  1. I love painting up the Inquisitor scale models. There are lots of opportunities for conversion and custom work too, at that scale.


    Most of them are really sweet - particularly Brother Artemis and the imperial guard models.


    If I can find a sale or a deal on them, I usually got for 'em.



    my trouble right now is getting the arms in the right position with the sword...


    im probably just gonna put em near position, then pin the sword, and make a slightly longer forearm..lol

  2. It's amazing how easy it is to get hooked on mini painting isn't it?


    All it took was a guy I was dating at the time to buy a bunch of minis, hand them to me and ask me to paint them because he had no fine motor coordination due to a mild birth defect.


    I sat down and started painting. That's all it took. ::D:


    Now some three years after touching my first mini, I'm still painting.


    That mini looks great too! I have a thing for dancing Harem Girls. ::D:



    my wife got me started... sort of.. we had some minis that we had purchased a while back, but we didnt really want this one guy we know to paint them, my wife wanted to do them herself... well, she bought paints and stuff, and after 3 months it went the way of her Bass Guitar, her Short Bow, and her painting (canvas stuff)... in other words, it went into the gaming room never to be heard from again...


    i got into painting because i was tired of people not painting what i wanted... i couldnt express what i wanted to them to paint though, so its all my fault..




    back to your mini, looks great, "shake shake shake senora, shake your body line!"

  3. hmm... well, whats currently being worked on:



    just got this guy, putting him together.



    02440 : Quinn Rowan, Highlander

    02637 : Marcus Starsong, Young Wizard

    02909 : Nienna, Female Elf Ranger

    02835 : Jolie, Female Scribe

    14133 : Celestial Lion


    so thats it.... man though, that lion was a friggin joy to paint..lol... hes based up on the normal warlord base he came with, i may do some base work on him, im not sure... but man he was fun to paint.. (havent painted animals before, i loved it)


    the other minis with the exception of the inquisitor guy are in various stages of finish.. quinn for example has most of his base colors on, as does marcus, although i took off the staff, im going to put a spear in his right hand, as soon as i find one i like.. jolie has her base colors on, and im slowly working on her... nienna.... wow... man shes hard to nail a scheme down for... hah

  4. yeh... they do tend to be a bit expensive, but i'll probably only buy this one..lol... maybe one or two others, they are definately taller than standard DHL or warlord sizes... its about as tall, or a little taller, then the BS Mantis from CAV

  5. has anyone else been bitten by the urge to buy one?



    lemme first say that the mini is pretty well made, and the one i bought, is totally metal, except the base (which is plastic).


    so far im enjoying it, its a very advanced model though (for me) as the majority of the "mini" is going to need pinning and glueing, and i may use some quick steel is small parts to sure up some sections


    any one got any experience with these minis...


    when i finish mine, i will post it, and hopefully my photo fu will be strong..lol

  6. As mentioned in the "Max Protection" post; I am sending a few mini's out into the world as part of geocaching. However, a few of them have slot bases that I want to secure much better. As it stands they are super glued in, but my concern is that there is alot of wiggle room between the walls of the base and the mini insert; therefore it can wiggle back and forth and the glue bonds broken. So I am fishing for ideas on how to secure them. I was thinking Green Stuff to fill and secure them. However, can anyone give a better alternative? (preferably one that doesn't require me to muscle the mini out of the slot, which as I said, is glued in)

    i use quick steel... the working time isnt that long, because it turns scalding hot after a minute or so... howver it hardens up after a few hours and completely sets in a day... it shouldnt damage a base

  7. well, casketworks is only useful every so often.... everytime ive ordered online ive gotten one...so im pretty set til my next order.....


    the easiest thing if you prefer ordering at your FLGS would be to use the online store as the catalogue, then just write down the numbers and bring em to the store... lots easier.
