Ever opened a copy of one of the realm of chaos books when you were ten? Ever tried to own each and everyone of the Jes Goodwin chaos champion? Ever spent days lurking on ebay for a complete Kaleb Dark or chaos toilets?

Astro-porter and complete Colony 87 range painted (so far)
I can tell you that was quite a haul but I've finally managed to finish the complete colony 87 range (both 1st and 2nd waves) with this gorgeous little porter (I know I'm ignoring some familiars) !
In all honesty, this was a bit unusual for me to work on so many model one at a time since I'm usually a great supporter of taylorism applied to the hobby (One sesion for a given colour on models from many different projects...) but since all those are so full of character, they just required the extra attention and I'm quite happy with the result !
I've left this particular model because like most of the others I had too many ideas but for this one I couldn't really make my mind. When the time to finish it arose, I couldn't falter !
The asian vibe conveyed by the hat and shoes is very intersting but I didn't really want to make a "space asian" of this model if you see what I mean. I've decided to paint it more casually and not to drive too much attention to those elements in order to give an asian vibe to a space porter more than give loads to bear to a space asian (hope all this makes sense to you ^^')
Don't ask about the camo trousers, I have absolutely no idea why I painted those, it just happen and I'm very glad it did to be honest.
So here we are, here's the first range completely painted :
And since the 2nd one was painted before that, here's the complete collection of models (minus the familiars) :
Now if by a cataclysmic turn of events you had the misfortune to miss the first Kickstarter, I cannot welcome you warmly enough to give the second one a go !
You'll find miniatures from both waves and very intersting combinations of the models (like a Noble set or a astroport set).
The Kickstarter has been funded in mere hours and seems to be an even greater success than the first one.
Jon/Axiom has put all his heart and talent along Will Beck and Michael Anderson to provide the finest of sci-fi civilian models so go check it out and treat yourself with some right HERE :
