youwashock,

Yes, you are back doing some oop elder.

Very nice work on the heat stressed stacks of the Knight. Was that several migrating layers of dry brushing?

Cheers,

Thanks, Captain. The heat stress is all done with inks. A brown/yellow mix, purple, blue, and finished off at the top with Nuln Oil.

Always a treat coming back here, so much different stuff going on. Fire Dragon is coming on nicely, looking forward to the whole squad. New demonics look great, particularly the heavy weapons guy with the radar. I'm most looking forward to that knight though, it's going to be awesome when it's done

Thanks, Maharg. I hope to be able to focus more on the Knight and Dragons over the next couple weeks. Time has been even shorter than usual. Busy with life, but got a few models finished.

First up is Suicide Queen, finally done after being started about two years ago.







Weird model to take pictures of. Not really a good angle to be had. But she's done and now her poor doggie can finally get that bone.

Also finished up two of the three ninja girls for use in Shadows of Brimstone. Wanted these done in a week, took closer to three. Just no time to make a whole lot of progress, but a little is always better than none. Working with these gals and the Dreadball models has reminded me how much I love this plastic. In that I don't. Could be worse, but this generation of models is being done no favors by it. Quick, serviceable paintjobs, models are fun, decent sculpts, still deciding what to do with the third model from the set, that for some reason looks very different and has an atrocity for a head and a sprig for a sword.







And a shot of one of the ladies in-game, leading the charge against a Goliath. Party dropped all of its buffs as soon as it stuck its head out of the portal. Add in some favorable dice and the poor thing never stood a chance.



Thanks for looking!

youwashock,

Painting models always takes longer than we plan...it is like one of the laws of painting model figures.

Really like all of these, but Suicide Queen's doggy is my favourite, cool stuff. I get what you are saying about resin plastic. There was a hope that it could have been the next thing in miniatures but the mold lines and bendiness just killed it.

The dog looks cute. I like it's little helmet. Great model and nice to paint I can imagine.

_Love_ the Suicide Queen, her dog and the Assassins- great figures and the painting is well executed.

Ah, lot's of good stuff!

I've been stalking all tje time, but as time has been short I have not managed to find the time write responses.

Always enjoyable to come here. As I've said it and will probably say a few times again: I love the variety.

The effect on the Knight's exhaust pipes looks awesome! Good job with those girls too.

What is this? Soda pop miniatures with faces . The few I’ve seen have all had far to little detail for anyone to do a decent paint up. Well done

Thank you very much, everyone! Glad you like them.

Yeah, Relic Knights was a real mixed bag, quality wise. As far as faces go you really need a light touch, or be ready to just fill in the blanks yourself.

Painted a little. Dreadball guys this time. These went pretty fast for me, and I hope to keep that up and get my teams done and out of the way for more involved projects like the Knight. But they are fun little models and make for a satisfying diversion. Material aside. LOVE those mold lines. Pics.









Agent 88 and a Jack for my human team, the LexxCorp Kryptonites, or 'Nites for short. 88 was one of the models that almost got me to pledge for the initial KS. Just dig the model, so he gets to be a Striker stand-in. Wildcard is the other model I really liked, and she is being painted now. Using the MVP models breaks up the look of the team a bit. And if I wind up playing the game much I figure my opponents won't mind the off-team models. Need to get these guys done, then it is time for space turtles. Also put in some time on the Knight and the Dragons and even laid a little more putty on the Avatar. Progress is progress.

Thanks for looking and thank you again for the compliments!

You have really brought out detail on those Dreadball minis, which is amazing having owned some I remember them having very limited detail. As for the material, yep restic mold lines are (well were, have not dealt with it for a while) an absolute pain to clean and even spot before you have laid some paint down. I think my favourite thing about the Dreadball range as a whole are the clear hex bases and the big guy players.

Thank you!

The shine is just a quick hit of Future after varnishing.

You know what I need? More projects! Decided I wanted some more Zoats. Saw some offered here, but it was a little too rich for me so I hit eBay and found a lot of 6 that was willing to take what I was willing to pay. Maybe should have taken a closer look at the pictures, because after I got them it became rather apparent at least 4 of them were recasts. 4 came with paint on them, and those four had extra mold lines, softer detail, and downright slag in some areas. They shared common defects, and had mold lines in places that authentic models did not. Sadface. However, I was able to get a datisfactory amount of money back after discussing the situation with the seller, and since I had already spent a decent amount of time stripping and cleaning these things, by thunder I will make them work. Part of the plan is to convert a unique leader, since there is not a whole lot of variety in the range. Here's his parts after a taste of the Dremel.



Too many models, too little time. Hope to knock these guys out quick, too. Thanks for looking! Shop smart!

I'm eager to see more Zoats, even if the purchasing was a little disappointing. I'm sure you'll make them look great. Looks like I missed a few updates - love the Suicide Queen and the Dreadball guys. Very nice work for a quick paintjob!

Thanks, guys! Always good to see the Zoat love.

Parts assembled, GS in progress. Couple quick WiP shots.







Need to reconnect the power cables, add a few details and a couple armor plates, and he will be ready for priming. Dreadball, Knight, etc. still in the works, as well.

GS work all done. Fairly satisfied with the results. Should blend in pretty well after painting.









Think the headpiece and the gems came out the best. Onward to priming.

He should crush some opponents on the dreadball field. Will you have enough for a full team? If so which faction would they stand in for? Terratons perhaps. I’ll know they are old rogue trader models, but I find it fun to use GW models in a game that’s a GW knockoff .

Greenstuff looks good and primer hides any imperfections, which I don’t see any.

Also my son has started to call his cat Thanos now since the second infinity war movie .

These aren't for Dreadball, just collecting. It would be neat to have a Zoat team, but positioning would be troublesome. I will have to content myself with the Teratons. (Spoiler: Teratons coming soon!)

You must have been gutted with the recasts, at least you and the seller were able to come to a sensible fiduciary resolution. You have also done a bang up rescue job.

Dreadball wise I am very interested to see how your Terratons turn out, nothing wrong with a ball playing group of giant future space terrapins.
