Thanks for all the kind words all, something less pretty this post

Plague marines & Zombies

These were mostly finished last year but I’ve put the finishing touches to them now.



Had a go at the white/bone armour and really liked it so my death guard will be a mix of Green and white armour.







This is chaos after all so the scheme should be a bit chaotic

Zombies done too




Thanks for looking

Wow , everyone is coming up with some great DG paint jobs and this one is excellently done as well. Unique choice of colors. These models really have such potential.

Brownstone building & End to my AvP saga

From TT combat, i bought it to so i didn't have to draft my own facia template for some buildings I'm going to scratch build.






I like it

I wish there were stairs in the interior but its nice, big, cheap and cheerful.


Also FINALY after almost 5 years I've got the last of my AvP kickstarter stuff



If your still missing stuff, i contacted their customer service email and missing item email address and eventually got through to a person then took 7 weeks for the order to process but its done!

Great looking Escher juve there. But why the deadly viper squad? Why not the cuddly Viper squad, or the not as toxic as a mamba but still really dangerous viper coalition?

Brownstone looks great too. I want to do a whole table like that, but I’ll probably be using the dust tactics buildings instead.

How did you go about painting the cement between the bricks in the Brownstone building ?

Painted the lines with watered down light grey then

Tidied the bricks up with a combination of sponge and drybrushing to recover the raised area with black then followed the same process with burnt umber again. The spongeing will help add a little texture to the MDF too

WIP Star Saga - Corporate Security



Nothing finished since the last post :(

Tried to knock out the corporate security guys from Star saga but only got to just after base coat stage.
Now I’ve put some paint on them I’m a lot happier with the amount of detail in the minis.

Aiming for a posh security look, white shirt and grey trousers, with black tactical gear.

Thanks for looking CnC appreciated

That Xenomorph is great! The shine on the head turned out well.

I didn't want to Thread Necro your other blog, but I really like those civilians you have lined up for the Kitty Booth, where did you find them? I'm playing in a Dark Heresy campaign and it's always hard to find unarmed models.

The minis are from the colony87 kickstarters https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/62661939/return-to-colony-87-28mm-sci-fi-civilians


There’s a 3rd Kickstarter coming this year
https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/759810.page

Unfortunately it doesn’t look like he will have the old minis up for grabs again.

You've made a nice start on those models. They look like they'd work in any number of settings as well. Have you played the game? I pledged $1 to the kickstarter, but decided that I didn't need another game I probably wouldn't play. Now that I've finally gotten around to trying Dungeon Saga, I regret that decision.

Now showing more Mantic dwarfs, and also some hills!




Painting total as of 10/17/2019: 119 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit and two hills.

I agree with Josh about being able to use those in lots of different genres.

I’ve stayed away from Mantic for some time. I keep seeing some great models from their lines, but also a few misses and the delays seem to continue from them. Until Mantic gets it all together I think I’ll keep away until the items hit retail.

How is the overall game experience? Is it smooth and intuitive? Or clunky because it’s trying too hard.

Not had a proper go at star saga yet but the rules read like a more shooty based dungeon saga and Ive really enjoyed dungeon saga, even the girlfriend likes playing it.

I want to get star saga all painted up before I play it to motivate me to actually paint it all

I'll have to look into that kickstarter, thanks for the info. I like the security guards a lot, the white shirts black armor scheme really 'pops' and screams 'private security', particularly the shoulder patches, they go a long way to completing the look.

Getting those security guards done inspired me to get some test Corporation Rangers painted.


Wanted them to look like the martian marines in the Expanse

You hit your mark with the Rangers- spot on! The knight looks to be coming along nicely as well!

Grid Xenomorph

To celebrate the last of my AVP kickstarter coming in, I picked up a few more Xenos from eBay at clearance prices.

Going to try to make the 5 infant Xenos i picked up into “character” Xenomorphs, like 6 from the AvP Game and the one I've done here Grid from the AVP movie.



giant pics spoilered
Spoiler:





“Nothing down here Central”

Spoiler:


The AvP predators an Xenomorphs will be a quandary for me going forwards, i love the minis their great but i really dislike Prodos games or archon whatever their calling themselves this week.

Thanks for looking C&C very much welcome

Love the corporate security guards - great work! Lovely combination between being individually characterful and generic enough that they could fulfil a bunch of scifi roles. Particularly like the stubble / hair on the gent with no hat - makes him look very real.

Nice glow effect on the grid xenomorph. I've not played that game - has the poor bastard walked into a security field or something?
