Dragoons, Zombies, WWWI, Musketeers, Robots, Casualty Fail, etc...


First up are some dismounted Perry French Dragoons.  The tops are chopped off mounted models, with dismounted legs.

Here are some old fantasy sci-fi German models.  They were part of the Warzone Target Games lines, which are now owned by Prince August, which I believe used to be Dunken Models.  They are about the cheapest decent sci-fi 28mm models one can buy.  The smaller based models are old RAFM models, but I don't believe they're still available and I don't know the name of their line.

The robot looking dogs are old "clicky" Battletech models called "Fenrir".  I have no idea what a Fenrir is, but I thought my evil space Germans, might want some robot puppies.  Three of them are repainted in original colors, but one was already painted well enough that I only rebased him.

Here are some WFB Empire models I've been working on.  A volley gun called a Hellblaster and a really big mortar.   The following crew, I was planning on using as mercenary Germans for a WAB army, but they are really just WFB fantasy models.  They're fun to paint, and I have about 40 crew I painted 20 years ago (incredibly poorly), that I plan to repaint shortly.
Lastly are a couple failure Warlord Black Powder casualty marker design failures.  The first on left, kept letting the die fall off when the model was moved.  The second, on the right, was a terrible failure as the base was a Herroclix base.  The clicky base was dissasembled and repainted, but was a failure because it was hard to turn, and really looked crappy.

The best Black Powder bases I've seen are from a superior blog:    Poker chip casualties are the best way to go.

I painted an WWI German Anti-tank rifle soldier, from Great War Games.

Here are some pics of Perry Prussian Musketeers still on their sprues, with pics of the box art involved.

The only problem I could find with the models is where the backpack joins the model at the bedroll.  There's a ugly little spot that will need filler.

Here's a Herrorclix model that I partially repainted to be Dr. Who evil robot leader.

Next time, I hope there are some Perry plastic Prussian Jaegers done.  I hope to include some progress of French Napoleonic artillery crew and Perry Prussian Fusiliers.
