Ratskin Brave with Musket

Night Time Painting!
Anyhow, had a productive night, and decided to take a late night photo of my now finished Brave. Great model (although not really the most grimdark 40k piece! But i love it anyway.) Really pleased with the eyes on this chap, and happy how the face-paint came out. Think I'm going to stipple a bit of rust on a few more things now since it brightens up a piece of scenery quite nicely.

First Ratskin and Two Eschers

This was a fun model to paint and i'm pleased with how the little fella turned out, the little symbol on his rifle was a native american symbol I doodled on.

Ratskin Renegade with Lasgun

Never painted pink before! I am thinking I need to spruce up the bases on my guys a little, might get some scenic ones! Haven't decided yet. But just wanted to start painting so didn't have time to fiddle with fancy basing and just get a ratskin painted up. Really enjoying these old Necromunda models.
Some more girls step up, going to do all of my Chainswords with the industrial hazard stripes, love that look. Although I just notice now in the photo that a couple of the stripes are slightly irregular!

A few new models have arrived and are primed and ready to go! At this moment painting up the brave, I am taking my time with these boys getting one done at a time, very enjoyable way to paint but slow!


Hello everybody, welcome to my blog. I have been painting and nerding since April 1996, when my father took me to a newsagent to buy me a magazine to keep me quiet. I saw my first White Dwarf there and now my room is full of hundreds of little men in metal and plasti.

A fellow little man fan CPBelt from http://theminiaturespage.com/ suggested I create a blog, so I have done so, I will be posting up my painting projects I have been working on, Necromunda, WFB, 40k and Historicals, my interest waxes and wanes with time between the various project so there is no guarantee what is next.

I have always loved the Necromunda figures, it was the height of Necromunda when I got into the hobby and so my early days of White Dwarf where filled with these models and I've always had a massive soft spot for them, and my early days of gaming was with Necromunda and Gorkamorka as well as 2nd Ed 40k, although I never did at the time own any Necromunda figures! It's my goal to collect every model from my nostalgia filled memories of the 1995-1997 figures.

These Eschers are painted up Punk Rockers/Hair Band girls from the 80's bright colours and big hair so what else could they be!

 Orlock Juve and Ratskin Ganger

These wip figures show my new thing, Grey Undercoat, for me the perfect balance between providing a bit of shading and still keeping the colours vibrant, so we will see how they go! I am not sure on what to do with the Orlocks just yet, although their obvious Biker looks is making me lean towards black leather jackets and blue jeans, we will see how it goes. With the ratskins I am thinking up earthy tones for clothing, with Albino ratskin cloaks and some Native American inspired facial warpaint, If I can give an impression of these guys I will be very pleased.
