Terrorist - finished!

Counter-Strike Terrorist
34 mm






Well, he's done. I thought Photoshopping in a screenshot of the CS map "de_dust" as a background would look good... and it does. I think this is a fantastic mini, I had a lot of fun painting it!

More tiny Germans...

German gun tractors and artillery range finders
15 mm





Again, not masterpiece quality, but done surprisingly fast.

"Achtung Baby!"

My brother recently bought a large army of German infantry for the game "Flames of War". Since I'm staying at his place over Christmas I thought I'd help him paint them.

WW2 German infantry and gun tractor
15 mm




These aren't painted to my usual standards, but the army set contains about a hundred infantry and over a dozen tanks, tractors, and field guns, so speed and efficiency are of the essence... The men will eventually be based in groups of five so the bases aren't finished yet.

Running, buying, grr argh.

'Tis the season to madly Christmas shop, so not a lot of painting is getting done. Instead, here's a pic of the figures I sent to Cindy for the mini exchange (see Dec. 7 below):



Apparently she likes the goblin best, I don't blame her as it's clearly the best sculpt.

Update

I've given him a base, matching the popular Counter Strike maps "dust" and "dust2". And highlighting black is the worst thing ever... And there is so much of it on him :(

I've Got Mail!

Holland, land of windmills, dikes and almost-100%-legal marijuana. And mini painters! Coolminiornot.com's 6th mini exchange is underway, and both my sender and receiver are in the Netherlands.

Received:
from Salvador A:



Dwarf Burglar by Privateer Press.
(I love the round goggles!)



Sent:
To (the impressive sculptor) Cindy D, some historical relics:
- one Games Workshop knight, c. 1988
- one Grenadier female cleric, late 80's
- one GW goblin, c. 1991
- one GW "nurgling", recent
(I forgot to take pics)

"Go go go!"

I've made some decent progress on Mr. Terrorist:



The armband is sculpted onto the figure, so I guess it should be... a coloured armband. I went with flat red since I don't want this guy to display any specific political allegiance.

I came across this image of an Iraqi policeman on the web. A sign of how screwed up things are in Iraq I guess... :(
