So I picked up an Orphans force from Zenit Miniatures based in Spain. It is for a skirmish game called Nemesis. I've briefly scanned the rules but the figs are what has attracted meare cool.
Here is their store front ..Warning...the artwork at top of the site is NSFW (big 'ol boobies)Zenit Store
When you see Orphans think Wild Boys from Peter Pan. They dress up like insects and fight in the forest.
- Quote :
What dark, what terrible abomination… lie in wait for, harass, destroys… hundreds of children, all of them lost their families during the first Zenit wars. I found them hidden in the amazing Traveling Forest of the Glauks, crouched and lying in wait for, like the beast that turned them into what they are.
Their skinny bodies stagnant in childhood hide their fierceness, their eagerness for blood, because they consider everybody their enemies, and they have all the time in the world to destroy them. Because theirs is the power to deceive time, yes… to twist it until stopping it forever between the branches of the trees, and to turn it into a weapon at their service. Disguised as insects, turning into legends and old grandma tales, The Orphans hide in the shadows of their forests and wait to see the backs of their opponents… of their prey… to attack with a mortal sting.
The first figure I've painted is a Mantis. They use a Jai Alai strapped to their arms to chuck rocks/nuts at the opposing force.
I will be going w/ a fall theme for the force. The base currently is a bit bland but I inted to put some leaf litter down when I find it.
The paint job was slapped together under 2 hours this morning (while I was waiting on my airbrushed River trolls to dry) It needs some clean up, blends and additional highlights but for a test I'm quite happy.
Hope y'all like seeing something different once in a while

Awesome miniature, digging the paint job too. Would love to see a group where they have different colored armor (from different creatures.)
That mini also gets me really interested in this game and the rest of the range... scurries off to google nemesis skirmish game...
