Mars Attacks WIP (Modifications)

Recommended Posts

In the moment I'm working on Sidney & Henry
 

Henry had a Flea Circus which was not succesful anymore. Nobody was interested anymore to see such attraction. During the mars attacks he met a dying soldier who gave him a bottle with bug gas. Sidney used it on his fleas and started to fight back.

 

So I thought I need also fleas without riders and made them:

Still much work to do they need highlights and more.

I also started to make an energy shield for the Supreme Regent Ambassador:

 

I used a partable, transparent plastic ball.

I used sandpaper to get the hole on the bottom.

I think the SRA will get later a 35-40mm base.

Eventually he will get also an extra house rule, because he will be more visible in the game through the energy shield an bigger base.

 

I plan to make lightnings around it to hide later the partable part.

As you can see I painted already some martian grunts. More pictures will follow.

Fine and detailed work. I didn't even KNOW they made Martian Judges!

And the energy shield globe is quite an idea. It would not have occurred to me to try that...

Yeah, no dome on the head, no visible armor. But he missing dome was what disturbed me, why need other martians a dome and he not. Ok, I can find an reason. :-)

I liked the idea of that he has highest technology or make it with his mind.

This is one of the earlier pictures, I made.

 

I modified the martians with the big undercut.

Removed the arm which was glued on the martian.

Removed the undercut (left martian I did it already.

Glued it back with a 2-epoxy-glue.

 

Also in the picture the is the first test miniature I painted, which got aso removed the undercut.

I post only this picture, because I ruined sadly this globe.  I tried to remove the paint to make smaller lightnings.

 

Next week I will get new clear balls and try it again. Eventually change the axis of the lightnings. I'm also thinking about making green and blue lightnings.

Tomorrow I will check if I like the soldier and will proceed with him.

 

I know not everyone like Quicksade, but it is for some effects good. That is the reason why I didn't used it on the martians. Army Painters Martian example was already clear enough that I do not want it.

The Supreme Regent Ambassador and his hopefully future energy shield.

 

My biggest problem is that I do not know how to varnish it.

 

Any Sprays I tried and a matte varnish with brush clouds the plastic ball.

I tried a glossy varnish with a brush, but I see the brush strokes on it.

 

If someone has any ideas, please write.

 

I couldn't get me to make a step-by-step, but I got a tutorial with better pictures from >>here<<.

I used Vallejo paints: Magic Blue, Electric Blue, Blood Red and White

 

If I can solve the varnish issue, I will paint the same lightnings from the inside.

This energy shield has only few drawbacks.

 

I can't varnish it in the moment (see last post)

The mini in it is little dark in it.

 

I'm not sure if I can somehow put an LED under the base of the Ambassador.

 

Today I will check if I can make an electrical tea light smaller.
