Hobbits

 Hi Folks! Finally, I've got some time and energy to pick up the paintbrush again. Inspired by the trailers for the upcoming Hobbit movie(s), I fished out some old Games Workshop Hobbits from my lead mountain and painted them up. There is a lot of character in such small minis. They really capture their celluloid counterparts. So here are Frodo, Sam, Pippin and Merry

Townsfolk - Geeks

More Reaper townsfolk. Fun miniatures. Nothing fancy but a nice change from painting all that drab military minis.

American Special Forces

 In the early years of the war in Afghanistan, some of the most fascinating images that emerged were the pictures the battle hardened, bearded American special forces. This Empress minis capture that Hobo look perfectly. My only beef with them is that Empress only released four of them. I want more!

Okko - Master Kanatta

I painted another Okko swordsman. Great looking mini. The only thing that bothered me was the strange shape of his head. But I simply painted it as hair.

British Special Forces

 More Empress Brits. This is the Special Forces Command. Afghan interpreter and satellite communication device included.

American Special Forces

 I finally finished the American Special Forces. I'm not quite satisfied with the multicam uniforms. They turned out a bit to dark. I really like the SCAR carbines. Sweet looking weapon.

British Special Forces

Today's post is a venture into a new epoch. Modern warfare. This minis are from Empress Miniatures' Modern Combat range. The sculpting and especially the casting is some of the best work I have ever seen. Painting them was great fun. The few pictures of British SF in the current Afghanistan conflict show a wild mix of uniforms and civilian clothing. This gives you countless possibilities to paint them up. Besides SF, they could be used as mercenaries, contractors or even zombie survivors.

Empress makes also British regulars, American infantry and special forces, Taliban and more. If you are interested in modern stuff then check them out! http://www.empressminiatures.com/




More to come soon.

Okko - Oni Bushi

 This mini is a fantastic looking japanese demon made by Hazgaard Editions for the Okko board game. Okko is a french comic book that takes place in Pajan , a fantasy version of medieval Japan. The game is played with cardboard cutouts but at some point an additional range of metal miniatures was released. Sadly the range is very small and I'm not sure if they are even still in production. I bought some minis last year and started painting them recently. The minis are sculpted and cast very well. Most of them are multi-part miniatures and need to be build together, which can be quite fiddly because of the very fragile nature of them.




Here is a comparison between the Okko mini and a Reaper samurai

Three Doctors

 Hallo! Today I'm dumping here some Doctor Who miniatures. They are made by Heresy Miniatures. This are lovely sculpts and capture the characters very well. My favorite minis are the eleventh Doctor and his companion Amy Pond. The painting turned out a bit sloppy and for some reason very glossy. I even considered to strip and repaint them. But I'll leave them as they are (for now).


 

 Have a nice Weekend!

Confederate Infantry Brigade

Although I haven't updated on my American Civil War project in months, I did manage to make some progress.

I finished 4 battalions of infantry! Enough to call it a Brigade. And believe me this is a lot for my lazy arse.
Three "generic" infantry battalions and one batallion of Coppens' Zouaves (First Louisiana Zouaves)

The greys are a mix of Perry plastic and metal miniatiures. The zouaves are straight from the box Perry plastics.

The Flags are from Perry and GMB Design






Cragback and Lug

 These two Minions are the first Privateer Press Miniatures I have painted. I love Lug the armored bear.
He is cast in white metal and very heavy. It's not surprising that they were quite expensive.
Cragback is some kind of dwarf and wears the cubs of his best friend as clothing....

James Bowie, William Travis and Davy Crockett

Hello! The sun came out for a few minutes and I used the opportunity to make some photos. Mostly some old 1/72 stuff that I'm going to sell on Evilbay. I posted WIP pics of my Texians some time ago but the quality was horrible, so I also made a pic of them finished. At least of the 3 Heroes of Alamo. The sun was gone very fast.

The minis are made by Atrizan Designs

Ii Clan Samurai

Here are some Perry Samurai that I painted least year. The red armor of the Li Clan Ii Clan is something that must have looked very striking on the battlefield. It sure does on miniatures. I wish I had the time or patience to paint a whole army of them.
