Lead Adventure Forum figure

“Hi Everyone.
When the Prof passed LAF to me, one of my first thoughts was to do a special miniature that would only be available to members.

I work with Mark Copplestone, one of this forums favourite designers, so I spoke to him about it and he was keen to do it. We thought something with a Pulp theme would suit LAF, and so we are proud to present the International Adventurer!


Nick Eyre of Northstar Miniatures”

As a member of the LAF forum I got myself the miniature too. In truth I got more then one ­čśë I converted one of the figures to be useable in a Scifi setting ( e.g. Warhammer40000) the other was left as it was . ┬áHave a look for the greenstuff and bits conversion here.

The pictures of the unconverted painted figure:

The figure for Warhammer 40000:

The two next to each other:


The SCIFI figure will be used as a leader of a renegade unit in the Warhammer 40000 universe.

Gruppe Karl of the 2nd Gefechtskompanie Galactic Knights Space Marine Chapter

Here is the Komtur of the 3rd Gruppe 2nd Gefechtskompanie of the Galactic Knights Space marine Chapter. Komtur Karl is a former member of the Elite first Gefechtskompanie also known as “Mondkrieger” ( Moonwarriors) , therefor he wears the icon of the Mondkrieger on his left knee. A blue moon with the name Mondkrieger above in red. On the right knee he wears the Gruppe sign of the 3rd Gruppe a red chapter cross.


Here is the icon of the Mondkrieger a bit bigger :


The icon on the figure is a decal I made with decal paper and a printer. As I do all my decals.

Here are some more pictures of Karl:

The black helmet also denotes him as a member of the first Gefechtskompanie. All members of the first Kompanie wear black helmets instead of white ones to denote their elite status. So as a former member and a Komtur he has a black helmet with a red stripe denoting his rank.

Next up some more members of the 3rd Gruppe.
