    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    Basing, can be an art in and of itself at times, especially in D&D miniatures... I tend to go as basic as I can get away with for now! I still feel my bases are an afterthought, but then I don't want to get bogged down worrying about those!

    Not sure if these pigments are the most effective with the zenithal priming technique. The "Territorial Beige" worked best I think, as it is translucent enough (and something I missed typically painting it onto my desert tan camo spraypaint priming in other projects). Next best was "Forest...

    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    More Giant Stompy Robots! Getting my Strato Minis put together and more basing details before proceeding with paint. Waiting for a coat of PVA glue to dry on the model railroad ballast I'm using on the bases. In the mean time, I've attached arms to the command mech, the Bullshark/Marauder and...

    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    Mistakes were made, and my phone camera has some great shots of the vehicles all painted... And some of the other mech pictures.

    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    Here is where I ended up tonight (I started right after finishing that Basilisk in the 40K section of card models...). I am attempting to do a zenithal priming job. With the black base coat, I took my airbrush and gently sprayed white from above to strike the upper surfaces and add the...

    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    The moment you all have scrolled down for! The Strato Mini Labs Mechs! So, Strato Mini Labs is based out of Poland, and I ordered these from an American supplier, Fortress Miniatures, largely because they sponser the YouTube Channel Renegade HPG which covers Battletech extensively. I'm...

    Not the last of the vehicles... I've yet to do a 'final' shot of those! But the last of this series of painting WIP's for them before moving into the Mechs!

    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    As usual, i went with my handy desert tan primer... Oh, but these guys seem to need some recon elements to ensure those LRM (Long Range Missiles) Carriers can deliever indirect fire! My first resin kit from Strato Mini Studios is the Hound RV model. Again, using a small washer on the...

    Battletech: Operation Homecoming; Stratos Mini Studios 6mm Mech build

    Many years ago, the first SF miniature game I ever owned was the foruth edition of Battletech in the late 1990's. I looked forward to finally having my own job (the military) and a local game shop to play in around 2001 when I finally finished my training and got to my first duty station...

    Armageddon Pattern Basilisk SP Arty

    Four months and a day... From May 24th through September 25th (2021). Finally complete though! It's off the workbench and on the shelf. On to more projects... I might be giving 40K paper models a bit of a break given recent events that have moved me more toward Battletech again....

    Spent the last week, a piece at a time, getting everything painted.

    Armageddon Pattern Basilisk SP Arty

    So, these gun mounts do not fit within the turret... So I plan on proceeding without them and finishing the model enclosed. Rear door has similar issues.

    Blackadder's Imperator Titan Build

    Repetitive crafting... Cheaper than psychotherapy!

    Armageddon Pattern Basilisk SP Arty

    Thank you! It's been a slog compared to other models I've built in the past, but well worth it.
