Spectrum is Green!

Well 2nd post of the year and its more Captain Scarlet stuff. I've bought more of Crooked Dice's Time Lift Security miniatures to paint up as Captain Scarlet characters, I'm really enjoying painting these and I'm close to completing the original cast.

First a group shot:

I've painted up Captain Brown, who was only in the pilot episode and was killed along with Captain Scarlet to carry out the Mysterons plot to assasinate the World President. I've also painted up Captain Indigo, who was never seen in uniform and was only in the episode "Spectrum Strikes Back" before being killed by Captain Black. The final colour Captain I have painted is Captain Violet, a Fan-fiction creation by Caroline Smith on the Spectrum Headquarters website. The final two models are extra Spectrum Security Guards to back up to others.

I've also updated the Captain Scarlet page on the blog, now re-named to Anderverse to represent the fact that I will not only be focusing on Captain Scarlet, but also Gerry Anderson's other programs.

Blog Updates

Well I've certainly not kept my promise of updating this blog....I have kept myself busy with various projects:

I finally finished the second half of Squad Forseti:

To go with this I have a squad Sternguard Veterans and a Rhino transport that are still WIP.

Just after christmas I stumbled across a company called Crooked Dice Miniatures who produce miniatures based off TV programes from the 1960s and 70s. One of these ranges is called Time Lift Security, who are based off one of my all time favourite TV shows, Gerry Anderson's Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. I've already managed to paint up all the main colour-coded Captains, along with Colonel White and Lieutenant Green.

Following on from this I am aiming to paint the Angel pilots, along with Captain Brown and Captain Indigo to mostly complete the series cast. I'm hoping that Crooked Dice will release more miniatures soon, including a not-Dr Fawn so I can complete the original cast. Following on from this I intend to do miniatures based off certain characters from New Captain Scarlet and characters invented in the fan-fiction stories located at Spectrum Headquarters, which is a great resource for anyone interested in Captain Scarlet.

That just about does it for now, I'll hopefully update this blog soon.
