Soviet Riflemen, Pulp Adventurers, Brits and a Space Marine…

Clearing up a few things off my painting table…

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


This is another I-Kore Void figure (currently available from Scotia Grendel). In the sort of Sci-fi universe I like to run the Imperial Space Marines are THE BIG STICK! You do not want to mess with them. If you have attracted enough attention from Imperial authorities you have EFFed it up BIG TIME and are going to pay in PAIN!

Therefore I went with a bright orange power armour because they ARE the ULTIMATE badasses. They don’t give a f*ck if you know where they are… and, in fact, they want you to KNOW that they don’t give a f*ck if you know where they are!


An assortment of WW2 Soviet Infantrymen. These are a mix of figres from Artizan Designs and The Assault Group (I think…). I do also have Crusader Miniatures and Bolt Action Miniatures missed into my commie horde… but I don’t think there’s any in this lot…


Some Pulp-ish Adventurers! From left to right is a Bolshevik Heroine from Copplestone Castings, a German Zeppelin commander from Pulp Figures (who will be used as Freiherr Jöchim Von-und-zu Höllertal-Fürchtberg, retired German Army officer, in my new Savage Worlds Pulp/Chtulhu campaign – see more at Savage Timmy’s Playhouse), a “Trainee Agent” (also from Coppelstone), and a western type from Artizan Designs.


Two more Brits that I seemed to have missed when I did the last lot.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
More Russians likely… another batch or two and they’ll all be done! I’ll have a full (well… understrength) company of them! Well, I also have a KV-1 to finish and a jeep-like light truck…. and some sort of field gun… At some point I’d like to add a few more things. Maybe some Sailors, AT riflemen, and more tanks…

I’ll also be working on some more 20s Pulp-Horror Adventure types… and some Fallshirmjägers (which just arrived!).

  2. So the marines are sort of like the Sardaukar from Dune, then.

    I like the look of that German fellow...

    Yes, that guy should do very nicely - unless you have a sauerkraut-sucking hun with a cane in civvys?
