C is for Chuhuac


   The brainchild of a friend of mine, Eli Arndt, the Chuhuac are the first release from his boutique minis company, Loud Ninja Games. Chuhuac are high tech raptors on the newer 'semi-avian' model. The Chuhuac project was an ambitious one, and it took longer than expected (what minis project doesn't?). However, it looks as if most of the people who got in on the Kickstarter that Eli used to finance the project are happy with what they have received. They are also now available for sale at (Yes, I am plugging them for a friend, but they are really cool).

   One of the things that Eli did that I liked was he tried very hard to do a pretty somprehensive rollout of the figures. That was part of the reason for the Kickstarter. Instead of just offering one or two packs of infantry, he commissioned infantry, special weapons, power armor, APCs and jet bike cavalry, plus leaders, etc., all at one go. So instead of waiting for anything, you can just pick up a pretty complete basic force right away. This is a big plus, and a move that I hope more game companies will move towards.

   So, on to the eye candy. None of these images are mine (haven't got any painted up yet).

Eli, I gotta get some of these ordered once I get a few minutes and a few bucks together. You are single handedly responsible for my getting interested in 15mm sci-fi. When my wife leaves me, I am moving in with you guys.

Alright. We'll have to make room in the game room for you to sleep, but I'm sure we can make space.

You can't minis and build terrain for room and board.
