Across the Dead Earth: Sisters of Acquisition

The Sisters of Acquisition are another of the gangs from the Across the Dead Earth rulebook (a post-apocalypse skirmish game set in Britain).  The miniatures are from the publishers (Dead Earth Games).  These are by a different sculptor than their other gangs and are unfortunately out of scale to their other releases.  They are so thin that to my eyes there is little sculpted detail, and I felt like I was painting most of the detail on myself.

Despite their drawbacks, I painted them in early 2015.  They may no longer be available and are not on the Dead Earth storefront.  Thankfully their other releases have been of much higher quality!

The whole gang.  From left to right, Lady Cara (Scout), Sister Sledgehammer (Assault/Scrapper), Bloody Mary (Leader), Penny (Medic) & One-Eyed Susan (Sharpshooter).  The knife in Penny's right hand broke off while I was removing flash/mold lines, so I made a new, larger one out of green stuff.  Lady Cara resembles a certain tomb raider.  You can click on the pictures for a closer look.
