Just in time for fall...

The Summer of deadzone has come to an end, and these minis are fully painted (at least to my standard 🙂 ). Pretty happy with the result, and to conclude my first project blog. I know for certain i would not have finished had it not been for the external pressure it created. (i probably would have gotten distracted with some dwarfs, thats how it usually goes)

Starting to look like something...

Quick update.

  • (slightly over-)did some weathering on the armor (lesson learned)
  • painted the weapons with gunmetal –> black wash –> drybrush metal (a true paint scheme classic) Detailed with tinny tin  from vallejo
  • Did the weapon ammo (?) (green plasma?) with a Vallejo fluor yellow with green wash over. Didnt end up as smooth as i hoped. Might try a gloss varnish over it.

Only leather details on the helmets and hair left to paint now, and basing, looks like making this blog to push myself into actually completing a painting project by the end of summer will succeed. Yey!….

I veer(myn)ed off course....

I got distracted. My local club had a painting challenge for Kings of War and so i painted some vanguard abyssals for a while. Im back on track now though.

After pondering my colour choices for a while i ended up painting the armor with a 50/50 mix of vallejo scarlet red and hull red, with some red wash and drybrushing for the finishing touches. I added some german grey on the bigguns armor to make them less monotone. I also painted the cloth wraps around the ankles, nothing fancy there just a beige colour, Sepia wash and beige highlights.

(The painting soundtrack for this session https://youtu.be/XnxSLwLFfNY  more autumn vibes this time)

Pants to the people

Another short painting session and this time everyone got pants (wash and highlights still pending). You can see them all sporting the hottest colour of the season, German field grey.

I have yet to decide on the colour for the armor, might choose a darker green, something that pops on the table… colour matching is hard, all i know is i’m not a huge fan of mantic’s choice of yellow.

(last nights planned game session got cancelled due to the gaming club suddenly not being open after all, which is ok as it gives me time to actually glue things together)


The chosen summer jam for this painting session was João Donato’s album Lugar Comum,  https://open.spotify.com/album/4vAF2zm6DjT18v2sgViuVT?si=LK2jNNHmQPaG5s1PMHjnHg

First things first, I’m playing my first propper Deadzone game later this week so have to start with getting together minis for a list.  I had allready glued these and primed them a year or so ago so today was about getting the basecoat for the skincolour done (a bit short on time today). Im no master painter,  just gotta look decent on the table and im happy. Not quite sure how to paint the fur on the upper arms. Might try drybrushing?
