Why, of course I jumped on the opportunity to do a Halloween Workbench article. The choice was made, and our Fearless Editor and Host was kind enough to send me some old Trinity Battleground Aberrants: Deneesha and Slint. "A blast from the past," he called 'em. They're a couple of mean-looking mutant-type villains from the far future. I mean, what could be more frightening than a giant cockroach and a snake with 6 arms rampaging through your space colony?

Anyway… the package arrived safe and sound, so I tore into it to get a feel for the figs right away. They are old Bob Naismith sculpts, large-ish evil creatures half again as tall as your average human. Minimal flash, small slottabase, and a data/equipment/stat type card included.

The figures

The very next thing I did was invoke my web fu and use this as an excuse to buy some new figs. (They need opponents, right?) Noble Knight Games had some of the fearless humans in stock, so I grabbed a blister or two and went to work. While waiting for them, I figured I had to swap out their bases for larger square ones on my paint table. And place some thin cardboard to hold some debris, as well as simulate the ground splitting under the weight of their sheer menace and insidious malevolence. (They're Very Bad Guys.) Once that was done and dry, I spray-primed with a flat brown, and drybrushed with a flat gray to bring up the details.
