A Loooong Sunday.

Welcome to Inso's World on an extra long Sunday. The clocks went back last night so I have had an extra hour to potter about today (there is no way I could stay in bed for an extra hour). It has meant that I have been able to more or less finish the space cowboy commission (until I discovered that he has a whip I didn't know about!!!!). I just have a little smoothing and the base to sort and he's all done (well... apart from the blessed whip!). As I have said before, I can't show pix but I am happy that he is NEARLY there.

So... apart from that, what have I been up to this week?

Well, I have finished converting the honour guard for Mekon:

It is not the best pic in the world but it is the first one that shows the added bits 'in the green'. I also chose to push a ball bearing into the front of each of them just to add a bit of extra something... they are the supreme commander's body guard after all.

In addition to the Visitors, I have also started to convert a lizard man:

He is converted from this character: LINK :

I will be bulking things up and changing the pose a little but hopefully, he'll look pretty cool when he's finished.

I got the miniature above from Hasslefree Miniatures this week; along with a couple of Grymn, some aliens and a big steam-punk chap. In addition to those, my order from Miniature Heroes arrived so I have a nice selection of speciality models to add to my visitor force... plus some other cool bits and bobs.

In other news, Henry has really begun to enjoy the outside world and has worked out how to get into next door's garden... but not how to get back! It is funny trying to fish him over the fence when he is having a big old panic about being stuck... NOT!

Sheesh! If it isn't children, it's pets that cause problems.

I almost forgot my little sculpt for the day nursery:

(it has a bicycle light inside it).

See you from the bunker!

Do you see the size of those probes !?!?!?!?!?!? :-O

Inso said...

They are more psychic amplifiers than probes... the slave race carries the probes :)

Love the 'Hamlet' conversion!

Inso said...

Still very WIP... I am deciding whether to give it wings.

Mr Teufel said...

If you want my input, I vote against wings. If he needs to fly, perhaps a jet pack?

Inso said...

I was thinking a jet-pack with fixed wings (not mechanical/natural flapping wings).

Nice work :-)
