Time to spam again  ;D ;D

Latest batch of SOR ready for viewing. They would have been done quicker had I not been distracted but some Cybertronic figures I spotted as I was getting these out to paint  ;D see my new thread for those..

Pictures still a bit bleached out will do the bases all in one go with the others, contemplating getting some resin scenic bases or might just finish them myself in an Arid/Industrial scheme

Sodat Kommandant & Soldat Trooper

Soldats

Soldat Flammen

Shock Soldats


Northern Sons (just need the backpacks sticking on)


Group shot


That is all for now.... ending transmission ....

May i ask why the minis stand on these wood
pieces - are they fixed or not and if how?

They are glued on with a little bit of white glue (sometimes know as wood or craft glue) and left overnight makes it easier to do a couple minis at a time and you can easily spin it around in any direction to paint the details just don't put the figures to close to each other otherwise you can't get to all the details, after they are finished as they slightly overlap the base you can insert an screwdriver and carefully pop them off.

I saw it once in an tutorial but never tried it myself. Does it work well?

You have to get the amount of glue right for the weight of the mini the next lot I do I'll take a picture of the base. You want enough so they don't fall off but not to much.

I find it works well you just have to figure out which is the best position on the stick of each set of minis and how many 2 or 3 on each one easily done by doing a dry run first or using blue tack before you glue.  Ideally you want to balance the weight on the stick for ease of holding thats why I tend to do 2 or 3 of the same figure on one stick also makes it easier to do batch painting as you are painting the same bit on a couple of minis at a time.

 I do the same for 10mm Warmaster figures as well except I use double-sided tape on the base instead.
