By the time this is posted, I'll be en route to Cambridge to play 3 battles - the details of which will follow - but as this chap will be something of a surprise to my opponents, I didn't want to post him until I was already there!
Sadly, the pics aren't great (cruddy winter light) but here's my version of Guardsman Sly Marbo. Please trust me - he looks considerably better in real life:
It's just the old metal Catachan lascannon loader with a converted 'ripper pistol' and a different paint job. I hate the muscle-bound look of the Catachans, but Marbo is Marbo, and I quite fancied trying my hand at some 'GW-style' camouflage. I quite enjoyed it, actually!
This is one of the quickest models I've ever painted, even with those stripes on the 'demo charge' which Mrs. Drax noted made it look like one of the traps that the Ghostbusters used.
This (of course) made me laugh and hug her and love her even more.
Hope all's well - I'll let you know how the games went, and show you my new Officer of the Fleet model too (finally painted after some six years!).
