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 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!
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
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
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!
As previously stated, my resolution for March is to complete at least 4 10-man squads, or equivalent. I have been a bit under the weather this week, and so have not done as much as I had hoped. Plus, Bones 2 has arrived! Not to easy to concentrate on boring old hat when all the […]Read More March resolution: the second installment
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!
