STILL More Sci-Fi Skirmishin’ stuff

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

Another couple options for Amanda’s replacement… The one on the left is from Reaper Miniatures Chronoscope line. The figure came with an open hand and the option of the BFG (shown here) or a Big Dang Wrench (one end would be held in the hand and the bulk of it resting on her shoulder). The figure on the right is from Artizan Designs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang line.

A couple Catachan Imperial Guardsmen (Guardspersons?) from Games Workshop (pictured here completely without their permission!) Actually the girlie with the big dang laser cannon is pre-catachan/cadian/valhallan/etc… She’s actually one of the Old Guard that I recently stripped for repainting. There’s one for sale on ebay at the moment… it’s currently £12 (+£4 shipping to Canada)?! The other chap with the Plasma Rifle is a more recent Catachan.

Speaking of Imperial Guard… and ebay… Three Catachan Sentinels arrived in the mail yesterday. I won a total of four of them all on one day last week on ebay. The grand total for all four (including shipping) was ~$35CAD… approximately the same as the suggested retail in CAD for ONE!? Why four, you might ask?! Well, honestly, I didn’t really expect to win ANY of them!?

…and a couple more Viridian Strike Commandos…

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

The next week will be a mad scramble to get everything ready for the Hordes of the Things Campaign which will be taking place ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!!

After that I have some terrain and vehicles I want to make for some upcoming Spaces Skirmish/Adventures. Some of the vehicles will be the Sentinels and a Leman Russ tank I picked up about a year ago, but also I want to do a few scratch builds – the shuttle (or Dropship?) from the Muttonchop Express… part of me would like to model the interior of the Muttonchop Express for some onboard actions… but that might be going a bit too far for now… we shall see…


  1. I remember your imperial guard... such good times. I eventually painted my plastic Space Marines, and I'm still holding those Space Orcs of MK's. They may see daylight again.

    I like those Viridian guys, nice camo.

  2. cheers!

    I've been using them for Savage Worlds Sci-Fi skirmishing. We've been having a lot of fun with it - it reminds me of when we were playing the original 40K Rogue Trader - where we just used ANYTHING we had available!

  3. I like the orange clad gal. The jump suit turned out quite well!

  4. Hi, as a avid follow of your blog, and also playtester fo flying lead' it would be remiss of me not to suggest you give them a go if you can, they are fast n furious and have a combat system similar to the HOtt rules i know you like using, keep up the good work and please... more French Indiams wars stuff, it is making me want to sort out my 7 years wars figures, cheers Shaun
