Terminator Minatures Game - John Connor and Lt

Before taking a break from Terminator to work on some things for Lord Of The Rings I wanted to finish up the troops for the future war and this meant working on the top man himself, John Connor (and his Lt who is a generic character for the game but can be used to lead the LA assault against Skynet, a scenario from the rule book).

As usual for character miniatures I tried to put a bit more into them then the standard soldiers, particularly in John Connors case.  So with the joys of modern technology I pulled up a shot of him from the film on my phone and did my best to replicate the scarring on his face.  This is the resin version of the miniature and again is was a real joy to paint, lots of crisp detail.

The Lt miniature is a metal cast and lacks the crispness of the Connor miniature but still looks okay when put against the rest of the range.  I did struggle with his face somewhat as it was very rounded so I had to paint the facial features on him but in the end I think he turned out alright.

I still have quite a bit of Terminator stuff to work on (the 1984 set, quite a few versions of Arnie and then the big walker) but with the arrival of my Gundabad Orc army from the painter I'm going to work on their bases and unit bases before moving on to my Fallen Dwarves.
