What I have recently painted

Something a little different this time and hopefully a regular/irregular feature. Basically it’s what I’ve painted figure wise recently. I don’t get much time for my own stuff at the moment but I do try to squeeze it in here and there so below are a few shots of figures I’ve painted over the past month or two or three with a brief outline of the projects they are for but in no particular order.

An Eldar dreadnaught for an old school project which is mainly concentrating on orks and Imperial guard. The head now has a coat of gloss varnish on it but it's a sod to take decent photos of lol. No reason to have other little forces though :-)




Copplestone/EM4 figures for a small cartel project. I've gone for an eighties feel and hopefully the colours and t-shirt logos convey this. Everyone else in the project has gone for high tech moderns. I tend to get beaten a lot lol.





 Austrian officer from Victrix I think. Austrians were my first Napoleonic force years and years ago (15mm) so it sort of fits to do them again. I do need to buy quite a few more though lol.


Star Wars! It's actually a Pig Iron figure with a Crooked Dice head. I've got a fair few other Pig Iron figures to do and most, if not all need some head work doing. The troopers are the Wizards of the Coast bendy plastics.



These are my own range of Boxer Rebellion Japanese infantry but with Perry plastic pith helmet heads and they are for the Royal Interplanetary Society for my ever expanding Mars project.




These are the GW plastic knights that have had some bits swaps and I think the conversions work fine. The leader is based on the GW Green Knight model with an Elector Count rider who's had arms and a hat conversion.




And finally we have a single knight from Crusader Miniatures painted for a potential Robin Hood project. No idea about the heraldry, I made it up.

  2. Great work--that all looks brilliant. I built and primed an eldar army earlier this year and now can't decide how to paint it. I think the tiger stripes over a yellow helmet is the best look so I will probably be going for that... maybe! Nice work anyway. The Empire conversions also look nice. The green knight horse is always the 1990s Warhammer general's mount of choice I think unless going for a monster.

    1. Cheers mate 😊

      Yeah, had to go for the tiger stripes but wasn’t keen on blue for the main. There were a couple of example of the red in an old White Dwarf that looked good so I went for that.

      I think I’ve got another Green Knight horse somewhere but I’m not sure. Will have it for amounted wizard if I find it.

      cheers

    1. Thank Baron 😊

      It’s a shame the range has limited poses really as they are a joy to paint.

      cheers

  5. Those look great. Especially impressed by the t-shirts on those Copplestone chappies. Painting logos that small and cleanly is a real talent. I can't do it, sadly. My lettering always looks awful.

    1. Thank you kindly 😊

      I cheated with Flash, it’s in pen lol the rest I practiced on a piece of paper first to get the size and technique right. The only one I’m not happy with is the Ghostbusters one as the beard got in the way and threw the proportions out somewhat.

      cheers

  6. I love Eldar dreadnaught, well everyone is lovely. I will be stealing your Ghostbuster and Atari T-shirt ideas.
