2012 Already?

Boy, it's been a long time since I posted anything here! Here are some old Rakham metals that I painted for fun.

In Treue fest!

Today I finished up my Bavarian troops!

They can be seen wearing Raupenhelms (Caterpillar Helmet).

These were replaced by the Prussian style Pickelhauben by 1889. I figure why be too anxious to follow all the ways of the scheiss Preisen (shite Proosians)? Plus, I got them cheap. The figures are from Wargames Foundry. The molds must be getting old because the casting wasn't that great. Their left hands look like they were put through a meat grinder. Painted up well enough though.

Gott mit uns!

Hey there. Just finished some Prussian line infantry. There are more to do. What else is new? Almost done with my Bavarians.

Got mittens?

Machinegun Special

Got the German machineguns done up! I think I'll keep the bases simple for these.

Dismounted Cavalry

Got some more pictures.

Here are two units of cavalry for my German forces. The miniatures are from Foundry Miniatures and while I have mounted hussars, I'm still looking for affordable mounted dragoons (it would cost me close to $90 to get nine from FM, ouch).

5th (Pomeranian) Hussars "Prince Blücher of Wahlstatt"

Before painting the hussars, I'd picked the colors on a whim. Then I found out which regiment they belonged to. Turns out, as of 1889, the regimental commander is none other than Edward VII, Prince of Wales. Talk about awkward if they ever end up fighting any British.

Piranha Boy

Here we have Piranha Boy from Four A Miniatures smiling for the camera. Check out where you can find interesting stuff like devil fish and goblins sculpted by Kev Adams. Plus, Mr. Coleman is a swell guy.

Piranha Boy can be found in and around the marshy canals of Venice Beach. He's a friendly mutant and has never intentionally eaten anyone. You can hire him as a guide and tracker. His uncanny ability to track in water has its obvious advantages.

Some believe that he's a mutant piranha unlike the Sea Monkeys found along the coastal ruins and are clearly mutant humans adapted to aquatic life.

Mars Moves to Defend

More minis!

This time we have some Canal Martians for Space 1889 from RAFM. Got to push those pesky human colonialists off of Mars. The shield gunners are my favorite.


Shield Gunners;

More to come.
