15 mm Sci-fi table.

So after painting a few minis I needed some terrain to play and I did this:


I took a wood DBA board (60x60 cm) a friend gave me, and glued onto it free donwnloadable printed paper sci-fi tiles and then covered everything with adhesive plastic film used for school books (I don't know its name, not even in my mother tongue, LOL).



Then I went to a wood shop and the carpenter there cut me those walls for 6 €. I have half of them painted as concrete, and I am going to paint the other half as steel walls.



Notice that I ordered to make the walls of the same wide as the squares in the tiles, so that the squares can be used for movement and measuring for games like Ion Age's Patrol Anguis.
I will use old Space Hulk doors for those corridors...

Fast, cheap and portable. Later on maybe I will make better terrain, but for now it will work as it is, and I can concentrate on painting more miniatures!

Khurasan arrived!

My order to Khurasan miniatures has just arrived on time as I already run out of 15mm miniatures to paint. I started with these four characters because they can be used together with my GZG painted miniatures either as special agents to fight along or as evil characters to fight against. 
Seeing now the picture I recalled the film Matrix; I should have painted one Afro-American.


These miniatures show great and sharp detail and are full character. They are top quality and nice price.
 

I also finished these GZG my friend gave me. These ones will fight as some sort of future SWAT forces.



Now I have many more miniatures to paint but also enough of them already painted to start a skirmish, so now I am going to make some quick terrain.

More 15 mm painting

While waiting for my order from Khurasan to arrive, I started painting these guys that my buddy Pako gave me. I must say I did not like them much when first I saw them unpainted, but I have changed my mind after that.




One thing I love about painting these critters is that it takes me the same time to paint this batch than one single 28 mm miniature.

Return to 15 mm?

Years ago, and after much thinking, I decided to get rid off all my 15 mm stuff and stick with 28 mm. But now I had to pack all my stuff and put it in a safer place, so I do not have neither miniatures nor terrain to play with.

While packing things up I found a surviving blister of 15 mm. sci-fi monkeys from Highlander Studio, and then I started to think about painting them and get some more for small, easy to store and portable skirmishes. 

Well, the result is below, and right now I am looking at Khurasan, Rebel and GZG shop.

Another Frazetta's

I have painted another Bronze Age miniature inspired on one of Frazetta's illustrations; a sea raider.
Not historically accurate, but a gorgeous model deserving to lead a raiding warband on any gaming table!
Dunno why, I envisioned him clad in blue and silver instead of gold and red.



 

The shield comes sculpted and only needs paint.


Once again, the pose is dynamic yet his face and general aspect is classic. I love it.

Fire & Ice

Remember Tygra from Frazetta? Well, here you have one of his main characters. As soon as I saw it I knew I need it to live, and last weekend I finally painted it. 
Not sure why, but I decided to drybrush the whole miniature like when I started painting years ago; maybe because the "oldschool" vibe in it.

Nevertheless, the figure is so dynamic and classic at the same time, that it shines even with a standard painting, and now I'm the happy owner of a well-known berserk or barbarian who will fight many fantastic as well as historical battles.
