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!
I was cleaning up behind my barn and found this half-buried in the dirt. Was just on the way to throwing it out when I just couldn't. So I washed most of the dirt off, and cut a base from scrap plywood I had, and away I go! I actually have a semi-solid plan. I want to knock this one out fast, first of all, so maybe it'll get done this year (ideally before spring or even March, but I know how things go). I want it to evoke a few things without quite indicating any of them. The Tyrell building from Blade Runner is a big one. The magitek factory from Final Fantasy VI is another. But I also want to maintain that primitive temple look--like a Mayan or Aztek pyramid--which the shape itself lends to. I also want it to appear as though it's either been abandoned or nearly so, and nature has started to retake it. So lots of pipes and vines and gears (see my initial bits pile) and maybe a surprise if I can keep motivated... Let me know what you think!
Ha, also noticed my little Narshe cottage in the background--it's nearly complete as far as building. That'll be for another topic though!
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!
So I have a commission to print a bunch of 37mm Type 55 Chinese AA guns in 15mm scale. Most parts are in resin to get the requisite detail.
After 6 hours printing time we have all the gun barrels and most of the cruciform bases complete (unfortunately one failed), the gun mounts and remaining cruciform bases are currently on the printer.
I'll add photos of all the parts as they're completed (I won't be assembling them though as I don't trust the postal service!)
Questions welcome ;-)
