This thread is something ... different from other works I have been done.

 

I guess it's not entirely in accordance to the board rules, so you may forgive me and accept my humble bundle of roses, choclate and other stuff that will easy your severely upset minds.

 

When I am in the mood, I am doing so many speed builds up to the point of painting (means assembly, basing and priming), that making them all into different threads I would flood the forum with an unnecessary number of threads.

 

So I will keep this limited to the building process of my different tabletop figures, armies and stuff and transfer the finished figures to their respective painting threads.

 

 

 

 

What's on the table at the moment?

 

Watchful I Studios

 

28mm Chinese Army Deal (around 100 figures and equipment)

 

Warlord Games

 

56 Soviet Russians (winter) (making M into F)

 

Raging Heroes

 

Sisters of Eternal Mercy: 10x Sisters and 10 Flying Sister plus some support units

 

Andrea Miniatures

 

1x Female Warrior (upgrading her to be a Chinese Warrior Woman)

 

Creature Caster

 

1x Tree Walker

 

Flames of War

 

Fallschirmjäger-Kompanie + Support Weapons

4x Battlefront StuG 3G

1x Plastic Soldier Company StuG 3G

What's done and ready to be painted?

 

Flames of War

 

1x Fallschirmjäger-Zug (9 units)

1x Fallschirmjäger Kompanieführung (HQ) - different Units and support weapons.

 

Warlord Games

 

- 18 German Fallschirmjäger
- 10 German Panzergrenadiere

 

Mantic Games:

 

Kings of War Succubi Regiment (20 Succubi)

 

CP Models:

1x Female Paladin

1x Naga Warrior

I had been informed by my superiors that I would be on readiness duty over the days leading up to my own shift – that means time for me to ready some figures.

 

I mean – Hey – I have been sitting with all those package boxes here for quite some time, so I need to get rid of them.

 

So … what have we got here?


I recently got me a unit of 20 succubi from Mantics Kings of War game.

 

I don't know what I could use them for but they looked like fun and as I have got Sophie here, she could easily make their commanding unit in a series of frostgrave games - or so. Haha.

jykm-2l8-eac7.jpg


Then I got a Tree Walker. Got her with a another shipment of used figures. Guy asked me: Wanna have her? 40 Euros?


Didn't know what to do with her, so I said: yes - gimme dat!

 

jykm-2l9-49ef.jpg

 

And last but not least: WWII miniatures for my Russian front scenario. A whole lot of Russians - the will soon be Russian girls and some units of German forces for my round up and totally burned down German battle group.


Both units are more or less unique in the gaming community at our town, so they are much fun to build and to finish.

 

jykm-2l1-4f3b.jpg


Couldn't stop myself and already started ... hihi.

 

jykm-2l2-b66d.jpg

 

jykm-2l3-7709.jpg

 

jykm-2l4-c92b.jpg


Well then - I've got until the 7th. Let's see how far I can push that ...

 

//

 

Just let me give you a quick update on the current process:

 

 

Fallschirmjäger and Grenadiere are done. I just noticed I don't have enough bases on me to finish them all. But I can finish at least 12 now.

 

I really love how every of those characters is telling his own little story and I am looking forward to painting them all one day and putting them on the battlefield for some more or less successful games.

 

jykm-2lh-3840.jpg

 

jykm-2lg-125d.jpg

 

jykm-2li-44a0.jpg

 

jykm-2lj-d740.jpg

 

jykm-2lk-5215.jpg

 

jykm-2ll-9c02.jpg

 

Treewoman is making good progress. The miniature is really huge. I am deeply impressed. Still not sure which head I want to go with. Maybe I take them both and magnetize the body to change heads whenever I want to.

 

jykm-2lm-cb53.jpg

 

And then the Succubi force. At least for those I have got enough bases, though I wonder what those holes are. Not very helpful there was no assembly manual provided with the package. Still a very easy build.

 

jykm-2la-dd70.jpg

 

Bodies ...

 

jykm-2ld-ea7c.jpg

 

Equipment ...

 

jykm-2lc-8345.jpg

 

A number of randomly evil Mini-Me's

 

jykm-2le-8969.jpg

 

And ... wait ... is that Mini-Sophie?

 

jykm-2lf-1363.jpg

 

Anyway ... that's it for now. Time to say good night.

 

Next step: Finishing the succubi and then over to the Russians. Oh ... and I found another figure I have to finish, too. Hihi. But that will be talked about later.

 

See ya tomorrow!

good progress!  Those recesses in the bases look like you can take a figure with a round base and slot it in there to make it a square base.  Maybe so you can use the same figures in games with different basing requirements?

Thanks Dilvish,

 

I thought so, first, but considering those are 20mm square bases the basing would allow only for a 10mm figure or so to be based. So I am currently a bit confused. Maybe for magnetizing or a stable stand. I don't know.

 

//

 

Anyway - here we go again:

 

Started this day cutting and cleaning the equipment:

 

jykm-2ln-e637.jpg

 

And a few hours later:

 

20 succubi - as promised - they are done. Need to do the bases now. Gnihihi.

 

jykm-2lr-be17.jpg

 

Then I had a look into my box and found CP models Diana. I got her some time ago from Bad Squiddo games on a purchase, as there were only a few left. Liked her pretty much, because she reminded me of Devola from the NieR franchise. Will make her into Devola - at least a bit.

 

As Devola in both parts of NieR is a differen person using different clothing, I consider this to be another installation of her - haha. Anyway. Got to make her ready. Means: Some Lunar Tears into her hair.

 

Guckst du hier:

 

jykm-2lo-c46e.jpg

 

jykm-2lp-0ba1.jpg

 

Looks a bit like her, doesn't it?

 

Well then - let's make some greenstuff action and see how it turns out.

 

By the way:

 

@Cyradis - We talked about it earlier - so that's what my mobile workstation looks at the moment:

 

jykm-2lq-e2f4.jpg

 

need to clean it up - haha. Yeah. Got some good memories to this one :-D

 

Next update is already on the way.

Argh - work got a grip on me earlier than I expected, so I had to pause for a moment.

 

Got the possibility to finish the first few miniatures yesterday.

 

Unfortunately I ran out of bases, so I wasn't able to finish the whole force.

 

But for now we've got all 9 Grenadiere

 

jykm-2lw-c6b2.jpg

 

jykm-2lx-d01b.jpg

 

jykm-2ly-c883.jpg

 

... 2 Fallschirmjäger ...

 

jykm-2m0-cc56.jpg

 

... Devola ...

 

jykm-2m1-d051.jpg

 

jykm-2m2-be36.jpg

 

... and all 20 Succubi ...

 

jykm-2m3-223e.jpg

 

jykm-2m4-aab6.jpg

 

jykm-2m5-38a9.jpg

 

jykm-2m6-721e.jpg

 

... ready for painting.

 

And our tree woman is making good progress:

 

Tree Woman - May not be safe for work, though it is just a tree. But a very good looking tree, I might say so.

 

New bases have already been ordered, so we will see some progress, maybe already soon.

Those holes in the succubus bases are for other Mantic minis. Their zombies & skeletons have round integrated bases. Use them how you did, looks good.

Some time ago, a rather large 28mm Chinese army arrived from Watchful I Studios.


jykm-2n5-697f.jpg

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting ... assembling miniatures like lightning.

 

jykm-2n4-be91.jpg

 

A number of figures has already been assembled and is now drying. More stuff with the next update

 

//

 

Then I was given a WWII Fallschirmjäger Company for the Flames of War Ruleset and have to assemble and paint them as well ...

 

jykm-2mo-60f6.jpg

 

jykm-2mq-98ce.jpg

 

After I repacked them to have more space at my room left (haha) ...

 

jykm-2mw-c192.jpg

 

... I started to clean and assemble them ...


jykm-2mv-bd59.jpg

 

jykm-2mu-0963.jpg

 

jykm-2mp-acf2.jpg

 

jykm-2mn-0e21.jpg

 

jykm-2mm-bb28.jpg

 

jykm-2mx-1deb.jpg

 

Then it was time to continue with the StuG. It was a rather easy assembly.

 

jykm-2mr-f486.jpg

 

jykm-2ms-2af3.jpg

 

jykm-2mt-3b59.jpg

In Japan I got me a number of Andrea Miniatures's Fantasy figures to make some ... err ... Fantasy figures out of them ...

 

jykm-2n0-d2d7.jpg

 

jykm-2my-aa1a.jpg

 

//

 

And then I got a number of ... hm ... I don't know what kind of figures those were or from which manufacturer, but them will also become Fantasy figures.

 

I did some headswaps, as I didn't like the original heads. Now they look a bit small, but maybe I will be able to make some capes in order to make them look more ... impressive.

The last week I had time to continue some of the current work and therefore this weekend will be a speedbuild and base coating weekend.

 

Let's start:

 

The first Platoon and the HQ section for my 15mm Fallschirmjäger unit is ready.

Yeah - well - I cannot stay all too long on one project. I would get dizzy as time passes :-D

 

I have "packed" a box with all the projects I currently got on the table. It looks like this:

 

jykm-2ox-ba20.jpg

 

My plan is to get everything to the state of having primed it and then I can either sell it or see what I really want to work on.

And some more stuff.

 

A wooden figure I bought in Bavaria. I really like her, so I will try to do a very decent paintjob on her ... Oh, boy - what have I done?

And the finish to all of my paratroopers. I had some of the original base coat left, so I primed them like the rest to match the base colours.

Last post for today. Has been quite a busy week and weekend. I am proud of what I achieved until now :-D Continuing tomorrow.

 

First off - a few chinese.

 

Got the command section done so far. Female general, officers, some kung fu fighters and tai chi masters.

Next will be five Dust tactics mercenary girls. I don't know why I bought them. No particular reason. I just like them.

 

jykm-2ps-c0b8.png

 

jykm-2pt-6267.png

 

And some adventurers for some fantasy game or pen&paper. I bought them in Tokyo at a small store in Akihabara. Therefore: A busty crusader girl, a naga with chain mail bikini and a gun maid. I don't know any pen&paper that would allow me to field them all, but well - who cares?

 

jykm-2pq-644c.png

 

jykm-2pr-54a1.png

 

And some Alephs for Infinity:

      As I said on my Saproling's topic, I had today off, so...  I decided that in addition to the saprolings, I'd knock out some tabletop quality ghouls. They were already assembled and primed, so the first thing was to paint the undead flesh. I used Vampire Shadow for their sickly skin. It didn't quite match the ghoul I'd painted before, but it was close enough. I sadly didn't always take good notes...

      After that I decided that as these were primarily going to be gaming ghouls, and not for a unified force for Kings of War, they'd each get their own clothing color: Red, Green, Blue, Tan, and Dark Brown. I used Rusty Red, Muddy Olive, Rich Indigo, Desert Stone, and Ruddy Flesh. The eyes were all painted with Walnut Brown, as were the spikes sticking out of them. 


      Then I washed them all with a mix of 4 parts sepia wash and 1 part black wash. 

      A little bit of highlighting with the base clothing color, then it was time to paint the bases black, and then flock them! Oh, and a bit of watered down rusty red around the mouth.

       
      Oh, and aged pewter on the spikes and the cleaver. 
       

      Looking good for such quick work.

      Last year @Pochi painted me a barbarian as an exchange fig. (located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80953-spring-exchange-brand-oathblood/&tab=comments#comment-1717270).
      More specifically she painted me a barbarian inspired by the song Holy Diver by Dio (I tend to put odd things for inspiration in me exchange forms).
      I liked him so much that I based my current 5th Ed. character off of the fig.  Now Pochi's fig is far too precious (my precious!!) to go on the gaming table, so I've been using a bare Bones version with the intent of painting him "any day now".
      Now that we've hit 7th level, I'm actually getting around to paint something.  But, since I need him for the weekly game, I'm painting an alternate version first, then I'll swap figs and work on the Brand Oathblood version.
      So I'm starting with 77373: Cuth Wolfson, Barbarian.

      This will depict Dio wielding his mighty great axe, Eloise.
      Now Cuth's default axe was a touch....limp, so I dug out the Bones III weapons pack and picked a nice stiff replacement.
       

       
      Much better.  Now just a little putty to fill in the gap and he'll be ready for his bath before linering.

      I hope it's acceptable I post this here.
       
      All of us are double-crossed from time to time. Life is mean. Life is hard.
       
      In my case, it was later. To be precise: Late enough so I couldn’t do anything against it anymore.
       
      I have been a fan of the Kingdom Death minis ever since I knew they existed. I love the anime design and the anime poses and … errr … kyonyuu.
       
       
      Anyway: Some time ago I came to know that I could buy single figures instead of the whole bunch and a friend, who owns REAL Kingdom Death minis – and I mean the old resin ones, not the new hard plastic stuff – recommended me to buy some to see if I would get along with the tiny and breakable resin bits. So I said yes. Did it. Went to EBay and checked. Hell, were they expensive.
      I was so disappointed and stopped looking, but a few days later I got some miniatures recommended and went back to EBay finding Kingdom Death Minis for a reasonably low price. The seller had mainly perfect reviews and just a few mentioned “recast” and said, that there is nothing special about it. So I thought: Ah, those have to be the recasts my friend spoke of. Yeah. But the recast he meant was a new batch of KDM figures – not piracy ones. I have to admit: I didn’t check it. I bought five figures. 25 Euros, no shipping costs and when they arrived, the first impression was great. I was impressed … until I tried to assemble the first one and her parts crumbled underneath my fingers.
      I went to my friend and showed him the figures. He told me the whole thing and I was pissed. Especially because conducting a reverse transaction in such a case in Germany can be … weird some times. Not enough damage done … can’t do anything … on your own … much more money and time lost … I had that before. So I took it as “lessons learned” and put those figures away, buying the hard plastic ones from KDM Website instead … But that’s another story.
       
       
      A few days ago I was at hangout with the lovely, wonderful and talented @Cyradis (of course not as lovely, wonderful and talented as I am, but still a great person) and she suggested something to me I had lost over the pressure of the last few years of trying to get back into painting: Do something I like and enjoy. Maybe something that doesn’t mean much to me but is perfect for getting back into painting and all that stuff. (Something I try since two years and normally always get the same, NOT HELPFUL reactions of either practice more or take a break ... ).
      And when I went to my new apartment and unpacked all the miniatures there, I finally found those few figures. They were cheap, they wouldn’t be much of a loss if something went wrong, but most of them were damaged or unfished.
      So I thought: Why not make something out of them … creat something new. That moment it struck me: I had been a fan of the NieR franchise and last year in Japan I bought some of the Artworks of NieR: Automata. So I went through those and checked on the internet, deciding, I would make some RPG miniatures out of them … YorHa style.
       



       
       
      Well then … Let’s start!

      As my first airbrush attempt on the Roman centurio was halted by the fact that the figure is so small, I decided to use a different figure, which would be ... bigger.
       
      So in Japan I got me a number of garage kits. One of them was a figure of a nun or mage (I don't know the figure, so I have no idea) and as it was some kind of a miscast or so, I got it for the cheap price of around 6 Euro.
       
      She's big enough to do some airbrush work. And as I want to train airbrushing, I don't want to ruin my first attempt by choosing wrong colours or too difficult painting concepts.
       
      Therefore: YOU CAN CHOOSE THE COLOURS!
       

       
      NO! I really mean it! Gimme some colours, people.
       
      Oh, yeah - That's the figure:
