Just a minor update while I consider whether to brighten up the gold; brightened up the silver bodies to match my other minis.

Only basing left to do! Oh, and I should put a gloss coat on the jewel on the one guy's head, tbh. This last step I just finished was doing the green icons, and the OSL. Should I do more OSL around the eyes?

Spoiler:


Because the bases are already covered in that silver grit, I'm just gonna paint the silver grit to try and match my existing bases.

Thanks Captain! These guys were alright, the blades came out fantastic, but the next mini is promising to be one of my best!

It's really quick and easy: a drab green for the uniform, an olive green for the accoutrements. A variety of washes give it a realistic and varied tint. Then just need to do the skin, boots, and the various Red Cross symbols. Oh no... more practice doing faces and eyes I guess!

I'm so happy with how the Medic came out! Definitely ready to cure some pandemics. You're needed out there right now buddy! I went with a more 'Nam style uniform than the modern camo, mostly because it was easier to do, and because two-tone green and olive is a very recognizable colour scheme. I free-handed the red cross on the bag, so it's sliiiightly wonky, but not wonky enough that I'm not super pleased with it.

But most of all, I think the face came out amazing. The eyes especially! I had some trouble with the lips (I hate painting lips so much), but the eyes actually weren't that difficult!

I'm realizing now that there are dog hairs EVERYWHERE. My dog is shedding his undercoat all in one go because the weather went to winter to summer without ever passing through spring, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for it not to get stuck to every mini I paint. So it's just gonna have to be that way.

Nice work on the medic, even with the odd dog hair . The free hand cross looks pretty good to me. I find circles harder, but you seem to have got yours pretty neat

Alright, next project: this truck from the 10th anniversary version of Last Night on Earth, the pulpy zombie board game. You can see some of the zombies from that game that I did further up in the thread. Lots of new stuff planned for this guy, including my first big airbrushing project. I've masked off windows (including creating a missing rear window) in preparation for a rust undercoat on the metal that will be used for salt-chipping.

Trucks piqued my interest.

Also the medic seems as stated above a bit lonely

I'm very excited for this truck for two reasons... I tried my hand at salt weathering last year(good but not great) and have been itching for another go, and I love that game. I bought the original from the designers' booth when they premiered it at GenCon many years ago. So I'll be following your work!

@Captain Brown and Not Online!!!: While I don't think a LoER piece is gonna happen, if I finish the truck in time I can do the Medic's other player-piece companions for the Dakka Painting Competition "Support" theme. I mean, one of them is literally a radio dispatcher, you don't get more "support" than that!

@Macphail: It's such a good game! The minis are decent too, albeit in a soft plastic that's hard to paint. I really should find some of the expansions to add to my box.

And we have rust!

Spoiler:


First airbrush attempt worked really well. It was super easy to get smooth gradients and transitions between colours. Only a little bit of spluttering and spattering, and I honestly don't care about that for this project. I have this guy salted, and as soon as I get around to it, it'll get a nice blue coat of paint!

   
Made in ca

And we have blue!

Lessons learned for next time: Be more careful in where you place the salt. Try and get it on the edges of surfaces and less in inner corners. Need more bright variation in the rust too. Some of that will come in a minute when I paint in more highlights, so I can fix that up. But not the worst first attempt I've seen.

Nice job on the salting - inner corners are fine, as water would collect there to aid the rusting, and can always add a bit of sponging on the edges.

Thanks everyone! I decided to try the painting challenge this week after all, so the truck is going to be pushed back a touch as I finish the other Pandemic minis. Will return to the truck first! So you saw the Medic earlier, here are five of the other 6 player characters: the Operations Expert, the Dispatcher, the Quarantine Specialist, the Scientist, and the Contingency Planner. There's also a Researcher. You can also see the portraits and physical descriptions that I will be using to try to keep my painting scheme close to canon.

And the Dispatcher is done! 4 more to go for the contest! The blue shirt was a tiny bit of my lightest blue mixed into the Apothecary White Contrast, and it went on like a dream! The jeans are just a very thin coat of the Leviadon Blue Contrast paint; a super easy and quick way of painting blue jeans!

I'll get a shot of him alongside his reference card to use later. The official photographs will wait until the whole gang of 5 competition minis are done (or however many I end up doing).

Here he is, next to his reference image. Pretty spot on! Skin colour is darker than in the image, but pretty much all my skin tones have been coming in really dark so that'll have to do.

impressive.
have you attempted a rather small drybrush of white to lighten the skin a bit? That can and has sometimes helped me when the skin colour that i use /used was too dark.
