Lobster bites back!

The plan was for Inso to start painting his Grymn tonight. It didn't quite work out like that. After defrosting a couple of lobsters, he set to work removing the meat...only to slice open his thumb and finger in the process. He was a bit disappointed and has drunk lots of mead to make up for it. There will be no pix for the foreseeable future, I guess.

In order to make amends for his silly accident, he has started planning the next army and now has a concrete idea of what minis will be used.

The command squad will all have auto-guns apart from the Captain; he will have a pistol and power weapon. The command platoon will be the command squad and an attached heavy weapon squad with auto-cannons.

There will be two squads of five Grenadiers. each squad will include a veteran sgt and a grenade launcher.

There will be a veteran squad of seven which will be made up of the Vanir.

There will be a squad of 10 Ratling snipers that will be made up of Hasslefree Miniature's Kindred.

There will be a Sentinel Sqn of three; made up of three Vulkan battle-suits with a weapon swap.

Inso has looked through his bits-box and has decided that some will have helmets and some will have Arabic-style wraps around their heads (due to not having enough close-combat Grymn helmets). Comm-links are unlikely as well. The cavalry will not be used for this project but elements may find a way in (the worms, maybe?).

The Doctrines are currently:
Special Equipment: Carapace Armour.
Restricted Troops: Ratling Snipers.
There may be two more added; one of which may be Rough-Riders.

Well...that's what has been going on today and I thought it would be nice to finish with a pretty picture so without further ado, here's Libby in rather brightly painted, Powered Armour from Hasslefree Miniatures:

Catch you later!
