The clear out continues German Armour

The clear out continues, this time its German vehicles, all from Warlord Games. Mostly plastic except for the armoured car, which is resin and metal. So on to the goodies

A couple of stuGs

 both have additional log side armour added, and are detailed in both scratchbuilt additions and bought stowage. I'm asking £45 each or both for £80

A couple of Panzer 111's 

 easiest way of describing them is long and short barrel, additional stowage added. Once again £45 each for both for £80 

Hanomags and armoured car

 once again stowage and some interior detailing added. £38 each or all 3 for £110. I'm going to the other partizan Sunday 18th August 2019 and I'm willing to bring them if anyone is interested.

And finally the last levy

 A mix of old and young defenders ready to battle for the father land, 14 figures in total will accept £60. All based on rubble strewn bases. 

So the clear out continues and I'm slowly beginning to regain control of my hobby room. I'm trying my best not commit to anything new until I at least have space for it, but hey I am going to Partizan so that could all change.

 Thanks for looking

40k chaos Terminators

I've completed the next few models for my friends 40k chaos army, this time it's a mix of old and new Terminators with what I believe are forgeworld parts. The newer models seem cleaner and less fussy but that's just from a painter's point of view. I do enjoy painting stuff I normally wouldn't paint for myself. So on to the figures

 I added a few more bits and pieces to the bases just to make them pop a little. 
 the five new Terminators out of the ten.

 I slightly converted a couple into more dramatic poses, running forward to join the fight.

On to the five old style Terminators 

 I'm not sure if I got carried away to much with the bases or not, but I sure did enjoy myself.

So as always thanks for looking

The 9th Kentucky

I have managed to complete my latest additions for my steadily growing ACW collection, this time its more Rebs. Just for a change they are Dixon Miniatures! Like every single figure in my ACW collection. I am a creature of habit and slightly OCD about certain hobby matters.

   The 9th Kentucky

 I decided I wanted to portray a earlier unit from the war rather then the usual later years that I collect. I'm no expert and occasionally I do get it wrong hopefully this won't be one of those times. 

 This is one unit which I havn't tampered with by adding conversions or even stripes for NCO's. Normally I cant help myself but these are literally a straight paintjob. 

 The boys charging hopefully to glory! 

 I'm pretty biased I'm afraid, the rebs in my collection outnumber the Yankees and I dont think that will ever change. 

So thanks for looking, feel free to comment

40k chaos

I've painted a few more 40K bits and pieces for a small commission for a good friends 40k army. I like 40k and the wealth of figures it offers but I've never committed to chaos in the collecting stakes myself. So on to the figures, some are converted slightly although I only stuck the parts together I'm not sure who makes some of the parts.

Bring on the big guns

 most of the figures needed to be raised up slightly so the ammo belts sat correctly. They sat below the height of the base so it made sense to raise up the base rather than cut down the ammo belt.  As always ripped up cork was used, it's not as heavy as slate but looks presentable once painted. 

 I love the red and gold it suits these guys down to the ground. 

The beast! 

I've painted a couple of these in the past but this is the first one I've painted with tentacles. They are proper beasts, armoured and a mix of machine and living parts! Just how chaos should be. 

 The larger base gave me a chance to play around abit and go to town! 

The crates are Rubicon ww2 German accessories, with a few Space marine transfers applied. The rusted metal gives it a good contrast and a splash of colour, and the abandoned weapon and equipment the impression of a hastily retreat. 

So another commission completed, and hopefully a very happy customer into the bargain. 

So thanks for looking, feel free to comment.
