  1. Just for a bit of fun I got this set from Perrys and thoroughly enjoyed painting them. The size and closeness of the lens does them no favours. Thanks for looking
  2. Feral George (Onumo, Hippoxus Warrior) Mierce Miniatures This chap was finished a couple of days ago, and he'll wrap up my builds for this year. As was the case in 2017, I've only managed this one bit of figure modelling this year and, also like last year, he's from Mierce miniatures, who are by far my favourite producer of gaming figures. Officially, he's Onumo, a Hippoxux warrior of the Byzantii army, but I like to think of him as George, everyone's favourite camp pink hippo, who's clearly really let himself go since his Rainbow days. Technically, he's 28mm sc
  3. More usual fare with these chaps, they are the 1st battalion 1st Legier as kitted out for the Waterloo campaign. There are also two Brigade commanders based for the Great Game in Glasgow next June. I'd normally put a cuple of additional figures on the base and make a little vignette but the game wants single based figures for commanders. Once the game is over they will be rebased. Thanks for looking.
  4. These are a little different to my usual output but I have been building lots of units for the fictitious Very British Civil War(VBCW) for a number of years. We have fought may engagements in and around South Yorkshire as large multiplayer games with out tongues firmly in cheek. Anyway when the war broke out the crew of HMS Sheffield were in Sheffield to march through the town and meet local bigwigs. The uprising in the city put a lot of pressure on the officers and crew who had no easy way of returning to their ship, So far they have stuck together and retained their discipline b
  5. Hi, can anyone recommend 28mm figures for British Infantry and Indians from the French and Indian war? May be some French and Civilians too? I do not need large numbers but I am looking for good quality figures. TIA Ingo
  6. These a These are my latest finished figures. They have been on the to do pile for a while as I was side-tracked by some English Civil war figures but I'm back onto Napoleonics now. Thanks for looking.
  7. Having enjoyed building the Rubicon CMP truck I decided to try one of their armour kits and settled on the Crusader, which has long been one of my favourite tanks. You get a load of options in this kit, late MkI, MkII, MkIII, MkI/II close support or MkII/III anti-aircraft so there's a lot of parts in the box: Lovely well produced instruction leaflet: Finally there's a generic British armour decal sheet: What to build? Decisions, decisions...
  8. After my ruminations on 1/56th scale models a few weeks ago, I decided to get one and have a closer look. Having watched lot of how-to videos on YouTube, it seemed that Rubicon Models were probably the current leaders in the field. I'm a sucker for WW2-era trucks and they have a CMP truck in their range, so that was a fairly easy decision. The kit cost £18 plus £1.80 p&p from Plastic Soldier Company, so they're not cheap. 28mm armour generally seems to come in at or above £20. For your money you get a very well produced package, starting with a glossy end-opening box with a ni
  9. As a change from the endless Napoleonics, I seem to be painting, I painted up these chaps for a new came to my club, Pikemans' Lament. First up are some Heavy cavalry, these are Empress miniatures and are lovely castings. Next are the Dragoons, which are Warlord Miniatures, and a mix of plastic horses and metal chaps Another chunk of stout Dragoons The bases are temporary, as I haven't yet decided the best way to bunch them together. The Dragoons feel wrong but that is what the rules suggest. I have two more units of Dragoo
  10. I've been working away a lot and if possible I take my paints and figures with me. I realised that I had finished a fair few figures recently so as it was such a lovely day I sat out in the garden and got them all based. These are the two remaining Squadrons of the Guard Lancers, these are the famous Polish Lancers . I posted the Dutch Squadron a while ago. These stout chaps are part of the 8th Chasseurs a Cheval and are the newly release plastic figures that Perry are moving over too. Thanks for looking
  11. Hi folks, [edit] Some more Tyranids have appeared I bought a little Games Workshop game a couple of weeks ago about Space Marine scouts being eaten in the jungle by horrible Genestealers - it's called Lost Patrol and is a rework of a much earlier game, only this time with more plastic models in the box. Two weeks later, or thereabouts I've finished building, painting and photographing the jungle denizens, although not the scouts yet. They are basically Giger's Aliens with six arms I've tried a couple of schemes for Genestealers and Tyranids before and decided this time I wanted someth
  12. I've been catching up on my basing, I job I hate. So I can get these braves chaps into their carry box and hopefully onto the table soon. I was intending to take part in a giant wargame next year to try to get a Guinness World Record But that sadly looks like a non-starter, but it did at least get me painting in bulk again. Next up some more Guard Lanciers and then some English Civil War figures for Pikemans Lament. Allons mes braves
  13. Hi folks, I've had a bit of a gap in the middle owing to family holiday, work, etc. but I've finally finished the skeletons I started at the very end of January. They're Games Workshop 28mm models, and they're a bit long in the tooth now. There's nothing really wrong with them but they don't have quite the poses and detail of the newer stuff. The biggest issue is that as they're designed to rank up on square bases they have rather restricted poses, so they're not a very diverse unit. I've tried to build in a bit of variety with the various optional parts, a
  14. Hi folks, After finishing off another project after Christmas, I built a box of skeletons as light relief. I've got 5 skeletal horse and 10 with spear, plus a big monster (Mortarch) which isn't quite cleaned up yet as it's so complicated. I finally got some primer on the foot troops at the start of the week and have been busily painting them: I'm being good and working in a batch of ten, but I only took pictures of half of them as I hadn't blacked out the metals on the rest. They're relatively old models and I got them a
  15. This is my last finished build of 2017, and represents the only bit of proper figure modelling I've managed this year (there've been a couple of 1/35 figures as companion pieces to AFV builds, but I don't count them). I picked him up when Mierce had a 30% black friday sale, but wasn't intending to start him until next year. However, due to the excellence of the sculpt and the minimal amount of clean-up required, I couldn't resist getting him together and painted. As the name almost implies, he's essentially an anthropomorphised walrus carrying a big harpoon. He's nominally 28mm scale, but
  16. I've been building a small force for Sharpe Practise. I instead of using some figures from an existing army, I went for something a bit left field. The Perry figures are beautifully moulded and posed and I wish I had the skills to do them justice. I have about 40 infantry and some Camel Corps chaps, but these are the latest figures to traverse he painting table, Dragoons and gunners. If anyone is interested I'll photograph the whole force.
  17. Hi all, Sorry I've not been around much for the last month or so, a lot going on with work, travel, and a project that I can't talk about yet. But I did find time to paint some figures over the past week which has been very good for the soul. These are one of the two teams from Shadespire, which is a Warhammer Fantasy/Age of Sigmar off-shoot involving tactical combat with miniatures and cards. The game is very good and the figures are possibly even better. They're single-pose clip fit which means that they're quite easy to paint disassembled if you take car
  18. Since we've got a shiny new figure section on the forum, I thought I'd take the opportunity to post some old figure builds from the last few years. I'll start with this one, a resin armoured chaos snail from Scibor Miniatures, finished back in 2012. In this case it wasn't really a build, as it's one solid lump of resin, apart from the blade on the head, which was separate. It's nominally 28mm scale, but as can be seen from the shot with the paint pot, it's pretty big. In fact they do another version of this sculpt with a saddle on the shell and an ogre rider. Paint was Vallejo for the mos
  19. Hi there, another one from my collection. Another favorite sculpt of mine, though the quality is pretty low. It just captures my sense of humor perfectly. Sculpted by Stefan Niehues. Was given for free when buying a ticket for "Mini-Art-Con" in 2009 - a local miniature painters event. Only painted this one this year after several years without touching a brush. I am really proud of this rare little miniature and how it came out. A piece that will stay in my personal collection for sure. 28mm and lots of moldlines - too many to get them all. Coolminiornot, if you want to v
  20. I picked up a couple of Mierce Miniatures sculpts last January, when they had a sale on, with the intention of getting them both done pretty quickly. Inevitably that didn't happen and Gurrir here has been sitting half painted for around 6 months. I'm trying to get a few half finished projects done before the end of the year, and he was at the top of the list. He went through a few colour changes before I settled on the rhino hide grey. Not the most inspiring of paint schemes, but the blood adds a bit of life to it. And before you ask, he left the back half of his loin cloth in the
  21. Hi all, Yet another WIP thread, because I have no self control. I bought the new version of Lost Patrol from Games Workshop last week because my daughter and I enjoyed the demo game we played in the shop. It's a tactical tile-laying game where a bunch of (dead) Space Marine scouts have to (fail to) get to da chopper and escape (nope) from the horrible monsters. It feels a bit unbalanced but the play is still really interesting. And it comes with five scouts, which are OK models, and twelve genestealers which are awesome. I had to assemble the figures the same night so we could
  22. Hi all, I finished up another group of Tyranids on the eve of Armies on Parade - here are my two Tyranid Warriors and a Tyranid Prime which is a slightly better/fiercer one in game terms. Hence I have stood him a bit higher (click for bigger/more) I wasn't totally sure about these on the sprue, but they have a lot of personality and end up fairly large models too. Posing the weapons was quite fun - you don't have a lot of options for the lower arms, especially with the guns, but the upper arms and heads can be fiddled with to create some interesting po
  23. Hi folks, After the Flesh Hound I painted one of the angels - these are probably the reason I bought the box - it's crazy that you can have something so big and airborne suspended on a skinny bit of plastic scrollwork. Latest bit of this project is the Flesh Hound of Khorne: I've been doing mainly figure modelling since we moved house - my office (and modelling room) is really too cold with the window open at night to paint comfortably. So instead I've been either cleaning up parts or painting things I'd already primed while sat in front of the TV. I posted some of this in anothe
  24. Hi all, I'm never sure where to post figures - I've had a thread in the Figures subforum but it looks like finished ones should be here? Anyway, I've been painting a bunch of figures from the recent Games Workshop Age of Sigmar box. As usual the starter set is quite keenly priced for what you get, the individual figures and squads are eye-wateringly expensive though. In reverse order of completion, here are: Khorgos Khul, Mighty Lord of Khorne (chief bad guy) Stormcast Eternal Prosecutor (flying hammer-chucking goodie) Five Bloodreavers (junior bad guys) Sto
  25. Hey guys, i would like to show you my first at 2016 and the very first figure I have always loved Warhammer (does not matter if "classic" or 40k) and these 28mm figures are quite cute little gems (the cast is amazingly well done by Citadel). And because i love wolves, my favourite unit are the Space Wolves Well, here is the first of them - i have not used any Warhammer rules for painting, just painted it as i like (speaking about colour scheme and weapon chose) So here is the grey hunter, armed with plasma pistol and bolt pistol. I have tried some new techniques to me and obviously have
