The Marionettes 2.0 (part 2) 7 of 9


Greetings Hivers!
Work is progressing (at a tediously slow pace thanks to being classed as a key worker) with my Renegade Mech Venator band, the Marionettes.




This brings the gang to 7 of 9 members.....actually there's a Rogue Doc and a pet to add making 11 in total but who doesn't want to see an excuse to show a photo of Jeri Ryan from Picard?


First up are a couple of gangers (or grunts) toting Autoguns.

Their armament may seem a little underwhelming....

.....but their ocular implants mean that their accuracy can be relied upon to pin their foe.

The next couple of gangers are my assault specialists armed with a Flechette Pistol, a Shock Stave and Smoke Grenades.

These cost way too many credits for what they do (165creds!) but their armament fits the Ad-Mech background perfectly. The reason they cost so much is because the only way to give them the Flechette Pistol is to give them the Delaque Legacy which makes them very expensive.

Fortunately, the rule of cool rules all in our games...

....so while it would make much more sense to give these weapons to my champions....

I like the models too much to bother about their lack of efficiency.

Besides, I have other plans for my two champions πŸ˜‰

Until next time....may the Hive Spirits watch over you! πŸ˜‰

  1. Damn these guys look as terrifying as they are in combat now! The two assault specialists are a nightmare on the table regardless of the points and the auto guns are realy under rated especially in the right hands.

      As ever, the problem is getting them into combat. I obviously still need to work on my strategy algorithms ;-)

  2. OMG Gary these guys are amazing, another great job.
    How did you find the conversion work, was it all pretty simple or did you require quite a bit of green stuffing?
    BTW I preferred Seven when she wore her Borg suit (far sexier).
    Stay safe buddy and keep us entertained with you modelling and painting skills.

    1. Thanks Rob.
      The conversion work was pretty straightforward, the gangers with legs were a bit fiddly because of the leg poses (there was a bit of cursing and blood loss) but the ones that used Dark Eldar Talos mechandrites were pretty easy.

      It goes without saying that Seven looked great in Voyager but 20 years later I still think she looks great....and she has that rebel thing going for her as well now, which only makes her more alluring to me ;-)

      Be well my friend.

      Just the two champions, a pet and a Rogue Doc to go and then I can start on the Orlocks 😁

  6. Oh, that's sweet. I had this very same conversion idea, but never put it into practice. Your work is highly inspiring, I love the overall aspect and how dreadful they all look!

    1. Gracias Suber.
      I'm pretty happy with how they've turned out, the two champions that I'm working on will look a little less dishevelled than these...but hopefully they'll still retain the sinister feel that I'm going for.

      Be well my friend.
