  1. IMEF Troopers

    Finished these guys up last night. Will be my Sci/Fi entry at my local Con's painting competition this weekend.
  2. AVP: The Hunt Begins

    I could bad mouth Prodos all day (KS backer), but instead I'll just share some pictures. Shoulder Cannon Predator, Berserker Predator, and Colonial Marine.
  3. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Rogue Stars

    Fresh off the paint table, some Rogues from the Stars from...well, "Rogue Stars". They're very retro, and would definitely work for "Slipstream" or "Rogue Stars" as well. The assembled Rogues: The Captain (though he strikes me as more of a Rogue Trader: The Rogue: The Lionman: Sniper-Bot: The Floyd-Bot: Big Bot: The Dominar...er, Crime Lord: Security Officer: The Pirate: Turtle-Turle:
  4. The grand folks at Firaxis games produced a winner for me. They updated the classic XCOM game and produced XCOM 2. I thought it stayed true to the feel of the original game while adding great looks and good game play. The plot is Aliens have invaded Earth and are trying to take over. You have to stop them and save the human race. In the second release you failed and your team are now a rag tag bunch of terrorists trying to bring down the one world government. One of the nice things they did was to throw the game open to modding. If you purchased the game on steam you can also subscribe to the XCOM to developer package free of charge. They make the tools and ALL the assets from the game available. I wanted to see if I could extract game assets and print some mementos for my self. I found out you definitely can extract the assets. The only issue with printing them is they're optimized for visual presentation and not for 3d printing. I started with something simple and edited it for FDM printing. I present the Alien overlord statue! (You show your love for your overlords by blowing it up in the introductory trailing mission) FDM has issues with "overhangs". You can't draw molten plastic with nothing under it. Gravity pulls the molten plastic and it doesn't just hang in mid air. Darn gravity! I split the statue in half so there are minimal overhangs. The arms are built up vertically from the bottom to the top: Each mirrored half was printed: Then a test fitting: Slapped on some one part bondo (for fixing scratches on cars): a bunch of sanding: Then some spray painted gold paint: A 3d printed base: And it's done! I'm happy with the result. The surface texture is still not wonderful. I'm still experimenting with methods to improve that. It's supposed to look like this: Have a great weekend, See you at ReaperCon! Jay
  5. These are the Leaders from the board game Space Cadets: Away Missions by Stronghold games. I was working on these guys from before Christmas, but then had to put all my painting equipment away. It took me a while to finally get it all back out and finish these guys up. I think they painted up a bit better and easier than the minions, though it may have just been that there are so few leaders in comparison. Thematic paint used - Blood Red. These are bad guy leaders, after all.
  6. 80045, 80046, 80047: Gray Aliens

    Here it is! Conclusive evidence of the existence of aliens!!!! Sorry, I may not have got enough sleep this weekend..... Anyway, picture, if you will, a race from another planet, not unlike our own. They discover a new planet with intelligent life. While they journey to meet them, they study the broadcasts of this race's own space exploration. From what they learn they pattern their own uniforms to follow the same colour system as the great explorers of this new species they journey to meet. These guys are just done to tabletop. I needed something to paint at work so ran down to the Bones storage facility on a Sunday night and picked something from the Chronoscope drawer. They were fun and quick to do. I have 20 more to do so they may end up in here at some point in the future.
  7. Episode VII The WIP Awakens It's a time of uncertainly. Dreariness grips the forums as the influence of the Dread Winter spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic forces of the Forumites. As they struggle against the dark and cold of the enemy, these brave painters may yet awaken the skill and strength needed to complete new figures.... Now that I've got THAT out of my system.....I think I'll be painting some Sci-Fi stuff over the next little while, mostly Bones 3 stuff but anything else that doesn't deserve a separate, like some old resin barrel terrain pieces I have, will likely end up in here too. Game specific stuff like Counter Blast and (hopefully arriving any day) Mercs: Recon will get their own WIPs. First project, so Bones Gray Aliens. Picked these 5 out at midnight last night so I'd have something to paint today. Gave them a quick scrub and threw them in the paint box to take to work. Gave them all a undercoat of Gray Liner. Based the skin with Rainy Gray. Eyes are Solid Black as will be base coating for any hardware. Thinking about doing the uniforms as if they were an alien Star Trek landing party. Didn't have any decently dark yellows or blues with me, but the obvious red shirt got a base coat of a mix of Walnut Brown and Carnage Red. Goal with these is nice quick table top. As usual for me with Bones tabletop, as the flash was minor it was left as is. Thought the eyes came out decent considering they were testing the fire alarm system randomly throughout lunch....
  8. Allright. I finished 32 Saucermen in about a month, which is pretty intense painting for me. They aren't all perfect but I played a game with some of the painted ones and they looked fine on the table. I probably just shouldn't worry as much. I experimented a bit with various color washes because I think the black was a bit too harsh on the outfit, but in the end I stayed with Reaper's Black Wash. The Flesh Wash wasn't too bad up close, but from far away you couldn't tell it was there. Thematic paint used - Pumpkin Orange. It was October when I did most of the painting so it still counts. Focus on the four different poses. The crouching, single pistol Saucerman was a pain in the rear to paint because he was blocking his chest. The "lightning" design was already tough enough to do without access being restricted. Group shot!
  9. Space Cadets: Away Missions is a cooperative, dungeon crawl style of game set in the era of classic science fiction. Stronghold Games funded the game through Kickstarter in order to add some nicely detailed minis to the game, and by the end they included over 100 minis in the game. For a board game, they are very nice minis and while they are mostly fine as is, they are practically begging for a good paint job. Before I tackled the heroes and classic, Mars Attacks! style aliens, I quickly pained up the Space Leeches and Sentinels to see how they would look.
  10. Bones Gray Aliens 80045, 80046, 80047

    I'm continuing on my goal of painting up the bones expansion 3 for use in an x-com game. Today I have the gray aliens, I ended up basing them with Mars rocks because they were molded already standing on rocks.
  11. DeadTech Cowboys

    DeadTech Aliens came to earth during Wild West. These robots took over the bodies of the dead and are ready to fight. Here are the first few. I like them, but some sculptings looks like fail casts. Especially the hands. I'm really thinking about filing more details into the hands, if it is possible...
  12. Hey guys Anyone played this game? What are your thoughts? I just picked up some Greys from Reaper for my first game.
