Hey all. I'm new here, but not new to collecting and painting miniatures. I've always liked boardgames with physical pieces and strategy. Before running into 40K in the early 90's, I used to design my own boardgames using clay figures and pizza boxes. I also remember playing Drakborgen (DungeonQuest) and some of my games were based on that. I remember Talisman being interesting too.
Onto the projects.
Starsword 700 is my 40k'ish project. I'm just having fun and being silly at this point. I'm thinking '28mm heroic' (i.e. 32mm tall humans or whatever), with the larger heads, minus the huge feet and trunk limbs.
I'm paraphrasing the Beakies and Old dreadnought here.
There's some stuff in my open 40k dir. Most (nearly all) of the miniatures were painted in the late 90's. Nowadays there are so many other competing activities, so I've only painted a few figures in the last decade. Some years ago I experimented a bit with making my own EPIC bases out of clay. I quite like the look of round 4 figure bases. I'm collecting 40K Eldar and EPIC Chaos, plus quite an amount of whatever looks neat. Probably not alone on that one.
StarGladius is the 1:72 scifi miniature project of mine. I wish there were more realistic 1:72 miniatures to go with my ZOIDS. StarGladius is based on:
StarGuard, a scifi miniature game from the 70's.
