Ultramarines WIP

It's being a while since I last posted. I've being painting more 40k stuff and here they are.
 I will be honest I've gone for a slightly lighter shade of blue on them but it seems to have worked pretty well. The basing I'm still toying with but I've got plenty of ideas, so it will be deciding which one rather than struggling for ideas. The transfers are still to be added and a small amount of finishing up is required but I'm pretty impressed so far.

 So thanks for looking
Cheers for now Russ

Another Biker

This time I decided my new Biker was going to have his "old lady" with him. I finished the Biker 2 or 3weeks ago but his old lady didn't look right! so I ended up changing a few bits. So here they are
 They are really nice models, pretty much like all the project Z stuff available. You can mix and match the parts from the kits and end up with some unique figures. 
 The pillion passengers really add to the models, I don't plan on adding to many but it gives you more options and they are a nice touch 

 It was tempting to build a figure that resembles Arnie from Terminator but I decided to give it a miss! Well for now at least.
 So my Biker gang is slowly starting to grow, I still need to paint up the leader and his old lady which are in the middle of the build process. 
So thanks for looking and catch you all soon

Blitzkrieg Germans

I have added some Blitzkrieg Germans to my slightly stalled Bolt Action collection. They are nice figures and I must say I enjoyed painting them more than I expected! So here is my first 10 man squad
 I still need to add a few grass tufts to the bases but other than that they are ready to roll. 
 I am a bit of a plastics fan and the more sets I get the more bits and pieces I can add to my bits box. The warlord games sets do mix and match nicely, although in the past I have raided victrix Napoleonic parts to add more variety to the poses u you can achieve straight from the box. 
 I do seem to have more projects then I have time for! But that's nothing new with me. 
 So as always thanks for looking and I will post again soon! Well that's the plan!

Victrix Spartans

I just don't seem to have had the time lately to get anything finished, it's all bits and pieces and stuff for other people! Not that I'm complaining but my blog has suffered a little so I took some photos of my Spartans. I painted them a while back but other stuff took over and I haven't posted any pictures here, well not till now!
 it's my usual poor attempts at taking pictures but hopefully they will give you an idea of what they look like. They are Victrix miniatures and they paint up nicely! 
   shield's really seem to make them, and I can honestly say they are all my own work. No real achievement when you see how easy they are to copy. 
 The red and white really seem to work well, I varied it a bit but hopefully the uniformity is still there. I'm pretty pleased with the overall look, and the basing seems to have worked out nicely. 
 So thanks for looking and hopefully I will be posting more stuff real soon
    So cheers for now

Project Z Bikers

I took a few photos the other day of these two but they turned out blurred. So second time lucky! 
   Project Z is underway and my first two bikers have hit the road ready to cause mayhem! You could almost call them  "Men of Mayhem" although my Biker gang is "devil's own" 
So this is the beginning of my road warrior's on their iron horses! The box comes with a shed load of spare parts and they can mix with the other project Z sets, so it's mix and match to your heart's content. You get a chance to build the bikes in different ways,  and the Bikers and Biker old ladies get a fair amount of choice with all the parts included in the box. 
I raided the transfer stash from all the kits I have spares from and added some freehand lettering. 
 So SID and his brother biker take to the road to kill zombies and maybe just raise hell! 
 So I've two more in the early stages of construction so I should have doubled my collection of Bikers by the next project Z update. The only one drawback of the biker gang box set is the gang leader figure, he is unique in appearance! I should add I picked up two box's so the second leader figure will take some converting to make him different in appearance. 

So stay tuned for my next installment and thanks for looking

Space wolves

I have being working on these little fellas on and off mixed in with other projects. I seemed to gone full circle in my tastes for future projects, I started my hobby life with games workshop and airfix as I'm guessing many if us did. So to the figures
 The amount of spare parts in this kit mean I could probably convert another 10 standard space Marines into space wolves and still have more parts left to go at. 
 I mixed a few helmets into the mix despite hearing that space wolves veer away from wearing them, you certainly get some heads in the box that scream character! Crazy hair styles and manic expressions! 
 Hopefully it shouldn't be to long before I post again! So thanks for looking 
Cheers for now Russ

Project Z

I have started toying with a new Project! Project Z from Warlord Games. I suppose I have finally being bitten by the zombie bug, no pun intended!
        They are really nice figures, and they have a good selection of figures from survivors to biker gangs! More of the bikers in later posts!
 They are the first of many! Male survivors with a single female survivors thrown in for good measure. 
 Nice figures, plenty of spares and some awesome weaponry included! So that's the beginning of a new project despite my promise's of no new projects until I've cleared some of the lead/plastic mountain. 

So thanks for looking
