British Regs & Maglev Terrain

Finished a few more French & Indian War figs and some terrain for Stargrave. The figs are 28mm metal figs from North Star Military Figures. These are British Regulars in Campaign Dress.

Next is some terrain. I got these from Chris years and years ago. No idea what they actually are. Some kind of framing thing maybe? Regardless, they've now been made into a pair of maglev tracks.

Each one is 44" long. End to end that should definitely cover most of the table. I have some more of these things but their heights vary. These are the tallest of the lot. Next post will be more terrain with hopefully a few figs.

Terrain Pieces

Been a slow month, what with real life, heat, and other stuff. So what I've completed, I've piled into this one post and it's all terrain. First up is group of computer screens/consoles that Terry had 3D printed off for me.

Next up is a pair of guns that Terry had picked up at a garage sale. These will find use in Star Wars Legion. They're a little bigger than the correct scale but perfectly serviceable.

And finally are the pieces that should definitely find use in Stargrave. These are old GW 40K terrain pieces.

I'm starting to mass a decent collection of these. If only I could find more.

On my paint table right now are some more terrain pieces and I've got a pile of the Mantic terrain kits that I need to assemble and paint. I might be able to stick in a figure or two into the queue and it will probably be creatures for use in Stargrave.

More Sci-fi figs

Finished another batch of sci-fi figs recently. These 28mm figs will most certainly be seeing use in Stargrave. All these figs are resin (with some metal bits) and are from Bombshell Miniatures. All the figures in the next fours pics are from the Galactic Defense Force (GDF) faction from their Counterblast game. First up from left to right is a Shrinaar Sentry, an Alanti Commander and a Human Sentry. 

Next is an Alanti security officer, an Illyrian Sentry and an Illyrian Ranger.

And finally is a cat in a space suit, which is just asking to be used as a loot token. What better loot piece could there be than having a ship's cat? And the fig on the right is a little robot that will probably see use as a Repairbot.

I'm going to be throwing myself into terrain construction for the next little while so there might not be very many figs coming out in the next month or two.

Russian Vehicles & Dinosaurs

Finished a few more items up yesterday. First up is a pair of early war Russians vehicles. Both of these are resin with metal bits and are from Warlord Games. First is the FAI light armoured car.

Next is a BT-7 light tank.

Next up is a pair of dinosaurs. These plastic figs are from WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures line. First up is the T-Rex followed by the Triceratops.

My copy of Stargrave has arrived, so I'll be finishing up the figs I do have on my table right now and then I'm going to be working on a pile of terrain for Stargrave.

Russian Infantry

Finished the last of the World War 2 Russian Infantry. These 28mm metal figs are from Black Tree Design.

There's nothing special about these figs, they're just basic riflemen.

And finally there is the sniper, Lady Death. This fig is from Warlord Games.

I've also picked up some more boardgames recently.
So I like GMT apparently.

Anywho, on the paint table is some Counterblast figs that will pretty much get used for Stargrave, I have a couple Soviet vehicles that I want to get done and some monsters I'd like to get done soon.

F&IW Indians

Finished another small batch of figs. These are all 28mm metal figs. This first group is from North Star Military Figures' Muskets & Tomahawks line.

For the next group, I only remember where one of the figures is from.

The second figure on the left is from Warlord Games and came with the A Dark and Bloody Ground book for Black Powder. Great book by the way. The other three figs I'm not sure who the manufacturer is. They're either from Warlord, Sash & Saber, North Star or Galloping Major.

F&IW Part Who Knows

Finished yet more French & Indian War figures. First group are 28mm metal figs from North Star Military Figures and are part of their Muskets & Tomahawks range. These are a group of British Highland Light Infantry.

This is the first time I've painted tartan so I think they came out decently. Could use a few more black lines, but they look perfectly fine for the gaming table.

Next up is the British personality character pack from Warlord Games. These are 28mm metal figs. From left to right they are: Washington, Monroe and Wolfe.

On my table are some natives and some 15mm Ancients that I'm slowly grinding away on.

F&IW French Regulars

Finished my second box of French Regulars. These 28mm metal figs are from Warlord Games. Pics are crap but that's par for the course!

I really do like the Warlord Figures and they may be my favourite manufacturer for this period. And I'm probably done with painting white uniformed figs.

Star Wars Legion Vehicles

Finished a pair of Star Wars Legion vehicles on Saturday. Both of these vehicles are from Fantasy Flight Games. First up is the AT-RT.
You may notice the right handlebar is missing. My set was missing that piece for some reason. Oh well. The rider is carrying his blaster rifle in his right hand so it's not like he was using the handlebar anyway.

And finally is the T-47 Airspeeder.

Nice and quite easy to paint up. I haven't mastered the ability to paint decent windows yet so I'm not particularly thrilled with how they turned out. I'll have to find a decent tutorial that doesn't require 30 steps.

This actually was the last of the Star Wars Legion pieces I had. My SW:L paint pile has been completely eliminated. There's still a few things I'd like to get and it would be nice if FFG built their line intelligently. I'd like to see some Imperial army troopers and maybe some other vehicles without having to pay an arm, leg, lung and kidney for some 3D prints. Evidently the actual development of all the Star Wars miniature lines was handed off to another company as Asmodee is in the process of destroying FFG. Yeah, I have an opinion on that.

15mm Ancients & Buildings

Here's the latest figs I've completed. There's two parts to this post: 15mm Ancients and some 15mm buildings. After building my New Kingdom Egyptian and Hittite armies a few years ago I had a bunch of partially empty packs. I just decided to make some more bases because you can never have enough units and realistically, what else was I going to do with them? These figs are all from Old Glory 15s. They're based up for Impetus, Sword & Spear and Hail Ceasar. First up are bases of Sea Peoples infantry.
Next up are some Nubian archers.
Next is a pair of Egyptian archers.
Here's a lone base of Egyptian heavy infantry.
And finally is a pair of skirmish slinger bases.

I also managed to paint up some middle eastern buildings. These resin buildings are from Forged in Battle's War & Empire range. This is the Eastern Village set with a Minaret Mosque Tower. I know Islam wasn't around at the time of the NK Egyptians and Hittites but it will find use in the Arab medieval armies I'll be working on later.
