Okay, a bit of New Year fun. Started painting up these fabulous miniatures from Khurasan. Talk about bears with attitude! Despite the fact there are four, it struck me that a ‘mercenary/salvage team/squad’ of these would benefit from a female leader perhaps. I couldn’t decide which was best so painted three options. What do you think?
As you will see, these are imagined more from the print rendition of these characters rather than the 2014 movie. Highlander Studios (Rod) is great to deal with and there miniatures are full of character. Shame they are in the wrong country. You may have to email directly about these A-Holes and their Space Pals.
Varnish a bit shiny here. Will tone down when matt spray arrives!
Maybe a bit chunky by today’s styles but full of character and very well sculpted models.
I’m not sure on the history but I believe they were long out of production but many if not all of them can be had at RAFM in the US (link).
These are the first bunch that made it to the paint table – low-tech sci fi military. While humming and hawing over a paint scheme I Googled and saw this blokes brilliant paint job (can’t find the link right now but will insert later – Found it: Link). I’ve followed suit and gone with the GI colour scheme too.
All of the figures needed stripping from an over-zealous previous owners preference for Enamel Gloss. That’s not a critique – they kinda resembles some of my first paint jobs in the early eighties and enamels were the default back then.
