New recruits!

Received some new figs throught the post this week and managed to get them prep'd. All off ebay I managed to get the laserburn fishmen figures that were cast up by foundry recently. Lovely old sculpts with great detail and the integral type bases I much prefer to slotta tabs. Along with them I got this minifig Earth conscript sci-fi fellow. These old figures have a real charm about them.

Backpack prep...

Photo says it all really! I had been prepping marine backpacks indiviually as I needed them but decided to get a batch ready all in one go. The speed I paint this is probably a years worth of backpacks!

Sci-fi floors...4

I made a room tile with a hole in it to act as a spawn point in games. Could have all kind of creatures popping out of it or just be a hazard when travelling through the space. Have some cast up now so deciding whether to paint the edge in a metallic "aliens" style or more of a hardened putrid goo! Will have to see once the floor parts are painted.

Sci-fi floors... 3

Here are whole load of pics of the resin floors I've cast and painted so far. Gonna see some action pretty soon. Thinking of running a sci-fi game using the X-plorers rules with some additional rules for different races like elves, dwarfs and hobbits so I can use my RT figures. Will also be a change to the rules to allowing killer robots!

Three's company...

Got a couple of new arrivals in the post today. Some additional versions of the Brother A Skull mini I won on ebay recently . Makes my total of this particular figure up to three. Probably all I'll ever need but you can't be too sure of these thing!. The two new figs are now enjoying a dettol bath. Will probably paint these in different contrasting colours. I may paint one up in the colour scheme with which he originally appeared in the White Dwarf advert.

Sci-fi floors...

Here's a pic of some resin sci-fi floors I've been working on. Have a few new pieces to paint up over the next few days. Aiming to get more corridors and rooms painted for the weekend!
