Horizon Wars part 2 (waifu edition ' )

 


This is my wife's attempt at mini sculpting. 6mm (10mm grid for scale) FarmHammer 🐤 Eggsdar faction, the op force for my Space Porks.

2 heavy tanks, a combat walker, regular infantry and a heavy infantry chi-ken. WIP status, needs weaponization. Hope you like her stuff, she insists adding that it's 'her first time' whatever it means.

Nail or Fail?

Las minis de 6mm (retícula de 10mm para escala) que ha hecho mi mujer para FarmHammer 🐤 los Eggsdar, antagonistas de mis pancetas espaciales.


2 tanques pesados, un bípode de combate, infantería ligera y un power armour chi-ken. Todo a medias, claro, faltan detalles como armarlos, Cañonizar tanques etc.

Insiste en que es 'su primera vez'. Que, son una castaña o están pepinos?

    1. Piensa que la mayoría nos enganchamos a esto con 13 años. Crecemos,nos creemos importantes y lo dejamos. Y en la madurez algunos vuelven. El efecto maquetita de tren lo llamo yo.

      Algo que parece ser un imán de niños no se, quizás es que no sea sociopolítica durante la guerra fría sino algo divertido, gamberro...

      Muchos pierden de vista esto. Yo recuerdo a los tiranidos con lanzamisiles y bolters, Marines con catapultas shuriken... Tomándose un copazo en un bar (2 marines de capítulos diferentes).

      Etc. El factor 'divertido' no debería perderse de vista.

  2. She's sharking us... no way this is her first sculpting ;) They're great, I love the little tractor-tank! And power armour for chickens? Of course there is.

    Are you going to adapt any existing 6mm stuff (a scale I'm admittedly not too familiar with) to go with these, or scratch build it all yourselves?

    1. We are going to do it all from scratch: 5 bases each, be it infantry, tanks or mechs (no aircraft yet, sorry).

      Next wave will be making a gaming Matt (or something modular) and finally some terrain.

      We have no clue thought: desert, classic green lands, ruined cityscape, martian reddish kind of thing.

      Can't decide what would look better for 6mm/10mm cheesy wargaming.

    2. Ooh! I'm now looking forward to seeing your terrain ideas!

  4. Són buenísimos. Me encanta el pollo bípedo, me pido un blister entero.

    Deseando ver una batalla con todos los animalicos desplegados a la vez.

    1. Buff... Pintarlo será lo de menos, modelar tan enano es demasié. Ponerle a cada cerdo el casco, el arma...

      El tema es el campo de batalla. Primero que no sé si hacer desierto, bosque, nieve... Con las bases tengo un problemita. Y lo mismo en cuanto a la escenografía etc.

      Gracias por pasar! 😉

  5. Tira de clásicos básicos. Rocas de corteza de árbol,llenas una mesa en dos cortapega y tres brochazos.

    Yo lo hice para mechwarrior, que es también escala pequeña y da el pego. Si me disculpas la publicidad te dejo link de demostración: http://siyofuerafriki.blogspot.com/2013/03/escenografia-facil-rocas_29.html?m=1

    1. Que!? No al revés... Muchas gracias. Voy a verlo como un rayo.

      Recuerdo los posts aquellos de "hazte barriles con tapones de botellas" pero no de "mechwarrior" 🤔

      Es una putada, ciertamente. Uno se lía la cabeza con cosas chulas, que si desiertos de Marte, junglas de Venus... Pero al final lo que el cerebro lee mejor es "suelo verde, árboles, piedras".

      Tenemos la mente (el ser humano) tan sobre raíles que da pena. Gracias de nuevo.

  6. Muy chulos. Las cabezas de pollo me recuerdan mucho al mítico gallifante, o esa es la primera cosa que ha pasado por mi cabeza al verlo.

    1. Te puedes creer que tengo un gallifants escala narizona sin acabar... Desde hace años ??

      Deberías, soy me. Todoamedias. Le falta la cabeza que nunca supe cómo cuadrarla 😖🐘

      Que viejales semos... A mi adicionalmente me recuerda a curro de la Expo!

      Gracias por pasarte por aquí.

  7. Hey Javi, I hope everything is vaguely okay for you over there. This feels like it's been going on forever, and at some point I lost track of what was happening in a lot of other countries. At some point I was actually pretty up on Covid stuff in Spain due to a former colleague who lives there. But now? Like everyone else I'm just nervously watching the infection rates in my own town.

    1. Thanks for caring! I'm really not in the mood for much tbh: not modelling at all almost not painting.

      2 days ago I forced myself to do so.

      I'm just tired. Homebound with way wife and parrot, that's 2 more screaming birds than I can actually bear 😄

      Where I live it's been like psychological war for too long: economy crisis, political corruption... part of my country wants to split apart and no matter on which side you are, the wear and tear has been intense for the last years. Oh and then there's the freedom of speech. People going jail for singing stuff, that flips my wig. I'm not really a political guy but seeing people prosecution due to what they think is far beyond me.

      Then world was blown away by the virus. Bear in mind 1st was china, then Italy. And here we were sitting next to them thinking it would never happen to us. Virus itself has been mankind's bane for the past year but oh my, our leaders almost took every worst decision they could. And I'm fine with that. People has their right to be wrong. But understanding it's not current government fault but everyone's. Knowing no matter who will lead us the results will most certainly the same. That erases any shade of hope. Here we have really low profile politicians on every side of it.

      Work has been a pain in the ass too: the lack o it, not getting any money,then returning for two months, back to home for a month... actually I work just 2 days a week. Again, people from above you being jerks (sometimes).

      That's the best and annoyingly long update I can provide.

      As soon as I find some motivation I'll shot some photos to share stuff and get back to checking what virtual people I care about have been doing.

      Really hope you and your fam are doing OK 😙

    2. Wow I should have checked for a reply more often... Sorry :/ I hope things maybe have improved a ... little bit? in the last few weeks? But I know we're pretty much in the same place as we were. Nothing has really changed.

      Over here our gov't has somehow bungled the vaccine schedule so it looks we're going to be waiting a loooong time to get our jabs. My fam is managing... there's nowhere to go, everyone stares at tablets and phones way too much, but at least the kids are going to school, grudgingly. I _have_ been painting; if I didn't I'd go bananas because all my creative energy would be going to drawing SO MANY Pokemons for my Pokemon-obsessed son.

      Yes, so tired. I hear you. 🤗😐

    3. Hey Javi 🙂. Just dropping by with a blogger wellness check. I hope you and your wife are okay. From what I can see online it looks like Spain is rolling out vaccinations now, roughly around the same schedule as we are here... May you get yours as soon as possible ☺️

  8. Llámame rarito, pero hay una cosa que me tiene loco de estas miniaturas y es la pulcritud de las superficies, osea ¿Qué *uta brujería es esta? cuanto más lo miro más me flipa. Los diseños, siempre de dieses

    1. RARITO!🙃

      A ver, las ha hecho mi pareja, es brujería fijo.😆

      Hay truquis. Usar una superficie no porosa, bruñir la superficie...

      Pero si no quieres que te den las uvas pasando una herramienta para que quede fino siempre puedes recurrir al viejo dicho:

      El enemigo de mi enemigo es mi amigo. Todas las masillas tienen un enemigo natural, la miliput se disuelve en agua, a otras les va bien el aceite de bebé o el alcohol (ese me suaviza a mí) isopropílico.

      Pasando un pincelillo untado en el potingues pertinente le das un acabado más orgánico (también destruyes las aristas, ojito armas, robots...)

      Muchas gracias por pasarte y comentar flechote, espero actualizar pronto 🤘
