Raedwald’s Sci Fi Thread (p.3 - apprehended Abdul Goldburg)
« on: December 28, 2021, 11:33:44 AM »
Hi All,

After many years of mainly lurking I thought I’d take the leap and share some of my humble efforts here on LAF. Plus, doing so ticks off one of my hobby objectives for 2021 as we reach the end of another year.

I took what was meant to be a short break from Sci Fi platoon painting to paint up some individual figures this year. As it turned out, with the schools being closed due to COVID and then multiple colds, Raedwaldsdottir spent a lot of time at home, and I never did manage to get back to the platoons (jobs for 2022 now! - although 5 Parsecs is really dragging me into more skirmish stuff).

Below are:
- A freebie from one of the early Colony 87 launches, painted up as a Confrontation / Necromunda Caryatid (minor conversion with the basing and gun swap).
- Classic Copplestone News Crew, from EM4 I think.
- Necromunda Escher Heavy.
- Necromunda Orlock Ganger, with a head swap from a Hasslefree dwarf.
- Warzone Cartel Agent.
- Warzone Bodyguard (also from the Cartel Agents set).

Now to see if I can finish off anything else before the New Year. Have a good one everyone.

Fantastic selection! I love Copplestone and Goodwin sculpts, and it's great to see an Escher in a more subdued colour scheme. The caryatid's tattoos are awesome, but that Orlock head swap is inspired!

Wow, thanks all, you're too kind, especially knowing how talented so many of you LAF legends are!

@Lord Faoil & @Axiom - The Caryatid's tattoos are one of those things where I went to town with the planning; gathering images and thinking to line them on with pencil before painting over - then when it came to it I ended up just making it up as I went along! I wasn't overly pleased in the end, but I guess we all feel that way when what we create ends up nothing like what was in our heads  ^_^ .

@Cacique Caribe - He sure is, it's the killer eyes I think.

@Axiom - I'm totally with you on Copplestone and Goodwin, the bulk of my lead pile is Goodwin elves and Eldar, and just this month I added to it with a mass of Copplestone minis from North Star - massive purchase vs. paint deficit this year u_u .

Cheers all!

Many thanks guys!

@War Monkey - I did post a couple of ‘action shots’ featuring some of these minis in the Small Skirmish Games child board, to give myself closure on an excessively long Rogue Stars game write up I did several years ago.

I’ve also finished an industrial unit to round off the year (well sort of - I might still add some odd bits of debris and some posters), so I thought I’d share some the terrain I completed this year, which partly made up for the paltry miniature painting output.

Apologies for the poor quality photos. Items are:
- Scratch built industrial unit, made from food packaging, electronic scrap, novelty straws and Antenocitis control pads.
- Microart Studios food booths (including an homage to my favourite ‘90s animation, Dr Katz).
- Microart Studios fuel drums.
- Puppets War stone walls.

Cheers all, Happy New Year!

Hi all,

I’ve finally finished the To’ok Fencibles from Zombiesmith that I’ve been working on between other bits for an age.

I really like these figures for their original look and the motion in their poses. I bought them long ago when they were sold in squad size packs, not like now when they’re in odd mixed groups. Lovely figures and fun to paint.

I did some minor conversions on the leader waving his troops forward, weapon swaps for the RPGs and machine guns (which replaced limpet mines I wasn’t keen on), and an underslung grenade launcher for each fireteam.

Below are photos of the four fireteams, each with a rifle, specialist, leader and grenadier.

Cheers,
Raedwald

This may be the first time I have seen those anywhere other than the Zombiesmith website. I like you painting and conversions a lot - they make a great mid-tech alien squad!
