Last post from 2016!

I have been a bit quiet in the last months due to job issues mainly, but I could not pass the chance to publish one more entry before the year ends, and wish to all the wargamers and bloggers of this hobby a Happy New Year! May the lead mountain goes down a bit next year!

These minis are from the old range Laserburn, they are rebels of the Red Redemption, and I decided to paint them as some sort of 30K Star Wars. What you can see it is an ancient incarnation of Darth Vader and Darth Maul!

In my view, they could be two Jedi students who did not pass the tests in the Jedi Academy and now compensate their lack of full Jedi skills with armour and pistols. But they have light swords and some Jedi skills, and now work as very dangerous hired mercenaries.

 Guess who's Darth Vader? ;-)

A darker view. I'm afraid that both painting in black and OSL in 15 mm was too much for my skills, but they'll do the trick.

And these are some Laserburn minis as well that I'll be using for a scenario I have in mind... 

Happy New Year!!!


Storm troopers!

I have finished painting these 15mm storm troopers from Highlander Studios that I had lying around.

A comparison next to one GZG trooper painted as a Rebel...



Well, it's not exactly a Thulg but a Garn from Khurasan. When I was ordering to Khurasan I saw it and I instantly thought of a Thulg. If you are old enough you will know that Thulgz were some sort of fearsome reptilian bounty hunters from the Laserburn rules universe.

I mixed green with metallic medium and got a nice shiny scaly skin for the lizard, but the varnish kill it mostly.

As you can see, it is a big bastard. Almost like a 25 mm miniature.
I will probably end ordering an authentic Thulg to Alternative Armies. Actually, as I am writing this, I am picking my old Laserburn ruleset and starting to read it. I'm seriously thinking about having a Laserburn game after twenty years!


More Khurasan goodies!

Here it is the blister of a space crew plus a pulpy robot (the red one). I could not resist to buy. It can be a boxing robot or it can work as a bouncer.

The  miniatures are very well sculpted, mold lines free, with a great variety of poses and nice price too! They are a must for any 15 mm sci-fi gamer.
