Ich bin geil, Rana Geil

Sorry about the title, but it was so obvious :)

I've been painting the Space Pirate/Bounty Hunter Sjoerd Trowee did for me, or actually did back in 2014 for the Froth Eisley sculpting competition (the Forthers United (FU UK!) Sculpting Competition), but later offered on to me. The miniature were mastered last year, but added to an empty slot in the production mould I've just have had made.

It's a nice, but also very clean miniature by Sjoerd and I really found him hard painting. Not sure if it's the "cleanness" or just that I'm feeling rather rusty when it comes to painting Sci-Fi miniatures. And using bright colours too, didn't help at all. But I've added some dirt and battle damage to it covering up the most dodgy paintings and obvious mistakes - and a nice busy base, to steal a bit of focus, always helps :)

Clam Minis: Rana Geil

Ayone no of the faith of the other Froth Eisley entries? Were any of the other lovely entries ever cast up and made commercially available? I'd definitely like to here about it, if so.

Till next time, take care.

Dwarf Parthfinder

I've had the brushes out for the first time in ages - and rather than finishing some of the many half-painted ones standing here, I decided starting a newly cast piece - The EDX-90 Dvergr Mountaineer from my own Ewal Dvergar range.

I sculpted this miniature myself and had it cast recently. It's always special holding a newly cast miniature in your hand, you have spent hours sculpting yourself - even more weird putting your brush to it .... actually quite a scary feeling, it is...

But mission completed - and here he is - first miniature of 2017. Hope you like it :)

Collecting John Pickford: Arnórr and Finngálkin

A shameless plug for my own little miniature venture as I've just made another two Pickford sculpts available and I have taken delivery of a limited quantity of Arnórr - an evil human warrior (Ewal Besekr) and Finngálkin - a dwarfish centaur creature.

Clam Minis: Arnórr - Ewal Beserkr 

Arnórr is a Pickford classic. A heroic scaled evil human dressed up with lots of classic Pickford demonic face all over and a awesome living war hammer - and comes with 3 choices of helmets.

Clam Minis: Finngálkin - Ewal Dvergr Centaur

Finngálkin is a evil centaur creature raised from the furnace of doom. The Centaur is a mix of dwarf and pony and comes with two animal themed visor helmets - bull and pony.

Thanks to White Knight Miniatures Imperium for allowing this to happens.
