Late War Germans, Rubble Junk, Cthulhu Adventurers, Mr. Green, and a Pinch of Citadel Fantasy

    Hello Distinguished Internet Viewer,

I've sloppily slapped together a bunch of a miniature goodness and took pictures.  As always everything  I paint looks shiney thanks to my stupid camera.

First up more boring late war Germans with machine guns.  Thank God there's only 24 rifleman and 4 heavy weapons teams left after these.

Germans carrying various ammo cans/drums.  I like to pretend they're lunch boxes.

Germans with rifles.

I've played Strange Aeons with friends and therefore decided to paint some old Grenadier brand Cthulhu adventurers.  THEY ARE NOT SHINEY IN REAL LIFE.    The second from the right, is maybe a Ral Partha Shadowrun model, the short trench coat with leggings and straps around the forearms are ridiculous.  Last is a Grenadier Innsmouth resident I believe, big mouth and a lack of decent nose.
the guy on the left brought a camera to a demon fight.  I actually use the same model camera for this blog.

Here's my first attempt at making brick road bases out of Milliput.  If you get drunk and squint they look really really good.

Here's a couple old Citadel models.  I forgot to look for a date stamp on the dwarf and I think the human is from their old D&D line.

Lastly some Sculpey clay rubbish:  a battered refrigerator, some garbage bags, a couple stuffed animals, and a couch.  The couch is looks small next to the bald man with dumb looking pistol and brief case, because he's a Mr. Green from my kids' Clue board game and he's about 32 mm high.  I repainted him so they won't catch on to my thievery.
"Mr. Green in the rubbish pile with bolt pistol."

Till next time, when I hope to have more dull gray Germans and rubbish.

Early & Late War Germans, a Mummy, and some Manlets

Hello Fine Viewer,

More exciting WW1 miniatures for your viewing pleasure.

First are some Brigade Games early WW1 Germans.   They are from the BG-WIWG20 and 21 packs, Germans in greatcoats/Picklehaubs Advancing I and II.    Each pack is only $16 and you get eight easy to paint models.

They look very 40Kish admist all the rubble.

Next are some late war Brigade Games Germans.  One up front has a Bergmann SMG and the one in the back is lugging around a heavy MG08/15.

Here's a Mummy, from Reaper miniatures.  He's labeled Sethris of Adiri and sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.  

He's running from a little beetle.

A few months ago I tried sculpting furniture out of balsa wood, but recently tried Sculpey Clay.  I like the Sculpey much better, except for having to bake it for 20 minutes to make it hard.  Here's a few pieces; I would have shown you more but the rest are primed white and the photo didn't come out.  They're good enough for inclusion in rubble piles.

Some manlets for archers to hide behind.  The paint job is pretty bad, but good enough for pieces that won't be used very often or at all.  I horde siege equipment to the point that I don't think anyone has a model castle big enough to handle it all.

Next time, more Germans (only about 40 left to paint) and some old Grenadier Call of Cthulhu 6501 Adventurers.
