Fireteam Zero paints

Recommended Posts

A number of years ago I backed the Fireteam Zero Kickstarter for the big box of Minatures. Needless to say it has been quite a few years for this to turn up, and at one point I was not expecting any models to be delivered. (Funded April 1st 2014)

 

Overall I am happy with the sculpts and quality of the models. Plenty can be used in a range of Wargames. I started with a simple collection and with both my two sons (4.5 and 6 years old) gave the following a coat of paint. The youngest helped with some of the base coats whilst the older did some of the basic highlighting.

First up is four fire bone tokens (?) these were painted as two spawn locations for a game I have in mind for the boys to play at some point.

Next up is a selection of insect creatures I plan to use these as Kaiju in Horizon Wars or CAV games as they look good at that scale.

Here is a ghost of some kind, the plan is to use him as a monster in Frostgrave

And finally one of the best models I have painted so far from this Kickstarter is a Purple Worm. Once again there are plenty of games that can use this model.

 

Comments or feedback welcome. These models will be added to my children's set of Bones monsters for regular use, as they have helped paint them.

They look amazing, congrats for the team work. Maybe a secondary color would add up and help pop out some details on the insectes, black mandibules or a cold color at the tip of the dorsal spikes for instance.

      Goblin Menace indeed!  I was doing fine with the other group of goblins I did 2 weeks ago, but these little green bast...guys were not as fun.  
       
      Wins:
      * Found an EXCELLENT new paintbrush - Master's Touch from Hobby Lobby.  Dang! I've been missing this level of spring in the bristles and fine edge with them.  Love it. 
      * Tried diluting steel color with black ink to help with application.  Worked great!  Will do again.
      * Switched the Sta-Wet Palette paper that came with it to just simple parchment paper.  I don't know who uses the actual paper in the Sta-Wet Palette, but that stuff is terrible!  
      * Still using as much breast cancer awareness color pink (got like 4 bottles...need to use!)
      * dry brushing the hair came out much better this time.  Lighter touch and more layers - worked better.
       
      Misses:
      * Eyes this time were more difficult.  Tried doing those chibi eyes, but it wasn't as expressive this time.  
      * Tried a base color of off-white in the eye - also didn't seem to give as much character to them.
      * Washed with Agrax Earthshade around the major bends and muscles.  Didn't seem to work as well this time.  I think it's time to try that black lining on the next goblin and see if Iike that instead.
      * using the new brushes have a bit of a learning curve to them.  Much more springy and reduced my need for pressure, however this caused some interesting streaks when I didn't mean to.  
      * I did it again! I tried using my finger to dab off an excess streak and ended up taking off some of the baselayer AND primer.  With that being the second time it's happened - the best way I can describe what I did was the scene in Top Gun where the flight tower Captain gets a second fly-by.  
       
      Overall the color of Goblin skin still works great, but basecoat of VCG Flat Green may not have been best.  May just add black to Goblin Skin and then lighten it up as I go next time.  
       
      Attempted different primers on them:
      Girl with spear - primed in black with Vallejo Black spray primer
      Chainmail goblin - primed in Vallejo Leather Brown spray primer (didn't like that as much...)
      Stone chuckers - both of them were done in paint-on Vallejo grey primer.  (worked best)
       
      Overall, they aren't bad, but they aren't my best.  Once I base them I'll feel better.  Might even go back after a few days to touch them up to see if I can straighten out the things I missed.
       
      As always - open to feedback.  Thanks for the tips on the Metallics thread.  I put it to use, but still learning.

      I checked out the Scooby Doo cooperative game play looks like something fun to play with the kids (since he will probably be 10 when it delivers )

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      3 new figures and a chance to get the original 10 from a previous project.

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?
