Well, it has again been quite a while. I have continued to acquire and microworld minis, but lately have been rounding out the forces i have by completing additional units, and working on other projects. So today’s post is a mixed bag.
First up is actually a 28mm one, but pressed into use as a spell effect (probably….). I used a full pack of Reaper Vermin:Beetle swarm minis (bones version)on a 60mm base. The whole vermin swarm line has stuff i think that can be useful for 6mm fantasy. In this case I am going to use them as the result of a ‘summon giant beetle swarm’ spell effect, as you can see the beetles are roughly person sized. The sculpts are great, and the casting is great with no lines, highly recommended.
First notice the poor quality of the photos…..these all were taken by me. I painted my second Lizardman armored brachiosaur. He is basically painted the exact invest of the other one on the skin, otherwise the same. Oddly, this wasn’t deliberate. Fantastic miniature, really the one that got me to start buying microworld games. Its a freaking dinosaur! You can also see a 1st edition Corvus Belli Vanguard Morat partially painted in the background, as well as previously painted units ranked up.
Final 6mm pics tonight are the last stands to be completed of Microworld’s Lizard Ogres (scale thanks to citadel paint pot). Again great models, these ones were painted up particularly well I thought. As you can see, a lot of the 6mm is stuff I have already painted/posted in the past (currently its the last of the lizardman warriors I have). Consequently the passion is a bit lower, and speed reduces. On the plus side I have gotten other stuff done!
These are from Spartan games, and come in several different packs, with multiple similar buildings. Spartan models are fantastic, and the buildings are no exception. The are of possible interest to naval gamers (the minis are 1/1200 scale, a common naval scale) in general, as I could see these being credible 19th/20th century wharf buildings. In this case these results are just with simple dry brushing and some paints dabs for the windows.
Nest up several pictures (and two different paints jobs!) of some Dystopian Wars Federated states of America Georgetown cruisers. These are nice models, they now come with resin guns rather than metal drop ons. These were specifically from the Operation:icestorm box set (of which I ended up with two, don’t ask why). The first two are painted with my regular FSA livery, the second painted up for my (now) wife’s forces. The colors were picked by my wife (and initial painting done by her, i finished them), and while I’m not a big fan of the gold turrets, I think I actually like the color scheme better. The main color she picked is Reaper Jade green. The color is a pain to paint with (really bad coverage over black), but I never realize how much the final color looks like the Statue of Liberty. Now obviously referencing the statue of liberty is a bit anachronistic (and the french have her as their giant robot)…but I like the look so there.
Final pic today is of some Empire of the Blazing sun Kitsune escorts. I have no idea how good these are in game (i got them super cheap), but i love the look of them, and the paint job came out great. This is my normal EoTBS paint scheme they sport. So there you go. I already have a few more models painted up for the next post. I am also currently working on the final models I have left for my lizardman army, so stay tuned, its army picture time soon!
