Kettle Helms, Stormtroopers, Squatkopta, Prussians, MFP and More!


It's nice of you to visit.   I have a number of completed minis, to show you.  First up are six Essex Knights in kettle helmets, that I painted for a friend.

Here they are running away.  Painting spiral lance patterns isn't easy.

Fantasy Flight Stormtroopers.

I don't know where I got the head for the helmetless guy's head.

Here are three Warlord brand Prussian Landwehr with pikes.

I like the metal Warlord model backpacks more than the plastic models.

Here is a GW Tau drone, a Squatkopta, and a Brother Vinni robot.  Removing the ork and spikey bits from the kopta thing was an awful task.  I may not make three of these.

It's hard to see, but the squat has a "Gargoyle Gang" emblem on his vest.  Gargoyle gang are the good guys on the classic Johnny Sokko Giant Robot show.

Two Old Glory biker cops, without motorcycles.

Here are two Old Glory motorcycle cops and an Antenocitis Workshop police car.

If you haven't noticed they're painted to look like the "Main Force Patrol" from the Road Warrior film.

Here's a classic Ral Partha Orc and a random post apocalyptic survivor from EM-4.

I think you can get the post apocalyptic Copplestone sculpts for Mirlton too.

Here are two ancient GW dwarf (pre-slotta) models.

The guy on the right is the original "White Dwarf" (FS17, 1980).

Here are three Phalon clone models from the old Spacelords game range.  I think I stole their color scheme from Ironman comics.

You can get the Spacelord models from Moonraker Miniatures.

Here are two Deep Ones.  They are from Black Cat Bases.

I enlarged the wooden floor base with green stuff.

Today everyone posed on another rtv/paint/sand smeared on cloth 4' x 4' mat I made.

Till next time beloved viewers, when I'll have a gang of Ramshackle Squat bikers and jet-bikes.

Rubbish, Rubbish, and Stuff Made Out of Garbage

Happy Sunday Purveyor of Pictures of Little Things,

Today I have garbage post of trash minis, junk made out of junk, and smashed dollar store toys.

First up is a car made out of a "Fast and Furious" toy car.   The driver, a Cadian Imperial Guardsman, is wearing a Star Wars Naval Trooper uniform.

The car body was removed and the new body is made out newspaper soaked in glue.  I needed the body for a different project.  The passenger is Valhallan Imperial Guardsman.

Here is a Old Glory biker that didn't get painted with all his fellows.

Here are a bunch of garbage cans from Antenociti's Workshop.  I wish Mr. Antenociti had been born Mr. Smith.  That name is impossible to remember.  I could remember Smith's Workshop.

Here are some garbage cans made out of clothing dye bottle tops, cardboard boxes made out of thin chip board soaked in glue, and an unfired projectile made out of some weird Dremel tool bit.

Here are some books made out of paper and clay (one has a human face), some Reaper Bones urns, and strange die I found in a cave near Dunwich.

Here is a wooden table and wagon from Wizkids D&D primed plastic line.

Here is a kitchen thing and a bathroom stall pulled out of toy camper van.

There's an unwashed sink and toilet inside, trailer trash.

Here are some signs that came with a dollar store toy.

Here are some resin wooden walls, whose manufacturer I can't remember.  I just dry brushed them grays, browns, and greens.  I still need to paint the corners, but can't remember what paints I used.

Here are some really cool Mantic Games "The Walking Dead" barricades.  I have no idea of what the green and yellow things are.

They're plastic and I honestly don't believe these garbage piles  would do much more than slow down zombies.

Here are some tire piles.  I smashed dollar store toys up with a hammer and stole their wheels.

Here is a building for a post apocalyptic junk town, I've been slowly working on.

It sound like someone is riding a motorcycle on the roof.   Ho, ho, ho, it's Biker Claus, bringing guns to all the bad boys and girls.

The corrugated colors remind me of Senegal's flag.

Here are some of the quickest roads I've ever made.  You can see one of the smashed dollar store toys on the second one.

I finger painted rtv onto used sand belts, sprinkled construction sand, spray painted brown, and dry-brushed.

Till next time, my beloveds, when I'll probably show you some more post apocalyptic vehicles and who knows what.

love and kisses,
