Alien bounty hunters part II

Hello Everyone, 

Last month I've been going back and forth between my fantasy and sci-fi projects. 
My backlog of partially painted models is slinking at last, although there's still plenty of models left to do. Among them are quite a few more stand-alone mercenary type looking models. 
Not sure if I'm going to use them for games or not, we'll see. 

Khurasan has a lot of great models, very crisp and with clear details, this guy is no different. 
He is probably going to end up as a pilot of sorts, hence his high visibility clothing. Pretty happy with how he turned out. 



Really like the look of the model, he's a bit like a crossover between steampunk and post apocalypse.
One of the best models from Alternative Armies in my collection imho.



Another Critical Mass mercenary model, didn't like the original bright green scheme I did on him and decided to repaint him almost entirely. 



Not really satisfied with this guy, I'm not even sure the colour combination works to be honest. I should have gone with my gut feeling and give him dark grey armour. Maybe I'll buy him a second time and try to do him justice.



This Yoda is a Micro machines model. Like I said before he's a bit on the large side, but still only 12mm high. 



Every story needs some antagonists and evil robots are a bit of a trope. Figures are from the scene and Khurasan. 



A damsel in distress, or perhaps that's what she wants you to think before she robs you. Lucy will probably join my gang of zombie survivors once I get to them. 
She's been in my box for so long she's started to suffer a bit from leadrot (for some reason GZG figures seem more prone to this). Fingers crossed I managed to stop it and my paintjob will protect the model from deteriorating further. 


As promised, some reference to show the size of the models, measured from the top of the base. Most 15mm models have a slab to mount them on a base, which isn't taking into the measurement.





Thank you all so much for watching, 'til next time!
It will take me a bit longer to work towards my next post, hopefully next week or so.

  2. Excellent work on all, don't see a problem with any of the colours you've used, my favourite has to be the pilot

    1. Cheers mate, he's my favourite of the lot too.
      As for the colours, I don't think the brownish yellow really works well together with the icy blue.

  3. Good work there. I particularly like the shading on the pilot's helmet.

    1. Thanks a lot Toby, pretty happy how that worked out myself too. It helps there's a bit more surface area to paint the effect on.

  4. Orange, white and blue. Great colour composition! The glass-like shine is superb. My fave of the troupe.

    You are making up my mind about getting 15 minis and replace boardgame tokens and stuff...
    The pale green beard dude is also magnificent colour wise.

    You are achieving great results, like with these bad bots (bad bots, what you gonna do?🎵) Being so dark yet cohesive and menacing due the green glow (green glow is always a bad thing, ask warmachine people's 😁)

    1. Thank you Javi! I hadn't consider Cryx yet, but they indeed do have the same kind of evil green glowing things that Necrons have 😁.
      I think you could do amazing things on 15mm models. Always happy to hear I can help people find the way to 15mm 😉.

  7. It strikes me to check the scale of these. It's way beyond amazement. The paintjob is fantastic, and I have to say I like the yellow arour guy (it may also work with other colours, sure, but it's nice the way it is!)

    1. Thank you Suber 😊, you know how it is: I'm my own worst critic.

  8. WOW! Your 15s look like 28s! Well done!

  9. At this scale, the slight variations in hue on each individual paint job is simply amazing. All the minis here look fantastic ... if I had to choose one favourite I'll choose the pilot, yoda and the damsel in distress. Oops that's three :)
