NOVA Corporate Security

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what color schemes people were using on the NOVA Corporate Security figures? I was leaning towards something in a classic black and white, but I think they'd end up being to Stormtroopery.

I used blues. If you stop in at Reaper and ask Bryan to show you where the two that they have in the case are, he can show you the ones that Michael Genet and I painted up.

Those stormtrooper ones look really spiffy though.

And I'd like to take the time here to say I'd really like to see at least one more pose of these guys. I'd rather see a couple more poses and perhaps a heavy or support weapon. I'm painting mine blue. Hopefully sometime this week.

Very Spiffy Nanite,

 

I was thinking of doing some up in blacks and dark grays like the ATC security teams from FEAR although they would make excellent Replica Tactical Soldiers too ;)

 

also those bases don't happen to come from Back2Basix do they?

 

Nope, Champ Industries. nice and cheap!

Huh cool,

 

they look very much like some I picked up from B2B at GenCon Oz last year. I would post photos but they were used to base some figs from the worlds second great evil!

For other color schemes, you could try doing a search in the 'Show Off' section of the board to see if there are any others that have been posted.

Now that I think of it I had some with the Desert Storm Chocolate Chip camo scheme (speed painting figures from 2007 IIRC) and it works quite well !!!

 

The blues I used on the riot cop Chronoscope figure were older Pro Paint mach I, which I believe you could do well to emulate with the current Pro Paint (Anne Improved) colors. Of special note is that the "white" on the one I painted was an off-white with blues/greys in it. Don't think I went all the way up to white on anything.

 

I'm pretty sure I only used one dark blue and worked all the other colors up using the off-white.

I'd like to take the opportunity to point out at this time, Mr. Sub, that we are about the Hobby here, not about feeding our egos. If you wish you may state the names of other manufacturers (such as Games Workshop, Privateer Press, Wizards of the Coast, Darksword((Jim of Darksword, BTW, = #1 awesome guy and we love him, so say his name all you want)) Hasslefree, etc.) and games(WarHammer, D&D Miniatures, Warmachine, Hordes), and even show pictures of their products.

 

I do need to say that it is a violation of board policy to actively Sell or Promote The Sale Of (by linking or just blatant salesmanship) other company products, but talking about and showing pics of are fine.

 

Welcome to the boards, and help us spread love of playing with, painting, sculpting, converting, or just ogling pretty metal things.

I've been wondering how to paint these guys too. Nanite's scheme inspired me to paint them "classic Traveller" a rusty red color I'm thinking...

That red scheme is sweet, thanks for sharing it Nanite. And Reaper Darryl's Stomtrooper scheme is awesome. Right now, I'm leaning toward black and yellow. I'm worried though that they'll end up looking more like bumblebees then hazard signs (which is what inspired my color choice).

If you want 'em to look like hazard signs, perhaps only doing hazard sign accents on the various pads with the remainder of the uniform being black or something neutral yet dark. Sort of a "warning, knee in face will hurt" kind of a thing :-)

The Warzone community has been looking at the Chronoscope line for all of our sci-fi needs. I may get some NOVA dudes for extra Brotherhood troopers, but not until I paint some of my original pieces.

 

The Blackstar heavies got plenty of attention too. I'm glad there isn't a dedicated game to the line, as now, with the sky being the limit, we're more likely to find something for everyone.

 

The Reaper peeps know these models will be put into so many games, I don't think it will hurt them to know where their babies go!!
