This thread is something ... different from other works I have been done.

 

I guess it's not entirely in accordance to the board rules, so you may forgive me and accept my humble bundle of roses, choclate and other stuff that will easy your severely upset minds.

 

When I am in the mood, I am doing so many speed builds up to the point of painting (means assembly, basing and priming), that making them all into different threads I would flood the forum with an unnecessary number of threads.

 

So I will keep this limited to the building process of my different tabletop figures, armies and stuff and transfer the finished figures to their respective painting threads.

 

 

 

 

What's on the table at the moment?

 

Watchful I Studios

 

28mm Chinese Army Deal (around 100 figures and equipment)

 

Warlord Games

 

56 Soviet Russians (winter) (making M into F)

 

Raging Heroes

 

Sisters of Eternal Mercy: 10x Sisters and 10 Flying Sister plus some support units

 

Andrea Miniatures

 

1x Female Warrior (upgrading her to be a Chinese Warrior Woman)

1x Tree Walker

 

Flames of War

 

Fallschirmjäger-Kompanie + Support Weapons

4x Battlefront StuG 3G

1x Plastic Soldier Company StuG 3G

What's done and ready to be painted?

 

Flames of War

 

1x Fallschirmjäger-Zug (9 units)

1x Fallschirmjäger Kompanieführung (HQ) - different Units and support weapons.

 

Warlord Games

 

- 18 German Fallschirmjäger
- 10 German Panzergrenadiere

 

Mantic Games:

 

Kings of War Succubi Regiment (20 Succubi)

I had been informed by my superiors that I would be on readiness duty over the days leading up to my own shift – that means time for me to ready some figures.

 

I mean – Hey – I have been sitting with all those package boxes here for quite some time, so I need to get rid of them.

 

So … what have we got here?


I recently got me a unit of 20 succubi from Mantics Kings of War game.

 

I don't know what I could use them for but they looked like fun and as I have got Sophie here, she could easily make their commanding unit in a series of frostgrave games - or so. Haha.

jykm-2l8-eac7.jpg


Then I got a Tree Walker. Got her with a another shipment of used figures. Guy asked me: Wanna have her? 40 Euros?


Didn't know what to do with her, so I said: yes - gimme dat!

 

jykm-2l9-49ef.jpg

 

And last but not least: WWII miniatures for my Russian front scenario. A whole lot of Russians - the will soon be Russian girls and some units of German forces for my round up and totally burned down German battle group.


Both units are more or less unique in the gaming community at our town, so they are much fun to build and to finish.

 

jykm-2l1-4f3b.jpg


Couldn't stop myself and already started ... hihi.

 

jykm-2l2-b66d.jpg

 

jykm-2l3-7709.jpg

 

jykm-2l4-c92b.jpg


Well then - I've got until the 7th. Let's see how far I can push that ...

 

//

 

Just let me give you a quick update on the current process:

 

 

Fallschirmjäger and Grenadiere are done. I just noticed I don't have enough bases on me to finish them all. But I can finish at least 12 now.

 

I really love how every of those characters is telling his own little story and I am looking forward to painting them all one day and putting them on the battlefield for some more or less successful games.

 

jykm-2lh-3840.jpg

 

jykm-2lg-125d.jpg

 

jykm-2li-44a0.jpg

 

jykm-2lj-d740.jpg

 

jykm-2lk-5215.jpg

 

jykm-2ll-9c02.jpg

 

Treewoman is making good progress. The miniature is really huge. I am deeply impressed. Still not sure which head I want to go with. Maybe I take them both and magnetize the body to change heads whenever I want to.

 

jykm-2lm-cb53.jpg

 

And then the Succubi force. At least for those I have got enough bases, though I wonder what those holes are. Not very helpful there was no assembly manual provided with the package. Still a very easy build.

 

jykm-2la-dd70.jpg

 

Bodies ...

 

jykm-2ld-ea7c.jpg

 

Equipment ...

 

jykm-2lc-8345.jpg

 

A number of randomly evil Mini-Me's

 

jykm-2le-8969.jpg

 

And ... wait ... is that Mini-Sophie?

 

jykm-2lf-1363.jpg

 

Anyway ... that's it for now. Time to say good night.

 

Next step: Finishing the succubi and then over to the Russians. Oh ... and I found another figure I have to finish, too. Hihi. But that will be talked about later.

 

See ya tomorrow!

good progress!  Those recesses in the bases look like you can take a figure with a round base and slot it in there to make it a square base.  Maybe so you can use the same figures in games with different basing requirements?

Thanks Dilvish,

 

I thought so, first, but considering those are 20mm square bases the basing would allow only for a 10mm figure or so to be based. So I am currently a bit confused. Maybe for magnetizing or a stable stand. I don't know.

 

//

 

Anyway - here we go again:

 

Started this day cutting and cleaning the equipment:

 

jykm-2ln-e637.jpg

 

And a few hours later:

 

20 succubi - as promised - they are done. Need to do the bases now. Gnihihi.

 

jykm-2lr-be17.jpg

 

Then I had a look into my box and found CP models Diana. I got her some time ago from Bad Squiddo games on a purchase, as there were only a few left. Liked her pretty much, because she reminded me of Devola from the NieR franchise. Will make her into Devola - at least a bit.

 

As Devola in both parts of NieR is a differen person using different clothing, I consider this to be another installation of her - haha. Anyway. Got to make her ready. Means: Some Lunar Tears into her hair.

 

Guckst du hier:

 

jykm-2lo-c46e.jpg

 

jykm-2lp-0ba1.jpg

 

Looks a bit like her, doesn't it?

 

Well then - let's make some greenstuff action and see how it turns out.

 

By the way:

 

@Cyradis - We talked about it earlier - so that's what my mobile workstation looks at the moment:

 

jykm-2lq-e2f4.jpg

 

need to clean it up - haha. Yeah. Got some good memories to this one :-D

 

Next update is already on the way.

Argh - work got a grip on me earlier than I expected, so I had to pause for a moment.

 

Got the possibility to finish the first few miniatures yesterday.

 

Unfortunately I ran out of bases, so I wasn't able to finish the whole force.

 

But for now we've got all 9 Grenadiere

 

jykm-2lw-c6b2.jpg

 

jykm-2lx-d01b.jpg

 

jykm-2ly-c883.jpg

 

... 2 Fallschirmjäger ...

 

jykm-2m0-cc56.jpg

 

... Devola ...

 

jykm-2m1-d051.jpg

 

jykm-2m2-be36.jpg

 

... and all 20 Succubi ...

 

jykm-2m3-223e.jpg

 

jykm-2m4-aab6.jpg

 

jykm-2m5-38a9.jpg

 

jykm-2m6-721e.jpg

 

... ready for painting.

 

And our tree woman is making good progress:

 

Tree Woman - May not be safe for work, though it is just a tree. But a very good looking tree, I might say so.

 

New bases have already been ordered, so we will see some progress, maybe already soon.

Those holes in the succubus bases are for other Mantic minis. Their zombies & skeletons have round integrated bases. Use them how you did, looks good.

Some time ago, a rather large 28mm Chinese army arrived from Watchful I Studios.


jykm-2n5-697f.jpg

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting ... assembling miniatures like lightning.

 

jykm-2n4-be91.jpg

 

A number of figures has already been assembled and is now drying. More stuff with the next update

 

//

 

Then I was given a WWII Fallschirmjäger Company for the Flames of War Ruleset and have to assemble and paint them as well ...

 

jykm-2mo-60f6.jpg

 

jykm-2mq-98ce.jpg

 

After I repacked them to have more space at my room left (haha) ...

 

jykm-2mw-c192.jpg

 

... I started to clean and assemble them ...


jykm-2mv-bd59.jpg

 

jykm-2mu-0963.jpg

 

jykm-2mp-acf2.jpg

 

jykm-2mn-0e21.jpg

 

jykm-2mm-bb28.jpg

 

jykm-2mx-1deb.jpg

 

Then it was time to continue with the StuG. It was a rather easy assembly.

 

jykm-2mr-f486.jpg

 

jykm-2ms-2af3.jpg

 

jykm-2mt-3b59.jpg

In Japan I got me a number of Andrea Miniatures's Fantasy figures to make some ... err ... Fantasy figures out of them ...

 

jykm-2n0-d2d7.jpg

 

jykm-2my-aa1a.jpg

 

//

 

And then I got a number of ... hm ... I don't know what kind of figures those were or from which manufacturer, but them will also become Fantasy figures.

 

I did some headswaps, as I didn't like the original heads. Now they look a bit small, but maybe I will be able to make some capes in order to make them look more ... impressive.

The last week I had time to continue some of the current work and therefore this weekend will be a speedbuild and base coating weekend.

 

Let's start:

 

The first Platoon and the HQ section for my 15mm Fallschirmjäger unit is ready.

Yeah - well - I cannot stay all too long on one project. I would get dizzy as time passes :-D

 

I have "packed" a box with all the projects I currently got on the table. It looks like this:

 

jykm-2ox-ba20.jpg

 

My plan is to get everything to the state of having primed it and then I can either sell it or see what I really want to work on.

And some more stuff.

 

A wooden figure I bought in Bavaria. I really like her, so I will try to do a very decent paintjob on her ... Oh, boy - what have I done?

And the finish to all of my paratroopers. I had some of the original base coat left, so I primed them like the rest to match the base colours.

Last post for today. Has been quite a busy week and weekend. I am proud of what I achieved until now :-D Continuing tomorrow.

 

First off - a few chinese.

 

Got the command section done so far. Female general, officers, some kung fu fighters and tai chi masters.

jykm-2ps-c0b8.png

 

jykm-2pt-6267.png

 

And some adventurers for some fantasy game or pen&paper. I bought them in Tokyo at a small store in Akihabara. Therefore: A busty crusader girl, a naga with chain mail bikini and a gun maid. I don't know any pen&paper that would allow me to field them all, but well - who cares?

 

jykm-2pq-644c.png

      Hello everyone,
       
      And welcome to my weathering class.
       

       
      No. Not WEATHER - WEATHERING. So more like this:
       

       
      After having worked on some vehicles for quite some time and having recently finished some tanks in winter camouflage (check out ->here<-, ->here<- and ->here<-), I was asked to do a tutorial and explain some weathering techniques.
       
      That said, I have to be honest and want to make clear that I LOVE to overdo it, so that things pop out on the table. If that's too much for you, you need to adjust on your vehicles and stuff accordingly.
       
      As it is hard to give an overview over the topic of weathering and find THE solution to all the different approaches of aging a vehicle, house or other mechanical thing, I will use different vehicles and techniques and explain everything in order for every vehicle I work on - so maybe a technique that suits you won't be done in the first tutorial, but in a later work. So please be patient.
       
      First off: If you want to see some people doing great stuff with different models and weathering techniques, check out these channels on Youtube:
       
      ->Plasmo - Plastic Models<- ->Andy's Hobby Headquarters<- ->Doctor Fausts Painting Clinic<- ->Laser Creation World<-
       
      They may answer some questions you have and provide in-depth sight into the process of weathering a vehicle or building (which means: this tutorial is basically meaningless - haha)
       
      Anyway: Let's get started!

      When @buglips*the*goblin and I did our German Infantry thread - check out ->here<-, which resulted in the presentation of our figures ->here<-, @Glitterwolfasked for some vehicles.
       
      As I regularly work on vehicles on my Speedbuild thread - check out ->here<- I thought it might be a good idea to show what's coming out of it. So - here's some steel in between naked and half-naked girls, fantasy figures and dragons.
       
      German StuG III, used for Bolt Action (28mm)
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      German PzKpfW V Panther, used for Bolt Action (28mm)
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      More vehicles once they are finished. If wanted, I can also do a tutorial on different weathering techniques.
       
      And even if not - enjoy my work, leave like or comment if you have got anything you want to get off your chest - but please - no "nice" or "cool". Those one-liners are really not helpful.
    • By SisterMaryNapalm
      Well then ... it's done! We ... are done. After a rather short ride, I finally arrived at the end. Five minutes before lock-down I handed in my "Animals in War" painting challenge entry. As always, it consists of a small background story, together with a more or less well painted miniature.
       
      Find the WIP ->here<-
       
      I am not all to happy with it, I could have done a lot better, but it's okay. And in the end, I messed up the pictures as well. The good thing is: I could have done worse. *sigh* But well - can't help it. So, here she comes.
       
      I tried to translate the original text to English, so if there are mistakes ( I am sure there will be) feel free to correct me.
       
      As always: Feel free to comment, but if you just want to say "nice" or "cool", leave a like instead, because I value those as a nod to my participation in the forums. I really don't need "cool"s or "nice"s.
       
       
      The Light Fantastic
      She sat by the wall, held her breath and listened.
      After a while, the tripping of many feet broke through the silence.
      Carefully the warrior woman looked up. She expected to see the enemy's face at any moment. But nothing like that happened.
      Instead, she could hear a voice, sending shivers down her spine. A calm, mocking pronunciation, unmistakable and probably unique in the world.
      "Hey, Evi," the unknown speaker shouted, "You can show yourself. I know you're out there."
      She took a deep breath, smiled grimly and pressed the lamp tighter to her chest.
      Yes, of course. He knew. He wasn't stupid. Quite the opposite. He was very intelligent - considering the fact he was a baboon. Call it arrogance, but it had been a mistake of the humans to believe monkeys to be of lower intelligence.
      It was the humans who were stupid. I renewed attempts, the succeeded in raising the intelligence of the primates to a level that even they could not reach. Made a joke about it - called them "Spartavians".
      Until that day, when the monkeys founded the SAS, the Special Ape Service, and began to overrun the human centers of civilization. The humans had no chance against the highly gifted animals - and soon they found themselves in a Stone Age created by the primates.
      All in the name of nature.
      But Evi was not willing to give all the power to the very hairy attackers.
      "Come out, come out, wherever you are! What is it? Have you lost your voice?," the Spartavian asked.
      She looked at the lantern in her hand. The light was dim, it's flame almost extinguished. It had used up most of its fuel over the long time of her mission.
      She sighed, then took a deep breath and turned the handle - which actually was an ignition mechanism. It clicked into place. A crunchy sound appeared. Suddenly, the light flickered as if it had just been supplied with new life energy.
      Evi counted quietly to three, rose up a little and threw the lantern as high as she could over the wall. With an almost inaudible noise the explosive disappeared from her field of vision.
      Nerve-shattering heartbeats later the clapping sound of two hands catching an object sounded.
      "But ... that's a lantern! I always wanted to have one like that"; the monkey remarked enthusiastically. "Wonderful! It will make a great addition to my front doo ..."
      A hollow bang cut off his last words.
      Slowly the warrior woman rose from her hiding place, wiping her mouth and nose. She breathed theatrically before addressing the just blown-up enemy. "Yippieyayeh! ape-face," she spat towards the quickly evaporating cloud of smoke.
      "Evi!" With a weak plop, similar to the distant bursting of a synapse, Evi returned to reality and looked up.
      The baboon on the other side of the fence stared at her with a mentally deranged look, then shrugged his shoulders and turned away.
      "Evi! I don't like it when you play around in front of the monkey house," Mama said sternly. "What will the neighbours think of use, when they see you talking to baboons?"
      "Child, you have too much imagination," Grandma said laughing before turning to Mama. "Maybe she should watch less television?"
      "I'll suggest it to Harold," Mama nodded and took her daughter away from the monkey cage. "But now we're going to the saltwater aquarium."
      "Saltwater? Are there any sharks?" the girl asked hopefully.
      "Sharks?" Mama laughed. "No. But little whales."
      The girl's eyes widened. "Whales?" she asked in disbelief.
      A small puddle in front of them started to move. At first the water only seemed to vibrate, rippled and splashed quietly, then it exploded into a fountain.
      A huge humpback whale emerged from the seething floods and crashed onto the floor slabs of the path.
      The huge monster crawled towards them on its pectoral fins, the remains of an arm hanging out between bloody, shredded baleen plates.
      "Hello Evi," the scarred monster greeted her with a sinister pirate voice. "I have learned how to eat meat."
      The warrioress Evi pulled her knife out of the sheath. A light smile crept on her lips, waited there for a moment and vanished, making room for an answer that you could only expect from any good warrior. "And I know how to fillet fish."

      A new contest, a new entry. I am pretty late this time, but I am used to work under dire conditions.
       
      At least it's a way to get rid of my miniatures, isn't it?
       
      For this painting challenge, our topic is "Animals in War". My entry will include:
       
      a baboon
       

       
      a wall ...
       

       
      and, of course ...
       

       
      Aehm ... Rhini?
       

       
      Maybe from a bit further away?
       

       
      Thank you !

      As some of you know, @buglips*the*goblin and I paint some German Infantry of WWII for Warlord Games tabletop game Bolt Action - or another similar set of rules. You can find our WIP thread ->here<-
       
      But though the key to success is hard work, all good projects some when end somewhere. To celebrate this, we decided to set up a Show Off thread. So ... enjoy what we come up with until all of our Germans are painted ... (which will be in ten years or so)
       
      First off - the first 5 men of my winter unit.
       
      Enjoy
