Jasper's MERCS:Recon WIP

134 posts in this topic

Apparently yesterday afternoon got busy too....

So yesterday I tackled all the leather bits.  Base coat plus a wash. The Shock's enhanced combat suit thingy doesn't have any pouches or plates, so she got the the day off.

Today I'll put some highlights on the leather and maybe finish the black and do the metals, or start on the light grey plates and such.  See how it goes...

Leather highlighted.  Everything black or metal base coated in black. Well, except for the Shock....

Looks very unlikely I'm going to get these finished this week (unless my boss so how gives me a painting day tomorrow, but I can't see that happening) so they're going to have to get finished at home this weekend to make my quota for the rpchallenge.

But I still have today and tomorrow to try to get close.

 

Today was metals and a first coat of black on the Shock's base, which I'd missed earlier.

And back to the Shock.

 

Tomorrow I'll start on the grey plates, but likely won't even get them all based in one hour.

 

To do: Rainy Grey parts: plates, backpacks, parts of the face, etc.

           Eye lenses, electro knife, any other glowy bits

           Sniper's hair

           Touch ups

           Finish bases.

Managed to get a first coat of grey on 5 of them (more or less, I noticed I missed the shoulder insignia bits on the last two).

Grey parts all have a good coat and lines and such are done.  They just need a bit of highlighting.

Lenses are done (possibly a bit of cleanup around them when I break out the metals).  Attempt at glowy knife is done.

Forgot to do blue glowy on the power gloves for the Shock.

And then touchups and finishing up the bases.

Kemvar off to show off.  Next up I'll be priming some Keizai Waza.

So, as I continue to drift towards senility, it seems I've already primed 6 of the Keizai Waza....and still had one to assemble.

So lunch became me priming one, and assembling one. And watching some World Superbikes while doing so.

Here's the Booster, primed.  The colour scheme with be a black bodysuit with some grey features, some leather pouches, and bright orange armor. Here's the official art.

And here's the Demo, who needs to go home for a bath now.

Spent most of lunch picking out spells for my wizards, since it looks like we will actually play a game or two of Frostgrave next week.

 

But did take a few minutes to slap some primer on the Keizai Waza Demo.

Just before I take a week off work, so won't be working on MERCS, I figured I'd play around with the Keizai Waza colour scheme.

I picked the Wrench as he's fairly "standard" looking with no strange an unique items on him (no acid bombs, no tactical nukes, nothin).

I did a quick base coat of the bodysuit, the leather pouches and the metal bits, so I could get to the armour and see if the oranges I'd picked worked ok.  I base coated the bottom half and then worked up through on the right leg to see how it looks.

I think it needs a little highlighting but looks alright....

Thoughts?

I like it.

 

A little more highlights will enhance the look, but it is already good!

I agree that just a little bit of highlighting would really make it pop, but it looks decent as it is now too. 

 

Great-looking squad you're building! :)

 

Huzzah!

      Sat down for two hours today to make the time until bones 3 shipment notification go by.  Thought I'd try a speed paint of something largish.  Wasn't sure if this should have gone in the WIP thread.  Not putting it in show off though since it is far from what I would consider done.  Still, a fun test of my speed.
       
      2:39 pm about to rip open the bag.

       
      2:51 pm mold lines trimmed, washed, glued to a base.
       

       
      3:13 pm.  Brown linered.  Poured too much so a big puppy got some liner too.  Had to wait for drying anyway.
       

       
      3:47 pm.  Green hair, off white weapon and other accessories.  Eyes.
       

       
      4:08 pm. Skin.  Lots of skin.  
       

       
      4:28 pm.  Blue and purple/red cloth and accessories.  What, only 10 minutes left?  
       

       
      4:41 copper details.  Little leather.  Okay, technically a couple minutes over.  Would have liked to go for another 20-30 min but I had to run out.  
       

       

       
      mission accomplished?  Well, there base could use some attention.  And the face.  Really all of the skin could use a highlight. And the hair.  
       
      But I think I'll keep it as is for now to show what I am capable of in two hours.  Maybe try this again in a while (there is the male still to do) and see if I get any faster.

      I made more progress on my Zombicide Survivors.  Here is number 4: Amy.  I wasn't comfortable with painting up the fishnets from the artwork, so I went with lite pink.  Otherwise I went for close to art work.  As with my other models,  I went with no blood on the survivors.  Only problem is the blade couldn't be straightened perfectly, but she is for gaming, so good enough.
       
      Here is Amy:

       
      Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like giving.

      Here is the mighty Shrew-zerker, from the Burrows and Badgers line (and game) from Oathsworn.
       

       
      Sorry about the shininess, as he's a for play piece so I gloss coated him, and its been too humid or damp to dull coat him for the last couple of weeks.  I'll update with some new pics whenever I get a chance to spray him.
      He's a great little fig (Oathsworn's anthropomorphic figs are scaled like the actual animals are, so shrews are pretty tiny, around 20mm) and was fun and quick to paint.  He's been done for a while but my basing stuff was all away from moving to a new painting space.  I finally found some and put a quick and simple base on him. Hopefully as I get more used to basing with flock again (its been....a while) my bases will improve for future B&B figs.
       
      Update!
      Dull coated and with improved photography....

      Next we have the Shrew Warrior.
       

       
      Again, sorry about the shininess.  I'll post new pics once the weather cooperates for dull coating.
      Another fun little guy, full of character.
       
      Update!
      It actually stopped raining long enough to spray some dull coat.  I've also been messing around with my phone and background to get less washed out pics.
