Not too much time dedicated to painting anything this week, but I did manage to get the vehicles from the Bobbybox done. These were all from Warpath, and included an old school Orx Raptor trike and three new-school (is that even an expression?) Veermyn Tunnel Runner monowheel-things. While I was at it, I decided to […]Read More Bobbybox pt 13: The Vehicles (and another one)
The time has come for the Warpath Orx Marauder Command figures, and the Kings of War Goblin Spitters. There were two sprues of the old Marauder Orx Command, each with parts to make two miniatures plus extras for the bits box. When Mantic first was set up, they had a clear made-for-Warhammer-but-much-cheaper-to-buy profile. The Mantic minis […]Read More Bobbybox pt 12: The Warpath Orx, and KoW Goblin Spitters
Powering on with the Bobbybox, we come to the DeadZone Marauders. I got 5 Orx Commandos and 2 Goblin snipers. In the Warpath universe shared by the DeadZone game, the Marauders are green-skinned, brutish-looking aliens that are highly disciplined militaristic mercenaries that function both as shock troops for corporations and also follow their own agenda. A […]Read More Bobbybox pt 11: The DeadZone Marauders
Easter and a day or two off from work and all that. At last some time to get some serious painting in. We continue the Bobbybox saga with some Deadzone Rebs minis. In the bobbybox there were 4 little bags of Rebs minis, totalling 10 minis in two sets of 5 identical pairs. As […]Read More Bobbybox pt 10: The DeadZone Rebs
I have spent a couple weeks without painting much. Time to continue chipping away at the Bobbybox. Now we come to the The Mars Attacks! Martians. My eyesight is not what it once was, and I found I struggled mightly with the smaller details such as eyes on these. In the end I gave up […]Read More Bobbybox part 9: The Mars Attacks! Martians
I happen to have some more Plague models in the Mountains of Minis that I would like to add to the new plague force I have started with the bobbybox minis. I think I will have a sidequest going for a while to get them done along side the bobbybox main quest. Ahem. The Plague […]Read More Sidequest: The Plague. Terrorton!
A change of pace today. Since doing the Bobbybox plague minis, I have been rummaging a bit through the boxes of Deadzone minis, and I have dug up some old fossils… The imposing 1st generation plague victim. What happens is that the first person to get infected by the Plague in a given cycle, turns into […]Read More And now for something slightly different
The Plague. A virus-like alien condition that invades and takes charge of an unsuspecting host, causing growth to parts of the body, thereby changing said host to make it much stronger than before. The earlier one gets infected, the more alien and changed one becomes. The first and second generation are massive hulking beasts with […]Read More Bobbybox, pt V: The Plague
Today has been a day full of Star Wars Battlefront 2. I really am not too fond of the infantry part of the game, which seems to consist of alot of waiting for it to start, then running forever to reach the battle arena, just to get murdered as soon as you close in on […]Read More Bobbybox pt 4: The Plague Doggies and WIP
The first four minis of the crazy box finished! Hoody Hoo! I have been a busy bee and undercoated all of the minis. So now the table is set for getting down to some serious painting! Starting with some easy peasy Cylons DeadZone Asterian Cyphers: from this: to this: The Cypher with a hand […]Read More Bobbybox pt 3: The First Four: Refbot and Asterians
Every year, Mantic games does a so-called “crazy box” which basically is a mystery box of “random” miniatures -older miniatures that are not selling very well and that clutter up their warehouse- at presumably a steep discount if one were to calculate the retail prices of the contents. This year, Mantic offer up their normal […]Read More The Punishment Due: Crazy Bobby’s Craaazzy Bonanza Box of Craziness!!!!
About a year ago, I bought a set of Mantic old convert-your-own sci fi zombies off ebay, and combined with the plague zombie sprues I got from the deadzone kickstarter I spent a day building a ton of them. They have been cluttering up my to do-shelf ever since, only being nickled-and-dimed in small groups, getting […]Read More Space Hurps done for now
