Obelisk Gangstars

Finally got these guys finished (well more or less I just reallised as i type this they need a coat of matt varnish). But thats not gonna change the appearance that much I don't think.

These guys are quite characterful my favorite of the three is the one with the baseball bat. He's reaching into his back pocket to pull out a pistol.

They are all pretty good sculpts some have little weird bits the hand holding the baseball bat seems huge.

Some of the detail was a pain to paint the left hand on the knife guy and the chains round the necks on the knife and bat guy. Overall I'm really please the way they turned out i'm definatly going to pick up some more from Blackcat bases.

Quiet Week on the Hobby Front

Not had much time this week on the hobby front. Been to knackered when I eventually come home from work to pick up a paint brush.

There has been a little progress on the 3 Obelisk Gangstars and they are almost finished.

Watched 'Paul' other night and I found absolutely Hilarious. The bundling agents made me laugh so much.

Anyway it got me thinking about Government Agents etc.

So much so I ended up buying some Copplestone Castings Men in Black and a set of Corporate Babes 2.
At the moment they're undercoated and I've done the bases. Isn't it amazing how much a film can influence you I'm not even sure what I'm going to use them for yet either LOL

I imagine some sort of Corporate Enforcers or double as Mafia types.

Zombie Hunter Finished

Finally got my next Zombie Hunter finished Hasslefree Baker is now going to be added to my crossbow armed Zombie Hunter. Not sure who is else is going to be on the team yet.

Mixed feelings about the camera on this first two I took them indoors with the flash enabled. They seem ok but the seem to have washed out the highlights on the jacket.

Theses two are both taken outside with and without the flash

Pics of Chicks

Ha Ha got your attention. Finally based and varnished some of my miniatures.  All Hasslefree the Lady Soldiers set by Mantic I have repainted the body armour and added some extra highlights I think they are much nicer.

The Bases are milliput smoothed out then textured with a hard nylon paint brush you would get out of a kids paint set.

Now Hasslefree Dione I wasn't happy with the hair or the body suit so its been repainted and I think she looks alot smoother than from when I previous posted.

Comparison Pictures for those who asked about the Dixon miniatures line. From Left to Right
Copplestone, Dixon, Hasslefree, Dixon and Wargames Foundry.

I stuck to  putting in average sized people and tried to pick those with a similar pose. They are all based the same apart from the Hasslefree Lady Soldier who is on a standard slotta base and is about 1mm taller.

Zombie Hunter and Yakuza Finished

Finished my Zombie Hunter and Dixon Yakuza. Spent more time than I would of liked redoing Eyes and the tattoos but never mind enjoy.

Zombie Hunter is armed with a Crossbow and Large Caliber pistol.
Made from Foundry B team Murdock, Trimmed the Magazine off his rifle and trimmed the Barrel into an arrowhead. I then added the quiver and bow from a Games workshop Moria goblin. Finally added a space marine bolt pistol in holster to his left leg as I thought he need a back up weapon. The holster was trimmed to size as it was huge.

These Yakuza are from Dixon Miniatures and I think they are quite characterful my favorite by far is the bald one armed with a shotgun as he has a scar running across the top off his head.
I added a marine bolt pistol and combat knife to the Tattooed guy as he was unarmed again trimmed down as they where huge.

What do you think?

Any more tips would be greatly appreciated

Two extra photos added

Not had much time this weekend as went on a day trip to Weston Super Mare with the other half and kiddie winks. Had a great time but it was very tiring.

Anyway I've had a bit of an experimental week. Had a go at painting eyes and had a go at painting some tattoos. I've still got plenty to do neaten and finish up.

Please any comments or tips would be great
