6mm Sci-Fi/Post Apoc Project (IV) - More scenics & vehicles

Its seems to be all Sci-Fi at the moment, this time around a few more bits and pieces for my growing 6mm Sci-Fi skirmish project:

Alien life forms (GW Tyranid spores)

Some civilian tech/mech teams for use as objectives and scenery (CinC Miniatures):

A bunch of vehicles(from Angel Barracks, Old Crow, Scotia, Old Crow and Angel Barracks respectively):

Some more buildings (Angel Barracks minis):

A kit bashed building:

And finally a little bit of the Jungle-like alien terrain for both skirmish gaming and Epic, its not very good but serves its purpose and was very cheap to make:

I haven't made much progress on my Epic stuff of late having become somewhat bored painting the same Imperial Guard Infantry man hundreds of times, still there are no* further distractions on my painting desk so should be able to get back to then soon.

* That's actually a complete lie as I'm hooked on painting individual sci-fi minis at the moment and have a small Old West project to get my teeth into, oh and few little fantasy miniatures have somehow managed to creep onto my painting desk!

A long time ago on a Blog far, far away - Star Wars - 6mm Project (II)

I very short post this time, briefly updating my little Star Wars project.

First up some Nomadic Desert Scavenger types(all minis from Irregular):

Some sort of Land Speeder:

And I have added some more Troopers including a squad leader/specialist type:

That's it for this time, but I do have a few posts ready to go with some more Sci-Fi stuff that I have been painting.

Napoleonic Naval - 1/1200th (Part 3) - The Scenics

The final post in this series, and probably the most appealing to those with no interest in this period, the scenics.

The scenic pieces are all Langton and the Merchantmen are from Navwar:

Coastal Fort:

Harbour & buildings, along with blockship and floating battery:

Another Coastal Fort:

Telegraph station and shore battery:


Sinking Ship marker:

Martello Tower:
Harbour Boom:


A couple of Merchantmen for scenario purposes:

Well that's that project completed, two fleets an a load of scenics, as an added bonus the whole lot stores very easily and doesn't take up much space, both factors being very important to me.

I am currently still working my way through my Epic Imperial Guard and hope to have them finished fairly soon.
