Sa-Loot 13; part the second ...

First of all this time, a couple of apologies ... my last post should have been numbered as I've got loads'a'loot at Salute and it'll take three posts to show it all off. So I rectified that, and my last post now is appended 'part the first'

Secondly, I mentioned in my last post that I got blank dice from eM4 Miniatures, but didn't say why! They are for a print'n'play game from Dave's Games called Solid State War (I got it from Wargames Vault, but it's now longer listed there, but is still on Piazo.com).  It's a near future air combat game that uses custom dice - hence the purchase.

As I have Stoelzel's Structures excellent Church of the Faithful to build at some point, I thought I'd need an appropriate 'boss' for that magnificent structure, so I got the 'Bishop with Crozier' from eM4 that you can see to the right. He's been glued to a coin and polyfillaed to hide the figure's base. Next step is smooth the filler and uncover his feet before undercoating.

Note: The Bishop is hidden away in eM4's fantasy section, so it's not easy to find ...
Next up are some figures from Ironclad Miniatures that were new releases for Salute. I think SimonQ (aka Brummie) with his Empire of the Dead thing going on will be particularly interested in these VSF mini's.
The top pic is pack 'ODD08 Police armed with rifles' and the bottom pic is 'CH32 Sgt Barker' (left) with 'CH31 Inspector Corbitt' (right), none of which are listed on their webshop yet ...

Those with fond memories of a certain double act on UK TV in the 70's and 80's may well recognise the Sargeant and Inspector ... a certain 'Blower' from 'Olde London Towne' ?

Last for this post, are the 3 poses from the 15mm Peter Pig's 'Bayonet and Ideology' Spanish Civil War range pack 59 'Female militia in civilian dress'. I got these to add a bit of variety to my VBCW militia.The pack I got had 3 of each of the outside models and 2 of the centre figure.

That's it for this post. Next time (the last on Sa-Loot) we'll have the toys I got from Hasslefree and Fenris (and maybe some others that I can't remember right now!)

  1. Ironclad do some interesting stuff. I have 2 of the "Mr Hyde" figures to use as zombie tanks for example. And many of their other figures will have alternate uses too.

  2. Some excellent loot indeed. I've always adored the Otherworld line, great stuff that taps into my younger self, and so cleanly done. But it's the Bishop that really drew my eye, I've been looking for a good one for some time (wanted to a Pope Innocent XLII from Matt Wagners Grendel comic for along time along with a tattered robe mentally unstable grendel from that time). Anyway, never saw this one before and looks fairly perfect, thanks.

    1. I agree completely about the Otherworld minis - very nice. Good to know the Bishop is useful to you Carl, but I thought he had more of an Innocent the XLIII look myself ... :)

  3. How are you going to make up the dice? I like those bobbies with rifles they might make some useful additions to my kickstarter stuff when it lands.

    1. The dice - well I'll try permanent markers initially, but might have a go at engraving with my handy-dandy multi-tool ... when I've got some spares that is!

  4. Nice Haul there, I must make a mention that I recently got some Peter Pig stuff and was suprised as to how well it painted up, on another note have you gotten any further with the paper spaceship buddy ?
