Yeah, the suits are great, lots of details to them.

All three squads are now tabletop ready.

I'm thinking of adding another spot color. Probably to the head crests and to the chest emblem. Suggestions are welcome. Right now I'm leaning towards either a bone color or gold.

Also will probably try and use grass tufts for the first time once I pick some up this week.

Nice Troops Theo! Also, those DUST suits are pretty badass!

Think maybe the weapons could be a different color, that would help thing's pop a bit if that's what you're looking for.

I wanted to keep it matched, hopefully the pop comes from the ammunition and not the fashion sense .

Well, I took a chance with demonette skin for the accent color. I also used some Balthasar gold on the helmet and chest symbol.


The targeter drone bases are still wet, but will get matched to the squads.

Looking good.

GoA involves notably less models than 40k doesn't it? So that batch represents a fair chunk of army?

Well it depends on what size battle you want. As is I have 403pts of Algoryn, which isn't even a scouting force. The smallest battle is 500 points, but the starter sets (main box) has about 370points of Ghar vs over 500 points of concord. The game scales well with battle increments at 250 points each level. Each level gives more options, more strategic or auxiliary assets and more troops. The game we played was small and tactical which we enjoyed.

Thanks , here's a closeup of the purple and gold. Hopefully it helps.

Nice work.


I was wondering, is Beyond the Gates of Antares a skirmish game like Infinity? Or is it an straight up wargame like 40k?

The gold looks good, but it's hard to see the purple against the maroon. That might just be a function of my monitor, though.

Finally finished my LoER contest entry. With a couple of bonus Vanguard models as well..




Painting total as of 6/16/2019: 51 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 28 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit.

It is more of a mass battle game like 40k, from the same inventor too .

It's a really light purple in the center of their helmets, you may need to adjust your dials.

No progress, and little sleep, so just a fast answer session right now. I am still looking at what next to buy. While I like the ghar, I think Algoryn are probably the army to build up as I like how the paint turned out. Though I think I'm going to try some more color changes for the Concord to see if I fall for that trick. They are the most bulked out army right now with more models out and they are also the most populous army in the game.

So messing about with spare Concord guys, I still cannot find THAT color pattern which makes me say it's time to repaint all of what I've done so far. Also painted up one of the commie battlesuits. In DUST they call them turtles, I think they look more like Kermit the frog.

Just base colors for right now on the suit as I've been busy this weekend. All the black will get turned to gunmetals. I also went with a white colored star (ushabti bone) instead of red.

So colors for the Concord I'd like to stick with greens, or do greys (space nazis), but my creative juices are a bit hamstrung right now.

Thanks Dr. H.

Well spent more time trying to organize the hoard. While doing so I finally found my container of cocktail sticks. Silly that cocktail sticks held up a project, but I needed the tips to complete my Ghar flitter unit wings. One of the red cocktail sticks are across the bases to see what it started as. The flitters themselves are made up of spare heads from the Ghar units and some plastic rod tubing to make the jets. Four tips from the cocktail sticks make the wings and some guitar string to make the the tail and have it "flying"

While the unit may not seem important, it has a real practice use. The four flitters cost only 20 points. Which give the Ghar another action dice, and a unit to put their distortion dice on if we are unlucky enough to draw it for ourselves. Otherwise if the die is drawn for the enemy then I can actually use these guys to move forward and increase the hitting chance of the Ghar when shooting (possibly, as they are not very reliable).

Also mailman just dropped off my packages from warlord games. My Togg figure and my missing Lt Speirs. Pics later hopefully.

Toggs a big one he is.

Lt. Speirs from band of brothers will stay in his package until such time as I start an American army or find a loving home for him.

The closer I look at that commie walker, the more I want to invest in some DUST kits. I like the designs.

@oldravenman3025, the dust models are really great. Too bad PP just can't work a solid system or deal with a company that won't screw him over. Maybe CMON will be better for him.

Well Togg is mostly done. I need to work on the black of the gun and his armor plates and finish his base but otherwise I'm happy with what looks like a space cockroach with a big gun.

Well I picked up stirland mud and am trying it out on Togg's base. As well as trying it out on the bases of the guildball figs I recently got. I wanted to paint and I'm stuck on Beyond the Gates of Antares figs with finding a color I like, so I started to paint up the two guild ball mortician crew guys I have.

Bone Saw on the left and Ghast on the right. Skin will probably get one shade lighter as I see these guys as not getting out into the sun too often. Also going for darker and duller colors as I see them more as grave robbers than anything else. I know nothing about the game or the story, but that's how I imagine them. Clothes colors are only half way base colored.

Well BtGoA is sidelined for a while as I cannot decide how to expand or if I will expand the armies. So I guess this thread will instead become my painting thread, and the old one might just become my building thread, or should I just do it all here again and let the old thread move onto oblivion?

Either way the painting bug has got me again so I did a little more work on the guild ball morticians. Not sure if I'll ever buy into the game, but they are fun models for sure.

Bone Saw (not the Macho Man Randy Savage version )
[u]

At 43 years old I'm finally beginning to learn how to paint . A lot is because I'm taking the time to watch video clips online. I'll never be as good as some others here, but I'm feeling a lot better about my actual skills.

And Ghast



Both models have a long way to go yet, but they are a quantum leap ahead for me. I hit all the weapons with a single coat of leadbelcher, Bone Saw's blades just look different colors because of the angle the light is hitting it. Still need to knock down the color of the grass with agrax wash, it got too bright for my taste with the greens I chose and the tyrant skull dry brush.

I have not even seen this game played, I guess I'll go check out some YouTube vids

I've just googled the warhammerTV channel and started watching random vids by Duncan. Usually 2 minutes long on some basics. The biggest take away is thinning down the paints a bit.

At work right now, I'll be back later with more.
