Here are just a few 7tv bits I have done recently for our casts. I play 7tv with my 2 kids, and we like to invent our own shows.
The commandos are fro Agents of ACE. The other 4 are The fighting Four, from Fighting Force 10. The green headed guy is Gentleman Beast, one of the fours opponents.


More on the commados here: https://starshipvorenus.wordpress.com/2015/04/17/commandos/

Fabulous love them all. Especially the commandos. I really like the scheme you have done on Gypsy Diamond. I have recently converted that model into a Black Widow figure.

I second what everyone else says, fantastic show! Really like the Commandos too, that's the first time I've seen the Balaclava heads used I think, they look really good!

Thanks again! The Balaclava heads are really excellent. I saw a preview somewhere of some helmeted heads and gas mask heads that CD are bringing out too!
Two more. Couple of villains. OS guru with Ming style head. Minion captain, with beardy head from the guru spru.

Nice use of the extra head from the Guru sprue (and I wanted to say Guru sprue).

Liking Gypsy Diamond as well.

Been a while since I put anything on this thread.

Here are the first five of ten Zeppelin Troopers I'm working on, these will be doing the bidding of the Despotic Dictator Mr Crohne.

Minis are from the Pulp Figures range, all painted with paints from my box of paints

Lovely painting, on these and all the earlier minis.  Nice conversions too.

Or the scratch-build that inspired it:

That is a sight to behold! Amazing scratch build... the detail is incredible.

Thinking about a zeppelin... but not that ambitious (I live in a small house with limited storage!)

An interesting and imaginative cast and I really like the colour palette you have chosen for your troopers.  

I have admired those pulp figures for ages, but never thought of a using them for 7TV.

Just fill it with helium (or hydrogen if you're brave) and it will float up to the ceiling or loft until you need it. Lead figures make good ballast.

Very good painting of the Pulp Figures, I've a couple packs lurking in the lead pile.

Now they've knocked me down and taken it, that still hot and smoking gun.

In the spirit of keeping things to one thread I thought I'd post this here. The second robot, this is one is in a more US military Olive Drab.

I have recently been working on some urban terrain for 7TV, a car park and some piles of garbage/rubbish.

Sadly I've no printer, so it'd be useless to me, thanks for the offer though.

What a load of rubbish! - but in a really good way.  

I made my boxes by marking out a repeated 'net' on a brown manila envelope and cutting out with a scalpel. (Quick Google image search below)


The boxes were then assembled with small dabs of PVA glue:

Love the Zeppelin and love all the Hasslefree characters. I love the Soul patrol especially the sister's dress is that hand done?
