Submarine Safari...continued


The Tiger Miniatures ex-HLBS hard hat divers arrived in the post yesterday and very nice they are too. They're about the same size as Copplestone 28mm figures but a little on the slim side and perhaps less well sculpted. However, as the only show in town, they're more than acceptable and will paint up very quickly. I have three packs, one with tools, one with knives or harpoons and one with spearguns, so there is no shortage of potential prehistoric fish food.

I've put out feelers at the club via the website to see if anyone would be up for a game of Submarine Safari some time in the Autumn. Thus far I have one player interested so it looks like a feasible project, give or take a little encouragement to get a couple more signed up. As a result, I've decided to start hunting for suitable beasties to use in the game, with a rather scary looking plastic Dukleosteous as the first addition to the underwater menagerie.

I'll have a crack at painting up the divers when I get a spare hour or so in the next few days but, as things are a bit busy at the moment, I might have to wait a while before I get to put paint to lead.

  1. Maybe you need a little afloat support to keep things interesting:
