Neo-Soviet Future 15mm Army in Progress (armies Army, GZG & others) (Pic Heavy)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm starting this thread to show the progress of a Neo-Soviet 15mm army I've been meaning to paint for quite a while .you know the feeling think thats great idea to collect but don't get around to starting them...

 

Heres the lot that will be painted up most of the Vehicles are from Armies Army (sold to Brigade & the Scene in the UK I believe) the BTR 160s & BTR 290s are nice as there are lots of variants APC's Ambulance, recovery vehicles etc which will work well for scenarios which we hope to play.

 

Time to get these out of Storage

Neosoviet_project

 

A lot of Vehicles

Neosoviet_tanks

Nice castings

Neosoviet_tanks1Neosoviet_tanks2

Heavy support from the QRF range

Neosoviet_tanks4Neosoviet_tanks5

 

 

Air support / transport (I think this was from the Critical Mass games collection)

Neosoviet_heli2Neosoviet_heli

 

Infantry (AA which I think Brigade has now)

Neosoviet_troopsNeosoviet_troops2

 

Extra bits such a crew, disembarked crew, machine guns, stowage to add to vehicles

 

Neosoviet_crewNeosoviet_stowage

 

Some GZG Robots to be used as mobile gun platforms

Neosoviet_crabs

 

So as you can see quite a big force I'll keep this thread going as I add to it over the year, I may add a couple  of more items as I have no proper tanks in the force and brigade models has now reproduced its 6mm range into 15mm

Ok this was the 1st test run of the BTR160s APC versions from AA this will be the Camo scheme that I'll use throughout the Army.

base colours added

AA_BTR160-1

 

Tabletop finished could go back and do a little more with the vision slots and stowage & possibly some markings but it looks ok on the table for now.

BTR160s-1

 

BTR160s-2BTR160s-3

 

Next batch to do will alternate between these & the Cavs depending on what mood I'm in to paint :poke:

BTR160 Repair / supply Vehicle (Armies Army) nice as it can be used for either by swapping out the top of the trailer

4_NS_btr160_repair

 

BTR160 ADV (Armies Army) Who doesn't like some air defence 

 

5_NS_btr160_ADV

An Akatsiya (Acacia) 152mm SPGH (x2) with a couple of extra stowage items added

Not a lot to update on this project ATM, I've been working on my buildings but these have now been cleaned and undercoated and base colours added also decided not to do the 2s19 in this batch just kept it to 4 vehicles as the repair APC is almost like doing another vehicle as well.

Ok finally made some more progress on this project, heres a group photo of the above items painted up I also did these slightly different from the 1st ones as the strips are thinner but I think I'll go back to the thicker strips for the rest of them as the 1st APCs look nicer to me that way.

BTR 290 PocoMaxa "Wolverine" (Armies Army)

16_NS_wolverine

 

16_NS_wolverine2

 

The extra machine guns have been added by me each vehicle still needs some stowage added to them also thinking of making a towing rope out of the brass wire I have in last picture as it looks about the right scale. Ive also left a couple of hatches open as I have some 1/2 figures as crew to stick in them will pin them so they can be removed or added as wanted.

 

thats all for now

Very nice.  The thinner strips look good, but I agree that the wider ones are even better.

 

 

Yep agreed nice to know that someone else sees it the same way, I've done a little work on the 'Wolverine' notice I had the gun on the wrong end on the original quick mock-up only when I was starting to work on it properly I realised it was the wrong way around.

The crew are on longer sticks than they will be just for painting thats why they seem to sit up in a few photos, some greenstuff stowage has been added to each side as well

Ok Varnish has dried these are the pictures for the 3rd batch done came out a little darker than I wanted but overall quite happy I'm happier with the slightly thicker stripes that I've done with these I'll be doing this for the rest for sure.

      So one of my players bought a hero forge 3d model and then printed it. I've based it, primed it and now I'm painting it in the color combination he requested. I have just finished the base layer (the goggles will be gold with green glass)
      Hope he's happy when it's finished :D

      Hello everyone, I plan on crafting some blights out of polymer clay. Today I made the armatures out of copper wire and glue and pined them to some old 20mm bases. I plan on using fimo air polymer clay, decorative sand (maybe some rocks too), and a variety of dried tea leaves and spices. Then I will prime them using cheap spray paint and paint them using cheap acrylic paint. I hope they turn out nice. All kinds of tips, suggestion or criticism are welcome :D

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/splinteredlightminis/fantasy-egyptian-scarab-men?ref=discovery
       
      About
      *****Early Bird Special***** All backers who pledge at the Complete Scarab Experience level within the first 24 hours will receive a free Beast of Ammut figure.  I will keep track of the backers who pledge in the first 24 hours but please let me know if you are concerned that you did not make it.
      Beast of Ammut Welcome to Splintered Light Miniatures' 15mm fantasy Egyptian Scarab-men Kickstarter.  A few years ago we released the Sons of Horus, our first fantasy Egyptian themed army, as well as some fantasy Egyptian undead. 
      Over the last few years, we have been planning a series of similarly themed armies and are having them sculpted by Faron Betchley.  Our main goal with this Kickstarter is to get the funds we need for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we are getting the funding for production molds, we can also keep Faron sculpting new armies and mercenary units for future Kickstarter campaigns. We need your help to get this done so please pledge today!
      Our plan is to have 8 packs of Scarab-men available.  Each pack of infantry will have 12 castings.  Each pack of cavalry will have 6 castings, and the monster pack will come with one complete monster.  Each pack will be $8 at retail.
       SCAR01 Scarab Command: 3 leader poses, 3 musician poses, 3 priest poses and 3 standard poses
      SCAR02 Scarab Spears: 6 of each pose
      SCAR03 Scarab Khopesh: 6 of each pose
      SCAR04 Scarab Archers: 6 of each pose
       SCAR05 Scarab Guard: 6 of each pose
      SCAR06 Scarab Cavalry: 6 of the one pose
      SCAR07 Scarab Mutant Cavalry: 6 of the one pose
      SCAR08 Scarab Monstrous Beast
      For this Kickstarter, I will be offering these at three pledge levels.  First, backers can choose to get one of each infantry pose and cavalry pose for $15 as a war band for skirmish games. This option will not qualify for stretch goals.
       Second, backers can choose to get an army with enough units to make a Mighty Armies army or HOTT army.  The army will include: 1 command stand (leader, musician, standard), 1 caster stand (priest + 2 guard), 2 stands of spears (6 figures), 2 stands of khopesh (6 figures), 2 stands of archers (6 figures), 1 stand of guard (3 figures), 1 cavalry stand (3 figures), and 1 monstrous beast (1 figure).  This option will qualify for the stretch goals.
       Finally, backers can choose to get one of each of the beetle packs.  This will include packs SCAR01-08 and will give backers 60 infantry, 12 cavalry, and 1 monstrous beast.  This option will qualify for stretch goals.
       Stretch Goals: As stretch goals for this Kickstarter, I will be offering Sobek Crocodile Warriors.  These will serve as mercenaries for any Egyptian themed army.

      Hi, ok so it seem having a long "put everything here" thread is not easy for moderator, I am opening a dedicated one for those WH40K orcs :)
       
      I am done with the skin pass, obviously more details to go in with brush.
      going next to get the other parts base coated I think , so I can get an overview of the overall look and color for those guys ( for now it look very green xD )

      The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is coming up on November 2.
       
      These are two figures that I sculpted for Reaper, albeit very slowly -- starting in November 2014 and ending in October 2016 (with long periods of inactivity, and other sculpting and painting projects along the way).
      Izzy "Talin" Collier drew the character designs:

       
      Reaper sells them as "Day of the Dead Cavalier" and "Day of the Dead Duchess", DHL 03822 and 03823.
      If you search for them in Reaper's online store, don't use the words "of" or "the" because those words will blank out all results.  Just look for "day dead".
      (I refer to them as "Diego de Muertos" and "Diana de Muertos".)
       
      At last, it is time to paint them. 
      I don't know whether I will use vibrant colors all over or mostly subdued (black / brown) with limited spots of color.
      I've done some online image-searches, watched the Pixar film "Coco", etc.
      The traditional flower of the holiday is marigolds (orange-yellow), so that color will be part of the palette.
      I think I will put them together on one base, but I also don't know how ambitious I'll be on the basing around them -- a bare cobblestone plaza, an altar (sugar skulls, ofrendas, etc.), or more extensive structures and hanging decorations.
       
      My first step of painting is to work out the values with blends of Black and White Brush-On Primer:

       
      Thanks for reading,
      Derek
