So TimeToWaste had a great idea with his deadzone/warpath thread, but what about the rest of our Mantic goodies? I realize most of us don't have Mars Attacks yet but I wanted to show a couple of things off and then I figured we could use the thread for Kings of War, Dreadball, anything that didn't fit in with the other thread. It's always nice to see everyone's models, a source of inspiration for sure. I'll raise you these:

Most of my KoW armies are made up of other companies' products (mostly Citadel) and so I don't have a lot of Mantic stuff actually painted. These have been seen before, but WTF, right?

I like this idea, and it will give me the kick in the pants I need to finally document all the stuff I've painted since the KoW KS stuff arrived. In the meantime, here's a very bad shot of my first unit of Orcs:

Ok, so here's a Big Mech I did, quite fond of how he turned out, despite forgetting I wanted to paint yellow until after I'd primed him black



I have a test paint of an Ogre warrior, still not sure



and this is the Corporation team plus referee, but it's from before I got my current lightbox setup so not the best pictures







That month was an "add hair to your mini" challenge, so it's my first attempt at greenstuff modeling - the Infinityesque ref hair, and the Fu Manchu moustache on the Guard

A savage looking unit of Orc Boyz, Josh ...and is the leader wearing a top hat?

Nice work also, NT (or should I call you Rabbit?) The Ogre looks almost demonic with the deep red skin and glowing green eyes.

Rabbit is fine, and thanks! He's got red skin, and then I wanted to see if I could achieve some kind of rough, dirty colour and texture, so I painted his skin with Typhus Corrosion. I think it mostly captured what I was looking for.

Nice stuff people. I like the elf boss, definitely looks like he's commanding or something.

Yup. They looked a little too naked, and I can't see savage lycanthropes taking the time to manscape before a battle.

Nice work, Josh. The Boar Boyz look great, as do the Werewolves. Still not a fan of the Trolls, but what can you do? The manscaping comments remind me of Steve Carell.

On the right is my second painted martian, 4 more will be joining those two in completion tomorrow (gotta dip and then wait for tomorrow to seal). I think I remembered the colors for once, I tweaked the skin a bit to make it a little greener.


he isn't 100% done, still needs to be dusted with the matte sealer, but the guy on the left is how I'll be painting my MA US soldiers. He's chilling with one of my corporation marines as they'll be doing duty together on various fronts, and this is why they're matched in scheme. May do a little white over the top once he's sealed, so the white pops just a bit more like the non-dipped marines.

Nice. What are you dipping them in?

Minwax polyshades. Tudor specifically. Basically a rich muddy black-wash that includes a gloss clear-coat, but requires a matte coat to balance it out.

Huh, my buddies use Minwax Tudor, and I tried it since it's so cheap, but I found it to be much clumpier than AP Dark Tone. AP Dark Tone + Anti Shine spray is still my favorite combination.

Yeah that AP shade stuff might be pretty nice, especially for fancier models. Haven't felt like dropping the cash on it when the other works pretty well.

Forgot I had a few more Martians and a soldier finished

Better pictures at some point, still trying to decide if I wanna do clear acrylics or just dress up the stock bases since these are 'game pieces' first.

Man, I really gotta finish painting my werewolves and put them in this thread.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Hey GrimDork,

Are those Martians done? If so, are you going to put helmets on them? It'd be interesting to see some painted Martians with the plastic domes on.
   
Made in us

Yeah they're done (except I gotta figure out something for bases).

But I've got no domes. It was a kind of a thing that happened to a lot of the GenCon pickups. They rushed the boxes out so they could bring them to the States and a lot of the dome-baggies got missed in the rush. Anyone missing them will supposedly get them in their actual MA shipment (if they reported it of course).

As soon as I have them, I'll take the photos
