Lara Croft

I once again commissioned a mini of one of my all time video game characters in chibi form from Martin Baker. I’ve been a fan of Lara Croft since the very first Tomb Raider game, released 1996. Still got the original game box sitting on a shelf. The re-imagination of Tomb Raider in 2013 by Crystal Dynamics was a fantastic way to reinvigorate the character and the franchise.

This model is based on the 2013 version of Lara, featuring her new signature weapons, the bow and the climbing axe. The model was painted in the classic Lara Croft color scheme.

Mecha Front Neo-Bloc Goshawks

After painting mainly chibi minis for some time now, it wanted to paint something different.

As couple of mecha minis from Jon Paulson’s Mecha Front Kickstarter arrived late last year I jumped at the opportunity and began painting them. I loved mecha minis since I got my hands on BattleTech minis in the late 80s. Have painted dozens of those and the Mecha Front minis remind me of them a lot. As an added bonus they have a much more appealing size with 15mm instead of the 6mm BattleTech minis.

It took quite some time to finish the minis, as I was also fixing my damaged Warmachine minis at the same time. Some repositioning of the legs and adding magnets to the weapon arms so I could exchange the weapon layout also added to the time it took to finish the minis.

At long last all three variants of the Neo-Bloc Goshawk are finished. Need to find some time to try out the game system, soon.
