hakufu-grab-kanuA whole load of random things today which have brightened up this gloomy Thursday. 3 figures, 1 CD and a something random in the form of Elfen Lied which in my (biased) opinion is never a bad thing.

Uesugi_TbFrom the eróge role playing game Sengoku Rance, FREEing’s 1/5 pvc pre painted Uesugi Kenshin. This is one very large figure with lots of detail. I have not seen or encountered the game, but had seen many figures of Uesugi Kenshin the combination of Samurai detail and anime cuteness was too much for me to resist. This is a castable figure with a host of extras including sword, armour plate, helmet and a giant size rice bun!

hakufu-grab-kanuPre-orders are up for Shining Wind’s Celestia by Kotobukiya (pics below) and Queen’s Blade Echidna by Griffon. Celestia is a very nice 1/8 scale pre paint pvc figure which is due to ship October this year. Echidna is a 1/7 pre paint pvc figure (castable) and also from Queen’s Blade Allean by Excellent Model, 1/8 scale pre paint pvc figure (castable). Both are set for a September 2009 release and like most of the Queen’s Blade figures before them, I expect pre orders to fill up very fast.

Needless to say my order has gone through already, adding to the growing number of figures for the later half of the year. Roll on Autumn 2009! To see the rest of my Shining Wind figures click here.

Pre-Heresy Rhino APC

DiStudios MiniaturesHere is the first of 3 Space Marine Rhino APC’s, a transport vehicle for Space Marine infantry. I have opted to paint the interiors for these vehicles and time permitting for the support tanks I intend to add as the project progresses. I had a lot of fun painting this vehicle after sculpting the legs on 30 infantry, it was very therapeutic dry brushing the large areas of the tanks hull and then powdering it off with Tamiya weathering pastels. I am pleased with finished article and look forward to painting the remaining 2 transports.

DiStudios MiniaturesWelcome to the first post and pictures for my Warhammer Dark Angels army. Though I have been working on this project for a while I have only now decided to share it while I get more of those Anime photos edited!

Here are some Wip shots of the Space Marine infantry that I am working on. They are based on the Doghouse Gothic design (a model maker) based on enlarging the Space Marines to more realistic proportions compared to the rest of the figure range (Space Marines are depicted as being 7ft tall).

hakufu-grab-kanuHi everyone! Lots of random bits from the month of June. The UK heatwave was a joy and bane at the same time, while I was able to take advantage of the sunshine and get lots of photos done at the same time I was knocked out by the heat after work! Although I have loads of photos that should be posted, the problem I have had is date stamps. I used a digi camera I was unfamiliar with as my own was on loan. Luckily for me my old laptop with the full Adobe package has been fixed so I can go ahead and learn how to clone over offending yellow numbers.4  New figures are due for the first half of July including the much anticipated Asagi Taimanin figure by Liquid (which had been pushed back almost 3-4 months) and Mizore from Rosario Vampire!

Also added today are pictures from my Pre-Heresy model making project, I have a few photos of Warhammer 40k Space Marines from the Dark Angels chapter and some tanks. For those who don’t know, DiStudios used to be my old painting commissions site before I moved to WordPress and although I don’t paint to sell anymore I do dabble in a bit of painting here and there to help me relax.

Thanks for taking the time to look and until next time
