Decided to start on my Counterblast! figs in the new year, and I know there are some others on the forums here that were in on that kickstarter, so figured I'd start and open topic.


I went in for the Ultonium level and got one of each starter set.





That's a good sized pile o' figs....

I'm planning to start with the Mekkus.  Let's open those bags and take a look.





Ummmm, hmmm.   I need to go sort out what belongs with what I think....

Hmm, had thought I'd posted the picture of the Defender #1 after I sorted out which bits were for it and primed it.


Ah well, here's the pic.




I plan to paint the Mekkus at home, so it'll be getting some attention once my D&D Gnome is finished.



And I've decided I'd do the Lancers at work (since most of them are single piece figures) after I finish Balto.  I've got the first two primed and ready to go as soon as I decide on some colours.




These guys should be a blast to paint!

Hmmm, not sure what happened the other day.  My post of the Defender vanished (or never posted, could have been my internet I guess).

But I'd also posted a pic of my first "finished" figure of 2015.  Of course all I had to do was base him (and I did a very quick simple one), the rest was painted last year some time.


Anyway, here he is.




BdE bot.

Started some base coating on the Lancers today while waiting for washes to dry on Balto.




Trying out some colours.  Kind of want to do olive as a colour to tie them all together.  Going for the classic bomber jacket for this guy.  And since he's a low level mook, wen't for the red shirt....

Skin is starting with pumpkin orange, which I keep using for everything...




This guy (isn't he an awesome fig?) just got a bit of colour where it was already going on the the Illyrian.

Oh dear, 15 mm?  A new line?  Game?


More work on the Illyrian today (still haven't picked out new greys for the Lanceguard).




I'm pretty happy with how he's coming along.  R-touched up the eye, did a wash and highlights on the olive, did highlights on the black, and did a wash on the jacket.

Still need to highlight the jacket, do the metal bits on his knees and boots )and belt buckle, and then do the gun.  And of course the base, I'll keep simple since it's a gaming piece.

Hey Jasper, I am thinking since yesterday... with that huge an eye, why not be brave and use a thin wash to shade it like an actual ball (along the lower lip, I mean)?


I think it would help it be more 3D and less flat, for such a focal point of the mini. I would use a very dilluted desaturated red...

Hmmm, I may try that for the next one (I have a few Illyrians) but I want to get this guy finished up on Friday (which is the next chance I'll have to paint).  I don't want to try something like that with him this close to finished in case I create too much work to do messing it up.


I did try the little reflection dot today, does it look to be in about the right spot?




I also highlighted the jacket and worked on the gun.  I like most of it, but want to change the bright green side bits.  I'm thinking maybe diagonal strips as if it was showing the power level, or something like that.  Otherwise maybe a metal accent there,

The white spot looks right to me.


For the green on the gun, do you have a light, bright neon-like green? I am thinking diagonal solid line on that green, if the color is brighter enough, would give it kinda a glow. Alternatively, if you have a green ink, white lines and a green ink wash!

Started feeling kind of crappy yesterday, so I did a little work on the Illyrian and brought him home with me last night.




Went with something fairly simple with the gun, as I had a bit of a headache.


I got most of the simple basing done last night, with just a quick drybrush left to do.

Seems it was for the best as I woke up with a fever this morning (my wife's been sick for two days now, so not overly surprising).


I did a few finishing touches once the Tylenol kicked in and he's been posted to show-off now, along with the BdE Bot I finished a bit ago.

      The challenge is 30 minis in 30 days (not necessarily 1 mini each day.) I've been prepping a few figures each week since August, and this year's theme is Science Fiction: 
      Team Terminator:

      XairBot (Small) 49012
      XairBot (Medium) 49013
      CyberReavers I (2) 50354
      CyberReavers II (2) 50355
      Team Survivor:

      HESCO barriers (2)
      Starship Generator 80053
      Tess, Adventuring Heroine 49020
      Slade, Cyborg Hero 49018
      Nova Corp:Female 80013
      Nova Corp:Soldier 80012

      Gothic Tank Traps/objective markers (2)
      3d printed scatter terrain
      Crates (Large and Small)(2) 77248
      Jersey Barriers (2)
      More Stuff:

      IMEF: Reggie Van Zandt 80017
      Viceroy Enforcers (3) 30029
      Starship Generator 80053 #2
      Obligatory Fantasy:

      Benedict Baker 
      elf w/bow
      DGS games female
      Not shown: Blood Nebula Mercenary 49017, Power Generator 72611 (2)-- still in blister packs. 
      That gets me to 30-ish, depending on whether I count things like the barriers and crates as single pieces or not.  Still working on getting the last few pieces washed and primed and identified.

      Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far.
      They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.

      I went with saturated colors on this one.  Enough of the black and brown, this Sascha is from a dimension where the future's so bright you gotta wear shades.

      Here's a few of the 3d printed characters from the crowdfunded project by Kazrak Studio.  They were done in resin, and have some very fine details. 
      John H. Damon, who likes to read old books written in strange languages: 

      Dr Weird Psychic, a student of the mystic arts who needs no introduction:

      Laura Craft, field archaeologist and explorer:

      And dear Dr Home, the brilliant surgeon with a lousy bedside manner: 

      All are presented on bases from Secret Weapon.

      Black on black, your standard sci-fi street-runner.  Gave his coat a touch of purple just to give the eye something to look at.
