Dust – Schwer-Sturmgrenadiere and Doomsday Clock

These are really gorgeous figures and I picked them up immediately when Fantasy Flight had their sale of Dust minis in November.
First the Jagdgrenadiere armed with a 75mm caseless anti-tank gun and a twin machinegun. Just look at it. It’s such a fantastic set of minis.
Here we have the Laser-Jagdgrenadier and as you might have guessed from the name they are armed with a really big and powerful laser. Once upon a time I worked with a CO2-laser. That was great fun but what a laugh compared to this beast… Another very nicely done mini. The only thing I have against it is the magazine. I’m not sure what it’s for, surely not ammo. Spare rubies...?

They are painted like my other German heavy infantry, the only difference is that I drybrushed these here and there with 863 Gunmetal Grey to get a more worn look.
They are based om 60mm clear bases from Sally 4th. Slightly smaller than the 65mm of the official bases.

And now for something completely different – The Doomsday clock was adjusted yesterday. It was looking a bit better when the Cold War ended, but now it has been moved two minutes closer to midnight. Presently we’re at 3 minutes to, just a minute better than all-time worst in 1953.
The reason – inaction on climate change and nuclear arms. Nothing new there...
Great news everybody. Congratulations. How about not voting for idiots next election?

    As for not voting for idiots: have you seen any alternatives lately? Or indeed ever?

    1. I'd say they're my favourite minis of them all. At least until I start with the next bunch :-)
