WIP: Afterlife 'Vanguard'...

...the 'drone' is almost finished - just a little more work on the lenses and some streaking and fading of the paintwork with oils to do.

WIP: 1/35 UNS 'Hopper' HPR719...

...although it won't be visible on the completed model I've painted the interior of the cockpit 'cover' and mounted it on the vehicle. I've also added the 'fuel' tanks although these need weathering.

WIP: Afterlife 'Vanguard'...

...the 'Goliath' and the trooper have been placed on a temporary base and final detailing is underway. I will make an 'urban' base for the figures and weather them once emplaced on the new base.

The 'drone' has had a couple of decals added (the unit numbers will be painted over) and will now have a bit of 'wear and tear' added.

WIP: 28mm Hasslefree Sci-fi trooper squad...

...making slow progress but progressing nevertheless!

WIP: Afterlife 'Vanguard'...

... working on the weapons. Still a little detail work to do and unfortunately the 'gatling' fell off it's painting mount and suffered a little damage to the end of one of the barrels. Not sure as yet how I will correct it.

WIP: Afterlife 'Vanguard'...

...I'm away from the desk for a few days but as I wasn't happy with the dark blue armour plating on the 'Goliath' I changed it before downing brushes. Weapons next...

WIP: Afterlife 'Vanguard'...

...a little more work on the 'Goliath' Mech and an almost complete (needs some unit and rank markings) trooper (from the first set) to accompany it. Not entirely sure about the 'ID' red against the blue but will see how it looks after a couple of filters and some weathering.

Bloody hell! Funded before...

...I could blog the news of it commencing! Heresy Miniatures' Kickstarter has already doubled it's funding goal in less than 24hrs. Congratulations Andy!! Sadly none of the miniatures on the KS are of interest to me personally but I'm delighted with it's success as it may mean a later KS for plastic (or resin - not fussy) Sci-fi Troopers!

WIP: 1/35 UNS 'Hopper' HPR719 ..

...slowly progressing with 'weathering'. A couple of 'dusty' filters and  a few 'chips 'n' scratches.

Finally got around... starting my Anvil Industry: 'Afterlife' Vanguard  (part two of the KS). I've actually started the UC 'Predator' Drone and the Republic 'Golaith' Assault Mech but as I checked Anvil's website for the correct nomenclature I realised that I've got a little confused about the ownership. I've painted the UC Drone in a camo scheme derived from the fatigues of the Republic Grenadiers' believing that the Drone was a Republic vehicle! Luckily I have two - one from the KS and a second courtesy of Joel from A.I. so one will be painted as a 'captured' vehicle and the other in a UC scheme (no idea what as yet).
Here's some pics of the Drone painted in the basic camo scheme (it has since been glossed and is awaiting suitable decals.

The 'Goliath' comes with the option of two heads - one with the armoured face shutters closed and one with them open revealing the pilot's helmet and visor. I'm painting both as they can easily be swapped about. Base colour and a little lining and edging so far...

...started weathering by adding a few scratches/chips etc. and a dusty oil paint filter.
