A Pair of Sci-fi Flyers

Last post of the year. Finished up a pair of science fiction flyers. Both of these 28mm resin figs are from Bombshell Miniatures. The first one is a V16 Windrunner Rocket Bike. 

The next fig is a Mekkus Strafer from their Mekkus faction.

This fig originally came with the same short clear base as the rocket bike above and I thought it looked really odd basically just hovering nap-of-the-earth style so I made up a new base. This one uses a 60mm wood base, a brass rod and some ancient assorted bits I had lying around. A definite improvement from the short clear disk.

Last of the French & Indian War

This will probably be my last post of the year, although there may be a slight chance that there will be a post in a couple days. So this post is the last of the eight boxes of French & Indian War figures I got from Jonathan a number of years ago. And this will pretty much complete this project, finally! These 28mm metal figs are a box of British Regulars from Warlord Games.

As the Analogue Hobbies Paint Challenge has started for this year, I'll probably have a decent number of posts over the coming three months. Next up on my paint table are some science fiction figs.

Stargrave & French & Indian War

It's been a long time since I've posted up anything. I didn't forget to post up painted stuff, I just haven't really painted anything. So this will be my first post in over 6 months. I've got two sets of figures completed. First up is a small assortment of Stargrave figures. These 28mm metal figs are from North Star Military Figures. 

From left to right they are a Rogue, Mystic, Mystic and Psionicist.

Next up is a box of French Compagnie de la Marines for French & Indian War. These 28mm metal figs are from Warlord Games.

On my table now is the last of my French & Indian War box sets, the British Regulars.

A little while ago I picked up this pair of books from Karwansaray Publishers (the guys who do Wargames Soldier & Strategy) for the Japanese Sengoku period.
If you plan on painting armies for this period, I would highly recommend getting these books before any others.

Figure assortment

Noticed I forgot to post up some figs that I painted up a month ago. Haven't done anything since, just haven't been into painting. This first batch of figs are 28mm metal figs from Renegade Miniatures. It's been a number of years since I bought them and Renegade isn't around any more so I'm not 100% sure of what they actually are. I know they are for my Carthaginian army. The first base I'm pretty sure is Gallic cavalry.

This next unit I believe is some Iberian light cavalry.

And the last base is I believe actual Carthaginian cavalry.

I also painted up some 28mm metal Greek hoplite casualties. These are from Wargames Foundry.

On my paint table are a handful of Stargrave figures. Hopefully I can get a little bit of painting done this weekend.

Samurai Characters & Critters

These are some more figs that I finished a week ago. First up are some 28mm metal Samurai characters from Kingsford Miniatures. First up is Not-Lone Wolf and Cub.

Next is Not-Yojimbo and Not-Zatoichi.

Next up are the critters. These figs are 28mm plastic from Wizkids assorted D&D lines. First up is a Giant Octopus.

Pics aren't the greatest, and as you can see it's Next up is a pair of Xorn.

I've already have a bunch more figs ready to post up and I should get them up in the next couple days.

Fig Assortment

Been a while since I've posted, February was a wash, just had stuff on my mind. Looks like I forgot to post up some figs that I did over a month ago. So I'll probably drag this over a couple posts. First up is a pair of 28mm plastic Gricks from Wizkids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures D&D range.

Next is a pair of Flumphs from the same Wizkids range.

Next is lone Magmite. This 28mm metal fig is from Northstar Military Figures Frostgrave range.

Here's a size comparison with a 28mm Stargrave Medic.

I also finished a box of Warlord Games Woodlands Indians from their French and Indian War range.
