The Holy Roller

Something new for my Holy Order of Man posse.  This light support from Wild West Exodus combines some serious speed and firepower.

Since it can also drop mines in its path, it can also serve as an area denial platform, which is even more crucial to this posse.

Holy Orders tend to be massively outnumbered, so those additional mines can either equate to some extra bodies on the field, or channel those lighter enemy units into killing zones.

It also has a decent amount of hit points, making it more likely to survive those RJ rifle shots.  Not much you can do about big templates.

The lack of influence will hurt quite a bit.  We shall see how all this plays out once more of the faction is ready to go.  It won't take much painting to get a Holy Order posse on the field, since even the hired hands cost as much as minor characters.

This posse is all about buffing provided by the highest ranking figures.  I definitely hope that the portal character comes out soon!!!

Turning over a new leaf!!

While I was at Reapercon, I headed over to the Hangar 18 booth with the few minutes I had to spare.

Lo and behold, I discovered a host of new basing and terrain supplies!

I have been told that this is more of an 'original' source for such things, as the company that produces these in the true large packaging format.

There were a number of ivy packs to choose from, but I felt these three would do.  It's possible that I will paint at least 30% of the leaves once they are placed on a given base or miniature to better match the colors.

We shall see how well the paint adheres to them.

These two packages really expands my flower palette.  I even have dried foliage trees that are a fantastic tie in with the white and purple flowers!

This is more vines than leaves.  I will see how easy or difficult it is to manipulate the wires around which all the foliage is attached.

Potentially this might be used alongside the other Ivy style as well.

Again, there was a lot more to choose from, but this is what I could get back home with me.  I see many wonderful experiments in my hobby future!!

Of course you will see them all play out on these pages, so stay tuned!
