Hello all,

PrecinctOmega, of these hallowed forums, has recently released his 0th Edition of his first game Skrapyard. You can buy your own Bargain Starter Set below:

I am very excited by this new project and was even more excited when I got home this morning to discover a package addressed to me with a familiar return address...
I (carefully) ripped it open to find

I am very impressed with the unique style of the miniatures, the succinct nature of the ruleset and the quality of the casting.
I immediately set about assembling my new Faerie Emissary:

and Captain of Swords:

They were incredibly easy to put together, although the tabs on the feet needed bulking up to fit the bases but that's easy enough. I think they look great.

The minis are in 40mm scale (larger than GW's standard 28mm). Here's a scale shot with the nearest to regular miniature I have at the moment!

I'm going to spend a bit of time painting these up and may even experiment with different painting styles to my norm.

I for one hope to see some new miniatures released asap!

cheers

Adam

I was thinking the other day that GWs LotR Hobbits might be a good shoe-in for children in Skrapyard until there are proper models - the plastic 4 in Mines of Moria would be useful counts-as if you have them spare, if not just about all of the Hobbits GW has produced could work as well.

I like the style of the models, especially the master of swords. I didn't understand the Fey's face until I saw the painted version on the website, but the clothing is wonderful. Can I suggest green and yellow for the Master of Swords - I'm certain that those are the colours of a Devonshire regiment.

Hmm...I remember there being a character in The Lightening Tower, who was a "War Mason", apparently he was taller than a Primarch, bred for it or something...I now see a miniature to represent him!

Thanks for all the interest chaps. This certainly seems to have generated some interest.
I was thinking rifles green (from Sharpe) for the Captain of Swords and I have plans for the Fey. I have lots of rehearsals for the rest of the week but hope to get some more painting done this weekend :)

Very exciting to see the first Skrapyard plog.

I'll not butt in much, but do feel moved to observe that she is a "Captain of Swords". So many people have mistakenly called her a "Master of Swords" that I've now designed a new character with this name, but he's not going to be released before 2012, so don't hold your breath!

Huzzah endorsement from the studio its/him self!
Apologies for the repeated nominal error. I'll sort that out.

I seem to be a very busy person these days. Which is nice on the one hand but leaves little time for my hobby on the other...

I sat down this morning, next deadline isn't until Thursday, and painted the faerie emissary. I'm pretty pleased with the results and, perhaps more importantly, really enjoyed it.

I started, uniquely for me, with a skull white undercoat;

I wanted to try painting using glazes, washed and inks and also wanted to be able to see the details better as the miniature is very intricate on its own!

I'm not sure I quite hit the nail on the head but the mini looks very cool anyway and I got to try out some new/ rarely considered techniques. I'm going to paint the captain of the swords fro ma black undercoat to see if they will still work well next to each other. The theory is that the techniques will mark out the different factions but the basing and palette should tie them together as a collection.

Without further ado/ rambling here is the finished Faerie Emissary:

I'm very much looking forward to future releases from precinctomega studios. Especially figures in this style.

thoughts?

If you're going to use him in a game of Skrapyard (and I know you have a rulebook) then you'll need to the mark up the base with front and rear arcs.

I like how he's got a sort of autumn hunting regalia look to him. I'm now minded to paint one up in traditional foxhunting garb.
