Here we are with another selection of pictures from the club showing what we’ve up to. With the return of club meetings, projects are turning to the various games we have managed to start playing again.
First up Tony has been painting up some 15mm Brigadier characters, strangely enough from Brigade Models. He has also managed to complete another dwarf for his LOTR’s collection.
Next up I’ve been painting up some crates from the Mantic Dreadball range for use in various sci-fi games.
John has been painting up some 10mm Chilean and Peruvian Cavalry.
Lastly for this week Stephen has used up some old EM4 Colonial Marines miniatures and a bit of kit bashing to create some additional crew/gang members for use in games like Stargrave.
A tad late today, apologies all. This week the vast majority of work was done by Eric, with one small addition from Tony. Where’s everyone else gone?
Eric says his painting mojo has really sunk it’s teeth into him at the moment, and he’s been prolific in his output. First up is Inquisitor Greyfax from Warhammer 40k, Eric says she’s a work in progress, and will make a great “psyker” captain for Stargrave in addition to appearing in his 40K army.
Next, an old piece of scenery he finally got round to paying attention to.
Some random robot that was found in the desert just before the locals decided to handball him on to their transport. Will likely serve as a data loot cache marker for Stargrave.
And for a complete change of direction, some Roman Legionaries.
Back to the Sci Fi theme, a small Adeptus Astartes Reiver squad for either 40k or Kill Team (maybe Stargrave, who knows?)
And 3 x runners/recruits for Stargrave and a robot. The runners were kitbashed from 40k spares, the robot is based on Claptrap from Borderlands. Model by Crooked Dice Games.
And, finally from Eric, some Stargrave Loot markers.
It’s not quite an Eric monopoly this week, Tony has finished a few figures. He’s decided to start on Thorin’s Company, so here are Thorin, James Nesbitt Bofur and Gandalf.
That’s it for this week, hopefully we’ll be back on schedule next Wednesday.
While Jeremey is away he handed the reins over to Andy for this week’s post.
Only four items to show this week, not sure if that is the effect of the weather, or that we have now resumed meetings.
First up, Tony continues his 15mm Sci Fi Des Res, made from an electrical pattress box, accessories from the Brigade range, and spares from the bits box. He has added a few more greeblies including a radar dish, then started painting – undercoat, dark wash then some drybrushing. Front view above, rear aspect below.
John has added a fourth base to his Chilean battalions for the War of the Pacific.
Meanwhile Mark has done some more work on his Judge Dread figures and his 6mm Pontic army.
And his son, Felix, has been trying out GW Contrast Paints on his Mega City Block Gang.
(Ed: In an earlier edition of this post I credited the Judge Dredd and Pontic work to Eric and his son in error. It should have been credited to Mark and his son. Apologies to all concerned.)
Finally, not so much WIP as just finished. The last of my Dark Ages foot, ready for a game last night at Milton Hundred.
Well, that’s it for this week. Back into Jeremey’s safe hands next week.
It’s Wednesday again and we have another selection from the club members.
This week we will start with Tony since he has been very productive, above we have Tom Bombadil to go with last weeks painting of Goldberry and below Tony has some more Rohirrim with some Helmingas.
For the last contribution from Tony I’ll let his own words speak; “a small utility building made from an electrical pattress (the sort that fit into hollow partition walls – £1 from Wilko) dressed up with resin doors/windows/vents and other bits.”
Next up Mark has on his work table the last of his Pontic army, the fleshy bits done just the rest to go. Also recently purchased Judge Dredd miniatures have been started.
Any Finally this week John has made a start on Allies for Pacific war with some 10mm Peruvians from Pendraken figures.
See you next week when Andy will be sitting in for me.
We start this week with Tony having made painting progress on Mos Arun in 6mm. Looking forward to having this in a game.
Next up Marcus has been working on a 15mm GZG Moongrunt unit and Ral Parthia Battletech Rommel tanks. Marcus said “Nominally around 10mm I think, but perfect as heavy AFV’s in 6mm”.
Eric is up next with some conversion work he is doing on a potential Stargrave crew.
Eric explains the work being done “Old 40k Space Marine scouts with some head swaps. The guy with the yellow armour also has a right and left arm from a Mantic Forefather mini and his head is an old 40k daemon head with some reshaping”.
Stephen has created another unit for his Moslem army. This time some Hashishin.
And last for this week Andy continues work for the forestry commission with some rebasing.
A steady stream of activity from club members at the moment. I did wonder if it would slow down as people run out of projects, but no sign of that for now.
Above we have Stephen’s superb addition to a new Saga force in the shape of some Saracen cavalry.
Next up Tony has made progress on Mos Arun as it is now known.
Andy continues with his Medieval soldiers with the start of some mounted sergeants.
Andy has also decided to rebase some trees onto bigger bases.
Not last this time I’ve been putting hair nets on balls to make some progress on my Napoleonic Balloon Project.
And last but not least for this week, Marcus has asked if his discovery of some old Ground Zero Games 6mm tanks is worthy of a mention. it is but mainly because these are likely to end up adding to Marcus’ sci-fi version of What a Tanker!
