Urian, Spartan Warrior

I decided to challenge myself by entering Michael Mordor‘s monthly Reaper miniature painting contest for January. It’s great motivation to try new things rather than settle into what’s comfortable. Just settled on a @reapermini for @Goblins_Mordor's January #mordorpaint competition. Now I just have to paint it! Taking part more to challenge myself to improve than from…

Jynx

Another from Hasslefree Miniatures, Jynx is a fun sculpt that could easily fit in as a spellcaster in a modern fantasy setting or as a metahuman in a superhero setting. I’m looking forward to seeing her used as an exciting character in Starfinder. I experimented with the base this time around – kneadatite in rough waves…

Hive Devastator

In my search for budget friendly spacecraft miniatures I came across Studio Bergstrom. They have a wide variety of spacecraft miniatures – some clearly inspired by popular franchises and others original creations. One of the miniatures I ordered from them was the Hive Devastator which, of course, I thought would be a great starship for…

Seth Fighter

I wanted to support smaller spacecraft in my Starfinder campaign and, luckily,  Studio Bergstrom has a great selection of them at very reasonable prices. The Seth Fighter is a very tiny miniature but variety is the spice of life… Personally, I’d find it strange to run Starfinder without ships of this scale. You get an…

Garn Warrior

I plan to use the Garn Warriors from Khurasan Miniatures as Vesk in the Starfinder. I didn’t completely assemble this one – there’s suppose to be a hose running from the ammo container on it’s belt to the weapon – but I’m still pleased with how this test model turned out. I’ll be more adventurous with…

Widow

Hasslefree Miniatures‘ Widow reminds me of Samatha Carter from Star Gate SG1. She’s dressed for adventure, is well armed, and has the tech angle covered. Ideally, I should have painted eyes on this miniature but fortunately the sculpt is such that that detail is obscured. I was very pleased with how this paint job turned out and am looking forward…

Brooke

Hasslefree Miniatures’ Brooke miniature reminds me of River Tam from Firefly/Serenity. She looks ready to leap into action and kick some butt. I was pleased with how this paint job turned out but it was clear that I really should have painted the eyes. I have to get over my hesitation to even try. I’m also not happy with…

Ridley Darkedge

I have been using the Ridley Darkedge miniature from Reaper’s Dark Heaven Legends line for a nonplayer character of some significance in  my current Broken Covenant campaign and I got impatient to paint it for an upcoming scene. It’s a metal miniature so it had to be primed first but the spray on primer again came out clumpy and uneven. This is when…

Khurasan Stikks, First Batch

A goal for my upcoming Science Fantasy game is to have a decent array of custom playable races…easier said than done with miniatures unless the custom races amount to space elves, space goblins, and so on. I think insectoids are interesting but it was challenging to find a supply of quality insectoid miniatures at a…
