Colonel Marbles

A Frothers Unite! miniature, the eccentric colonel in all his waste coat glory.

A nicely sculpted figure if a little on the short side, there was some casting damage to his left hip (right in the photo) which had to be filled in with green stuff, this resulted in him having a slightly smaller hip.

Im really pleased with the way the face and skin colours came out, but I need to work on my eyes and maybe spend some more time on his trousers.

Huron Blackheart

Huron from the 40K Chaos range. I painted him to fit in with the Slaanesh themed army I was creating (I need to get back to it at some point). It took me a week and a half to paint him up in time for a competition at the local GW store. He didn't get very far, I guess the judge didn't like pink.

Hasslefree Zombie Hunters and Zombies

Hasslefree Miniatures produce some amazing figures, and whats even more amazing they do it all out of their own home, a real Husband and Wife (with help from the kids) business. They have a large figure range for a number of settings, but the biggest is the zombie hunting line.
Here we have Suzi the Japanese schoolgirl armed with a Mac10, Ashley Campbell with her trusty chainsaw and finally Ray with a cricket bat and sawn off shotgun (He looks remarkably like Shawn of the Dead). Off course it doesn't look like these weapons did them much good as they all seem to have zombie counterparts.
The sculpting of these miniatures is first rate with plenty of detail. I painted them with a mix of Games Workshop and Coat d'arms paints.
These any many more like them can be found at

First Post

Welcome to my first post in my first ever blog. Ive been painting miniatures for various games for a few years now and figured I really should find a way to get them displayed rather than just collecting dust on a shelf somewhere.

Hopefully I can keep this thing updated for a while before I lose intreast completely :P

Cheers, Flip.
