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,

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.

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

You've got me in the mood to paint Dreadball and Relic Knights stuff now.

Curious how your Space Hulk stuff turns out as well. Gives me hope I can slop some contrast on my old unpainted masses and finally put some of that stuff to use.

Flaming Shins though... I think the Flaming Lips actually toured with the Shins one year. Are you having concert flashbacks?

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Wow. Thank you all very much for the comments and compliments.

LTMW, I wound up shooting for an approximation of an older version of my Angels of Truth scheme. I am still a little skeptical of how it worked out, but the first Terminator is done and waiting for varnish.

Snrub, layers and patience are the best tips I can offer. Like the worn metals, it is all about building the layers.

Highlord, perhaps...

Made some progress. Flames are done on the shins, finished refbot and Striker (named Orchid Omega, I won't be using her as Wildcard at first, if at all.) Have settled on Holt Kazed as a name for my version of Number 88 as well.
Added some dreads to Blaine, or in my case acting-coach Kev Yautja. Also finished the test 'Stealer. I feel much better about him than the Terminator. We will see how I feel after painting a group of them. Pretty sure I just need to work with the Contrast a bit more. On the whole I like them. It is hard to not buy a bunch and dive into a bunch of "quick" projects hoping they will make it faster. Should probably pump my brakes. But all my Foundry Nymphs would be so easy with a bottle of Gulliman...

Pics.















And fluff:

"Well, fans, it looks like the Lexxcorp Kryptonites are a little sore about last year's loss in the finals to the Men of Steel and they have brought some new talent to the field. First up is man-of-mystery Holt Kazed. Nobody knows where he came from, nobody even knows what he looks like. What we do know is he is dynamite out there on the field and his moves are strangely similar to martial arts practiced by the priests of Pama and the monks of K'un L'un. His partner in crime (so to speak) is another rookie who goes by Omega Orchid. Like Kazed, her skills are undoubtable, her past is a mystery, but her blue-in-blue eyes suggest Arrakeen descent. Now, after what she did to the last interviewer who asked a little too pointedly about where she was from I know I won't be bringing it up, but there are whispers she could even be a Fish Speaker. Seeing as how they have not been spotted off-world for decades, that would really be a coup for Lexxcorp and may be the edge they need to finally clinch a championship!"

Thanks again, and thanks for looking!

Thank you!

I can't take credit for the freehand. I just dressed up a couple of transfers from the Renegade box. I am pretty jazzed with how it turned out and will certainly be looking to add a few more along the way.

MegaDave, I didn't go back and highlight any contrast-painted areas. It is probably just that the model is lit better in the finished pics. I found that the Terminator looked better in stronger light, too. Will have some pics of him soon-ish. And hopefully the rest of the Dreadball team.

The perfect edges gave the trabsfer away in the end and your post confirmed my suspicions. Nevertheless, really well executed. Fooled me on the first pass

Really? Then contrast is way better than I thought it was, or at least those colors are ace. I haven't really had a project to use contrast on yet, but that is making me think about starting one!
