Pictures

Leader. This guy came without a tab for the base. As his pose is also a rather tiptoe one, I attached a 2mm wire to the base and drilled a hole for it under the skirt. The first squad of Firstborn is done! These are the venerable swordsmen. I decided against the official checkered color scheme and used red with white piping instead. The pose is pretty much the same as one of the swordsmen.
A delightfully commissar-like character. I was really disappointed with this mini. The game artwork shows a Repulsar Knight jumping into the middle of a horde of enemies - I was expecting a far more dynamic pose. Switched the polearm position slightly to make it even a little bit interesting. The gloves were a bit troublesome - they seem to be part armor, part cloth or leather. Why a troop of less than ten warriors need their own flag is beyond me, though...

More pictures of these figures.

Notes

I actually have a Chronomancer painted I couldn't squeeze into this list.

I bought a huge pile of Chronopia figures from a sale a few years back, but didn't really get around to painting them before this. I still have plenty left, but as I didn't really intend to play Chronopia with them when I bought them, I'm missing the required leader figures for many unit types. In game terms, the large squads are rather inefficient, because they are very hard to fit within the command radius of the leader.

I'll probably add some Black Sisters next.

This list is missing missile troops mostly because I think the Firstborn archer and crossbowman figures just looked horrible and therefore I never bought any.
