Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them.
Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.
A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.
Now THIS is a Pulp Hero! An incredibly burly, fiercely-mustached Sikh with a chain-fed brass-jacketed machine gun. NorthStar UK lists him as Gagan Kayal; the American outlet Brigade Games lists him as Mohan Singh in their "Lord Curr's Company" set. Either way, a powerhouse with incredible style and devastating firepower. I roughed up the barrel of the gun with some Typhus Corrosion before painting it; the original sculpt is smoother.
His arm hair is sculpted on, and after that, I'd be remiss not to give him some good chest and shoulder hair.
The time period is fairly ambiguous to one who, like me, is not a firearms historian, so the good Mr. Kayal can work from the turn of the previous century...
to the middle of said century.
Special guest appearances by 50029, British Colonial Riflemen, 50193, Thuggee Cultist, and 50221, Nazi Zombie Officer (and his Artizan co-workers).
This will be mostly Oathmark Goblins but I've also got some of Tre's Bones orcs for the bigger warriors and also some Bones Ogres that will serves as trolls. By LotR inspired I mostly mean that they won't be bright green.
I've already painted some of GW's Fenrisian Wolves to be the Wargs.
The blond one and the little black one were inspired by my brother's dogs. My nephews totally missed the joke when they fought against these guys in our D&D game.
I'm trying to work out how to do the orcs skin. I'm trying to match the Green Ocher scheme I used on my 10mm orcs.
Second attempt was using Sepia liner as the shade color. It also has brighter highlights but the gloss sealer basically simulates that in the first photo.
On top of all that 10mm stuff, the releases of the Oathmark plastic lines (so far Dwarves and Orcs) from Northstar tempted me to start some Lord of the Rings inspired armies in 28mm. These will be for Lion/Dragon Rampant and thus each force will be 50ish figures or so. I also got some dark age miniatures from Footsore to be the Rohirrim. I'll need to look up some horse painting guides before starting them in earnest.
I'd like to keep these fairly quick to paint so I'm doing a test on 3 minis. The idea is to have basecoats, a bit of shading and some lining and then hit them with the appropriate Polyshades.
Basecoated with a bit of shading I'd like to take credit for finally doing a shield transfer but these transfers stick on before you wet and remove the backing so there isn't the usual process.
With Polyshades added. Tudor (black on the non orcs, a mix of tudor and walnut) If anything I think they're are still a bit bright. Maybe paint them darker or mix up the tutor can more. Hmmmmmm.
These three are from the Northstar Military Figures Skeleton Set, meant for the D&D game I found myself DM'ing after 10 years, lol.
My photo skillz are suffering more than ever it seems.. Here is another try with different lighting:
They are very finely detailed and great fun to paint. Thanks for looking and C&C is as always very much appreciated.
