  1. Another member of my Lancers squad, this is the Human Brute. I had real problems with his eyes, so I decided "It's Sci-Fi" and gave him silver implants. Really happy with how the rest of him came out though.
  2. Finally got some more of my Counterblast Lancers crew done. Here's a Human Plugger. Overall I'm pretty happy with her. Eyes could have been better, just not with me painting them....at least they are pointed close to the same direction!
  3. Here's the first guy I've painted from the Operation: Icestorm box for Corvus Belli's Infinity skirmish game. He's just a grunt I was working out some color schemes and another attempt to speed things up with tabletop painting. Had a tough time pinning him to the base (a plastic piece from Sedition Wars), required some touch-ups which is why there is a horrid dot of red that needs fixing on his back calf :p
  4. The are the first of the Counterblast figures I've completed. This BdE Bot was painted a while ago, but I never got around to basing it. Finally got that done. This guy was fun to paint. Finally an eye big enough for me to work with, and no worries about having to line it up with another one . I kept the bases simple on these as Counterblast is a skirmish game I hope to be playing before too much longer.
  5. I realized I hadn't posted all the old Shadowrun Ral Partha figures I painted last year. This is an ork woman street samurai. Like all old Parthas, her base is integral and pre-sculpted. I think I prefer the new Shadowrun aesthetic, where even orks can be kind of cute. This one is pretty grotesque. The rest of the Shadowrun pieces I painted at the same time are Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and the marvelously over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  6. This was one of several old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures I painted recently. I liked this one because he was just bizarre. He's sold as a troll bouncer. He's clearly based on classic Japanese oni, so I painted him up like one. The paint is all matte; the effects on the back of the hair are paint, not shine. Other Shadowrunners painted at the same time include: Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an ork woman street samurai, a cyber troll with reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  7. The Story - Two years ago, a friend, who used to run a gaming store, asked if I wanted all his old minis left from when he closed the store, since they were just taking up space. As I have no willpower, I said sure. He said there might be 3 or 4 Diamond boxes worth. There ended up being 9 boxes... Fast forward to last year, when the Kickstarters started rolling in. I now have even more minis I will never really have time to paint. So what to do with all these minis in the boxes? Well, I could sell some on ebay or something , but that sounds like work. So how about I give some away? I star
  8. Another great model from Infinity. I love the anime feel of this guy.
  9. Last Stand on the Icaria Plains This diorama was created for use in the Spaceship Superstar contest. Minis used are 80009: Rex, Dark Future Hero, 80010: Nova Corp:Sgt, 80011: Nova Corp:Guard, 80015: Nova Corp:Rifleman, and the discontinued Bones Ellen Stone, Cowgirl. A short WIP is here.
  10. Nothing like procrastinating on something else to get work done. So here is my progress on the Black Dragons unit from Relic Knights. Also included is their leader, Sophia Drake. Miniatures are in various stages of complete, with the one on the far left being fully completed. Sophia is not wearing a helmet, and her head is off to the side. I may need to strip it and restart - the German Gray primer doesn't work great with the light skin and pink/purple hair she'll have.
  11. This is a diorama I'm planning to submit to the Spaceship Superstar contest. It's nearly complete, but I thought I'd get you lot's opinion before I glued everything down. Hopefully the story is clear from the piece, but basically it's just a good old-fashioned showdown between a pair of outlaw-with-a-heart-of-gold types and the lawmen on some red alien planet. So without further ado: Notes: The NOVA guns and the square bit of their backpacks are just basecoated Brown Liner or black, but will stay pretty dark. Their little chest insignia need to be picked out. Rex's gloves are basecoa
  12. Here's my contest entry for the single figure Be A Spaceship Superstar contest. I was originally not going to do an entry, but then I read the premise of the contest and thought that I had the same idea about most of my sci-fi stuff; give it to Anne or paint some of it. I decided to paint up Sophie whom I acquired during the annual Reaper X-mas days of Christmas adventure back in 2011 (I think). I opted for more of a modern (dull) NMM armor. I also gave her one terminator eye. The colors I used were all Reaper MSP and include: Carnival purple, Blue liner, yellowed bone, brains
  13. COMMISSION...A little while back, I received a query from a model club/group who was interested in the purchase of my Renaissance Fair project for their club. When I gave them a polite negative reply...I informed them that if there was anything else I might be able to do for them...to please let me know. After about 4 or 5 weeks; they recontacted me with a request to build them a generic shanty type town consisting of 6 to 8 shacks and some kind of tower...they requested nice outside detail work but empty black interiors and removable tops for figures...in a size that can be used by (30-40mm)
  14. This is more of a model kit than a mini, really. But I like it a lot. The red turned out well. I went with the red instead of the usual silvery look for the grey knights. Wish I'd gotten better shots of the base. Went to a lot of trouble making those paving stones out of card stock.
  15. Ran across this today, and thought "CAV players would love to see this!"
  16. The android skeleton, horror of science and necromancy. Done almost entirely with metallic silver, gunmetal gray, and some black ink plus a little brass.
  17. Here's the pilot mini to go with the Iguana Tactical Armored Gear I posted recently. Same color scheme, roughly, as his TAG.
  18. MODEL...(Black Orks at Gnorbal Jungle Ruins = Base)...(Sci-fi squad). DATA...I have started the prep work on the base for the above titled piece... PHOTO # 1...Shows the general art concept that will be a guideline for the building of this piece. PHOTO # 2...Shows the raw (untrimmed) ceiling tile that will be the base for this piece (8" x 10") in size. PHOTOS # 3 - # 5...Shows wall section # 1...(all wall sections are resin parts from my parts box...they were made by a company called Armour Cast)...the posters on all the walls are all sized & cut to scale Warhammer 40k and other
  19. TITLE...Black Orc Squad in Ruins at Gnorbal (GW Ork Boyz)...based upon Warzone Mutant Chronicles. DATA...I am working on a squad of (5) Black Orcs that will be walking through a ruined building in the jungle outskirts of Gnorbal. This will be a diorama for a western regional contest (later this year)...but will also be my last entry in the (Spaceship Superstar Contest - Squad Category)...again for participation only. PROJECTS...Beside this project... 1. I am working on a commission piece (fantasy brothel)...sorry, no photos. 2. Ren Fair Novelty piece # 19 (Far Far Away)...on h
  20. So I got bored and went on a sci-fi kick while painting an old Mega Minis scorpion, and decided it needed to be a robot scorpion with a machine-gun tail. One of my Kickstarter IMEF Bones gave up his weapon for this cause. Not terribly happy with the body tones. I couldn't quite get them where I wanted them. However, I'm very happy with how its gun came out in the end.
  21. And here is the mini I will probably be entering in the Single Mini portion of the Spaceship Superstar contest. His casting was a bit off, and his face is lopsided, but them's the breaks.
  22. And here is Rex, Dark Future Hero, for the current Bones Beauty Contest, and maybe for the Spaceship Superstar Single Mini. "I'll be back."
  23. I am trying to get a head start on a theme game for Reapercon 2015 using the Warlord Rules and the RAGE system. I think the "monsters" can translate fairly well for what I am thinking. However, to use minis like the Nova Corp, who have ranged weaponry, can melee up close, etc... How would you translate that or What datacards would you start with to not totally imbalance the game. Issues I am seeing... using soldiers with ranged weapons isn't as "hit or miss" as archery and spears. The soldiers should hit (MAV) as frequently as knights in combat, not the 2s and 3s for ranged combat,
  24. I'm looking for a Sci-Fi game to get into, but want to avoid GW for the time being. Cost is not a factor, as I value game mechanics and sculpt quality far more. But the single biggest criterion is that the theme shouldn't be mixed (e.g. sci-fi cowboys) - I'm looking for something more traditional. Does anyone know of a game that fits these criteria?
