Yeah,
Who are the Doom Team? No one knows for sure...
But it's rumoured that when the Maelstroms Edge is real close and a Planet is in it's final stages of breaking up Epirian management send in a Doom team if stuff needs doing!

So here's the Plan.
I'm going to turn squads of these guys ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ---> Into squads of these guys! ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓


Easy!
All my guys are all going to be painted green and wear Pig Iron helmets.

I split two starter boxes of ME with ArbitorIan.
I got all the Epirian Models
Plus I bought;
1 extra Contractor sprue.
1 extra Scarecrow sprue.
1 extra drone sprue.
So that I can max out my Epirian Units if I desire.


+Construction Schedule
1) Humans.
2) Drones.
3) Robots.


Humans... Lets Go!
  • Journeyman Bot Handler 12pts
  • Five Contractor Engineers with two Aux Grenade Launchers 15pts

  • Journeyman Bot Handler with Aux Grenade Launcher 12pts
  • Five Contractor Engineers with two Aux Grenade Launchers 15pts
  • Five Contractor Engineers with two Aux Grenade Launchers 15pts


  • 59pts

    Plus
    2x Apprentice bot handlers (for future spider squads)

    Build Build Build!



    Paint! Paint! Paint!
    Primed using Army Painter black primer undercoat.
    Then Dusted with Army Painter White primer.
    Then a good dose of Army painter 'GreenSkin'
    and then dusted from above with Humbrol Matt Grass Green.
    The Guns sprayed Army painter Platemail Silver.



    Inky Ink.
    The dudes were hit hard with GW Biel-Tan Green shade.

    And the guns coated in Nuln Oil


    More to follow.

    Panic...

    This is THE modeling thread I've been waiting for- the Doom/MEdge crossover!

    Very excited to see this progress, the contractors look excellent both in that neon green and with those helmets. I hope you won't deprive our friends in the P&M Blogs from seeing this there too!

    Great idea for an army. Isn't there a plog knocking around Dakka of Doom themed Demons?

    The helmets go really well on those minis!

    It's not that people these days are more easily outraged or offended. It's that before you never heard from the people you offended, because they were marginalized, afraid, or far away. Now the internet gives them a platform to express their irritation, but it was always there, it's nothing new.

    Panic they are awesome! The helmets for perfectly. I'll be giving some serious thought to the Pig Iron helmets when I come to starting on the Epirians. It's gonna take me a while sadly - a lot of RL this year and a bit of a hobby queue already. I'll be trying to squeeze some MEdge in though. I'll be watching intently to your progress.

    Awesome. Pure Awesome.

    The Kaddar Nova's face paled, as he took in the sight before him. That was no ordinary Epirian force stood before him, no ordinary soldiers. The skill and assurance with which they moved, and those helmets - They were the Doom Squad! The venerable Karist Leader's plans all fell into pieces, and he called the general retreat, only to be met with the static of broken comm-channels. He looked up and saw a helmeted visage, standing in the door. It was over - his men weren't just dead, they were pulverised.

    So then is Arbitorlan going to do his Karists in a demon theme? They've already got the minnows and angels, plus the Karists themselves could easily be zombies.

    But If Yak, Lego or Mods want to move it to P&M that's cool??.

    There are no daemons in this universe as far as I know.
    But I think there's plenty of scope for mad scientists creating unspeakable horrors in labs!
    It would be easy to come up with Marines gone bad backed up by mechanical bio horrors drones

    Man, this is awesome! I could see the green on the finished model being just a bit brighter / more lively, and the back armor painted, like you mentioned on both.

    Overall, freaking love it and the head swap is brilliant

    All the washes were done today.
    Was planning to do highlights after I walked the dog.
    But during dog waking I some how ended up in the pub.
