I’m gonna have to look at paint stripping heat guns and see how they look for the hand flamer!

For some reason I now want to attempt some throwing knives... or screwdrivers. :D

Oh well, the next batch!!

@cainex1 @Punktaku I’m totally blaming you for encouraging me to be making tiny screwdrivers out of plastic hex and round rod!!


Right. Now how best to attach these to a Goliath(s)? They sorta have a tool belt...

Would I get away with using these as proxy “throwing knives”? I think the story potential of someone getting taken OOA by a thrown screwdriver would be quite funny. :D Plus! Thematic.

Awesome! Make another dozen mini-tools and offer them as tribute to the next yak competition winner(s)? :-D

I accept that blame with gusto!
Also yeah, they could fit for any kind of knife/dagger. Even poison.. who knows what sort of awful stuff those have been poking around in?

Whoa, hammer-stapler and heat gun maybe. I didn't say anything about the screwdrivers! (looks good, tho! and really does go with your theme). if you wanna go really nuts with the green stuff, there's always a Utilikilt.

Plus it’s fun to put out a few random ideas!!

Back with another update to my Goliaths. This time I decided to paint up my one and only Juve “Stanley”.


Back:

He’s made from a Wargames Foundry ‘Scabies Punk’ miniature. The original had two in-scale pistols, so I removed them and replaced with two Games Workshop ridiculously oversized Stub Guns. :D
Also had to remove the integral metal base. :mad: Grrrr. Looks better for it I feel and now actually stands upright.

I also added a big fighting knife too. Because I’m more likely to run with Stub gun and knife than x2 Stubs. But coolness and all that. (y)

Here’s a size comparison with Stihl.

As you can see he’s quite big!! Plus with the chest harness he fits in quite well, being muscular but not supersized or armoured.
I for one am very glad I never have to paint those trousers ever again though!!!!

The ‘Scabies Punk’ pack had five figures in, two of which are cool looking punk girls who have now been co-opted into the Escher!! They’ll get painted whenever I get round to the Escher. The others may well end up as scummers.

Ok, it’s been a while. I’ve sadly been very busy with a recent bereavement. I don’t have a lot of time for painting or other stuff.

I’ve drifted back to the forum recently though and although I haven’t made any progress past Stanley for my Goliaths I did paint up a test Cawdor back in early March (because I can’t stick to one thing apparently).

So I’m posting him up here!

This is Brother Ventaille, a Cawdor Ganger.
He’s armed with an autopistol and a cleaver (axe).

The colour scheme is based on my old 1996 Cawdor green and white one, just updated to be a bit grungier (but still bright!!).


I’ll continue with my Goliaths soonish. But at least I kinda know where the Cawdor will be going when I get them started!!

I also have a load of name plates for my Gangers now too, so I’ll have to get gluing them on when I get time.
