Imperial Pics

Post painted pics of your Imperial forces here.  Use a direct link from photobucket or whatever place you store your pics.  If one day we get a new gallery, we can organize all the pictures accordingly.

Here's a Blood Beret turned Golden Lions..





The first image is of how the mini looked when I got hold of it and the second one's after I hastily painted it as a Golden Lion instead. It's the minis from the game Blood Berets. It's not competition-grade painting, but I'd say it's table-top grade at least.

It took me a moment to realize there was a second photo.  Your painting saved the model, and looks as good as anything I put on my table.  Nice rescue.

Those figures bring back memories of the early days!

Hehe, well, at first I just hated the figs. They're so darned ugly, but after I painted them, I think they're acceptable..

Painted by Unknown. Bought on Ebay from Australia. They look superb IMO.


Blood Beret (1rst & 2nd Ed). Or Golden Panther (Clan Murdoch)?

From the decoration on the knee I would say he made a unit of Shamrocks a unit from the 1st ed days. They do look sweet. See if Pancreas is still around. I believe he was our resident Aussie and he might know who painted them. The Aussie community wasn't that large as I recall.

Ahh :) sure will do.

What I meant with "golden panthers?". Is that, the mini could represent the golden panthers in UWZ. :) I have a bunch of other blood berets like that as well. Also with one sgt. sitting on a Necromower. All with the 4 leaf clover. And the previous owner also used the rocketpacks from the Rams Air Cavalry mini on 4 blood berets with gas masks. (Do they represent the black berets in the UWZ btw?...) I will post the whole gott damn team later on:)
