Slow going

Yet another week of not much hobby time.

The first wave of Dreadball Extreme has arrived!

I must say I am impressed by the quantum leap they have managed with the restic minis!

Very little flash of mold lines and what was there was easy to carve off. Still can’t scrape though.
Only figure with any amount of mold lines was the plant.thing, which really was not that bad either.

Details were sharp and crisp figures were good looking and cleaning the close to 50 minis I got was done in an hour or so! Only got 24 bases with the shipment though.

Here’s to hoping they can keep this level of quality in all things in the future.

Even the scenery bits went together without any glue, and had absolutely no flash to clean off at all!


Apart from that, I finished up a few models:

a Mantic Werewolf in a slightly different colour scheme…



141220 werewolf D141220 werewolf E

and a couple more in more boring conventional colours.


141220 plague gen 2 b 141220 plague gen 2 c

And the last two second generation plague warriors (or whatever they are called) from Deadzone. Just the big first gen to go, then I have a fighting force.

At any rate, these were all rather quick to do.

more off the shelf, and a pair of unknowns

141207 Chaos Dwarf foran141207 Chaos Dwarf bak

An ancient Warhammer Chaos Dwarf  from the time Chaos Dwarfs had a lot of individual character and were not identical sumerian curlybeards.


141207 Chaos marine

Test paint scheme for my Warhammer 40k Dark Venegance Chaos Marines. Yup, got that set when it was new, been lying around ever since. The Dark Vengeance-miniatures are really characterful. Looking forward to tackle that Chaos Dreadnought.


141207 plague gen 2 141207 plague gen 2b

The test figure for the Deadzone Plague generation 2s. Another fast paint job.





141207 wossit

I found a box of old metal minis in the attic the other day, and amongst a lot of old Warmaster minis (up on Ebay at the time of writing) i found this ugly thing, I do not know what it is. I am thinking “FASA” or some other american company that tried to make warhammer 40k -type games in the 90s. It had a tab for slotted base.

At any rate, I gave it a simple enough paint job.


141207 emile

I call this one Emile.

I so not know what this is supposed to represent, but I think it is a Shadowrun mini from Ral Partha. There are modern-style items in the sludge, such as a keyboard, cannisters and hat.
