  1. Here's another bit of ordnance - a WW II Japanese Type 97 Shinhoto Chi Ha Tank from Tamiya. 1/35 scale, all plastic, with flexible tracks. The kit dates back to the 80s. Fairly easy cleanup and assembly. Paashe VL airbrush and Tester's Model Master, et al, paints. Colored pencils for the paint chips, scratches, abrasions, etc. Reaper acrylics for the various oil, gas, dirt, and dust stains. Finished off with chalk pastels (old school). The base is a cutup, sanded, and stained oak plank from Home Depot. Name plate from a local trophy shop. Now everyone can join in the fun in RC's Ordnance Category. Qs and Cs welcomed. Glen

    Reaper mini Stone Golem

    Hey there my second submission today is my take on the mighty Stone golem...Now it is unusual! I looked up the brightest most unusual stone I could find and found a red white and bone pebble! I emulated this on the golem I hope you like it! It was the red pebble although my version is a lot lighter!
  3. About 3 or 4 weeks ago I remember that there were some new models available on the bones page, some of which I took a particular liking to: there were two fat zombie creatures which I can only think of comparing to Warhammer 40k's Nurgle Great Unclean One (only much much smaller). Among these models which vanished was the Dragon's Don't Share set, which has reappeared. I was just wondering if anyone knew why these models were removed or when they will return and be available for purchase?
  4. Heyguys, been a long time since I last posted. I recently decided I want to build a diorama involvingminiatures and at last one muscle car model. I'm not certain of what scale model car I should beleaving toward. I want one of my characters to conceivably be able to drive said car.
  5. I've been poking around the possibility of aircraft and planes more or less compatible with 28mm miniatures. It looks like the most common airplane model scale by a large margin is 1/48, which seems close enough, I think. Unfortunately, information on Amazon is sometimes incomplete and possibly inaccurate. I've found two models of B29 Superfortresses, both claiming to be in 1/48 scale. One says it is 9" by 7". The other says its dimensions are 30"x15"x10", which seems a bit odd, but one of the reviewers claims it is almost 2 feet long and 3 feet wide. Is either of these actually close to a 1/48 scale, and would either look about right with 28mm figures?
  6. Ok since BugLips broke the ice with his Enterprise I thought people might be interested in a kit I am working on right now. The kit is a repro by Polar Lights of the original Aurora POA Dr. Zira kit. Box looks like this I started out with the head and face as this was the part I wanted to make sure was the best overall. Here are the initial blending shots of her face. I then blocked in the hair and shaded / highlighted finally I did the eyes and tried to soften a few blends so the final result looks like this Please feel free to critique in any way. All comments welcome! Next I will be working on a few of the "set" pieces as this kit has a nice base that has a few pieces of furniture and such. I will be adding to here as I go. Paint On!
  7. I received an email newsletter from CoolMiniOrNot just before, and in it I noticed this chap: https://www.coolminiornot.com/shop/54mm-plus-category/industria-mechanika/adrian-smith-s-frankenstein-1.html This seemed rather familiar: it is very (very) similar to Anvall the Thrice Damned from the Reaper store. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/anvall/sku-down/01521 The sculptors are different, and the Frankenstein version claims it's a 3D printed design which was the winner of competition to realise a sketch by the artist - but it just seems so similar in style and pose, equipment everything. There's also passing similarity to this one from Games Workshop: http://www.games-workshop.com/en-AU/Nurgle-Chaos-Lord So I guess I'm curious as to whether there are thoughts from others out there as to whether the variations are enough (ie the devil in the detail) or if there is a borderline IP issue for the artistic design?
  8. So, as a surprise and celebration of my Githyanki character finding a proto-spelljammer to work on in our D&D game, my husband gave me the slightly early birthday present* of this resin ship model: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.gelaendestuecke.de/onlineshop/product_info.php%3Finfo%3Dp359_schiffsbausatz-no--2.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dschiffsbausatz%2Bno%2B2%26client%3Dsafari%26hl%3Den I've not worked with resin before, and I haven't done much model building either. The instructions are surprisingly minimalist for a German product (Complete text: "We recommend water-soluble colors and glutens. You find colored examples under www.Gelaendestuecke.de") Can I ask people who have experience with ship models, resin terrain, etc., what they would do? Please forgive my ignorance and inexperience. Here are my thoughts: The stern end, quarterdeck, whatever, has a few dings, chips and bubbles, so I guess I shall be getting some green stuff to fill in bits. There is a hole in the deck piece (a flat piece separate from the hull) for the mast, but it is not as large as the dowels supplied. I plan to drill it out a bit, maybe extend it all the way through the deck (which is about 3/16" thick). I am thinking that not gluing the mast in but making it removable will make for easier storage and less risk of breakage. But in that case I may wish to drill the hole a little into the hull itself for added stability. Or is this foolish and should I just glue the whole thing solidly together? Rigging and sails are not included and it's not entirely clear how they are put together. Can anyone point me to a reasonable pattern? I have linen cloth suitable for the sails and linen bookbinding thread that should do well for miniature rope. Despite what they say, I think I would like to use epoxy to hold this model together. Should I pin it in any way? This looks like it will be fun, but I would like to do it right. Any advice from the seasoned and experienced would be deeply appreciated. *precioussss
