Bolt Action Partisans

May 12th, 2015

Making some more progress with my Bolt Action Partisans, mainly painting the flesh tones.

Though my partisan band is suppose to be French, this one still looks a little too Soviet, probably because of the cap.

This model though looks like it will be fine for a French setting.

This though is my least favourite of the models. Not sure why, probably is the socks! Again maybe a little too Soviet in he look.

Maybe if the model looks more like Simone Segouin then, possibly I would like it more.

Using a borrowed helmet, this model would fit fine in Eastern Europe or in France.

Doctor Who in Lego

May 11th, 2015

Well what do we have here, the Doctor in Lego.

Oh and K9 and a TARDIS.

Okay so not a proper set (just yet), but for the forthcoming Lego Dimensions console game.

The game uses “real” Lego which are then “brought” into the game. There is a real mix of brands, for example the starter set has Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle (from The Lego Movie).

You can expand the game with packs and these have so far included figures from the Lego franchises such as Ninjago, but also Wonder Woman, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz and Back to the Future.

With the release of some instructions, we now know that there will also be an expansion pack for Doctor Who.

The copyright notice for Doctor Who is quite interesting as it includes details of Daleks and Cybermen.

From this I would ascertain that we will see Lego Daleks and Cybermen, very likely in the game, but could mean Lego Daleks if and when more Doctor Who Lego is released.  The BBC does not hold all the rights to all the Doctor Who monsters, therefore licensed products need to both licence Doctor Who from the BBC, but also need to licence Terry Nation (estate) for the Daleks.

In addition to Doctor Who we have also seen packs for Jurassic World, Scooby Doo, Portal and The Simpsons.

Still some work to do.

One of the Pinkerton Men

May 9th, 2015

Another one of the Wargames Foundry Old West figures I found. This is one of the Pinkerton Men from the OW9/1 Shootists set. I based the model on a two pence piece. I “flocked” the base with Citadel Sand and then gave the model a white undercoat using a Citadel Skull White spray can.

Using Chaos Black I then painted the model’s hat, shoes and pistol.

Sheriff McQuaige – The Old West

May 8th, 2015

Sheriff McQuaige is part of the OW11/6 Town Toughs & Staunch Defenders pack. As the Sheriff is wearing a suit, as well as carrying a shotgun, he could be used in Victorian Science Fiction scenarios. He certainly could be walking the streets of London as well as the dusty tracks of the old west.
