Big Helen

Another big girl in 1/20 scale – Helen from Scale120 (although she is actually 90mm – quite misleading 🙂 ). She is one piece resin cast, so there was nothing to assemble. I just removed subtle mold lines. I think she is part of Maschinen Krieger (Ma.K) science fiction universe. Again airbrush was helpful in shading her clothes as it is homogenous greenish uniform. Because of that painting her took me no more time than painting an average 28mm miniature.





He stole it from us!

Olfo ‘Fast Feet’ from Andrea Miniatures – the miniature clearly refering to Bilbo Baggins from Lord of the Rings. Maybe even now he is reaching his sticky little fingers for the Precious, nasty little thief! Who knows…
Anyway, the miniature is in 54mm scale, although he is only 35mm tall. He is surely a halfling. All this traveling gear was fun to paint. He also has quite expressive face. It was a nice variety from all the other paintjobs.





Assassin on a large scale

I wanted to paint some larger scale figure, but nothing too complicated. Assassin in 1/20 scale (90mm) from Atelier iT seemed just perfect. It is not overloaded with details, yet it is not too simple. It is just great to start adventure with larger scale miniatures.
Shading sketch was done with airbrush – skin first, then (after covering skin area with mask) jeans and top. This was an adventage of painting larger scale miniature with homogeneous surfaces. Painting of pre-shaded miniature was faster and easier.
The base was made from plastic card attached to a wooden plinth. It was painted by airbrush and then I appplied some pigments to simulate dirt.







I think I will paint some more big girls in future 🙂

Pssst, they are coming…

Who is coming?” you may ask. Well, since I recently started watching The Walking Dead I wanted to paint a couple of apocalypse survivors. I also wanted to try painting a bit larger miniatures than 28-32 mm I usually paint. Scale 1/35 (~50 mm) seemed perfect. Not too big and not so small. There is quite a lot of miniatures in this scale that suit my plans, including Apocalypose Survivors from Evolution Miniatures. This is the first of two from the set. The miniature in 1/35 scale (especially the one I painted) is much more detailed than the one in 32 mm scale. There is more to paint but the effect is IMHO better.






I will name the painted miniatures in this project after The Walking Dead characters (even the ones that already died – there is quite a lot of those)



This one looks kinda old, so I will call him Survivor Dale. More survivors will join the group. Maybe even some zombies will appear 😉
