Space Tommy

Space Tommy Sergeant

Needs a bit of basing this fellow.  Quickly painted up 40 of the Warzone plastic Imperials last weekend.  Painted up for a game of Space Fag at the club.  I won.  Does that make me a loser, also?

  • Tamiya Spray Red Brown (Red Leather?) as undercoat and base coat 
  • Various Vallejo browns in use (top tip:  don't bother if using dip as final coat before dullcoating).
  • Snakebite Leather on the trim of the knees. 
  • Privateer Press Bloodstone on the bolt-gun knock off. 
  • Vallejo Steel overbrushed on the metals.  
  • Mecharium Red on the shoulder pad
  • Russian uniform green on the other.
  • Army Painter strong tone (middle strength) over the top.
  • Dullcote

Gathering dust

Many a miniatures wargamer would empathise with me when I say that I have a lot of miniatures in disuse.  It's so common a complaint, it has spawned blogs that tally purchases and paint jobs.. bloggers publically flagelating themselves if they overspend for a particular month.

Myself?  I'm under no illusions.  I will always buy more miniatures than I will ever paint.  And I will likely never sell the ones that I don't.

Photography is not my hobby.  I couldn't give a mega**** about a megapixel, so I hope you enjoy my blurry, unfocused pics of my blobby paint jobs!

Bon Ape Tit.
