Silhouette Miniatures

So whilst browsing Google+ one day (yes, someone still uses G+!), I discovered a wargamer playing with some paper miniatures, printed on their normal printer. Just simple silhouettes of modern soldiers, but effective enough for proxies on the cheap.

So I decided to go one better, and 3D print my own equivalent!

Information is Ammunition!

So, not much painting progress for a while… But I have been doing some in the background! I love Battletech, and loved the animated series, so I’ve started painting some mech’s based on the schemes in that show, and in the action figure line. Got a lance of the First Somerset Strikers done, and started on some Jade Falcon opposition…

If it bleeds, we can kill it

Finished up my predators the other day (one in a stealth suit). I went too heavy with too dark a wash, took forever to bring  any life back to this mini.
My 15mm AvP skirmish set is nearing completion though! The Marines are well underway, including an APC converted from a 99p shop toy firetruck. I just wish I’d taken some in progress pics, ah well.

Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

So I painted up some Xenos this week. I apologize for the photo, that much black doesn’t play well with my potato cam skills.
But these are some Khurusan “space demon” minis, with a judicious bit of greenstuff to round out their heads. Now to get some good marines for a nice Aliens set. Also going to make some greenstuff eggs as objective markers… But my sculpting needs more practice first!
***UPDATE***
I recently got a phone with a much better camera, so enjoy some nicer pictures. There are details now!

Space Lizards!

I finished a squad of Saurians from 15mm.co.uk, and I’m happy with how they came out. The white and yellow spacesuit colours contrast nicely with the green skin. And my highlighting blends nice and naturally, although its not very prominent. I’ve kept the same basing technique as well, so they match my previous squad nicely.
The only thing I need to change is how I do weapons, as I don’t think they look as good as the rest of the model.
Now I have 2 squads, its time to make some nice terrain, and play some 5 parsecs!
Apologies for the crappy pics, I’m working on a ghetto lightbox at the moment!
