Worms: Part 1

Yes, I know I said I was going to be working on the Gruntz force but I sat there looking at the vehicles and they just didn't 'speak' to me at the time, I needed something else to paint instead...

So, digging through the lead mountain I came across several packs of worms figures I bought on a whim from MJ Figures, at Reveille in Bristol, last year. Now over 6 months seemed a long time to be sitting around so I decided to open them and apply some paint to them

Worms was a turn based computer game that was released in 1995(!) and revolved around teams of the critters armed with various different weapons attempting to eliminate one another over a computer landscape. It spawned several sequels and there is a new version due out this year (2012)

For rules, I found a boardgame that someone created on Boardgame Geek. I plan on replacing the counters with the figures and giving it a try once I have everything painted

The figures themself are roughly 20mm tall, although how you measure the height on a worm is tricky to say the least. Here are the first figures painted, some standard worm troopers, a couple of horror based ones plus some additional things (including the dreaded homing sheep!)
