Eldar Blast from the Past

Hello once again.  Today I am posting pics of my old figures I painted in the past.  This time it is some old Eldar figures from the 1990's, painted way back then.  Certainly not some of my favorite work, but since I've sold these off, I like to use this as an example of the progress made and the evolution of my painting skills..

Eldar troops, old school style:




All in all, they are not bad looking figures, but I wonder what they would've looked like if I'd given them a more updated look, or even touched them up for that matter.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy.  Just a few more Warhammer 40k figures left to post here before I can make what I am hoping is a grand return to historical figures.

Until then....

Progress on the Swiss Project

Hello once again!

I thought I would share some of my recent Swiss figures that I try to slip in between all the Warhammer 40k stuff to refresh my mind of the project.  In these trying times I have to spend most of my painting time working for profit, so the Swiss army has really fallen by the wayside, even though I still have about a dozen or so unfinished figures on the desk to be painted.

These pics are of a few of the newer ones done of the last few weeks:

I honestly have no idea where these are going to fit into the greater scheme, and I kept their colors intentionally open to interpretation.  There is a chance the middle guy might move a bit south and become an Italian mercenary, to go with my small Italian unit I am slowly building.

Here are some shots of some figures already arranged on their bases but not finished.  These are from about a year or so ago when this project was in full swing.

first up we have some Schwyz Pikemen:

Next up are some Glarus Halberds:

 I was running out of halberds so a few of these are still billmen until I can get another Mercenaries box with the plastic halberd and pole arm blades.

Finally, four Uri halberds:

 the guy on the left was another figures finished this past week.

Anyway, I am running out of time here tonight, but I just wanted to finally get some new pics of my Swiss stuff posted.  This project might be less of a priority than others but it is by no means dead.  Enjoy!

Even More Necromunda Figures

Hello again on this Friday the 13th!

Once again I have for you some Necromunda Figures of various sorts.  I have really been enjoying painting these quite a bit, to the point that I might look into buying some up to paint and resell in the future, if I could get my act together..

Anyway Here they are I hope you enjoy:

 Ratskin with Musket

 Ratskin Shaman

 Ratskin with Autogun

Delaque Ganger with Autogun

 Delaque Leader

 Delaque with Pistol and Knife.

 Goliath Juve with Laspistol and Knife

And there are still more to come.  All savaged from a garbage pile when a friend moved away.

Most of these are for sale on ebay.  Here is the link to my stuff:

Hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think!
