Cav Adon painted force (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Greetings all as the summers now over I'm going to be painting again so I'm going to be painting an Adon Cav force theme that I've decided will be a jungle style Camo. I'll add to this thread as I did with the UTF force that I did earlier in the year http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78751-cav-utf-painted-force-pic-heavy/&tab=comments#comment-1678472

 

so heres the 1st test batch that I'll be sorting A Mantis, Kestrel, Bishop & Ogre Cavs with some ground support from Some Chieftains, Commander I & Centipede ground vechiles.

Look forward to seeing this :winkthumbs: just don't expect to see a Savage Coyote level of painting mine are always quick & dirty ::o::poke:

 

Just a quick update I've decided just to do the Kestrel and Chieftains 1st to see how to quickly get the scheme sorted and the quickest way to progress with it. Next is the strips which will be a yellow colour just deciding best way to do them paint straight yellow or will probably paint a light grey 1st then yellow over the top.

 

base Green colour added

Not a lot of progress on the Cavs :down:

 

But the Wood elves are ready for shading & final details to do the eyes or not that is the question ...

Evening all,

 

Just waiting for the shading to dry on my BB figures so I cracked on and did some quick painting on the Adon army, I'm looking at a zig-zag / crazy lines on these, tried using sand as the 1st colour before putting the mustard colour on top hopefully keep the mustard colour a bit stronger next I'll pick out the strips with a dark green line

Look a little messy at the moment but the dark lines and details that I'll pick out such as the cockpit should hopefully save them as you can see I paint quick & dirty ::D:

 

Raided my bits box and came up with some re-roll and turn/scoring markers for my Undead team

I have a large collection of BB figures that haven't been touched for years and painting these has given me the urge to paint all my teams up again might start another thread with those in it

 

Catch you all laters

Right Some forward momentum with the painting, BB figures pretty much finished bar the bases & Numbers so heres my progress on the Adon vehicles :

 

Added the darker strips tanks look ok Cav :unsure: but we'll how they look when finished

So getting there once shaded will be interested to see how they look after all these are test pieces for the rest of the anon force I'm also starting a new thread for the Bloodbowl figures

I love the BB figs! Took 2nd place in our league last round with my Female Chaos Dwarf Team, Pandora's Manic Sisters, was great watching a bunch of Lavendar clad loonies whoop bigger teams!

Back on this subject, I have learned over many years of painting minis, when I'm going to use yellow, I prime with white, then do the yellow and everything else. It really makes it easier and the yellow "pops" better.

thanks, yep these are tester pieces i suppose I could reverse the strips by painting yellow 1st with the green bits being added but might be a bit fiddly compared to the current way will tinker to see the best result for minimal effort as I've got 30+ of these to paint in all

Yeah, when you are painting that many figs, every shortcut helps.

Yep i've got 40 cavs and 32 vehicles & 4 aircraft to do for this force...::o: must be mad ::D:

 

Right got some progress on these done the shading still quite happy with the tanks but still unsure about it on cavs will have to do a couple more test pieces, also cut the flying base down for one of the graves tanks as i think they look a little high atm you can se the two heights in the pictures

      Garghuk got painted a few months ago, but I don't recall posting him.  He was still sitting out when I grabbed the camera earlier so I took a few shots of him as well.  He had started off as a "learn to use the airbrush" project, but given I didn't really know what I was doing he ended up getting mostly done by hand.

      Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things.
       
      Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned:
       
      You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic
       
      Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts.
       
      I also had the chance to gain some experience on  paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP)
       
      Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants:
       
      Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions.
       
      Tasks to be completed:
       
      Figures Needed
      Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit)  
      Wight Conversion
      Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope  
      Details to be included
      Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc)  
      Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed)
      Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP)  
      Base mounting system
      Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces

      I'm just about finished with my final piece for ReaperCon, and I needed a break. I needed to paint something fun and with no consequence. I've been eyeing this sculpt from across the room, and I just decided to go for it. Nothing super crazy, just some true metallics, which I haven't done much with in some time. Enjoy!

      Here is my Reaper Bones Ogre Guard, 77456.  It took a long time to finish the skin.  I had a hard time getting it right with dry brushing layer upon layer and several washes, but I like the way it turned out.

      Bones 4 hill giants and Bones 3 ogres, along with Garghuk the Bones Black sample figure. All painted with citadel contrast paints.
