More Dwarf Musketeers

More dwarf musketeers (with muskets this time) from Iron Mask Miniatures. I still have a good number of figures from them to paint.

And just for fun, these are all of the Iron Mask minis I have painted so far. Doesn't look like so many when I look at this, but they will grow in number over time.

More Space Dwarves

These ones are from the Theoc Space Dwarves kickstarter. There are some additional figures with separate arms and weapons, but I need to figure out how the arms should be attached. There is no clear peg and socket or anything. I suspect it will require some carving off of bits, pinning, and putty work. The ones here are all single-part all-in-one casting figures, which I usually prefer.

Command (maybe sergeant and lieutenant? or veteran/experienced?)
 One type of gun
A different type of gun

I tried something different with the guns, adding the non-metallic light blue; maybe these are some sort of laser or energy weapons?

And just for fun, a Komodo dragon from Reaper. Not sure why I got this or what I would use it for. I painted it based on a Komodo dragon I saw in a zoo recently.

Elves, Dwarves and Bears

These 2 wood elves are from Reaper. Maybe not clear from the angle, but the male elf is getting ready to fire a bow. The female has a lute strapped to her back.

More dwarves from Iron Mask Miniatures. Pikemen, and the first of the dwarves with muskets (the muskets have longer barrels, but they seemed too long to load so I cut them short).

A family of grizzly bears from Foundry.

Some chests from Super Dungeon Explore. I thought these could be useful in a variety of games, as background terrain "scatter" or as objectives.

Three Space Dwarves

Plastic/resin figures from Kromlech. The heads come separately, but are easy to attach with a sort of loose ball and socket connection. They also came with some little fiddly goggle things to go on their helmets, but I left those off for fear they would be too fragile. I plan to use one of the figures as stand-in for a crewman in some games (Five Parsecs from Home and/or Pulp Alley?), who is a space dwarf and former soldier.

When painting figures like this where a large portion of the figure is one color I often struggle with figuring out how much of it and which parts to paint other colors so they aren't too monotone. But at the same time I don't want it to get too fiddly or chaotic. Some of these have some sort of small cylinders in belts, like a belt for bullets, for example. I left the cylinders the same green as the uniform, so far. But not sure if I should. As these are meant for gaming rather than display I will probably leave them as is and call it done.

Mousling Picnic/Party

More mouslings from Reaper. All except for the king and princess are from the Mousling Tavern set.

Musicians, server/bartender and celebrants

Goblins in Space

I had previously painted the first 6 of these GW space goblins; then bought a few more on ebay (unpainted) to create a small force for games like Pulp Alley and sci-fi skirmish-level games.

The leader and some fighters
 Banner bearer (need to add some sort of banner or emblem) and a couple more fighters
Group of shooters - these would make up a mob in Pulp Alley - I modified a couple of these (added spiked helmet and bandanna using greenstuff and a plastic spike).
 More fighters - I changed the middle guy's knife/sword for a sword from an old plastic orcs boxed set.
 More shooters
These last 10 are the ones I just finished painting over the last few days.
