Modular Battlestations Ship, Landwehr, Imperial Guard, Space Marine Attack Bikes, Zombies and Robots

Hello Enlightened One,

I thought today, I'd show you some modular Battlestations terrain I was working on.  I quit working on them, because Battlestations 2nd Edition is coming out very soon, with really nice game tiles; it seemed rather pointless.


Here's some scientists discussing science in the science lab.

More hot science action in the warp hyper drive room.

Here's a robot playing Atari Missile Command in one of the missile bays.  The missiles are made out of pens from the banks I rob.

Here's some cute little robots running to a big gun wired to a Nintendo controller.

Here's a couple bots and a human worried about hungry space monster slug cyborgs.

Here's a couple small bots wondering why the blogger is too cheap to buy proper shipping containers and makes barrels out of bottle caps.

What the F are Evil Dead zombies doing under the floor panels?

Here's the Captain and friendly poop alien loafing off on the bridge.  Can the enlightened viewer recognize the grids on the computer screens.

Here's four GW Imperial Guard Steel Legion troops.

Here they are admiring the Epidote rocks they posed in front of.

Here's two Rogue Trader era pirates or guardsmen and an old metal Cadian Sergeant.

"Come on guys, look at this uncommon Epidote formation."


Here's an original Rogue Trader Assault (?) bike and a more modern one, that's a plastic/metal mix.


I forgot the Ultramarine symbols.  The yellow chap in need of touching up is a Flame Eagle.  The gray marine is a Brotherhood of a Thousand marine.  Only 953 chapters left and I'll have at least one of each!

Here's some Warlord Games Prussian Landwehr and a Foundry Frenchmen (I only based the Frenchy).


For the life of me, I can't think of a scenario to use napping Prussians.  Perhaps they were a rather sleepy people.


Here are some Warlord games zombies.  The two decomposing females are older sculpts from the Wargames Factory era.  The guy in the Starbucks Coffee shirt is a Roebeast's Magical House of Sunshine zombie model.


A mix of crawling Warlord/Wargames Factory zombies crawling.

A large Reaper mini that I'm using as a big strong zombie and two Old Glory British trench mortars.


"Ep-i-do-te.....Ep-I-do-te......"


Two Old Glory robots, that I wanted to look kind of worn.  I'm the worst at painting yellow.

You'll notice a lack of grass on bases, because I ran out. 


Till next time, when I should have some WW2 Americans, a couple Prussians, LotR dwarves, or whatever catches my fanciful fancy.

Love and Kisses,
Baconfat

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
