Wip Terrain & other stuff.

Hello again all
Here are more wip pics I would like to share with you.

  1. Black bunker / hut made from an ant trap
  2. Scratch built ( you can see pics in other posts ) Haqqislam ( for my 15mm Arab Nation, I will get GZG's new Islamic Federation minis, especially the ones with Keffiyeh. - Islamic Federation
  3. Card Balsa wood Landers which i had planned / built years ago as Eldar Skimmers & will now use as 15mm landers for my star port.
  4. Milliput long legged sand hopper - omnivorous insect.
  5. !977 circa Ral Partha orc war machine slaves, converted them to star port porters. I've had these since the late 70's but never got round to using them.
  6. Power plant converted from a Kinder egg toy.
  7. Natural Rock formation for a hide & seek canyon like scenario ( have to make tons of them ). Will get there bit by bit.
  8. Scifi door ( made from a laser jet refill cartridge pull ring )  & a security wall made from packaging.
  9. GW Tau Piranha conversion for my future planned 15mm tau.Still can be used for 28mm if I so decide. Closed cockpit & Troop compartment or supply module.
  10. And finally plans for a triangular skimmer craft made from a blue cheese container lid.






























Enjoy & may you be inspired

Homo Serpens - Something slithering this way comes

Been meaning to paint the Critical Mass snake men I got from their KS for ages .
Superb minis & vehicles.
I wracked my brain to go for a truly alien paint scheme & here it is - Pinkish sand + grey for the vehicles & Pinkish sand + Purple for the infantry.
The scheme is sand then washes of oil carmine painted overall.
Mounting them on irregular thick card bases makes them look better.
I will be using the older ones as Light scouts & the newer armoured ones as Infantry.
