So after painting a bunch of fantasy adventurers, I decided I needed a bit of a change of pace. Enter my finds of some IMEF infantrymen and a mech from something I'm not familiar with (all Reaper minis).. and combine that with my extensive experience with military model kits. What you get is this project to paint the IMEF guys in colors inspired by the Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces; one is finished and the others are in progress.
The mech is being painted up in camo inspired by Japanese army tank camo colors to make it kind of a matching set. In the last pic you can also see my Victorian adventuress from the Raj, if you want to call it that.
Back in December, when I finally had some time and motivation to get back to painting, I decided I'd really quickly do up some IMEF marines. Just table top, didn't even clean up mold lines or anything.
Well, do primarily to being easily distracted by......what was I saying? Oh yes, easily distracted by other bright shiny objects, it took me over 4 months to get them all done. Here is a quick group shot.
I still don't have any real futuristic urban terrain to use to shoot these guys.
Reggie and Torch still need to be sealed, but looking at the forecast it could be June before it stops raining.
The rest have already seen combat as some mercs for hire last week in Savage Rifts.
WIP ( with many individual shots) is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78476-jasper-gets-back-to-painting-with-some-imef-marines/
Continuing on from my sculpting thread here, I've begun assembly and painting of my Rottweiler tank.
Started sanding and first coat of primer. Ran out of black primer, so stalled myself out.
I'm thinking this might be a practice piece for a ReaperCon entry of the same tank.
Started these back in October, specifically the Sara Blitzer conversion. Was working on them at Reapercon, finished them during the Minivember challenge. Based and sprayed last night. I also completed one more of the Tisdale cousins, from the BoGW. They are ready for the game tonight.
From left to right: 80024, 80049, 80014, 80019, 80021, 80010.
Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting. Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it.
Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted.
Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them.
So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded chair back from my wife. The hard wooden chair will not do for long sessions.....
