Nice one, I think it was the angle of the pictures, it looks like the base has no bevelled edge.


It has a bevelled edge. That's the main reason I ordered a base rather than just buying some mini CD's. Took a while to find an 80mm plain bevelled edged base.

It's just not as prominent as on a normal base because it's twice the thickness.

@SN, nice line up, dude. Get some paint on 'em!

Still bevelled. All of my Haqq are on standard bevelled CB bases with sand and rocks made of cork tile. The only one that isn't is the Maggy, which didn't come with a CB base so I ordered a bevelled plain base.

SuperNewb, you'll find that those Yu Jing from the starter box paint up nicely. I was very pleased with the minis, and I don't even play Yu Jing. Just be careful with the Hsien's sword. It sticks way out from the base, and is easily bent.

Thanks for the tip!

I'm still building additional troops and have run into some snags with huge gaps that need filling with Green Stuff. For example, the back pack of the Su Jian does not fit at all! I have sanded it, tried to bend it, and basically resounded to glue it in place and then fill the large gaps. The head of the model does not touch the back pack as it's supposed to, so I may have to bridge the gap with Green Stuff.

I also am a bit frustrated about the lack of good 360 degree photos to rotate and the lack of any building instructions anywhere online. I'm still trying to figure out how to put the backpack/gun assembly for the Yan Huo HMC. The same with the Shaolin Monks. Lots of bits, no instructions, LOL. 4 heads, but not sure which ones go on which body!

Slowly but surely. Still having fun with it!

I built it recently and had zero issues. Backpack fit fine.

Haven't done this in a while, so I dug out all of my Haqqislam. Everything I've painted:



Pile of shame.

Much like the Maghariba, this has been in my queue for about 2 years waiting to be finished.

Weird, I completely missed that. Looks good, Loki!

I couldn't sleep so I decided to play about with photoshop, test some colour schemes and make a template so I can do it again whenever I want. Bit rough around the edges but I knocked out a couple of variations for my Nomads. May as well post it here:

I know what you mean, Keezus! I keep having to stop myself from adding things, I ended up pulling right back on it near the end oddly enough, dropped down to one bust and I'll add a couple more things in Backerit. Before that I was about to buy it all but I just don't have a use for most of it, Kickstarter is the devil.

Good job, Loki! At least someone around here is keeping the brushes wet! You not kept up the ole blog?

I've just been wasting more time on photoshop because... reasons.

I might redo these using the render, those arm sections are hell to recolour. I also think I'll end up using desert sand and olive drab rather than one or the other.

I feel like the stock scheme is a bit cartoonish for Morats and I want to paint mine up with a bit more realism. So I tried out some more realistic skin and hair tones and added some racial diversity, I quite like how it came out. As much as a like the teal and aqua armour, I might use it for another project so I'll try a few more options next.

I really don't need to post these here but it seems silly to wake up my blog for this and I want to record it somewhere.

I discovered long ago my painting pace is not conducive with keeping a plog going. I'm content to throw pictures in here.

More photoshop, honing the overall look for my Bakunin.

I'll be very impressed if anyone gets the obscure reference in there.

Personal best - three and a half weeks, seven finished miniatures from metal to done.

Started with Leila Sharif, since I really want to use her more. While painting here, I figured I might try to knock out a couple of really old models from my collection. So I grabbed the last two 1st edition Ghulam, the Hacker and HMG. As I neared finishing them, I decided to also knock out my three Hafza. As they neared completion, I decided to do my Al Hawwa Hacker. Then I decided that was enough and I really shoudl just finish painting them all.

I converted up some Shikami for my JSA.

I'd picked up another player's excess YJ a while back, and they included a Hac-tao and a Zuyong, neither of which I could use in my YJ, so I was proxying them as my Shikami (HI) - since there was no concept art or idea of what they looked like.

Recently (Rumble on Rt66 or Adepticon) they showed dossier concept art for them. So I decided to try my hand sculpting some O-yoroi Hakama and kasa/jingasa (not sure which is more accurate) - conical hats onto these models to make them look more like what they are proxying as.



Contender on the left, combi rifle on the right.

Apart from that, my corregidor got some Banguars (they will be both my Jaguars and my Bandits, depending on need (there is a 5th with a glue-gun) that I'm still working on.

2nd from right can be light shotgun, combi or boarding shotgun - damn, his sword seems to have fallen off (standard nomad sword from the spec ops kit, I'm not a fan of the weird squared off machete thing the bandits have).

And I finished gun rack #1 for my Gecko Hangar. Holds 3 long arms - 2 combis and a mk12, and will have empty slots for whichever loadout my gecko has (so there'll be one with a single mk12 in it, the other will have two combis).
