Continuing on from my sculpting thread here, I've begun assembly and painting of my Rottweiler tank.
Started sanding and first coat of primer. Ran out of black primer, so stalled myself out.
I'm thinking this might be a practice piece for a ReaperCon entry of the same tank.
Started these back in October, specifically the Sara Blitzer conversion. Was working on them at Reapercon, finished them during the Minivember challenge. Based and sprayed last night. I also completed one more of the Tisdale cousins, from the BoGW. They are ready for the game tonight.
From left to right: 80024, 80049, 80014, 80019, 80021, 80010.
Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting. Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it.
Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted.
Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them.
So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded chair back from my wife. The hard wooden chair will not do for long sessions.....
Some of you have probably seen my Tycho AFV for my Nova Corp figures, and the Rottweiler Grav Tank I'm working on for my IMEF figures. They've been quite fun to create. And now I've been going through my collection of other Reaper Chronoscope figures, and I've realized I've got a few other groups of figures that I could make similar sized units from. If I do that, it would be only fair if I gave them each a vehicle.
Since it will be a little bit before I actually get around to any of these, I thought I would ask you all what sort of look you would envision for vehicles for these various factions:
Cyber-Reavers - Given the Terminator vibe of these minis, I'm thinking something along the lines of the Hunter Killer flying craft from the movies.
Kulathi - ???
Bathalians - ???
Blackstar Corsairs - ???. I'm thinking maybe some sort of drop pod or drop ship for them? Or maybe just a bigger walker?
The Gray Aliens already have a flying saucer, so they're good.
That's what I have in my collection already (mostly thanks to 3 Bones Kickstarters). But I went ahead and browsed through the Chronoscope line in the store, and while I don't really see any other groups of minis that are big enough to make complete units, there are a few that were inspiring, should additional minis for them come along:
Illyrians (2 minis) - ???
Blood Nebula Mercenary (1 mini) - ???
Alien Overlords (3 minis) - ???
Sligg (3 minis) - ???
There are also enough sci-fi hero types, such as Kirby McDowell Space Privateer and Bonnie Futuristic Heroine, to assemble mercenary like unit. They'll need a vehicle too.
So let's see your thoughts and ideas.
As if I didn't already have so many projects in progress I can't count, I kept looking at the case of Bones IMEF figures, and thought "These guys need something that can take out a few NOVA Corp Tycho AFVs."
This concept was born:
I am shooting for it to be about the size of a GW Land Raider. Going to block it out in Fusion 360 soon.
