Who says women cannot be genetically modified warriors? Not Warlord Games anyway, as seen in the background for one of their units in Konflikt 47:
Using a low level of DNA enhancement through their Rift-tech programme, the Soviet Union has created an all-female, propaganda-driven elite unit. Combined with intensive training and indoctrination, the unit has proven highly effective in combat, although is only used when causalities are anticipated to be minimal. Their battlefield successes may well see them deployed in broader roles as the war progresses.
I got this set from Alchemists Workshops and have been itching to dig into them (and build an army around them). While these models are similar in scale to the big competitors on the scene, GW, they don’t use that heroic scale to them. Less larger than life and more down and gritty fighting a war.
Now metal minis are a rarity these days in my modelling but this entire set is metal. This came with its own problems bent guns, in one case snapped completely off. No sprues to keep them safe before being clipped out. These arrive in a box that contains what is essentially a large blister pack, which lets the models rattle around a touch.
Another oddity I have found is the bases. The models come with feet attached to a basing section, which is then set into the base. Presumably one is now meant to build up this to the same level. It seems like an odd choice after all this.
All in all though I really am looking forward to painting them up. I think they will look very well alongside my Shadow Wars team and my Gothic KV2.
Next step is some filling in of the bases and getting my paint on.
Thanks again to Alchemists Workshops for sending these over:
