From the shed: Copplestone Scavengers.

Nothing like the promise of a game to get you painting again…


… with a game of Zone Alfa (game report coming soon) arranged with Joe I needed some figures so I rummaged in the shed to look for the Copplestone Casting minis I knew I had to make up a Bandit gang.

I knew that I did that post about playing Zone Alfa in 20mm, and I fully intend to do that at home, but a chance conversation at the club wher I mostly play Necromunda led to me finding that there were a few people interested in getting a campaign up and running.


Any way I churned these out over the weekend and I’m pretty pleased with them for a rush job.

    Mighty impressive for one weekend’s output, Pete!

    • Ann says:

      Yeah, that is quite a bit of painting for one week, I agree. They came out nice and dusty-looking and looking like they want to steal yer stuff!

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks Jeff. Got in the zone (pun intended) with these and just work at them in a couple of 2 hour sessions.



  2. Crikey, Pete, are they 20mm? Whatever scale, they look spot on! Well done! 🙂

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks John- they are 28mm figures. Should have said. Seems I game 28mm at the club with their terrain and 20mm at home with mine these days.

    So true, it’s my main drive for getting these things done! Nice work on getting those 20mms out quick. Looks like they would be a cool Necro gang to boot!

  4. Looking good Pete. I really do like the Copplestone miniatures.

    Hi, Pete:

    FYI, you probably should watch this video’s last five minutes or so, the after game review. They played two games into a campaign of Zona Alpha a discovered a massive issue with the campaign system. It should be food for thought.

      Thanks for that Sapper Joe- some interesting points raised there. The armour system looks a bit broken there. Will discuss with the lads on how to house rule it.

    Well done mate, you are powering away regardless of you heavy work load !!!

  7. Marvin says:

    Good work, I like them. You’ve brought out great textures and detail.

  8. Really nicely done – love the bases too!

  9. Really nicely done Pete, Mark Copplestone is one of my all time favourite sculptors. Digging the bricks scattered on the bases too.

    Cheers Roger.

    Awesome stuff – especially in such a short time to get them done. I recently found my own Copplestone-sculpted models from the various gang war ranges, and have one left to finish the details on my desk. Once again you’re making me want to start on more figures instead of finishing the half-painted ones!

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks. Fore every new one finish up a half painted one?

      Soon get them done.



      • Azazel says:

        My plan is to work on half-finished models a “tray” at a time, and then between trays I can reward myself by painting one unstarted cool “simple” model and one unstarted cool “complex” model. In terms of like an infantry model (including heroes) vs a tank or walker or monster, etc)

        Only about 32 models to go for the first tray to be done! :p

      • Pete S/ SP says:

        That sounds like a plan. I’m looking forward to seeing the uptick in your productivity. Got a few bits of scenery I seem to be stuck on atm. A good hour should see them done though. After that- the Van Saars get expanded.



  11. Not sure how I missed this post man. The minis look incredible. Well done
