Horrid Mini Line From Ravenstar Studios

I picked up a hover tank that I've been wanting for a while from Ravenstar Studios along with some bio-aliens called "Horrids". They are really well sculpted and his pictures really do not show the amount of details that they have. Below is the first one that I finished, a couple of small pits in the tentacles needed some simple green stuff to address. One area on the rump also needed a patch, but was pretty easy to do.

Colors Used:
  • Krylon Camo flat black (base)
  • GW mechrite red
  • Folkart Rouge Brilliant Metallique (for highlights)
  • generic yellow and black for eyes
  • GW snakebite leather for teeth
  • generic purple (added white for highlights)
  • GW red wash (I forget the name)
Really nice, sinister looking mini. I picked up a couple other of smaller troops too.

Clearhorizon Miniatures' SparrowHawk-Class Light Assault VTOL (15mm)

I actually have started painting again, first mini was Clearhorizon Miniatures' SparrowHawk-Class Light Assault VTOL - very nice looking craft.

Colors Used:
  • Krylon Camo flat black (base)
  • Tamiya flat green (added white for highlights)
  • GW mechrite red for the stripes (added white again for highlights)
  • generic dark blue with grey and white highlights for the windshields
Decals are from GW Space Wolves and the number is from Hasslefree Miniatures. A couple of doses of flat coat, gloss put on the windshield.

I also picked up some small magnets so the "rotors" can be repositioned. I picked up some riders and other infantry that I hope to start painting soon.
