Bikers, Prussians, Imperial Guard, Gondorians, and some Robots

Hello Distinguished Viewer,

I managed to take a few pics of 38 recently completed minis, before my battery died.  First up are two Old Glory bikers.



I tried to paint the DC superhero Flash emblem and a Confederate flag on their shirts.

Here are six GW Catachans.  Five of them are metal.  I realized I need to up the genetic diversity of my Catachan soldiers.


Here's an old OOP metal (plastic arm) Imperial Guardsman and what I believe is a "Navigator".


Here are four Old Glory robots.  They will joining my zombie killing robot army.


Here are six plastic GW Gondorians, based in my heretic fashion.


Here's an Uncle Mike brand deep one hybrid and an OOP metal GW dwarf beserker.


We must never forgive GW for destroying the WFB Old World and making the WFB into a space marines with crossbows skirmish game for dummies.


Here are nine Old Glory (second edition) Prussian Musketeers.


Here they marching back up the hill.


Here's three Warlord metal Prussian Landwehr.  The metals are nicer, more diverse, and slightly smaller than their plastic Landwehr.



And here's where the camera died, after taking a picture of four Warlord Landwehr running down a trail. 
Hustle up boys; it's "Taco Tuesday" at the dining facility!!!


Till next time my beloved viewer, when I'll have more random minis that didn't get their souls stolen by my evil camera and more!  There will likely be robots, Prussians, LotR, zombies, WW1 and WW2 goodness.

XOXOXOXOX

Love and wet Kisses, Baconfat

A7V Tank, Dunecrawler, Vickers, Reaction Marines, Cadians, and a rusty SEAVAN

Hello,




I haven't posted in over a month, but I promise to post more often.  Today I've finished a number of models.  First up is a GW Dunecrawler vehicle.

 

I don't really understand why one would paint a vehicle red, but that's what was on the box.


If you take the top off it looks like a giant menacing robot.

The A7V tank is from Old Glory.  I don't know if it's supposed to look crackly like that or not, but it adds flavor.

Here are some RAFM brand not-Space Marines called Reaction Marines.

I made a turquoise wash to try and age the bronze.

Here's a couple Vickers HMG teams from Old Glory.  Please ignore the backwards tripods, I assembled them from memory.

They could really use a dull coat.  It looks as if they are soaking wet. 

Here are some of the original out of production metal GW Cadian Imperial Guard models.

I heard GW is going to kill their planet, Cadia.  I wonder if they are going to destroy the game and go all Age of Sigmar, like how they ruined WFB.

Here's a Reaper Miniatures plastic shipping container; it's two pieces so you can put stuff in it.


Till next time, when I'll have Prussians, robots, bikers, Gondorians, and Catachans.

Love and Kisses,
Baconfat

Rus Warriors, Cadian Stormtroopers, a Rhino APC, Random Minis, and a Cliff Faced Hill

Hello,

It's been awhile since I posted, but I do have a few minis for you.  First up are nine Old Glory Rus Warriors with axes.

These guys mix in terrifically with Gripping Beast Rus.  I'll do comparison pics in a later post. 


Here's six old metal GW Imperial Guard storm troopers.


Here's a plastic GW Rhino APC for them to ride around in.  I must have six or seven of these now.

Here they are with the Rhino hunting barbarians.



Here's a Old Glory robot and a GW metal Rohan character.  Yes, the flag is wrong; I didn't feel like painting a bunch of white horsey lace.

Here's an Roebeast's Magical House of Sunshine zombie, a Victory Force zombie, a Warlord Survivor, and an  alien I made for the Battlestations game.  You can buy Roebeast's zombies at http://www.rsquaredcomics.com/

Today everyone was posing on this big tiered hill I built.  It is meant to sit on a table corner.  The rock faces were a mix of spackle and tree bark if you couldn't tell.
It's light on vegetation so I can add separate pieces and use it for desert, jungle, or forest terrain.



Till next time, beloved, which hopefully isn't to long.  I have three "The Men Who would be Kings" and "Pulp Alley" games to post.  There's also 50ish Warlord Prussians, OG Prussians, Rafm not-space marines, imperial guard, and more robots that are 95% done.

Robots, Rus, Revolting Peasants, German Minenwerfer Crew, Old School Dwarves, and More!


Hello Dearest Distinguished Viewers or Accidental Visitors,

I recently finished painting an almost random selection of miniatures and took pictures of them.

First up are seven Old Glory Robots. 

I painted the least exciting models first.  I was hoping I could come up with an good paint scheme, before moving on to their more exciting robot poses.  I think they will fit my zombies.


Here are three Old Glory Rus models. 

I've got a more almost complete, but their shields aren't done.

Here are eight Old Glory large minenwerfer crew.  I still need to paint the minenwerfers.

Some Old Glory Revolting Peasants.  Their weapons are huge.

Finally something not Old Glory, here are three ancient Grenadier dwarves.

You can still get these models, from Mirlton miniatures.  Mine are sort of beat up from years in a lead pile.

Here are five more.  They'll be great for Dragon Rampant or Chaos Wars.

I really need some of the Bat Riding Dwarves.


Here are two Ral Partha dwarf crossbows and an Grenadier plastic crossbow from the Fantasy Warriors box set.

Here are two more plastic Grenadier dwarves and a bit of scatter scenery.

 Here's a Perry plastic British rifleman, a metal Warlord Prussian casualty, and a Warlord plastic Prussian with a Victrix head.

Running away from the icky dead body.

Lastly a Games Workshop plastic Gondorian and a RAFM/Games Workshop Dr. Who Unit model.  I found the Unit guy in the flgs Active Imagination's bit box.


Till next time, when I should have some Prussians, Rus, Robots, and 40K Imperial Guard (Asstro Mili-terrarium).


Love and Kisses,
Baconfat
