The last two days have been pretty busy and I'm pleased to say the 28mm figures are now finished. I thought I'd start the final pictures with the large slug that has been sitting on my desk all this time.20230713_221708.thumb.jpg.44dae5e9d489bf249b862b593ff99cdd.jpg20230713_221717.thumb.jpg.8347c9557fd2d3df3e567ff875bdcfaa.jpg

 

Next up is the robot/mech suit.20230713_221607.thumb.jpg.29591d15b6d7669a4f5390e58bdcc9da.jpg20230713_221646.thumb.jpg.86697fad113984d26445b55d728b1afd.jpg20230713_221652.thumb.jpg.6238038135774e26f434a89c88314869.jpg20230713_221657.thumb.jpg.e4d783b10f259c03ac77dfc09f968bd3.jpg

I had originally painted the base in red like the 15mm figures but decided against it. Realizing I would probably never use it with my Ion Age figures I opted to paint it in my regular dirt base style so it would be more compatible with my larger miniature collection. Liking how it turned out I definitely see a future with this as a favorite proxy.

The muster.

As with the robot/mech suit I went with a dirt base on these figures simply because I have no actual plans for them. So having them based like the majority of my collection just seems like a good idea.

With all the 28mm figures finished I decided to go ahead and paint what I have on hand in 15mm. I thought what I had left would keep me busy for awhile but it looks like this project is approaching its end, at least until I buy some more figures.

 

After cleaning, basing, and priming the remaining Yordan figures I got to try something new, basecoating with an airbrush. 20230716_202020.thumb.jpg.e2396bea54e4f5d46ac9387b87b0e76d.jpg20230716_202027.thumb.jpg.6254e6637997dba5689e085f02ad7523.jpg

I think they came out alright but I've certainly got a lot to learn. I'm not sure how much I actually intend to use my airbrush but as far as basecoating goes I'm sold.

 

 

After a couple of days off for the wife's birthday I'm back at the desk tonight. I had thought I'd only paint the shoulder pads but again I found a real groove and went with it.

Aside from one metallic, the sword's glow, and of course general cleanup they're almost done. Looks like I better start thinking about my next project.

Thought this project was on hold for a bit after finishing the batch from last night. Turns out I completely forgot I had purchased two sets of the limited edition figures so I could paint them in both color schemes. So rather than looking for a new project I started in on the last six figures.20230719_204533.thumb.jpg.2cc91d25e1aac9199a789e9cb2165c47.jpg

Using most of a session I cleaned them up, based them, and even primed them (though the picture is obviously from before that last step). It's funny this may actually be the latest I've ever primed anything. 

 

Wanting to get a bit of actual painting in though I went ahead and grabbed the vampire the kid had started painting. Having asked multiple times now when they wanted to finish it they recently said they weren't interested. So I went ahead and added the finishing touches.

Having finally decided on my next project, even going so far as ordering some new miniatures, it seemed prudent to finish this one first. So over the last two days with countless little sessions the final Prydians are finished. 20230808_214129.thumb.jpg.da554ab87cd1165b2a57ca501e69a71f.jpg20230808_214145.thumb.jpg.85180ffb4250769f2a60d25130a719e8.jpg

I know I'll be adding to this collection in the future but for now everything I own is painted. It's a pretty good feeling too.
