I finished a few more Imperial Assault figures this week. First up are three rebel troopers. I fiddled the uniforms some to give them a bit of variety. I happened to have a Star Wars Legion figure in essentially the same pose and put him below (with a washer to even out the bases) for comparative purposes.

Secrets of the Lost Tomb figures
A fellow asked me to paint the figures he got with the boardgame Secrets of the Lost Tomb. There were 15 plastics figures in the set and they are pretty typical 1930s pulp figures.

Star Wars and Cobra
I'm continuing to work my way through a bunch of Star Wars Imperial Assault figures.
I happened to have a Luke from Star Wars: Legions to illustrate the scale differences between the two games. The Legions figure is on the left below while the Imperial Assault figure is on the right. I used a washer to adjust for the thinner Imperial Assault bases.
I also finished a figure from Hasslefree miniatures as the Baroness. I was short a leader figure for my Cobra army and she was one the few characters I could remember from the cartoon beyond Destro and Cobra Commander.
Up next Some board gaming figures and more Star Wars.

Horrified: American Monsters
A few years back, I painted up the classic movie monster figures that came in the boardgames Horrified. A second version of the game was released that focused on North American monsters. A fellow asked me to paint his and I finished them this week.

Random Star Wars Imperial Assault
I moved a few more 28mm Imperial Assault figures off the bench today. Bases are as requested by the owner. First up are 0-0-0 and BT-1, sociopathic assassins who delight in the termination of "meatbags". I guess? These are from some comic book featuring Darth Vader. Seems like they're just milking players at this point, though.
Then Jabba. This was a nice sculpt and an easy paint.
Finally, there is a boy and his Bantha. This sculpt is big and had a nasty bend to the rifle that straightened right out using hot water. Then came back. Then straightened again with more hot water. Then came back. Got it as straight as I could after an application of heavy cursing and holding it as it cooled.
Up next: Some boardgames figures I'm painting for another fellow and then back to more Star Wars.

I finished up the Scooby gang this week. These are 28mm figures from Hasslefree Miniatures.
I'm not sure why Daphne's face is so washed out here (might be a lighting thing). Or what the hell happened to her legs (although she is probably 70, so I guess wrinkles are to be expected).

Star Wars AT-ST
The model comes with several options for the top hatch, including a commander (a named character I can't recall), and a closed hatch (ALWAYS CLOSE THE HATCH!).
There are also a couple of weapons options, including the pop-up gun below.
Overall, a nice model.

Vive le revolution!
A friend dropped me by this 54mm figure that he picked up in, I think, Cuba (that is the marking on the bottom, anyhow). It is a pre-painted collector figure.
I assumed this was Che or Trudeau's dad, but I was assured it was just a simple, freedom-loving peasant. I did a quick highlight and wash (like 5 minutes?) and I'm super happy with the result.

Santa brought me some Scooby-Doo figures for Christmas and I'm working my was through that. First up are Shaggy and Scooby from Hasslefree miniatures. Nice figures. The rest of the gang (but no Scrappy-Doo, thank God) are underway. I also have some villains from Crooked Dice miniatures.

Imperial Assault... errr... imperials
A friend found some more Imperial Assault figure sets for me to paint so, from the blighted wastes of Tatooine, here are the first figures. Basing is as requested by my buddy and, I presume, has something to do with the scenarios in the game. Or he's just screwing with me. Whatever.
Three storm troopers for the desert plus the Emperor for indoors. Then a jawa for the desert, naturally.
Then there was a Dewback rider. There are two torsos for this figure. Buddy with the long stick (which was warped and responded well to hot water) gets a grey shoulder dealie.
There is also a named character (Captain something or other) with an orange shoulder dealie and a rifle.

Random GW dudes
Nice enough figures and I'm happy to have them done and off my painting table. Next up: Some Star Wars Imperial Assault figures.
