Fantasy Zoat

This one took me back a way, I've no idea where the one I originally had about 20 years ago went to. Really enjoyed painting it up, wonder if I'll be saying that after the next 13 of them 8). Only place to ge tthem now is ebay and they go for a small fortune, saying that, you can spend on average £20 on on of these or one of those new citadel shitecast mini's. No brainer really

New White Knight Dwarves

These are great Marauder Proxies, ideal for bulking up that old OOP army with something that fits. They paint up quickly and easily with little in the way of extra detail that bogs the painting down. These are after all Rank and Filers. The bases need completing. I'll be getting a few more units and trying out different schemes. Very reasonable prioce, fast delivery and the range will be expanding, see the White Knight blog link on the left for more info.

Red Box Games Svjanna the Sinister

One I painted up a while back now. Fantastic mini, there is a lot of detail packed into this range and well worth splashing out for. I went for my normal deathly pallour as I think this works well as a Vampire/Dark Elf type.

Really easy to paint up too but I still need to add some foliage to the base.

I will be getting a few more from this range eventually.

Link to the webstore is on the left hand side

Olleys Armies SF Ogres

These are cracking mini's from Olleys Armies, I really like Bob Olleys style as it is reminiscent of the golden age of Rogue Trader etc... Quite quick to paint up using natural sand and pale brown colours. They certainly blow GW's Ogryns out of the water by miles. Spend £9.50 on an Olleys Armies Ogre or £13.80 on mis-shapen lump of metal from GW. It is an wasy choice to make.

Now if only I could get my grubby hands on the original Ogryns from the 80's....

4A Zombies

Zombies, from 4A Miniatures. These are great to paint up, nice big chunky mini's that you can slap paint on, add a few washes, a few highlights and you are done. The detail is minimal enough to paint up quickly but are a few steps up the quality ladder than the normal filler mini's for zombie hoardes. Well worth picking up.

Lilith Hesperax

This is from Games Workshop, I went in to pick up some paint and bought this on a whim. A very good sculpt, probably the best I've seen out of there recent ranges (well from early 1990's)

Painted up like the stock image from GW to sell later down the line when I have finished off the plastic squad I also got at the same time.

Hasslefree Pilot

Picked this up while purchasing the "Goatboy", thought i might as well buy more than the one mini to make postage more palatable.

Lovely sculpt, and quick and easy to paint up, based on a Fenris Sulaco base. The Dog type creature comes with the mini but the oil can is from a 1/35 tamiya set.

Oh the Horror

Picked these up off Ebay, sculpted by Kev Adams and now out of production, they seem to rarely crop up.

Used them as practice to blend different colours together
