    Halcyon 1/8 Scale Judge Dredd

    Been working on this guy for a while now and I'm going to call him done now since I have to ship him out. Old Halcyon vinyl kit of Judge Dredd. First one of these I've finished. Primered with Badger Stynylrez paints and all the flesh is Stynylrez. Green is all Reaper colors. Gold is Scale 75 shades and I'm not really a fan. Took about 4-5 coats to get smooth coverage. I really miss the old Polly S metallics! Nothing since has come close for coverage and grain. Base is Stynylrez grey, over sprayed with Polly S Concrete, cracks are all colored pencils. Gold for the base was Vallejo Metal Color Gold which airbrushed great (I'll have to try brushing it on at some point). Gold was washed with Liquitex Burnt Umber artists paints, which was also flicked on the base to create stains. Grunge and color variations on the base were created with various Secret Weapon pigments. I needed to push the highlights on the green up a bit, but my lighting here isn't doing me any favors either.

    Halcyon 1/8 scale Judge Dredd

    Finished the bases for Dredd and Anderson tonight. Primered with black Stynylrez, then sprayed the Vallejo gold. Masked the gold and sprayed with Synylrez Grey, then with a random overspray of Polly S Concrete I've had for years. Washed the gold and spattered them with Liquitex Burnt Umber and let that dry overnight. Drew on the pavement lines and cracks with colored pencils, then added additional grunge and tonal variation with various Secret Weapon pigments. Pretty happy with how they look. Hopefully the client likes them as well!

    Not gaming related, but I thought some of you might like to see some of the other (bigger) stuff that's out there: https://www.flickr.com/photos/150914563@N08/page1 Not my pictures, but this is the most comprehensive gallery I've found for this show.

    Buglips and SisterMary present ... German Infantry

    Ed talked to them at AdeptiCon and I know they were planning on it. Passed your information on to the man with the plan.

    Buglips and SisterMary present ... German Infantry

    Warlord Games is supposed to have a booth at RepaerCon this year. I was hoping to show up and help man it and run demos, but scheduling conflicts are preventing that. :( You should be able to get demos of Blood Red Skies, Cruel Seas, Strontium Dog and possibly the new Judge Dredd game as well. If you want to try Bolt Action or Gates of Antares, let me know and I'll pass the word along.

    Dance of Death

    Off to an excellent start! Yeah, Tamiya putty is really good putty but the fumes are really nasty! Lots of bad "enes" in there (i.e toulene, xylene etc..) Definitely have at least a fan and preferably an open window as well if you're using that stuff!

    Halcyon 1/8 scale Judge Dredd

    Pretty close to being finished with this. Took a couple of shots with Sir Forscale just in case anyone was curious as to how big he is. Still need to work on the base and more highlights and shading on the shoulder pad. Discovered after I got him assembled that I'd misjudged the angel of the head and I need to re-do the highlights on the helmet. Oops! Still, the end is near!!

    Just showed up.

    Halcyon 1/8 scale Judge Dredd

    Thought I'd do some work on the bases after drill, pinning and magnetizing the figures. Went to mask off the shield and discovered I REALLY should have wiped the base down before priming. Stripped it all the way down with rubbing alcohol and am letting it dry overnight. I'll re-prime it tomorrow night. Sigh. I am pretty happy with the face. Painted all with Badger Stynylrez colored primers. Still have some more work to do on the helmet, but I think I'm going to call the skin done.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    Delivered from the last update: Summoning a Dragon, Chronicles of Run, Heresy Labs 1.2, SJG - Wizard/Melee, Bones IV, Greebo Games: Alastoran Demons & Hobby Holder II. Warehouse 13 board game - Over a year late. dice issues have maybe been resolved. Antenocities Workshop IMF vehicles: 8 months late. Company just got notified by their landlord that he wants to re-purpose the building they're in and they don't have funds to move. My hopes of this fulfilling are rapidly diminishing. They have offered the option to go to STL files, and worse case scenario is I'll go there, but I really don't want to pay someone else to produce these models, especially since money is a lot tighter now than it was when I bought into this and I have no idea how much these would cost to get printed at a resin like quality. Impact Miniatures Chibi Sisters of Conflict - Due in May, update pushed back most delivery to June now. Book of Monsters - Coming up on six months late, and it's been a few months since there was any updates. This was only a $9 buy-in so I'm not going to be heartbroken if nothing ever comes of it. Gangfight: generic rules: Two months late. Just sent out second beta playtest rules to certain groups. Seems to be some issues on the tea since they put out one update saying they were shifting to softback, then back pedaled after the screaming from backers and changed back to a hardback book. At least they're putting out updates? Tabletop Village - May 19, seems unlikely they'll deliver this month, but they've been making updates so I trust I'll get the product. Orc Warband by Yedharo - still calling for July delivery. Advertising for another KS for Dwarves in the next few weeks, but I don't know if I'll back without having gotten this one first. Bombshell Babes IV - December this year. Mantic Terrain Crate II - Jan 2020.

    Halcyon 1/8 scale Judge Dredd

    Progress! Actually this shot is about a week old. Spent the weekend shading all the green, as well as drilling and magnetizing him and Anderson. Green is Reaper Shadow Green and the gold is Scale 75 Dwarven Gold. I'll try and get better pictures of the current condition.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    My stuff showed up today! Just basically opened the box and did a quick inventory. I was surprised that the smaller figures were resin this time. The extra arm for Loreen was just tossed in the box with all the other add-ons and extras. Thankfully it didn't get broken. Quick look at the busts looks good, with a few parts that look like they'll need heat treating to straighten out. Pretty much the usual resin casting artifacts. Main parts look clean.
