Hi all,

this my firts topic from France.

I began miniatures wargames with warzone first edition. I didn't paint a lot in 1995, but I buy lot of minis. With the announce of WZR, i open my boxes plenty of old minis and I ask to a friend to paint army capitol faction. He paints lot of historical minis. (http://bonoborcprodutions.blogspot.fr/)

Welcome to the board nice to see the old style minis which I have a lot of as well, I have lots of fond memories of playing 1st edition when it 1st came out, then 2nd & 3rd and now the latest version (yet to be played), will be nice to see what you do with the newer sculpts as well.

Great looking models, nice to see the old stuff! :)
Strangely the blue works very well on the infantry, makes me rethink the paint scheme for my models

For the blue armor, I was inspired by this picture (top of the page)

I have been dancing back and forth on whether or not I want to go down a blue theme on my Capitols. Your paint job goes a long ways toward selling the idea of blue. That, and your link takes me back to the 90s. :)

Edit: Sgt Carter reminds me of Sgt Slaughter.

What is this white guy on the page? I thought I would know all old pictures but I haven't seen that one until now.

Micmellon, it looks photoshopped. Nice little concept though.

Love the old art work! I wonder if we'll see those cartel spacemen in the near future. If what prodos has done with icarus pilot is any indication, they would look awesome. Would also be cool for a scenario in space!

Ho! And those old sculpts are ace!!!
