twisted moon's 2020

the first painting of this year has been of overspill from deadcember.

if i can find the third head variant (with the same rider as these two), for a reasonable price, i'd like to add it.

three ice toads for frostgrave:

which way do you think?

i now see i need to clean the bases up a little.
these are actually demonic imp familiars from heresy miniatures. i thought about going with frog familiars from rapier miniatures since they were cheaper, but i wanted to put in an order with heresy for some other things anyway.
having said that, i'm still waiting for a missing figure from that order to arrive.

Re: twisted moon's 2020

something for my sci-fi collection this time.

Orca Battlesuit1a.JPG
safety first, always.
Orca Battlesuit1a.JPG (22.27 KiB) Viewed 1297 times


this is a capitol orca battlesuit for target games' warzone. prince august has quite a lot of (remainder?) stock for warzone, but i couldn't see any of these on their website. i was fortunate enough to pick up a box of three from the bring and buy at battleground for £5.00, which is a bargain by any measure.

Orca Battlesuit1b.JPG
the other side.

it's a hefty miniature being almost solid metal in five parts plus the gunner in two. i assume there is supposed to be a driver in behind the canopy, especially as there appear to be double doors in front of the gunner.

Orca Battlesuit1c.JPG
can you see the doors?
Orca Battlesuit1c.JPG (19.73 KiB) Viewed 1296 times


there should be another weapon on the right flank, but the kit was missing one of these (the recoilless cannon). i thought of bodging something up using a spare ion age weapon but decided against it and painted this one to add to my disorganised criminal gangs (from foundry's street violence range), using the least military looking gunner (both others have closed helmets), as something they've acquired as military surplus. twin heavy stubbers is still pretty serious firepower.
i'm not sure how i'll integrate the others (with missile launcher and flamethrower); either as part of the planetary defence force or constabulary are the most obvious choices, but i'm pretty content with them as they are.
the final figure from heresy also turned up.

The orca battlesuit is lovely and very oldhammery and I especially like the ice toads. :)

Re: twisted moon's 2020

here's a terrain tile of a seemingly bottomless pit i have just completed.

who put these statues here?

what strange implements do they wield?

the main structure is a bit of polystyrene packaging with steps added with foamcore.
the statues are soft plastic toy soldiers.

Re: twisted moon's 2020

here's another ruined terrain tile i have just finished:

Osgiliath ruins 1.JPG
yeah, it definitely needs renovation.

it comprises a full set of gw osgiliath ruins, minus the statues, and northumbria painting services craters.

but there's lots of scope for personalisation.

a not quite complete version made an appearance in the renegade scout battle report i published yesterday (https://bit.ly/2v6d1lb).

^Minus the statues those look pretty good. Very versatile. All that is old does not glitter and not all who Newhammer are lost. ;-)

Nicely done!

not keen on the statues?

i have just finished a bijou force of diehard miniatures eru-kin.
here's the command squad:

before i made the order i asked if it would be possible to swap xipil - sci-fi command group tech mage for meztli - tech mage in the sci-fi command group pack, and tim prow got back to me quickly to kindly agree.
in making my squad i separated out yolotli - sci-fi command group leader to add to my tactical / devastator squad and added the eru-kin elite guard to provide some muscle.
here's a better view of the front and back of their flag:

the force has erroneously become known as the cosmic coatls due to their opponents' misinterpretation of this side of the flag.

as can be seen here, their correct designation is sicohyaxis' 3rd spawning.

Re: twisted moon's 2020

here's the rifle squad, comprising the eru-kin mag gun unit with the addition of yolotli - sci-fi command group leader.

both yolotli and the trooper on the left end have heavier versions of the standard mag gun, so i'll upgrade those to special weapons in game terms.

finally, here's the assault squad, formed of the bog-blood handgun unit.

these are lovely figures, although a bit bigger than i was expecting. quite a few of them are multi-part, which i also wasn't expecting, but they went to together very easily. if i had known i might have configured my order slightly differently.
my only criticism is i would have preferred if the bog-blood's had all come with pistols. if i hadn't been so eager to get these painted i might have press molded pistol hands for them, but too late for that now. again, if i'd known the hands were seperate, i might have asked if it was possible to get all pistols.

Re: twisted moon's 2020

I have a fair few of those sitting in a box. They really are lovely little models, but like you, I wish I had more pistols. (Since I want to sci-fi with them.)

Anyway . . . lovely work so far. :)
