Time for a bit more non GW:

Just finished painting up all of these Koralon for Void (which may be coming back), these recently got made available again from Seb Games but these sculpts have got to be at least 20 years old by now.

I like the Green/purple colour scheme on these. Very Hulk.

They also have some funky looking weapons.

Cheers. Was going for more Devastator/Scorponok vibes (particularly the former with the very bright green), but Hulk works too.

Brilliant showcase Rinkydink! Liking the orks.

Nice paints Grimtuff. Are those metallics or canny highlighting?

I specifically went with using zero metallics on those, wanted to see if I could and have everything be natural. They're undercoated black then the coral parts are based warboss green and highlighted with vallejo yellow green and washed with CDA green ink. The flesh is vallejo royal purple then a drybrush of that mixed with valljo bronzed flesh then pure bronzed flesh. Weapons are vallejo medium sea grey then highlighted with vallejo Iraqi sand. Whole thing was then washed with Druchii violet and certain bits highlighted up again like the coral to get that lovely bright green like a Constructicon.

Always loved these minis, it was those that broke me out of the GW ecosystem (cannot remember what happened to my original ones, sod's law says I'll find them one day) so when I found Seb Games had them in production again I snapped them up PDQ.

Great job on the Eversor! Love the liquid effects on his drug compounds and the scanner/scrambler bit on his back.

I took my battles very seriously


If you ever play with "that guy" remember this :
"there may be times when you are not sure exactly how to resolve a situation that has come up during play. When this happens, have a quick chat with your opponent and apply the solution that makes the most sense to both of you (or seems the most fun!), If no single solution presents itself, you and your opponent should roll off, and whoever rolls the highest gets to choose what happens."

Love seeing those old rogue trader beakies. I almost managed to get my hands on an unopened box of them for around $50.00 but some scalper outbid me in the last second of the sale. Saw it relisted later for almost $300.00. I think I was most offended that he didn't even want to open them up and put them together...
