Some 10mm Sci-Fi

I'm back on the 1/144 scale sci-fi bandwagon. So, I ordered a few packs of Reaper CAV vehicles to paint up.

The models are nice, and painting was very straightforward. Masks were done with putty.

Here are the finished vehicles. Looking forward to doing some more of these.

'Til next time.

Dragon Turtle

Another unique monster miniature from Reaper. This one is the "Tortoise Dragon," which in reality is just Reaper's way of saying Dragon Turtle...a high-level D&D aquatic staple.

The challenge for this figure was trying to find a base that accommodated its sprawling gait. I wound up using a War of the Ring cavalry base with the depressions filled in with cork.

When all was done, I was really happy with the base (I wanted a sandy beach), and the figure painted up really nice.

I used a little Painted Turtle inspiration for the shell painting.

Holidays are coming up fast...time to get a few more projects underway!

'Til next time.

30K Terminators

The Betrayal At Calth project continues. This time around, I've finished off the five Terminators and Leader figure for the Ultramarines force.

Holy crap...these guys took a lot of effort...and more than the end result would suggest. All the figures are OK, except that I really struggled with the white leather dangly bits. Got to figure out a better way of doing those for next time around.

'Til next time.
