28mm Painted Hasslefree Grymm Walkers for 15mm Sci-Fi and......

...........Ian is giving away stuff to celebrate 500 posts and being 2 but not any brushes as they're mine!

These 28mm scale Hasslefree Minis Grymm (sci-fi dwarves) Walkers were bought and painted early this year to go with my 15mm sci-fi Colonial Marines as Dreadnoughts, nice models as you come to expect from the Hasslefree family.

I've added some 15mm figures to show scale........







15mm Rebel Minis figure...........

15mm Khurasan Exterminator model.......



.....and don't forget Ian is having a give away but stop saying you want the brushes as they're mine.......I need them....to see how the other half lives......so there!

  7. Very nicely painted figures and suit 15mm perfectly.

  8. Nice figs, and i'm liking your colour-scheme. They do rather suit the 15s too :)

  9. Armored dwarves look sort of like trashcans with limbs--which is exactly what I would expect!

  10. Ah Fran these work really well at that scale. What an excellent idea I so wish I had thought of it. Perfect mate absolutely perfect.

    1. Thanks for the kind words my friend.

    2. I really have found these quite inspirational. I MUCH prefer them to the GZG power armour. I shall get Skirmish out of the way but probably get a squad of these soon afterwards.

    3. They look the business, size wise at least.

    1. You don't need them mate, these are not the brushes you want!

  15. Those walkers look spot on for size and nicely painted too.

    Brushes aren't everything . . . . unless you're a fox . . . .

  16. Very cool. Nice thing about sci-fi and fantasy is you can mix and match scales for certain things.

  18. Impressive "guys"!
    with the 15mm figs, they look very dangerous.
    I like the blue that you've used for the "eyes".

  19. Nice to see the size of these compared to 15mm minis - they a fab little things and very well done!

    ReplyDelete
  20. they are very impressive and scale-down (up ?) well with your 15mms

    ReplyDelete
  21. Often thought of doing something similar if/when I eventually go towards sci-fi. Well done mate.

  22. I think you've got those brushes, in the bag.

    2. I saw Rayolla put a picture of brushes on his blog. Doesn't he know those are yours? Silly Ray.

  23. Wonderful work, Fran! These 28s do mix perfectly with 15mm. Ask Ray if he can pull that off with any of his historical figs!

  30. They're both cute and menacing at the same time.

    I'm not entering in this give away as I've won too much already. You're odds of winning have now increased!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nice repurpose, Fran! They look suitably heavy and menacing as 15mm hardsuits, walking tanks of destruction! Some numeric markings on the hull would add greatly to the effect, but I do like them very much as they are!

    1. You're right David but not good at that sort of detail.

  32. Nice work mate...at least your churning out something painted to show off. I'm working on a lot of things, but nothing has reached completion yet. See you at the game Saturday.

    Oh hang on, Postie mentioned something about you having to work and missing a second game on the trot. Is that true? Awwww I was looking forward to seeing your happy cherub-like face at the game....

    2. Ray's not going either and he agrees with me too!

    3. Neither of you are going! Looks like the rest of us will be having a rather quiet and civilised game for a change. I'd better dig out my cravat and smoking jacket...

    4. I spoke to Postie and he said he's doing a game of Cluedo because of your dice issues!

  34. I haven't seen these Grymm yet, and they work probably better in the 15mm realm than what they were intended for. Nice work, as usual.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Pretty spiffy, Fran! I like them even more now that read they are armored dwarves!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nice work on these, really smooth finish.

  38. Grymm Walkers? I like that name. May have to steal it for something else. Paint job look incredible as always Fran. Keep it flush.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Looking good Fran. Those actually match up quite well with the 15s. Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very nice! I think they work perfect as 15 mm dreadnoughts.

  41. Very good work Fran!

  42. Excellent! I wasn't wild about them as 28mm models but they look brilliant in a 15mm 'setting'. Well done my good man.

  47. Those little things are badass! They're actually "bigger" than I was expecting them to be, when posed next to that officer.

  48. It looks way better than anything that was in the Aliens: Colonial Marines video game.

  49. Nice models. Great idea to mix some scales but they fit the bill in an excellent way. Nice paint job.

  50. They are very nice, and perfect for the 15mm figures. Great idea!
