Greetings Terrans, I have a bit of a general update post for you today – a bit of an odds-and-sods photo dump really!
Fist up, some excellent Bob Olley Beastmen courtesy of the incredibly generous Azazel:
One of them was missing a weapon so I popped on a Bolt Pistol with a view to having them as an Abhuman squad in my one-day Bob Olley Rogue Trader army… These fellas have literally travelled around the world & were a real pleasure to paint – I am so happy to give them a home Az, I can’t thank you enough dude!
Next, sticking with the Rogue Trader theme, I painted up these Bob-bots that Ninjabread Chris had made up:
These were great fun, perfect for a wet afternoon of speed painting!
Finally, I found enough bits to make a Witch-elf:
I painted her to match my other DoK, and the rather OTT pose was entirely forced by using a helmet to match her colleagues… She’s a bit goofy, but I kinda like the ridiculousness of the pose, and happily, getting her finished means that I was able to round out this quartet to make an actual unit!
I think that’ll do for this week – I have a few more random bits to share, but it’ll be more Realm-of-Warcry next week :-)
Those Witch Elves are sweet. But the Bob-Bots steal the show for me! I’m always a sucker for robots! :D
Cheers mate, they are cute aren’t they? Very true to the original RT picture as well 😊👍
Y’know, I actually missed out on Rogue Trader. I have seen a few pics though, and I’m sure it would have been right up my alley! But back at that time, I was mostly into D&D and the other TSR games.
RT will be out on reprint at Warhammer World soon 😉
Oooh, what a lot of good stuff! Hard to choose, but I think the Beastmen are my favourite! Lovely work indeed. The bombots are sweet indeed, and the Witches are scary but lovely, if that makes any sense!
Cheers dude, yeah, the Beastmen are my faves by a mile – who can resist these gribbly little weirdos 😂
Awe man, that leaping elf is the bomb!
Leapy and whippy – great combo 😁
Cheers dude 👍

Some great figures there. Rather envious of the beastmen and bombbots – are the latter available to buy?
Cheers Pete, not sure tbh! If you google Ninjabread you may be able to track Chris down & ask if he has any
Some great figures there Alex and I love that dramatic witch-elf. 🙂
Cheers mate, I just find her hilarious to be honest Says a lot about GW that this is only just a smidge OTT 😂
Brilliant stuff. Those Beastmen are great – I think that the understated poses and naturalistic colours suit each other very well. By contrast, the dynamism of the pose Witch Elf is wonderfully in character. Did you have to do significant work on the angle of her torso? I remember that even the stock pose is leaning rather far forward but she is almost horizontal.
Cheers mate, glad you like ’em. The Elf’s body hasn’t been changed – it is designed to be more upright, but using that helmeted head meant that the angle of the head got tilted right back… It was either keep the body pose & have her staring straight up in the air or get ‘creative’ :-)
Love the Beastmen, are they Nurgle? They’re such classic sculpts! The bots are cute as hell, but the witch-elf is my fave: the pose is so dynamic and doesn’t look silly at all, and she fits in perfectly with the rest of the group. Nice work!
Cheers mate, there are a few Nurgly ones in there, plus a cheeky Slaaneshi one with his bottom hanging out 😂
Glad you like ‘em all mate, and yeah, that Witch Elf just makes me smile 😁
All good stuff mate, but as said those Bob Bots are really cool little sculpts!
Cheers mate, aren’t they just the cutest? :-)
The Bob-bots are cute haha. I’ve never seen them before. Nice post Alex

Excellent work on all Alex, and some old sculpts in there as well.
Cheers mate, oldies but goodies 😊
The bob bots are great and the witch elf is fantastic and suitably OTT. The beastmen win it for me though – you can’t beat some classic grumpy old beasts.
Cheers matey – too right 😊
I’m with Eric on the leaping Witch Elf!!
😂 Cheers mate
Ah! very cool to see those beasties there – a far better fate for them than they would have had sitting here forever and you’re more than done them justice. You’ve put a bloody big grin on my face now!
The other models also look pretty great as well. Those Bomb-bots channel the RT vibe while also looking like they might well EXTERMINATE! their enemies for some reason, and I do like the flying Witch Elf as well, crazy as she is! :D
😊 Cheers matey, I was hoping you’d like the Beastmen – I had a blast painting them & can’t thank you enough!
The others were fun too, and yeah, a definite Dalek vibe to those BBs! 💥💥💥
No worries at all, Alex. Very glad about the whole thing! :D
