Dwarves and Friends

 Some miniatures from Northumbrian Tin Soldier.

First, a fancy dwarf, a Will Scarlet look-alike and his halfling assistant.

Then, four lady dwarves (more or less bearded)

Aliens: Invaders From Space

 These are some aliens from the board game, Starcadia Quest: Zenith Invaders.

Floating robot, whence it came I have forgotten.

It's a (Venusian Fly)Trap!

 Just finished off these plant-based minis from the game, Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King. I don't know if I will ever play the board game, but thought these could be useful for various sci-fi and fantasy skirmish games to have some different enemies. Could even use the big Little Shop of Horrors-esque plant as a stationary hazard for both sides in a game with other enemies.

Space is in the Eye of the Beholder?


All Eyes are Upon You

Finally finished some aliens from a boardgame called Starcadia Quest. I don't know if I will ever play the actual game, but these minis seemed like a good fit for a more "whimlight" SF type of miniatures skirmish game, so I hope to play with some other rules (Five Parsecs or something else?).

The 2 big guys:

The 4 medium-sized ones (which I had to hack by taking a hacksaw to them to remove the arms so I could paint the whole mini):

The 4 little guys:

And a size comparison with Reaper mouslings:

On Fire

 or Up in Flames?

Finished some more Super Dungeon Explore minis. Most of the fire-based ones (from an expansion/supplement?).

A couple of shots of the whole group, where you can see the fire beetle and the fire dogs (or wolves or whatever they are).

And closeups of the big flames, pillar, and little flames.

The flames remind me of Muppets. I did their eyeliner and pupils with a pen, just following the sculpted lines.

Turtles All the Way Down

 I painted the set of turtles from an old copy of Super Dungeon Explore. Possibly for use as monsters/foes in assorted fantasy and sci-fi games.

Here is the whole group

The big guns and big boss

Shots of the medium-sized ones and the smaller ones pulled into their shells

RBJ Squealers

 More minis from the RBJ Kickstarter. Just as the yippers were loosely, humorously, based on dog-faced kobolds, these are loosely based on the old idea of pig-faced goblins/orcs. These are also little guys around the size of most 28mm halflings or Reaper mouslings.

The whole group

The various fighters, magic-user and familiar (amphibian on a toadstool)

RBJ Yippers

 Some more minis from a small Kickstarter project, Yippers from RBJ Game Company.

The whole gang (pack?)

Size comparison with a Crumptown Cat and a Reaper mousling

RPE Ratmen

 Finally got some more stuff painted. These are ratmen from an RPE (aka Ral Partha Europe) Kickstarter. They are right about 1 inch/ 25mm tall, and a bit on the scrawny side, suitable for rats. Should make for some good low level opponents for the "good guys" in skirmish games.
