So, I received a nice little parcel today and it stimulated a brief period of exploration in one of my storage cupboards.
It is funny really...as a bit of a miniatures hoarder, I occasionally need to reacquaint myself with my collection and today, I did just that.
What did I find? Well...to go with the five VASA Archangels that I received in my little parcel today, I found 5 Black Legion with wings, 10 Black Legion with jump-packs and 5 Shuriken Guards with wings....that is a total of 25 jump troopers in anyone's calculations!
Five of the Black Legion need a little TLC because they were an E-Bay lot and the little balls were removed from the end of their staffs for some reason...so I will need to replace those. The Shuriken Guard are a little bit on the squiffy side so they will need a little extra clean-up...but apart from that, they are all good to go.
It is a shame that I couldn't get access to my other cupboard...that is where all of the marines live and I reckon I must have about 30 VASA marines to go with the army. I seem to have secretly collected quite a lot of VASA kit...so secretly, in fact, that I didn't even realise it myself!
So...to keep with the Void theme, I have base-coated the small bike squad and am in the process of giving them a wash with Devlan Mud, ready for the next stage. Isn't it great when someone sets a little challenge that gets you painting things you hadn't looked at for ages.
...and don't look now but the Pugs are purple...and it made this cat very unhappy:
See you from the bridge of the HMS Starchaser!
