Gruntz - 15mm Sci-fi Project (5) - Colonists & Colonial Security


I recently took delivery of my latest order from GZG, this time I have added a number of colonists, colonial security and a couple of types of aliens.

First up a couple of Colonial Security teams:





And the 2nd Team:



 
And their Command, Medic, Engineer(the Engineer mini is from Brigade) units:








On to the Colonists(all GZG apart from the hazmat suited mini which CMG, I think) which were a real pleasure to paint being a nice change from the usual drab military colours:







 




And for those who may remember I said I would be re-painting my Army factions medic, well I did and here it is:


Aliens next time, or possibly some scenic pieces as I am cracking on with some woods/jungles and rocky outcrops.

6mm Sci-Fi/Post Apoc Project (VII) - A new faction

I purchased the start of a (not) Tau 6mm force from Onslaught some time ago now, but have never gotten round to painting any of them and to be honest I will probably be selling them off at some point as I really do have enough Epic forces without starting another.

Before I do that however I decided to paint a small amount as a new faction for my 6mm Sci-Fi skirmish campaign:







Now that I have painted a few I'm slightly tempted to keep hold of the rest of them, as they are lovely models and quick and easy to paint up.

A week at the sea side beckons so I wont be active on here much for the next week or so, although it does give me the chance to re-stock on paints and brushes from one of the numerous hobby shops on the Yorkshire coast.

Wars of the Roses Project (Part 2) - Camps & Commanders

My Wars of the Roses miniatures have had a rare venture out of there box recently as they have been standing in for a human fantasy army and as the Lords & Lands medieval lists have been released they have even been used as actual WotR armies.

As they are based for Impetus they lack individual commanders so I have had to make a few from the last of my spare minis, and whilst I was at it I decided to finish off one of the encampments I had made ages ago but never gotten round to painting.

All the Command stand minis are from Baccus:










The Encampment, minis from Leven, Baccus, Perfect6 and Irregular:










It felt good to reduce the amount of unpainted WotR stuff I have, I really must try to do a unit here an there to get them done.

6mm Fantasy Project (7) - Hero's & Monsters

I have been working through my small pile of spare 6mm fantasy minis finding uses for them and I didn't do too bad, managing to make some command bases for Lords & Lands Fantasy, plus some random monsters for the same game with the bonus that some may double for use in Pocketquest.

First up some random monsters:






 
And these will serve as Command types for Lords & Lands: 



 
And finally as I had more Orcs than I needed for Pocketquest, I decided to make a unit of mercenary Orcs for Lords & Lands(rules will be in the next issue of SSQ):








 
And for those of you who may not have seen, I have updated the PocketQuest page with a bunch of spare minis from Irregular, Microworld and Baccus who will act as extra heroes and villains, I wont repeat the pictures here, just pop over to that page which I will keep updating with my 6mm dungeoneering types rather than double posting here.
