Another two...

'Port Reliant Mercenaries'. I've rushed the prep of these a bit in my hurry to paint them. Missed some mould lines etc. but I'll make a better job of the next set (and the weapons need to be darker)

...a second Secret Weapon 6x6 Rapid Assault Vehicle (SW have released a second edition of the vehicle with seperate wheels and exhaust but this is one of the originals with the exhaust removed to accomodate some extra stowage - panniers from SW too)
here in it's basic camo

and here with a first oil wash (Paynes Grey) and a couple of heresy troopers and a Defiance Games Marine

I had to get me some of these...

...after seeing the wonderful PJ 'Spacejacker' did with them (and one or two that aren't from the set I've quoted). They are ACP's  15mm 'Port Reliant Mercs' and are quite simply stunning! It must be said though that as they are CAD designed they do suffer from print lines on certain areas but I've not let that bother me....
I've painted one so far (couldn't resist even though I've plenty of other stuff I should be getting on with) - my favourite, a heavy weapons specialist

Khurasan 15mm 'Doe' Gunship...

...lightly weathered and finished and with Khurasan's 'Red Faction' Troopers for scale.

WIP: Khurasan 15mm 'Doe' Gunship... having its undercarriage painted and the troops are nearly ready to board.

close-ups of the troopers (not happy with the boots and forgot to paint the binocs!)

WIP: Khurasan 15mm 'Doe' Gunship...

..has only had a little work since the last update but I have been painting some a few of Khurasan's 'Red Faction' infantry to photograph alongside the gunship. Here's a WIP pic

...and now it's finished!

It doesn't look a great deal different than the photos below so here's a couple just for an idea of size and scale

Been working on this for a while...

...for Duncan. Terrible resin casting of a 1/48 'Aliens' APC from Frontier Models which required a lot of correcting hence the less than 'canon' look to the wheel arches etc. Still some detail work to do and the 'dirt' in the wheel bays needs to be a little lighter but it's getting there

WIP: Khurasan 15mm 'Doe' Gunship...

...working on enhancing the detail by 'lining' and 'edging'

WIP: Khurasan 15mm 'Doe' Gunship..

here's the parts 'breakdown' - there are 'in-flight' and 'landed' option parts

it all goes together very smoothly with just a few adjustments (trimming/filing) needed. A tip; fit the missile pods to the wings before attaching to the hull and booms. The missile pod attachments are slightly different - the ones with the slightly raised area at the rear fit on the outer wings with the raised area butting up against the 'spur' on the rear of the wing.

nice 'engine' detail
