Great stuff and great variety as always. I like the color choices on the plague marines a lot...

Thanks Kestral. Yeah, the plagues were a fun change of pace (the first Nurgle miniatures I've painted). And, well tentacles have got to be purple, haven't they.

And now for something completely different... a forklift.

This was designed to match the workshop I've shown earlier, in answer to the question "how did those boxes, crates and pallets get on to the roof".


To show rotation and separation of the top and bottom sections:


The pallets:


Scale shots and closer views:

Note the "no step" and "hand hold" signs in the above photo.

Closer views of the cab, it's lights, and the osl:


Interior of the cab, or at least the best photos I can get of the interior...



Together at last with the workshop:


And picking up a friend to take home...


Thanks.

These miniatures are from the Scythe boardgame.

A total of 25 miniatures split between 5 factions: Each faction has one character figure with animal companion, and 4 mech miniatures.
I stuck close to the official artwork for these to maintain ease of recognition on the gameboard.

Character figures.


Together with the mechs of their factions.


Individual character figures (including official artwork for each) :
Olga and Changa (the Siberian Tiger).


Gunther and Nacht (the Dire Wolf).


Zehra and Kar (the Great Steppe Eagle).


Anna and Wojtek (the Bear).


Bjorn and Mox (the Musk Ox).


And the Mechs of each faction (with a tree on one of each set for scale).


Thanks.

Another large group of miniatures. This time it's Pox Walkers.

Not a lot to say about them. Half of them are converted to make the unique from the first 10 (as the box comes with 10 pairs of identical mini's).
There's a nice mix of matt, satin and gloss finishes across the models; e.g. the biohazard suits, the black commissar coat, and a few boots are finished in satin. And, of course, the pus dribbles are finished in gloss.

I hope that they disgust you.

This time it's Robby the Robot.
Couldn't find a quick way to produce a clear dome this time (had a tight deadline), but may revisit it in the future.
Until then, I painted the dome using NMM techniques to show a reflected landscape.
The dome, however, is removable and magnetised.



Better views of legs and close-ups of the head and dome.


And for scale

This time I have an Eldar Dire avenger to share with you.

As a combination of an idea from my ever-growing list, and the theme for Nerfest09's Nerdcademy painting contest.

A tyranid hunter, with a Tyranid Warrior's head for a shield, and painted in the Leviathan hive-fleet colour scheme.


and some fun shots.

Thanks bubber.

Thanks darkstar6783. I'd settle for more sales, but an award would be nice.

The latest model completed is all Sigur's fault. He showed off his painted SDE wolfrider figure, and I immediately saw the obvious inspiration they took from Princess Mononoke (the Anime from Studio Ghibli).
I like San so much that I just had to get that miniature and convert it to be a proper princess Mononoke model, and not a copyright-dodging inspired-by miniature.

I also felt that it needed a display base, and that became quite a project in itself.

Nice, some really cool things in here, sometimes the simplest conversions are the best.

I really like the Dire Avenger Tyranid hunter. Lots of the Eldar models look so much better with a bit or raw brutality mixed in!

Thanks Scythern.
Yeah, you don't always need to change everything about a model to make it unique.

You can thank the combination of 2 separate inspirations for the 'nid hunter.

A squad of Inceptors.
Painted in a "white" and metallic scheme due to the "jumping from space" thing. Stopped just short of adding a NASA logo.

I used 9 different metallic paints on these as to not just have all the same metal all over.

And I placed them all on scenic bases to avoid using the clear flight stands they come with, but keep them at about the correct height.









Thanks.

Well, ok these are not entirely made of plastic, in fact you could say these are made of clay,.and the only plastic in both of them is the bases, that you can't see, and the shapes are bulked out with polystyrene foam, which you also can't see... but they are random...

The last miniature from the Dark Imperium box set is the Foetid Bloat-drone, and I couldn't leave it at stock...

Rather than floating on turbine fans, this bloat drone skitters and strides about on legs.

I give you, the purple people eater, a Foetid Bloat-drone tripod conversion.
I also scratch-built the 2 additional weapons and magnetised all 3.

Which config' would you rather face?

Based on a bookshelf insert I saw on the internet a long time ago and added to my list of thing to do one day...
I discovered after I had finished it, that these things have become popular and are known as a "book nook".

Using a pair of Mithril LotR miniatures that I didn't otherwise know what to do with.
There is also a LED at the rear of the piece to cast light from where the path is leading.

I present my Mirkwood Book Nook, with Elrond and Thranduil.

With a sole remaining tusk mirrored by a gold lip ring on his lower jaw, "One Toof" lives up to that name. But the Nob is so much more than a name.

Built to be the most un-comic-relief Ork, he's not Posh, Sporty, Baby or Ginger... He's one Scary Ork. I hope you will agree.

Highly modified from a stock Nob kit; reposed, bulked up and added to.
