GZG - 18mm FSE

Hello again all,
Just finished my GZG - 18mm FSE .
Another great faction by Ground Zero Games.
Still waiting for his new stuff as I'm running out of 18mm metal minis to paint.

I have said it before & I will say it again, nothing beats the weight of metal figs ( perhaps because I'm old school ).
Unless one is doing conversions ( off course ) then plastic figures & vehicles are the best.
3d printing is great for versatility /huge choice , especially if one can use a 3d prog.

I added a Khurasan vehicle ( which I had for ages ) + another 2 scratchbuilt / 3d printed ones.

Also added 3d printed mechs & power armour which I found free on thingyverse ( If I remember correctly ) and Rebel minis tracked drones plus scratchbuilt sprue mortars/light artillery.

The mechs are Mf-19 Fenrir Battle Suit -
The PA are 6mm battle armour -

Thanks for your comments.

Weird World War 2 --15/18mm German Mechs

Hello again all,
Here are my first 2 AEWW2 German medium mechs. 
I think they can easily be used in another steampunk/dieselpunk setting.

These are 3D printed & bought from Filamentio. 
Lovely posable ( ball & socket) models with very nice detail. 

They are designed for 28/32mm so building & re supporting in 15/18mm takes time ( tedious sometimes) but worthwhile. Note that I kitbashed the MG42 pintle mount & inserted a steel needle in it to make it stronger.
I love the bars ( bull bars?) on these models & this was the main reason I added loads of stowage.

If you're into this genre + sci-fi , he has more great mechs & vehicles. I will be printing & showing more... Plus also scifi ones not just AEWW2.
These will be used with my previous models ( still a lot to do ) Black-earth-6mm-uef-hulk-suits.html

Please identify these 28mm scifi minis.

Can anyone, please identify these minis &who is producing them now ?

As far as I know they were made by Hasslefree & then sold to another UK based company, though I have no idea who .


15/18mm Scale Pipelines

Hello again all,
Here is my latest bit of terrain.
Generic Pipelines.

Various bits & bobs used including spice containers, a/c drain pipes, 3D printed resized pipes & fittings , balloon 6mm diameter tubes & card. The computer terminals are from Antenocities. 5mm ( hole size) chicken wire was used for the railings.

White PVA was mostly used with CA for the magnets.

The bases are made of double Pinsa box card ( just fyi Pinsa is a rectangular type of pizza native of Rome ). So if you can get hold of this type of box card it is some of the best around. Much sturdier than normal pizza card.... and it is obviously recyclable. I stuck mosquito netting to it to add texture.

Almost all the bits have 4mm magnets. Almost all because I made a mistake with the orientation of some of them 😒  ( now I've made a jig with 2 magnets & sprue to avoid just this ... about time !!! )
Anyway, to counter act this I used the heads of old 4 to 5'' nails ( cut down to size ) & 1 euro cents stuck to some of the pipes or terrain.

I plan to use these with my power station 

and my guard tower & fence

Thanks for your comments.

3D printed 18mm Starcraft Marines

I found these on thingyverse, I think.
Very nice , chonky &  free models.

I modded some of them to have a squad of 10. Not all of them printed perfectly ( the revolvers, which is a pity ) but they are passable . 

Thanks for your comments.

KMFP Chonky 18mm Scouts & Papsikels Droids

These are KMFP Chonky 18mm Scouts & Papsikels Droids.

I gave the scouts different heads, some bits form Anvil Industry Digital. Anvil industry are great for kitbashing as they do integrate a lot of multi shells in their minis.
I am starting to like chonky minis as they are not fragile as true 15/18.
The camo painted ones are special forces.
The papsikels droids are great minis but as usual I had to shore up delicate parts like ankles etc to make them print better / sturdier.. 
I added mag locked magazines to their backs & built the hmg.

Here are the smaller versions, came out quite nice also. I modded most of them to have different poses in 3D Builder.

Thank for your comments.
