Well, it is 2020 and here is a new set of updates on my buggos. did a dry brush of lighter metals in the armor, and some ruby red touch ups as well.

Nox troops
[/img]

Mentor, I am going to change his breaher mask colors.
[/img]

Stalker, much to still do on this one.
[/img]

Calban, I made his skull helm different than the art on the book and box.
[/img]

Gwailos Heavy suit.
[/img]


Still so much to do! small reinforcement group is on it's way for them.

Okay, I did break down and order some reinforcements for my Shasvastii aka Veemari buggo forces. The blister packs arrived, and they look a bit complicated.

Cadmus, looks simple enough for the line eh?
[/img]
[/img]


Mentor with Machine gun standing over a corpse
[/img]
[/img]
Not as many parts as I thought he would have.

Now we get to the Speculo killer, the truly complicated model of the lot
[/img]
[/img]
All those complex arrangements of parts!


And finally for my UruKhar Empire troops, a Hulang agent which will be classified as a Boomslang (Snake theme going on here)
[/img]
[/img]
Just clean up parts and assemble!

I will do a picture spread of assembly especially for the bug-girl.

Okay as promised, the fiddly Speculo Killer in all her glory

cleaned parts.
[/img]


Leg on rock
[/img]

Legs assembled
[/img]
[/img]


with torso and head added
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

She was fiddly and was not very cooperative to being assembled, but finally relented and the glue has cured!


Cadnus was easier as his back-pack and arms were a single piece and his head and body were another
[/img]

Assembled and with a human figure of Agent G for some idea how tall the bugs get
[/img]

I will have a image of the Mentor, he was also like the Cadmus a 2 piece assembly.

Very productive- you're starting the new year off well!

Thanks for the pics of the killer- with the one foot balanced on the rock, that _was_ a bit finicky to get put together correctly, wasn't it? You made a good job of it.

Trying to get my old mojo back, so to speak,

the one foot and rock at least are a solid molded piece, the rest is what got so dang fiddly!

and thanks again, I did what I could with her.




Meanwhile, I have the Mentor assembled. He was also a 2 piecer, so not much to show for him, but here he is with Agent G for scale purpose for show. He is slouched so keep that in mind.

Better give that multi part with all the fiddly a parachute. Only trouble I ever had with metal was no matter what you do, if you drop them they come t bits.

Yeah, the new blisters were fairly easy to come by via miniatures market, you may have a more local store carrying the Infinity stuff!

Thanks! a micro-chute in case she falls may help!

Meanwhile, I got to work on the Hulang which I intend to use for my narrative alien army, UruKhar specialist for dealing with troublesome targets in the B-00-M-5L-4-N6 Powered suits aka "Boomslang" as codded by outsiders.

and there I am at present, next to prime them and finish touching up and flocking other minis in my forces.

So, yeah, I have been using the Combined Army troop types as the basis for a faction I am doing writing/role-playing with, and the biomechanoids are expanding fast!

of course all who know me, are aware this is just the start, many touch ups, and redos, and other tricks will be needed for that big bad.

I intend to! Holed up in my lair, I received some new troops, but am working on getting details for others finished, but I will share with you all, the new units that arrived, I did order another, but considering the situation of Spain, I am thinking it will be delayed for some time, and that may mean the easier breathing of possible opponents. Here is what I ordered that is delayed. Female is in the image to give a grasp of the size of the Bio-Mechanoid beasty on order from Corvus Belli


As for the units I mentioned that arrived and await assembly and painting? Why, these two air-borne ladies of alien origins

I have been doing some dry brush work to age the dark armor of the buggos and Bio-mechanoids, then I must do flesh tones, so their images will be coming up soon.

On another note, I did dry brush the Adamantium black with shadowed steel, a dark metal in it's own right to make the armor look more full of depth. First up are the three Buggos I needed to do that to.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

I am thinking of making the coats and such a dark brown base.


Now I have also the Bio-mechanoids of the Unidron squad.
[/img]
[/img]

Now that the main armor color is done, I can dry brush the outer flesh of the red muscle zones showing. Shooting them in those areas however is like hitting steel reinforced Ballistic Rubber.


And now the armor of the Anathematic, a major big fighting unit, is also dry-brushed as the others. Definitely makes his/her armor look odd doesn't it?
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

These biomechanoids so hard to tell where the tech and and the fleshy bits actually begin eh?

It just shows the strange alien texture of the materials used See how it looks after the fleshy bits are done, if you still think it looks odd then maybe add a glaze?

Yeah, we had a lot of water cooled vickers machineguns and not much else, hence the very large, very phallic armoured covers.

There was one test vehicle that mounted twin 25 pounders side by side in the turret. The idea being that you don't need a 17 pounder to recoil test a 17 pounder being fired in your tank.
