Goblins

These are some wild goblins from a Greenskin Wars kickstarter. Full of character. Each one has a different animal skin cloak. I went back to green, but trying a different shade that is more on the blue side, for a change of pace.

SciCorps and Huge Critters

First up, a squad of 6 figures from Reaper. These could be law enforcement, security forces or military, private or public, local or interplanetary.


Rock toad, from the Warts and Wings kickstarter, by Iain Colwell and Toad King Castings. Human shown for scale. This toad is noticeably larger than the fire and ice toads (from the same kickstarter) I painted previously.


Giant Alligator from the Hordes line by Privateer Press. I don't play the game; I just thought a giant 'gator would make for a good monster in various settings. Human added for scale; also shows the gear on his back.

More Sci-Fi and a Goblin

I wanted to try my hand at a non-green goblin. This figure is from a Greenskin Wars kickstarter I received a while back. I'm not sure the color works. Maybe I will try some other shades on some of the other figures until I get a color I like.

Sligg Soldier from Reaper, which reminded me of a kobold. Two views of the one figure, so you can see different angles.

And the Space Patrol from Hydra Miniatures Galacteers.

A Few Minis More

I found these pack donkeys amongst my pile of "lead" and decided to paint them. They are from Foundry. I painted others from the set, including various pack equines, a long time ago.

 Female sci-fi soldier from Reaper; owlbear cub and Illyrian spaceman from Bombshell Miniatures.

Fire and Ice and Mechanical Minions

I've been painting a mix of Hydra Miniatures, Bombshell Miniatures, and Reaper Miniatures, as well as some miniatures from assorted kickstarter projects, so I'm losing track of which came from where. Is that just me?

First, a couple of large toads (to give an idea of size, they are based on the same large 1.25 inch diameter washers I used for the other figures in this post). I painted one in a snow/ice scheme (with some baking soda and salt for the patches of snow), and the other in a fire scheme. These are resin minis from the Warts and Wings kickstarter by Iain Colwell.

Alien ambassador/merchant/noble and hunter. Not sure where these are from, but I think they might be from Reaper.

Evil Overlord/space villain and robot captain, from Hydra Miniatures.

Followed by the robot "legion", also from Hydra.

For more info on the toads see Toad King Castings

Space Heroines and Aliens

Time for some sci-fi/space opera stuff, with a mix of figures from Reaper and Bombshell Miniatures.

Ship's mechanic and a couple of robots

Space heroines and ginger cat

Space aliens, called Illyrians on some catalogs (I had painted up the middle guy some time ago, but did some minor painting and flocking now to fit in with the other four, which are new)

Big Bird

Here is a feathered Tyrannosaurus Rex from Reaper Miniatures. I based the color scheme on the coloring of a hawk. The miniature is a little under 5 centimeters tall from the foot on the ground to the top of the head.
