The Manufactorum! Sisters (more or less) speed builds

Recommended Posts

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)

 

Creature Caster

 

1x Tree Walker

 

Flames of War

 

Fallschirmjäger-Kompanie + Support Weapons

4x Battlefront StuG 3G

1x Plastic Soldier Company StuG 3G


Corvus Belli

 

A lot of Aleph miniatures

 

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)

 

CP Models:

 

Diana

 

Andrea Miniatures

 

1x Female Paladin

1x Naga Warrior

1x Gunmaid

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-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-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.

That finishes all the WWII Germans for Bolt Action. Well done, Sis. Well done. More to come later.

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.

Bowmen:

Next will be five Dust tactics mercenary girls. I don't know why I bought them. No particular reason. I just like them.

 

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

 

jykm-2pr-54a1.png

 

And some Alephs for Infinity:

jykm-2q2-76a5.png

 

jykm-2q1-1007.png

 

And last but not least - this woman.

 

She is from some kickstarter, but I have no idea for what system. But I like her.

      I just cannot get this mini to come out the way I want.  This is my second attempt, and I got just a stuck as the first time.  I finally decided to just finish it and call it done.
       
      Reaper Bones Spirit of the Forest (SKU 77184)

      My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago.  2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
      I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
      I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter.  I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
      So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.

      I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest,  so I guess they are alright.
       
      It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see?  Sloooooow.)
      But the whole unit is finally done.

       
      Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
       
      Now back to all those Stormtroopers.

      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.

      This was a quick speed paint, less than an hour. And I think the Night Spectre (Reaper Bones SKU 77099) turned out looking awesome for the amount of effort put in.

      Some basic tabletop paint jobs on Goldar the Barbarian (Reaper Bones 77047) and Dub Bullock (Reaper Bones 77027).  Their faces where pretty mangled, so I didnt want to spend a lot of time on them. 

       

       

       

       

       
      I had painted Goldar earlier, and on that one the face was fine.  SO I think I was unlucky on the above Goldar:
