Cosmetics "Train Case" good for paints and hobby stuff?

Hi All,

I was looking into picking up something like this:

Does anyone have experience with something like this?  I'd keep my paints in the trays, and tools at the bottom.  Do you think this would work?

Khurasan Iguana Vehicle seen on LAF...

Saw this over on Lead-Adventure Forum…

I know I've been waiting for this one for a while! Great to see it in resin.

My Spaceship Consoles are now available from Gamecraft Minis!

Hi everyone,

A while ago I showed off some Spaceship consoles that I had designed in 3D and had printed.  I kept trying to get around to actually making molds for them but never really did.

I was in contact with GameCraft Miniatures (  and after I sent the masters over to them Allen decided to offer them on his store.

He sent me a casting, and I gotta say, it is really clean and well cast!

I've painted up the small one so far:

And here they are on the Gamecraft Minis website:

And the pictures of the castings:

I'll be painting up the casting he sent me today, and I hope to do a couple of different themes to show what can be done with them.

GZG - UNSC/L Squad with a UNSC/H Atatachment

Finished my first squad before the reinforcements arrive:

I have another two squads (at least) and another couple of UNSC/H inbound... so I wanted to get a scheme down with the ones I already had 

As always, feedback is welcome!

Gruntz Profile Cards - Grandma, K'lik Alien Bounty Hunter, and 8-wheel MICV

K'Lik - Alien Bounty Hunter

The Mantids are a war-like alien species renown for their physical combat prowess...

K'Lik is a legendary bounty hunter that operates a KZ-460 Scout ship.  An extremely small spacecraft, not much bigger than a lifeboat, that is also capable of atmospheric flight it has an extra section used as a cryo-pod to transport his bounties "hassle-free"

K'Lik is from the Khurasan Miniatures Alien Bounty hunter set, and the KZ-460 is also from Khurasan and is the Alien Anti-Grav Light Scout Vehicle.

I really like the bounty hunter set, and this is one of my favorite figures.  I've always loved aliens based on preying mantis!

WIP: Space Pirates and UNSC/L

Working on my Crimson Hegemony (Rebel Minis Pan-galactic).  The one with a helemt has the helemt courtesy of CMG Arc Fleet.  I'll also be repainting the Drone from yellow to red.

And my first UNSC paint:

Still have to finish painting him.  I think I might do a blue/white camo scheme on the vehicles.

Grandma comes out to see what all the ruckus is about - Khurasan Miniatures

My wife decided to join me and paint a miniature, she did a great job for her first miniature!

It's always nice to have a civillian population (not for them I suppose) in the city when the forces fight, it's great for fog of war and some rulesets (The Department and 5150) actually uses them.

Painted - GZG 8-wheel MICV

Finished up with the tank commander and the decals:

I have another one of these, and a big gun version inbound, along with more of the GZG UNSC.  Haven't figured out how to paint the UNSC yet, but if you have any suggestions, please let me know!

Newest GZG NI Squad - With Converted Heads from GZG

Hi Everyone,

I had pictures of these guys up in my group shot, but the matte varnish acted a little funny (I think I put it on too thick) so I had to re-apply with my brush.  I use brush on varnish since I've had some problems with the spray variety.

Anyways, I've converted up three of the squad members with heads from GZG.  Two have NVG on, and the "SAW" gunner has the bald head with a cigar.

I'm also trying to paint more ethnicities in my force, to show a more diverse force.  I realized that I usually just paint the same skin tones, and since I enjoy painting faces that it would be fun to experiment.

My 200pt Gruntz Force Cards

I put together a 200 point force for a Gruntz game this weekend:

2x Commando Squads

2x Grav Van transports

Command (squad).  It's an abstract since it takes damage, but it's a squad of four figures.

And a spider drone to add some firepower.

Now I just need to put the scenario together.  I am thinking about putting a deck of primary and secondary objectives, and then my opponent and I each draw the cards.  Adds a bit of randomness to the game.  I might use the Tomorrow's War fog of war deck too.

If you guys have any suggestions, i'm happy to hear it!
