Gruntz - 15mm Sci-fi Project (10) - More Vehicles & Aliens

Well, I have finally managed to get back to the brushes after about 2 months of doing next to nothing painting wise.

I'm rushing through a few jobs at the moment trying to clear my desk for a fresh start, first up is the last of my Sci-fi vehicles, this is really just an exercise in using up some of the junk I have stolen from the kids or accumulated in my bits box.

First up some oddities that started life in my children's toybox.

This old hovercraft was actually mine as a nipper (before being passed to my younger brother and then my son) so its knocking on a bit now, I can definitely say I have had my monies worth from this toy:






Some sort of Dinosaur from the boys huge collection, this one looked the most alien like and the scale seemed to work too:



A large bug from my daughters "The Good Dinosaur" stuff, makes for an impressively sized alien bug:




Finally, my mate made and cast up his own Star trek type shuttles and gave me a spare one, I added a few bits of stuff from the bits pile to differentiate it, and it will now serve as my colonial patrol shuttle:









Back to WW2 next time as I have just about finished off the buildings, woods etc that I was lacking.

Lords & Lands and Pocketquest - Updates

Apologies for the lack of posts of late, all my projects seemed to have stalled recently, although I am now beginning to move forward again on a couple of them and will hopefully be posting semi-regularly again soon.

In the meantime, I have finally gotten round to updating the Pocketquest rules and I have uploaded the most recent version of the Lords & Lands Army lists and Points Calculator as received from Craig. They can all be found here:

POCKETQUEST

LORDS & LANDS ARMY LISTS

LORDS & LANDS POINTS CALCULATOR

And on there respective pages here:

Pocketquest Page

Lords & Lands Page

and for good measure they are also on the Resources page.

Nearly finished both by 15mm WW2 scenery and Germans and my 15mm Sci-fi colony, before moving onto the remaining Pocketquest heroes and bad guys I have to base and paint and a few bonus Epic Imperial Guard miniatures I have recently acquired.
