A new force, new sweet rides, and a new inspiration

I've been away for a bit but don't let you think that I've been slacking off on my painting. Since my last update I've finished off my Khurasan federal army infantry (to be posted later, once they get some vehicles!), as well as an entire opposing force for them. One of my departures from the norm this last painting session was to try my hand at painting some vehicles for Reddit's monthly motivational painting challenge. My particular challenge was to get 4 Khurasan Iguanas and 4 Khurasan Polecats up and painted before the month was out. Here's how they turned out, as well as some other stuff I've been working on:

Khurasan releases Iguana all terrain combat vehicle.

I've been waiting for this particular model for awhile and Jon at Khurasan just posted on the miniatures page that it's now released! Get it while it's hot, I know I'm picking up a few of these beasts, the quality looks great and it appears to be absolutely huge.

Backup, vehicle shopping, and an Opfor

Besides working on some terrain and a few other side projects, my current main project is almost complete. First up, some back up for my ash waste infantry.

This guy is sold by Khurasan Miniatures as "Red Faction" power armor, but as promised, is easily serviceable as a decent sized mech in 15mm. I've decided to call it a "heavy combat drone" and the fluff I'm writing for it is going to point out that it's a re-purposed mining drone.

Chain link fences tutorial

I've been incredibly busy painting up models for use as an op-for for my urban infantry (pics to come later this week) and working on terrain and board for these models.

After looking at my E-box buildings I had a realization, no security conscience force would build all of these industrial buildings without putting up some sort of perimeter to protect them. With that in mind, and a great example and tip on materials from Redditor geekd, (who is also a member of the G+ 15mm sci-fi community, if you haven't joined it yet, it's a great resource!), I set off to make some chain links of my own!

Here's the finished product:
