:
I think are all IG parts plus skaven arms as I had limited parts when I built him.Val
, is a skaven body which I think works great.Early
. IG cadian legs, older ork torso, some bad greenstuffing and a few extra pouch to turn the straps into a webbing and he kind of looks the part. I wan't him big but not too big. He kind of just looks like he grew broader and taller around the torso and arms but his legs and head haven't caught up.Preacher
Didn't want to go with the convention model and when I couldn' find a hand to fit.... what could be better than a preacher with a hook..
Other models can be seen here, including some zany conversions, I have a very limited bitz box being a new player to this world and only play skirmish games so struggle for conversions sometimes. I am also new to advance converting and rubbish at painting but I am getting there, and enjoy it which is the main thing.
