White base for Throwers.

Yellow for Catchers.

Grey for Linemen...

and some more Linemen.

Red for Wardancers.

And last but not least... Green for Treeman!

Blood Bowl is a Carnival... where anything goes! Good luck to the team :) Bye now...

Blood Bowl Daemonettes

Hello there! Just a quick posting this time, to show what's on the table...

I was asked to paint these slightly converted GW Daemonettes for Blood Bowl use. I was told that they were going to be used as proxy Wood Elves team... But could be used as unofficial "Daemons of Slaanesh Team" found on the FUMBBL league.

Here's two throwers (#1 and 2), one catcher (#3) and linewomen (#5,6 and 7). More to come soon!

Old Western Stagecoach

Hello there! Just finished another miniature for Legends of the Old West. Here's the Old Western Stagecoach from Dixon Miniatures...

Horses and stagecoach are from lead free pewter, so this whole thing weights  quite alot... :)

It was quite a challenge to paint heavy and soft pewter, for I have been into plastics for a long time now, but in the end, the metal miniatures painted up really nicely and I'm happy with the result...

"Stand and deliver..! I want you to hand over all the lupins you've got!"

Bye now!

Ay Caramba..! Bandidos!

Hello there! I got some "Old West" miniatures to paint the other day.
I have never painted western miniatures before, and I have to say, it's been alot of fun! It's really nice to make up color themes for the bandidos... These miniatures are form "Artizan Design". Sculpting and poses are good, and there's not too much of details to pick up... so they paint up pretty nicely and fast. I like 'em alot! These figures are going to be played in Warhammer: Legends of the Old West setting... Here's some pics of the individuals.

There's an "Old Western Stagecoach" from Dixon Miniatures coming up next... See you soon :)

Space Crusade: First Minis Painted

Hello! Something else than Blood Bowl for a change... :)

I got my first Space Crusade minatures in paints. I randomly picked up some minis out of the box, and started to plan a simple and quick to paint colors on them.
I also wanted to make the bases more board game friendly, so I'm working on it... It can't be too complicated stuff to do. Othervise it takes ages to finish all of the minis in the box!

Well... here's the first pics!

First ones to get the paint job were the Ork, Android and Gretchin...

Broblem with the Ork miniature is the sculpting... wich is little too childish and more toy-like, than a miniature. I don't usually complain about lack of details, but this figure really has almost none... You have to create some shapes with paint job.
Well, at least it is fast to paint. And that's a good thing when you want to finish a board game!

Orks back side...

Android was the fastest of the three minis... Just overbrushed Lead Belcher on black. Then I picked up some spots with Runefang Steel. Finally I had to make the chevrons to it... for some character. I think it made it less Terminator and more Iron Warrior :)

Android behind...

Gretchin was the most interesting of the three... Most of the sculpting is really nice (in board game standards), but some of the details needs detective work to figure out what it is... I spent an hour on the internet just to find out if they have long sleeves on their shirts or not. Didn't find the answer, but in my opinion they do :) Lots of different versions were found... Some of the minis seems to have a long sleeve just on the other arm. Well, if you know the answer let me know :)

And finally... Gretchins ass!
There you have it... More to come soon!

Bye now!

Blood Bowl: Galadrieth Gladiators Done!

Hello! Here's the last pics of the High Elf Team. Everything's done except the bases... which I was advised to leave as they are. But anyways, here's the pics!

The group shot!

Thrower and Dragon Warriors...

The Linemen...

And finally the Lion Warriors! That's all this time folks...

My Alien vs Predator painting job is delayed a bit, so I'm not quite sure what's my next project. I think it has something to do with Ninjas... and Turtles... :)

Bye now!

Purchases: Space Crusade

Hi there! Just a quick update this time... I had to post about this treasure that I bought in a very fair price. I've played this last time when it was a new game, in the early 90's :). So it's been awhile... If I only found enough painty time to get all the figures in paints, and play one campaign, that would be awesome!

Every bit is in the box... even the extra blank counters! This was a great deal. The game was actually published in Finnish language at the beginning of 90's here in Finland, and this is one of those boxes... I've heard before that the translation is really crappy job, and when I started to read the rule book, I found out it's actually hilarious :D. I have to read the rules in English pdf-file just to understand what the translator is trying to say... Well, I dont mind. I hope to post more about this box soon, maybe in form of painted Space Crusade miniatures... Bye now!

Blood Bowl: High Elves, Lion Warriors Painted

Hello there! Just a quick posting... I found some painting time for myself, and painted two more High Elf players. Here's the pics...

These were also lovely stuff to paint... The sculpting on these catchers is just great. Lots of feeling without too many details. That's how you do it! :)

And here's the back... Bases are not gonna be done on this team (not by me anyway). Coach of the team adviced me to leave them undone... So we are not gonna see them in full gaming glory here :(

Well... More to come soon, in the form of the High Elf Dragon Warriors (Blitzers). Bye now!
