10 pint-sized skeletons with eyeballs. Which is a bit strange as all the other soft tissue is long gone. Especially strange since the eyes are usually the first bits to go, eaten by crows (or by fish if you die at sea). Them eyeballs are scrumptious, it would seem.
The minis are from the "Halflings and Fantasy Friends" kickstarter TTcombat ran late 2018 and that was delivered some time ago. I have painted ghosts and ghouls from this line earlier. They are all very cartoony and also rather cute.
Three little swordsmen ...er, knifemen.
Three little pikes. Two have build their holes of straw and of sticks. The third of bricks.
And four archers.
10 skeletons in all, from the "RPG pledge level" that basically gave a nice assortment of different types, either 5 or 10 of each.
I used a mixture of regular paint and contrast paints on these. As always, they look better when not magnified. Some of the mould lines I simply have not noticed before, and now I see them glaring at me in the pictures. My eyesight is not what it once was.
I printed out 20mm bases for the little rascals.
Should be available from TTCombat in the future.
These models were painted the 10th and 11th of April.
This is the second of my dropfleet starter sets. The fleet represents the United Colonies of Man (UCM). After humanity was chased off the planet earth and forced to scatter to its colonies to lick their wounds, the colonies united and formed an armada to take back the home planet. These ships are the final gasp of mankind to keep from becoming nests for a truly invasive species. the game itself is a little different from Most because battles are fought in nearspace around planets. The map is a planet viewed from low earth orbit and the ships can move from high to middle and low orbits, each having an effect on the ship speed and who can attack what. The game itself is pretty fast, a starter fleet battle will resolve in about an hour for us on the rare occasions when i get to play and the sides are pretty evenly matched although they have very different play styles. TTcombat took over the license this year and saved the game from fading away and have put quite a bit of effort into new miniatures and rewriting the rules to fix problems and make the dropfleet game compatible with its companion game Dropzone. now you can run a companion game allowing the two games to interact on a limited basis which, i think adds a lot to both sides, if you can find that many players...
I decided to takes some liberties with these vessels. i wanted each ship to be distinctive and easy to spot on the game board so the grid pattern built into the armor of the ship, which is usually blacked out, i lined in white and then traced over with various florescent colors from Scale 75. The effect was not quite what I was after but it's still pretty good and certainly usable on the field of battle. The ships are a starter set of 3 crusiers (2 heavy 1 light) and 4 frigates. The base color is black with a midnight blue ghost tint and then highlighted with white and flouresents
Hope you enjoy them! I certainly enjoyed painting them!
Time to get the year started with a little space adventure! It took me about a week of spare time to get this fleet assembled and painted. Space ships are one of the few miniatures i find where less is more and although they look intensely detailed, there really isnt that much to work with.
This is an enjoyable game that I wish i had the opportunity to play more often but, time being what it is, i am limited in what i am willing to teach people to do and I get tired of always having to explain the rules. Anyway, the Scourge are a bunch of nasty alien body snatchers who have invaded earth, forcing the remanents of humanity to go hide in the colony worlds to rebuild for the re-invasion of earth. They also have some of the coolest ships! These were done mainly with airbrush work except for some of the lights and engine fire. I started with the badger metal colored primer and then sprayed the front with plasma fluid ghost tint and the back with blue ghost tint winding up with a really wonderful color shift across the minis. The last piece is a leftover Aquan dreadnought from a game called Firestorm Armada I used a slightly different color profile so it would blend with both this game and the original firestorm fleet (okay i have a soft spot for spaceships. I just wish the games would play half as cool as they look!) This is basically a starter fleet consisting of three versions of the Cruiser class and 4 Frigates. That and as I said, the dreadnought for good measure!
Thanks for looking!
First time posting some of my painted stuff here, but I'd like some feedback. These two are the halfling sorceress and pirate adventurers from TTCombat's Halflings and Fantasy Friends kickstarter.
They're my first resin models, and while fragile, they do have amazing detail. They're painted with vallejo paints, I recently got the vallejo nocturna red and skintone sets. They come with very nice guides as well.
The sorceress is meant to be holding some sort of floating light source in her hand, so I tried to shade her with that in mind.
The pirate has a teeny monkey peeking out behind her feet :D so cute
