Bubblegum Crisis robot

Recommended Posts

Elpagg glanced over over the unconscious woman; she'd make an excellent prize to deliver to the cap'n. They would probably get a decent price for her at the slave markets of Nepo-7. Well, if  she lived that long...

The raider shook his head to clear his thoughts. Best to concentrate on right now, he thought, as he continued to loot her cabin. She had jewelry and some tech equipment that would bring in a nice pile of credits; all of this was haphazardly piled on the table as he continued going through the storage compartments of her cabin.

 

Suddenly, he heard a slight noise come from the other room. Damn! He should have made certain she was alone before he started to ransack her quarters. He drew his pistol and began to approach the other room. As he did so, he saw a small female shape outlined in the light coming through the open doorway.

 

He grinned to himself, this was getting better and better. "Come on out here, girlie. I promise I ain't gonna hurt ya"

 

The figure remained motionless for what seemed like ever, but was probably only 30 seconds, then took an uncertain step forward, rising it's hands at the same time.

 

Something screamed a warning in the back of Elpagg's mind, but it was already too late. The brilliant flash of light and the searing pain from his chest both registered in his brain within milliseconds of each other.

 

The ELz-1 personal protection droid scanned the raider and confirmed that  he was dead. Performing the same scan on the body of her mistress confirmed that she was still alive, and only slightly injured. Ellie, as her mistress called her, set about securing the cabin against any further intrusion, before running it's first aid programs on the unconscious woman.

 

 

This is a  Bubblegum Crisis robot figure from Ground Zero Games that I snagged out of a BoGW a while back, and finally decide to paint.   I wanted 'her' to be a little old and dinged up looking, so I did a lot of weathering to the figure.

 

I hope you like her!

Looks like part of Ground Zero Games Bubblegum Crisis line.

That's what I was thinking as well.

Looks good, but holy crap? There's Bubblegum Crisis miniatures? BGC was one of the first anime series I ever saw, and it's still near and dear to my heart even today...

I seem to remember back in the day (mid 80's??), there was a cool set of mini's for BGC. Was all the girls suits, some boomers and K-12 troopers. Maybe even leon from AD police? Yah, BGC was one of my first animes (along with Gunbuster, Macross and of course (though not anime) Big G!), wish Kenichi Sonada would have finished this one. Working for Books Nippan, I got to see and acquire all kinds of cool anime product:rolleyes:

What a cool story! Unofrtunately I havent had the chance to watch the anime but heard a lot about it.. Another point in my to-do list for sure.. 

And for the mini, I tip my hat off to you good Sir, especially to the perfect weathering and the coolest base.

      Got a new steampunk mini on the table:-
       

       
      The Gentlefolk Highwaywoman (from the Twisted mini range), a robotic housemaid turned gun-wielding bandit.
       
       

       
      So far I've painted up her face, hands and bit of thigh (Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel > Aluminium > Black Wash), the gun barrels were done at the same time but didn't get further than the 2nd layer of Oily Steel.
      Next, her torso was based in Brassy Brass, and her hair and gun were based in Bronze, it was all given a Brown Wash.
       
      I think there's more of her mechanical parts on show then I originally thought, so I'll give her a good look over tomorrow.

      More info to come as we get ready to load up even more heavy metal mayhem!

      Every now and then, it's fun to give something new a try.  In this case, I had a spare Ingrid lying around since hubby didn't want to paint her, and this all started with me trying to show hubby how I do drybrushing...  Or at least attempt drybrushing, since I'm not all that good at it.  Thankfully, it helped him pick up the basics alongside what was written in the LTPK Core manual...
       
      Then it turned into a downward, flaming spiral, but arguably, in this case, flaming is good. ^_^;;;;  I wondered, is it possible to drybrush an ENTIRE mini...  And even more so, can I do it with just FOUR paints, where two of them had technically already been chosen since I'd started on her cloak, AND none of them could technically be from the same colour group as another (so no reds if you have an orange or pink, etc)?  And even more so, using JUST the #2 flat brush I had picked out before for the drybrushing?
       
      Well, uhmn....  First and foremost, it was fun, and that was the point of it all for me.  Just sit down, have fun, and see where things go.  In short, I'm calling it a draw - I've picked up on a few more things as basics to work from, and I'm fairly proud of that cape, doubly so since it wasn't anywhere near as long to do as other techniques.  Does it sell it as well as layering does?  Nope, but I'm okay with that!
       
      Anyways, onwards to the results of some experimentation to see just what my own limits could be with such a technique, and what kind of colours I can come up with using just 9417 Void Blue, 9432 Desert Sand, 9600 Heart Throb Pink, and 29833 Ash Grey....  For the record, the two I had started with on the cape were Heart Throb pink as well as Ash Grey, since the Ash Grey was used to initially demonstrate what I was doing for drybrushing, and then the Heart Throb Pink was chosen as something that would very much so stand out so he could watch every stroke of the brush...  I wound up liking such, and so rolled forward to do the entire mini with drybrushing.  Oh, right, I'm not counting the primering of the mini, which was done with Grey Liner.... ~_^
       

       
       
       
      The story I'm going with is that it's a cursed gem that steadily corrupts and takes over one's body and soul, and that she's pretty much completely overtaken by it...  Or something, as she's kind of a pink glowing eyed dusty grey skin coloured gnome now, with gear that hopefully looks fairly dated / well aged....
