  1. I am almost certain this RAFM miniature, RAF02802, "Desirée Dark, Mercenary," sculpted by Werner Klocke, is meant to be the character Selene from the "Underworld" series. I painted her up, though, as a regular human. To compare and for the amusement value, here's one of the first figures I painted after coming back to minis after a twenty-year hiatus, a few years ago. It's another version of Selene from "Underworld," this one from Hasslefree (Hasslefree HFA021: Dionne (B)). I ... think my style has changed, some, the last few years.

    Warships!

    Along other things, i enjoy painting and gaming with 1/2400-scale modern naval craft. Here's my US Navy contingent thus far. Lake Erie, Carney, Ramage, and Samuel B Roberts are from GHQ, the rest are from Viking Forge. Up next are the Russians. All the surface combatants are from GHQ, the Kuznetsov and subs are Viking Forge, and the Mitrofan Moskalenko is from Shapeways.

    Militia Miniatures -- The Bad Guys

    Pendraken is a company that does a wide range of 10mm historical and fantasy minis. Occasionally under other trade names they branch out into some other stuff like terrain or larger figs. In this case they are doing 28mm moderns under the trade name Militia Miniatures. Since their very friendly forum is my second home as far as posting about the hobby, I figured I would share this here even though I don't really do modern conflicts. What is Militia Miniatures? Militia Miniatures was first launched through Kickstarter in 2014, with an initial set of 10 modern mercenary personalities. 139 backers helped us reach our goal and all of the pledges were delivered within 2 months! It's taken a bit longer than we'd hoped but we're now back with a fantastic new sculptor and another 50 sculpts, all suitable for wargaming, roleplaying, or simply collecting and painting! For this project, we've had 50 new 28mm sculpts produced by the extremely talented Paolo Fabiani, which are all waiting to go into moulds. If we can hit and exceed our target then we've got some nice extra goals planned... Here is the link to the KS.
  4. This is RAFM's "Paige Fox, Reporter," which I looked at and immediately thought "Lois Lane". She's a little cartoony, maybe a little satirical, but I painted her up with all seriousness. WIP thread here. And a couple of Superman's-eye views (aka how she looks on the table):

    Hero Forge test figures

    As if I didn’t have enough to do, I started playing around with the design systems on the Hero Forge web site. I finally ended up ordering a couple of figures to see how they looked when done. I’ve been reading the various Bordertown books lately, so ended up drifting into some urban fantasy territory here. It’s a little unfortunate that their system doesn’t have a playing pose, given the availability of the violin and bow. I do seem to accumulate musicians, though... The necromantic spell effect wasn’t my first choice, but it looked like the safest from a structural integrity view, so I went with it. Both of these were done in the higher grade plastic, and I was pleased to see that the layer lines were pretty much invisible after painting.

    Hasslefree Brooke

    Received my Hasslefree Kickstarter recently, and decided to paint one of them. Brooke was an add on to the pledge, but I painted her cause I wanted to add her to my not Firefly "Pulp Alley" gang because she reminds me of River Tam. First try at NMM for the Knife, and I'm pretty satisfied with the result. The sequined hoodie didn't turn out as I liked, maybe needs several more shades of green. Thanks for looking.
  7. I started this figure to be a slightly overenthusiastic Russian bodyguard for Vampire: The Masquerade. When I finished her the GM said she would better serve as a character who is a Mage: The Ascension Void Engineer soldier, basically a space marine. This was also a slight experiment in the sort of colorless blonde character with invisible eyebrows, except I gave her really heavy eye makeup. She isn't really wide-eyed, but her blue eyes are very pale, giving a staring effect. According to Hasslefree's flavor text her two big guns are Heckler & Koch MP5Ks. A little Googling tells me that the MP5K is of German design, but also made in Iran and Turkey, and is "the ultimate close-quarters weapon, created for use in very confined spaces". From guns I know nothing, but okay. There is no WIP thread, but comments and questions are welcome.
  8. This is Hasslefree's HFA181, "Big Charles", sculpted by Kev White. I liked the realism of the sculpt and the opportunity to paint someone with black skin. I've been trying to paint more diverse minis for our games. I liked the sculpt so much I accidentally got two of him. So I painted the other up as a vampire / zombie. I finished him a little earlier and there is a thread here. Here are some comparison photos: Note that vampire "Charles" lacks a shadow: There is no WIP thread but questions and comments are welcome.
  9. This is one of Hasslefree's modern adventurers sculpted by the inestimable Kev White. I tend to paint my figures in a sort of bright way (I think. It's very hard for me to see my own art style.). So I thought I would try to do justice to Kev White's dynamic and fairly realistic sculpt by trying to paint it in a more realistic style. I also welcomed the opportunity to paint someone non-caucasian and a modern mercenary type, which my gaming table is somewhat lacking in. (I realized a bit late he would be perfect for playing around with painting tattoos. Perhaps someone else can take up the challenge.) There is no WIP thread, but questions and comments are welcome.

    Zombicide Survivor Doug

    Well I finished this guy over the weekend. He's been a long time in the works. Several short bursts with long breaks. I finally decided that I just wanted to get him done. So I told myself a lot while looking at it "good enough."
  11. Here's a group of 20mm Bunderwehr soldiers which I did for a skirmish game. They are from Revell of Germany and Elhiem miniatures. Special emphasis was laid on their Flecktarn camo as it is a very distinctive pattern and is absolutely horrible to paint in such a small scale. But I think it came out pretty decent. Enjoy!
  12. This is Hasslefree's HFA180, Monique, part of a group of modern adventurers I've been working on. There is no WIP thread.
  13. This is one of the three figures from sculptor Gene Van Horne's set 50157: Townsfolk: Ladies of the Night (or as I prefer to think of them, Women of the Regrettable Fashion Choices). I painted her up as a vampire in an attempt to show the dusky skin of the undead PoC, but I'm not sure I quite managed it. Anyhow, I really enjoyed using all sorts of unlikely colors that ought to scream "Beware!" to anyone paying attention. There is no WIP thread for this figure, but as always comments, critiques, and questions are welcome.
  14. This is Hasslefree's HFA183 from their modern adventurers line. Our game needed some regular modern mook types, and Hasslefree is pretty good with them. I started him ages ago, but life and politics intervened. There is no WIP thread.

    Charm City Roller Girl

    I'm currently the only person to have entered this figure into the Inspiration Gallery so I figured I'd share here too. She's painted up as a member of the Charm City Roller Girls, the Baltimore women's derby team. It's a stylized/idealized version of their outfit, since the mini didn't exactly match the usual outfit. She's not my usual choice for a painting project, but I have a friend who's one of the team's refs, so as a late holiday gift, I painted her up and just mailed her off. She should get it on Thursday. If you like it, follow the link, and give it a thumbs up! I'd love for her to be the example image for the mini.

    Ready for action

    Started these back in October, specifically the Sara Blitzer conversion. Was working on them at Reapercon, finished them during the Minivember challenge. Based and sprayed last night. I also completed one more of the Tisdale cousins, from the BoGW. They are ready for the game tonight. From left to right: 80024, 80049, 80014, 80019, 80021, 80010.

    Zombicide Modern Abomination

    Well over Minivember I had high hopes of great accomplishments. For me that entailed finishing more than one mini, 30 hopefully. Well, I failed to achieve that. I did however manage to start and finish another Zombicide mini (more actually, but they will be in another post). He was a relatively quick paint for me, and with the idea of table top. I gave the Tamiya Clear Red a try for the blood effects. I like the effect just not execution. Well with out furthur fanfare or words and such, is my Zombicide Abomination. Thanks for any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  18. I've been working on these guys for the last couple of nights when I haven't been watching Stranger Things...

    Kitty

    I started working on Kitty about 2 years ago. I decided to bring her along to ReaperCon where I got in the zone with her and finished her off. Lots of greens and yellows, but it's all centered around P3 Wurm Green, which is mixed into nearly everything. (I think I had just bought a pot of it right when I first started the mini). Helpful suggestions from other attendees and teachers (Cathy Wappel and Rhonda Bender in particular) definitely improved the quality. The base material is from a tub of stuff I received from Frontline Games in my swag bag.

    Zombicide Amy

    I made more progress on my Zombicide Survivors. Here is number 4: Amy. I wasn't comfortable with painting up the fishnets from the artwork, so I went with lite pink. Otherwise I went for close to art work. As with my other models, I went with no blood on the survivors. Only problem is the blade couldn't be straightened perfectly, but she is for gaming, so good enough. Here is Amy: Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like giving.

    Repainted Heroclix Secret Agent

    This is a Heroclix figure (Lex Corp Security if you're interested) that i got out of a Box of Goodwill. She was a quick and easy repaint, I liked the colors they used, so I just fixed them up so they weren't slopped all over each other. I figure she'll work well in modern, zombie, and possibly near future/ sci-fi games as a secret agent or something like that. I tried to paint her sunglasses to look as though they were reflecting the sky; does it work or does it look lousy? Be honest, please.

    Zombicide Survivor Phil

    I've had this guy finished since last year. I couldn't decide how to do the base so I went with a grey. If I come up with an idea I'll fix it later, but for now I call it done enough to hit the game board. I present to Survivor Phil the Cop. As a note pictures are quite as good as some in the past. I don't currently have access to camera I've been using and these were taken with my tablet.
  24. I picked up Hasslefree's "Post Apoc Gang" in my first order from them last month (when they had a 21% off sale). Thought I'd make a thread to track my progress as I work my way through the team. The gang, from the HF website: I've started work on the first of the crew, "Wolsey" aka Shaggy. Mostly just making sure that I'm getting the colours right at this point, and I'm pretty happy with them, but holy moly that brown on the pants had terrible coverage. Soooo many coats required, but it looks decent now. The base has a coat of Vajello sandy paste with a couple of small rocks added; I'm going for a "wasteland" look rather than a ruined urban look. There's a small patch where the base's slot is still noticeable, but I think I'll end up covering it with a tuft later on.
  25. We're running a sci-fi Savage Worlds campaign right now, so figured it was a good time to start painting up some of the moderns, especially for some NPCs. Since I have duplicates of a few of them, I did quite a few in a desert/marine/army type paint scheme (olive skin triad) and the other guys in a more police gray/blue scheme. The faces on Garvin Markus, Nova Corp Hero didn't turn out quite as well as I would have liked but since these are just baddies I moved on. I don't see these painted too often on the show-off, so hopefully this will help anyone else who had these on their plate. Thanks for reading, comments and criticism are always appreciated!
