    Grenadier miniatures collection painting project in progress! With pics!

    BY THE POWER OF...LEAD!!! No wait, that's not right...

    And his evil duplicate - Faker!

    First of many minis to come! All of these painted by Bryan Mitchell of XPainting. Great guy and a terrific painter! He is also tackling some customs for me - turning some of these into Clamp Champ (MAA version), Moss Man, Stinkor, Zodak and Disco Skeletor!

    Then he is making an Eternia display landscape board that has room for the Grayskull and the minis to be displayed on it! I'll keep posting pics of the project if people are interested!

    Eventually, I'll display these with the Icons Grayskull, which is waiting on a shelf all by itself right now...

    WOW! He did a great job painting those!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I'm glad people are enjoying the pics! I linked Bryan to this thread, hopefully he can see how his wonderful work is being appreciated.

    Arkangel, I originally tried posting this to that thread with the other wonderful pics but no one seemed to see it so I started a new one. That thread BEGAN with the minis displayed with Icons Grayskull and that is where this thread will FINISH! Hopefully, it will be a fun trip! I am especially looking forward to the Attak Trak (with magnetized treads) and the customs, including a flocked Moss Man!

    We're getting the band back together!

    The one with the Havoc Staff (back right) is easily my favorite (one of my favorites in the entire collection) and Bryan has an extra of him to become...DISCO SKELETOR!!!

    I've been having a lot of fun painting these. Brings back fond memories, and has me watching MOTU again.

    After over a year of searching, I just closed a deal that SHOULD score me the LAST three figures to complete this collection!

    --- the limbless Skeletor body/head that is the Talon Fighter pilot
    --- the Skeletor with sword raised (like in the pic above) but with no base meant to be a rider for Panthor

    and the best find...

    --- the EVIL-LYN that rides Panthor also and was only available in the huge Evil Warrior boxed set! VERY excited and I hope Bryan will work his painting magic on these as well!!! Just those three - the others are extras.

    She is here! The collection is now complete with the half-body Talon Fighter pilot Skeletor, the baseless, Panthor-rider Skeletor and the EVIL-LYN!!! Her picture in the Org merch section has a question mark! Admins, if you want pics to confirm she exists, feel free to use mine!

    That's how I feel about my MOTU collection as a kid. All that survived was a Crocobite Meteorb and I have rebuilt my entire collection from there!

    These miniatures are weird for me - I remember seeing them as a kid but didn't like that they were unpainted. So I passed. Grew up, graduated college twice, got married, etc etc and when I decided to rebuild my MOTU collection, I ran across these and REALLY liked them this time. Of course, by then my other hobby was a miniatures game called Blood Bowl so now these Grenadiers were DOUBLY intriguing to me! Been collecting them ever since!

    I have almost three full sets (minus the ultra rare Evil-Lyn, only one of those) and the collection just keeps growing!

    BTW, love your avatar and screen name! I LOVE all things TRON!!!

    Even more defensive measures,

    Didn't glue the guns down thought it was more fun to be able to move them up and down and make pew pew sounds.

    I agree that not gluing them was the way to go! They look just like mini versions of the Grayskull toy!

    He-Man is probably tired of walking everywhere so how about a ride.

    Same figure just different views.
    Wish there was a Kringer figure, he was always one of my favorites for some reason.

    I have some non-MOTU minis that I have customized to look like characters not represented in this Grenadier line. I imagine it would be relatively easy to find a young tiger mini from some nature line and paint him up as Cringer! I will add it to my list!

    Battle Cat looks amazing!
