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.

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).



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.



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.

I could not resist buying a pre-order boxed set from Games-Workshop. The new miniatures are just TOO cool to pass by.



"House Van Saar; the technological powerhouse of Necromunda, creators of the finest weapons and armour of all Houses."

I always wanted to own the "Van Saar" gang ever since the original release of their metal 1st edition. Never found any for a reasonable price at eBay...



So that's why I started building the new plastic gangers! And OW-MY these miniatures DO look good. But they have sooo many different pieces. It's a real plastic puzzle.



But since I love the smell of plastic glue in the morning, the high amount of pieces per miniature does not scare me.



These guys look bad-ass. Can't wait to field them. Currently in doubt about the coloring scheme: will I go yellow or lightblue ...

Following miniatures were a "new release" sometime... It feels like yesterday. Yeez, I'm getting old.

(Juvenile Delinquents)

Time to get some paint on them!

(Leader and Bodyguards)

It is my intention to paint them a little bit better than my previous batch.

(Close Combat)

The official rules for the shield are in a vintage GW publication.


(Long Range Support)

(No Gang without a Heavy)

Now with the bases drybrushed and the skin shaded (with ink), I am ready for the final highlights.



I applied the flesh-ink and then immediatelly wiped it away with my fingers. This way it shades the deeper details and the upper parts remain light pink.



The belts needs some fixing up. And I'll clean up the hair with nice red fine lines.





It feels like I'm putting more time in blogging about this speedpaint-job than in the painting itself

A quick and dirty paint job:
1) spraypaint black
2) drybrush pink
3) drybrush bronze metallic
4) paint red details
5) highlight orange
6) wash turquoise





These are the bottles I'm using. Some are ancient, and still liquid!



These Goliaths are clothed differently by wearing body armour. But I kept a consistent paint pallette for the entire gang.

Red and bronze metallic batch paint jobs.



Paint splatter. I soaked a large brush in watery red paint and then flicked it on the miniature. Result: bloody paint job and red finger

    Only two weeks left in 2017. And I challenged myself to paint my entire vintage Goliath gang. (It's about time, no?)

    So, here they are. Have a good look, because after I'm finished speedpainting these, a lot of the details will be gone. Covered in too thick layers of paint.



    The Close Combat guys.

    The Short Range gangers.

    The Heavy Dudes.

    The Long Range guys.


    Next: some rubble on the bases and start spraypainting...

    This is great news! For ages I've had the idea to convert one of the plastic 3rd edition Warhammer Beastmen into a 40K warrior. Now I have a reason to do this. Where's my bitsbox?!



    Offcourse I could just buy the new model from Forge World, but where's the fun in that? There are several component options to create my version of Gor Half-Horn. But first, he needs some feet, errr... hooves. The poor Battle-Masters' Beastman will donate his.



    Voila! He's mobile now. When I add all pieces togehter:





    I even added a skull on the base to resemble the original model.
