Hasslefree Katie

Another Juvenile from the fantastic Hasslefree range. Again this comes from the joint Mantic/Hasslefree set. Katie is again going to be part of the Diorama which the new deadline is the end of January.




Armed with a baseball bat and a metal bin lid for protection those kneecaps better watch out. Lots of fun to paint seems ages since I've had the chance and I felt a bit rusty painting her up making daft mistakes I wouldn't normally lol.Lots of nice details to pick out the only awkward bit I found is painting the back of the head between the bin lid and the hair but as a single piece casting its more my ham fistedness than anything.


Other projects wise I've picked up some more bits for 7TV and plan on doing a mini campaign of 3-4 scenarios not quite made my mind up yet they are still in the planning stages. making notes and drawing maps etc.

Placed my second Khurasan order so I now have some adversary's on there way. The 15mm SciFi has stalled a little bit only because I'm not happy with the uniform colours I've done for the Exterminators. I've done a few test figs which the colours didn't quite go or I wasn't happy with them. I think I've found a choice I like so more work but I'm unsure what colour to do the webbing/pouches etc.

Blog wise I've tweaked the background I think it was making the text to hard to read and I couldn't find a text colour that suited it so have changed it again.

  1. Looks great - very interested in seeing the diorama, but the figure would make a great survivor for a scenario too

    1. Thanks Shelldrake, IT is partly why I've kept them all as seperate pieces so I can use it all as well for different things.

  4. She looks great, the detail on the bin lid is fantastic, do people still use this bin type in the UK or USA? in Eire we use the plastic wheeled bins that trucks can lift. im looking forward to your mini campaign

    1. Thanks buddy. We have the same plastic wheeled bins we have around four different coloured ones for recycling etc. My Dad still has a metal one that he keeps sand/concrete in at the top of the Garden its probably older than me in all fairness.

  6. One of my favourite figures from Hasslefree, at least in part because I painted my copy up like my own daughter. Your version looks as if she's pausing for reflection, I think?

  13. Fantastic work on this adorable figure! Love the "shield" and her chosen weapon. She could easily take on Alex and his Droogs if needed too I bet. Best, Dean

  20. Really love what you've done with her Brummie. I really like the Hasslefree survivor kids mini's. My favorite has to be the kid with the cold weather gear and chainsaw.
