Anolis for my ESE force

Hey all

I enjoyed working on that ESE Black Mamba duelist so much that I decided to paint a gear in Guillaume’s style to add to the group, rather than rebasing and touching up another prepainted model. Since they’re the ESE they like an odd mix of cheap military surplus gears and more expensive flashy mercenaries and bodyguards to the Emirs, so I painted up a cheap old Anolis Refit recon gear.

While you can still buy the Anolis it actually doesn’t have any rules in the official Living Rule Book, but is present in our Brigand Ruleset expanded model list.

The objective was to have the model fit in with the stuff Guillaume had already painted, but still fit with the way I paint. I don’t know what paints he used, so I had to approximate using what I have.

Heavy Gear Blitz – Bobcat recon gear

Hello friendly interpeeps!

I recently got an order from the excellent UK miniature store Shiny Games – the sole UK distributor of Heavy Gear Blitz miniatures. I highly recommend the store – it has very good customer service and is quick to post, plus the guy who runs it is clearly a gamer himself.

In fact the reason for this post is that the order came with a little note from the manager of Shiny Games saying he looked forward to seeing a Bobcat gear painted, which spurred me into action.

So here he is!
