  1. In keeping with my 2017 goals - my May goals are: Paint a figure to represent the character Lady Saber Finish painting my adventuring historian mini Paint a character mini for Space 1889 Paint a Frostgrave wizard Paint another Mithril mini for the month > My 2017 goals are: To paint enough Sci-fi miniatures to play the game Future Tales. ( none so far) To paint the remaining figures to fill out my Frostgrave base forces. ( 3 so far) To paint character figures for the remaining characters in my Call of Cthulhu campaign. ( 7 so far) To paint mythos creatures for my Call of Cthulhu campaign. ( 7 so far) To paint the graveyard terrain from Reaper's Bones 3. ( when I get it) To paint three entries for painting competitions this year. ( I painted one for a contest that didn't happen. Doh!) To paint one Mithril figure each month. ( On track with four) buckyball
  2. This is the Mithril figure I chose to paint for April. It came out about as well as I had hoped. The downside though is that it is too delicate to use in a game. buckyball
  3. Isnt there a more obvious choice for science fiction themed elves, dwarves, orcs and of course humans? I seem to remember a company in England that made some of these. As I recall the figures were a bit chunky and sort of cartoony. That was a long time ago though, and I am not sure if they are still in business. buckyball
  4. Here is the final product. so to speak. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. It matches my other migo, but is significantly larger and more scary looking. buckyball
  5. That is pretty ambitious. You are a better man than I Warlordgarou. buckyball
  6. I also use transparent acrylic bases. I have found the gel superglue is the best. It doesn't cloud the bases and it sticks pretty well. But I also add a small pin through the miniature's foot to help hold it to the base and resist sheer. This is where the gel glue comes in useful. Any excess tends to just ooze out around the figure's foot. It wont spread very much. And when it dries you can barely notice it. buckyball
  7. Can anyone recommend figures that look like Valarian and Laueline? The classic image is buckyball
  8. This could be a female version of 50162: Sam Ayers, Pulp Investigator That figure has a separate hand sprue with a pistol or flashlight. So it could be either armed or unarmed. buckyball
  9. In keeping with my yearly goals, for the month of April I plan to: Paint my large Migo warrior for Call of Cthulhu Paint two more NPCs for Call of Cthulhu Paint one PC for Call of Cthulhu Paint a miniature safe for various games Paint this month's Mithril miniature (It will probably be another Gandalf.) It was Gandalf > My 2017 goals are: To paint enough Sci-fi miniatures to play the game Future Tales. ( none so far) To paint the remaining figures to fill out my Frostgrave base forces.

  10. Here is the one for March I believe the figure is called Nimrodel Sylvan princess buckyball
  11. Yes you are correct. I needed an arm with a weapon. The Migo use a type of freezing weapon. I thought that figure might work. Here is a photo of my other Migo conversion. I made these by doing a head swap on the crustacean creatures from the Magic the Gathering minis game. The original had a mass of tendrils and I replaced it with the body of a flying brain monster. I just cut the wings off and turned it 90 degrees. buckyball
  12. Here is a conversion I did for a Migo warrior in my Call of Cthulhu game The body was a Reaper Warlord miniature: 14456: Mastema, Darkspawn Demon. The head was from Rebel miniatures, I think the figure was called a terror mite. The wings were something from a long time ago. buckyball
  13. I didn't think to start posting these here until now. But this was the Mithril miniature I painted for February. It is called Tom Bombadil and the Badgers. Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow; bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow. buckyball
  14. In keeping with my yearly goal I plan to: Paint three Migo scientists for my Call of Cthulhu game Paint two character minis for the Call of Cthulhu game Paint one Carneval patrician for the Call of Cthulhu game Finish my female fighter-mage from last month Finish my Mithril Tom Bombadil figure from last month This Month's Mithril miniature Elven Princess > My 2017 goals are: To paint enough Sci-fi miniatures to play the game Future Tales.
