Grenadier Barbarian Zombie Finished



Finished off the Grenadier Barbarian Zombie, haven’t done much with the base though,
as he will probably end up as part of my Saga Revenants Warband & I’ve not even thought of a basing scheme for them yet.

Grenadier Miniature Barbarian Zombie WIP

Well I’ve got sidetracked again & started painting an old Grenadier Miniatures Barbarian Zombie
 that I've had kicking about for years, so I thought I would share a WIP. 

I panted the flesh starting with Vallejo Luftwaffe Uniform k& adding flesh, pale blue & finally pale grey. 
For the bone I started with an Iron grey/leather brown mix & added more leather brown, followed by pale sand & finally pale grey. 
The fur is painted with black brown & highlighted with various browns & pale grey.

MOONOTAUR FINISHED

Got time to base the Highland Cow Minotaur up & take some half decent pictures while the su shone this morning. 
I loved painting this & can’t wait till Bears Head Miniatures release some more, 
they’ve already previewed one wielding a big hammer

I’ve started painting the Highland cow minotaur from Bears Head Miniatures

I’ve only got the fur & flesh done for now.
The fur is painted with the Vallejo Panzer Aces rust colours, 
washed with a mixture of old Citadel Red & Yellow ink with some Army Painter soft tone added. 
The horns & nails are various browns pale grey & finished with pale sand. 
The flesh is painted with 4 of the Foundry expert flesh paints washed with soft tone.

Hornet Finished

I’ve added the smoke dischargers now, so I’m calling this done. 
I think if i don’t watch it I will just keep adding stuff to it. 

 


If you’re lucky I might have it painted by this time next year 😁

Smoke Dischargers

I’ve decided to make some smoke dischargers for the Hornet & for a Bren carrier. 


I used some plastic tubing, plastic angle & some Warlord Games British Plastic Enfield Rifles


I’m not quite sure where exactly I will put the ones on the hornet yet though
 & I don’t have it with me to try it either.

Hornet Base

Heres the base for the Hornet


Ive kept it fairly simple with just loose rubble & of course a bit of wrinkley tin.

K47 Hornet Medium Walker Part 3

 
I've done a bit more to the Hornet.
Added some grab rails & a Tarpaulin.
I also added the bent pipe to the right fist.

 
 Next I will start work on the base.

Clyde Barrow Partizan Freebie




I found a miniature in the Lead Mountain over the weekend. 
Its one of the Partzan Show Freebies of Clyde Barrow, of the infamous ganster couple Bonnie & Clyde. 
I”d completley forgotten about this miniatue & how fantastic it is, so i thought i would paint it up on Sunday night  

 I can’t remember where the base is from or even when or where I got them from as I have a few of them. 
I cut up a pop can into small rectangles to represent some loose cash that has fallen out of the bag 
as there is loose cash sculpted on the figure falling out of the bag. 


The money was painted off white & washed with green & the edges re-highlighted with the basecoat 
to give the impression of the 1930”s doller bills.

K47 Hornet Medium Walker Part 2

              A bit more work on the Hornet, rivets & some bolts have been added to the armour skirts.  
The bolt heads are a bit on the big size, 
but this was the only hex rod that I could get from the local model shop. 

   
I've also added plates to the Pauldrons & put some roughed up Greenstuff on the edge to (hopefully) simulate welds.

K47 Hornet Medium Walker



I’ve started building a Hornet for my Konflikt 47 Brits.
But I’m not keen on how the armoured plate is configured at the rear (as can be seen on the pictures above from the Warlord Games site), so I have altered it and added more of them from a square flat plastic base, I still have a few rivet/bolt heads to add.




 
 I will also add some front & rear plates to the shoulder Pauldrons,
This will make it look like there is more protection to the joints.

Vikings with Dane axe


Here's a couple of Dane Axe armed figures that i did a while ago & forgot to post.
They are both from Wargames Foundry & have had weapon swaps.


Sorry for the mis-post, I seem  to be having trouble with the Blog Pad Pro App deleting everything rather than posting it.

Sherman Troop

Ive finally finished my Troop of shermans for WW2 gaming, Bolt Action, Konflikt 47 & hopefully What a Tanker. 
They are all plastic kits from Warlord games, a Sherman M4, a Sheman V & a Sherman V “Firefly”. 
There are a few descrepancies between the older M4 kit and the newer V kits, 
but not too noticable (unless you look really hard) & adding the Commander from the V kits helps. 

Ive cocked up the  Squadron markings though 🙄
As they are supposed to be Guards Armoured & 
they put them on the hull rather than the turret ☹️
But im not changing them now 😁
Well this is my third attempt to post this, so fingers crossed it will post. 
Hope whoever is still reading my blog likes these

Cheers

New Fatigue Marker for Saga

I recently finished a new fatigue marker for Saga using the Time for beer miniature from the Freya’s Wrath Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo Miniatures. Its a fabulous figure & highly recommended.

US Sherman Tank


I found stashed in a box, a long discarded project a few weeks ago.
This resin Sherman had been bascoated, highlighted & shaded,
with the transfers applied & some washes applied.
As I never completed a US Army (I didn't like painting them & sold it a long time ago!)
I'm surprised that I ever started it!
 


Anyway I thought that I would give it some love & finish it off.
Might just have to go off to eBay though as I wont be painting any US troops.

Weird War 2 Zombies

 
Varnished some Zombies today from East Riding Miniatures, sculpted by the late Jim Bowen

So I thought that I would share it.

A couple of Rus

Finished a couple of Drabant Miniatures Rus figures to add to my Viking Warband.
I’ve swapped out the weapons on both figures. 
The Drabant figures are really nice miniatures available from Old Glory UK 
& definatley worth checking out. 
They have Saxons, Normans, Russians, Picts & Vikings in the range. 
Hopefully they will expand some of the ranges.

Rift Grenadiers Finished

Finished painting the Rift Grenadiers, painted the same as standard British Infantry.
The lenses on the resperators have been painted red to represent IR lenses
