Right as promised I'm back with a bunch of pics.

First up is the finished vehicle: a Warthog from Antenociti's Workshop.



I got it to go with the Infinity models that I'm using for Flying Lead but I think it would work well for other games, might even use it for Pulp City as something the Mysterious Man has created for his minions to travel in, we will see.

As for the horny monster, get your minds out of the gutter people, I'm talking about this guy:



Finally finished him (although I have realised that I forgot to add static grass to the base but that will be soon remedied). And just in time for Tuesday's D&D session >:)

I've also been starting a fair few minis as I said yesterday, here are a lovely group of ladies who are hopefully being finished soon:



L-R we have 2 models from Piazo's Ptolus range that are destined for the D&D campaign, (though thet're for the adventure after the one I'm running now), and 3 models for Malfaux.

Dr Warlock has mentioned on his blog that his Malifaux mini's seem to take longer to paint than the PC ones and I can definitely agree with that. The models are great but they do seem to take that bit longer to paint up, they seem more finikity and it takes that bit longer to get them finished. Still I will keep soldiering on.

As for my Pulp City stuff there's quite a bit on the go:



June Summers is the closest to completion, she just need a bit of attention to her base and right eye and she's done.



Jade Hawk's the next closest, an absolute joy to paint I'm really happy with the way she's turning out. She only took around 1 day to get her to this point and now I just need to finish the base to complete her.



These four are at least part way to completion, Ace of Wraiths of the left is coming along very nicely, (one of these day's I'll actually paint an ACW Union army and not just use the colour scheme for other projects...no really I will...probably :)



Finally we have the silhouette brigade here that I just need to start, I think Kitty Cheshire (2nd from left) will be the next as I have a pretty good idea what I want to do with her.

I've also made up some Pixel tokens for Vector (2nd from right) to call on in battle:



They're made from 2mm Foamed PVC, something I found on Antenociti's Workshop (I believe he used it for a lot of the buildings on his Salute table this year), it is to Plasticard what Foamcore is to cereal packet card and the 2mm stuff is exactly the right size to fit the slots in PC bases hence the tabs I added to the bottom of each pixel, (I slightly screwed up the Mega Pixel as you can see, but it was an easy fix and a bit of greenstuff will hide the join), now I just need to pick up some bases to put them on.

Other than these I still have to figure out Dr Red's base as well as Skyline's, finish Virus and I still have a complete block on how to paint Apebot, I think I just have to strip off what I've done and start again from scratch unfortunately.

I thought it would be nice to put all my completed PC min's together to show what I've got so far:

First up the Villains


Next the Heroes/Villains


And finally the Hero(es)


Another reason why I want to get Jade Hawk and AoW painted, poor old Solar's feeling a little lonely fighting the good fight on his own, and Howler and Chimp Chi need their leader to turn up soon as well.

I think my next PC buy will need to be from the Heavy Metal group, not sure who yet, will make a decision soon though.

Anyway, just one more thing to show you this time, and that's the Malifaux building I was working on:



Just need to paint this sucker up and it's ready to go, I've also worked out a plan for the next building I want to make to go with this as well as a plan for the board I want to put them on, but more on that next time I think.

Right, I've rambled on far longer than I'd originally intended so I'll stop wasting your time now.

So until next time, stay safe.

Any chance of a mini tutorial on how you made your pixels?

Not a problem, I used a piece of squared paper (the type where the squares are 5mm) and then got a copy of the pixels card from the forum (my box was missing their card) and with a ruler and mechanical pencil copied the shape of the pixels using the rule that the shorter lines were equal to 1/2 a square and normal lines were 1 square in length (doubling or tripling were it looked right).

Then I cut the pixels out and taped them to the foamed PVC and used them as templates to cut round, the PVC cuts a lot easier than it looks as long as you use a sharp blade. For the smaller fiddly bits I used a scalpel, but for the most part just a regular stanley knife did the job perfectly.

Forgot to mention, when finished the smaller pixels are about the same height as the Grimm Elder I got with my last PC order.
