Eisenkern Stormtroopers, Robots, Tempestus Scions, Skitarri, Terrain Bits, and a Zombie

Hello Wonderful Viewer,

I have 44 things to show you today.  I hope you don't dislike sci-fi minis, because almost all the minis are sci-fi this time.  First are five Dreamforge brand Eisenkern Stormtroopers.

The skulls on their shoulders are GW decals, but of course there would be skulls on a GW decal sheet.

Here are four Anvil Industries robots.  I only finished basing two of them; want to do something different on two, but I don't know what yet.

The robots are called Unity Council C-48 'Warden' Autonomous Mechs,

Here are five GW Tempestus Scions (formerly called Kaskirin, Stormtroopers, or heavy troopers).  These ones have Skitarri heads instead of Scion ones.

Their "hellgun" cords are removed and magazines are added to rifles.  I found these in a bits bin.

Here's a comparison to a Dreamforge stormtrooper. 

Here are three Brother Vinni miniatures that bear a striking resemblance to robots in the Fallout video games.

They're resin; I wasn't careful enough and broke off the tall eyebot or drones antenna (twice).

Here are three Old Glory robots.

I'm down to 17 more robots left to paint, before I am complete with my robot army, with no rules.

Here are three Perry Prussian Landwehr cavalry.

Plastic broom whiskers are what the spears are made of.

Here are eight GW plastic Skitarri coming down a hill.

Stopped by the wall, they retreat back up the hill.

Here are two Mad Black Cat Bases brand robots, a rather large RAFM zombie, and two small Old Glory German minenwerfers.

Here are some bits of scatter terrain I made out of assorted wood bits:  pallets, picnic table, and pile of wooden beams.

Till next time, my beloved, when we shall have Dutch Red Lancers, robots, peasants, and probably more.

Germans, Prussians, Robots, Deep Ones, Space Marines, Minenwerfer, Dacians, Adeptus Mechanicus, and some Walls

Hello Dearest Viewer,

It's been six weeks since I posted anything, but at least this time I'll show you 61 things I finished..

Here are seven little robots.  The hovering things Old Glory drones, much like little flying Fallout robots.

The three bots silently running are from Black Cat Bases.  I put one on a base made out of a circuit board, but it looks stupid.

Speaking of Black Cat Bases, here are eight of their Deep Ones, from their lovely Lovecraft line.

I loved painting these guys and want to paint more.  I know they are very shiney; I gloss coated them because Lovecraft described them as slick or slimey.

The deep ones were posing in front of some walls I made for the soon to be released Fallout Wasteland Warfare.

In case a wall gets destroyed, I built a damaged one too.

It's simple cardboard, so I soaked it in glue to make the torn "metal" not move.

 Oh dear, someone got caught in the minenwerfer explosion!

Here are some Prussians running around.  (Warlord)

Here they are running back for a thing they forgot.

Some Old Glory small WWI Minenwerfer crews.

Here they are wondering where the Prussians went.

Here's some large Old Glory Minenwerfer's.  I posted the crews in an earlier post.  I love both saying and writing Minenwerfer.                                                Minenwerfer

Three more space marines in my quest to paint one of each legion.

Black Templar, Adulator, Dark Angel.

Two Old Glory robots, I love robots. 

The blue one is named My Little Minenwerfer.

A Warlord mounted Prussian Landwehr officer and 3 Old Glory Rus swordsmen.

I secretly positioned the Rus at different angles; so you can't tell they're all the same model pose.

Here's a GW Adeptus Mechanicus boss of robots model; next to him is an old Mageknight model with a couple GW parts added.

I spared every cost on the robot, his base is even an old broken one, held together with puppy love.

Four random models.  I have no clue who made the dwarf with a catapult on his back.  The barbarian is an old Citadel model. 

I don't know who made the large medic, but he's been conscripted into my IG army.  The little IG guy is one of the worst IG sculpts from the Rogue Trader days.

Here's some random crap I glued to bases.  The brown stone is fossilized dinosaur bone; there must be a dinosaur graveyard buried in my yard.  They're chunks sliced off of larger pieces.

The green rock is a piece of Sonoran sunrise turquoise given to me by  Huitzilopochtli.  (Tournament Gamer secret:  smash several painted models before every battle, as a sacrifice to Huitzilopochtli and you always win; but never invite him to be a house guest (he leaves his socks under the couch and puts cheese in his coffee)).

Almost everyone was posing on this 6' x 4' flexible game mat I made.  It's amazingly flexible and soft.

To make a flexible mat: 1. get a big piece of canvas, 2. mix sand, brown paint and acrylic caulk (min 1 tube per 4 square feet, 3.  put goo on canvas, 4. let dry, 5. dry brush, 6. add flock if you want

Well till next time my beloved Minenwerfers, when I'll have Polish Lancers, Prussians, robots, spacemen and only Huitzilopochtli knows what else.

WWII Americans, Dwarf Rangers, Complete Randos, and some Water


I've managed to finish some models.  I've actually painted far more, but I almost loath basing, so there might be a larger post in near future.

Here are some defunct Wargames Factory WW2 Americans.  I'm quite positive I painted them all wrong.

I accidently gave them one too many special weapons. 

Here are twelve plastic GW LotR Dwarf rangers, without the round plastic bases.  Rangers are nice for Dragon Rampant, at least against me.

I didn't paint these guys I got off of TMP's Xenophon, but I did rebase them.

Here is an unknown Wargames Foundry soldier and a Rogue Trader era Robot.

I wish I knew what the Foundry model was; I've painted three of them.  The robot looks like a bug.

Here's a Mageknight model I rebased.  I only repainted the teeth, claws, and talon-things.  The sweat shop paint job was nice enough.

Please identify these models for me.  They were a gift from the wargames writer Ken Sidenblad.

Here's a water hole I made for a friend.

I could win a messy table contest.

Till next time when I should have Prussians, Germans, Russ, and some 40K stuff.

Much Love and Many Kisses,
