Start of a possible 15mm Post Apocalypse Project

From my grandfather I got a lot of railway buildings (some still in box and scale H0) and a lot of them could fit into a postapocalyptic world (Fallout 3 style). So I decided to build a small table.

Miniaturewise I'll go for Khurasan (as always), Ground Zero Games and Thescene.

Imagine these two burger/snack stands dust filled, with bullet holes, broken glass and washed out colours. The glass will be added after the paintjob.

Picture update - Bug horde and Felids, stuff

This is the Space Pals Bounty Hunter from Highlander Studios. I just love this minature and so I tried to make a better picture.

BUUGGGS! (never gets old). I painted 16 Khurasan bugs and added some old and some new Tyranid rippers plus a Dark Realm Skyths. I'm experimenting with picture manager software and the colour correction is working fine on some pics and bad on others.

Watching and reading too much "Power armour versus bugs" stuff, I'm assembling a bug horde plus power armoured troops.

These abore are my Felid power armour conversions. I bought three more so I have a full squad.

More soldiers for my "cat people" army.

Had these crystals lying around for a while and I'm quite satisfied with the result.
Althought the colours are a little bit "overdone", I present you an overview of my alien world table so far.

Brigade Games - 15mm Scifi models

I recently bought both packs of Brigade Games' new 15mm Scifi miniatures:

Pictures taken from the Brigade Games Hompage without permission. I finished one alien (first picture, on the far right) and I really enjoy painting this miniatures as they are gorgeous sculpts. At the moment I'm painting the middle on in the first picture in fleshy tones (I call him the "fatso rat"). I can honestly recommend buying those! Brigades fast delivery was, as always, a deligth.

Some more troops and a growing forest of alien flora

Finally I finished my fist Garn squad. Escpecially the skin was fun to paint, as drybrushing and a solid wash worked wonders. I still have 3 Garn left, but finally I can use them as a fireteam for AE Bounty Hunter or Tomorrow's War.
These are my favorite conversions in my whole collection. Battle robots from with sculpted backpacks, visors and broader hips to look like Starcraft marines and a firebat. The visors are a pain in the neck to sculpt, but I think it was worth it. Still I don't feel the urge to make more than 5 of those ;)

Space Pals from Highlanders Studios: You should buy one of those sets, because it's for a good cause and you get three of the best space opera characters ever. The fury carpet got an bionic eye(-patch).

The big ass alien skeleton pieces are from a cheap magazin that came with a big lion skeleton. But even its size didn't protect it from the hordes of bugs....
That's it so far with my alien forest. Some exotic nuts, some dried plants and aquarium stuff. More to come, because I'm fed up with alien worlds that have earth-like vegetation (reason: Lazy gamers).
These are 6mm Demonscape buildings that are really cheap (sold on evilbay), but work as 15mm generators and stuff as well.

The red fat guy and hi unpainted friends are VOR/VOID growler pups. You can buy them from Ral Partha for a nice price and they make great local alien creatures. Sizewise I think they are perfect! I'm not sure which colour I will use on the unpainted ones.

The turquoise/yellow miniatures are Hunter Khans from Critical Mass Games. I'm really satisfied with the colour scheme, although I'm not sure how well it's gonna work on those Khurasan Felids.
