Howdy everyone, sorry for the slow amount of updates recently but I've not really had much in the way of updates to show off. I recently sort of completed my attempt to undercoat and base everything I own ready for paint slappage but ran out of space about three quarters of the way through so there are still a fair few mini's languishing in drawers.
Hopefully now I can pick up anyone of a ton of mini's and just crack on with painting something, which is what I did:
From left to right:
Citadel C34 Fire Elemental, Dreamblade Gutsoup Golem, Dreamblade Hulking Brute, Grenadier Copplestone Barbarian, Grenadier Ghost and finally dungeons and Dragons plastic mini with a little conversion work.
I love these Citadel elemental's that were released in the early eighties and would love to own the whole set but sadly I'm not the only one and they always seem to go for a little outside my price range on the old ebay, I only managed to get hold of this one as it was included in a bulk lot and didn't even appear in the ebay picture.
Next up we have the Gutsoup Golem from Dreamblade, really simple paint job that was mostly achieved with washes, glazes and thinned down paint finished off with a healthy dose of tamiya red and clear for that wet look. If you're in need of some crazy monsters check out the Dreamblade range as they always seem to pop up on ebay for cheap and paint up really well.
Another Dreamblade figure this time a Hulking Brute, I'm not to sure on this guy I think he needs some kind of tattoos or scarification to break up all the flesh.
Grenadier Copplestone Barbarian, really simple paint job and a ton of Tamiya clear red. You can still get this guy from EM4:
I think this guy is a dungeon and dragons pre pained mini, He originally had a small hook like weapon that due to the bendy nature of the plastic that these figures are made of was completely ruined. I removed the hook and drilled through the hand and added the cocktail stick and wire club.
Grenadier Ghost, insanely quick paint job I just fired some watered down blue over the grey base coat added some fluorescent yellow to the face and left it at that.
