Re: Squat Mercenaries (now with cyberslayer)

Thank you both for your comments.

I'm working to expand my cyberslayers unit.

In that vein, I painted one of the Fantastic Miniatures limited edition berserkers. A Bob Olley sculpt. Loved painting this one.

That's a crazy looking little dude. :D Love what you've done with the tank on his belt. Feeding it right to his brain to keep him all happy, huh? Nice!

Thank you!

"All happy" . . . "Berserk and murderous" . . . Same thing to squat.

Yes - they each have one sleeved and one unsleeved arm. The struggle of plastic squat arms. Not a single one fit well here.

The model on the right was my first attempt at painting a non-Caucasian realistic skin tone.

I've now painted another of the unreleased second edition squat cyberslayers.

All of 'em! The other unreleased cyberslayer is on deck, along with a pair of Fantastic Miniatures Olley-sculpted berserkers.

I decide a while back that I would rather slim my collection and get a few new nice pieces. On the theory that "I can never get around to painting everything I currently have, but there are other things I'd like to pick up."

So this has meant selling things. And buying unreleased squats. And roborgs. And a megabot. Etc.

Tangent: I saw you mention on another thread you were looking to trade for more squats. PM and let me know what you're looking for. I'm also in the U.S. so this is easier than it often is . . .

All three of the unreleased cyberslayers now painted.

Soon to be added to the mix - the Olley Berserkers assembled above.

I look forward to this expensive unit being shot up as it moves slowly toward the enemy.

Which is the big squat flaw. A high WS means you want hand to hand. But your move is so slow. And transports are death traps.
