      Just wanted to share my completed Tiamat. I respect anyone who has taken the time to paint this. Feel free to let me know what you think and post pictures of your own painted miniatures.

      • #181878

        That is crazy good.   How long did that take to paint?

          Hey Kim . Thank you . it’s hard to gauge.  months since I started , but covid unemployment gave me lots of extra time to finish . if I were to take a guesstimate, maybe 80-100 hours across 6 months…. I’m incredibly slow at painting though and took frequent back and shoulder weed breaks … :-)

      As well as my numerous GW 40k figures and vehicles I have a number from other manufacturers as well. Such as this charming fellow:

      Great Cthulhu

      This is a plastic model that came as a kit. Annoyingly when it first arrived it had two of one wing and was missing the other. It then took about two months for a replacement to arrive from the US.

        I repainted mine two years ago. He had been a red before but I needed a gold that week.

      I also have dragons, including this one from Heresy Minatures. That’s a 12″ ruler at the the bottom for scale.

        Wow!  Beautiful detail.

          Thanks. I keep meaning to go back and see what I can do about the tree stump. It just looks too shiny to me. I’m thinking about a black wash to try and tone it down.

          • #183261

            Thing Ive tried for old wood was a light grey drybrush with a earthwash over that.

            This one I think was fleshtone not the grey… Cant find the figure I was thinking of.

      Top notch man. Would love to get into miniatures, but that requires space and resources, which are lacking at the moment. Seen a lot of YT vids on how to paint miniatures. Some of these guys come up with some amazing paint jobs.

      A while ago I noticed that there didn’t seem to be many Star Trek miniatures out there despite the number of RPGs there have been over the years so I set about converting these:

      More recently I also scratch built a shuttle to go with them:

      Could you tell me where one would get something like this?

      • #186402

        Are there any particular models above you are interested in? There are a lot of different companies that make these, ranging from individuals who might cast or print figures out of their own home up to some pretty big companies. eBay of course can offer a lot of them but beware of anything listed as out of production. I’ve seen figures listed this way that were still available brand new for less money on the manufacturer’s website.

        You might want to try looking up some of the following companies on line (there are of course many more):

        Games Workshop

        Victoria Miniatures

        Heresy Miniatures – this is where I got my large dragon model

        Reaper Miniatures

        EM4

        Hasslefree Miniatures

      I’m researching for a pair of videos about collecting 40k Imperial Guard and part of one of these will cover the issue of proxies, using figures not made by Games Workshop in 40k games. When looking to see what was available I think I found the most awesome proxy figures that would make even the most hardened Khorne berserker think twice. The Blood God would not look favourably on fighting these troops:

       

      The Toughest Troops in the Galaxy

      These figures are the Urzan Liberty Corps.

      As well as painting standard and converted miniatures I have also scratchbuilt a range of 25/28mm scale vehicles. In each case I set myself the challenge of making a basic core from just a single sheet of roughly A4 sized (297x210mm) 1mm thick plasticard.

      Main battle tank:

      ScratchbuiltMBT

      Infantry fighting vehicle:

      ScratchbuiltIFV

      I’ve also made a command vehicle, APC and recovery vehicle variant of the IFV.

      Wheeled explorer (also needed some tube for the wheels):

      Militarised

      I’ve created a number of military and civilian variants of this wheeled vehicle.

        That A1 Abams is sweet.

        • #187555

          Thanks. The MBT was based more off the Challenger 2 (hence the multiple bands around the main gun) but I designed it so that the basic core could be modified to produce whatever you wanted. I made a short video about the process as well:

          (note that this was made before my website moved and I think there’s a link to the old one at the end of this)

          There are also videos about the IFV and explorer variants.
