Ancients, phase 1

I've been experimenting with 1:72 plastics over the last few months. These are a few of the first ones that I painted, just to practise on. The Egyptian skintones need a bit more definition, but considering they are the first ancients I've attempted to paint properly, I was quite happy with them:

Hopefully I'll get some other pictures up soon, which should include Hittites, Canaanites, Syrians, Lybians, and Bedouin.

First Post

So, after a long time deliberating, I've decided to get into blogging. I'm not going to go mad with it, as I really don't have the time, but when I do, I will put pictures up of some of my work. First up, some of my Stargate Miniatures based on the SG1 series


And a Goa'uld with his Prime and Jaffa:

All of the miniatures are by GZG. I made the cloaks on some of the figures using a little bit of Green Stuff flattened out and shaped around the model. I have to be honest, I really like how the flowing effect turned out. Not bad for a first attempt at using it, even if I do say so myself! :-)

I'm hoping to add more Jaffa, SG teams in camoflage, and I've been looking for a more appropriate figure to represent my Goa'uld, but my search has been in vain so far!!!

I bought some really good scenery off Ebay in the shape of a temple entrance, and some sphinx statues, but I'll put those up on another post!

Ciao for now.
