 After discovering 1mm height 15mm washers, I decided to rebase all my civilians on 15mm bases. All military figures will remain on 18mm washers. Here is a group shot of 6 civilians from different manufacturers.

Two identical Laserburn civilians and sheep herder from Irregular Miniatures.

Soviet nurse from Plastic Soldier Company, GZG female colonist and Laserburn female civilian.

I've been working on 15mm Tyranid Ripper swarm and allready painted five of ten models and want to share some photos with you. These are 5 poses of rippers I have. The beaked one with blue base side is a Swarm leader. I will share a photo of whole swarm when I finish it :)

Sorry, but these chaps aren't painted yet.


15mm dogs rebased

Just rebased two dogs on my newly bought 15mm washers! These are 15mm "Irregular Miniatures" Labrador and Alsatian dogs from this range.

Here is size comparison between Alsatian dog and 15mm Laserburn range figure. I painted this dog as Dogmeat from Fallout 3.

New 15mm washer!!!!!!


I've been basing my models on 18mm in diameter and 1,2mm height washers from Bunnings Warehouse. But I found that for some models  want to use smaller washers. I found 15mm washers and based some of my animals on them, but I wasn't satisfied with final result, because these 15mm washers are very thin, about 0.3mm in height.


But recently I found some new washers Bunnings Warehouse. These washers were sold not in packs but individually and have diameter of 15mm  and height of 1mm. So I rebased my Eytaran on new washer.



Now have a look at infantry and cavalry model based on 18mm washer with Eytaran on new 15mm washer! At last they all have same style. If you interested why Rebel Minis marine and Ottoman general have bronze base sides and Eytaran base side painted with Kommando Khaki, here is the answer: I paint  base sides of ordinary models with same colour as their bases sand, Unit leaders have blue base sides, squad attachments have red coloured base sides and army commanders have bronze base sides.


For big models I use 31mm washers.

P.S. Yes, I changed flock on Rebel Minis commander, so dont be confused why this model have different base on first and second photo.

The SHM Range on 15mm.co.uk gets Packs!


News from 15mm.co.uk! Quote from Gavin Syme blog

///////////////////////////////////////


SHMP01 Cyborg Enslavers


My ‘metal baby’ is growing up!  As of Friday this week 15mm.co.uk will be selling the SHM range miniatures not only as singles but also as packs at 4.00GBP each.  Why does this matter you might say?  Well it shows the range has now become successful enough to enter the ‘trade’ ranges offered in packs to dealers and stores as well as to wargamers on the website.  This is a big thing to me.

The SHM range has currently got more than thirty miniatures in it and soon it will have more than forty from more than five different sculptors and I cannot say this enough…without my support of the SHM concept none of these miniatures would exist in white metal for gamers to get in their collections.  So miniatures by rookie and new talents have proven themselves able to support a blister pack range.  Round of applause indeed!

While the pack range will contain seven different codes (SHMP01 to SHMP07) all at the same price their contents will vary from ten down to five miniatures as the range is so eclectic that it was impossible to assign a level number of castings to each code.  Also they were not designed to be in packs.  I am confident though that these packs will prove popular just like the HOF and Laserburn ranges.   Several SHM are among the most popular codes we sell.
