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
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
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!!!!
One of the more interesting items from the Mars Attacks! kickstarter is the burning cattle token that got upgraded to a mini. “Burning cattle” as in a herd of stampeding cows on fire. Yes, on fire as if they were hit with a heat ray, setting the subcuteous fat alight. Oh those Martians are utterly evil. […]Read More Flaming Cows!

After painting the Agarix mushroom men recently, I have been thinking which minis I have that might fit a Mario-theme. There are some…and will be revealed as I get to painting them. Starting with: What Mario-themed set of minis would be complete without the Plumber himself? This used to be Joe the Mechanic […]Read More Mars Attacks!: It’s a-Me, Mario!
After I moved house last year, a whole lot of prepped and ready to go minis have been stashed away in my drawers of more recent minis. Several kickstarters worth plus change actually… So, being as flighty as I am, I have picked some that took my fancy for painting this minivember. We start with a […]Read More Mars Attacks!: a boy and his dog-thing
Finished a second squad of the Mars Attacks! Martian Grunts. Some of the helmets are a bit wonky in the picture, as they are not glued down yet. I use thinned PVA for this, because it sets transparent, and can be removed with ease if the need arises. Martian Grunts Mars Attacks! the […]Read More Ack Ack Ack Ack (again)
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.
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!

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!
