I managed to bury a few figs from my lead pile. These 15mm figs are from Critical Mass games and originally were 'mercenaries' but I believe there was a bit of a kickstarter to expand their range. I grabbed these fellows within the last year when critical mass were closing but hadn't yet been announced as being picked up by Ral Partha Europe.
I previously had a set of 5 but thought it would be wise to get some extras when it was possible the range might disappear. Looking back at the blog I realized I haven't done anything on this front since late 2014. Shameful. Expect some developments soon.
A number of people have recognized their excellent suitability as 'snakemen' miniatures to match the some of the enemies in the wonderful computer game series XCOM. So this is what I was channeling.
I first played xcom in the mid 90's and it was a very cool game. The reboot in 2012 took all the good, stripped out the tedious and made a sweet new package. Sweet enough to do a reimagining where the humans lost and are now the resistance in XCOM2. It's pretty amusing to see how far graphics have come in a side by side placement.
