Khurasan Exterminators Part 1

Title says it all really with the cooler weather this weekend my enthusiasm increased to get these guys finished. Superb little figures by Khurasan Miniatures. Full of lovely little details they really do surprise me that they are 15s. Thanks for the painting tips on the previous posts i've tried to take notice and hope these look slightly better.  They still need basing howeverI really can't make up my mind with what colours? Any Suggestions?

The next ten have been started as well as two sentry guns and will be well on there way to being finished by the weekend fingers crossed.

Being as the weather is so nice again today I took some pics out in the garden for a change. On another note i'm really chuffed with how these guys look as I have had these a while and was bit apprehensive about paint 15mms figures. The bug has bitten and there will be more.






Thought I'd drop a before pic in.

  1. You're really getting into these 15mm's Nice job!

    I don't know about basing these, but Fran has done loads of them. He's pics of them on his blog and you might want to take a look at them for ideas.

    1. Its more the colour of the bases at the minute.

      Most likely I ordered small quantities to avoid customs duties as the limit is £15.00 So just picked up a pack of each of the regular exterminators though and the sentry guns.

      I will probably get at least two packs to use as some sort of elites. I want a couple more the regular marines as well as the extra packs have a fair few special weapons in them.

    2. I'd go dark grey then and a little drybrush.

  4. Bases I would do to suit whatever terrain boards you have for them.

    Nice work mate keep it up.

    1. Cheers Clint, its colour choice more than anything as I don't have a board as such yet though I may make one for these as I probably won't need a big area for it.

  5. Looks great Simon!

    I make my bases with woodfiller and sand. Let it dry and paint it.

  8. I like the highlighting and the natural light on them. Look like they will kick someone's arse if found in a sci fi dark alley.
