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,

Project Z Bikers hit the Road!

Hello Fine Viewer,

A quick post to show you a few mini-things I've finished painting.   I actually used all these guys in a big Project Z game, but forgot memory stick in camera.

First up are four Old Glory bikers. 



Three more Old Glory bikers.



A small group of Warlord Games bikers on foot.

The lady on the left is a little cheeky.  I think the Warlord sculptor sculpts lovely bottoms.

2 Warlord Games survivors and another biker.  The lady on the left is wearing her favorite "Make America Great Again" hat and is always saying President Hillary is responsible for the zombies.

Here's some random bits.  Two crappy beds, two more boring barrels, and some sort of robot thing I found in our FLGS Active Imagination's bits bins.

The roads are thin sheets of wood, with a thin sheet of corrugated cardboard on top, slathered in paint and sand.

I made five pieces of road and tried hard to make it look worn.

Till next time, beloved viewer, when we'll have Rus, robots, revolting peasants, dwarves, and a German minenwerfer crew.

many hugs and kisses,
Baconfat

Dacians, Dwarves, big robot, Mushrooms, Random Terrain, and a Poo Poo Alien

Hello,

I've got a fair number of minis done and ready for viewing.

Here are a few Warlord Games plastic Dacians.  I needed some guys without spear and falx.


The shields paint jobs are actually decals, except the Roman shield which is really painted.

Here are some Old Glory Dacian archers.

Here are four Old Glory Bohemian medieval archers.  I keep finding these guys in my lead pile; I've painted more than the 30 that I bought; no idea why they keeping popping up.

Here are six of the plastic dwarves OOP Grenadier miniatures released in their Fantasy Warriors boxed set game.

Here are two metal Nick Lund Grenadier metal minis and another Dacian archer that missed the earlier pictures.


Here's five of Grenadiers plastic Fantasy Warrior dwarf crossbow troops.

Here are five of the really nice Old Glory Dwarf Wars minis.


A Reaper dungeon loot piece painted like garbage bags and two resin bed things of unknown manufacture.

Here's a repainted MechWarrior plastic robot thing and a mini that I sculpted that was supposed to be a Battlestations Silicoid.  It looks like a poop.

I also made some giant mushrooms out of Sculpy bake clay.

Mushrooms are disgusting with those valve things underneath.

Here are four mini-obelisk things I scraped out of foam.  They might be good plot points for Pulp Alley or Strange Aeons terrain.

I knocked out another middle east/colonial era terrain piece.


Made a few tiny Poke-balls.  They are completely useless versus zombies.


Here's a sneak peek of a space ship that I've been making for the Battlestations board game.


Till next time, when I'll probably have post apocalyptic bikers, space ship corridors, and who knows what.

Love and Kisses,

Pulp Alley Action! Vinter Vunderland adVenture! or The Phantom Menace's Winter Vacation.




Hello Dearest Viewer,

I must apologize for a long absence and my not wasting valuable internet space with mindless posts.  First we'll another Pulp Alley adventure, run by Lord Dain (Dave), starring everyone's favorite Phantom Menace, then I'll post another post with some recently painted minis.


Here are the villians of the film:  Peaches, Munter, Gunter, Bosun, Capt Wolf, and Fifi.

The infamous fame of these villians has brought them an ally, the Creepy Old Man.

Luckily, the Phantom Menace has recruited more members for his gang, er,  team.  The Maniacal Mechanical and Charevil Chan.

Here's the entire gang, I mean team of heroic heroes.
Slick, Maniacal Mechanical, Phantom Menace, Charlevil Chan, Mr. Hooks, Dr. Naughty, McDonald, and Harvey Rabbit; is that box in the background a clue to future projects???

Here is the romantic winter scene where the action will occur.  The four red markers mark the minor plot points and the ice fountain sculpture in the middle marks the main objective.

The ice crystals are really neat little models
As expected the teams deploy on opposite sides and immediately run toward nearest minor objectives.

Slick and Charlie head to a minor plot pointand solve it.

McDonald and Dr. Naughty find our second objective.

The nefarious Captain Wolf and Fifi have eyes on an objective of their own. 

Bwah-ha-ha, the Phantom Menace shoots and wounds the moronic Gunter, but where is that witch Bosun?

The villainess is hiding behind a tree and attempting to solve a plot point.

Nearby the cleaver wielding creepy old man pops out from a tree!  Luckily the eagle eyed Mr. Hooks and Harvey Rabbit are ready to knock him back.

McDonald remembers to breath while Dr. Naughty solves our second plot point.
"No, no, no McDonald you may not take a BM in the chair.  I told you to go before we left the lair"

Captain Wolf solves the first bad guy plot point and is joined by the rabid mongrel mutt Peaches and the big gun toting Munter.

Bosun is about to solve the plot point, but she fails. 

The ga... team rushes the center of the table and is ready to grab the main objective, on the off chance the bad guy B-squad can ever finish their second plot and open this one up.

That dammned beast Fifi has been unleashed by Captain Wolf.  His tiny brain has focused his attention on our valiant robot, Maniacal Mechanical.

Drat, the mindless Gunter has arisen from his short nap. 

You can see, almost everyone has made it to the center.  Chaos will surely ensue.

The Maniacal Mechanical's chest cavity opens and barfs a hot steamy blast onto Fifi.

The blast nearly misses Bosun, who has given up her attempts on Capt. Wolf's second plot point to help out in the middle.  Luckily Mr. Hooks shoots her down with his hook friendly pistol.

Captain Wolf has made it to the fountain (at the top of it).  You'll notice Peaches is attacking Harvey Rabbit.  The two of them spent most of them playing together.

Mechanical moves around the fountain to blast Wolf, but the villain escapes unharmed.

Wolf swings around the fountain and rudely assaults our good Doctor.

When no one is paying attention, Capt Wolf's Gunter (off screen) has uncovered their second plot point.  This has enabled the Phatom Menace to uncover the MAIN OBJECTIVE!!!! BWAH-HA-HA-HA!



The party pooper Munter has just arrived to shoot his big dumb gun and knock down poor Maniacal Mechanical.


Vengeful, the entire team unloads their firepower at Captain Wolf.  He goes down, several ounces of lead heavier.

The Mechanical mechanically returns to his mechanical feet.  The team sees the opportunity to leave with the prize.
"Return to the Phantom Lair, hot chocolate and cookies for everyone!"
Manical Mechanical farts his greasy hot gas blast onto Munter.  "TASTE THE HOT FROSTING OF OUR HOT VICTORY FLAVORED CUPCAKES OF WINNING!", says the robot with his voice modulation unit, apparently damaged by Munter's earlier gunfire.

The team sneaks away like thieves in the night, I mean they heroically march off the field.

Harvey is still battling (playing with) Peaches.  With most of Captain Wolf's gang consisting of snow angels and the Phantom gang in supreme ascendancy, we call it a game. 


"BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!  We must stop at a convenience store and buy zee miniature marshed mellows and zee sprinkles for our hot chocolates.  Nothing but zee best for our gang, er, I mean team."

Till next time, when we have painted Dacians and Dwarves and maybe a poop monster.

Love and Kisses,
Baconfat
