The Last of the 2016...

I know, I know, I promised pictures of the Pelta, and there are still more Deathwatch to come, but I thought I'd close things out with the last miniatures to be painted this year, one of them just today, in fact. 

Some of you might recognize this lovely demonhunter from the rapidly expanding Wargames Exclusive range; she came as part of a 3-pack of Heresey Hunter Dominators (her sisters are being pinned even now) which is actually a much MUCH better deal than buying all three separately.A word to the wise, though; while their range is actually quite good (yes, some of their models are cheesecake pin ups) some of them tend to have rather delicate joining points and parts. The two-sword sister broke a hilt, and I had to end up doing some creative repair. All in all, still an excellent buy. Go check them out. 

Judge Duvic here started life as Nicodem the Undertaker from the Wyrd miniatures range. Sharp eyes will note his mechanical left leg, and I've given him a bolt pistol and done some extensive refitting of his vulture. This mini also suffers from some questionable casting decisions, sadly. The vulture head/neck came separately, strangely enough, as did his vulture-mount arm (which had to be pinned). I had extra servo skulls from a Forgworld Castellax, and some Dragon Forge metal pipe and another bit were enough to turn it into a cyber-familiar of sorts. 

Yegor Vladmiroff, the witch hunter is a new mini from the Reaper range, Jakob Knochengard. I removed the zombie head he was toting around and gave him a more useful lantern. I'd originality bought him fro use in Frostgrave, but I think he'll serve well as part of an Inquisitorial war band. 

Happy New Year, everybody.

(X-Wing) Flagship WIP #2

Getting there, getting there. Now with an A-Wing for scale. 

She has a real hard-weathered, acid-washed look to her, like someone's been parking her somewhere nasty. I suppose, dating from the Clone Wars, she wasn't going to be new and shiny.

X-Wing Flagship WIP's

Yes, my desk is a shambles. Yes, the lighting is terrible. Yes, those are Tau burst cannons acting as anti-ship turrets. 

Yes, those AA guns are from Vanguard miniatures. Yes, they are on the top and bottom of the hinges. 

Yes, she is rather long. Yes, I forgot to put an A-Wing fighter in there for scale. Yes, that is Vash the Stampede in the background.

Yes, she is a bit blotchy; you would be too if you survived a Clone War. Yes, those nubs are life pods.
