Forge Father Steel Warriors/Militia

New Year, new project or in this case a very old project that has been long left at the wayside.  The creative urge to finally put some paint on these original Forge Father miniatures finally grabbed me and I've had a blast putting some paint on them.

They're only painting to tabletop standard as I have more than a few of these blighters to get through but they look decent when grouped together and they're in a paint scheme I've not done before with some basing I picked up thinking it would come in handy at some point.  It all works out in the end.

I originally picked these up on their initial release at one of the first Mantic open days and over the years picked up the metal conversion pieces they released to make them a touch more sci-fi (though I made up five as the original plastics).

These minis are the original Steel Warriors however with the release of the newer hard plastic kits they have now shifted to being the Militia but either way I still like their aesthetic and I'm looking forward to diving into more of them.

Below are some W.I.P. shots from box to finished.

  1. These Forge Father miniatures look fantastic! The paint scheme and basing really bring them to life. Can't wait to see more of your work with them.
