1st Jaguar Guards Bravo Assault Star "Nobori-nin" Alt. config. B Mech

After a lot of urgent family matters I finally got back to the painting table. This conversion of Ral Partha's Nobori-nin to represent the Bravo configuration is my latest work.

AvP: Unleashed - an unexpected parcel arrived today

When I came home a few minutes ago from a local Warhammer 40,000 tournement I was watching, an unexpected parcel obstructed my way through the door of my appartment.

It was from Archon (read: Prodos Games) in Poland. The content:

-AVP: Unleashed hardcover rulebook (tabletop rules for the boardgame miniatures), labelled version 1.0 (March 2017)

-Kickstarter Exclusive Female Predator figure (missing from my first KS delivery)

-a pack of Facehuggers plus 2 extra Huggers (for a total of 7 miniatures as promised via stretchgoals and freebies for backers; the extra two ones were also missing from my first KS shipment)

-4 Colonial Marines objective markers (cut-in-half "Bishop" Android; also not contained in my initial KS shipment)

WOW - now the only thing still missing is actually the pack with alternate heads that according to Prodos still isn't signed off for by Fox Entertainment's liscense department.

Still, count me in as one happy AVP fan.

For the Assault Star I had to paint another "Loki", so here he is:

Yes, I actually did paint a second one.

1st Jaguar Guards Bravo Assault Star "Man O' War" Mech

This is an old Ral Partha sculpt, I have only added SRM-6 launchers from the Iron Wind Metal Omni-Mech part catalogue to finish off a "prime" configuration.

Otomo Heavy Lance "Archer" Mech

The classics return to the battlefield - unfortunately one of the antennas snapped off when I took the pictures. 😢

I hope the well-knowing BT fans can tell me whether I painted the cockpit in the right spot or not. 😊
