Otherworld Dwarf Fighter

Another Dwarf Fighter finished off the paint pile. He has sat half done for ages. I painted this guy a good few years back but after a few months noticed the varnish clouding a lot of the paint job on him and the fully armoured dwarf fighter below. Its really hard to paint the same figure twice. Its very similar in scheme again.


All of my Dwarf ,Gnome and Halfling adventurers. 

All my Otherworld Dwarves the fighter on the left also ended up with issues from the varnish

Crooked Dice Goblin Missile Troops

Happy weekend folks. Got the last of my goblins I own finished this week. The Misslie armed goblins come equipped with bows and slings. I just have two packs to pick up from Crooked Dice and this will complete my colletion of all the infantry. I do need to get some Wolfriders as well at some point.

It seems Otherworld replaced these with new sculpts they are kind of cool but also kind of expensive. I may get some in the future but there is a lot from CD I want. Ogre's and Orcs being high up on that list.

The playtesting of 7TV Fantasy is really cool and I am really enjoying it. Looking forward to its release next year very much so.

All my Goblins so far. With a King and Shaman

Exciting times ahead there is tons and tons of cool profiles and I am liking the magic rules that have been added to the system. Anyway wanting to try out more profiles has got me digging stuff out and getting it painted so I can use them and is first of the production line is my to be named Dwarven Lord (Kain on the website) by Hasslefree miniatures. Lots of details on this one he has sat half done on the workbench for a long time so just got him finished off quite quickly.

Crooked Dice Goblin King and Wizard

 To tell the honest truth I have had these half painted for ages and recently I have been involved with play testing the 7TV Fantasy rules. so suitably inspired and digging around for models I found these and got them finished off so I can play with nice painted toys. Originally they were all from Otherworld but they have been sold on to Crooked Dice and have just been rereleased via kickstarter. 

These others I finished a good while ago and its nice that they all still match. Next up is some missile armed goblins.

Action Force Quarrel (Alpha Squad)

 Hi everyone. Not been hobbying much of late just not had to much inclination. I have found not being able to play games or goto events a bit of a drag. I have done some a bit here and there and a while back I finished this lovely lady for my Gi Joe/Action Force Project.

Quarrel is the sort of Action Force equivalent of the Joe's Scarlett character. In fact its pretty much the same toy just in different colourings. I didn't want to get another copy of the figure I used for Scarlett so had a look through the bits box and found some appropriate pieces. The weaponry is different but to mit doesn't matter to much as Quarrel is better known for riding the rapid fire motorcycle than anything else.

The figure body itself is a Hasslefree miniatures whose head I had removed to use for my New Avengers Purdey conversion. Not wanting to waste it I added a spare head from Statuesque miniatures and painted it an appropriate scheme. I have some other infantry which I have started putting the basecoat colours on.

Alpha Squad Torpedo

Was hoping to if been posting up some new miniatures that arrived from Kitbash Games kickstarter but unfortunately my Army Painter Spray primer left them all with a terrible texture to the surface so having to strip the whole batch.

Instead od doing nothing I  have grabbed a few figures that were primed using my humbrol primer lingering in the paint pile. I've been playing Fortnite lately on the PS4 and got inspired to painted a diver as its very water orientated this season. So selected one of my Joes who I planned to use as Torpedo. I kind of of kept the original colours but paid homage to one of my fave skins the Tactical Jonesy by adding in some light blue camo to the scheme.

Torpedo with Recondo, Shipwreck and Tunnel Rat.

Crooked Dice Female Agent

Painted this one up as a break in between doing all the green etc on the ghouls. This figure is from Crooked Dice it came as part of the Science Cast set in Apocalypse but now comes as a pair in the set. They are based on the two main characters in the Omega Man but I plan to use her as a secret agent character for spy fi.

Originally I went for a light brown afro but it clashed with the purple clothing so I repainted it black.

The first version.

7TV Day Crooked Dice Black Goat/Wendigo

This is my Black Goat model from Crooked Dice its made of resin and comes in four pieces comprising of the body/legs, left and right arms then the skull/horns. Its intended use is in the Children of  the fields Winterley Cast as an adversary to Lady Winterley and the Strawman. But its physical characteristics also fit into the profile both size wise and physical description of the supernatural creature known as a Wendingo from the Pulp expansion Menagarie of Terror. (It has a goat skull rather than stag but happy to overlook that).

I went for fleshy tones on with grey fur and I am quite pleased with it. 

I need to varnish it still once I have it reapplied and then I can add some tufts etc to match my Children of the Fields models.

Pulp Figures Companion

 Another figure i've always admired is one of the stalwart companions from Pulp Figures. There are a couple I have always liked  just never got around to grabbing the full sets. I spotted a few on ebay selling singles so grabbed this Scottish and the Tibetan guide looking ones.

This was my first attempt at doing the tartan following a method I found online for doing the Burrows Highlanders. I know where I went wrong though. So repainted it  the base colours but left it at the third stage where I was most happy with it.

This was the first go which just got messy quickly. I guess from a distance it probably would look ok.
Went back over and just stopped at this stage and much happier with it..

Burrows and Badgers Hedgehog Huntress

Another Burrows mini finished from the recent kickstarter. This time the Hedgehog Huntress. Lovely characterful little mini. I struggled with defining the spines from the fur getting their in the end but it took to many steps to get to where I wanted her to be.
