    Miniatures pt49 – Executioners 

    Three executioners from the Fantasy HOT line of Alternative Armies. Simple, older sculpt designs, but fun nonetheless.

    Miniatures pt48 – Men at arms 

    I wanted to complement my regular medieval troops with more figures, so here come the Dismounted men-at-arms in kettle helms, mixed weapons from the 13th century range of the Khurasan Miniatures historicals.

    I went with an olive green cloth and a simple red and white horizontal stripes on the shield.

    Miniatures pt47 – The Freakshow 

    Continuing on some eligible for Five Parsecs, either as crewmen or as enemies, here’s some Ral Partha Mercenaries, “The Freakshow” from their Critical Mass Range.

    These were from the first Critical Mass figures I’ve ordered and I reached the wrong conclusion as to their scale. The range is closer to true 15mm rather than 1:100, just some of them are bigger than average and fit well with my Alternative Armies minis. But the Bounty Hunter and the Bug-eyed alien are clearly smaller – and this is the main size of the range.

    I didn’t paint the tailed alien as I have decisions to make as to their basing. Either go with a cavalry base, or do some cutting/bending. So here are four out of five of the mercs.

    Miniatures pt46 – More Xenos 

    So, I wanted a set of 20 or more xenos for Five Parsecs: Bug Hunt. I decided to go ahead with the Vanguard Miniatures Incisors from the Entomorph range.

    I wanted a very quick paint job, so after sketch prime, I followed with beige drybrush for the carapace, and a purple wash. I think I did another step in between that I might be forgetting right now.

    The Vanguard sculpts are very sharp. I painted all 24 bugs of the set, but since its six variants, I’m presenting those six here.

    Miniatures pt45 – Gray Alien Thralls 

    Here’s my Gray Alien Thralls from the Hordes of the Future range (HOF) from Alternative Armies.

    Really like the sculpts. Simple and easy to paint. I think they’re gonna fit in my Five Parsecs from Home games perfectly.

    Miniatures pt44 – Agents 

    Here you can see some Battle Valor miniatures I got from the US. It’s a Frigian Foot Captain, a Frigian Assassin and a Legian Captain.

    Battle Valor is on the bulkier side of 15mm minis, so they won’t fit with true 15mm scale, but they’re okay next to my Demonworld heroic 15mm.

    My wash came a bit stronger and darker, but it gave them a nice look. They just need ample light to show it.
