10mm WW2 German Flak and Medics, Soviet AA

It was clean up the desk time in the Harwood Hobbies Man Cave...finished off a few 10mm WW2 items.

I tried doing something different for the Germans - I used fine flock for grass, with a bit of static grass added, some clump foilage and a tuft.  I think it looks good.  :-)

15mm KillBots!

I picked up some of The Scourge from Rebel Minis, as I like the idea of a terminator-style robot apocalypse.  I thought I'd jazz them up with a pea dot camo scheme.

I'm a fan of Darcy Coates, and thought I'd try one of her books out on Audible instead of eBook.  This one was FANTASTIC!  Loved the story - very spooky!

New Harwood Hobbies Kickstarter!

I've launched my latest Kickstarter, in which I hope to raise funding in order to release some miniatures I purchased from Iain Colwell of Tengu Miniatures a while back.  

More White Dragon 15mm Miniatures

I've finished up the last of the infantry and smaller mechs that I got from the White Dragon Kickstarter.  Here is a small taste of the latest batch:

I'm really enjoying painting 15mm miniatures from a variety of companies - the more that I purchase the more I realize how incredibly detailed they are!  The pictures on the websites often do not do them justice.

White Dragon Miniatures!

I started the immense task of painting up all the 15mm miniatures I acquired in the White Dragon Kickstarter.  I have about 60% of the infantry done so far, but have most of the mechs undone as of yet.  

There is a crazy amount of detail on these 15mm minis and I'm afraid my sad attempts at painting don't do them justice!   However, I went for harsh highlights to make them pop on the tabletop.

Hopefully the last in the series, as it was "Meh".

15mm Ikwen

I came across these miniatures on the site and really liked their look.  These are 15mm miniatures and I picked up the platoon deal they have on the website.

I painted up all these after about three days of straight working on them.  As always with 15mm, I try to kick up the contrast and brighten the colours.  I am extremely happy with how they came out!

Painted while listening to:  The Eaton by John K. Addis

This book was quite a surprise!  I really enjoyed it.  Horror fans will enjoy it.  :-)

Death Dog and Transluscent Tendrils

I finished up these three miniatures very quickly - a Death Dog from Reaper, and Shadow Tentacles from Reaper Bones.

Mainly drybrushing on the dog, and just basing on the tentacles.

Painted while listening to:  Don't Read Alone by Paul Finch

Hmmmm...most of the stories were okay.  The last one (and the longest) really stands out and makes me think back to it days after I listened to it.  Great narrator too!
