I haven't done too much gaming lately, and what I did I can't really blog about. I have been painting, though... and here are some of my latest brushings or brush victims or whatever.
|War of 1812 US Artillery - repaints of Minifig Austrian artillerymen|
I believe the plumes should be yellow. Well, we all make mistakes.
|War of 1812 US Regiment of Light Artillery (Minifigs)|
An elite outfit
|"Say Hello to my little friend!"|
US coastal artillery with a naval crew. I call it a 50-pound Columbiad.
(Frontier naval gun crew and a cannon from an unknown line of ship parts.)
|Paper houses - as cheap as they come and convertible!|
Here it is, relatively intact.
|Here it is as a simple fixer-up-er.|
|Here's the conversion! It a neat little 15mm card house where the intact version|
fits over the bombed out one.
If you're interested, send me a note with your e-mail address and I'll send the plans.
|Gandalf, Bilbo, and the informing raven from "The Hobbit"|
(Games Workshop's Warmaster Battle of Five Armies set)
|GW Warmaster goblin shaman with an idol of somebody or other.|
The idol's head is from an ancient GW goblin in 25mm
|Another Warmaster special - the Giant!|
It's a little diorama by itself. The giant is stomping on a two-wheeled cart and...
|... has just passed over a cowering human. That little guy is molded right on the base!|
|Frying Pan & Blanket AWI mounted Militia...|
set for use in our upcoming Imagi-nations campaign as Rob's dragoons.
|FP&B German/Hessian infantry painted as Prussian Freikorps|
The Freikorps facinate me so these will be the Fredonian Freikorps
in charge of dirty tricks and larceny. They'll be made up of guardhouse
and jail sweepings as well as other swamp wildlife.
|FP&B Continental line infantry painted as an AWI loyalist unit...|
Line troops for Rob's army. I may insist they be called "Regiment Hohn."
|Rob's going to use dismounted Indian/First Nations warriors for most of his light infantry.|
More FP&B from the Plains Wars range.
|FP&B mounted Indians - Rob says he'll use them like Cossacks|
|FP&B again - The Fredonian Dragoons. I recently remounted them on smaller|
bases and I think they look better as a tighter unit.
|Rob's FP&B dismounted militia to be used as skirmishing riflemen.|
|From RAFM, air transport for the Imperial Guard's helicoptor-borne troops.|
|Now for something completely different,,,|
Reaper Miniatures "Anime Girl" 'cause I'll use ANYTHING for Traveller!
|Reaper again - goblin pirate with a blunderbuss... looks like my friend, Tyler.|
|Reaper's gargoyle or something that hasn't had its morning coffee.|
|One of Katie's favourites - Reaper's Steampunk witch.|
I try to do a lot of good shading and ink work on these types of figures.
|I don't remember the name of the manufacturer, but I thought it would be useful|
as a female adventurer in my Traveller campaign.
|"Y'all in a heap a' trouble, boy! Y'all fergot t' paint ma wristwatch."|
Reaper's modern sheriff
I'll paint the watch once I'm off the chain gang.
|Reaper's Sasquatch... appearing nightly on the Learning Channel.|
|Another Katie favourite... Reaper again... Femme Fatale spy...|
again, plenty of inking and shading.
|Okay, here's the deal; all good Traveller adventures start in a bar, right?|
Reaper finally made some "Alien Exotic Dancers" for the bar, which will be
called "Club Salacious" from now on. Here's a dancing Grey - we'll call her
|Another dancer from the back. Note her mouth is in her chest and her head has one BIG EYE.|
"A big hand for Suzie aaDringnrrrrrrrr!"
|Yes, she has green hair... and three breasts. What are you... a rube?|
Penelope Smythe-(choke/squeek/crack/sneeze). Spelled as it sounds.
|I did an update on the Grand Elector Rufus I . He's seen here with his aide, Captain Spaulding of the Saxe-Fredonian|
Engineer Corps and a engineer NCO, Sergeant Chickolini.
"That IS the most ridiculous thing I ever hoid!"
|The Grand Elector up close.|
|Since it's the Christmas holiday season, I give you ---- Nutrolls!|
[I just looked at the preview of this entry and I think it may be horribly botched. My apologies.]
I wish all my readers a healthy, happy and blessed Christmas. Should you celebrate another festival, may it be a good one and a peaceful one. I wish you all a better new year than we had this year. 2013 should see more entries on the Imagi-nations campaign which is coming closer. The Elector wants you to join his Marxist movement! ("What an elephant was doing in my pyjamas, I'll never know!")
