Conversion Clinic!

Hi!

Just a quick update!

Ive been messing round with greenstuff and have converted one of my GIs so hes wearing some chunky sci-fi armour:


Captain Gristle of the Space Marines!

Hes a bit rough and ready but at 15mm scale its not too noticeable. I may convert a squad to support him as and when I get time!

Ive also rummaged out a couple of my painted cowboy figures from Peter Pig that Im using as frontier types. These chaps are unconverted but Ive done a bit of fiddling around with a couple of others so they have backpacks, lasers and even a couple of heavy weapons. Hopefully I will get them painted over the course of the weekend (along with Captain Gristle!)


Assorted Frontier Types

The Peter Pig miniatures paint up really nicely and I cant wait to crack on with a few more!

All the best!

A Handy Find!

Hi!

Well Im at my folks and have found some rather decent peter pig 15mm stuff in a box. The lot consists of a batch of WW2 US infantry and an assortment of wild west types. I plan on adding a few bits of green stuff to convert the infantry to a local militia (possibly from Paradiso Aqui allowing me to field Jim diGriz in a presidential election campaign) and the wild west types are going to make a nice group of lowlifes and frontier settlers!

Also in the box were some resin buildings and some vehicles which will allow me to add some much needed scenic madness to the table!

Law Enforcement!

Hi!

Just a quick update!

Heres a couple of bits I have been working on:

First off theres the police skimmer from 15mm.co.uk. I was quite disappointed when they arrived as they are pretty puny and the actual skimmer is really poorly made (its not even round and the detailing is pretty rubbish!) I decided to beef it up a bit with the addition of a 30mm round lipped base. It makes it a bit more substantial and painted up ok.


Police Skimmer

I decided to go for a green and white colour combination rather than the usual blue (Its the Bit o' Heaven police department colours from A Stainless Steel Rat is Born)

Next up is my police droid again from 15mm.co.uk. This guy has quite a bit more character (I love his dalek head and spindly arms!) I plan on using him as either a bodyguard for my police chief or in independent action to attempt to capture Jim diGriz!


Security Droid

Ive still got to complete the bases for both (I may go for a more warm earthy tone as the previous miniatures look a bit cold!) Next up I will try and get a squad of police types along with the police chief done!

All the best!

Lack of Updates!

Hi!

Apologies for the lack of updates at the mo but I am really busy with uni work and am barely getting enough time to sleep let alone paint any miniatures (so much for the easy life of the art student!) Still I am almost there now and will have a grand total off 4 months of holidays to look forward too!)

I have spent my spare time (what little there is!) re-reading the Stainless Steel rat books and now have a list of over 100 characters to work at ranging from Special Corps agents to assorted villains, minions and heroes so I have plenty of inspirational material to work from!

Hopefully once my uni stuff is finished in the next couple of weeks I will be able to get some more stuff painted!


Till then all the best!
