Just before signing off for the festive period, I thought I’d show off a few bits and pieces I’ve put together for Terminator: Genysis from Warlord Games.
Warlord, fairly regularly, have sales of stuff that isn’t selling especially well and, quite frankly, nothing fits that description better than their Terminator line.
Therefore, in the summer, a sale popped up and I took the opportunity to buy a few bits and pieces to add to my collection - like those two regular Terminators above.
In the sale was a ‘spider-dog’ mobile gun platform, which came with a choice of three weapons. I went with the rocket launcher as it adds some anti-tank punch for when Matt inevitably builds and paints his Abrams tank.
The presence of a flamethrower opened up the opportunity of a quick conversion of a regular endoskeleton for some close range pest control.
I then used the weapon bits I’d carved off the flamethrower guy to fashion a command upgrade unit to fit to the back of the final endoskeleton. This allows me access to some of the tactical options available to the Resistance, using a commander to concentrate fire or coordinate movement.
My final upgrade to the Machines was an infiltrator, which was easily done by giving a Resistance model an arm replacement. I splattered blood over the arm suggesting that the infiltrator has only just been revealed.
Given that I’d bought a single sprue of Resistance models to make one infiltrator, it only seemed fair to paint the others up to add a couple more commanders (and several plasma rifles) to my force.
None of what I’ve painted is particularly special, this project is the very definition of quick and cheap. However, I am considering revisiting my Terminators with a silver drybrush to brighten them up.
Future plans for this game involve kitbashing some characters for Wargames Factory plastic survivors and terrible Tank I picked up cheaply.
Oh, and Arnie.
On that festive note, have a great Christmas and I’ll be back with our big Christmas game and review of 2018 just before New Year.
Ho ho ho!
