Steampunk weapons

I was walking past a novelty shop on the weekend and these caught my eye in the window. Now the prices were cheaper than what they are on the website, between $40 to $60. The one I really wanted to get isn't on the site for some reason. This one was $199 It was a very nice Blunderbuss about 80cm long and some nice detailing. But have a look.

Yes! I have done something. Not finished though.

I have actually done some painting but mainly tests at the moment. I haven't done a lot of painting over the years and relearning a lot of stuff as I go.

I don't know why I started with these guys. I have a lot of old figures such the late 80's, 90's plastic skeleton. I have about 60 of those. The archer I was trying to get a crusader style look but was struggling to it right so I went with the leather jerkin look.

Some more of a few things undercoated and awaiting paint.

These guys I got in a trade. Not a 100% sure of these guys they may be Ghurkers but will probably paint them up as Aussies for a North Africa campaign.

These guys are from Eureka Miniature. I got them for possibly a Zombie survivors etc.
They still need to be finalised everything but at least I'm getting there.

Hunter Prey

I layed hands on a copy of Hunter Prey recently. I wasn't expecting much. But I was pleasantly surprised by it. I have seen similar story lines over the years but overall I thought it was worth watching.

I must admit I have to go into movies now with low expectations or otherwise I do come away with a disappointed feeling as with "The Expendables."!!

Back to Reality.

Well! Back to reality with a thud. Back sitting in front of my work computer after two glourious weeks in Thailand. I highly recommend that you go there.

There was an up side though when I got back these guys below (minus the bottom right guy.) were waiting for me at home.

I've been buying a range of sci-fi minis laterly in the hope of possibly some sort of skirmish. Possibly in the "Battletech Universe" or something similar maybe like "Serenity". I never played Necromundia or really much of 40k.

I will try and get some photos of what I have up, some of the miniatures that I have bought I am unsure of the manufacture but they were from Spain.
