Close Combat Squad

Another squad for one of my plattoons, nothing really special here, used some of the last parts to my command set, and used only bayonet weapons. No heavy weapon this time, and in the back you can just make out the RT trooper from my last update.

More Guardsmen

I painted up the last of my Tanith Guardsmen, though I cant finish the squad as I seem to have lost Guants power sword and Rocket Girl's (from the Last Chancer's) rocket launcher....

I also finished up a plasma gunner (pity the Guard cant take Plasma cannons) and an old Rogue Trader trooper Ive had for a few years.

Regimental Advisor's : BodyGuards

It took me a while to get these two painted up. I seem to have lost all painting momentum, though Im still happily building new Guardsmen (Ive actually began to run out of arms...) and have two new squads ready for paint...tho I still have half the Tanith to paint up...urgh...

On lighter news I hit the big three zero on thursday, Im no longer a twenty something, dear God, Im getting closer to being middle aged...

Regimental Advisor's

I love these miniatures, they have to be the best sculpt's in the new IG line, though it really get's on my nerve that the brick and mortar stores will only sell them to you if you use thier online ordering system...what's the point in that?

Anyhow I only have two bodyguards to paint up and that's my command squad fully finished...unless I add a Techpreist and some Servitor's...hmmmm..

Mortar Teams Complete

Only took me a few month's but I finally got the Albion 13th's first complete mortar squad ready for action. I think in future I'll build these guys all seperate and paint them up before adding them to a base.

Iron Snakes Squad

I picked up a 5 man squad the other week and decided to have a go at a small Space Marine force. I've never been one for the garish red, blues or greens of some of the "big name" chapters, but when reading through a few pages I found the Iron Snakes, well a paint scheme so easy, I had to give it a shot.

Gunnery Sergeant Harker

Another miniature stripped down and repainted. The first time I painted him was for the Bell of Lost Souls Macharian Crusade source book, he even appears on a page.

Anyhow, I decided to dig him out the other day when I was reading through the IG Codex and decided to take another special character (my second of three).

Of course after finishing him, I discover GW have released an official Harker model (along with a new Stracken).

Mortar Team

I figured it was time to start back on with my Imperial Guard, so here is my first addition in months.

I built 6 heavy weapon teams in a rush with my dad a while ago, but neither of us could be bothered to take all the mold lines or flash off...

Mean Machine Angel

One of Judge Dread's old Cursed Earth foes. I think this rather hefty chunk of metal is produced by Foundry, cant be sure tho as I got him for cheap of a guy at the LAF forums .

Had him painted in roughly two hours and based the next day. Think I'll use him as part of my sci-fi salvager crew.

Hot Cop

Black Scorpions Wasteland Cop girl. Not sure if shes supposed to be a real police officer, or a good time girl in fancy dress.

Reaper Harlot

An old Reaper mini I have had sat on my desk for some time. Finally gave her a lick of paint.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Hasslfree Dionne with trenchcoat, an EM-4 Corporate guard, and the Heresy Inspectors, all painted up like Marvels S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents, or should that be H.A.M.M.E.R. now?

Been painintg like crazy lately, just havent been taking many photos...

CyberPunk Heroine

An old I-Kore Void mini I found in the loft, give a clean down, but she snapped off her base (she was in flight originally) glued her back in this matrix style pose.

Werner Klocke's Army Brat

One of only 300 CMON Miniatures that sold out on pre-order. I've been a little afraid to even think about painting this mini, but I decided to take the plunge and am really happy with the results.

Olaf the Wasteland Wrestler

Picked this guty up from the OrcsNest store in London back in 2007 (Same day i went to see Gwen Stefani at Wembley) Ive not got much use for fantasy miniatures, but for an old wrestler struggling to survive in the wasteland?
Anyone else think he looks like Mickey Rourke? Finished in 5 hours.

Robot Jack the Ripper and SWAT Member

Just a quick update of what I had laying around on my desk. The Jack figure is from Ramshackle Games and is part of thier cheap resin range The Society of Intrepid Explorers. A nice quick mini to paint.
What wasnt nice to paint was the Heroclix SWAT member, a hideous sculpt...guh.

Matt Hazard

Ramshackle Games produce some bizarre miniatures but some great looking trucks and stuff. Anyhow, this guy fits as a mechanic in some wasteland, maybe as a controller for the war droid?
Painted in around 3 hours (Though it actually was painted over 2 days)

Deunan Knute and Briareos Hecatonchires.

Deunan and Briareos (Deunan is the one on the shoulder) from Appleseed and probably the best miniature GZG have, Im now tempted to buy the seperate mini's. I tried to stay as close to the colours of the cover for the first manga addition I have sat in my loft.

War Droid

I made an order with Ground Zero Games, and I think Ive learned my lesson to never buy from a site that doesnt display pictures. Of all the stuff I bought only two things where useable, one of them was this "Land Mate". Now when I think of Land Mates, I think of the manga AppleSeed and the mecha within that. like so...


The Tower of Paint

Just one of the many dumb things I do when Im on the phone.

Trixie off a free promo miniature for thier Nuclear Renaissance game setting. The miniature itself is a lovely sculpt, but due to it being a freebie they used cheap resin, as a result it had a lot of trapped air within it when it was cast, I didnt relise the extent of the damage until I began painting her. Her nose is missing... still for free its hard to complain.

Vostroyan Squad with Commisar

Another squad I had painted up in one of my boxes, re based them all to fit my current army, but decided against stripping them.
The Commissar is an old Valhallan model I bought off eBay already painted way back in 2005.

StormTroopers Finally Finished.

Only took a month or so.....

Talarn Squad

My desert raiders, I won these fellas during GW's White Dwarf 30th birthday party. I then painted them up and entered them in a painting competition in 2008 and came 3rd, as a result, Ive decided to not strip them and field them as is.

Pépée F. Space Marine/Ranger

A limited edition resin mini from Maow Miniatures, (045/200) I think they are a french company but I'm not sure.
This is the first time Ive painted resin, and to be honest I found it a pain, I washed the mini first before spraying, but found several problems painting her, especially with flesh colours (I normally struggle with skin) the paint seemed to dry to quickly and flake, creating a bit of a mess.
On hindsight I really should have painted her in blue vault suit rather than yellow, oh well.

Avengers Assemble!!

Captain America (I always prefer Captain Britain) and Iron Man of (if you didn't know) the Avengers. Two HeroClix miniatures i picked up yesterday. I think the Iron Man is a promo piece as he was in a one pack and didn't require any repainting. The ones I bought in the two pack boosters are just horrendous and need repainting (In the case of the TaskMaster, stripping first).

Middlesbrough Games Store no more.

I stopped by my FLGS today to try and offload a whole bunch of old rule books and pick up some paint and some new mini's only to find myself in a barren store full of boxes as the owner was having his closing down sale. 50% off everything, great, not much left though, I walked out with a ton of heroclixs for repainting (not many turned out to be worth it) and got my car clamped for my troubles...

Looks like now Im stuck with Games Workshop and the internet for my miniaturing needs...Its a shame really.

Anipuma and Unipuma

I found these two while trawling through eBay and was quite surprised to find sculpts of the two catgirl androids from the old anime and manga Dominion Tank Police (Second anime I ever bought back in 1993). As it was an old faveorite of mine I just had to have them. They are produced by Denizen miniatures and are 25mm scale with cast hexognal bases, so they are a lot smaller than what Im used to.
For the colours I found this great cosplay photo and I was amazed at how much they had was actually on the mini's.
