Saxons, Robots, Romans, Survivors, Dogmeat, Junk, and More

Happy Sunday Distinguished Viewer,

     I've recently finished painting 33 more little guys.  There's recently been no rhyme or reason behind any of the choices.  I need a project to maintain focus on one type of mini, but I hate projects forcing me to focus.

Here are five Saxons from Renegade Miniatures.   I don't know how many of these stupid shields I've painted, but I know I'm getting lazier in my designs.  I'm glad the Normans destroyed their stupid army as I am tiring of painting their stupid shields.

I wish I had bought shield transfers.   It's too late now I probably have less than sixty left to paint.

Here are three near future combat robots Anvil Industries.  Anvil makes some of the best near future minis and robots which most likely pleases our future robot overlords.

Here's two Norman miniatures from Old Glory.

Looking at the picture, I realized didn't finish painting the yellow shield.  Stupid dumb shield painting.   If I was a medieval lord, my troops would not carry shields. Does anyone make shield transfers for Old Glory Normans?

Here are three post apocalyptic miniatures.   The middle one is from the old Vor game, available from Scotia Grendel.  I think she is called a Junker and works in Scotia Grendel's customers service department, the customer service department that promised (multiple times) to send missing vehicle parts for an order I made, which they never sent.

The outside two are old Copplestone sculpts available from Moonraker, Em4, or Mirliton, and probably more companies. The fat guy is in everyone's post apocalyptic collection.

Three Roman archers from Warlord.   And no shields!

I have three more almost done, that didn't make the photo shoot.

Some old OOP dwarf models from Citadel and Ral Partha.  

The Citadel guys were a gift from one of my favorite Grognards, Stan.   The guy on the right doesn't have a stupid shield.

Here's Dogmeat from the Mophidius Fallout Warfare game.  I painted real German Shepherd urine on the model to make it smell authentic.  I won't bore you with hassles involved in collecting urine from a dog you don't own.  And try not to lick your brush if you plan on using my scent method.

He's next to four terrain bits from Mantic's Walking Dead game.  Dogmeat's base looks awful and needs some cleanup.

Here's a rock (I think it's a bone fossil) on a base and two bits of Wizkids D&D scatter terrain.  The book has text from a language I spent seventeen years developing, while I lived in Tibet.

Here's an old GW servitor with a much newer genestealer cult mining laser arm, standing next to a Mageknight fish man thing.   The fishman has crystals on his base, that I collected from a geode I stole from a Temple of Thor, that I later smashed with a hammer, back when I lived in Iceland.

Lastly are three short robots from Denizen miniatures.   I have a few more in the painting que to add to my growing robot horde.  The little bits are quite bendy and the models should only be used by close friends wearing kid gloves, made out of real children.

  Till next time, my Beloved, when I'll have more random minis for you, your guess is as good as mine.

7TV Post Apocalyptic Survivors, Randos, Tech Gangers, Fallout Mutant Hounds, Graves, and a Corrugated Junk Pile

Hello Distinguisher Viewer,

Today there are fifteen small things for you to look at.

First are three minis from Crooked Dice's 7TV Apocalypse game.

Reverse pic

Comparison with a Copplestone/EM4/Moonraker miniature, the Copplestone mini is shorter, but people vary in sizes.  I don't see why the older sculpts can't mix with the newer ones.

A Reaper WWI pilot, a Warlord Prussian Officer, and a WW2 German of unknown manufacture.

Here's two ancient Citadel Confrontation/Necromunda Tech Gangers with a Games Workshop Last Chancer model.  The one on the left has an Old Glory/Blue Moon robot arm added to it.

The two Citadel models have newer GW Cadian arms and flame thrower pack added.   I didn't use original arms for them.

Here are two Mophidius Fallout mutant hounds and an old Citadel model from back when the Imperial Guard or Astor Milliputorium was called the Imperial Army.

I wish I had painted the Guardsman red to match the earlier three red models.

An Old Glory Norman casualty.  I have hundreds of not casualty Old Glory Normans to paint.

Here are three resin grave models.   I can't remember who made them. The big one had a body in it which I Dremel tooled out.

The smaller gravestones broke off after I bought and dropped them.  The gravestones are made out of foam now.  The one on the right has a coffin made of matchsticks in it.

They sit quite high on the table.

Here's a crappy looking post apocalyptic outpost made only out of scrap pieces from earlier projects (and cereal box).

 It may look awful, but it does double as a topper to make my big rig look post apocalyptic.

Top view.

I plan on making more removeable armor or spikey thing add-ons to make the rig a proper war rig.
I wish I could find the missing headlights.

Till next time, when I'll probably have some Oldhammer dwarves, Saxons, post apocalyptic stuff, and who knows what else.

X-Wing Crash, Aliens, Steel Legion Guardsmen, Robots, Junk, and alot of Saxons

Happy Mother's Day Distinguished Internet Viewer,

     Today I have 81 little things to show you.  

First up is an Star Wars X-Wing crash scenery piece.

It's made out of an old Mattel toy that I scavenged for parts years ago.  The base is dense chip board, blue foam, plaster, sand, and craft paint.

The X-Wing got a quick airbrush, a tiny bit of blue marking, and generous stain washes.

Here are ten Old Glory/Blue Moon Plutonians.  I painted one of their heads like a candy corn to designate a leader.

Here are warriors from Uranus. :)   They are also Old Glory/Blue Moon.  They'd make great W40K IG conscripts.

For a leader, I gave one a Gargoyle Gang emblem on his jacket.

Here's an old Citadel tech ganger and some weird model from an unknown company.

The ganger has a space marine armor and an Old Glory robot arm.

Here are three Steel Legion Imperial Guardsmen, now called Astar Munchliptorium.

Here are some Wizkid models.    The robot things have Old Glory arms.  I think I will have to repaint the box shaped one, I HATE how it came out.

The panther is about the size of a 50 pound dog.

Three Antenocitis Workshop public phones and a Crooked Dice mini of a VCR, bottles, and tube tv on a tire.

Ten Saxon slingers.  All of the Saxons in this post are from Renegade and you'll notice I haven't finished the bases.  If I finished the bases, I wouldn't be able to tell them apart from Saxons I've shown you before.

Thirteen spearmen.

Six more spearmen.

Seven Saxons with chainmail and hand weapons.

Three horn blowers.

Lastly nine more spearmen.

Till next time my beloved, when I might have some post apocalyptic 7TV stuff to show you, but I never really know.
