Cheers :)

Watcher in the dark? He would stick out like a sore thumb with those floppy robes :o :D

The next sniper is ticking along nicely:

I bought some of the new Kharadron Overlords today and thought I'd share a few scale pix. Before I do, I reckon that they are a bit big for this current army but have potential for a future faction... here they are:









Definitely food for thought... :)

Thanks for the scale shots, very useful

Squats or Dwarves in Space have never really been my thing, but I do like the new GW and Mantic miniatures
I really like this jacket...
but the sleeves are much too long!

The last pic doesn't really work does it.  Monkey arms.
The boots are a far sight better on the new sculpt but kind of remind me of platforms. (Much better sculpting though)

The only reason I have put together all the pictures is because people asked me too :)

I don't think that the two kits (Kharadron and old 1980's Squat) are compatible at all... however some people disagree but that is their choice. I personally won't be using any in my army and haven't really been enthused by them at all really... so they are staying in their box for now.

I think that, with a little effort, they could look great but that would mean bigger heads, sci-fi weapons and a toning down of the 'steampunk' elements... but I am not into doing that at the moment because I have plenty of more pressing things to get on with :)

I love the leaf work.
Is that a chaos dwarf head on the other cork?

Yep :) Very WIP at the moment... it's just a practice sculpt for a commission.

Hopefully... if they are viable for casting (they should be... they'll be resin). I've talked to Rob over at Hysterical Games and warned him that they will be going his way at some point :)

Great snipers. I thought these were two separate photos and the new sculpt was a close up. Now I see it. Some sort of Ogre Sniper?

The snipers have all had their basing tabs added:



They have been packed up and will be sent to my caster tomorrow, for casting in July/August (he's a busy chap). Once they are cast up, I will be able to sell some :) .

Work on the Ogre sniper continues, now that the Halflings have been sent off for casting. I have continued to bulk out the torso and add the muscle groups. It is almost a shame that all this will be covered over... but at least I have a good foundation to work on:



Next will be the lower back and then the feet and lower legs. Lots to do :) .

Still looking good.
Will the snipers be part of your own range?

It appears that Photobucket is holding me to ransom. If I don't pay $399.99 a year, all of my photographs will remain as those photobucket place holders.

I will not be held to ransom so I will be looking for an alternative host. In the meantime, I apologise for the fact that all of my images are gone... and are unlikely to reappear.

I had no warning... the hosting update that apparently happened on 28th June has obviously come into effect. I now know why I have been seeing the place holders on so many forums.

Really. Well that is $h!t. Do you reckon that has happened to everyones account (better check a few of my posts) I've been thinking of changing from photobucket for a while now as the amount of ads etc on it make it so slow to use.
