24519: Simba and 15mm escorts from The Worlds in my Head

Recommended Posts

This is my first foray into 15mm Sci-Fi, redoing The Worlds In My Head in 15mm so I can fight larger battles with more vehicles.  Here's the Nathi.

 

The troopers are by Eureka Miniatures, the vehicles are kitbashed toys, bikes are CAV parts and the walkers are the "Simba" CAV.

      When I was working on other figures and had some colours spare I would paint theses. The phots aren't the best, even thought they looked good on the phone (grumble, grumble). I have tried to make the bases look as if they were on a carpet. This was a quick job and mostly involved stippling some titanium buff and raw umber together. Then just added some patterns and colour.
       
      I worked on the figures seperate from the chairs. This caused some annoyances when I rubbed off some paint, but I did allow me a better painting overall. 


       
       
       
      The Flute and the Piano
      I finished the flute first. Checking Eureka Miniatures, he is Frederick the Great and the pianist is C. E. Bach. Frederick came with some nice dogs, I added them to my slowly growing collections which I will use at some time to create a diorama of a dog village or something. (Currently I have a Tamiya German Shepard and some small dog which are a larger scale from the farmyard animals set, the dogs from Frederick and the milkmaid set from Eureka, some War-games Foundry dog that came with hunting gentlemen set, giant wolf from Reaper). 
       

       
      The String Instruments
      The photo makes the hair look more green/blue than it actually is. There is some metal filling too much space under the arm holding some of the string instruments, I removed what I could do quickly and the other parts I just painted a dark colour that would fit. In the end I am happy with how they came out.

      A return to the Weird West setting! These ladies are wonderful townsfolk, or suitable for magic-users or fancy rogues. The young lady in orange is from Eureka (one of their Hyde Park Hypostyle figures if memory serves), while the ones in yellow and pink are from Reaper's Victorians (80068. The Victorian gentleman is still in progress, on the back burner). 
       
      More angles, but the sun was not quite right
       

       
       
       
       

       
      And a guest! 80065, the Physician.

      Eureka has a line of "Boiler Suit Apes." In this line, there is a collection of cosmonaut APES IN SPACE. What, am I made of stone?! Of course I had to get them. 

      Uplifted apes are often used in the spacefuture as cheap, durable labor during the terraforming process--under the watchful eye of the Earth government, of course. Many work with bioengineered soil-tilling arthropods. Here are some scenes of a few of them overseeing the cultivation of a Neptunian moon. The gourdfruit trees are already coming along nicely. 

      There are some rumors that the Space Apes have an underground separatist movement, resentful of their proper status as second-class citizens, and that they might try claiming some of their exoplanetary habitats as their own birthright, bought with the sweat of their low, beetling brows and the strength of their hairy, hairy arms. But who would believe such wild tales of our loyal, friendly helpers? 

      Anyway, here's Taskforce Leader Aperella. A Charisma implant helps her keep her workers in line.



      And the Stakhanovite albino neogorilla Bonzo. He has the strength of ten men and the work ethic of at least five! Look at those bared teeth. That's the smile of job satisfaction. 



      And here's Charlie. Always a curious fellow, that one. Chief Arthropod Wrangler. It's uncanny the way he can almost communicate with those buggers. 



      Meet Diana! Diana oversees the environmental controls. It's a little warmer than the humans like in here, Diana, and the humidity is off by about 10 percent! She's doing her best, though, bless her. Keep up the good work, Diana! 




      And last but certainly not least, Eddie. We've tried to get him to stop shambling, but old habits, you know! Eddie is a good worker, but did you know he actually failed his intelligence test? The psychologist administering it said the only way to score that low was to deliberately *try* to flunk! Poor, simple Eddie. 

        

      And here's the whole gang! 
      Wait--why do they have the emergency gauss rifles? And what's Cosmo doing here? W...What are you doing, fellows? ...Pals?


       
      Edit: New arrival, Gordy!

      Eureka has a two-pack of figures in their Pax Limpopo line called "Hench and Coach," and they are the most corpulent double-chinned British spherical bastards imaginable; Dickensian caricatures after the style of Nast or Tenniel. I had to have them. Didn't bother affixing the coachwhips. They are about halfling-sized in 32mm scale, and walrus-like giants in 15mm scale. You should be able to hear a bassoon-and-tuba soundtrack when looking at them. 

      I'd also painted up some minis from Artizan's "Thrilling Tales" line: Miss Greentree, Private Campbell, and Tankie Bob. Each of them is full of personality. Greentree I painted as an Agent Carter-type. Campbell was where I found tartan is not my forte. Could have come out worse. Bob is a scruffy fanatic and I love the sculpt. I figured Ungentlemanly Warfare was a good setting for the three of them.

      Realized my collection had some major lacunae in world cultures, and needed more pre-modern Mesoamericans! So I got these Aztec feather suit warriors from Eureka. Tried using mostly GW contrasts on them; can report that the red and blue work AMAZING. 

      You can tell the fella in green is in charge, both by the high-status turquoise cloth and by the rad shield. I had fun with these.
      Gender diversity is important, so I also picked up Caroline here from Antediluvian Minis' Lost World line. She is shown with a mini-Couatl from the Familiars 2 set (77196). More pix in the spoilers box.

       


      And if there are macahuitls involved. I'd be irresponsible not to include the very representative of the Winged Serpent on earth! (Turnaround below.)

       
      Now for some invaders! I wanted some conquistadors for Weird West purposes (Zamacona-types as in "The Mound," ghosts of Cibola-quests, etc.)
      Picked up a set from Eureka of the most recognizable and armored. Painted as fancy as possible,
      An unexpected Other from beyond the bounds of the known world, with impossible weapons and unheard-of beasts.





      This seems like quite  the problem for our Aztecs! 
      Well, early-modern-era problems require early-modern-era solutions. Nanahuatzin, the Chancred God, isn't the most glamorous in the pantheon, but he *gets the job done.* 


       
       

      (This is Antediluvian's Pestilent Lich; both he and the Conquistador Zombies are from Antediluvian's Conquest of Maztlan line. What a magnificently rotted and pustule-ridden sculpt.)
       


      Backgrounds and props include GreenStuffWorld rollers in clay and foamboard, Hydra's Saurian Idol, those Nolzur's cannons, and a skull from RAFM. I enjoyed this one a lot. C&C welcome!
