28mm Pulp Nazis on Dinosaurs

Here's some images of some Nazis with dinosaurs for alternate history/ wierd war two or pulp games.  The miniatures are manufactured by Eureka Miniatures. In case regular old Nazis weren't bad enough, these are mounted on dinosaurs complete with bombs and a 37mm cannon!

These were a lot of fun to paint. Two of my favorite periods are WWII and Pulp, so this was like the best of both worlds. I went with more tropical/ warm weather uniforms and equipment for the Germans except for the ones mounted on the flying dinosaurs, which have uniforms inspired more by Luftwaffe uniforms. So they are a mix of Africa Korp and Mediterranean uniforms and equipment.

The Stukasaurus models appear to be of Pteranodons. The paint job on them is loosely based on some artwork I found of pteranodons.

This dinosaurs were all base coated with the airbrush then additional details added by hand with a regular brush using both wash and drybrush techniques. Next the equipment and the mounts were painted. Finally the figures were based and the basing detailed with putty, flock, static grass, and grass clumps.

Architects of War Blood Trees

Architects of War has their own miniatures game called Fanticide which has some really interesting miniatures in it. More of these will be appearing over the next month as we complete them. These "Blood Trees" are part of that line but would work well in a variety of games as a sort of evil Tree. Sized for 28mm they are a pretty decent size, probably about 8+ inches tall.

These are two complete sets we did for two customers but placed together for effect. Eight of the models will cover a pretty decent area. Mixed in with some regular trees these would make a pretty decent sized evil forest.

They have lots of character and paint up well. I left off the foliage until the tree itself was painted then attached it afterward. I then touched up the join a bit. There is a bit of a seam where the armatures attach but for the most part it is barely noticeable, especially at normal gaming distances.

The pool of blood is our usual resin bar-top stuff, poured in after painting and left to dry well.

We will have some Fey, Creeps, and Flying Monkeys coming up from their line later this month.

28mm French and Indian War

Here's some more figures from Galloping Major Miniatures we did for Loyalhanna Outpost for their displays. It includes some Indians and provincials.

First up are some Iroquois. We did these up with a variety of warpaint with a few with no warpaint:

Here's the provincials. Most all from Maryland if I recall correctly. The flag is from The Flag Dude:

And that's it for now. Sorry for the short posts but we've been busy trying to catch up after the holidays so time is a bit short right now.
