  1. Man, the Lancers models are really turning out to be a great looking crew!
  2. Oh - that's a clever idea. I hadn't thought about checking a wet surface for highlights! Great tip Willen!
  3. Yep - I'm liking the blue on the female plugger. Very nice. The main colors of green and brown you have chose for the crew are my favorite for Lancers overall. I have moved on to working on a set of Neiran for our demo games at AdeptiCon. Here I have primed them light gray and applied MSP Surf Aqua and Rosy Skin as a basecoat by airbrush. Next they will be getting a wash of Army Painter Blue Ink for shading. Working time on paint at this stage - 1hr.
  4. Excellent work on the Lanceguard! i really dig his two-toned skin. I just finished this guy:
  5. All new Lancers crew for the studio Demos. Here they are undercoated with Testor's Model Master Dark Tan and Olive drab for an appropriate mercenary feel. On to the base coats for the details next!
  6. Okay - GDF reinforcements requisitioned for Monday's COUNTERBLAST Demo game. All of these guys are painted with Army Painter primers and paint. I missed taking WIP shots of these guys but I do have some Lancers to follow. They are very close to the color scheme Jasper the 2nd is using for his. I LOVE how that HoPR bot is turning out! Will try to post some WIP shots of my Lancers next. The security bots have lenses, too. I did these as a black base coat, then ran a turquoise blue (or red depending on the lens) in the lower half as a reflection and then just added a dot of white for the highlight. You can get pretty elaborate with lens reflections but for a quick 2 hour paint job this still works okay.
  7. Wow those are really coming along nicely! Love the color choices. The olives and browns for the Lancers really give give them a merc feel. The dark metallics on the Mekkus brings out a cold and sinister vibe to the models. As Inner Geek mentioned earlier, the first set of 15mmm "Micro Babes" is out. We'll be producing some 15mm Counterblast stuff later in the year. The rules Addendum 1.1 is almost finished and will be available soon as a free PDF download the has errata and omissions along with clarifications, adjusted stats, and additional info making COUNTERBLAST even more playable than it already is. Looking forward to seeing others post their painted things, too. Would it be out of place for me to drop pics of my WIP stuff in here as I work on demo pieces for AdeptiCon?
  8. Lovely work on everything! Some really great painting shown here! i am really encouraged by the amount of folks willing to spend as much time painting these things as I did making them! Leak: I currently have the next three Muses on the workbench RIGHT NOW!
  9. Your wish is granted! http://bombshell-miniatures.highwire.com/product/helmet-set-t8 http://bombshell-miniatures.highwire.com/product/plastic-dome-sprue-t8
  10. Thanks for the feedback! I will be posting more pics once I get the production castings and start assembling them.
  11. While putting together some of the studio models for COUNTERBLAST I noticed there was a surprising coincidence with the plastic domes for the GDF troops and some of the Bots models. I wish I could say this was planned from the beginning but that's part of what makes this hobby fun, flashes of inspiration to fuel creativity! It seems that a couple of the plastic domes are exactly the same size as the collar sections of the HLpR Bot chassis and the BdE Bot chassis. Since they are bots there is really no reason for them to need bubble helmets but the image stuck with me. So I started thinking whether I wanted to add gizmos like inside the dome on the Robot from Lost in Space or something else. It would be way cooler, and more pulp in nature, to put floating brains in there! You can check out some more cultural and aesthetic implications of the trope brain-in-the-jar like I did here. So after looking at that I sculpted up a few brains to go with my Renegade Bot Lancer crew. But the leader needed to be special, with a menace like Darth Vader. So, after researching some appropriate pulp-sounding names I settled on Dr. Zardov. I told Vicky about my idea for the characters and how he was experimenting with Mekkus technology when something went wrong. She set about to write his backstory and work up what stats he and his crew might have. In the meantime I made a few other brains and assembled the parts for my crew. It would be one thing if this was a one-off project, but why keep all this coolness just to myself? Bombshell Miniatures is all about the fun of hobby gaming too! So, I sent off a few extra parts to be mastered and as soon as they come back, we will be offering a Lancer Faction Starter Set for Dr. Zardov and the Robot Menace with all of the parts for you to convert your own Renegade Bot crew also. Plus, the brain sprue and an all new equipment sprue including Maelee's wrench, an air tank, tool pouch, weapon scopes, data pad, and ultonium container, are in production, too! We'll keep you posted! Patrick The Sculptdude
  12. Thanks for all the great input! @Sgt Crunch - I painted the hair with Liquitex Napthol Crimson and did a couple of washes over it with Ltx Burnt Umber and a little bit of Dioxazine Purple. After seeing some of the great results of the Reaper MSP paints here I'm going to have to give those a shot next!
  13. Since this was a Reaper fig, I thought I'd post it here on the forums for you guys to check out. It's slightly converted. The wings have been discarded (to show her excellent backside!) and she has been given a sculpted armored breastplate. I decided to paint her as a fierce celtic warrioress and gave her spiral war-paint designs. The sword and the armor bits are painted with GW metallic paints. It's also on eBay here. Critiques are welcome!
