So I finally fell into the temptation and got my first ground based sci fi minis!(I do have spaceships.)
A Cataphract, conquerer , and a halberd by Reaper minis came in with my horsman today! Sadly the halberd is missing a piece so it may in end up being returned.
So my first order of business was a small conversion to the cataphract
And the conquerer has donated the necessary parts for said conversion, specifically his smaller missile pods.
A bit of work with an exacto knife removed said weapons.
And a bit more exacto work to make a spot for the pods on the Cataphract.
Some super glue to assemble the cataphract and voila! It is time for paint!
And don’t worry about the Conquerer, I have a conversion in mind for it too. It just might not be a true mech when I’m done.......
More sci-fi stuff to come soon I hope!
And maybe just maybe I’ll try to make a backstory for these guys.
Thankyou for looking!
This is a Cataphract mech by Reaper minis from Cav with added missile pods from a conquerer mech.

Model Masters paints,
Man! I didn’t realize I used that many colors on this thing!
Enough about paint! Time for pictures!
I have enjoyed painting this up and even got to try something new.
Thankyou for looking and feel free to offer constructive critiques!

Started these at the same time I did the Middenheimers. One is based on Astrid from Skyrim, the other on an old coworker whom the sculpt resembled. Victory two of the challenge thus far.
Overall I'm happy with how they came out. again I went with a simple grey stone base in case I rebase them in the future.
"Dine and dash, eh?!"
"The Dark Brotherhood eats for free!"
The cloak could've come out better, but I'm more concerned with clearing the Shelf of Incompleteion currently.
So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released. They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family. Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet. I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small 25mm sized figures. More to come later as I finish them!
FINALLY back in a WarShip frame of mind, so here we go! First up is the Essex-class CDS Architeuthis:
Up next is Alliance Naval Star, consisting of the Nightlord-class CSR Lynn McKenna, Essex-class CSR Marshal Ney and CSR Mulhacén, Whirlwind-class CSR William Adams, and Fredasa-class CSR Kutkh.
