Here is another single mini post. Not that I haven’t been painting any new stuff, but I have not had the time to get my act together and take pictures of the stuff I have been working on recently. It is mostly fantasy minis, as I am prepping for a WFB scenario we are playing at the end of this month.
But down to business. Here we have an odd mutie. I am not sure who sculpted or produced it, but I guess that he is intended as some sort of fantasy football player in the Blood Bowl-vein. Let me know if you can identify him for me.
However, in my world he is now serving as a sad mutant bandit. I gave him a quick conversion and armed him with the chainsword, thus making him quite fierce in close combat as he fights with the armour and sword as well as the quirky flipper-like tentacle.
The sculpting is by no means a masterpiece, but I quite like him and I think he will serve nicely in the Rogue Trader campaign we are embarking on very soon, but more about that in a future post.
Thanks for stepping by
Here’s a quick little update with some slightly bad photos. Sorry. The first one on the right is of course a Necromunda ganger from the house of Cawdor. I often find the classic Necromunda minis slightly too cartoony for my tastes, but this model I rather like. There is something delightful in the mixture of grim bestiality and looney over the top violence in the model, which is quite catchy. He was also fun to paint. I attempted to keep the paintjob simple and to give him a sort of urban camo-feel, which I think works well with the model.
The heavy ganger’s partner in crime is one of the hybrids – this one a squat hybrid, I believe, sculpted by Bob Olley for Uscarl Miniatures. It’s a great little mini which almost, but not completely, catches the vibes of the original hybrids produced back in the day. I also here kept the painting simply and the colours fairly muted to give retain some of the down to earth feel of his squat background.
I also, obviously, took inspiration from the great work mr. Asslessman did on this little range.
There is more in the pipeline. Stay tuned if you are interested.
