My final, final post for 2011

I forgot to add in my photos of my eagle riders (also from Splintered Light), so these should have been included in the previous post.

My final post for 2011

Well another year nearly over and I have a few new miniatures etc that I have managed to finish in the last couple of days.  I have started to paint up my British forces for use in Napoleon at War, Lasalle and my eventual home brew of a Nap version of Rally Round the King and my wood elf army has had some new additions as well.  Unfortunately my last decent brush has now died so painting has stalled.

Any way on to the pictures:

The first are some new 15mm hulk pieces, mainly more corridors, a room and some x-roads again with the alien hive on some of them.  I have combined the pieces when I took the photos so the below will show all the current pieces.

The next photos are of my Wood Elf Cavalry from Splintered Light miniatures.  They give the option of having the elves ride horses or elks, so this time I thought that I would go for something different and go with the Elks.

The last set of photos are of my British cavalry.  I only have 2 out of the 8 bases painted.

Well that concludes tonight’s presentation and I hope that everyone has a great 2012. Smile

More 15mm scenery

Having started work at a PCYC vacation centre (during the school holidays), the last 2 weeks have just disappeared.  I went from working 24hrs for the fortnight up to 75+ hours so I have had very little enthusiasm to do anything but now that I have some holidays, I thought I would post up some scenery that I have been working on (unfortunately no gaming so far) and just haven’t had a chance to post up.

The first series of photos are my 15mm hulk/base.  I have purchased a large force of Khurasan Space demons so I can use them to play alien hulk with them.  I was hoping that my order would have arrived before Christmas but Santa must have placed them at the bottom of his sack.  I have also taken the opportunity to increase my Felid army as well so I will post photos when they arrive.

I will at some point paint more details on the consoles etc.

The second are bases that I have made up for Lasalle (15mm Napoleonic game) and will be used as town bases.  I like them so much they will probably be my default town pieces for most games.  They are 4inches (10cm) square.

Apologies for the crappy photos but the living room has way to many lights and no matter how I try,, I can’t remove the shadows.  I have started to add alien hive to the pieces and will also place it on the space demons’ bases.  This was inspired by the bases the Mr. Bug Man has used on his bases.

Here are a couple of comparison shots of my 15mm and 28mm hulk pieces.  The 28mm piece in the photo is not yet fully painted.

While I really like the larger versions, the smaller one is quicker and simpler to make, so I will end up making the official Space Hulk version (see earlier posts) as well as the 15mm version.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas too you all.

Return of the forgotten project

It has been nearly 2 years since I worked on my Space Hulk project.  I managed to make and paint enough sections to play the first mission with and then moved on to other projects.  As I haven’t been able to get the time in to play my first game of Rally Round the King, I have been able to revisit this project while some renewed enthusiasm hit.  Unfortunately I have run out of hydrocal so it cannot go any further until I get some more.

Before I ran out though, I have managed to make enough pieces to make up floor pieces for the latest edition of the game as well as having enough industrial and pipe pieces to edge the board sections.  I have managed to make up a number of complete sections mainly t-intersections and other corridor pieces  but I have also managed to make up all but 2 of the rooms.

Here are some photos of a couple of the rooms that have been built and painted.

The first room is my version of the 4 x 3 room.  I have designed it as a teleporter room and you can see the two teleporting pads.

This picture is obviously the completed picture and then a close up of the energy cells.

This is first time that I have tried to paint this sort of effect.  Not too bad for a first attempt.

This next room I have made 2 of the walls as barricades as I envisage that the room is larger and that some unknown defenders hastily built up these barricades to help defend themselves.  You can see 3 sentry guns that were also used in the defence.
