Miniature Monday – Show me your Project
Here we go – you sent us pictures of the projects you did in the meantime, and it was quite a lot!
(posting by Antonia)
Since we, of course! have not much time for writing, I’ll just show you all the pictures and give just a little comment, and maybe you can answer questions or give extra infos in the comments?
Dirk took some photos of his ships and planets for the “Star Trek – Attack Wing” tabletop game.
Besides of looking quite great, the ships are also – believe it or not – completely scratch built from bits, toys and, mostly, “garbage” 😀 Incredible how much the right paint job can do. Can you figure out the components?
Tina sent us pics of her painted “Malifaux” warband:
I don’t know much about the gaming system, but as far as I know you have small groups of characters and followers, so you can dedicate more time to painting each of them.
I especially like the multi-tailed fox – you can find a close-up of it at the beginning of the article 🙂
William painted minis for use with his Heroquest boardgame plus a partially converted dwarf pirate:
He wrote that he chose the models because his children needed female charcter minis too (the original boardgame only contains male heroes) and I think that’s a wonderful thing to do 🙂
The picture also shows his progress as a painter: The dwarf and the wizard are new paintjobs while barbarian and elf were painted some time ago.
The pirate dwarf is a wonderful model, especially this version, in which William swapped the gun with a bottle and did a really great job with painting the glassy effect! Wow!
Kylie finished some projects and started others anew 🙂
Inspired by previous Mini Mondays Kylie wanted to paint more animal companions/familiars, so she did a great fox and parrot – cool idea, painting the bird as tropical opens a whole new world of possibilities!
The bat swarm was done for her husband’s wargame army (Age of Sigmar) and the flesh golem, which was obviously (and patiently 😉 ) waiting on a “to-do” pile, finally got a structured base In the end she told us she painted all this in a weekly local game store painting group, a great way to keep up the painting spirit – just like some weekly (or two weekly) blog posting 😉
Jim also had a lot of minis done:
I can see some of the minis we featured on this blog (the symbol on the red/blue shield looks very good, is it a freehand or a delicate decal?) , and also cars and tanks – where are they for, Jim? Some kind of tabletop strategy game? And the red car – it looks quite “Mad Max” to me 😀
Arjen’s snow troll arrived later!
This piece is a very detailed (and seemingly rather expensive) resin mini by Heresy Miniatures. Arjen said it was a real joy to paint due to the fine detail of fur and face. I agree with him that this guy is an unusual take on the subject and, I may quote, “he looks like he would give the abominable snowman nightmares”.
