I wasn’t quite satisfied with the bases, I felt they needed just something a little more, and tufts sprang to mind. I’ve seen those cool “alien world” tufts and was planning on grabbing some eventually. But I was in my FLGS and saw the Gamers Grass Laser Plants Alien Rosettes and figured I’d give them a go.

They’re quite interesting. Pluck them from the sheet, bash them up a little bit to give them more dimension and super-glue them down. On the Gamma above, I built the rosette in three layers, sticking each down and allowing it to dry before adding the next layer.

For this one I used only a single piece. It adds a touch of life to the base without being over the top. For this one I used only a single piece. It adds a touch of life to the base without being over the top.

My take on the O-12 half of the Operation: Wildfire set done!
It’s the first “complete” set I’ve done from this range, from the 3 factions I own. They probably would have been done sooner if my painting lamp hadn’t died… ah well.

Above: Kappa, Kappa, Gangbuster, Epsilon with Sniper Rifle, Delta Hacker, Gamma with Feurbach

Haha! When I bought my new painting lamp, I also bought a light box. Experiments ahead!Haha! When I bought my new painting lamp, I also bought a light box. Experiments ahead!

I’m thinking that the bases could do with some plant life on them… Perhaps. Something I’ll look at in the future, but for now I’m happy with these. I’ll keep this theme going. I received a stack more O-12 for my birthday.
O-12 complete: 7/27

Between Defiance and Operation: Wildfire, I’ve quite a few O12 minis.

I wanted something darker than the studio colour scheme, though this ended up lighter than intended.

The ideas:

  • “Hard” Armour is blue, Fabric is grey, undersuit in metal.
  • Trim in metallics
  • Pouches and belts in black.
  • Shoulders in yellow, squad marking on left shoulder, faction on right.

Afterthoughts:

The blue is lighter than I intended, but actually that’s ok. Overall, the scheme is a bit too flat. The only bright spots are the face and shoulders. The “undersuit”, the texture that can be seen at the back of the lower legs and inside elbows. Doing that in metallic isn’t working for me. Similarly, the trim (runs vertically down the torso to the thighs) in metallic doesn’t really stand out.

18 Apr 22: ...test, test

A second test scheme for the O-12, using the same colour selection as the previous test. This time I’m going

  • Blue for the fabric
  • Black for the armour plates
  • Grey for the trim and the undersuit
  • Khaki for the belts and pouches

The mini had a black prime, followed by a white zenithal highlight. After all the base colours are down, I put a black AP Dark Tone wash over all the armour, guns etc. I avoided hitting the belts/pouches and skin.

19 Apr 22: Better? Better.

I definitely prefer this scheme. Of course I can now see a couple of things I need to tidy up, but I can do that and finish the basing next.
O-12 batch 1: 1/7 complete (pretty much, :-D)
