Halfling Snipers... plus others.

Seeing as photobucket killed my last thread, I thought I'd start a new one that wasn't corrupted by placeholders.

It was always my intention to include some Halfling/Ratling snipers in my Squat army but I wanted plastic or resin... and to be honest, the new Ratling snipers looked a bit too like mini Catachans for my taste so it was obvious that I'd have to sculpt my own.

As a result... that's what I did and I ended up with these:

When I posted them, a few people suggested that I should get them cast... so I did:

Once I get around to it... and life gives me a bit of a break... they should be available to purchase from here:

So if you are interested... keep an eye on it :)

Depending on paint scheme, these could pass for mini-wookies!

Cracking figs.
All I have to do is think of something to use them in.
God, I might have to start playing something weird now. :evil:

I have been painting a set and have nearly finished. Just have to highlight the leaves and sort out the bases now :) :

Shadow Wars allows the Astra Militarum (humans) to take sniper weapons as a specialist so my plan is to use one for that. I may have a couple to sell depending on how they are sold :D with luck...

:) glad you like them.

Here they are all finished:

... and here are one or two more (well... 49 sets or 245 individual snipers):

Should be up for sale soon... depending on a few bits and bobs arriving (labels and a light-box so I can take some nice pictures).

I have got some news if you want to get hold of some of these...

Halfling Snipers: https://insoemporium.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... -sale.html
Exo Armour Legs: https://insoemporium.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... -sale.html

It's a clunky way of doing things but it's a start :)

Someone mentioned mini Wookies (Ork 56) but I didn't want to be a copy-cat so I made something different :) :

Seeing as sales have dried up, it makes sense to do something else with them :)

In other news, I have actually started painting my Squat army... I know... crazy talk :D !

Anyway, here's a rough base-coat on my three Berserkers (count as Ministorum Priests):

Next will be a tidy up, wash and highlight... but I'll be doing that one at a time (so I can see finished progress :) ).
