A Game of Clones -Dreadball Zee team done.

How many bad pun ape/monkey/chimp/primate/clone names can we come up with before settling on a name for this team?


140825 zee team

Ryse of the Planet of the Apes? The Similar Simians? 12 Monkeys? Jacta Alea Apes? Legionem Simiarum? Insane Clone Posse?

Seems like getting the Jack-yellow on the bases smooth took longer than actually painting the minis. Then again, there are quite a few of them.


Off the shelf: Reaper Bones, Deadzoners, another Mantic Werewolf

So the first weekend after being back from the summer holiday I had some hours to spare and have finished the following:


140817 bugbear front140817 bugbear side140817 bugbear back

Reaper Bones Bugbear. This one has been sat half done on the shelf for quite some time now. Gah!

I do seem to have accumulated quite a few of these larger ones. I am thinking of putting together an ogre army.


140817 plague grunts

Three Deadzone Plague generation 3s. Here is the loader from the mortar squad, the grenade launcher and a standard mook. So now I have a massive 4 mooks and 2 dogs finished. There are four more mooks (and a mortar) still on the shelf. The gen 1 and 2s, terrorton and swarm are not even primed yet. I have run out of spray can primer, and have decided to see if I can get my 20 year old airbrush to live again. so I have ordered a bottle of vallejo airbrush primer. I do seem to have an awful lot of unprimed minis lying around, and if I am able to make a workable booth for airbrushing I might just be free of both weather constraints and the far too expensive spray cans.

Also finished is the second of the Deadzone Mercenaries:

140817 nastanza

The Eldar Asterian Nastanza, the Twilight Huntress.

I am not really painting the mercenaries in any particular order. Got one of the Squats Forge Fathers (is it still a Forge Father when it is female? Or are they then called Forge Mothers?) on the half painted shelf.


I fancied painting something simple and brown today


140817 clay golem 1 140817 clay golem 2

Reaper Bones Clay Golem.

The pants actually have a different base colour although this is not really evident in the pictures. The flash tends to wash out many of the colour variations.


140817 werewolf brown

The third Mantic Werewolf.

This was painted in parallell with the golem, but used different mixes of the same browns, and had a different base coat. IRL they are not as similar as in the pictures. Simple but effective paint jobs.


Also I have been working on the zee team, but they are not quite ready yet. It takes ages to get smooth enough yellow borders on the bases.
