Soldurios Shout Out!

Ok people, this is something a bit different from my usual postings, I'd like to give a shout out to what I think is a fun little project that has the potential to be something awesome.

It's called Soldurios and its creator Lonnie Jones is tabletop gamer like you and me with a big vision and the sense to start small.
He is running a Kickstarter to fund the release and further developpement of a small set of 6mm miniatures that offer a glimpse of the different factions to come.

Here's a few pictures he's shared so far

The normal grunts

From left-to-right: ‘Mayanki; Generic Soldurian, Yakuzatek, Generic Soldurian, Generic Soldurian, Celtican, Generic Soldurian, Yakuzatek’.
And check out these bio/nano enhanced super soldiers

6mm Soldurios Nanotech Elite Fighters

I think you'll all agree with me that the detailing on these is superb.
There's loads more info, some background fluff and even talk of an accompanying rule set in the future on the kickstarter page and some more in depth discussion over on TWW Here.

So, if you like what you see, head on over to the kickstarter and help fund this project that, in my humble opinion, has the potential to grow into a grand 6mm space opera of, dare I say, epic proportions ;-)

Thanks for looking.

Call Out The Guards!

And yet more red martian troops.
This time its two units of imperial guards,

The melee unit armed with shield and spear

And a ranged unit armed with pavise and radium rifles

Here's a pic with the donor figure so you can all marvel at my converting skills ;-)

The left over pieces of the pikes were used to arm a unit of regular rifles,
hese's a sneek peek at that unit

More pics when they are decent and have some more paint on them.
Probably in a week or two as I'll be going camping with the kids next week so no painting then.

More Red Martians

I've finally managed to base all of my cephalods and I have started on my red martians.
All units are/will be based on  either 3x3 or 1.5 x3 cm 2mm thick MDF
Ok already! pictures or it didn't happen.
The Cephalods

The red martians

These are the first 2 units of swordsmen, they are a mixture of Rapier miniature codes SEA001, SEA002 and IND002.
I started with these as they didn't need much by way of conversions, just cut down the spears of the SEA002's and filed them flat and pointy so I could paint them as swords. I also filed down some of the feathered headdresses so I could paint them as helmets, all in all I'm quite happy with how they turned out.
Here's a piccie of everything so far

Thats it for now, if you liked this, stay tuned for more.
Next up will be a unit of Imperial guards armed with pole arms/spears (ASR001 no conversion), a unit of Imperial guards armed with rifles and pavises/shields (TRJ002 cut back the long spears and bent and filed them down to resemble a kind of musket) and a unit of regular riflemen(ASR001 and TRJ004 trimmed down and bent the bows to look like handguns or cut away the bows completely and rearmed with muskets made from the leftovers of the spears of TRJ002)
When these are finished I'm going to try to convert ASR005 Assyrian cavalry to Thoat mounted cavalry( oh boy, how do I keep getting myself into these things?)
