Week 21 - You Knew it was Coming...

So I haven't managed to finish any models this week as I was enjoying myself at Armageddon Comic Expo this weekend. I did manage to get some work done on the six survivor minis, getting the base colours mostly on Amy, Doug and Josh. The other three have just had the base skin tone done, mostly because I dropped my flesh paint and had to use as much of the puddle as I could...

I'm sure nobody will be shocked to learn that I have assembled some of the Season 2 Dreadball models already and started painting them as well. Specifically I have assembled the whole Void Sirens team. I decided to go for a white base colour, unfortunately my white spray paint is pretty bad so I'm not terribly impressed with how they have been under-coated. I am most of the way through the base colours for the ladies, I just need to add more grey to particular areas and add a third central colour. The visors will be in that colour and the odd other highlight spot.

So I have been looking back at what I have done so far. Lately it is starting to look like I paint rather poorly... This is one of those things that bothers me but is a result of trying to increase how quickly I paint models. The zombicide models don't have the greatest detail or definition so I am using that to justify not doing a good job on them. What I hope to do is really start cranking out some of the Warpath/Dreadball models in order to complete the challenge, then move on to painting some nicer quality heroes etc. All that time at Armageddon has made me want to make a Cosplay costume as well. I have been thinking Jason Todd / Red Hood. Thoughts?

  1. Only if you go as Jason Todds grave. That whiney little punk shoulda stayed dead

  2. Hah, I admit I don't know much about him as Robin but he seems quite awesome in the 'Red Hood and the Outcasts' story arc.
