Gwyn,

I echo JoshInJapan on the work on those soft plastic game figures. Difficult in the extreme.

Cheers,

CB

To you as well Captain Brown! The paint flakes off even as I’m painting them. I was rushing to get them done for the painting competition end of the month, so they’re not perfect. I’ll definitely have to go back and touch them up before I varnish the rest of them.

But, here’s the competition entry, such as it is.

Great work on the competition entry Gwyn, they’re a bright and colourful bunch, just how Iike my minis! There’s something about how their faces are sculpted that reminds me of Thunderbirds, or maybe Team America. Is number 6 the last of them?

Number 7 here is the last of them!

Her jacket is supposed to be a light blue-grey. I don't think this drybrush over the dark blue did the job... Might have to try this one again.

Very nicely done with all of them!

I agree that the jacket needs a bit more work.

realism is a lie

I think this is somewhat better! Just cleaned it up a little, and a dark blue wash to even it out.

Thanks Not Online!!! I'm much happier with the shirt. I finished the hair, undershirt, and lightened up the skin tone a touch. Seems like the best "generic non-tanned white person" is Cadian Flesh, then a contrast fleshtone, then reapply Cadian Flesh. Also got eyes. Serving face!

Painting can be really challenging with those soft plastic models and the reason I got rid of all my Airfix toy soldiers from long ago.

Went with really plain lower body. Black pants, white-grey shoes. I'm planning to do some fun liquid-in-vial effects for the first time on the Erlenmeyer flask, so I want that to be the focus.

So close to the end of these minis, and then I have a fully painted board game!

Well done on completing the set, your games will look great now. The shine on the researcher's flask came out really well and I like the eyes too

Great job getting the whole board game set done. And well done on the glass effects, they always allude me.

Continuing on the rusty ol' truck seems like a great place to focus on next.

Great group shot Gwyn, you need a game night now to get using them! I like how they’re all different heights, GW seem to make all their humans exactly the same height, so it’s a refreshing change!

I set up the board at least just for photographs. It's such a well-built edition, the cards, the box, the board, everything is gorgeous. I just hope my painting lived up to the production value of the rest of the game!

Truck truck truck!

From where we last saw this guy ages ago, I've given her a few good washes, base coated the bed of the truck, and base coated the silver and windows. I've also done the areas that are MODELLED as scratches or rusted patches with rust streaks, though I think i need to redo the streaking, it doesn't have the same variation in colour as it should.

Your Pandemic heroes look great on the board. Glad to see the truck back in all it's weathered glory.

Truck is coming along great, the rust and the normal color are contrasting nicely.

Thanks youwashock. It makes such a difference compared to having their grey plastic on such a vibrant board.

Thanks CB!

I hope so. I went over with some brown spot washes on the rust to try and get a little bit more colour variation in the rust, and I think I need to redo the streaking so it goes more brown-to-yellow, but I'm gonna do the other details first before I go back to the rust, see how I think then.

Speaking of other details, not much to show today. First coats on the various items in the truck bed, black wash on the and first coat on the tires. I think I want to knock out the wheels and tires, then finish the truck bed, then windows (aaaaaah, how do you do reflective windows at night!) then lastly see if the rust needs work.




Just realized looking at these pictures that the TOP of the rear bumper should be steel too, unpainted. I'll see if I can leave some of the rust pocks and just paint over the blue...

Thanks gobert! I'll have another look at it after some other parts are finished, see what I think then. Still leaning towards rusted iron rather than rusted paint.

Progress has been slow. Tires are done (base highlight wash), wheel hubs I did in iron with a black wash but I realize now they should be rather rusted.

And we have wheels! Thinned down browns and oranges may be "easy mode" rust weathering, but I'll take it! I also took the opportunity to put some mud on the tires themselves!
