Last time I went to visit the great sho3box he treated me to a day out at Prince August Ireland's finest toy soldier factory. It was the greatest day ever.

[center]sho3box (left) and me (right) being all cool at Prince August.

There at the factory of dreams I feasted upon the piles of vintage Warzone blisters with great plans to rebuild the exact same Imperial Mega Corporation Army of my nerdy teenage years starting with a squad of Wolfbane Commandos.

[center] The derpy eyes betray the anxiety of standing on a non-standard 32mm base.

Wolfbane Commandoes suffered from the classic 1990s problem of feet spilling over the 25mm base edge, so Wolfbane #1 I painted (above left) got a 32mm base. But the more I looked at it, the more I feared I'd betrayed the Spirit of the 1990s, so Wolfbane #2 got a classic 25mm base with dark green drybrushed sand, with which I was much happier, and so I did the whole squad this way.

[center] An actual shelf in my house, or a highly contrived setting to make you feel it's the 1990s? Answers in the comments!

The colour scheme is a pretty straight copy of the original studio colour scheme, as I wanted to relive those days when "giant yellow shoulder pads" and "commando" could be unironically synonomous.

I really enjoyed painting these old metal nuggets, and hope to build the army up with some Imperial Blood Berets next.

Ninjabread out!

Cool, I've been sculpting some Warzone style stuff just lately. I even made a mould and am casting some up in resin. Sadly the temperature's a bit cool and the resin's not setting up great. Casting's a bit like my great white whale.

Its been years and Im still 'erked' I missed getting the Plastic miniatures. Burns when 'life' gets in the way.

A terrific game, lots of fond memories with it. Your painting looks great.

Those pictures gave me a jumpstart to youthful enthusiasm.

Then all my ailments kicked in. But for a few fleeting seconds, it was all ok. Thanks for posting!
