|"...Forming small, closed communities within larger societies."|
This 28mm metal model of an Overseer is manufactured by "Warlord Games" and is one of three miniatures which form part the Boromites' Overseer Squad blister pack. Equipped with a Tractor Maul, as well as a Plasma Carbine, this "limited choice" Infantry Commander will be the leader of my slowly-growing 500-point Boromite Scouting Force.
Initially undercoated with "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey, the figure was washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil, before having a layer of Chaos Black applied over all of its weaponry. The model's reflex armour was then slowly 'picked out' with "Vallejo" Heavy Ochre and subsequently washed with some watered-down "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade.
As I didn't want the extraterrestrial miner's pouches and firearm to be predominantly black I painted a few of the miniature's pocket-bags with a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Brown and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade, and its "highly sophisticated and adaptable" plasma weapon with "Citadel" Ironbreaker and Nuln Oil. The "hard hitting" "highly focused energy" device also had its plasma coil highlighted using some "Vallejo" Heavy Red and "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson.

Finally, the Boromite leader's delicately sculpted wires leading from the soldier's formidable-looking hand-weapon into his reflex-armoured girdle were 'traced' using "Vallejo" Heavy Blue and washed with "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade. Whilst his "work tool" was treated to a coat of "Vallejo" Gunmetal Grey and a splash of "Citadel" Nuln Oil.
Ordinarily costing 105 points for an Overseer and two similarly armed Gangers, I have decided to pay an additional 5 points for the senior Boromite to actually wield the Tractor Maul his sculpt shows him carrying. This "badge of office" actually denotes his importance on the battlefield and is designed "to extend a suspensor field around and object or area and pull it away or aside." As a result in-game, they provide a model with the ability to have two attacks in hand-to-hand fighting", as "they... can quite literally tear an enemy limb from limb."
|"Frostgrave" Sci-Fi Terminator WIPs - The model now simply needs some washes to be applied|
With all of my focus for "Doctor Who: Exterminate!" by "Warlord Games" now falling upon the completion of the Dalek Patrol needed in order to play the game's introductory scenario "A Meeting Of Metal", I have become working on Dalek Sec, the leader of the Cult of Skaro. Unlike the other 'gold-coloured Kaleds', the former commander of the Seventh Incursion Squad has been predominantly painted "Citadel" Abaddon Black and dry-brushed with some "Vallejo" Heavy Charcoal.
Lastly, I have made some significant progress on another of the "North Star Military Figures" figures I plan to use as Tomás de Torquemada's infamous Terminators whilst playing "Mutants And Death Ray Guns" by "Ganesha Games". Assembled using pieces from both the Nottingham-based company's Cultist Sci-Fi Accessory Pack and plastic "Frostgrave" Cultist boxed set, this heavily-armed addition to my "Nemesis The Warlock" mini-project should mean that I'm about three-quarters of the way towards being able to field an all-human Purity Squad based upon Pat Mills' "2000 A.D." comic book despot.
