Yup. Truly dire. I shall be investing in another Eaglemoss one and repainting it for Bane accordingly. Size wise they're totally indistinguishable. There's barely 2mm difference and even at that scale you'd struggle to notice. Even the other admins admit that my other Eaglemoss repaint is far better so what could go wrong?

thanks! Plague Armigers have been hanging around for ages, like a bad cold... I'll likely try to sell the crapmobile, tbh. I'm genuinely appalled by it.

Got a few more things done today whilst watching Umbrella Academy finale (tis vg) and first episode of The boys (tis ok). Finally finished my Armigers/War Dogs/whatever they're called today:

Mr Bitey



Mr Tickle



And Mr Whippy



And did a bunch of MVPs for Dreadball, as we're going to need some next match, but no idea which the kids will actually pick. I now have most of them painted, so they should be able to pick any one they might need.

Agent 88


Nice fig. More fun to paint than I expected.

Lyra the Fixer


Fun fig to paint. Lots more detailing than I realised.

Eclipse

Come at me bro! I love this. She just looks spot on for a random alien. She's also bloody brilliant in game, as she's a manager as well as a player.

Snörkel the avenger

Maybe should've painted him up as Captain America. That's America's Pseudopod.

Asylum

Kali ma!!!

Plus, started two more, 2nd ed Blaine and Rico:


As for wips, well, started some DC of all things

Do love king shark. Do do doodoodoodoodoooooooo

And with the belly greyed up.

And with DCU 2 round the corner, finally getting on with my parademon invasion force.

If you're very observant you might spot Luna Lovegood in her lion hat hiding in the back too.

I also fixed an inevitable broken wand with a paperclip:

Reparo, etc.

Made Ron a Scabbers


And here's a better look at Luna


Away to my folks' this weekend, so no dice. With a bit of luck I *might* get some more paint on the para-drones.

That Tumbler is made of shame...

The Nurgle-bots are fantastic. The new Gaslands cars are an inspiration. The MVPs make me want to push my group into playing Dreadball. King Shark is second only to Luna rolling with the armies of Apokalips.

I've seen two other, painted tumblers today. I continue to be convinced they look like trash. It's some of the sloppiest resin I've ever worked with, and I remember what forgeworld used to be like.
Glad the bots are getting love.
Gaslands rocks.
Dreadball is just obscene fun, and dirt cheap.
King Shark is a lovely fig and is nice to remember why I like KM sometimes.
Luna... well, that's black primer for you

Anyway, slightly further with the Parademons:

Coming along nicely and, more importantly, quickly. I've dotted the eyes in red also. So I think vj deck tan for the skin, a couple of yellow spots on the armour, and we'll be there in a jiffy. Get them done Monday,

Tak it the rules don't allow you to play Harry Potter vs DC?

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Lol nope. But given the new Marvel game is running off SW legion maybe it's not so crazy
Looking at the parademons again, I'm sorely tempted to do even less than I'd planned to, just washing the skin sections earthshade rather than first painting them in tan. Speed is key: if I end up getting the new invasion force box set in order to get Big Barda, I'll have another 3 of the buggers to do as quickly and similarly as possible. These ones have some slight reposes, but any more would need much more work there - so the painting has to be as readily replicable as possible to tie them together.
Looks, incidentally, like most of the first wave of DCU2 is Death/Reign of supermen. So, there goes my bank balance.

All looking good, those plague walkers are amazing (especially the Cthulhu chap, that's inspired!) and the Parademons are suitably alien-looking with that radioactive green hue.

Shame about the Tumbler, though it's handy to know the Eaglemoss ones are close enough in scale, I need to pick one up to go with my Gotham City Chronicles stuff, I'm thinking the Arkham Asylum one but if the Tumbler looks to be a suitable scale I imagine that will be as well.

Looking forward to seeing King Shark done, for some reason he's one of my favourite DC villains despite being a bit of a C-lister... I think I just enjoy the quirk that he should clearly be an Aquaman villain but keeps ending up fighting Flash instead, and the sheer absurdity of his whole look...

It was tough getting the plague armigers over the finishing line, they've been languishing in a box for months poor things.

tinfoil wrote:Great conversions. Entirely atmospheric -- authentically en-Nurgled. Nicely done.

Many thanks!

So, really happy with the Parademons:

More fun than anticipated, and ready for a serious assault on our realm. Genuinely looking forward to throwing hordes of the bastards at the kids.

I know what you mean, Paradigm, about King Shark lol. He was great in the most recent Dan Abnett Aquaman run, which is just as well as The Flash is pretty meh these days. He's coming along nicely:

Think he's done. Didn't go super bloody, relatively discreet.

Enjoyed the base too. Liking the big fellas, my DC to-do pile now consists of Darkseid, Steppenwolf, Lobo and Killer Croc (rebirth).

Bird (Bane's sidekick) for scale. He's fully 35mm, bear in mind.

Yesterday was mostly given over to an epic, 3 hr long game of ultimate dreadball that went right down to the final ball. The narrative of the game is just hysterical, we play into the random stuff that occurs - the first turn was really dull with kids hiding the balls in a pack in their own scoring zones (known as Castling up) which is generally frowned on - purely by chance, the Bored Fans event happened, then a massive and protracted fight happened between the kids' MVPs, so I of course just HAD to play the Bloodthirsty fans card in my hand... delightful, ludicrous madness.

I nearly won, but the kids teamed up to take me down. Bah! next match is a no-holds barred xtreme murder fest, with no ref and booby-trapped board. Good times ahead! Couple more MVPs:


I am also a bit further along with the big smurf:

Don't worry about the speckling. That'll all disappear down the line.
The clock is running down on the holidays. It's funny, I'd've sworn we'd've played lots of 40k/KT - and it's DB that's won the day hands-down.

Pretty much. He looks way more grainy in the pic than reality. Odd. Still playing with new camera settings. Still, I like his gem.

Feeling very in the DC zone. And so, did Steppenwolf also:

I'm trying to go more New 52 (darker) comic than the studio paint job (bit shiny for my taste) but anything has to be better than that abomination of a movie.


Nice Planet, We'll Take it.

Now just need Big Barda.

And Desaad. And the rest of the Furies. And Mister Miracle. And the New Gods...

A few other bits done too, spots of colour here and there on odd models (Lobo and Killer Croc's bases, mostly). Nothing to share yet.

Played a great game of DBU-X (Ultimate Dreadball Xtreme) yesterday with the kids and erithromycin (who also got me loads of weird and wonderful gaslands goodies as a belated birthday present)

We had a LOT of fun. Traps and obstacles, and no ref, made for total carnage.

Last day of holidays today older one's off camping in the pouring rain, so younger and I have been playing DC Super Villains and are off to buy Pokemon cards and donuts. Seems legit.

Fancy doing Deadman actually, he's very much on my to-do pile. Need to think about Justice League lineups to take on the hordes of Apokolips.

Llamahead wrote:I still want to see him used as a Daemon Prince.



So just to finish my holiday exploits, how about a Killer Croc?

I'm not sure how finished he is.

I wonder if the darker green in particular, and to some extent the rusty base, needs more highlights.

I almost got 'im with a rock THIS BIG!

Bit more work on Lobo, who gets a pic now


And painted up the Alpha Simian, another DB Giant:

Ook.

That means I've painted 20 figs so far this month (21 if I decide Croc is finished), 90 over the 6 weeks of the summer holidays, and 173 so far this year. That's not bad at all. Whilst I don't imagine I'll get close to last year's total of 400+, that's still rather satisfying. I'm not going to list what's unbuilt and unpainted - that way madness lies I'm just going to keep painting what I feel like painting, when I feel like painting it.

Back at school, no time to do much, really. Managed to get in some Transformers TCG with the kids, finally put together an Aerialbots deck (nasty nasty) and rejigged my janky tanks into something workable in Wave 3. Actually want to get them to tackle the pile of Raven Guard in the house, too, though

Have managed to score a review copy of the Dune boardgame from GF9, which I'm pretty stoked for. Need to get some Gaslands done, and throw a lot of thin black paint at Harry Potter Models.

That's a fun deck, I love janky tanks. Omega is really good with W1 Swoop, you can get up to all sorts of nonsense with damage relocation.

There is something very screwy going on with my phone camera settings. I shall try to fix, because that graininess ain't there in RL.

Got an image exclusive from upcoming Supers Unlimited:

KS drops in a couple of days and dayum, the stuff looks good.

Started another Dreadball team, Tsudochan (telekinetic alien monks), pics anon, along with getting the boy to sort out raven guard. Incoming codex excitement...
