twisted moon's 2019

i mentioned at the end of last year that i was having trouble painting some shields (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=14082&start=30). the acquisition of some 2mm diameter tamiya masking tape has allowed me to surmount this, so here are the completed figures.

these are from offensive miniatures and form the human component of the spanglish town constabulary. here's one of them leading a patrol of automated constables (not painted recently) in a routine sweep.

although there are always more non-combatants who could be added, i'm calling that project done now. i was asked to show the whole force, so i'll try and get them photographed and posted to the showroom in the relatively near future.
no plans for a major project this year; i think i'll keep it eclectic and paint what i fancy to maintain enthusiasm.

You know what's funny, real security robots look a bit like that. (Albeit without the plungers.) Ominous stuff when you think about it. Good use of some classic miniatures.

Re: twisted moon's 2019

i'm back on the ratmen for a while; on the left we have a couple of multi-part resin figures from mierce miniatures: blunt-claw and quick-blade. i got these as presents for christmas 2017 as, although they're nice sculpts, they're too expensive for me. the others are citadel: a poisoned wind globadier and the second iteration of the jezzail team.

these are from clan renj; a client of clan skryre. as a consequence they get lots of experimental new weapons to test under battlefield conditions with the benefit of getting to keep whatever doesn't blow up and kill the operators.
here's another view of the globadier and jezzail.

Re: twisted moon's 2019

some more ratmen; this time the third iteration of the jezzail, which i'll be using as a sharp-shooter team and four warplock muskets.

these are shattered isles miniatures sculpted by mark sims. i got them from black hat miniatures, but the range has subsequently been sold on and I cannot currently remember to whom.
here's another shot of the sharpshooter team:

i'd like to add a front rank with rests but no pavises to the four warplock muskets if i can find suitable figures, but until then this is a complete unit for clan renj,

Re: twisted moon's 2019

something a bit different today. i got rangers of shadow deep for christmas, and decided to form a ranger band from my wood elf / sidhe miniatures, some of which i was painting up last november (or, as i prefer, the el(e)venth month): viewtopic.php?f=20&t=14082&start=20.
in developing the band i wanted to explore some of the options that are different to frostgrave, and a raptor was one of these. i didn't have any bird of prey miniatures amognst the lead pile, a search of ebay didn't inspire and nor did a peruse of traders at vapnartak. then i remembered i had some rammage from my order of warmonger elven nymph archers, voila! a very suitable proxy, i think.

so i made these using warhammer regiment's bodies i got fairly cheaply from ebay a while ago, spare heads from an aos clan pestilens starter set, garden wire, weapons from my original warhammer regiments box in three cases, a metal spare from a previous conversion and a sliver of milk bottle plastic in the others, milliput, and pva soaked tissue.
