28mm Painted Victorian Sci-Fi Tanks and Armoured Cars, adding to the Great Painters collection and.......

.....pimping Edwin!

Some nice pieces of resin and metal from Ironclad Miniatures for the Victorian (Steampunk and Pulp also) warfare shenanigans, two different forces............

28mm Copplestone figure for scale purposes........















Curt "Norse God" Campbell over at Analogue Hobbies has painted me a little piece of wargaming joy for my collection for something I did for him a while back and I've got to say it's cracking!



.........and Edwin over at Thoughts of a Depressive Diplomatist is having a competition and giving away books (which he also sells) but no picking the book on the Khyber Rifles as that's going to be mine!

  5. Very nice stuff! I like steampunk. The crew from Analouge Hobbies looks great. That is intended an eye catcher in your collection.

  10. Nice work Fran, are they recent paints or are they from when we had a job we enjoyed?

  19. Great looking AFVs. I really love the steampunk style models and I love what you've done with them.

  20. Great looking vehicles. Enjoy putting them into the field.

  21. General! Your attack tactics are impeccable: You drive full force into the face of the enemy with hellashish loud armor garbed in garish blue and green. Hail Franonia!

    ReplyDelete
  22. There's so much cross-over between VSF, Steampunk and Pulp, it confuses me. Nicely painted Fran!

    I did see that posted on Curt's page and think they are most excellent.

    1. Technically all the same to me, figures can cross over for some of them but I'm probably wrong.

    2. You probably are you silly man person.

  23. Love the miniatures Fran. One of that was train, looks so classy. So Franonia is all set, are you helping Obama he would love an additional hand to handle Syria.

  24. I am so looking forward to seeing the Ray play with these in Posties Shed! (Ok that might not actually ever happen, a nice chap young Ray but not his cup of tea I would think . Still his loss). Thanks for putting the copplestone in for scale it makes it easier to judge the size of them. As always nicely painted.

    Best of luck with that book. I shall pop over to the blog in question and comment to that effect.

  28. Lovely paintjob on those steam powered ironclads.

  29. They look real cool Fran , but I keep thinking I could probably scratchbuild something like that, for cheaper, if only I could get motivated...

  30. Great stuff Fran. Like the windows.

    Those figs that Curt did are crazy - nice work there.

  31. Very unique vehicles that you've painted up perfectly.

  32. Steampunk! You are going to tempt me to get into yet another new subject after looking at those beauties.

  34. Fran, those tanks are the sh*t! I really like the brass bracing on the gatling gun barrels. I'm thinking I need a few of these as additions to my Quar collection. Dashing over to Ironclad now...

    ReplyDelete
  35. These models are very nice, and your painting work is perfect for them; "retro", I think.

    Very nice "panzers"!!!

  36. You have got the Steampunk bug haven't you there Fran and the results are stunning

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've got a few of those tanks myself. Only one has been painted so far... but another one is on the warmup track!

    1. I love this set! Your steampunk collection just gets better and better. Like Mr. Z, I'm begging to see this out on a tabletop one day. I have no idea quite what it'll look like but COOL is my guess.

  40. I truly love that green coloring... and wow those navy guys have such mean looking faces!! Lucky you, Fran, swapping talent.

  41. I like when you do steampunk. It came out great.

  42. Nice post, great blog, following :)

  43. Man, you'd need a ton of firepower to puncture through that skin.

    Though, you'd think they'd cover the smoke/steamstack a bit better. One unlucky grenade and...
