Malifaux marionettes.....finished

I added some more detail to these models since I last posted on here.

These are now finished and can be added to the cabinet.

Red cheeks and white faces finished.
I originally painted these two models with bronze buttons but they came up too dark so I changed them to gold.

I tried to make these as spooky as possible.
The weird puppet from the Saw movies was my inspiration

Christmas holidays mean......food, drink, family and a "spare" few hours to paint some models.

Here are some pictures of some models I have painted in the last week, I didn't paint these for any particular reason except because I liked them.

I'm sure I will find a use for them all, there are always plenty of dungeons to run for my buddies.

Enjoy.

Goblin, basic colours added.

Re-based and ready to dip.



Finished, painted, dipped, re-based and matte varnished.
I have no idea what I'll use him for but he's a cool model so that's a good enough reason.

Nice one Santa.
The resin bases were painted in preparation for some models shown below.

Black Hawk.
Lovely model and base, awful picture.....I need to practice my photography skills.

I bought these models about 2 years ago and they have been sat on my "to do" pile.

What's that coming over the hill...is it a monster, is it a monster?

And the answer to that musical question is yet.

It is a monster and his mates.

I finally finished off these models this week, once again these were bought from Wizards of the Toast, pre-painted but I've added some new detail and repainted bits on each model.



I've never seen three more evil looking swines in my life.

Efreeti.
Re-painted most of this bad boy with the exception of his skin tones.
Sweet model..!!

Ogre.....apparently..
But I think he's way to big for an Ogre, I'll be using this swine for a giant model.
Again I re-painted a lot of the model and added lots of new detail like the cuts and scars to his torso

Ettin.
Re-based and re-painted lots of this bad boy.

Dungeons & Dragons Airship

Why walk when you can fly?


So a couple of weeks ago when me and my D&D chums had decided on a date to play again I came up with an idea to spice up the upcoming session.

I am still running the Rise of Tiamat dungeon and one of the chapters asked for an ambush type attack for the unsuspecting PC's, so I decided to run this out in the wilds of Faerun and for the party to arrive in style. My original idea was for the party to arrive together in a huge steam powered airship, but I couldn't find the right stuff to build it with and due to a split in the party I had to re-write the encounter so that the PC's arrive in who smaller groups.

Any way, after much searching on Google I finally got a plan together and started to build the airship for the game

Below are the pictures, enjoy.


Bases were made from a resin cast model, these were WWII landing craft.


I decided to add some blue LED's to the base to give the ship a magical glow.

Main cabin was a cardboard house that I bought from Table Top games



I hid the batteries and wires as best I could inside the cardboard house and then weighed the "door" down with pennies

Lights on.

Mast added and base.
I made the base from a piece of thin MDF and propped up the model with some clear acrylic rods


Main sail added.
Downloaded from Drive Thru RPG.
Dave Graffam models


Port and aft sails added

Crew.....sort of







Straight outta Barovia

Vistani.....and all the trimmings.! Below are pictures of some models that I painted this week, these have been on my "to do"...
