Tomorrow's War - Today

So things have been very quiet on the wargames front. I have been unwell, working hard, and travelling.

But I got back to the office today, and waiting for me were the vehicles to go with my Tomorrow's War forces. So far I have 21 Rebel Minis Earth Marines - which are becoming my New Alba forces, and I have now got three Khurusan Miniatures APC plus three Critical Mass Arc Fleet Grav Tanks.

Now both are lovely models, but I am not sure they work together. The Khurusan Minis are absolutely lovely mixed resin/metal castings, a touch of 'Aliens' - and gritty near future. So the castings have lots of rivets and panels, periscopes and so on. The Arc Fleet is much more 'Futuristic'  also lovely castings but much less gritty - more 'Halo' - so I think I may have two basic armies here. the New Alba are maybe 22 Century, while the Khurusan are much more - next 50 years..  in which case they will have to end up dark green/black and partnered with some 'Colonial Marines' - so I guess I am looking now for some more 'futuristic' APCs to cart my fireteams about.

Pictures to follow when I have applied more paint than a basic black undercoat....
