28mm Painted Pig Iron Miniatures Ferals.

................my  Tusken Raiders out of the desert wasteland, also known as the Bell's Palsy Bastards.

Painted these up in the first days of my Bell's Palsy (eye not moving and constantly watering but that's me being angry and stupid) and have never been that happy with the paint job, a bit too basic but looking at the pictures today they're not that bad, this is the complete range of poses, they're not bad sculpts at all but could do with some sitting and driving figures added to the range (hint, hint to the designer over at Pig Iron)), there are 19 figures painted (should be 20 but found  the on I had dropped and then drop kicked later and repainted the bare metal bits on him) so far and I have painted light and heavy dreadnoughts to be added plus vehicles all in a similar paint scheme.

Have added a scale picture to just to give an idead of scale with other figures.

1st group.




L to R, 28mm Copplestone Castings and Hasslefree Miniatures.

2nd Group.

    Get back in there and bleach bone them wraps, and you missed some of the eye pieces and re-breathers too!
    Other than that, these look fine.

  2. Ah, I really like them (minis & paintjob). Have some of these waiting for me as well. Started painting PI Heavy Infantry just yesterday.

    How did you paint the robes? Devlan Mud on a layer of White or Bleached Bone?

  4. Hey Picaso (think about it) these models don't look too shabby my friend. Nice work as always. How do you find the time to get so much painted? Do you and Ray get any work done at all?

  5. @Whiteface: Vallejo Desert Yellow, followed by a thinned down windsor and newton peat brown and lightly drybrushed with desert yellow again.
    @Brother Joseph: I have this terrible phobia of being unable to go back to figures I've already done:D

  7. If this is the basic painting for you mate...then I simply don't agree with you. They are simply fantastic (even though I am not aware of these ranges)...

  8. I think they look great. If that's how you can paint with only one eye working well, wow.

  10. Cnaib Lusra!

    The blood on that Sickle-Axe is awesome! It comes out best in a close-up of number 2 from the top, the guy next to the standard-bearer looking thing. It has got blood on both ends with a liquid on steel effect. Or in number 5 too, look at that.

  22. did I just saw a predator among the tusken raiders?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think they look great, simple but not in the unfinished sense. The red and sand is a very strong combination and the dirty metal fits too. I'm guessing you worked over a dark undercoat, and if so, here's a case where a light colour on top came out very well.

  26. i agree with zombie Tuskan warriors are misunderstood. Theres a Jedi Tuskan in a comic, dont remember what happened to him.

  27. Nice collection. Is that predator female or just well pecked?
