Kickstarter Preview #4

Sometimes I am really bad at painting.  Sadly, here is an example with this woman.  Like some of my previous miniatures, there are three versions of her - normal, armed and zombified.

The normal version was supposed to have her holding a smoke in her hand, but I think the cigarette was destroyed in the casting process.  :-(

Kickstarter Preview #3

Okay, I have a bit of a weird one for you this time.  :-)

The sculptor gave this one to me for free, and called it the snot monster.

I did the base the same as the scientists - maybe they will track him down eventually...

Next Batch of SOTR Germans

I got a bunch of Germans done a few days ago for Secrets of the Third Reich.

A few more troopers with Panzerfausts.
These are the Wolfrunners, to go along with the Wolfrunner Sergeant in my last SOTR post.  They came with these silly puny heads, so I replaced them with some decently-sized ones.

A sniper.  I forgot to do the rain pattern on it afterwards, but I think it still looks good.


A werewolf!  One of the few werewolf sculpts on the market that I like!
Painted while listening to:  Ripper by David L. Golemon
The only part of the book I enjoyed was the two and a half hour "prologue", which started out in Victorian London and later in 1916 Mexico.  The rest of the book was meh.

Modern Microarmour Game

On September 5 2014, I had a modern microarmour game using the Fields of Fire rules, and later the "A Fate of a Nation" set from Flames of War.  Fields of Fire was not too bad, but Flames of War was horrible.  We're still looking for a decent ruleset...

The desert-style terrain was Grant's, and I brought some terrain that I recently purchased from Gunbird/Wayswatcher on LAF.  I have a ton of Leven buildings to paint too, just need some decent bases.

Kickstarter Preview #2

Here's a few miniatures painted by Simon (aka. Stone Cold Lead).  Waaaayy better than my sad attempts.  ;-)

The one in the middle is the Black Widow, a crime boss in Morabia.  She is surrounded by various thugs and an assassin.

Kickstarter Preview #1

I have a number of sculpts that I didn't have enough funding to get into production.  I'll be running a kickstarter in the near future in order to do just that.  I have some miniatures painted professionally, but have a number that aren't - so I'm working on painting them.  Again, my sad attempts...

These four are part of a scientific hazmat team.  It was hard painting the yellow, so they are definitely not my best painting efforts.  I added some bright flock to the bases to add a bit of strangeness.

As I finish them I'll post more miniatures.

Harwood Hobbies Down for a Bit!

Some of you may have noticed that the Harwood Hobbies website is down right now.  I have decided to move the website to a different website creator, Weebly.  I'm working on the new site right now and will hopefully have it up by the end of the week.

On a side note, it has been snowing here in Calgary:

It's the first snowfall this year, and seems a wee bit early!  :-)

And of course, everyone needs a puppy pic:

Rocky is trying out his Halloween outfit!   ;-)

More SOTR Germans!

I keep pumping out the Secrets of the Third Reich German miniatures at an alarming rate!

A LMG gunner and crew member.

A Panzerfaust team

The last guy is a Wolfrunner Sergeant - I like the pose.  I'm working on some Wolfrunners right now, but didn't like their puny heads.  ;-)

Painted while listening to:  I finished off The Kraken Project (from the last post).  Garbage.  Didn't like it.

I finished these guys while listening to Ice Station Wolfenstein.  It looked promising - secret German Antarctic base, cool!  Uhhhhh....not so much.  I didn't like this one either.  *sigh*
