I did actually finish these off last weekend during the snowy weekend but I have only just had chance to take a photo of them.
I shortened the smoke plume so the models would fit onto a 25mm base and not have to use a large 40mm base.
The flame effect is a bit stripey, it does not blend very well, I may have to revisit them.
When it is like this, there is nowt to do but paint…
These are the last of my British infantry, at least I hope they are the last and there are no more lurking in the Loft Full Of Lead.
Finished my Meridian Miniatures Gunbots, decided on green, simple really.
There is another Steam Wars game coming up so I will have to profile these little chaps up for the British army. I suspect they will be having a small confrontation with the Martians…allegedly.
The Roboplanes for the Steam Wars Mechanica army have been hanging around half painted for quite a few weeks.
It could do with some weathering, but that is a painting skill I have not quite mastered, especially on flat surfaces.
Fortunately, the cockpit detail is still reasonably visible, although the control stick is not painted or maybe even finished, it is still just a pin.
The nose cannon is impressive, I suspect the recoil of firing this beast in flight would cause the plane to stall.
I finally have the new Mantic Tunneler from their Kickstarter which ended exactly two years ago.
It is quite a nice looking kit and appears to snap together but there are no instructions. There seem to be some optional parts in the kit, I really can’t remember what I was expecting anyway or what the options are meant to be. I will have to Google some instructions or maybe just some other models finished by other people.This image seems like a good place to start.
At the Colours show a few weeks ago, Simple Miniatures were doing a ridiculous deal for a few Privateer Press models, so I could not resist and bought this large siege crawler for £17.50.
When it was released a while back, I really liked the model and thought it would be really cool to use it in Steam Wars, most likely in my Mechanica army.
