Orangutans with Gauss Rifles

Click on image for bigger picture!

For your perusal: SCI-FI 41 "Two Orangutans with Guns" from Sargent Major Miniatures. For a change of pace, not only are these less than a year old, but they're still available: - and then scroll nearly all the way to the bottom of the page.

Mounted on a 25mm round plastic bases.

Painting: Primed white, amaranth red for the body, suntan flesh for hands, feet and face. Eyes were black. Rifles were German gray, with lime green for the lenses of the optics. The bases were covered with a
slurry of ballast, sand, PVA glue and water before priming and painted with medium gray. The entire figure was then dipped with 1:1 mix of polyurethane clear gloss varnish and Minwax Polyshades Tudor. It really worked with the fur. The base was flocked with patches of PVA and then static grass. The entire figure was sprayed with clear matte.

Suitable for Gamma World, Mutant Future, Metamorphosis Alpha, or any other Post Apocalyptic/Science Fiction game.

Still finishing off figures that have been abandoned on the painting bench for the latest shiny thing. There are quite a few. This may take longer than I thought. Usually does. But, those who enjoy Sci-Fi character figures will have something to look forward to for the next few posts.

  1. Great tip on these, they're great-looking minis and you've done them justice for sure.

  2. Thank you! It's going to be post apocalyptic for the next few posts. Finished 12 figures to make room for the vikings.

  3. I just picked up a few of these. Thanks for the link!

  4. You are (belatedly) welcome! I try to include links to the sources of goodies that grace the blog so folks can find them more easily. :)
