Painting Competition from Warlord

Competition: Hansa Nairoba Painting Challenge

Taking a momentary break from playtesting Beyond the Gates of Antares, his forthcoming science-fiction game, Rick Priestley came up with a great idea: the Hansa Nairoba Painting Challenge. Rick explains:
Below you can see our Hansa model – Hansa Nairoba painted by Golem Painting Studio. I plan to tell you a bit more about our Hansa Nairoba character soon, and it would be great if we could feature more models painted by you – doesn’t matter what style – it’d be really interesting to see how many different interpretations we can come up with. I have my own Hansa – my paint jobs can’t really compete with ace painters like our own André Amián or Golem Painting Studio  – and it would interesting to see just how many interpretations we can come up with.
So – if you have a photo of your painted Hansa that you would be willing to share please post pics of your creation on our forums here. I’ll sort through and pick out a varied selection to show – and we’ll get the Warlord guys to pick out a favourite too. If we pick your model as our favourite we’ll include it in our beta rulebook as well.

Hansa Nairoba of the Freeborn is a notorious Mercenary Commander and Adventurer – the best in all of Determinate space in the opinion of many CoCom Agents. Hansa himself would certainly agree with them: sometime gunrunner, revolutionary leader, military commander, trader in the esoteric and dealer in secrets, his reputation alone is worth a battalion of assault troopers.
Ever prepared for a fight, Hansa carries a light compression carbine – a deadly if notoriously demanding weapon – together with a hefty plasma pistol for when the fighting gets up close and personal. The cylindrical packs attached to his battle armour carry slinger grenades: tiny, powerful explosive charges that can be set or hurled as required. The armoured panels on Hansa’s suit are fitted with Concord manufactured hyper-light shield generators powerful enough to deflect practically any missile.
In addition to the regular metal Hansa model we have also made Hansa available in grey resin as shown below offering you a choice of how you can purchase this superb miniature.
