Iron Wind Metals - Battletech Atrean Dragoons

Recommended Posts

I recently watched Toy Story with my toddler and the color scheme immediately made Buzz Lightyear pop in my head!  These are neat, I like the cohesive color scheme!  The green panels really pop, and neat use of insignia as well.  I also really like the glossy look of the visors.

      Today's weird mini IWM-DF-538 Sea Serpent.
       
      Cool yet weird mini. It could take down a row boat, or a small sail boat, but it is not of a scale to crush a full sized pirate ship. The whole 4 piece thing is cool, but it is easier to lose a piece that way.
       
      This mini was super fun to paint.

      It was swimming outside my window this morning...
      Does anyone know who sculpted It?

      Witty title not found.  Honestly couldn't think of one, not even a unit name.  I blame cramped up from assembly paws.  Didn't want to go with "rides again" or something, that feels too silly... or something 
       
      A while back another forum member here sent me what I've playfully called a "welcome back to the hobby" package which had a number of things in it, but specific to this thread would be five mechs - A Masakari Prime (aka Warhawk), Black Hawk Prime (aka Nova), Ryoken Prime (aka Stormcrow), Uller Prime (aka Kit fox), and Puma Prime (aka Adder).  Now that I have an extra 3' of hobbying space that I'm hoping will be reserved as a "build-out" area, I figured it was best to get that particular use started out.
       
      But first, a soft lil "farewell, but this is not goodbye" set of pics to the previous use of the space - a hobby I was involved heavily in for over five years, and will return to at some point, but for the time being it just wasn't providing much in the way of joy.  Skip the spoiler if not interested 
       
      Okay, now what we're all really here for, the minis.

      ^As previously mentioned, I have enough to make an initial star of mechs.  For those that don't know BattleTech, a star is what the clans use for their unit sizing.  In this case, it's five mechs.

      ^First three, assembled!
       

      ^Ryoken/Stormcrow

      ^Blackhawk/Nova

      Uller/Kit Fox
       
       
      The other two will see assembly once my paws stop feeling so cramped up from holding tiny, tiny pieces and cleaning many mold lines...  In short, things begin.  Oh, and odds are I'll be going with Alpha Keshik for the paintjob.  Sure, it's the "traditional" colour for them, and it's also hot rodder's delight, but eh.  Such is life :P

      This is an old Ral Partha stag that I needed the horns from. Now it is a very surprised doe. I picked it up from Iron Wind's bulk metal bin at a convention, but I can't seem to find it online.

      Here's a quick paint up of an old Ral Partha (now by Iron Wind Metals) Shadowrun figure. Nothing special, just something quick to keep my hands busy. But I like her. Scale wise, she's a bit small these days for an Orc character, but since she was on the tall side when produced, she fits in pretty well with the Chronoscope minis I typically use for SR games. I think the top part of her outfit is supposed to be chainmail. But I like to think she's a bit of a hipster orc and just crocheted herself a top to go with her hair.

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!
