Time to move on to the UCM.
Category Archives: Miniatures/Modeling
Right now everything is the same color. I hope that when I get the bases finished there will be a better contrast, but you know what, I’m just banging then out on minimal effort so I can get a couple of different armies going to maybe learn the rules.
Oh, and keep in mind these little dudes are 10mm tall or so (or N scale if you’re into model trains) so the slop is both to be expected and not as bad in real life, as the excuse always goes.
The Scourge, for whatever reason, needed quite a bit more care getting flashing and mold lines off, but there you have it, an assembled starter set of UCM and Scourge, with two PHR command walkers thrown in for good measure. Now, everything needs to get primed, and the paint madness can begin! I wonder if I can get it all painted by the time my pre-ordered PHR starter army is supposed to get here…
Back from the ashes of moving, my painting table is alive again, albeit in a slightly smaller form. Been feeling the need to do some miniatures lately, and looking at Dropzone Commander pretty seriously…
I think Thor Steinhammer (yes, POWERNAME!) is done. At least, I can’t think of anything else to do to him.
Well, I can’t say it’s much of a surprise, being as how I AM a geek. Been kind of interested in miniature wargaming for some time, and then Larry Correia started posting pictures of his figures, and one thing led to another, and I got together with one of my buddies and went halfsies on a 2-player starter set for Warmachine. That was probably in… August, maybe? Since then I’ve spent the equivalent of a high-quality AR build on paint and tiny toy steam-powered robots (or as Butch would say, Nerd-bots). Not a particularly cheap hobby.
The red guys are the “Khador” faction, sort of the Russian Imperialist/Commie aesthetic equivalent in the game story, and the khaki/OD green guys are the dwarven subfaction of mercenaries, that I really like the look of. Keeping in mind that the biggest one of them that I have is about 3 inches tall, I don’t think I’ve done a half-bad job at it:
So there you go, yet another way for me to waste my time and money (not like it’s doing any good sitting in a bank). Less practical than other hobbies, perhaps, but it scratches the artistic itch. Maybe I’ll post more pictures as things progress.
