28mm Painted Ironclad Miniatures Tunnelling Machines of Terror.......

......well you wouldn't want one appearing in the lawn, behind you?

Some 28mm resin miniatures from Ironclad Miniatures for a possible, haven't decided, maybe never but I have a lot of miniatures painted Back of Beyond, Victorian Sci-Fi etc...project!

Added a 28mm Copplestone figure for some idea of scale............

  5. Those are pretty awesome, wouldn't mind having one or two for work in the garden. I'd probably need a larger garden though. An underground garden.

  6. This is sixteen shades of cool and I want one to go with my Reaper Chronoscope figures. You should do a VSF project as there are some killer sculpts out there for it.

  7. Giant moles you have there! I would suggest a cat... a big one!

  11. That's so COOL! I wouldn't mind seeing one emerge.. but not on my lawn. You're right.

  12. Very nice job Fran.
    I have had a look at these a couple of times, and for some reason, they seem a tad small for 28mm scale? Dunno maybe just me... I just envisaged something bigger...

    1. I know what you mean as some of them are borderline but the price is very good!

    1. You guys are funny. I don't know what a tut is, but I'm thinking if Ray's calling you that, it's not a nice word.

    2. To you it would be a tsk!

  14. Rather handy for trench warfare - no pesky machine guns to worry about when you come up in the enemy's trench!

  15. Those are nice, look much better in their own feature than the blurb in the painting challange too!

  16. Very nice. I deal for a game of 7TV, I should think.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well even if you don't use them in a game they still look awesome and very dangerous to anyone caught in their path.

  18. Very nice Fran and some super clean painting!

  21. Those are great. Set dressing at it's best

  22. Oh those are neat. Great job painting them up. Can't wait to see what gaming shenanigans you use them in.

  23. Fantastic! I love the effect you got on these.

    The gun toting sentry was hear to exclaim, "That's a helluva mole problem you got there!"

  24. Awesome job, thinking of ninja turtles too

  25. great work, I think my Scotties would still have a go at them if they popped up in my garden
    Peace James

  26. Smashing work, General. I was thinking about picking up one of these for Doctor Maton's Mechanickal Forces, and this paint job is tilting me ever closer to the brink of actual purchase. Might have to wait for Historicon, though.

    1. Not too excessive a price either for what you get.

  27. Those things are brilliant Francis. I particularly like the ones emerging from the ground. Very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  28. What I like about them is there is no scale! By that you could use them as 15mm or 28mm. Imagine Franonian troops leaping forth in the great and inevitable victory over Rayonia! At 15mm you would be able to get armoured cars at the least inside! Just a thought, not a suggestion.

  29. Looking real sweet! Nice clean brushwork and great choice of colour on the wooden Panels. The ones that are coming out of the ground could use a few scratches in their metal, but that is only a matter of taste here.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow - those look great! Like a good Scifi movie! Best, Dean

    ReplyDelete
  31. great stuff! certainly could be used for Victorian sci-fi and even general sci-fi.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hah, these are ace! Always good to have random minis that you have no use for.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Splendid, Fran! I'm sure one of those HAS been at work on my back lawn. Badgers....pah! ....I'm showing my wife your contraption, which I am sure is to blame!

  34. Very nice work Francis, now you have me worried as to what I will be painting :)

  46. Great stuff Fran, they do look fearsome!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hell of a nice job Fran! But erm, they do look a bit new and shiny, specially the ones coming out of the lawn... perhaps a chance to try out some of those new fancy-smancy pigment powders? No offence by the way: they are REALLY cool!

    Cheers Sander

  48. They look great and look very large against the 28mm figure but look huge with a 15mm instead.

  49. As a surprise feature, they could surface for a pint of beer ,next to your ice cold beer saloon, in a Western scenario.

  50. You're right, I don't want this showing up in my yard. Great job, Fran!
