Demonworld Magic Users

Managed to get some much needed magic users painted up for my warbands. These are Demonworld figures for the Blighthaven Questing Heroes pack (available here https://www.15mmskirmishsupplies.co.uk/product/questing-heroes )

Ion Age Knights

Some Old Retained Troopers from Alternative Armies

As some background to the colour scheme I've used here, back in the days when Ebay was only an auction site for amateurs, I picked up a few 28mm versions of these lads, all sprayed a golden colour with a couple of highlights. I always meant to repaint them but never got round to it and they had quite a few battles. So when I found their little brothers in my lead pile it was obvious I had to replicate the colour scheme! 

Happy the way they have come out, especially how well the backpacks have appeared!

Slap! Miniatures Space Knights

Back in the distant past (1993) the Grim Dark Future of mankind wasn't quite so grim and dark....

The Things We Do

Received a strange look from my wife this morning as she came downstairs to find me at the breakfast table with a coffee basing a load of small Alien minis. 

I was more surprised that she was surprised!

A Picture Can Lie!

This looks like a very busy workspace, but in fact it has filled up due to the lack of available time/energy to work there. My focus has wavered slightly so that I have a few projects on at the same time moving slowly along! 

Space Knights from Splat! Miniatures are one session from the finish line. I have Sci-Fi buildings from Warbases and Scotia Grendel, a fantasy ruin from Stonk terrain and at the side waiting patiently part of an Orc Army for the 15mm Fantasy Facebook group painting project. 

The end is in sight for some of these however!!

Blue Moon Nevis

I've finished my Blue Moon Nevis. I don't see too many of the Blue Moon Range on the web, so I thought I'd get some done (for good or bad!)

I thought I'd experiment a little bit with these guys with an ink wash instead of layers and trying to put some speckle on their backs and legs to break up the uniform blue skin. That's worked OK for a trial. I can't help but feel, now that I've finished them, that the ammo packs and shoulder pads have come out striking but plain. It looks quite nice standing above the table though, so maybe I just need to get them in a game and enjoy them!

Available in the 15mm Skirmish shop Here as I'm sure you can do better!
