From JuanM: Sci-Fic Civilians (15 Points)

Hello!

Here is my second entry and the last one for 2016.
I am painting the miniatures from Lead Adventure Miniatures´ Astropolis kickstarter and I can say these miniatures are really nice, crisp and with a lot of character.
The first one is a mechanical from the Engineering deck and the second, an off-duty tech:






I expect to use these figures mainly as NPC in my "Rogue Stars" games, but some of them are going to have a more prominent role...

Then, I have painted a Hasslefree Miniatures Space Goblin:






I think he is going to be a contractor, part of an escort detail for a landing party. Behind him is another Haslefree Miniatures figure I painted some years ago. With his new base, he is now a cyborg from a very dangerous band of cyber-bandits...

And this is all for now. Happy New Year for all of you!!!

Lovely work Juan! Lead Adventure figures are so characterful and you've done a wonderful job with your paintwork. I particularly like the faded blue coveralls on the Engineer - a very subtle, but convincing effect. The Goblin cyborg is eye-catching figure as well. His base is fantastic.

Well done! Now, I have to get a wiggle on with my next entry for our duel!

  5. I can't decide which one I like best! Love the skin tone on the Space Goblin but the other two just have so much character.

  6. I just love these figures - grimdark has its place, but sometimes you just want some good old-fashioned Space Opera! Simply brilliant!

    1. Yes, my friend. A lighter tone is not bad, sometimes.

  11. A Happy New Year Juan! Outstanding work on these rather lovely miniatures. I was eyeing the Kickstarter myself, but with no SciFi project currently running I decided not to jump on the bandwagon. Looking at your guys I might change this though.

  14. Great work! And some really great looking sculpts as well. I seem to have missed these completely. Didn't now they'd done a sci-fi line like that!

  15. Lovely work, lovely figures.

  16. Just the basing alone is breathtaking but the figures themselves - my stars!
    I can't help thinking that the relaxed poses of the two techs remind me a lot of the techs I see at the base where I work.

  17. Very fine work on these,Juan!
    I do like the goblin and the photo bombing hasslefree trooper, but the mechanics are pure awesome!
    I really like the potbelly fellow in coveralls, but the resting senior Tech is no slouch either! ;)
    I really like the stage dressing figures and these two do that task very well!
