Hasslefree Post-Apoc Scoobies & Jayne Cobb

Hi, friends. I recently got the Hasslefree Miniatures Post-Apoc Scooby Gang and got them painted up. My son Mark also painted a Reaper Mini version of Firefly's Jayne Cobb. I did a little work on it to finish it off. I love these minis.
Here's Jayne first. I love the way Reaper made him with the cool hat from the Firefly episode "The Message".




I didn't include a close up of Fred. I need to fix his face some more.


I'll soon be working on the Armorcast Mystery Machine but will give it a Post-Apoc theme.

On an unrelated note I got a Continuous Ink Supply from CIS Inks. I had heard about it over on Morbious' blog. I've been wanting one for a while and got it hooked up and running today. I've got a bunch Of Stoelzel's Structures I still need to build and this should help a lot with that.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a great day out there.

Fantastic Work mate, Love the new scooby crew

Vampifan said...

As a big fan of both Firefly and Scooby Doo, I like all of these figures. Paintjobs are just spot on, Joe!

Jay said...

Nice job, LJ.

Mathyoo said...

I love the Scooby gang, brings out memories, hehe. Can't say I'm familiar with the first miniature, I'm afraid.

Anne said...

I've seen the Scooby Doo group and just love them. Nicely painted Joe!

Didn't he name his gun?

@BrutPaul: Thanks! I actually found a place that sells those hats. I think I found a Christmas present for one of my sons. :)

@Irqan: Thanks. Yeah, maybe all that painting practice helped. :)

@Brummie: Thanks. They are very cool. I'm so glad Hasslefree did them.

@Vampifan: Thanks very much. I was looking for some more of the Reaper minis for more Firefly folks, unfortunately they only have one more, Mal.

@Jay: Thanks, these fun to paint.

@Mathyoo: Thanks. The Scoobies bring me a lot of good memories, too. The first figure is a representation of Jayne Cobb, a mercenary and crewman of the spaceship Serenity. It was from the short-lived Firefly, Joss Whedon's Fox TV series.

@Anne: Thanks, I'm almost getting as good as you. Even though I've been painting about 20 years longer. :)

@Fran: Yeah, you're right. He named it Vera. Vera featured prominently in a couple of episodes. One cool gun. :)

Nice looking paint jobs!

Excellent looking figures, you just gotta love Scooby and the gang!!

Ironmonk said...

Looks great, Joe. Excellent work.

Lead Legion said...

Lovely stuff Lucky Joe. Now lets see em in a battrep.

PapaSpanky said...

Excellent paintjobs Joe! While it was a good episode and that hat became iconic for him, I still like the episode "Jaynestown" the best.

I really love these great job on the Scooby crew.

Stoelzel's Structures said...

I have been eyeballing these WIPs from HF and am jealous. You did a great job on the painting.

As for ink, I think you find the CIS helpful. I did the halfway upgrade and went with spongeless re-fillable tanks, and am happy with the change (though I do miss my old laser).

I need to get hold of the mas well.

Good job on these! Looking forward to the van.

Mecha Ace said...

Loving these, and who couldn't love Jayne's hat.

Rovanite said...

"Jayne!! The man they call Jaaynnee... He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor!" Love Firefly and that figure is awesome! Great paint work on the minis too :)

Anne said...

I just wanted to pop in and let you know you're missed out here!

We're about to get pummeled with the storm coming up after the hurricane. I'm sure you'll get it right after us. Stay dry!!

Great stuff!

Paul of the Man Cave said...

Awesome mini- I love that he has the hat and his very favourite gun 'Vera'! I have a hat exactly like that too BTW :-)

Lead Legion said...

Hey there lucky Joe. Been a while now. Just want to make sure you're doing okay?
