Oh wow, I didn't exect that! Well, I havne't painted them yet, my lighting is bad, my potato-cam is a few generations out of date, my hands shake, and the picture is a little blurry, but hopefully this will help a little until I can take some better pictures (painted, if I'm feeling ambitious enough! :) )
Some of the details:
- That's a Reaper Bones "Blackstar Corsair" in the back, standing in for S.N.A.K.E. power-armor. It looks great with the Eisenkern figures!
- The running figure in the foreground, third figure from the left, is one of the lady Eisenkerne troopers, but in Eisenkern armor it's hard to tell who is male or female a glance, really (the helmets are shaped a little different for the female figures, and their waists are just the smallest bit more hourglass-shaped.)
- The Officer in the back, just to her right, has a Bolt Action Winter Russian head with a scarf over the mouth, on a Wargames Atlantic "Cannon Fodder" jump-suited body and backpack. This combination actually looks very close to the original Cobra Officer (and Trooper) figure, and mixes well with the Eisenkern figures (the helmets are very similar in style.)
- It's hard to see, but the figure in the very back, second from the left, has an RPD or RPK-style machine gun with drum magazine. He's also got the lower half of a "Cannon Fodder" body, and the cloth sleeves from one of the Project Z soldiers the machine gun came from - these combine well with the Eisenkerne upper torso/chest armor - since he'll be carrying the squad's machine-gun and ammo, I figure he'll appreciate a little less encumbrance!
- I think all the magazine belt-pouches came with one Eisenkerne set or another (probably that set that included the great little "mule" bots.)
Some bits I kinda wish I had would include hand-held radio/mobile handsets - I think the Eisenkerne troops have some sort of futuristic comms gear built into their helmets, but the hand-held sets would suit the 20th/21st Century private army thing better. Also, a Dragunov-style marksman/sniper rifle would have been nice as well.
Not shown is the Eisenkern trooper with "Cannon Fodder" arm-swap for the heavy-duty Cannon Fodder BFG - the arm swap worked great, but I also gave a test-fit for a GW Chaos Knight skull-shaped helm which I imagined as some sort of goofy over-the-top villain, I'd have called him The Iron Skull, and figured him as a megalomaniac officer of some sort, with visions of establishing his own Ruritanian totalitarian military government. The GW figures are, I believe, shorter than the Eisenkern figures, but the GW helmet looks outrageously big on an Eisenkern body! The result looks a bit goofy! I'll have to remove it, and try some sort of Plan B. Back to the drawing board....
By the way, @Geoff Maybury : your paint job on that battlemech/titan and the accompanying Eisenkern guy look great! I love the rust effect!
