Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

My 28mm version of this Cobra instructor is a simple repaint of a rebased HeroClix miniature.

While his garments are not exactly the same, by using the correct colors for the paintjob I achieved a very good result.

The exterior of the buildings in my model Adriatic town will be applied using paint and sand. However, for the interior, I want to avoid such an easy solution.

On a certain evening when drinking tea I spotted this awesome pattern on the inside of a Lipton box for tea bags. After some more sips I collected the cardboard boxes and stashed them away in my scenery bitbox.

Now's the time to apply this wonderful wallpaper!

The houses in my Adriatic town are under construction. Recently I received an advertisement brochure for ceramic tiles and wooden floors in my mailbox. One of the pages had a large picture of a wooden floor, with a scale perfectly for 28mm buildings...

Scissors and glue delivered a great result! I also started working on wallpaper. More to show soon...

Snowjob

From gallery of toco


Snowjob is based on a HeroClix miniature with a GW backpack glued to his back. The paintjob was easy: white basecoat. Grey wash.

I made his ski's from sturdy plasticard. (A base from Star Wars Pocketmodels to be precise.) The fact that he's not wearing the ski's makes the miniature more useful for urban battles or snowless terrain gaming tables.

From gallery of toco


Yes, I know, the slottabases on my custom 28mm G.I. Joe's are not finished. I plan to paint them all black. That way I can use them on any surface. A prefer neutral colors on the bases.

This 28mm version of G.I. Joe Beachhead is made of Heroclix parts. I performed a headswap, and I removed 3mm from both his legs to shorten the miniature. Now he doesn't stand out between the rest of my 28mm miniature collection.

For Firefly I used a Deadpool HeroClix miniature. Repainting him in the toy figure's colors results in quite a good look-alike.

From gallery of tocoking


I added a Games-Workshop 40K Imperial Guard backpack to finish the job.

I'm sure this miniature will see a lot of Joemunda action on my gaming table.

If you click on "GI Joe" in my blog-tags you'll see my previous work on building a 28mm GI Joe & Cobra army to use in Necromunda (or any other modern skirmish game).

From gallery of tocoking


Recently I started painting my miniature conversions. In the coming weeks I'll upload some pictures of the tabletop-ready mini's.

My version of Lifeline is based on a 28mm miniatures from AT-43 Unit Box: Med Tec.

From gallery of tocoking


The key to success is using the exact same colors as either the toy figure or the cartoon character. Selecting the correct miniatures from any other game is part of the fun. Sometimes you don't even need any conversion work. Lifeline is an example of that.

Objective: Intel Gathering - Find the computer terminal (top left in picture) and retrieve the location of the Space Wolves' Battle Standard and the location of the control room of the planetary defense systems.

From gallery of tocoking


For this game I used my Space Hulk (Third Edition) board, tokens and game rules. The mission comes from an old White Dwarf magazine, designed for SH 1st Edition.

From gallery of tocoking


I really wanted to use my nearly finished metal Space Wolf Citadel miniatures.

Board Game: Space Hulk (Third Edition)


As usual, the adversaries of the Marines are alien and most deadly...

... lurking in the shadows, ready to shred the Terminators to tiny pieces.

Dark 'n eery...

From gallery of tocoking


In the end only 1 Terminator pushed through to the correct room-cluster. But after a good cleansing fire in the corridors, he too went KIA...

Yeah, this game is awesome! And, hell yeah, this game is DEADLY for the Terminators. (Bad PR for their weak armour against unarmed aliens...)*


* Actually, that's not correct, they're not unarmed. Genestealers have four arms ...

These green guys were on their way to eBay. The spare miniatures (with 1 replacement) have no real use for me, because I already have an Orc team.

From gallery of tocoking


But while I was gathering this gang of Orcs, my hobby-gen was flaring and I had the urge to start assembling them myself. And filling in gaps of the team with further replacements.
So, I went throught my Warhammer 40,000 bitsbox and found me three extra Orks. Ideal to pose as Black Orc Blockers.

From gallery of tocoking


Now I have one thrower, 4 blitzers (2nd edition), 6 line-orcs and 3 blockers. My love for glueing and cutting plastic satisfied

Team ready for the spraycans!
