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!

Testing Concrete Effect Spray on Amera Ruins.

I've had these pictures for a few weeks, but I'm only getting round to posting them now. At the time Targe at Kirriemuir Wargames Club was a couple of weeks away. this was to be my second show trading, and after SKELP @ Forfar I had decided to by some display shelves. But what exactly to put on them?

Critical Mass Astagar Fighters

Managed to get some paint brushes out over the last wee while and paint up some Critical Mass Astagar Fighters (now produced by Ral Partha Europe). The default snake\serpentine colour that springs to mind for me is green (of some shade), but mindful that I should be painting slightly brighter than my 28mm for 15mm and that I'm still learning, I hit the interweb with the broad Google of "snake" images. The colouration of the Milk snake really struck me, so I've based the paint job on that. Really enjoyed painting them.

[Shameless self plug - they are available here ]

Now to see what next lies in the already growing 15mm lead mountain....
