Hero Quest Part VI


Some more baddies today! I love painting up the Hero Quest figures because even though they are very simple in detail they have loads of character. Continuing with the figures from the core set here are the Orcs and Fimir all done up.

Now a lot of characters need to be done...

Today's update brings you some of the coolest army-builder troops in the private 80's Pulp project I have been able to obtain: some Vipers.

I really like the old-school look of these with the weapons as seen in the cartoons rather then the real life weapons used on most of the other figures.

Next up some more Hero Quest

Still here! Yo Joe!


As said earlier, it's a mad-house at work. The little hobby time I manage to find, I'd rather be painting than blogging so I have been lagging behind in that field. Now I have had had some time to take pictures and put up some posts. So let's see what has been done lately.

Here's another 80's Pulp Character in the form of Cover Girl.

Of course she needs her trusted Wolverine tracked missile launcher.

More 80's Pulp and Hero Quest figures will be up here soon, sorry for you Historical guys but at the moment I am mostly doing these because I can paint one figure on an evening.

Proof of life!?


Very much like Lord Awdry over at 28mm Victorian Warfare, I am finding myself incredibly busy with the start of the new school-year. While I have been painting some figures, a lot of time goes into other, work related, stuff.

Even so I managed to finished these Prussian Landwehr troops. They are white metal 20mm figures which are the stretchgoals of HäT industries second crowdfunder project. I was lucky to get a few early to put some paint on them. Great little sculpts and they paint up nicely.

From left to right they depict:

A surgeon, ADC, sapper and officer.

Hero Quest Part V


Meet Skulkar the evil sorcerer included in the starter box. He really reminds me of Skeletor from the he-Man/ Masters of the Universe franchise.

I really like him and the way I painted him is to represent Skeletor. Now I have also bought 2 of GW's Empire Battlewizard boxes because the boy likes to play a Fire/ Bright wizard and I want to create some more wizards as  special scenario characters. Next up is a re-basing of the Gargoyle. When I got it, the sword had broken as well as one of the wings. I re-attached them and cleaned up the seems. I also rebased it since I thought this base looked more impressive.

As you can plainly see, the Gargoyle is still only based not painted yet. This is mainly due to the fact that I do not know what scheme to choose. Some more research is clearly what's needed.

Hero Quest Part IV


Today I have some more of the bad guys to show you. The skeletons and goblins shown here are the lesser of the evil troops. In game, they are really easy to get rid of but they can also be lucky and that means Heroes in trouble. Mostly they come in great numbers so I will be looking out for some old skool GW plastic skellies in the future.

 One of each of these species has a Renedra base, I used these to try out whether it looked better than the original bases. The verdict: they don't

Hero Quest Part III


Some scenery for you all to look at today. I have tried to get some paint on the HQ weaponrack from the box, I painted a gate from the Warhammer Quest box game that I got in my Starter box and the tomb which I remodelled to have a Renedra plastic side instead of paper.

Some more baddies are awaiting me now.

Cheers Sander
