Wrap It Up
Well these poor bastiches have been sitting for a while now and need to be wrapped up so they can join their brethren. These two C23 Jes G Ogres are late additions to the collection. Instead of re-painting them I simply enhanced their original paint jobs. The Samurai Ogre got a white face and a paint up to look like Tujiro the Kabuki Vampire from Grendel Comic fame and a touch up of some other areas. The other one is the Bounty Hunter figure, it was just a touch up and repaints of a few detailed areas. So these are the first guys up. Should be a quick project. Then onto the trolls and demons in the background, but more on them when it's their turn.
I had to go Dark Future/Car Wars after catching the latest Mad Max movie. I loved the original and have been stealing Hotwheels from my sons for over two decade now so it is about time to do something with them. I have also sporadically been attending the Origins Game Fair for the last 8 to 10 years and have always made it a point to stop by the Iron Winds booth which is the Ral Partha company of my childhood. As a side note living here in Ohio I was able to visit them in my early 20s and actually got to meet Julie Guthrie and Tom Meier while I was down there. What a great group of people! But I digress, I always hit their booth because they typically have loose bit and pieces from their Battletech line of mins for sale. So I have tons of little turrets and missile pods and whatnot that I horded for the day I started converting Hotwheels! Oh what a day, what a lovely day!
