An Alien Life Form - for Space Hulk

A quick 1 hour paintjob from Four A Miniatures. I must admit, I think it would be funny to field Alf in a game of spacehulk with some customized houserules (just as an obnoxious obstacle). He is supposed to fit into this bunch:

You might say this would only be fun in theory - but that is no problem... My Space Hulk comrade moved overseas last year, so it is not likely Alf and the others will ever see action... But in theory it could be fun...

Another ewal dvergar

An ewal dwergar from Clams range of multipart chaosdwarves.
I feel this one is so much more me than the chaos dwarf Sweyn some posts ago. But enough of that.

As I'm home taking care of my 1-year old  untill he can start in daycare, I  do have the time to trawl the internet for miniatures to buy, though I do not have the time to actually paint them. So he and me has been to the postoffice several times to pick up daddys packages lately... and will continue to do that in the time to come - a real daddy and son thing :)

I couldn't wait any longer for the goblinaid miniatures - and even though the complete range wasn't out at the time, I  placed an order for some goblin goodies. We picked them up this morning, and they are really nice models. I bought the 10 I liked the most, and they are surpringsingly nice sculpts.

I also found some real Kevin Adams blood bowl goblins that looked quite cool. I hope we can pick them up at the postoffice next week or so.

And I have an additon to my spacehulk collection of odd sci/fi miniatures... more of that soon.

And theres the ebay miniatures... :)

And Reaper bones... has not arrived yet...

Nor has the Otherworld adventureres...

A ratogre by Jes Goodwin - Actuallly a much better model than it looked when I first painted it some 20-25 years ago.

I like it much more now :)

It seems to me, that the sculpts of Jes Goodwin survives the test of time better than most.

I have bought several new miniatures for the lead mountain - Some very old minis (sorry Squeaks) at ebay and some very new from the Goblinaid campaign. Some of them might come up here one day...

I'm still looking for that limited edition fimir - if you have a spare one, I'll take it off your hands for 20£ including postage, thank you very much.

On the paintdesk

On the paintdesk:

I still haven't decided which project to focus on...

The ambull has long been on my to do list... But especially one thing has been troubling me: Was I to put it on fantasybase or a sci/fi base for use in Space Hulk? Being a fantasy guy, I ended up following my heart. Fantasy basing it is.

The ratogre is one the miniatures from back in the days that I have stripped to repaint. It's a Goodwin sculpt, if I remember correct, and not at all as bad as it looked before getting stripped :)

The Frodo on foot was just an in between paintjob, I did because I missed doing someting with that kind of face... Nothing fancy, but I enjoyed painting it... It's nearly finished, as you can see.

Another Kev Adams goblin - I'm growing quite fond of them! :) And speaking of the Goblinmaster, I'm really looking forward to buy a good deal of those goblinaid sculpts once the whole bunch is up for sale. Gotta support the goblinmaster!

The little one in the back could be part of a new nostalgia project... I'm not sure yet...
