This would be the Gimp of the club. Probably sleeps in a locked chest in the basement.

The Others: Sloth controller, the man in the trenchcoat.

I originally thought I would do this one up as John Constantine the Hellblazer, on account of the trenchcoat. But him being blonde made the hair looked far to samey with the trenchcoat and all. So I did the film version instead 😛

I took some pics of the back as well, but they turned out blurry, every single one of them. It’s not all that interesting anyway, just a tentacle or two poking out here and there.

Sedition Wars Strain Phase 2 Exoform, “Quasimodo”

The Strain infects living hosts and by forced mutation rapidly transforms them to living weapons incorporating flesh and machine. Each “phase” being a stage og further mutations making the host/victim so much more formidable.

So the phase 2 exoform is a single step up from the unarmed mook cyber zombie…

The second phase of mutations making it both larger and with the left arm turned into an effing plasma gun!

Too small a base for my tastes though. Even though I have added a metal weight beneath it, the mini keeps tipping over at the slightest provocation.

Damn those Sedition Wars restic minis are fine!

The Others: 7 Sins: Hell Club: Gourd & Vex (too many colons!)

The Others: 7 Sins is a board game that kickstartered about a year ago, and that recently was delivered in full in a single shipment. Tentacular, Lovecraftian horror meets cyberpunk future when tentacular demonic forces embodying the 7 cardianl sins invade the last  city on Earth, where members of the high tech human F.A.I.T.H organisation fight the demons and their minions to delay the inevitable end of all things.

There are so many excellent minis here.

 

We start with the Hell Club, a group of humans plotting evil, very reminiscent of the Cenobites from the Hellraiser series, being heavily into strap’n’leather rubber clothing and body modification…

 

First out are Gourd and Vex, Minime cenobites. Both of short stature and shorter tempers.

An interesting pair, obviously very much in love. ah. I am such an incurable romantic.

Go get the Gimp for some fun and games!

Sedition Wars: The Doom Slayer Vanguard Trooper

Inspirational music:

 

I play some DOOM every once in a while, and every time I do I think of Sedition Wars (because, let’s face it, the inspiration is apparent.)

Making up my mind to do something about it, I set out to try and make a speed paint version of the Doom Slayer colour scheme. This was the result:

161113-sedition-wars-vanguard-triooper-doom-slayer 161113-sedition-wars-vanguard-triooper-doom-slayer-back

Starting on a black undercoat, a two-tone brown/leather brown base coat. Olive heavy drybrush, then lighter yellow olive drybrush. Desert tan gun casing and a mix of yellow olive and desert tan for helmet and details. Some black and yellow for bits. Angels dark green on the visor, and just a few line highlights here and there.

Base drybrushed boltgun metal, washed with strong tone quickshade ink and some blobs of red quickshade ink. Solid black rim. Done.

 

Since the Sedition Wars kickstarter rewards turned out so dissappointing for many backers, the game and its minis have been consigned to oblivion it seems.

McVey Studios apparently have dropped the line entirely, to concentrate on making minis for others. (as in The Others: 7 sins game and such like).

For my part, after getting over the surprise of “premium plastic minis” turning out to be restic, I found the Sedition Wars mins to be quite nice actually. After growing familiar with the material, I find I do not agree with all the internet hate directed towards restic. It is good for it’s use. The Sedition Wars minis also prove that the material can make really good minis.

At any rate, after spending a lot of time prepping all that restic, they have been consigned to the drawers of doom with heaps of other KS minis like Dreadball, Deadzone and Mars Attacks!.

I originally thought I would like to do the Vanguard Troopers like Stormtroopers, all in white and black. Since white and black are inherently hard to do, at least quickly, I put them off and off and after a while moved on to other things.

Until now.

Also, I think these will do nicely for Enforcers for Deadzone and Warpath.
