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?
A.) Goldilocks “Rebel Carolee” and the three bears
B.) Goldilocks “Rebel Hunter” and the three bears
C.) Goldilocks “Highlander Urban Fantasy Set 1” and the three bears
D.) or the four bears, having ditch Goldilocks all together!
Let me know what you think. Just for fun.
Following some great feedback and comments on TMP here are a few additional alternatives to the above options…
E.) Goldilocks “Khurasan’s Lara” and the three bears
F.) Goldilocks “Khurasan’s Teacup” and the three bears
G.) Goldilocks “Khurasan’s Lily6; villians from the Sepulvedan Control Forces” and the three bears
H.) Goldilocks “Khurasan’s Navy ‘something’ site offline in part at the moment” and the three bears
I.) Goldilocks “Khurasan’s Zombie Survivors; site offline in part at the moment” and the three bears
J.) Goldilocks “Micromachine repaint” and the three strange wookies.
A trio of Copplestone Casting bears and a Great Ape from Highlander Studios, all in 15/18mm. All perfect for fantasy beasts or Pulp ‘companions’.
I love the names some people come up with!
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!
eBay is a wonderful thing and keeps getting better with saved searches and notifications and such. That’s where these chaps came from along with a host of others – all 5 of the original box sets produced under the Traveller brand, made by Citadel in the 80s. In total over a 100 miniatures ranging from military and aliens to adventurers and space-suited guys. I’m almost embarrassed to say how much I paid for them – £23.22!
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.
