Thanks mate. It's a great fig, totally nails the aesthetic doesn't it?

So bits and bobs, ticking over this week.

Working on The Tailor (a pretty generic bodyguard with a good moniker), aka Queen of Hearts:

The more I think about it, the more logical it seems that The Tailor would be part of Mad Hatter's crew. Very pleased with how his Heart mask has turned out. Suit will be fawn, blue tie, black gloves, maroon shoes - it's his "stock" scheme, which isn't like me at all, but I want to it to be clear which base model is being used - or at least being counts-as, because I'm actually using one of the Grin Twins (Joker cosplay thugs from SS movie) with an identical pose to the actual The Tailor mini.

And settling on my Matsudan team colours:

I think the belts need to be more leather than cotton, and I'm debating some gold accents, possibly on the back poles. Wondering about the Captain's mempo, whether the horns should be... horn or gold also.

Other stuff ticking over. Think I've settled on a scheme for the Nameless, modelled on Yeti crabs. More to follow!

Best to you all,
Graven


Here's to 300 more.

I think gold is go then. But very shiny gold on the horns, less so on the back bits.

Snip!

Here's to 300 more.

Thanks kindly sir!

Some BMG done? Surely not!
Got The Tailor, aka Queen of Hearts, done:


Wonder-ful...

Every Milliner needs a Tailor, right? Might run Pyg with this lot, as he sorta fits the Alice motif

I finally got Professor Zoom done in Rebirth colours, really happy with him... and pics look awful. Cannot get a decent shot where he doesn't look like a blur. Going to have to break out the Laika...

See? Looks dire.




I wouldn't call him done if I wasn't happy. Just frustrated because he looks a lot better in RL.

So, 300 pages? Crikey. Let's take stock then, in a slightly different way:
September model count
Painted: 3
On paint desk:
DB Matsudan team (12 models)
4 DB Cheerleaders, in various stages
2 DB Coaches, ditto

On paint shelf (mostly primed, odds and ends started)
DC
Shazam!
Uncle Dudley
Monster T
Miiltia (2)
Robin, Boy Wonder
Robin - Carrie Kelley

DB
Azure League Trophy
Azure League MVP

DZ
Misc. Nameless (18)

which should do for now

I'm not going to build anything else just now, mostly because I'm out of almost all primers and my cheap source has stopped stocking it anymore The only primer I have is Dark Brown, and its uses are limited: I'll be using that on the flying Nameless bugs and Z'zor (insectoid) Dreadball team, probably (unless I go nuts and invest in iridescent colour shift paints, or something). So whilst I have half a dozen unbuilt teams and about two dozen unbuilt DC figs, they'll have to wait. September goal is to try to clear what's on the desk atm.

Aye right

All the best, and who knows: maybe a contest will come your way soon for page 300?

Thanks on all counts

So on we go, with the Matsudan team, Kaiju Fury (sounds better than Kaiju Rage), now with brass and washes.



I like the violet wash over the black, it adds to the lacquer effect and gives a bit of depth.
More generally, I am really looking forward to playing with these guys, as they have the unusual combination of high strength, high skill. They may be slow, but they are very good with the ball.

And a couple of cheerleaders too


The colour scheme is official Digby (Dreadball Gaming Board) blue, so the idea being they're generic cheerleaders that can be hired by any team. Kinda wish I'd left the skirts off though, they look a bit meh.
Anyway, this means another 15 models done, making 304 this year so far, so over 300 by page 300 - not bad

I also started my test model for The Nameless for Deadzone:


I saw this wonderful picture of a yeti crab that looked ochre with verdigris; wanting to go with an authentic yet alien scheme deep, trench life seems a perfect fit. It's also really nice to be painting other stuff. Just need to decide on the base, I'm thinking rusted metal. Plain Concrete is pretty standard for Deadzone but dunno.

Also, I realise I quite forgot about having a Bloat drone, Mortarion and plagueburst crawler to paint, which are all primed on sprue

Onwards...

Looks far better than the official scheme. One thing Mantics got right is the wide variety of none Tolkien races in Dreadball hopefully more of them will get into Deadzone as full fledged races as it go's forward and congrats on the 300 by the way

Yeah. I love the range of races. Their fantasy is rather generic, sadly, but the Warpath universe is great.

Aaaaand the Ogre's base is done, so he is finished:

Agrellan badlands, green ink (possibly redundant), Black ink, astrogranite, wolf grey. Happy with that. 305...

Yeah Mantic have some really characterful sculpts. I wonder, in retrospect however, if I should've gone for white uniforms, so I have two "home" cheerleaders and two "visitor" cheerleaders (red). Given that I'm going to take the skirts off though I still might do so.

I do wish that there was more variety sometimes though. Hence, some crustacean chopping:

Slight repose, just chopped through the elbows to more of a Knuckle dragger look.

It's the big green bellies I reckon I might have some more bits for you btw. That's an interesting idea with nid bits, actually, particularly for the other prawns

CommissarKhaine wrote:Crab ogre is totally a Kaiju

Cheers mate. Need to crack on with the rest !

So, got the core colours down on the rest of the plastics:

Not sure what do with the guns, whether to do them coral pink, or silver or... other? Officially they're silver with lime green crystals. I've decided to leave the armour plates as the same chitin colour as the ogre, although the knee plates on the assassins (guys with the big claws) seem overtly riveted.

And a little mid week bmg distraction.

Monster T, the gangbanger Joker kills in Suicide Squad for eyeing up Harley.

He's a ridiculously expensive (£, not in game) promo, so obviously rather than reselling I've ruined it with paint he's actually ok in game, not broken like most of the other promos, just decent. Got a nice slot for him in my penguin list, he has the Goad ability which forces people to move towards you; it's an uncommon ability but both Penguin and his Lieutenant have it so, you know, like many games trait optimization through saturation.

Oh, and...
Mrs G said to me last night, "Have you heard about this Warhammer magazine thing?"

"Do you think the boys would like it?"

CommissarKhaine wrote:Ice blue weapons might be nice? Keep at it

Possibly, but I'd worry they'd get lost against hand tentacles.

So...
Went with coral pink for the guns and added more flayed one flesh for spiky bone spikes.

Pretty happy, I think. Turquoise wash next, then violet and sepia etc.

Had some fun starting out with the Primaris with the boys. For allegedly easy build, push fit models, not that impressed. I mean they look ok but we had to remove the pegs in the torso and glue, and in places GS too. Did a couple of arm swaps - at least there's a degree of modularity, and the heads are posable. Did a torso swap too, with some trimming and gs to fill. Of course, now I need to get the kids some Marine stuff and of course they want Dreadnoughts and tanks too, just like dad. Sigh. Going to see if I can't find some bits, do some conversions.

I was more surprised by the DG - decent push fit and genuinely useful as extras, with almost more modularity than the regular kit! (I exaggerate slightly, but still) I'd actually consider buying another set at that price. Because clearly I don't have enough tbh other than plaguebearers I really don't need anything at all for my

In other news. Finally got the urge to put paint on Shazam! and Uncle Dudley.

Whites and reds started. Yellows (gulp) to follow.

Plus, found an ideal model (in terms of pose, rules and cost) to get my Wonderland team to 350 (Zsasz not pictured), one of the Arkham inmates with some GS and rod work, to make a REAL White Rabbit:


Love this gang. Not that competitive, but a lot of fun and fluffy. At some point I'll make Walrus, Lion, Unicorn & Carpenter too. Mebbe.

Thanks old son. Boxes of shame. Sigh... Still, I'm at 307 minis so far this year. Got to keep counting, or else.

But I'm feeling motivated, as a result. Or, at least, panicked. so blocking in some other colours.

A bit more on Shazams; Brainwave with the last two militia: I realised I hadn't done any Mirakuru crew members still in prison oranges. The fact that it's guys with batons and, in one case, a riot shield, just makes more sense; And started Ra's al Ghûl, Carrie Kelley and 60s Robin.

That's everything which is primed at least started. I count that as progress I don't normally show my WIP2s but, proof of life, and so on.

The Nameless are all a bit further on now.

I just love the aesthetic of these guys. They make my little Lovecraftian fanboy heart sing. Sepia on the boney bits and green on the crystals to follow. On the home straight after that. To save time/effort/experiment, they're just based with a layer of astrogranite. This will then get washed black and a drybrush. Interested to see if it's any good for the kids, really.

A shameless plea, on that note: any marine bits gratefully received. Got to keep the boys loyal somehow! So any stuff will be a big help, especially at customising interminable Primaris

Well now, I promised you a contest, didn't I, for putting up with 300 pages and 8 years of me.
And here is the plan:

Graven's 300 Contest: I Am The Knight.

What do you have to do?

Paint something. Anything. Any system, any scale, mini, scenery, converted, unconverted... Anything.
But.
It must be somehow be knightly, or something to do with the night.
And what makes it a winner?
Well.
Whether you're a regular or a newcomer, give it your best. Rule of cool always trumps painting, in my book.

Give me a

I'll start a separate thread, and post your ideas, your WIPs, and send me final pics by October 31st - nice and easy to remember.

And what would a contest be without a prize? Or indeed, a choice of prizes?

I wanted a BMG prize, because that's my niche, innit? But I wanted something that would be useful to everyone, so how about some classic 70s mobsters? Yup, Carmine Falcone, The Holiday Killer, and his crew of goombas - all yours. Or, because it's my new jam, if you'd prefer, a Dreadball team.

How do we feel about this my loyal, loving minions?
Best

When you do the review of the bags you need to do ludicrous stuff like throw them out a second story window, or out of a moving school bus, something different than everyone else’s I dropped it down the steps . Also put some models inside that need a good kicking anyways so people know that your not going gentle on them.

Marine bits I can do....I believe I have a few more DB bits for you, so I should be able to get a care package out to you next weekend

I'm thinking I could just do a pair of Batman's eyes...an all black box, with just the two white spots.....I reckon I could probably finish that in time
