Aertes is the son of Elsinore's renowned field surgeon, Dr. Polo. The youth often feels sidelined by his father's important work and has enrolled in the Junior Infantry in a desperate bid for his father's attention. Aertes will likely go quite far in the Junior Infantry (and eventually the Elsinore Light Infantry) regardless of whether Dr. Polo notices or not.

28mm is a sci fi parody comic about the brave troops stationed on the remote ocean world of Thalassia Prime. The series is primarily an excuse to show off models and custom terrain while making really bad jokes.

He's probably destined for great things.

Somehow I get the feeling that Dr. Polio is rather hard to please in this department...

Dr. Polo is more concerned with decoding the mutagenic necrovirus than keeping up with his boy.

His dad wouldn't even turn around :( Jerk. I like the detailing on his little hood, belt buckle and medal!

Thank you! He was a lot of fun to paint (I actually have a second version painted up with a different style base).

I'm glad you picked up on Polo not even bothering to look away from his work.

Aertes is easy to sympathize with.

So... what game uses Boyscouts as a faction?
KidCthulhu 5th Apr 2021, 2:37 PM edit delete reply
KidCthulhu
They're not Boy Scouts, they're Planetary Coalition Junior Infantry.

Actually, Reaper Miniatures makes a whole line of modern miniatures for whatever you might need them for. I originally bought him to use as part of my juvenile zombie-fighting crew for 7TV. But that game fell through...

Makes sense. I didn't know Kenny was a Reaper product!

Kenny is "Parker" from Hasslefree Miniatures. I like a lot of different companies ^_^
