Got a Reaper order the other day that included Aztec and Skids, the two IMEF I didn't have.  So a quick coat of Brown Liner:



as I put out too much brown liner, Sire Forscale jumped in to keep it from going to waste.


Then, since I was sitting at my desk, and felt like doing a little painting, I did a couple of coats on all the leather bits on the 9 IMEF left, including the new guys.

Finally have some time for painting again.  Picked out 4 (that's about the max I can work on at a time, I think) and cleaned them up.  These 4 were picks as I'll be using the Tanned Skin triad on all of them.



Camera went a little light for some reason today, could be the tea cup.....


Letting them get good and dry, then I'll hit them with a strong tone wash in a bit.

Finally another chance to paint.

I decided to start with faces while I was fresh and as steady as I get.



Guess I should figure out their names.....Sarah, Jigsaw, Jazz and Slyder ( 80021, 80049, 80019, 80050 ).

So following on from Nick, I was just doing eyes with a bit of Walnut Brown (I think that's what I used for Nick, I didn't actually go back and check....).

Works fine for the guys, they all have deeply recessed eyes anyway, but Sarah looked wrong, so I had to do a bit more for her.  It was either that or paint the metallic so it looked like the sniper had ocular implants of some sort.


Still was feeling ok, so went on to starting on the khaki pants and shirt.  Got through two of them before my neck said it was time for a break.



I'm using the Terran Khaki triad for this and I struggle a bit with it.  The highlight is, I think, too opaque for my liking. So I thin and thin and it still goes on too strong, so then I have to go back to the mid and even shadow to bring it back.  Probably works great for drybrushing though....


Hopefully get through the rest of the khaki this evening.

Slow but steady wins the race; good work on them!

Hopefully I'm going to have some time to paint, and I'm going to focus on one project for a bit (well two, as there is the spring exchange thingy....) and actually get this one completed fairly soon now, before I go back to playing with tanks and big stompy robots.  This is mostly because I've run out of room on the shelf I place all my "current projects".....

Yeesh, that was too long a "break" between sessions.  Real life got rather busy for a bit but hopefully things have settled down for a bit now.


Grabbed a few minutes yesterday to paint but spent the whole time fixing a few specs of primer (from other figs) that apparently hit 3 of them.  :angry:

Today I went over all the leather and put some red on the medic's crosses, and did the hair on the sniper (good enough anyway).



Front shot is a bit dark for some reason.....


Left to do are the blacks and metallics, however I'm doing some goggles, and the bases.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
      Comments, criticisms and advice as ever more than welcome!

      So "Ashlyn of the Red Rovers of Triboar," what's a ranger doing in these parts, the last thing we need is another lawman.
      the red cloak is a very bright red I'm afraid my camera wont capture with the shading etc, u can't tell. I know a red cape is flashy but she's is a Red Rover and they specifically ask me to send Ashlyn right over....hehe childhood memories.

      Presenting Tirinha Fallowheart, a Dreadmere faction mini made by Reaper.
      Didn't put much effort into this one, it's a nice mini but I think mine is a bit miscast (her details are a little soft and mushy in places).
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
