As we all know, the far future is not a nice place. In our own twisted time-to-come, "FuturKom" is the dystopian future society that mirrors the former Soviet empire of our own time. Strangely, so many people (myself included) are quite taken with the notion of a future empire that reflects the former USSR... do we all conveniently forget that the real USSR only lasted 70 years or so before collapsing under its own weight? In any event, the future world of "50-Year Plans" and "Socialist Workers' Paradises" has to be defended, and the FuturKom Socialist Army of Workers and Space Peasants fulfills that important role.
So that's the strike force, but while I had the models out to photograph I couldn't help but snap a few shots of the rest of the FuturKom army I've accumulated. Here they are...
|Kom-bot converted from a WotC Star Wars Miniature Battles walker.|
|The T-640 heavy tank - a converted 1/35 T-64 with lots of added goodness including an unfeasibly-large main gun.|
|The one that started it all - the SU-300 assault gun. Converted from a toy-scale Russian diecast.|
|Another shot of the T-640.|
|Captured Gunschwarm prisoners... now "re-educated" and ready to sacrifice themselves for the glorious cause of Kommulism ;-)|
