Still on a terrain kick, this week I had a play with an MDF kit from Uncertain Scenery that I picked up at Salute...

Thanks, guys! That one was a heck of a lot of fun to build.

This week, I got all environmentally-friendly:



Made from an old electric toothbrush head, a little plasticard, a piece from the Maelstrom's Edge terrain sprue, and a piece off the end of a superglue lid.

If you hadn't ID'd it I'd have never twigged that was an electric toothbrush- what a great build! Nice addition to the diorama.

I'm sure I've said it before, but you are an absolute wizard at bitz-bashing terrain together.

Any idea how many MEdge terrain sprues you've gone through up to this point?

A friend and I recently talking about dusting off the original Necromunda rules for a bash has me feeling a little inspired. WIP Cawdor gang, using various assorted old 40K and Necromunda weapons and @maelstromsedge Broken Infantry for bodies. Two more gangers and a couple of juves still to build, and then I can get some paint on. \

Playing with some resin, for this week's modeling article:


- by Iain Wilson



The Epirian SecDef received a boost right in the Command slot last month with the release of a resin Lieutenant model. This fleshes the SecDef out into a fieldable Epirian sub-faction in their own right, as you can now build a detachment solely from SecDef units. This week, I'm taking a closer look at this fantastic model, and some of the modeling options available to it.













The SecDef Lieutenant comes in five pieces (ok, six, if you count the base!) - body, head, targeter, and two different hand options equipped with maglock pistol or carbine.









The head and targeter both have ball joints for full movement range, so you can position the targeter lined up with whichever way the Lieutenant is facing.















The head is also compatible with the SecDef plastics, so you can use a regular helmeted head for a slightly more safety-conscious leader. On the below model, I've used a regular SecDef Tactical head, and also clipped the helmet off his belt and glued on a plastic pouch from the Epirian Handler sprue to cover over the clipped detail.









You can also easily swap in alternate heads from elsewhere in the range. Here's a commander with a little more facial hair, for example, with a head lifted from the Broken Infantry sprue.









Carefully sawing through the waist with a razor saw allows you to swap in alternate legs to switch up the posing. Here, I've used a set of legs removed from a SecDef Boostpack Infantry model, and also given him a capped head from the Epirian Contractor sprue.









Of course, the compatible heads work both ways, so you can also swap in the Lieutenant's venerable pate for a regular SecDef Sergeant.












To get some of your own super-soldier action happening, you can pick up the SecDef Lieutenant, along with the rest of the Maelstrom's Edge model range in the webstore here.









As always, feel free to pop along and share your creations, or ask any Maelstrom's Edge- or hobby-related questions on the Comm Guild Facebook page!



For other Maelstrom's Edge modeling articles, including tutorials and walkthroughs of a wide range of different building and miniature projects, check out the Hobby section of the Maelstrom's Edge website here.

I was honestly expecting you to say like 30 or something. How very restrained of you!


Really nice command pose on that SecDef Lt.
The more I see of them the more I'm liking the Epirian aesthetic.

Progress on the Necromunda gang... Leader, two heavies, five gangers and two juves. Just need to do a little minor sculpting on the Leader, and then ready for paint.

Getting some paint on the Necromunda gang. I actually quite like the sepia-Sin-City thing that they have going on at the moment... it's tempting to just paint the bases and call them done

The gangers are coming along nicely.

Just looking at the Militus warsuit. Just how poseable are they?

They're very poseable. This particular guy needed a little trimming on some of the joints to make the pose work, and the shoulder pads can be problematic for poses with the arms raised, but everything being a ball joint gives you an awful lof of freedom.
