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.

Time to paint my Cobra Crimson Guards won't you think?



The paint job should be easy. A lot of dark red with some black and silver details...



I made these custom GI Joe themed 28mm miniatures to use in Necromunda skirmish games. Click on my blog tags* on the right to see more GI Joe inspired stuff.

For those who were following my previous blog posts about 28mm GI Joe miniatures (conversions) to use in Necromunda: I'd like to redirect you to this guy http://mini-ventures.blogspot.be/



He's doing the same as I'm doing. But with other miniatures. I really think he's doing a great job (too).

This is just unfair. I've put so many time in coverting 28mm miniatures into GI Joe's and Cobra's, and now Hasbro brings us GI Joe Micro Force. Official 28mm miniatures! Ideal to use in Necromunda campaigns.



Miniatures' size.

They're for sale in the US. Lets hope they sell these miniature men in Europe soon.

The Dragonfly helicopter was one of the most famous flyers from the G.I. Joe cartoon series. Mostly piloted by Wild Bill, the cowboy-pilot.



I want one for Necromunda! So I found me a Cobra Chopper model kit in 1:48 scale and started some small conversions.



The pilot and gunner will become Wild Bill and Zap. By using the matching paint Zap will look exactly like the original toy soldier.

For Wild Bill I cut off the top of his helmet and glued some round cardboard in place. Then I folded the sides up a little. On top of this cardboard I glue a plastic leftover that I somehow sculpted into the form of a cowboy hat.



They won't have cold feet in the Dragonfly ... because they ain't have none!

A new jet plane for the Joe's! Below is the picture from yojoe.com .



This is one of the newer toys. But I have found me a 1:48 scale F117 model kit, so I doesn't matter to me that it did not appear in the original cartoon series.


Destro feels suspicious about the new jetplane.



This F117 model kit will become my GI Joe Sky Sweeper Jet stealth plane. Story goes the Joe's use this plane to look as if it were a Cobra plane. This way they can easely infiltrate enemy airspace...

I will use the finished model in Necromunda games to represent one of my Outside Assets homerules from my previous blog post.

The G.I. Joe Combat Jet Skystriker [XP-14F] was first released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 1983.



This fighter jet was one of the most iconic vehicles used by GI Joe. It appeared frequently in the cartoon series. Since I never had the toy, I'll now make me a 28mm version.
cool



The purchase from eBay arrived by mail, and the Joe's started inspection immediatelly. You never know if Cobra sabotaged anything...

It is now clear that I'll have to buy me some cans of spraypaint. It's crazy to paint this with small paint pots.



But how to use airplanes and fighter jets in Necromunda? Well, in order to be able to use these magnificent scale models, I made up some houserules (toco.be/homerules).

Outside Assets

You can buy an asset between fights. Each asset can only be used once. If you want to use it more than once then you have to buy multiples. You can then use the asset at anytime during your turn. When using the asset, place the scale model on the table (just for fun and making great pictures). Remove the model when dice are rolled and results are applied.

Airstrike (100 credits) You may land a Missile of your choice anywhere on the table. Use the scatter dice. Do not use the scatter dice if the landing spot is in line of sight of one of your gang members in Overwatch status OR when you use your "Live Satellite Image" asset.

Napalm Strike (150 credits) Fire one Flamer shot from any top level on the table.

Live Satellite Image (100 credits) Remove all enemy Hidden counters and you may now reroll each single dice once during your turn.

I want vehicles for my GI Joe Necromunda team! There are a lot of useful military scale models out there. So I made a want-list:

Rattler: A10
Sky Sweeper Jet: F117 Stealth
Tomahawk: Sikorsky 53 or Super Puma
Dragonfly: Cobra Chopper
Warthog: Assault Amphibious Vehicle AAV-7A1 formerly known as LVTP-7
Skystriker: F14 Tomcat
AWE Striker: Desert Patrol Vehicle (DPV), formerly called the Fast Attack Vehicle (FAV) by Chenowth

The first vehicle I'll try to convert is Sgt. Slaughter's AMPHIBIOUS INFANTRY FIGHTING VEHICLE! The GI Joe Warthog A.I.F.V. was first released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 1988.

Beachhead is inspecting the hull for irregularities...

Now it's going to be my 28mm miniature wargames transporter! Rules can be made up with the 'Necromunda Ash Wastes Nomads - Vehicles' PDF.


Let the glue flow! But I must admit I get demoralized when I see all the separate parts that will make the tank's treads...

When I started this GI Joe project for Necromunda I was searching for certain models and parts to create the famous toy soldiers.

Now it's more the other way around. I see a certain miniature and then think: hey, that guy looks like X from GI Joe.

That's why I added Big Boa and Raptor to the team:



The small falcon comes from the The Battle of Five Armies game.

I need to add Dreadnocks to form another faction. Here's Zandar and his sister Zarana. They both still lack their pink hair dye.



I never really liked this toy soldier. But then I found a 28mm version of Lightfoot (and added some antenna's to his head). He's one of the Necromunda team now too.



Road Pig is based on a Mage Knight miniature. I added a brick that came from a HeroClix miniature to his weapon. He is put on a scenic base to elevate him a little bit because the Mage Knight miniature was a little bit too small.



The Iron Grenadier is a warrior from i-Kore's Void 1.1 game. I still have to glue his dagger (from a Napoleontic game) to his waist.



I have 6 more Iron Grenadiers. So I need Destro and the Baroness to lead those gangers. (Image above.)

Serpentor was created by dr. Mindbender in an atempt to build the ultimate soldier for Cobra.

I created him from the Kobra HeroClix miniature and added a metal horn in the form of a cobra from GW's Skeleton Warriors regiment box.



In the picture below you can see the miniatures I am going to paint and use to represent dr. Mindbender and his B.A.T.'s. They're not my best conversion, but I think they are sufficient enough.



We'll need some extra heroes to fight the cobra warriors above. Lady Jaye and her lover Flint (a vintage lead miniature from 1984 by Grenadier) will be more than a match.







Gung-Ho is a 40K Mordian Iron Guard and Crazylegs is an X-wing pilot with added plastic backpack. Again, paint will finish the job.



In order to use all these converted miniatures in Necromunda fights I came up with the idea to use them as Hired Guns. You can find a draft on my website www.toco.be/homerules .
