Dreadball teams coming on nicely and always good to see more zoats

Thank you, guys.

LTMW, I was a little salty, for sure. But I will make of it what I can. I won't likely be reselling, so I won't have to keep it in mind to add a disclaimer that part of my collection is bogus.

A little progress. Started a couple zoats, but they aren't much to look at yet. Real life has reared it's its ugly, intrusive, hobby-disrupting head in a big way. But I push on. Dreadball stuff today. A guard and jack for the 'Nites, and an MVP who is most likely going to stand in for a guard on the Teraton team, as I have somehow wound up with an imbalance between guards and jacks. Figure an enhanced armored guy will fit in ok with the big turtles. Maybe I will call him Champion. Stopped short of painting a glowing purple hand.

Pics.









Hope to have more soon. Thanks for looking!

youwashock,

Sorry to hear about the recast Zoats you ended up with.

Dreadball figures are looking nice.

Cheers,

I really enjoy that green / purple color scheme. Purple parts especially look really good!

The purple and green are really striking, but that grey looks like a wonderful urban camouflage pattern .

Keep up the great work.

Thank you, fellows. Muchly appreciated.

Stuff happening. Lots of jumping around. Finished Wildcard for Dreadball, but no pics until after varnishing. Three more models and the human team is done. And some cheerleaders. And a coach. Ok, they are almost done. Some WiP shots.



Zoats.



Flaming shins. Sounds like a band.



My stack of DB stuff did not include a ref. Since I like this model but had no real use for it, he's my guy. Looking for a black with grey edgelights, some red. Nice threatening refbot.



Figured out what to do with the last ninja girl. New head, old ponytail, new claws, old tengu mask cut off and stuck to the belt. Thinking about calling them the Oishiikage ninja clan.

And now to the interesting stuff. Been feeling a ton of curiosity about Contrast, and went and did this:



I bought Space Hulk 1st ed when it came out, and 2nd marked down many years later. Never painted the Genestealer. Tried, but never found a way I liked that could be done quickly. Seems like a good time to try again. Test models primed:



And a start:



I think it will work when it is done. I figure in the time it would normally take to basecoat, the model is almost done. Jury still out, and I am curious to see how the marine goes, but I am optimistic.

More soon. As always, thanks for looking!

The flaming shins are very well executed- I like that look a lot. I look forward to their album coming out.

The Flaming Shins were one hell of a band, their 1979 compilation album "The Flaming Shins: The Shingles" was seminal. Looks really good, is the Knight a Freeblade or something else?

Interesting with your Contrast experiments, Tyranids as a whole are made for the line. Any particular chapter you are going for with the Terminator? Also thanks for rekindling memories of that classic initial metal Terminator boxed set.

I knew I'd heard of them before- just couldn't place it- they did the solo track for DanShin with the Stars last week!

Ah first edition Space Hulk...the Terminators were so ghastly I painted up two of the metal sets to provide terminators for my group. We still have the mono-posed Genestealers in two of the groups armies.

Hey YWS.
Those flaming shins are awesome looking. Any tips for painting flames like that?

I'm interested to see how you get along with the contrast paints as well!

The flaming shins look amazing! I also really like the ninja girl, the head swap is a nice choice. A very nice start on the genestealer as well

Awesome shins! Really cool looking flames.

I too am intrigued how the terminator will turn out. The genestealer is looking promising, those contrast paints seem tempting
