Somewhere in Manchuria

Kind of a large update today with a lot of newly painted miniatures and new terrain. First I have to thank to a nice LAF fellow Hombre who built for me all that new beautiful stuff used in this scene. The houses are loosely based on the buildings from the movie The Good, the Bad,… Read more »

Captain Krustache of Kashgar; explorer, geographer, discoverer of lost cities and mustache cultivator! That is this year’s Movember charity miniature of Pulp Figures, sculpted by Bob Murch. At the time Bob is very busy sculpting native American Indians (and soon also some spirit creatures according to his statement on Facebook today) for his coming game and… Read more »

Somewhere in Tibet

Another LPL entry today, from the Round 7. I know, LPL is over (all 10 rounds) and I fell behind a bit, updating my blog. So here we go with something from the literal back of beyond in terms of wargaming of course. Some more of Copplestone miniatures, his splendid and my beloved Tibetans! Well,… Read more »

Chinese Bandits

Another update for my Back of Beyond project, some Chinese Bandits. Most of them are Copplestone sculpts, only the one guy (red cap, armed with the double-barreled shotgun) is an older Foundry miniature, made by Perries and coming from the 19 century Chinese range. I thought he fits the gang quite nicely though. In the… Read more »

Chinese Bandits

Last weekend I’ve been visited by some friends of mine. We had some games, some painting party and the guys kindly did make some conversions for my running BoB project. Something like these two Chinese (Obelisk civilian on the left and Bob Murch’s Tong gansgter on the right): or this Foundry Ex-Askari, now a Chinese… Read more »

Prof.Witchheimer , young Indiana Jones and a Bounty Hunter

This very special Back of Beyond Prof was a gift from Lt.Hazel (LAF) who did convert him out of the Prof.Witchheimer miniature (LAM). He also painted him very nicely. Thanks, Jan, love your creation :) And another conversion is following Prof, a young Indiana Jones! I’ve made him out of a Bob Murch miniature. Prof… Read more »

Mad Baron and Chinese Bounty Hunter conversion

Roman Nikolai Maximilian von Ungern-Sternberg, also known as Mad Baron. To be honest I’ve never been a big fan of this Copplestone’s interpretation of the baron. I would prefer a more uniformed version and one day I will be converting one for sure. Though for the moment this one should be enough for my progress…. Read more »

Shanghai Li vs. Marina Semenova

We were talking about female BoB miniatures and their prototypes in the Corto Maltese comics on LAF today and I’ve decided to make some shots of these two lovely females in my collection. I’ve presented Marina Semenova to you yesterday (the very nice miniature on the right, made by Bob Murch) and here comes her opponent Shanghai Li,… Read more »

Duchess Marina Semenova

Marina Semenova is a cold and beautiful russian noblewoman who appears in the Corto Maltese comics. There she has some business in Manchuria and plays one of the main roles in the “Corto Maltese in Siberia” book. I was immediately thinking of her seeing this lovely Bob Murch sculpt. Okay, I’ve changed the hair color… Read more »

Somewhere in Outer Mongolia, 1921 A.D.

Well, sorry, it’s been a while again, I’ve had some sort of a hobby break due to private matters. But in the meantime I’m quite back in the saddle and starting regular updates here on the blog again. As part of LAF “It’s alive” Project I am going to revive my old Back of Beyond… Read more »
