Finished this set of three figs. These plastic 28mm figs are from Mantic Games and their Nightstalkers army. From left to right they're a Banshee, a Screech and a Shade.

I don't know if the figs are any good game wise, but they are neat figures. The Screech was definitely my favourite of the trio.

Early War Russians

Finished some more early World War 2 Russians. These 28mm figs are from Plastic Soldier Company and are the Infantry Heavy Weapons box. First up are two teams of AT rifles.

Next is a pair of AT rifles going for a walk.

Next up are four machinegun teams. I failed to notice that on the two walking teams both of the figs are supposed to be pulling the gun. I made them so that only one of them is and the other guy is holding his arm behind him in moral support I guess?

Next is a pair of 50mm and 82mm mortar team.

I should hopefully have one more post before the end of the year.

Ashigaru Archers

Merry Christmas all! This short post contains a pair of 28mm skirmish bases of Ashigaru archers. These metal figs are from Kingsford Miniatures. They're based up for Impetus, although I'm also looking forward to using them for Commands & Colors Samurai Battles when it comes out.

One of my painting resolutions for 2020 was to get done 3 bases of samurai/ashigaru. These bases, coupled with work done in last year's paint challenge will finish that resolution.

Rebels, A Monster & Books

Been a while since I've posted. The figures I eluded to in my last post took a long time. These are the Rebel half of the Star Wars Legion core box. 

There's 7 different poses with 3 of each pose. So a nice variety of figures. 

Next up is a lone monster. This figure is an Adult Remorhaz from Wizkids D&D miniatures line.

I went with a purple colour. It's actually a little darker in person. 

The Analogue Hobbies Paint Challenge starts tomorrow so I'll probably have 1 or 2 more posts before the end of the year. 

Lately I've been watching a number of book videos on Youtube. One of them had mentioned the SF Masterworks collection done by some publisher a number of years ago. The entire list of books is on Wikipedia SF Masterworks. There's 203 books in total and I've decided to read them all. Prior to deciding to read all of these, I've read 10 of them. Since I started a couple weeks ago, I've completed an additional four more. So only 190 more to go! Edited to add the book covers of the ones I've read so far.
