USS Enterprise (Running Press)

 I found this on Amazon, though WHSmiths also sell them. The original series USS Enterprise, it comes prepainted with all markings applied. its a lovely well detailed kit for its size. On top of all the saucer section lights up.
The Running Press Enterprise alongside the Futura refit Enterprise. I should point out that this kit costs £5.59 from, though some crafty buggers are trying to sell them on ebay as an exclusive from the Eaglemoss Star Trek magazine, with prices upwards of £20!

Revell Star Destroyer

I managed to pick up one of the 1:12300 scale Pocket Models. It was a piece of cake to fit this together, a quick wash of black wash and then a dry brush of grey was enough to have it ready to join the rest of the fleet. However the Revell kit dwarfs the De Agostini Destroyer, guess I have found my flagship.

Major Motoko Kusanagi

I am a big fan of Ghost in the Shell, having read both manga series, devoured both major movies, both Stand Alone Complex series and films, and not to mention tired my hand at both the PS1 and PS2 games that came out. So I knew I had to get around to painting up the not-Major from Hasslefree sooner or later. Enjoy :)

Micro Machines Star Destroyer

 As most people know, Micro Machines released a number of play sets for both Star Wars and Star Trek in the 90's, though as was the case for all Micro Machine toys, matching scales wasn't a high priority. They pop up on eBay from time to time, though it seems its getting harder and harder to buy Star Destroyers.

This miniature, while nice seems to be showing its age, most of the sharp edges have been rounded down and scuffed, while the bridge section looks like it has been pulled off and glued back on in a rather haphazard way.
The Micro Machines Star Destroyer alongside the De Agostini Star Destroyer, I guess the smaller vessel would be classed as a cruiser?

The Mighty Zug

An old Blood Bowl figure I found in a second hand store. Painted him up in the colors of the local football team.

Fantasy Undead

Been awhile since I did any fantasy miniatures, figured I should tackle the growing pile for my HeroQuest project. Anyhow, the skeleton is from GW's metal Tomb Kings range and fairly certain you cant get it anymore. I have no idea where the mummy is from, any suggestions, let me know below.
