Aliens

Recommended Posts

Well I haven't painted a miniature since November. I decided to go with something simple. I had painted a Terminator and a Predator type figure last year, so I thought an Alien was the most likely canidate. It took me awhile to find the right mini. Luckily I found what I wanted. I stated with a coat of black for the primer. Next I highlighted the base with bleached bone. I kept it simple, trying to match the bases on the other minis. After finishing the simple base, I gave the entire figure a wash of purple ink, followed by blue and green ink in various spots. I next highlighted with Nausating Blue, followed by Hideous Blue with slight highlight of Enchanted blue with a splash of white added. Of course, I painted the teeth with silver. I sealed the mini in a couple of sprays of Dullcoat. When dry, I painted several sections with gloss to give it that wet look. Not overly impressive, but it was nice getting back into painting after a four month hiatus. Now I need to get a mini ready for the Spring Mini Exchange. Back to my lurking...... Thanks for taking a peek.

I think the Terminator and the Alien are old Leading Edge minis, but the Predator is Copplestone Castings.

 

You just need Robocop and you'd have the ultimate '80s sci-fi movie mini collection.

The Terminator is from EM4, old cast from Grenadier Future Wars line. The Predator is from Copplestone Castings. They are called Hunter Aliens. Funny thing is he also sculpted the Robots for Grenadier. The Aliens I searched high and low for. Apparently the company that makes them doesn't advertise them, due to copyright laws. I believe it was Eureka, but don't qoute me on it. Thanks for the comments. Hope this helps.

Cool. Good to see you painting again WTW. I always like seeing your stuff. Plus, you're a fellow Iowan, so you can't be all that bad... :lol:

 

Any chance of getting a closer shot of the Alien model?

Thanks for the great comments. I have three more aliens to paint. I might try variations of color, so I can tell them apart. I also have an old female sci-fi mini that looks a lot like Ripley. I believe she is an old Grenadier mini as well. So I might paint her next, then on to my Spring Mini Exchange. Just have to figure out a great mini to paint for the exchange. Thanks again.
