I set this up so that I can ramble on about my lead (and plastic) mountain, my endless gaming, miniature, and terrain projects, and other

insights into various games.

You'll find lots of 'pretty pictures', various modeling techniques, and hopefully some inspiration for your own lead pile. You're bound to

find something amongst my games and photos that interests you.

Sit back, open a cold one, and enjoy.

20mm Modern Private Contractors

Here are some of my recently completed 20mm Private contractors (aka Blackwater) and all of the hardware at their disposal.

These guys you might recognize from the 1980's.  Can you name them all?
When I found the Hotwheels vehicle on the shelf this year, I had to get it.

These 'not A-Team' contractors, Fire team 'Alpha', are from Elheim Miniatures. http://www.elhiemfigures.com
From left to right you have Col. Smith, B.A. Baracus, Templeton Peck ("Face"), and H.M. Murdoch.

Here's the whole lot of my contractors and their assets.  The 12 metal miniatures are from Elmheim Miniatures. The two left most Dumvees are from Corgi Diecast. The black, Hardtop Dumvee is a Resin model.  The Humvee on the right is a Dragon, Can Do model.   In the background on the left is a Forces of Valour 'Little Bird'.  On the right is a cheap plastic army man pack helicopter ($1 for the whole pack) painted in Blackwater colors.  

Fire team 'Bravo'. 

Fire team 'Charlie'. 

Another look at the cheap helicopter. (Though I do need to make and attach a tail rotor.)

    Can you tell me where you found these/who produces them

  2. The Contractors and A-Team are from Elheim miniatures. They are a combination of the three packs of 'Special Forces; Veteran Advisors, Fireteam #2, and Fireteam #3."


    The cheap plastic stuff is from 'Target' in the $1 section at the front of the store.
