Painting Table Saturday 15/02/14


Been a busy few weeks with birthdays and free time spent playing games rather than painting. This weeks there's been some progress and stuff has moved from the paint table to finished! YaY Hopefully If his dam weather give me a break and the sun come out i'll take some pics of what I've finished off.

Some will wait for a bit longer as I've entered them into a competition over at Dropship Horizon the Titanium Dropship 2014 



Miniatures currently awaiting paint this week are 6 Copplestone Future Wars Bio Chem troopers now these where done a few ears back but I never got round to doing the bases. So a few months back I did the putty work and now they are just awaiting to be painted to fit in with my other figs. Should be quick job and varnish and done.

Being in the Post Apocalyptic mood lately and not wanting to spend money on new lead just yet I have dug out some figs to paint as I'm in the mood. Hasslefree Jess has been started (again after being stripped due to the varnish incident last year) just undercoated white and basecoat of flesh. Finally new to the table is Katana Kate from EM4 miniatures sent to me kindly by Lord Siwoc many moons ago she's finally receiving paint though i'll need to putty her base.

The shuttle needs more work building it up I've undercoated it black to see if it helps with making my mind up what to do with the back end of it.........though it hasn't helped lol

  2. Sometime you have to choose between playing and painting. But a healthy balance is always good. Nice to see some progress as well.

  6. Ah, and I hoped those green guys are the 15mm marines! :P

    Great work nonetheless and as for the shuttle - I am sure it could use some engines in the back...or stabilisers perhaps?

    1. Sorry they are 28mm mate I think these were painted over 2 years ago lol. My 15mm ones are already done. The shuttle needs a stabilizer fin just not sure how I want it to look.

    1. They're a nice bunch you get 3 Assault Rifles, a Shotgun and and Flamethrower in the pack. (I have an extra Assault rifle from an ebay win) They are finished really its just the bases that need finishing off. Its one of those sets I did waaaaaay back when I re-started and I wasn't sure what I was going to do about basing.

  14. Is there a better reason for not painting than playing lots of games? I look forward to seeing your latest batch of figures finished.
