My day started way too early today, as my kids were very to eager to start searching for eggs. With them now suffering from chocolate indigestion, I have the time to make another post about some older, partially models I finally managed to finish.
I'm sorry for posting in a more rapid succession compared to my usual rate, I painted up a few more models in the past month I didn't post about yet which I decided to share with you fine citizens.
The first models I want to show you are some Wasteland warriors I bought for 15mm Rogue Trader and Tomorrow's war. I think they were to be fielded as all kinds of undesirables such as, insurgents, raiders, bandits or slavers.
They kind of resemble the many punks you see in the artwork for Logan's world in the Rogue Trader rule book and this was no doubt what inspired me.
They're among the first 15mm miniatures I bought 6 to 7 years ago and I'm actually amazed I never finished them before. The models are probably among the best sculpts I got.
There's a few left in the set which are still on my paint table, so far I only did the ones that were either finished already or waiting for that final touch of paint.
Couldn't resist to change a few things though.
For instance, I kind of redid the skin tone; which was a strange leathery brown and a few other details.
A couple of droids, looking for their owner.
Just noticed I took the picture with the white robot's backside facing the camera. These were primed when I found them, nothing more.
A more rent acquisition from Alternative Armies. He's a bit of a rugged explorer/bounty hunter type character who will also act as the leader of my wasteland raiders in some scenarios.
Another robot, not sure what it's role is as it looks heavily modified.
Maybe it's accompanying this fine Imperial officer.
Another batch done, ready for the next group.
Time to entertain the kids and keep them from fighting (the Holiday is already starting to bore them)
Thank you for reading!
Lovely work! So much detail on the smaller scale too, really impressive.ReplyDelete
Thank you Michael, they're amazing models which makes painting a blast.Delete
Thanks a lot Michal!Delete
Those are awesome Wouter, top work mate!ReplyDelete
Cheers mate, very kind of you.Delete
Nice madmaxesque gang!ReplyDelete
Maybe its my old eyes, but looks like you manage to insanely detail the rugged explorer's skin... at this scale!
I'm used to color blending like pinkier elbows and tattoos but even in 28mm is hard to see people caring about skin texture (as sling being sun damaged by lack of moisture).
Superb. The fact the rebel droid is showing us his back is a fun happy accident :)
Happy to hear it's noticeable. I wanted his skin to look old, worn and beaten by the sun. It's nothing really special, just some stippling.Delete
Thanks a lot for the kind comment!
Very nice! Khurasan has some great miniatures and your paint looks good on them.ReplyDelete
That they do, some of the best on the market in my opinion.Delete
Thanks a lot!
Wouter!!! I'll post mine next monday, seems we worked on the same stuff at the same time. I can allready say you won the contest by far, they look AWESOME!ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot, appreciate it!Delete
:) Nice coincidence, looking forward to see yours. I don't think that's entirely true though, I'm a big fan of your work and yours often are far more tidy than mine.
Top work - the hazard stripes and skin tones are especially good. They look very detailed even though they're so small.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much Toby. I think it's exactly because they're so small that it works. Just a few hard highlights and a glaze after all.Delete
Yet another group of brilliantly painted miniatures. You should also take some pictures of them next to some everyday items like a paperclip to show just how small they are. For us fellow painters we get it. But for the neutrals, their mind will be blown :)ReplyDelete
Oh, that's a great idea. And you're totally correct of course.Delete
Thanks a lot for the advice and kind words!
That's quite a nice bunch! You get to achieve a splendid level of detail at this scale -I struggle to get anywhere close to that at 28mm!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Suber, that's high praise.Delete
