Remember Fred? Remember I told you he would show up again? Well I did not tell the entire truth, thát Fred does not feature in today's post. It is his brother, conveniently also called Fred or CGAG-02, makes an appearance here. He has shipped in on board the ARBCO freighter Baroness and is trying to smuggle a dangerous cargo inland.
Fred02 and his band of thugs (Crooked Dice miniatures "The Firm" with one Fred-head replacement) have chartered Captain Jeremiah Barnaby,
formerly of the Alliance Shipping firm now hostilely taken over by ARBCO industries ltd, to smuggle a band of Thuggees (more CD mini's) under the leadership of the Master of the Cristal Orb
and a trio of martial artists (even more CD mini's) into the US.
Here are some more close ups of the ship. It's a TTCombat MDF lasered ship. Their kits are incredibly well made and not that expensive and well worth it. Would I have done things differently putting it together? Yes I would but I wanted it on my table ASAP, so this is it. I left the roof of the cabin and the upper cabin detached from the lower cabin so I could use it for gaming. The containers are separate too, I have 3 more to do and these will be done after the Challenge.
Some more pictures of Fred02 and his friends. One of the gangsters actually has a stocking over his head, but I cannot paint the see-through material, so I made it into a plastic bag. If you can guess from what store it is, I have done a good enough job ;-)
This post amounts to 12 painted 28mm figures and a big ship. The figures are 5 points each so that's 60 points but I leave it up to Phil and Sylvain to come up with the points for the freighter.
Oh gosh Sander, you're throwing us a curveball this morning. that freighter is awesome, I've seen it on eBay, but not picked one up yet. You've done a smashing job detailing up what could be quite plain mdf with that natty white and red colour scheme.
Fred02Captain Barnaby looks like a badass with his orange jacket and shotgun, and very fine Thuggee cultists and red ninja protecting the ship's precious cargo. (EDIT: Minion should pay more attention)
Give the size of the ship, and detail you've put into it, I'm going to score it as three 28mm vehicles, so 45 points for a total of 105. Bravo!
