15mm Dropship and crew

Troopship for my 15mm sci fi  army's  made from a Matchbox "Cloud Chopper" toy

Missile pods added from my kitbashing bit box

Rear gunners window was painted o and 2 large Gatling type guns added.  Not sure if I like them or not so they may get switched out at some point.

The ramp comes down so I added and interior with seating and a door to the flight decks.  the bits and bobs were made from plastic card and the like

Some troops disembark

Flight crew checks an engine as a small walker comes down the ramp

The other side

The model itself is pretty straight forward, I just removed the helicopter blades and addled the weapons and a radar dish to the top using a flight stand and a BB.

some matchbox aircraft

The Roto warrior  a great base aircraft

love the four engines will make a great space fighter

Love this one but the cockpit is to small so I am trying to figure out what vehicle i will cannibalize for parts to add a new front

Will work great for pulp gaming

and another low tech chopper

Converted areopod

Finished paint job!

Just added some Graphics and detail

I started by using the base of the areo pod vehicle and adding some tracks removed from 2 other vehicle , giving me a new planetary explore.  paint job is not done yet but a great vehicle

GZG figure for scale
Original vehicle

Reworking some matchbox/Hot wheel vehicles

I like using matchbox vehicles for my 15mm  for the most part they fit well and they are pretty inexpensive

Older snowcat That Has been on the bench for a bit,  might just get it done.

Some for post apocalyptic groups

Not sure what to do with them

Even a steampunk one

And one for the 28mm (figure just for scale)

My newest hobby

This is my new dog Dylan 3 year old rescue dog, we got together in September and she is just the greatest !! so happy we found each other.

Couple of new figures built and painted.

Welcome to the feast

Finished and few  of my WIP (see last post)

1st up My Falcon handler

I used the same (reaper rioter figure) for 2 of these My falcon handler  had a GW head added as a well as the Falcon arm and the stuffed red bird on the rope

My archer  Bundle up for Frostgrave adventures.  A barbarian head from  GW bits was added and the cowl was made with putty    The Arms came from a GW empire archer and re worked into this figure.  The Quiver was cut from a bones Arthurian archer and equipment from the bit box

 The feast is on!  My tavern keeper brings in the roast pig with veggies to the hungry warband on their return from Frostgrave.  the Figure started as an Reaper Innkeeper bones figure.  I cut away the arms and put a roast pig platter onto the body, I then sculpted on a new set of arms holding the platter.

i liked the way he turned out

here is a nice shot showing the trouble I had painting the pants. The day after painting the pants I found that all the paint cracked.  I thought it ruined but then I kind of liked the textured look I kept it.  What do you think?
