Retro Robots

Today I finished a group of robot figures for my Retro Raygun set. These figures are all metal and are from Bombshell Miniatures . First up is a group of 6 'minion' robots.
Next is a pair of 'conehead' robots.
Next up is a trio of emergency services robots: security bot, fire bot, EMT bot.
And finally are my favourites of the lot: a pair of trashcan bots flanking Dr. Zardov.
I really like the clear domes on all three figures. Not something you see very often.

Sitting on my paint table right now is a pile of wizards and apprentices that I'm painting up for Terry's Mayday game and an alien faction for my Mayday game. After that I have a bunch of terrain I need to assemble for my game.

Speaking of Mayday, we've got lots of spaces open!

Hoplites and Bow

Yesterday I finished another four bases for my Carthaginian amy. Although these bases could be used in various other ancient armies as they're not specifically Carthaginian units. First up are two bases of hoplites. Figures are from 1st Corps with shield transfers from LBMS.
The LBMS transfers are really nice, but I'm finding that the edges start to peal away from the shields. I've resorted to brushing on Crazy Glue f I notice them starting to peel. Kind of a pain in the ass.

The other two bases are skirmish archers. These figures are from War-games Foundry.

Sitting on my paint table right now is a batch of robot figures that are almost completed. After that I have a pile of figures that I'm using as Xenithians for my Mayday game and a pile of wizards and apprentices that I'm painting up for Terry's Mayday Frostgrave game. Need to get my butt in gear!

French World War II Vehicles

I found this Kickstarter last night and I figured I'd share it with whomever reads my blog. It's the second Kickstarter campaign run by Mad Bob Miniatures. The vehicles are all of the 'less common' vehicles variety that manufacturers probably won't make.  Not all the vehicles are French, some of them are German.  I'm down for a half dozen and with some luck the campaign will unlock the H39 tanks. If you're interested, maybe consider supporting them.
