There is going to be a Grymn civil war soon when all of the Grymn Inso has decide they are going to riot over which ones he treasures the most!  :D

Nice army so far Inso, although this is just a fraction of the true massed hords of the shorties you have.

Ah, but do they know that?

What happens when you switch the light off at night? Do you ever go back to the painting desk to find a miniature or two not exactly where you thought you left them?

I did one night, one of Andy's trenchcoaters was amongst some GW orlock's with two of them knocked over on their side . . . . . now I have placed a few obsticles in the way to make their assault a little more difficult this time . . . .

Unfortunately, I didn't get very far with the latest tunnel fighter squad this week:



But the Drone squad has fared a little better...and yes, the Aerial Drones ARE that small :) :



I just have to sort out the bases on all of the Drones and paint the controller and that will be another little squad finished :mrgreen:!

Umm..... is that a hello Kitty Lap-top? It's awesome, adds just that little bit of character (if not practicality but then again this isn't reality... for most some of us)

Very Cool

Well done Inso.

The latest finished 'basic' squad...Pink Squad :) :



Only another two basic squads and a close combat squad and it's on to the weirder units again :) ...sappers, logistics, field police, engineers...

Ha, I was patiently waiting (with dial-up speed) for this bright pink squad to show up. I like that spider-drone type thing. :thumbup: :thumbup:

The Tunnel Fighters have gone topside and have enlisted the help of a mech...or two :)  (Still WIP):



I have a bunch more and will end up with 11 in total...



Each mech will be attached to one of the squads...the mech in the pic will be added to blue squad which has shotguns and flame-throwers...this mech has a flame-thrower so suits the squad theme :).

They come in pink too (first of three of these 'Brutish-Dogs'...there is a real hint of irony in that title, I guess):



I haven't put the shoulder pads on yet...for painting purposes.

...oh...and there is an update on my Blog with finished pix of the first one too...

Didn't the SAS use to ride round in pink landrovers in the desert ? so these could be for your special forces  :lol:

Yep they did...and we used to use a soluble pink paint to cover the helicopters with when they went on desert ops too...

...but back to mechs and I have 'un-pinked' the Brutish Dog and started on the second one too:



I haven't finished either of them but I thought I'd show off a Brutish Dog in duller colours so that you get a bit more of the brute showing.

There are more pix over at Inso's World and also a bit of other information...dare I say 'Scenery'?

Nice work as usual, Inso. :applause: :thumbup: :smile:

After seeing this, I've just ordered a Brutish Dog from Comet! :whistle:
Is that a 50 or 60mm base you've used for mounting?

@ballistic_bro:  Yay!  Votoms power :mrgreen:!  I have used 60mm dreadnought bases for the mechs...still need a bunch too...may get a couple of those scenic ones from GW at some point...mind you, I have plenty to be getting on with for the time being :).

Have to admit, they do look pretty cool. :smile:

Thanks Inso, I'll have to get some 60mm bases. Looking forward to the Brutish arriving. :smile:
