Painted 15mm Gladiators comparison

This is a new project that I have been working on. Pictured are miniatures from the three companies I have managed to find that make 15mm Gladiators. If you know of any more I would be keen to hear of them.

Pictured from left to right in both images: Museum miniatures, Miniature wargames, Outpost wargames, Museum miniatures, Miniature wargames, Outpost wargames.

The size and build of the figures differ quite a bit between manfacurer but I don't think they look out of place next to each other.

Comments welcome.



Blood bowl sideline figures

This was a really cool batch of minitures to paint and offered a welcome break from some other projects I have been working on.

I have been trying to get hold of "Orc from Bilbao's" referee figure for quite some time and was lucky enough to see one for sale on ebay recently. I really love this figure and not just because I am a massive batman fan but because it captures all the fun and character of the game.

He is pictured alongside Heresy's Deathball coach and GZG's "Gentlemens collectables" nurse figure. I will be using her as my teams apothacry.

Thanks for looking


Khurasan's painted APC

When I first saw this model on dropships blog I knew I had to have one. It was exactly what I was after and really captures the feel of the movies and looks great alongside my figures.

To do the miniature justice I bought some of forge worlds weathering powders. This being the first time I have used powders on a miniature I would appreciate any views or tips on how you feel the effects have turned out. FYI I used the rust and dark mud powders.

I was quite happy with the end results but it's always nice to get a 2nd opinion.

Thanks for looking


15mm painted "Alien" comparison

I've seen some very helpful blog posts giving comparisons on the scale of the various 15mm Alien figures available out there, but thought it might be nice to do a compariosn on how they look together when painted and based in the same theme.

Hope this post is of use.

Figures from left to right: QRF's Large Alien bipeds (2 figs), GZG's xenomorph, Khurasan's Space demons, which are my personal favorite (2 figs) and finally QRF's small Alien bi-ped.

Thanks for looking


Pendraken Alien eggs

Hi guys, been a long while since my last post but let me asure you I have not been idle and have a number of project updates to share this time.

First off; Pendrakens 10mm Alien eggs pictured alongside some of QRF's Deep space marine casualty figures and small alien bipeds to give you an idea of scale. Although they are meant to be part of 10mm collections I still feel the scale fits with the rest of the 15mm figures in the picture and am pleased with the end results and quality of the Pendraken figures.

Thanks for looking.
