Huscarls, Wastelanders and 15mm Hover cars

Still have a whole batch of vehicles to work on, but the eight D.A.K Panzers now have a proper base coat and should be finished by tomorrow. Saturday at the very latest. Meantime, I've managed to finish the Anglo-Danish Huscarls by snatching a few moments while waiting for airbrushed vehicles to dry on the spray wheel.
Actually, I say they're done but their not quite finished. I need to go over the base rims with another coat of paint once the glue for the static grass has had a chance to dry.

That brings the total number of painted figures for the Saga warband up to 12. So just 24 more to go before the whole warband is ready. I have another order arriving tomorrow  which I'm very excited about: a female dwarf Bloodbowl team from Warlord games. It's a cracking set of figures which should be great fun to paint. The Saga warband will be taking back-seat again until the  Bloodbowl team is finished. Commisioned work takes precedence over miniatures destined for e-bay or convention sales.

I have finished off some of the airbrushed vehicles however. These 15mm civilian vehicles from the old Laserburn range available at 15mm.co.uk took about five minutes each after the airbrushing paint dried. I really like these mini's. There just aren't enough 15mm civilian vehicles on the market right now, although I hear a few other companies plan on releasing some soon.


Finally, we have two more 28mm Post Apocalypse figures. These mini's have been sitting on my desk for about a week now, getting a new colour or layer of shading applied every now and then while I've been waiting for other miniatures to dry. Actual painting time over the course of the last week: about an hour each.

  3. Thanks Ray.

    @ Fran: Aha! That's your secret! I always wondered how you managed to fit in a full-time job with painting so many miniatures for your collection.

  4. Looking good mate. The former Goliath ganger especially, as I never really liked them but he's come out well.
