  1. I have been working on a pair of goals for my Dreadball Extreme game. I have them pretty close to done, but I am debating on adding color to the hoses hanging off the back of the goal. There is a part of me that wants to just leave them the way they are. On the other hand, I feel that adding some color to the hoses will help with the overall look. The other question that I have is if I do add color, what color should I add? Please share your thoughts as I could use a second opinion on these. Thanks.
  2. In February, I started work on painting up my next Dreadball Team. This time it was the Kalyashi team from Dreadball Extreme and the Warden. They turned out pretty well. These models were rough. Most were missing ears one was missing an eye. (Hence the one having an eye patch.) A lot of the armor details did not carry over from one side of the model to the other. This was especially true on the legs. You would start painting a piece of armor only to find that it disappeared on the other side. Overall it made it really frustrating to work on and I found myself just trying to get a decent tabletop quality. I tried the best that I could to make them look manageable. Not my best work. I will say that with all of my experience with Mantic, these models are a rare bad batch and not indicative of the quality that I normally see from them.

  3. One of my goals for the summer is to be able to host a Dreadball League. In preparation for that I thought that it would be fun to put together my convicts team and get them painted. Here is the team all together Balls Guards Injured Players Jacks Strikers Overall I do feel like I am getting better. I am still working on several techniques. I am still trying to get the hang of layering. I now own the LTPK for layering from Reaper and I am sure that I will get better at it. I am really happy with the skin on the guards. I have a few eyes that are a bit wonky. Overall for tabletop quality, I think that they turned out alright. Comments and pointers are always appreciated.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/dreadball-the-futuristic-sports-game-2 I went in huuuge on the first DB and almost played a game twice. I liked the minis overall, though the casting was a mess (purportedly Mantic plastic has improved quite a bit). Best part in my opinion was getting several teams in metal for some reason, those are nice! Anyway, Mantic is back for more. I'm tentatively in because I have so many teams for this already and the new rulebook condenses all the season books, updates the rules; and the teams book supports all the old teams and MVPs. So if I do ever get around to playing, it would be nice to have.
  5. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. With the refurbishment of the old house complete and it now up for sale, I have at last some time to paint a miniature or two. It has been more than a month since I touched a brush smaller than two inches wide, and I have come to the conclusion that I utterly detest redacorating houses, especially everything that involves masking tape. So anyway, here goes: The success of the two DreadBall kickstarters meant that Mantic seemed to be scrabbling to come up with new and interesting models, races and concepts. Now there are teams of interdimentional four-legged freaks, crystal rock people, landlocked sharks, robed monks and bikini space elves with mohawks and bad dispositions. Not to mention twolegged pigmonsters (ever so slightly reminiscent of the pigdemons from Doom) and psychic floating jellyfish! Love it. this one is Alo-Khan, a special MVP from the "challenge cup" expansion, an Asterian Cypher that was lost on a junkyard planet, and has resurfaced as a "neo-asterian" that will not play with asterian teams. It started out as an effort to make a different take on the Battlestar Galactica Centurions than my chrome coloured Robot Team, but keeping it all in blue steel was too samey. So it ended up as this.

  6. What to do for my April resolutionary challenge? I haven't actually decided yet! Apart from painting a bunch of minis that is. At any rate, as per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. One of the things I like about Mars Attacks!, is that they have no qualms about doing crossovers into other IPs. So when Mantic was doing their Mars Attacks! kickstarter, they threw in an option to buy a Martian team for DreadBall, (and cards to use the Mars Attacks! factions in Deadzone as well Yay!). Here is my Martian DreadBall team, The Barsoom Brawlers aka the Emissaries of Peace Ack Ack Ack Ack. As for all my DreadBall minis, I mark the bases' threat zones (and one panel on the back side so I can see what a given mini is when playing) Green for Striker, yellow for Jack, Red for Guard. Like traffic lights. I have also painted boots and gloves in similar colours.
  7. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for DreadBall: This is a DreadBall Extreme free agent known as the Avaran Treebeast, or not-Groot it you like. It is certainly not-Treebeard either. The picture does not properly reflect the many shades of colour on this one. I will have to look into making a better lighting set up for photos. I did the base in the same style as my DreadBall original, that is black with no texture. I am debating myself on whether to texture the base or not, if anything to cover those gawdawful gaps / filler marks that are evident on every single Dreadball mini. Seeing as the Restic shrinks in production somewhat and makes the disk that fits into the hole in the base too small, leaving unsightly gaps and whatnot. Because of the mini itself sticking out of it I usually have a hard time sanding the filler, and it is near impossible to get the base proper smooth as they should be. At any rate, I am not really satisfied with the look of the bases as of now. Maybe a layer of black, unhighlighted sand will be best? Ah, and the coloured /green edging on the base is to denote that this figure is a ...Jack. Oh. I have coloured it as a Striker. It is supposed to be yellow for Jack, Green is Striker (and red is Guard, like traffic lights). And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth! I will need to redo that then. The front shows the three threat zones, and the back is for me the player to see what position it plays as without having to turn it around all the time to see what it is.
  8. Finished the test model on Saturday, finally photographed it today. The assembly line has started on the three remaining orcs and the goblins are primed. The orcs should be done tomorrow.
