Hullo All,

So - one of my resolutions this year is to be more productive... 2016 seems to have had far too much time given over to planning and the initial phases of projects, and not enough time given over to bloody well getting on with it.

Part of which is kicking off my Inq28/General Sci-Fi characters project - I've come to the conclusion that 15mm Sci-Fi as I've been painting isn't really working for me - not as characterful as 28mm and not as space saving as 6mm. I'll still be painting 15mm, just not for small, character based projects.

So, I'm back with 28mm kitbashing. These characters are intended to work in both an Inq28 setting but also a more general sci-fi setting I use a lot... sort of Rogue Trader, sort of Star Wars. 'Used Future' rather than grimdark.

He's a bounty hunter, suffering from a horrific mutation, held in check only by a hugely expensive serum. Hence turning to the dangerous but lucrative bounty work (his Inq28 background is different, more Nurgly).

Still a bit to do but the metals and skin is pretty much there. Gun and gun hand still need a bit of depth though. Gosh, my brushstrokes aren't too smooth in the pictures.

Very nice!  8)

Is he working solo or will there be his 'associates' appearing later on?

Thanks all.

@Pocoloco - no I think he'll be a lonesome warrior - he's actually a 'proof of concept' from when I was playing with converting the genestealer cultists into nurgle cultists. I like him, but don't fancy making any more because I'm using the cultist bodies for something else. So now he's a bounty hunter!

Edit - changed 'bugle' for 'nurgle'... bloody spellcheck!

Shame - he is all sorts of gribbily nastiness.

Great work.

Great painting, and his back story is wonderful.

A sad character, reflected in his visage.

That's pretty neat! I like the conversion and the overall looking, fits perfectly in the ambientation you are looking for :)

My word, that is brilliant. I would love to see some bugle cultists, though!

'ullo,

Well - been quite a while since I've had something to post in here.

Inspired by the very excellent Crooked Dice release of the old Palduron terrain I've been inspired to slowly gather and paint up some 28mm 'Wasteland' minis - I've kept this idea in my sci-fi thread because this is definitely the sci-fi, future wars end of post-apocalypse that I'm going for.

Before ordering anything though I wanted to get back in the swing of painting 28s, because I don't always enjoy it. I dug in the lead pile and pulled out these chaps from Pig Iron - really good minis, glad Pig Iron stayed on the scene as a brand.



I went for a speed painting method on these scruffbags - I usually basecoat/wash/rebasecoat then apply 2 or 3 highlights. On these I skipped the 'rebasecoat' stage and used the original basecoat colour as Highlight 1. It's made them murkier, but so much quicker to paint. I'm not sure I'd use this method for many other styles of mini, but I'm pleased with the overall effect on these. The only mistake is that I made the robes very grubby, and with the basing choice I probably should have made them dusty - I might dabble with some pigment to fix that.

Anyway - now these are up and running I'll treat myself to a little terrain. There's a real danger here that I'm going to retread the same setting I've done in my 15mm sci-fi thread, so I'm going to try and focus on human wastelanders, fairly low tech, and not too many aliens or muties. Maybe...

They look brilliant, and thank you for including how you painted them. I like Pig Iron too, I have a cultist force revolving around their figures but I would like to do mutants too at some point.

Thanks very much. Yeah, great figs - good chunky detail, nice and clear. I did have to sculpt the hoods so they held a bit closer to the heads, but that's just me being picky!
