Happy New Year 2014

Once again it is New Years Eve and I will once again try and make status for this blog. The blog has been running almost two years now and I am still happy with it. This year, however, I had to break the rules. I had one month of dead space. Still I think it has been a pretty good run and even though not as productive as 2013 I did manage to paint 83 different miniatures in 28mm scale + one vehicle.

All the miniatures I painted in 2014 (minus 6).

You will probably notice that the pictures include quite a bunch of miniatures which hasn't been featured on the blog previously. This is because it is running projects which are still not 100% done. You will see more of this in the beginning of 2015. 

I am, once again, happy with the result.

Some of the things you can see which I will post more about in 2015 is my Saurian Sci-Fi Army, it includes low tech Saurians mixed with ultra modern and power armoured miniatures. Other things will be more Space Orks, Civilians and my Fantasy Dwarf Army.

Battlezone Saurians.

Happy New Year from Deathworld Adventures! See you in 2015!

Merry Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas! 

So I managed to run the blog almost two years now and so far only one month of dead space. I think it is has been a pretty good run so far and this blog is one of the things that keep me going in the hobby.

For this years Christmas I managed to paint my Christmas Marines. I had them prepped last year, but didn't manage to get any paint on them, so it was pretty straight forward this year.

The models are a funny concept, drunk and stoned Marines (Yes, I painted the cigar as a huge joint). Even though the sculpts are not the best I enjoyed painting these. I do suspect that these were re-casts though, since after I stripped them they had lack of detail and multiple moldlines and other of the known signs of a re-cast, so maybe an original would look like better sculpted, I don't know.

Anyway, even if they are re-cast I decided to keep them for myself, I bought them on Ebay years ago and can't remember who the seller was and I am not planning to resell them.

So Merry Christmas and I hope to have an update or two more before 2015.

Some Vehicles, Some Terrain

Lately it seems that I have been doing a lot of random stuff, which is quite okay, since it keeps my busy. But one thing I have been coming back to is the terrain and other small unfinished stuff.

This time I have cut a statue in halves and made it a sunken Buddha statue, build a shack and painted some vehicles and bits.

Savages raid an ARBCO depot in the wastelands.

The Buddha statue with a mix of EM4 and Four A miniatures.

Everything is on the cheap side. The Buddha statue is from a second hand store and the shack is build from old cardboard boxes and glue.

The ARBCO shack.

Also I painted some vehicles and a motor I had lying around. The white pick.up truck is from an unknown company, but I think it ended up pretty good. The red truck is from Ramshackle Games and had an update to an existing paintjob, the motor is from Ramshackle too.

47 Beer Truck.

I added some grafitti to the licence plates, to give the truck some character.

Also the tank isn't glued on, so it can be removed.
