From the Shed: Even more Stalkers for Zona Alfa.

I wanted to paint up some Stalkers in a specific camo pattern, namely the Russian ‘Partizan’ scheme… that was all the excuse I needed to get a set from Pig Iron Productions that I had been coverting.

Here they are again in threes. I went for a sniper rifle a light machine gun and three AK style assault rifle, the dog is so I can try out some of the optional rules I got from facebook.

I also had a few more Cold War figures from Under Fire Miniatures that I converted- again using Pig Iron parts.

You may have noticed that I didn’t take these pictures outside on my backdoor step… I got a light box for xmas and this has made taking the photos much easier, especially in these wetter and darker months. I did print out a stone texture picture from google to use as a backdrop which I think works quite well.

    Great work! They look excellent, and I didnโ€™t know they made Stalkers so Iโ€™m definitely going to look at getting a set now.

    The camouflage looks convincing, definitely right for this scale. Is your Zone the default Chernobyl setting?

      Thanks you very much. The are great figures really. I do like the details like the slung gasmasks.

      I’ve gone for the classic Russian setting for my games. I’m a sucker for the post- Soviet aesthetic.

    The background does look great and shows up the figures perfectly. Great work on the figures. I will have a look at the Pig Iron Productions figure range as well.

    Just had a look at Pig Iron Productions and love their “Kolony Feral” range – “shiny stuff must have”!!!

  4. They all look really good, Pete! ๐Ÿ™‚ The light box and printed background work well – I just thought we were maybe getting a closer view of the step!

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks John. The step will remain in use for the bigger items. The light box will do a 1/72nd scale tank I’d say but would struggle with anything bigger.



  5. Looking good Pete. The Camouflage looks great.

  6. Azazel says:

    I really like the detail and camo on these Russians. Please do show us the light box in a future post as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. These look great, I really like the dog, and the bases work really well for them.

  8. Jeff Groves says:

    Great work there, Pete!

  9. Those are outstanding miniatures.Great work my friend:)

  10. Very nicely done, a great bit of camo there (I do like a bit of camo!), and nice work on the German Shepard too.

    Cheers Roger.

  11. Liking these. A bit of a fan of the Pig Iron figures so nice to see them being used in an off beat scenario.

    Very nice โ€“ great work on the camo. Iโ€™ve always struggled with lightboxes so I use my own, jury-rigged set up โ€“ would be curious to see what youโ€™re using when you get around to it as I always have a sense that there must be a better way! ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. Marvin says:

    That’s a pleasing camouflage scheme, nicely done. The dog’s a great little figure too.

  14. Good looking figures and love the camo.

  15. Nice paint jobs Pete. The light box is working well too. I am like Azazel in that the one that I use (if I use one other than my spray booth or a game set up) is a cardboard box with black fabric – which has not been always easy to work with.

    The backdrop works a treat, Pete. Your setup is very crisp too. I need some lessons! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Regards, Chris

    I though the stone cover had changed, I will miss her! HA HA ! Neat work on theses ones Pete.

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Don’t wory Pat- bigger items and full armies will still be on the stone outside. Plus I’ve a few older pictures I’ve yet to put up so keep an eye out.
