I have been working slowly on these Archive Star Ducks over the past couple of days. I need to touch up the white gloves and then flock the bases. If you look closely you will see some of the ducks have gold crests on their helmets. Those are the leaders. Then I will have three squads plus a heavy weapons team ready for play. Guard your small fish, crustaceans, snails, and worms, because marauding Space Ducks are on their way!
At Nashcon last weekend I picked up a few MDF kits from Impudent Mortal. They are not very involved kits, so I knocked them out when I just had a few minutes of free time. This set is the remote sentry weapon, but I think it will look good as some sort of crew-served system as well. I placed a 28mm figure next to it for scale. Note that the site of the weapon is translucent.
I started work over the weekend on three units of space ducks. These were originally issued by Archive Miniatures and are difficult to find. I am painting them in primary colors. I started by priming them black and then dry brushing the whole figures in white. Now I am painting in the various colors. The original sculpt is a bit mushy, but they paint up just fine.
Also from Impudent Mortal, I picked up picked up this neat industrial kit. While it is meant to be some sort of industrial tanks, I may use it as the engine room as I construct my space ship for science fiction games with Combat Patrol.
Finally, I put together these three Quonset huts from Impudent Mortal. They are slightly bigger than the Dust Tactics ones. These come in a pack of three.
I have begun working on an excellent building kit from Sally 4th. Watch for a review and the finished product in a week or see when I return from a week of family vacation.
