Female Zombie Killers, French 3rd Hussars, Prussian Officers, Lady Spies, Fall-Out Vault Surviver, Blofeld, Mechwarrior, Citadel Robot, and a Dacian

Hello Dear Distinguished Viewer,

I have an assortment of painted miniatures for you this week.

First are some female zombie killers.  They're from Wargames Factory's "The Women" boxed set.  I had every intention of making the African American lady out to be Mishan from the Walking dead, until I had realized I had glued a shotgun to the wrong model.

Here are some French 3rd Hussars.  They are Perry plastic models and a pleasure to paint.  That said I may never paint another damned Hussar.  They took forever to paint.  I'm not sure their uniforms are to blue, I read their uniform was Argentine blue, but everybody else on the internet paints there's gray.

Their sabertaches (French for man purse) won't stay glued on.  I would glue them on before painting next time.

Hussars running around pointlessly
I've only now realized, that I forgot to give them carbines and I didn't paint the horn blower's sword hilt.

Here's two Perry metal Prussian Officers close to vegetation that is not historical, but livens up their boring bases.   I think the Perry with only one arm must have sculpted these on a bad they.  One's face is ugly like Chunk from the movie Goonies.  The other has a huge chunk of metal between his head and his raised sword.  There the only two Perry miniatures that have ever displeased me.

More Reaper models.  The bald chap looks alot like the James Bond villian Blofeld and there's a couple female spies from Reaper, they'll probably get eaten by zombies.

A couple monsters from the out of print Doom Boardgame, by Fantasy Flight?  I'm painting their bases black until I come up with a decent theme for more Doom monsters in the painting cue.  I didn't paint their irises yet, because I forgot.

Here's a old Mechwarrior toy.  It has to be probably a 1/72 or smaller scale; at 1/56 or 1/48 it should between 6-8" tall; I know I have some; but, it is about the same size as a Games Workshop space marine dreadnaught.  I didn't spend much time on it doing things like removing mold lines.
That's a 28mm clone trooper head on his base.

An old long out of production Citadel robot.  I apologize for the dull paint job.  The ones in the old White Dwarf adds were so colorful.  I have five more to paint some day, so I may paint them up correctly like clowns.

the cild is included for scale, an adult may have been a better choice

And lastly a group of random miniatures.  First a Reaper model, who I tried to paint up like a Fall-out video game vault surviver, but the yellow stripes came out awful.  A Reaper cat lady.  A Wargame Factory plastic male surviver.  A Dacian leader with a sword, who somehow snuck into the painting cue.

could the second from the right be Mrs. Blofeld?

Till next time when I hope to show you some futuristic Nova Corp troops and a few Burgundian archers.



  1. Another wonderful eclectic mix. The Hussars are stunning, but I really must get my hands on some of those survivor models.

  2. This is a wonderful mix of genres and palettes. Excellent brushwork!

  3. These are great. No idea if the colour of the Hussars is right but they look really good. Like the reference to Chunk LOL! Those female survivors are nice looking figures. Must admit my favourite is the larger lady with the RPG, it looks right some how. The Rifleman mech is my overall fav, good battle damage.

  4. Great assortment of figures dude. Sabertache sounds like a sword with facial hair.LOL.

  5. Beautiful work all round! As for the sabertaches I glued them on before painting and so far no problems!

  6. I'm alwayspleasantly surprised at your very varied output, the mechwarrior would easily fit into a Starship Trooper scenario too.

  7. Great looking survivors and I really love you bond villain and chicks! You have had a very productive few weeks it seems! Keep it up

  8. Impressive work as always; I like that heavy lady in slippers with the RPG. The 3rd look great too - the grey/blue looks perfect. Everything is impressive!

  9. Excellent work, love the hussars especially!

  10. I have the doom models from the board game but I don't recognise the one on the left though?

    1. Little Lead Person, it may be from the expansion set. I just went and looked at the boxes and don't really know which one he's from.
