Here we are back with another selection from the club members on what they have been up to.
First we have Stephen’s impressive Hover Camper Van (above). Stephen went with a suitably retro colour scheme and has added some luggage items to the roof. Still a few stages to go – cargo and top, and weathering.
Stephen has also decided to do some extra harbour/quayside sections, he just needs to remember what colours he used on the original.
Next up John has added a few more Bolivian infantry units to his Pacific war project.
John describes these as poorly equipped ‘ragged foot’.
Next up Mark has finished his hundred years war longbows.
Some men at arms that need basing.
And a camp to rest up after a long days march.
I cannot wait to see the whole of Mark’s army on the battlefield.
And last but not least this week, I managed to paint up my long lost Viking first purchased in 1985 and then lost for 36 years!
See you next Wednesday for more miniature goodness from the club.
Welcome to another Work in Progress Wednesday, as a complete contrast I’ll start this week with what I’ve been up to. Above you can see I finished my long dead warriors scatter terrain pieces, and below I have a re-discovered a Citadel Miniatures Viking from 1985 that I’ll be adding to my Viking Saga warband.
Next up Mark has yet more 6mm units. Fist are some Roman infantry units.
Then we have some Hundred Years War Men at Arms and Longbowmen.
Finally from Mark a camp for his Greek 15mm army. This is a nice twist on the normal two tents and a wagon style camps we often see.
Next up Stephen has added to his Sci-Fi collection with a group of generic crew members.
Marcus has been improving this years club game (technically last years game!) With more snowy terrain that will hopefully be ready to play at Broadside.
And last but not least this week, Tony has continued painting his Lord of the Rings dwarf Grim Hammers.
See you next Wednesday for another catch up with the club.
Bit of a bumper crop this week. Stephen has made progress on his hover Camper Van. Stephen has added luggage to the roof and undercoated it ready for the paint scheme.
Next up Eric has painted up two fantasy miniatures. The first being a ranger miniature.
The second a warrior Eric will use for Warhammer fantasy or to add to a Dragon Rampant unit.
Mark has gone back to his Hundred Years War army with the mass ranks of archers getting the painting treatment.
John has made progress on his Japanese buildings having added the thatched roof and wooden panels.
And last but not least I’ve been looking at creating some terrain pieces to just act as battlefield dressing. Things that won’t have an effect in the game but break up the tabletop and set the scene. To start with I’m using some old Games Workshop skeletons as the fallen left behind after some ancient battle.
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.
