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)

1x Tree Walker

 

Flames of War

 

Fallschirmjäger-Kompanie + Support Weapons

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

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-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-2mp-acf2.jpg

 

jykm-2mn-0e21.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.

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.

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?

      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!

      Hey everyone,
       
      Here's a 20mm Qin Chinese sword fighter from Caesar miniatures, which I painted two years ago as a test miniature for a 20mm variant of Warhammer Ancient Battles - the project never really came to life, because then all my companions decided they didn't want to do it in 20mm anymore.
       
      I still have got a group of those ancient Chinese fighters, and this one is the best looking, I think (haha). Never got the NMM right, nor the real metallic (or what it is called), but I think he came out pretty decend with his head wound (which is a cover up of a missed seam line).
       
      Enjoy the pictures.

      Hello everyone,
       
       
       
      Once again I am starting a new project.
       
      To not disturb the continuation of the story, I put the remarks and so on into spoiler boxes.
       

       
       
       
       
      Thanks to @malefactusand @Silvervanefor supporting my idea and providing first feedback,
       
      Thanks to @Glitterwolfand @Cyradisfor further support
       
      And to @OneBoot, @buglips*the*goblin and @Chaoswolf for listening to my first attempt.
       
       
       
      Without further ado – let’s go!
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Chapter I
       
      The story of a village begins
      A girl heads out for adventure
       
       
      Once upon a time there was a village named Silvervane, founded on the edge of a rich silver deposit.
       
      Everyone thought that this small and obscure town would soon rise to glory and greatness. A place where to all of the Earth’s kindred would pilgrim. A center of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and creatures from all over the world.
       
      It was not long after this promising beginning, that the Imperial Academy of Land Surveillance measured the true size of the deposit and issued a report to the Imperial Throne, stating that the natural resource was of no significance for the great needs of the country.
       
      This country, as we will soon learn, was called Cyradis and its ruler, the Crimson Empress, decided the fate of Silvervane.
       
      The anticipated Great Silver Rush never happened and therefore Silvervane fell into the dark, bitter maw of oblivion.
       
      Soon, the village was of no importance anymore and its residents – all the people who didn’t want to leave or couldn’t go – had to adapt with their new situation. Being isolated by great forests to the west and the south, a deep and stormy sea to the east and high mountains to the north, they were trapped, an enclave of human life in the middle of nowhere.
       
      It was no easy existence for those left behind. Land had to be taken from the Malefactus, the Evil Forest that bore all kinds of creepy creatures; weird trees and plants, armies of strangely talking mushrooms and other unspeakably fantastic and eerie beings.
       
      To counter the dreads of nature, the villagers hired warriors. Fine and athletic men and women with adventurer bodies, not those puppets or models one would expect in such a situation. No bodybuilders or mannequins. They were real and they were spectacular.
       
      Some of them were dressed in weird clothes though. Chainmail bikinis for example. But that is a fact we can ignore here as the really important values of a human being are the inner ones.
       
      One of those fighters was Sana, a young barbarian woman from the high north, who was very fond of her inner values.
       
      She had a great heart, and as great hearts need a lot of space, her chest was quite ample, too.
       
      On top of that, her liver … well … let’s forget about her liver.
       
      Originally Sana was supposed to be the main character of this record but due to her constant drunkenness, unbelievably violent and rude behavior and the fact that all sorts of people complained about her rather simple clothing, the Imperial Academy of Written Tradition and Oral Lore had to reassess the situation.
       
      Therefore she will not be participating other than as a secondary character.
       
      But: Sana had a daughter. Only the great gods know how that happened, but it did – around twelve years before the beginning of this piece of history. From her early ages on, Barbaria seemed to be a very energetic child. There and back again, she roamed the lands, wandering through the forests and the grasslands, exploring mountains and battling aggressive waves at the sandy beaches of the Sea of Lethe.
       
      Yes. Barbaria was always on the road. Standing still and waiting was not her thing. She couldn’t just sit in the tavern and drink until she fell asleep roaring like a copulating dragon – something her mother had mastered long ago.
       
      And so the girl once again headed out, taking one of the axes of Al, the old woodcutter (a really big tool of destruction measuring almost her own height and weighting approximately seven pounds) and leaving Silvervane for the sake of catching a Glitterwolf.
       
      No one had ever seen such a creature or even heard of it, but Barbaria was certain: the white cat behind the workshop of Sáthach, the weapons manufacturer, had told her the truth when she described the wonderful and shimmering fur of this specific animal.
       
      Al asked her to stop. “She is an untrustworthy missy”, he warned the girl. But Barbaria felt she was on the right track.
       
      So she encouraged the faith of the old man: “I’ll get him”, and left with the big shiny axe on her shoulder. Her long, blond hair, the last of her to be seen before she disappeared into the woods.
       
      And what happened there will be told in the next chapter.

      After I started working on my Soviet Russian girls, I soon noticed that I missed some usable terrain.
       
      So it was time for me to start making some.
       
      I checked my stuff and ... unfortunately I didn't have got any usable terrain. But I had some 28mm Warhammer 40k barrels and boxes. So ... what to do with those? ...
       

       

       
      Luckily I am a person full of ideas and dreams and melancholy. So I remembered back in the days when I was young, I played a game called "Blitzkrieg".
       
      "Blitzkrieg" was a lovely game using a lovely graphic engine for displaying things. And they had this wonderful supply depot, which I think would be perfect
       

       

       
      First off I have have to prepare some boxes to later have a good foundation for the blanket.
       

       
      ... which ended in in looking like this:
       

       

       

       

       
      Time to paint!
