Starship Crew, Part 2

More starship crew members today.  Ran out of heads so the twins on the left have to stay that way.  The guy with the big gun…that started life as a GW pistol in a holster.  The guy in the trenchcoat is the only one not from the ‘Law Officers’...

Starship Crew, Part 1

The starship is a bit retro, so the crew should also be a bit retro.  Hydra Miniatures makes a great line of figures that would be perfect, if they were 15mm.  This calls for a bit of conversion. The guys publishing  Laserburn figures make some great sort-of-Judge-Dreddish-but-not-really sorts that have...

Just For Fun

I honestly can’t think of a use for these little guys (from Ground Zero Games), but had to pick them up and paint them for no other reason than they look like fun. My daughters claimed the other !Wall-e and !Artoo unit to paint for themselves.  Yes, my little...

Insert Obligatory ‘Still Here’ Joke Here

December 21, 2012.  Time to throw out your old Mayan calendar and get a new one.  Let’s skip all the obvious jokes, okay?  If you want those, just read Twitter for five minutes – you’ll get every single one of them a few dozen times. On the spaceship front...

It’s Worse Than That, It’s Gym, Captain

Here’s a nice open space for a shoot-out.  The ship’s gym comes complete with a futureball court and target, and a sparring/wrestling mat.  I’d hoped to do without the Necromunda style yellow and black striped caution marks, but darn it those patterns just plain work.  The boys at GW...

Bridge Construction

Tell me this bridge doesn’t evoke a TARDIS feeling.  That’s a basic hex base for a 28mm figure with cereal packet painted with dials, screens, and other controls.  I took the same style syringe cap used for the engines and stuffed it full of green and unpainted toothpicks.  The...

Little Touches

Every little detail added makes the rocket come alive just a little more.  This shot shows some successes in that department.  The engines are starting to look the part with bright green glowy cores surrounded by plastic casements. (Those are the tops of big syringes over a painted bamboo...

Who Is Number One?

Notre Dame, for the next month at least.  But on my table, this warboss is number one: That power sword turned out pretty good. The 28mm grenade becomes a big frackin’ bomb at this scale....

Sporc Boyz

Quick update with some painted GZG Space Mercenaries.  Brummie pointed out that they look more like the Mangalores from Fifth Element than orcs, but let’s be honest here.  Mangalores are just orcs by a different name.  Big, green, ugly warriors? You could call those ugle mugs Cutieponies and they’d...

Cheese it Boys, It’s the Copse!

This looks like your normal wargame tree stand.  Art posterboard cut into a circle, a few dollar store plastic trees, some rocks, sand, and paint, and it’s an instant forest.  In my world it becomes a low-cost oxygen generation machine.  This is designed to fit right into the heart...
