Oldhammer Guardsmen, Ogryn, Survivors, and Charlie Chan

Good Afternoon Delight-some Viewer,

Today I have a few more minis completed.

The first group is nine of the original plastic Imperial Guardsmen.

 Here they are at night running away.

Here are two of the long OOP metal Guardsmen next to one of the newer plastic Cadians.  The model in the middle is dreadfully static.
 Here a blurry picture of their backsides.
 Here are two Ogryn.  I put off painting these for many years because they had no guns, just stupid big hammers.
 Here they are looking away.
 Wandering aimlessly.

The mushroom is an orange stem.
 Here they are with their fellows, painted a few years back.  Their fellows need their bases to be completed.  I wish I had painted all their giant hand grenades ups as big Fosters oil can beers.

Here are a couple ill equipped zombie apocalypse survivors.  I hope they last longer than black guys do on The Walking Dead show.

I tried to give the cricket fan a proper cricket cap.
 Here's a Charlie Chan figure from Reaper; next to him is an abysmal Uruk Hai miniature of unknown origin.  I would guess that he was from Heritage, but he had a round base.  I think the Heritage LotR minis had rectangular bases.
"Excuse, please, to speak without thinking is to shoot without aiming."
 I wish that they'd make a Charlie Chan tv show or movies.  I know many people think the original films were racist, because a white guy always played Charlie.  As a child I very desperately wanted to be Chinese, so I could grow up to be like Charlie Chan.
Till next time, when I should have some French Nappies I haven't quite finished.  Perhaps there'll be some other stuff too, besides old Guardsmen.



  1. Great looking minis as always. You've got some real gems in your collection.

  2. Nice. And it is good to see Charlie Chan. I used to watch him work his sleuthing magic back in the fifties on our 1st B&W television.

  3. It's really a museum of oldities (old+oddities) :) Great job on that mushroom :D

  4. Oldies, but goldies. Nice!

  5. Lovely work Bf! Eclectic as always. Are you saying the Walking Dead has a racial undertone? It is set in the south, so who knows! Then again, Morgan has come on like a Jedi at the end of season 5 dude.

    1. I know Morgan's great, but I'm quite worried about him. I'm afraid he'll go the way of T-dog, Noah, Bob and of course our greatest loss Tyrese. At least Bob went out classy.

      I won't miss the preacher when it's his turn.

      Most of all, I want Daryl to mate with both Carol and Michone and repopulate the earth with super zombie -ass kicking children.

  6. Very nice work on the Guardsmen and Ogryns in particular. :)

  7. Amazing brushwork all-around, James. That Charlie Chan figure is a great tribute.

  8. I wish you much fun with my comments, perhaps this blog will be a great blog someday I hope, I really liked this part of the article, with a big and interesting topic has helped a lot of people who don't oppose things that people should know, thanks a lot.
