Yet More Germans

It's been a while since I've completed and posted anything up. Real life has unfortunately been intruding. Today I finally got the last of the plastic early-war Germans completed. The figs in the first pic are plastics from Warlord Games. Please excuse my crappy pics.
The next set are two communication teams from Black Tree Design. Not sure why I bought two teams.
Next group are also from Black Tree Design and are a pack of German casualties.
Next set is a pair of motorcycles with sidecars also from Black Tree Design. Nice figs except for the drivers who have giant ham fists.

The next figs are from Wargames Foundry.

The Foundry bikes are quite a bit smaller than the BTD ones as can be seen below. Not the greatest display of the difference, but in person they look woefully smaller.

On my paint table right now is a pair of figures for a friend that are completed and are just in the process of being based. After that I've taken on a new project ('cause I don't have enough to paint as it is!), being the French and Indian War. I've acquired a number of boxed sets and the first set to be painted up will be a box of the Indians.

Carthage, Monsters and Points

Recently I finished off an eclectic group of figs and pieces. First up is a set of 28mm plastic Carthaginian Citizen Infantry from Victrix. Nice simple figures.

You may notice that the commander has a decal on his shield and no one else does. Well, cover your eyes children, this post is about to get R-rated. I had a nice set of decals for them. They were a set that was designed specifically for this set of figures. They were from Little Big Man Studios so they should be awesome. 

The problem with this shield design is the decal has to be cut in half to go on each side of the shield boss. Well, once that was done, it was utterly fucking impossible for me to get the plastic cover off the decals without destroying the goddamn decal itself. So the whole fucking lot went in the bin. I can't believe how shit those decals were. So then I tried painting designs onto the shields. That would've turned out better if I got a drunk lobotomized chimp to do it. At this point one of the figs fell onto the floor and I honestly had to stop myself from just crushing it underfoot. I actually contemplated throwing the lot into the garbage.

So instead I just painted them a couple shades of white. Yuck.

The next set of six figures are metal fantasy figures. First up is a set of monsters.
The figure on the left is a two-headed troll from Reaper Miniatures. Nice figure, although I'm not thrilled on my green paint scheme. The other two figures are a pair of Violent Fungi from North Star Military Figures Frostgrave line.
These human figures from left to right are Hans Bullman from Reaper, Hercules also from Reaper and a Barbarian Chief from the North Star Frostgrave line.

Finally as I'm running a War of 1812 game at our "not Mayday" event this Saturday, I needed some deployment points.
I scrounged these from various bits I had laying around. The barrels I think I got from Michaels, the cannon balls are beads from a necklace, the logs are from an old Italeri set (I think) and the bases themselves were part of the sprue from some MDF set. They came together quite nicely but are obviously only for 54mm. Beside a 28mm figure, the barrels would be monstrous.

Germans and Carthaginians

Just finished a group of two sets of figures. First group is two units of Carthaginian cavalry. These 28mm metal figures are from Renegade Miniatures. The base on the left are actual Carthaginians, whereas the one on right are Gauls in the service of Carthage.

Next set of figures are a trio of World War II German Panzer IIs . These figures are from Warlord Games.

Up next is probably some fantasy figures I started before last Christmas, followed by some more Carthaginians.

Germans & Monsters

Recently I've finished an assortment of 28mm figures. They're a motley collection of early-war Germans and monsters for Frostgrave. Starting with the Germans I have a pair of MG34 LMG teams. These figures are metal and are from Black Tree Design.

Next up is a pair of plastic Sd.Kfz 251/1 Hanomags from Warlord Games.

Onto the monsters. These figures are all metal and are from Reaper Miniatures. First up is a hydra.

And finally is this group of three monsters. From left to right: Undead Troll, Cretus the Minotaur and a Giant Scarab Beetle.

Next up will be some more Germans and I'm not sure what else.

54mm War of 1812 U.S. Infantry

Recently I finished a large lot of U.S. Infantry. These hefty, all metal figs are from All The King's Men.

Tried something a little different with the flag as my previous flags looked like shite. It turned out better than I thought it would.

Up next will be a small number of fantasy figs probably followed by some Germans.

French & German Early-War Vehicles

Recently I finished a group of early World War II French and German vehicles. Early war is a great time for vehicles, lots of variety, some good some wacky. These are all 28mm resin with some metal bits. All but one of these are from Warlord Games. We'll start off with the lone German vehicle - a Sd.Kfz. 231 (6-rad) armoured car.
Now onto the French vehicles. First up is an R35.
Next is an R40.
The next tank is from Mad Bob Miniatures. This is an AMC-35.
And finally is a pair of Char B1 bis.

Numidian Cavalry

Recently I finished a set of Victrix 28mm plastic Numidian Cavalry. Figures were easy to assemble and dead-easy to paint. Transfers are from LBMS.

Dropfleet PHR Heracles Battleship

Recently I finished painting the PHR Heracles Battleship for Dropfleet.

Nice, very detailed ship and easy to paint up.
