EM4 Miniatures Bikers and Scavenger

So after painting up the EM4 Savages I've fancied having a go at the Bikers and Scavenger ranges. Below is the first 4 WIP figures. The skin still needs the last wash/tidy and final highlight or 3 in the case of the lady.

I'll get better pictures taken when they are finished.

The Swamp Ratz - Part 1



The Tribes of  The Swamp Ratz have lived within the Underhive for millennia and treat it as a living Deity much in the same way as their distant kin the Ratskin . They believe the Underhive is both generous in its bounty and merciless in its vengeance. They have little to do with the Hivers and are rarely encountered, preferring to steer clear of the heathens who desecrate their sacred hive by poisoning its sacred places.

The Pantheon of Chaos

The Four Great Powers of Chaos

The most powerful of the Chaos entities are those known as the Chaos Gods, also sometimes referred to as the "Dark Gods" or the "Ruinous Powers". These entities are described as being enormously powerful, and seeking to extend that power into the realm of mortals. They do this by attracting followers amongst mortals by promising power, wealth, immortality or whatever else the potential servant desires. The gods are typically capricious, selfish and vain, demanding absolute loyalty from their servants and rewarding deeds when they wish, in whatever ways they deem appropriate.

Remember Havok?

Havok was a short-lived wargame created by Steve Baker and Bluebird Toys in 1997. It was designed as a cheaper alternative to Warhammer 40,000 and was aimed at a younger audience. The key defining feature of Havok miniatures was the use of soft, flexible plastic in production, the hand pre-painted, pre-assembled models, 35mm plastic bases and decorative sticker for the models and bases, which meant that additional paints and glue was not necessary.
Havok shared many themes with Warhammer 40,000 , including the Space-Marine-like Karn Empire, the Nexus Rebellion- who looked like Imperial Guard- and the Pteravore, whose main unit was almost identical to Tyranid Genestealers. The Karn and Nexus "Battleforms" are also not dissimilar to Space Marine Dreadnoughts.
