Daemons on the cheap

So I'm selling off my Warhammer Daemon army as I don't intend on ever using it again. So I had the figures out and on a pair of trays up on top of a cabinet. This morning I woke up to a crash. I knew exactly what happened, how it happened and who did it before I even looked.
This is one half of the army. Smashed to fuck. They didn't fair to well from the 6 foot drop to the hard floor. The figures that were one piece metal made it out okay, but everything else broke. Even some of the plastic figures exploded.

And here is the culprit:
So I've cleaned it up, matched all the figures to their parts, packaged all them up individually and will be selling the lot in the Mayday auction for peanuts. Only a handful of plastic Daemonettes made it into the garbage can. Blech.

Gnolls & Spiders

Quick update this week. I finished another group of Gnolls. These figs are all plastic and are from the North Star plastic Gnolls box.
And I also quickly knocked off a pair of giant spiders. These metal figs are from Otherworld Miniatures.
On my paint table right now is a box of French Regulars for the French & Indian War and I need to finish up my buildings for my Mayday game.

A Giant

Recently I finished this 28mm giant figure. This is a plastic figure and is from Mantic Games. French infantryman for scale.

Nice figure. I could've did a better job at covering seams and I could've heated the fur piece to bend it over the body more. Live and learn!

On my paint table now is another group of gnolls.

Fantasy Monsters

Recently finished up some fantasy monsters.The first three figures are all from Otherworld Miniatures. These figs are all metal. First up is the iron, or in this case bronze, golem.

This figure was ridiculously easy to paint: one coat of bronze, wash and done. The following two figures are a basilisk and a cockatrice.

And the final three figures are plastic trolls from Mantic Games.

On my paint table right now is the giant mentioned in my previous post.

Finished up the terrain I mentioned in yesterday's post. There's quite a lot! First up are six transport containers from GW. These a great pieces of terrain. I made them so that four of them would be sealed shut while the other two would have only one hatch open.

On the same container sprue as above are a number of barrels and crates. So with six sprues I have quite the assortment, which is awesome. From this I made seven bases of terrain.
These sprues are excellent, so I'm expecting GW to discontinue them.

Next up are some painted barricades from the Star Wars Legion core box from Fantasy Flight.
And finally are these six resin objective markers from Secret Weapon Miniatures.
I'm waiting on some terrain to come in from Sarissa Precision for my Mayday game, so in the meantime I'm going to be working on some fantasy monsters including this bad boy:
Till next time.

Samurai Cavalry

This past weekend as part of the Analogue Hobbies Paint Challenge, I finished up a trio of Samurai Cavalry bases. These figs are from a Steel Fist Miniatures Kickstarter they ran a few years ago.

These three bases will be the start of the second Samurai army. Hopefully I can move it along faster than the first army.

Also finished recently was this half-orc monk from Reaper Miniatures.

Sitting on my paint table right now is some Strange Aeons figures that I'm doing for a friend and a bunch of terrain pieces that I need to get done for my Mayday game.

British Regulars and Cultists

Recently I finished a couple batches of figures. First up is a box of British Regulars for the French & Indian War. These are metal figures from Warlord Games.

Nice figs except for the fact that a full 1/3 of them have no guns. Kind of strange.

Next batch is a group of 7 Genestealer Cultists from Games Workshop. I'll end up using these for Space Hulk.

Next bath of figs will be in a week or two.

Early War Armour

Finished some more early World War 2 tanks. First up is a group of four Panzer 38T's. These are from Warlord Games.

And next up is a trio of French H39's. These are from a Mad Bob Miniatures French Kickstarter they ran a couple years ago.

On my paint table right now is a box of French & Indian War British regulars.

Germans and Hoplites

My post this week will start off with a bunch of early-World War 2 German ordinance. All these German figs are 28mm metal from Warlord Games. First up is the sIG33 150mm howitzer.

Next up is the leFH18 105mm medium artillery piece.

Next is the 75mm leIG light artillery piece.

And finally is this medium mortar team.

For my smaller pieces (mortar, infantry guns) I usually glue a couple crew to the gun base and then have the extras on individual bases. Unfortunately when I glued the kneeling crewman onto the mortar base I didn't notice that he's carrying a shell that will not go into a mortar. I didn't notice till the figure was almost completely finished. Oh well!

And finally is a base of 28mm mercenary hoplites from the plastic Victrix Mercenary Armoured Hoplites boxed set.

I finished them and realised that I hadn't picked up any decals but I dug out some older Veni Vidi Vici decals I had. I really hate putting decals onto domed shields. Just blech.

Next week should be some German and French early-war tanks.
