Cats and Camps

This time, just some simple bits to add to scenes.

Some long-haired cats from Bad Squiddo

And the hunter's camp from Mantic Games

Goblins in Space

Space goblins, from the "Space Raiders - The Space Goblins!" kickstarter by Diego Jose Serrate Pinilla.

The whole gang
Eleven goblins in total

Orcs in Space!

Space orcs, from the "Space Raiders - The Space Goblins!" kickstarter by Diego Jose Serrate Pinilla

I got a couple of the heavy armor guys, the leader with the blue hair and the orc in the power armor. And a set of the Orc Commandos, the leader in the animal pelt, and the other four orcs. I painted them up in a mix of colors, so as not to be too uniform. They came out rather dark and grimy, which I think is suitable for such figures.

Elves coming out of the woodwork

I finished a batch of Reaper elves. These are all over the place in sculpting style. Big heads, little heads, taller, shorter, different body proportions. In the end I like some better than others and will probably not keep all of them. Also, I think using flesh wash over everything may have been a mistake, but I am not thrilled about going back over everything. It was a lot of figures to paint at one time as it was.

Seven More Dwarves

My latest.
The free Reaper "Black" ogre from a couple of months ago.

Seven more dwarves from Lead Adventures. They have a good assortment of female dwarves as well as male ones. They fit in well with GW and Foundry dwarves.

Group shot (including some large candlesticks also from lead adventures - good for set dressing)

(sorry for the yellow cast to these pics. I don't know how to set my camera to balance the light when I don't use the flash indoors.)

Finished a few more minis. I think these are all Reaper metal minis, mostly from fantasy lines, but I glued a hand with a laser pistol from the Heresy minis to the hand of the pirate elf to make her a space pirate elf. Any or all of them could be used as civilians in Core Space, and some (especially the pirate) could be used as crew or even a captain.

From left to right, space pirate elf (she's not really that much taller than the others, it's just that she's standing closer to the camera), fancy elf (ambassador, merchant, or other higher class civilian), alien pet, pirate lady or merchant? (human painted blue in time-honored sci-fi tradition), magic-user (psiker or merchant or other civilian type).

Terrain is from Battle Systems Galactic terrain set. 

The pistol hand is one of the things I glued with super glue and then sprinkled with baking soda. Seems to be holding very well. I don't think it's ever going to come loose.

More metal minis from Heresy Miniatures. I love these! Lots of character. Could work as station security or customs or similar types.

Some of them have names in my mind - Cliff on the left holding a cup of coffee, Pam next to him, then The Major (former military or just a wannabe?), Bert and Ernie (or is it Ernie and Bert?), Brewster on the far right)

Some of the same from different angles and a couple of others, plus a heroine/villain or other character type.

Pam and Cliff again, then Moriarty, The Major again, and unnamed woman (Woman with No Name?.

I will probably work up some way of using these in Core Space (sci-fi skirmish game from Battle Systems) eventually.
