This Is Not A Test! - a little bit of painting and photography.


Earlier this year I was invited to take some photos for a new game called This Is Not A Test, from World's End Publishing. Joey McGuire has put together a great game that owes a lot to Necromunda and Mordheim, but is set in a post-Apocalyptic Mid-Atlanic coast area, basically the area Joey grew up in and lives now.

As well as the game, Joey is building up a great range of minis for TNT. At a recent photo session, Joey was kind enough to hand me a couple of the models, including this guy, the leader of the Peacekeeper faction. With an interesting blend of western gear (chaps and duster) and modern tactical equipment (helmet and armor), this guy has a lot of character.


It was nice to get back to painting, after a week or so of assembly, conversions, and sculpting.


And here's a nice teaser shot for you from the TNT rulebook, due out in the next few months : )


Just quickly, I thought I'd post up this commissar. I painted him up last night as a 40th birthday gift for a buddy of mine. He has fallen ill, so his party has been postponed. I guess he'll have to wait until January to get his hands on it.

Cheers
Dave

    1. Hi Neil, I'm not sure. They aren't from Joey's range, so they very well could be from Heresy. The Legion models they are fighting are converted from Warlord's plastic Romans.

    1. Thanks mate. Yeah, the TNT range will be pretty cool and quite ecclectic.

  3. That is a really nice looking commissar. That makes me want to add orange to all of my reds.

    1. Thanks mate, but there's no orange in that red (well, none mixed in). It's Hull Red to start, highlighted up by adding in Flat Red.
