Simply excellent looking figures, great job.  It's also nice to see a painted unit of the Cyclopes Forge figures.

This army has actually been a lot of fun to paint so far. We're almost done! We're just finishing up some of the figures and then on to all the basing. Finished pictures should be up today. I'll see about getting them put up here...

For those contemplating Francesco's Lotus proxies, they are resin, and a little bit smaller than the old Target models, but the sculpts are nice.  I bought 2 three packs, and had Brand X put an extra standard on one of them.  I'll have to find the pose that is going to be my leader for this unit.  It's nice to have them all together. 

I've promised some friends they have first play with this army against me.

@ Glenn M - Tempting, but I think Joshua would probably be rather upset about that! ;)


@ PhillySniper - Why would you need to strip them??? We can do that too! :D


Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

How about a group photo of the entire army so I can drool all over my desk! :D

Coming from you Glenn, that's the biggest compliment Brand X could receive.  Your work is very good Glenn, and if I were Chaotic Evil, I'd shank you for your collection!!

In all honesty I'm happy the forum approves, as it's the forum who will eventually, one day, get to push these models across a table at Talamania, or mi casa. 

This army is played primarily by two close friends of mine, and I think all will be happy to see this incredible army.
I'm havin' a moment here.

I demand to see pictures and a full battle report when your FB and CL face each other at Talamania.

I told Thomas that I would make that happen.  Nothing could beat seeing these two painted armies in an actual game for their gallery, and ours!! 

Now Coil, if you just buy the plane ticket, you can play these guys!!


 I remember him playing them unpainted, with some that I've painted, last year at Talamania.  Sigh.  The money was spent last year on the tables, so this year it's painted armies.  Sorry Andreas.   ::)

Thomas tells me they're seeing some Warzone models come in.  I'm happy that this has been such a symbiotic relationship.  Brand X are exceedingly professional, and they are gamers too.  Word of mouth like this is the best advertising there is; you can't beat seeing the work they do from someone you actually know.
