Works in Progress

Buck

At Nashcon last weekend I picked up a few MDF kits from Impudent Mortal.  They are not very involved kits, so I knocked them out when I just had a few minutes of free time.  This set is the remote sentry weapon, but I think it will look good as some sort of crew-served system as well.  I placed a 28mm figure next to it for scale.  Note that the site of the weapon is translucent.

I started work over the weekend on three units of space ducks.  These were originally issued by Archive Miniatures and are difficult to find.  I am painting them in primary colors.  I started by priming them black and then dry brushing the whole figures in white.  Now I am painting in the various colors.  The original sculpt is a bit mushy, but they paint up just fine.

Also from Impudent Mortal, I picked up picked up this neat industrial kit.  While it is meant to be some sort of industrial tanks, I may use it as the engine room as I construct my space ship for science fiction games with Combat Patrol.

Finally, I put together these three Quonset huts from Impudent Mortal.  They are slightly bigger than the Dust Tactics ones.  These come in a pack of three.

I have begun working on an excellent building kit from Sally 4th.  Watch for a review and the finished product in a week or see when I return from a week of family vacation.

  1. Impressive Buck (as usual) – I definitely am ready to try Combat Patrol for sci-fi. You’ll have to tutor me on how you set GAMER values etc. I really am enjoying watching the Star Ducks coming to life, as I was for the Frinx you painted. The buildings look great as does the CSW. Hope your vacation goes well – there will be more lead/tin coming your way to keep your painting table and sci-fi units growing. Going out in tomorrow’s mail. I will complete my blog entries on all my casting (4 molds and 114 figures in the last two weeks), and don’t worry, I’m keeping most of them! Just got more Archive Star Rovers figures – and they are very 1980’s but really fun.

    I am really enjoying the nostalgia and “cuteness” of the 80’s figures. Thanks for sending me the star ducks. I have to pack for Costa Rica later today, but I am hoping o finish the star ducks and post a few pictures before I leave.

  3. Looking forward to them – have a great trip!
