When you’ve got a task and only the best will do! If no-one else can get their man and kill the baddies! etc etc.
The last few weeks I have been painting up the Last Chancers. Col. Shaffer’s Last Chancers were a late 90s WH40k gang that allowed you to recreate movies like The Dirty Dozen, or play Action Force “GI Joe” with your armies. The idea was that this squad were hand picked by a tough old Colonel from a bunch of prisoners, picked because of their unique skills, and were offered the chance to embark on a suicide mission (or be executed). Each character isn’t really a character but an action movie cliche. Especially the two women, “Warrior Woman” and “Rocket Girl”. I guess being female is a character trait in Nottingham.
I really enjoyed painting this lot. I put a lot into it, and whilst my critical eye sees now lots of things I could have done better, I’m still very pleased with them.
