28mm Freighter Crew

Some recent additions, a 28mm Captain and first mate for my TT Combat freighter.

Captain Salty, not breaking down any stereotypes, and First Mate Queequeg.

Here on the freighters deck.

The first mate is the first time I ever painted anything in hip waiters.

Cobra CLAW for Pulp 80s gaming

The Covert Light Ariel Weapon or CLAW was always one of my favorite small Cobra vehicles. I remember first seeing it in a tv commercial and later in the second GI Joe cartoon mini series.



So here is a 3D printed in resin example scaled for 28mm gaming.



My rigging for a flight stand, a converted cd spindle.

28mm Army of Africa Moroccans for Spanish Civil War

By request here is my complete group of Moroccans for Spanish Civil War gaming. I said 60+, but it turned out to be 50+ unless I didn't dig all of them out!

What you see here is an Early War Army of Africa force consisting of 2 Pelotons of infantry, a command group and 2 LMG teams. Typically you would only at best see 1 LMG team per Peloton as they were rare in the SCW.

I also upgrade 4 troops in one Escuadra to Tank Sappers with crow bars and explosives. Just the thing for pesky T-26s with green crews.

My next step is to label the bottoms of each base with a colored label that calls out which group they belong with and rank. Then it's straight to storage until I can strong someone in to playing again 😂

The whole Rifle Seccion, 2 Pelotons of 3 Escuadras each with supporting LMG teams and Command.

The troops are a mix of Empress and Force of Arms so I have 2 Tenientes!

Figures mix well, here is an Empress LMG team. Never did here historical evidence if there were Moroccan HMG teams, if there is a source out there, please let me know!

28mm Spanish Civil War Moroccans

A force of 60+ Moroccans is now finished for my Nationalist forces. Used as shock troops by Franco, these soldiers fought with a record for bravery all through out the war.
Command team.

Safe place to fire!

Steady advance

A lot of variety with the uniforms. If you like variety of troops and cool uniforms mixed with ww1 and ww2 style warfare, this is the period for you!

THINGSSSS INNNNN SPAAAAACE!!

I finished up some Retro Scifi stuff for Flash Gordon style gaming that's been languishing in my lead hoard for many years.

My inspiration is drawn from the 1980's Flash Gordon cartoon that I watched devotedly every Saturday morning. It was cool because it was broken into chapters and carried a continuing story line.  It's from these rotoscoped cells that I used as a color palette.



Some Silver Sentinel miniatures with a Rattrap Productions Gordon mini.

Another view of the intrepid team.

All Rattrap Productions miniatures, great figures!

Supersystem minis made up as a Mongoesque villains team.

A galactic scrap!
