A quick post here to round off the month… I finished painting the last of my kill team terrain that I got from the Sector Sanctoris kill zone.
All were painted in acryllics then given an oil wash to bring out the details. A chaos cul;tist made his way intosome of the photos from a sense of scale. I may go back and add some zombie arms poking through one of the grates yet… undecided on that as it would involve basing it.
It will be good to game with fully painted terrain now.
PS- here is a picture of me in my favourite Tshirt for IRO’s March challenge….
GW briefly sold the sprue of the chaos models from the BlackStone Fortress game seperately. I picked a set up to use as a Kill Team as it has some interesting models in they should play different to what I already have. The mix of figures you can have really appeals to my in fluff/ lore terms as it seems to encapsulate the idea of a Chaos Warband really well in a way that hasn’t been done before.
I’ve just finished up the first half of that box.
The Rogue Psyker and Chaos Space Marine.
The Traitor guard (lovely figures these- wish more poses were available).
I’ll start work on the Beastmen and Negavolt Cultists as well as the bigger pack of cultist to go with them
Nicola and I have started to play the excellent new Viking skimish game from Little Wars TV Ravenfeast. I figured we would need a few houses to make the game more interesting and go with the one Dark Age building I already had from War Bases in MDF.
A quick browse on thingiverse found this file of an A frame house, so I ran 2 off and we painted one each.
A quick print on the coarsest setting and it has turned out great. Here is a 28mm plastic figure for scale.
I was kindly given some of the old chaos Spaqce Marines by a friend so decided to paint them up as the infamous Alpha Legion. Notorious for the cunning and deceit, and the subject of many a meme, they look quite fancy in teal and silver. Also in the game lore they make extensive use Chaos cultists which is something that appeals. I also bought the commander from the Blackstone Fortress set seperately to go with them.
Within the squad I have a leader with power fist, a heavy bolter, a flamer, a standard and then a mix of bolters and chainswords with bolt pistols.
I thinking of getting a box of the fallen to convert and paint up in robes to play on their in universe nature.
Either way what I have now will make for a good Kill Team force.
I previously posted a couple of examples of the Zuk van that I printed out in 20mm, this time I simply rescalled the 3D model file and reprinted them to match my 28mm models. As you have probably guessed these are heading into my Zone Alpha terrain collection.
I did one van a military green colour whilst the other is more beat up with different coloured doors and more rust.
The bit of scatter terrain is also 3D printed and should make a nice bit of setting for a bandit camp.
Quick post today… I painted these a while ago but given the recent weather I only photographed them the other day (I tend to do all my photos on the same day then blog tyhem seperately).
I got a pack of dogs and a pack of wolves from Warbases to use in any 28mm game- initially for Zone Alpha wandering hazard but I’m sure they’ll appear in the Dark Aghe games I planned too. They were quick to paint with the usual mix of washes and drybrushes.
It should be no secret that one of my favourite sculptor is Mark Copplestone; his future War range for Grenadier in the early 90s made a big impression on me. Since then he has gone back to his SF figures and it has been nice to finally get some paint on some of them.
These 10 figures are billed as ‘Partisans’ and are available here.
The ten of them come with four different gun types, two variations of assault rifles, an LMG and a SMG. Given their Russian/ Soviet stylings I painted them in a mix of green, khaki and Russian camo. As such they’ll be making an appearance in my Zone Afla games quite often. They are probably a bit too military to be fitted into neon drenched cyberpunk streets but I’ve my eye on some other models to fulfil those needs.
From the 3D printer we have a 28mm figure sized junk pile and 20mm scaled abandonded car. Quick little prints that I did ages ago when I was getting the hang of my machine. Thought I’d get some paint on them as they will add a bit of character to a table top, not much else to say about them.
