Kermit the Llurgh

Finished my first squad of Khurasan's excellent Llurgh. I only took closeups of each individual pose, of which there are six, including the leader with sword raised and the tricranial mutant. These are excellent figs, sculpted by Whiffwaff(if I remember correctly), and a joy to paint. I had to go green on these guys and I feel they are a cross between Kermit the frog and the original Dungeons and Dragons TROLL. I only have 4 squads of these guys to paint up (small raiding party or mercenary band) complete with 4 Llurghwagon semi armored personnel carriers I crafted( see a prior blog post). Cant wait for the Khurasan control battalions.

Blue Moon Orion Republic Heavy Infantry

Hello, just a few pics of my finished squad of Blue moon Orion Republic Heavy Infantry.
Really like these guys, just did a simple 3 color paint job with a wash for speed( Did  a test version of blue/white grey camo due to Spacejackers' excellent camo on his, and I liked the way it turned out--but I opted out of the camo  in favor of simplicity and speed.
what I like is the 10 unique poses....I trimmed a little off their  antler backpacks and gave the heavy weapons guy , a frame harness for his BFG,  little like aliens colonial marines swing mount( its just a paperclip)
all in all very fun squad to paint- had one more pic of 3 guys that the blog elementals devoured
