Thunder Mesa Mining Company Desperados

Quick little update today. Did this little free commission for a friend up in Camp Verde for his On30 layout called Thunder Mesa Mining Company which is a railroad blog that I follow. You will notice that the model railroad layout is based on the Big Thunder Mine train rollercoaster at Disneyland and the Calico Mine Train at Knott's Berry Farm. Dave Meek is an outstanding modeler and I love looking at his layout.

A few weeks ago he did a post on an expansion of the layout and I thought I would send him a few extra old west figures I had lying around to populate the layout. Now these are Foundry miniatures and are 25mm ( or 1/56 scale) and will be pretty close to 1/48th scale figures. So a few hours of work and off went these four desperados to join the Thunder Mesa Mining Co (or Rob their trains!)

Thorins Company

So a quick update, just finished up Thorins Company for a good friend up in Colorado. Sad thing is the models look better in person than they do in these pictures. Enjoy!

82nd Airborne


Another commission completed and this would be my 5th airborne army I have painted (one of the five was my own though). This one (much like mine) is based off the 82nd airborne and are wearing the green jump uniform as was common in the late war. So here is the 82nd (again)

British Armour

Company Command and 2IC

Bazookas for everyone!

The whole force
 So there you go, now back to work on some LotR Dwarves, then a Fate of the Nations army, followed by more Wild West Exdous, Dark Age and 20mm German Paras, busy busy busy!

Were Back!!!


Welcome back SPS fans, we are back and kicking out commissions once again, so here is the first commission, some FoW models and a Warlord model thrown in. Also you may notice there are no insignia markings, this customer enjoys doing the decal work himself, so the decals are being shipped with the completed models.

Now I have also been working on a large Commission for the fine folks over at Wild West Exodus, I am in the process of painting their entire range for them for Demos and in house gaming.Here are the Lawmen with Hired Hands. I don't play this game, but I really like these models, and look forward to painting the rest of the line.
