Ork Death Skull (100 posts for 2013)

So with today's post I break the 100th post barrier for 2013, quite an achievement considering I spent the whole summer and autumn away in Poland.
Anyhow todays offering is an old Rogue Trader era Death Skull Ork, painted in my usual brown skin and orange clothing colors.

Future Police

Some additions to my future police force, the woman comes from EM4, while the four men are from Akula's rather spiffing Galactic Warriors range which I think are supposed to represent House Atreides troops from the Dune movie.

Conscript Squad Complete (part 10)

The full unit of 20 conscripts, I think I will add more to this unit as time goes on.

I hope everyone had a happy Christmas :)

Goliath Gangers (Conscripts part 9)

Finally made it to 20 members of my Conscript's squad with these rather nasty old plastic miniatures from the Necromunda base game....Still...now I want to paint up another 30...damn.

Frothers Suit

This was one of a 3 set based on Charlie's Angels, produced for charity back in 2010 on the Frothers Unite message boards. Its taken me quite a while to get around to painting her.

Eschers...again (Conscripts Part 8)

1 more to go and Im finished with the Escher...

Extra Large Skip

Huge bendy plastic skip container that came with a cheap plastic truck, the truck is to big to use, but I blasted a few coats of red paint on the skip, and hey presto, some cheap terrain.

Yet More Escher Gangers (Conscripts Part 7)

Almost reached 20...almost. Think I need a few different models though, the majority are Escher girls. Still cant wait to get a group shot of the lot once complete.

Escher Gangers (Conscripts Part 6)

Yet more raw troops for the machine that is the Guard, though these ones have been "caught" recently and still have thier gang hair dye in place :p

StarWars Droid AAT

 A Revell "easykit" Trade Federation AAT I found in Home Bargains for £6.99. It came pre painted, but was a bit of a pain to fit together.
Still, sizes up pretty well with 28mm figures, which is good.

Orlock Gangers (Conscript Squad Part 5)

Two more unfortunates forced to fight for the Albion 13th. If they are lucky, perhaps one day they will receive flak armor....maybe not.

Raider Buggy

I picked up 3 dune buggy's at Smoggycon, no idea who made them, but managed to get one of them painted up.

Police Cargo-6

 I picked up one of these cargo transporters from Aintsy Castings at Smoggycon the other week, I thought for a while on how to paint, and then decided to paint it in the colors of my police force.

Escher and Orlock Ganger's (Imperial Guard Conscripts Part 4)

Two more conscripts for the Albion 13th, so that's five down, fifteen to go!

Judge Minty (Frothers Charity Mini 2012)

Last years Frothers forum charity miniature, cast in resin and sculpted to look like the actor Edmund Dehn, who played Minty in the recent fan film which you can find here.

Fantasy Monsters

I got around to painting up some more monsters for HeroQuest, some Beastmen from the old Warhammer Quest (I think) board game, and a Goblin from BattleMasters. Nice little additions all in all.

HeroQuest 25th Anniversary on Kickstarter.

I got the shock of my life yesterday when I saw this. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2113976860/heroquest-25th-anniversary , they have only been going two days and already have $426,601 (CAD), a hell of a lot more than the $58,000 they needed. Its going to be a long year waiting for this.

Aintsy Casting Terrain

I had intended to pick up more terrain from Aintsy Casting at Smoggycon on Saturday, but for some reason (tiredness, bedazzlement,or just the dingy orange lights) I only came away with two pieces of terrain and a future apc thing (though Ive ran out of glue for that...). After painting these two, Im going to get more in the future.

Princess Viktoria

Bit of a change for me, first in a large force of Hinterland Miniatures all female Hussars, led by Princess Viktoria-Luise. I have about another 30 or so of these girls to paint up, though as they are more 25mm than 28 and with some real fine detail, I think Im going to be getting sick of them before long argh!

Hammer Girl

Another lovely little Hasslefree figure (that loses her face once paint is applied). Based off Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim.

Goliath Ganger (Conscripts Part 3)

Yet another poor unfortunate ganger pressed into service with the Imperial Guard.

Thursday, 21 November 2013


The other day I wandered into the works canteen, and sat on top of the water boiler was this plastic toy bear, so I brought it home and gave it a good lick of paint. No idea who makes it, or what toy range it comes from, but its a nice little sculpt and seems to size up quite nicely with 28mm mini's.

Chaos Cultist

Finished the last of the cultists, now I just wish I had one of the leaders and a heavy.

Last Chancer Heavy Bolter

Ox form the old Last Chancers set.

Tactical Squad

Another squad of Space Marines, using the newer plastic kit, pity they didn't include parts to make more earlier marks of power armor like Mk4 or Mk5..Oh well.

Wednesday, 13 November 2013


Possibly the best value for money GW do at the minute, 5 miniatures (yes I know there are only 4 here) for £6. Nice sculpts and useful for Necromunda or any kind of Fallout game.

Random Fantasy Chaps.

Got around to finishing off a few more fantasy minis, a Battlemasters Orc and Chaos Warrior, but I have no idea where the axe Orc comes from.

Colonel 'Iron Hand' Straken

Always liked this miniature, and think it looks better than the newer version. Dont think he will be making an appearance in my army though, as the HQ slots are taken up by Creed and Yarrick.

Talarn Trooper

This chap has been in a half painted state for about a year and a half, now finally finished.

Saturday, 2 November 2013

Imperial Guard Mortar Team.

Utilizing old bits and bobs is good fun.

Friday, 1 November 2013

Mechwarrior Mech

Rebased Mechwarrior machine, this thing towers over 28mm miniatures, would probably make a good Titan for Epic.

Cawdor Ganger (Conscripts Part 2)

October has been a month of little to no painting what with working away in Poland throughout the summer and autumn, however work out there is finished and I've been back in the UK for a week so figured it was past time I stuck into some of the many mini's I've acquired these last few months.

I started with this Cawdor ganger, a new recruit to the Albion 13th Civilian militia conscript force. Still to come, Escher, Goliath and Orlock gangers.
