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
One of the metal specialist or hero-types delivered in the second wave of the kickstarter rewards. The Dugs Sorak are the aliens that use their upper arms for legs, and have a lower set of more delicate arms for most other tasks. This one has rather large pair of cleaver-like swords. So I tried to […]Read More Deadzone Rebs Sorak Swordmaster
The second blob of minis off the shelf today is 12 more of the Mantic Sci Fi Zombie Space Hurps conversions: I really, really need to look into better photography. At any rate, that makes 43 of those zombies done in all. 15-20 or so to go. I must admit they are getting a bit […]Read More Space Hurps part the fifth.
A few weeks ago I painted a squad of 10 Mars Attacks! Martian Grunts. Or so I thought. Turned out 7 of them were Martian Marines, and not Grunts at all. (In my defense, they are very similar, with the difference being that Marines have shoulder pads. So I have at last finished the remaining […]Read More Fixing the little Mars Attacks! mixup, and more Zombies.
So I spent a couple hours on these space zombies today, all the painting time I have had in about a fortnight. 10 more means that 31 or so are done. And bonus: Mike Wazowski, a Reaper Bones 2 “Hordling”, some sort of minor demon. Very minor. That base is 20mm.Read More Space Hurps part three
So for April, I have been thinking about what to do for my resolutionary challenge. First, I need to prep a lot of the new minis that have arrived, such as the second Bones kickstarter shipment. I also have the second wave of DreadBall Xtreme and the first wave of DUST totally untouched as of yet. Second. […]Read More April!
For March I am still doing squads, this one is from Mars Attacks, a squad of Martian grunts. 9 new ones, 1 finished previously. I have not bothered with slicing off the mould lines on these. The results are actually acceptable anyhow. 25 mm integral bases. Softish PVC material. Bonus round 5! Deadzone Mercenary: Freya, […]Read More Mars Attacks!
So February’s challenge was met and surpassed by several bonus minis painted. Hoody Hoo! I managed to keep on track for this, even when being so flighty as I am. Seems to be a recipe to get something done. For March I think I want to do something about squads, teams or units. As in squads I have […]Read More My Resolutionary Challenge for March
Still on target for February: 9. Mars Attacks: Mantic Mars Attacks Martian Grunt This is the test piece for the paint job. The colour scheme turned out to be quite quick and easy (thank god for that!) This mini is one piece PVC slightly soft plastic (a bit like Bones, but stiffer), I have actually not had […]Read More Febuary Painting Resolution, chapters 9-10, plus bonus figures!
So the new years resolutions are as follows: 1. Not to buy any miniatures (ebay or otherwise) apart from kickstarters unless said miniatures are funded by my own ebay sales. So far, so good. Have bought the one box of the old mantic space zombies conversion set and today I received a set of Wargames Factory […]Read More Space Hurps and the Resolutionary Painting Challenge; January!
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 […]Read More Slow going
An ancient Warhammer Chaos Dwarf from the time Chaos Dwarfs had a lot of individual character and were not identical sumerian curlybeards. 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 […]Read More more off the shelf, and a pair of unknowns
