Shield Swap, 2 Chicks, and a Sebeki Conventioneer

My first ToTanem Spearman conversion. Looking at the myriad of different shield now available to me I decided his original one wasn't so great and swapped it out for one of the Forge of Ice Sherden shields.

Now his shield fits in better with his comrads' size-wise.

Tale of War "Jannet" (I've renamed her Minerva Jones) with a slight conversion (pistol hand instead of the original hockey stick).

Hasslefree "Maxine" space girl adventuress. I've not seen a painted version of this mini yet, hopefully I haven't ruined it for everyone...

 And finally my second Sebeki Conventioneer (Crocodile Games' convention figure from 2010?)!

Like the original, he's got a cup of Ka-berry juice to enjoy while waitinginline...

And here are the two together, no doubt discussing the upcoming Olympus book Kickstarter.

Dollar Tree 28mm-ish Vehicles

In the constant search for cheap 28mm terrain, vehicles, etc. I came across these Turbo Wheels at Dollar Tree this afternoon and decided to get a couple packs. The store I was at only had 2 different packages each with the same vehicle designs but molded in different colored plastic. There's a not-quite-Hummer-more-of-a-Jeep and a generic small Pickup truck. I used my pinky to judge the scale in the store because I always forget to carry a mini with me for this sort of thing.

 Here's the Jeep with an assortment of 28mm ladies (not-Clix Hunger Games girl, Hasslefree Grymn Space Pirate Sola, anda Necromunda Escher chick.


And the same 3 with the Pickup...

And a little shootout between a Gray Gunfighter and a Heroclix rebase/repaint of Abbey Chase. I think these would work great with 28mm figs, the only drawback is just the 2 designs. I'll have to check the other Tree Dollar and see what they have. These would also be good to use for post-apoc wrecks with some chopping up...
