So everyone wants to get to work on their Deadzone stuff ASAP, and a bunch of you (I'm talking about you, Grimdork!) have bought a bunch of Enforcers from Miniature Market in preparation for Deadzone. So who wants to show off their models for Deadzone? We've seen a bunch of painted models making up the N&R thread, as well as the current Deadzone completion thread, so lets all throw our pictures in this one to show them off. As the first poster, I'll of course grace you with my pictures of Iron Ma-, um, my Enforcers.

Looking really good there. I'm really going to have to think about how I paint mine. I was originally going to go for full squads of IM/WM/SC with no real plan of how to work it out but seeing how yours came out, I really like the way the WM ones came out. I might reserve the red and gold livery for characters or some such and the SC for elite squads or some such.

I might skip the Iron Patriot look though. Or perhaps again just for specific character(s).

The WM look was Boltgun Metal for the dark body parts, chainmail for gun and both were washed with badab black. After that, the light silver was added, which was mithril/runefang silver. The new paints work fine. The red was blood/Mephiston red. Very simple, but the contrasting silvers work well together. It also looks like the old War Machine toys I had when I was a kid.

The iron man and warmachine scheme is just awesome

My guys didn't come in today =/ so much for 1 day priority shipping, I guess I can't complain *too* much if they come in by tomorrow.

So soon I'll come back. Perhaps after I get them swapped to clear acrylics I'll post up some of my zombie marines, they'll be filling in for 3rd gens at least until I've got a strike team painted.

Glad you guys are enjoying them, I can't wait to paint up Howlett in yellow and brown armor. Might get a second for a variant yellow and blue armor too. Also, the guys with riot shields will be my Iron Patriot armored models.

Nice!

Now I'm super gutted to have missed out on the DZ KS... But I think I may have to cheer my self up with a box of Enforcers and dust off my paints!

Maybe Father Christmas reads Dakka and will update my list accordingly?!

Where's the gauntlet from? All the stuff on Mantic's site doesn't list any.

It comes with the corporation rangers. With the sergeants, specifically. I didn't have to do any green stuffing either, a nice clean cut and it attached and looked natural. If you want a left handed one, get the metal corporation hero, give him his sword arm and use the energy gauntlet for an enforcer. The sizes are pretty good in comparison.

I'd say its almost half as big. The restic one is a lot beefier. Still... maybe passable. You'd need a right handed pistol too

Speaking of conversions, what you're calling your TFU... how did you come about that design? Is there one in the kit that I don't know about, or did you just do a fancy chop job? I did several on my corporation marines, though it's looking challenging on the enforcer with the hands attached to the heavy rifle.

The tactical flamer comes with an assault squad-the one that comes with 4 metal blade/pistol arms.

Oh snap, I thought it looked too good to be a conversion but I wasn't sure

Well damn, I'm still gonna make one! Y'know, its funny... because they're actually calling that a fusion gun now... which is why I actually want to do one. I did it on the marines, surely I can figure something out here too.

I coulda sworn they called it a tactical flamer...whoops. I guess I'll change that to fusion gun later. I have 5 extra guys at home too-3 with assault blade and pistol to replace the fusion guns if I decide to save points and two burst cannons if I choose not to use the missile launchers (or add a second BC) in the basic strike teams when they're 10-man units. I aim to have all my non-DZ enforcers painted by Christmas and hope to show them off proudly.

Can't paint that fast unless i'm doing some kind of dip scheme, kudos for your speed

I'll paint the yellow on 2-3 guys at a time, let it dry, do the red, paint the gun silver, then badab black. Let that dry, dot of ice blue on the chest and bam. Done. I'll do 5-6 bases at a time later. Takes about an hr and a half to do 5 guys that way.

Honestly it looked like there was more work put in than that. I guess washes do wonders with recesses. They look good especially for how little time it takes you

Washes completely changed the game. They do such wonders and have sped up my painting tenfold. The Silver Centurian armor was runefang with a wash, khorne red and the blade was white with a carroburgh red wash. I think I described the War Machine paint style earlier too. All very easy, and I'm quite happy with the results.

Yeah those are nice. I'm a big fan of dipping but it actually takes a bit longer than washing as you've gotta go in after the fact and clear a lot of it away before it dries. Dipping is almost a wash/highlight combo though, and it makes the models super tough.

I think I'm gonna take it slower with my Deadzone stuff. Not quite as if I were painting Infinity models, but somewhat closer than table top speed painting. I kind of got a bit rushy with my last mantic models and want to slow it down a bit. We'll see though, I like finishing stuff and adding it to the done pile

Alright, your badgering has forced me to deploy a color scheme. View at your own peril for I'm not quite sold on it!




I think it may be too bright/colorful for grimdark hard scifi. Thinking of maybe going with mid-dark red armor plates and grey/black recessed armor, will try that on the next guy.

Looks good mate, a nice colour combination.

If you wanted to change its style, what about adding some kind of camo pattern to the black or yellow to make it look a bit more military-ish?

Looks good. I agree it may look a bit bright, which is fine but doesn't seem to be what you're going for. Red and black sounds good, I considered doing something similar but never got round to it.

The deadzone enforcer sculpts are definitely less detailed than the warpath ones. On the plus side this does mean I can get away with a slightly simplified (and, more importantly, faster) paint job without it being too obvious next to the old ones.

Wow. I hadn't seen them that close before. They do look different huh? I definitely prefer the DZ wristblade, it looks like it can come out of the wrist device and still retract, the WP looks like a static fixture which quasi-breaks what fluff we have.

WP enforcer looks chunkier overall, with nicer definition on the muscle-torso-armor-bit. Looks like you'd have to be even skinnier to fit into the DZ enforcer armor.

Still both are cool, and nice paint job, its simple, but that just means you'll have a bunch of them painted and ready to rumble sooner

Alright, I think I've got the scheme hammered out. This guy is a little rough around the edges as I just jumped in and did some correcting without removing the first layers of paint, I think he still looks alright though:




And here he is with one of my corporation marines.

I was in a bit of a hurry for this guy, the yellow on the squad markings needed more attention. I'm not sure if its a bit lame to have yellow for the eyes and squad markings, but I do like the yellow for the eyes. If I do any more assault blades, I'll take another look and try to get them a bit fancier.

Nice work on the Enforcer, GrimDork. Looks nice and dark next to the brighter Corp-Marine.

Interesting to see how different the WP and DZ enforcers look. I kind of like the sleeker, less cluttered look of the DZ ones, but I'm not sure washes will be quite as magic on them. Either way, I can't wait to get mine and have a play around with them.

I should be able to get some shots of my Enforcers and Corp marines up in here later today.

I like your Iron man inspired scheme TimeTW! I just did some Dreadball Corp in a similar scheme. Your Enforcer looks really cool Grim, I like how battered he looks, he aint fresh from the factory, he's been kicking arse for the Corporation! Good to see that an Enforcer painted with lots of metal looks good like yours Larva. then just that touch of blue makes it pop!
I wanted to wait until I'd finished a model, but there is just too much DZ buzz to resist. I wanted my Rebs to look abit Cyber Punk, with a sci-fi gang feel, so I've gone for yellow armour. I intend to put lots of scratches, blasts and mud on too!

Good God, man, the yellow looks good! I'm jealous of those painting skills. That reb looks very nice. Kudos for also having the first non-enforcer in the thread.

GrimDork, I don't know why, but I get an almost Spartan feel from your Enforcer, from Halo. They really don't look anything alike, but I still feel that way anyway. Great paintjob-he definitely looks like he's seen some battle!

Larva, you're right-those enforcers are definitely quite different looking. The new ones will still get the Iron Man treatment though. Haha. Love the silver look with just a splash of blue highlight-looks nice.

Nice shading on that armour. I think the yellow works well and has a definite look of "yes I am wearing high-tech ceramic armour - you should have brought a bigger gun"

Grim, I like the grimy "I've been in the field for a looong time" look on your enforcer. Plus it's always good to see clear bases in use (i'm too messy with the superglue to use them).

The other major difference I've seen between the DZ and WP enforcers is the DZ ones have much less pronounced jump jets which contributes to their overall look of being less bulky and imposing. I still like 'em though and they are close enough for mixed units to look ok. Also the sniper model is really nice. Going to do him next I think.
