Creating a Grymn Force V

Well, after a week, the first Grymn to step off the painting table are here.

This is a group of 4 Heavy Infantry Grymn which together with heavy weapons support from the missile launcher that was the test trooper will make up the first completed squad for my Grymn Force.

First Squad of Heavy Infantry Grymn:

The colours are a bit washed out - I'll take better when I get the light tent out again.

I may have to rethink my approach to this force; I painted these 4 in a batch and even then they have taken me around 8 hours of painting! Even though I know that some of the detail in the figures wont be seen when its on the gaming table I just can't seem to resist painting and highlighting it - After all if Kev of Hasslefree Miniatures bothered to sculpt these tiny tiny tiny tiny details the least I can do is try and daub some paint on them...

Running total (34): Painted - 5 : To Go - 29.


  1. They look great! I get a lot of pleasure out of Kev's stuff, too - moreso than any other manufacturer's stuff.

    There's just a little more TLC, I guess.

  2. I am quite fond of my Grymm also. I also want to give them helmets. I haven't got any good photos of mine yet, though.

    Stop by Forum of Doom to show your painting.

  3. Did you do anything other than cut off the head of the railgunner? I have that mini, and have considered the same change. I worried the helmet wouldn't fit right with the shoulder plates and the left arm reaching across.

  4. Great stuff. You're an inspiration.

  5. Comyn - Just a headswap on the rail gunner. I joined the forum of doom.

    Knut - thanks for the compliment.
