Something different...


Today's post brings you two entirely different kind of mini's. First up are some Infinity Ariadna Highlanders. I have painted these up to resemble Northwind Highlanders for my Battletroops games, or rather skirmishes set in the Battletech background. But I also am going to use them as groundpounders for the British Star Empire from the Toby Frost books featuring Space Captain Smith. I am at the moment looking into a suitable Smith model to supplement them.

So here are the Highlanders:

These truly are very nice figures and when at the Crisis I might be tempted to buy some others just to paint.

Second is a rather more unusual set of figures. These are firemen included with a model fire truck my son got for his B-day. They were factory painted in red and silver. My lad picked them out the package and said: well real firemen aren't red Dad, the fire is red... and since he's Fireman Sam fan to the core, Dad went and took his brushes.

Mystery Inc. Part II


While these figures already partook in the battle at the Ducosim and are thus shown in the batrep of said battle, I will show the Mystery Machine and the ladies here in more detail. Partly because Anne specially asked for the pictures ;-)

First a group-shot:

Here are Daphne and my all-time favourite Velma.

Some separate shots of the van. The model is from Armour Cast and most of the bits used to upgrade it are GW and Ainsty vehicle parts.

Somewhere on the unpainted pile are the regular, unarmed, Mystery Inc team, but I will be painting other stuff before I start on them.

Cheers Sander
