I love these minis with their large helmets & backpacks.
As are the "Black Bear " power armour. ( photos show still to be weathered numbers)
I decided to do them as Italian forces as this faction is rarely seen in sci-fi.
And my personal favourite the Savoia Marchetti Lambretta XL jetbike
The leader & adjutant are from Brigade's Fasolini brigade. Very nice
minis also, most probably by the same sculptor. The leader represents
a grizzled old high born veteran, Il Duca Guglielmo Vazarini di Manoforte ( Duke William )
Arditi ( Bold or daring ) is the name given to particular WW1 Italian troops.
The Mecha are from Ion Age. Also solid nice models
White undercoat, Reddish brown base and W&N peat brown washes.
Black + grey helmets & boots.
Dark grey weapons
Mecha done as above plus Tamiya dark brown panel wash
The leaves on the base are the madiera vine flowers and I put them one by one ... yes a trial of patience
but well worth the effort
Thanks for your comments.
