Austrian Grenz and Hittite Archers


Finished some more minis today, thanks to the long weekend.  First are some old Ral Partha Hittites.  They're actually Syrian Hyksos Archers working for the Hittites.  They're still sold by Iron Wind, but at a steep price of $2.50 each.

They've been sprayed with Army Painter Barbarian flesh, painted, then stained with different shades.  They only come in one pose, so I was hoping that the variation in skin tone would give units some more character.

Next are some Fronk Rank Grenz, mostly all AN67 and AN68 poses.  I didn't technically paint these myself.  I bought them used/painted in very poor condition.  All I did was straighten them all out, match paints for the numerous chips, wash, and base them.   The standard is missing because I can't remember were I put it.

Prussian Landwehr Cavalry, Rogue Trader, Ammo Boxes, and More


First completed project for the day are some Foundry Prussian Landwehr Cavalry.  I didn't put the little fanions on because I didn't feel like it.  I don't know what region they're from yet, so I don't know what color to paint them.
Flee!!! It's a giant Confucius!

Next up are some old Rogue Trader era GW models.  Starting on the left is a Chainsaw Warrior model, an "Adventurer" female model labeled "Mad Punk" (she has a Vox), an Imperial Garrison Trooper named Kylla Condotti, and an Imperial Light Trooper named No-Face Fargo.  Chainsaw Warrior was a 1987 GW game where the players traveled around post apocalyptic New York killing zombies and mutants.

They're all standing in front of munitions crates I painted; no idea of manufacturer.   They'd make decent objectives for a sci-fi game

Next is mash up of some spikey plastic mage knight monster thing and a GW two faced mutant head.  On the right is a repainted heroclix Penguin model with some GW guns added.

Three Old Glory War of Religion handgunners.

Lastly are two GW fantasy dark elves attacking an old Grenadier human.  The elves are very stupid models; the weapons being so big that it's ridiculous.

I hope to have a unit of Austrian Grenz up next week as well as some random miniatures.

Foot Sergeants, Crossbows, Archers, Zombies, and Shipping Containers


It's been awhile since I posted pictures of toys.  Here are 16 Fire Forge brand Foot Sergeants.  Need to start buying decals; painting shields takes too long.  Fire Forge plastics come in boxes of 48, so I'm going to make 16 crossbows! (no stupid shields) and 16 spearmen next.

On the far right is an Old Glory (OG) Tuetonic Foot Sergeant I painted at the same time to see how'd they match up.  They don't OG versions are smaller and all wear the same exact outfit.  The OG are extremely quick paints though.

 Next up is a mix, left to right:  OG Hussite crewman, OG Hussite hand gunner, 2 OG crossbows, and 3 old Grenadier Crossbows (came out shortly before they went out of business).

Five Grenadier archers, wish I had more of these models.

A smathering of Games Workshop (GW) models:  OOP metal Greatsword, 2 OOP plastic duelers?, 2 plastic artillery crew.
Four plastic Wargames Factory Zombie Vixens, a long OOP GW metal Commissar, a lonely Victory Force zombie dancing the robot.
Here's a bunch of mobility shipping containers I got super cheap at a NHMGS Enfilade Convention.  They were about $.17 cents a piece, probably being factory rejects, but still a pleasure to paint.

Thank's for viewing, please tell me I'm great.

Love and Kisses Baconfat!
