We just launched our first kickstarter for 3D printable, scifi terrain - It funded in two hours and stretch goals are being unlocked fast!
The set features a modular setup and has a variety of upgrades and accessories.

Due to a certain person working up my interest in Battlefleet gothic, (okay, really all you have to do is wave a new ship under my nose, its not really a challenge) I went into my archives to see what I could paint to scratch the itch. So out of the archives I dug these ancients out of hiding to go from prime to painted. I am not really sure of their vintage but they are old enough to be something I bought when I was 15 and they are actual lead GW minis, which I thought didn't actually exist! Anyway, I thought others would enjoy them. They are the same color scheme as my favorite imperium fleet (I might have a few...) and I was trying for that sharp bright color scheme. I think I succeeded but to each his own. I think these are a pair of old crusiers and a battleship but if anyone wants to try their google fu and identify them, have at!
enough said, enjoy a little fleet action on a Monday!
Presenting Screamin' Eddie, purveyor of the finest human meat to be found in all the Radlands!
Had a lot of fun painting this guy. Originally, he was one of the big Nurgle baddies from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset, but I thought he worked well as a more generic Post-Apoc mutant (they all could really).
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
Back in the "olden days" when I played 40k second edition, our game group played a lot of multi player games, and as a result, we sort of had a meta-game RPG going on with our Space Marine Chapters. Thanks to the things that happened during the games, our chapters had allies and alliances and rivalries and foes.
Sometimes, to resolve disputes, we would hold a council meeting of the Chapters so grievances could be aired, agreements come to and consequences doled out. In these council meetings, each chapter got a vote.
But a problem emerged - some players had multiple chapters of their own design, and multiple players were playing official GW chapters, which meant that some people had multiple votes, while others had to share. The solution we came up with was that for council votes, a chapter could be represented by a single fully painted miniature.
And so most of us painted up three or four minis as our vote "tokens". And here are mine from the 90s:
The guy on the left is one of my Marines Errant, which was my primary Chapter. The black and yellow guy is one of my Blast Hornets, a chapter that was declared renegade as the result of one of these council meetings. The two on the left are my voting minis, from the Fire Angels and Fire Hawks chapters.
Just before I moved away, we had a big council meeting coming up, and I hatched a dastardly plan. I bought two boxes of the cheapest Space Marines I could, and planned to paint up twenty more chapters, thus ensuring I could rule final vote. This was also going to be my parting gift - I was going to give each of the other players two of the minis.
Well, I didn't manage to do more than get those minis primed. I recently found that box of primed Space Marines, and decided to see how well I could paint one of my Marines Errant 20+ years later, using Reaper's MSPs.
And then I decided I wanted to finally finish the project
Here are the first six. On the left is a Marines Errant, and on the right is a Salamander - the other four I just painted up and threw decals on. I'll have to come up with chapter names for them later.
