These are some more old figures I painted a long time ago... they are from the PETER PIG 15mm sci-fi range, unfortunately they seem to no longer be available, which is a shame - although they're quite basic and chunky models - I think they look great! - So I've given them the "red mars" treatment - thats 24 minis to add to my GRUNTZ squads...
I'm going to concentrate on painting up some new minis next... CRITICAL MASS Kaamados Horde first I recon...

I can't remember how I painted these little guys - it's such a long time ago - It seems to be a basic drybrush and wash effect - I think they still look pretty striking - especially with their new bases!
These Szithk figures are still available from 15mm.co.uk:

Although some folks are still using the old Lazerburn rules (and why not!), things have moved on somewhat... there are a few other good rules systems around - especially FUBAR (very basic free rules all on one page!) and the new GRUNTZ 15mm skirmish rules that have just come out... I just got a copy of these - and I've really taken to them - very versatile, easy to pick up, and they cover everything from single figures of 15mm infantry and vehicles to mechas and giant monsters!
Some of the best 15mm figures/vehicles I have come across so far are from:

It's been a long time since I painted any miniatures, so I might post some pics up on here as I do them - If they don't turn out a complete disaster! - I've been checking out the TINY SOLITARY SOLDIERS blog for some painting tips - that guy is just fantastic!!
