Thanks man. I'm trying to come up w/ a color scheme for my troops. Seems to be the hardest part! I like the ones you've done a lot. I do like the classic germans in black/grey as well. Decisions...decisions.

 Some updates.

Almost done with Joe, Starting on Rosie.

 

Think I might call Joe done. Just needs some flocking now. Started on the BBQ squad.

 

More pics in my BGG gallery. Link button is borked for me, dunno why.

None of the models are complete yet. They've all got more shading and highlights to be done. I do want them to pop more but I don't want them to come off too cartoony or bright.

I washed over the green with vallejo brown ink. I was going to highlight over that with the green but I kinda like how it came out. I might go with brown/bronze armor instead, still not sure.

I'm painting each squad separately but all with similar color schemes so they all match but don't look assembly line painted.

 Wow these look great so far. I am a huge fan of the work you did on the bases of the gorillas. Well done.

Those are fantastic.  The apes poses are sculpted so well, they lend themselves to some great basing and painting like you did.

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I'm getting ready to sit down for the night and hopefully finish these ones I've been working on.

As soon as my apes arrived in the mail I had to start painting them. They are indeed posed so well that I had to make those type of bases. :)

Check back for this evenings update!

Here's what I got done last night. I ended up getting sidetracked with some terrain building inspired by one of the guys on bgg.

Got the sand on the bases for my BBQ and Gunner squad.

Touched up Joe, Rosie, and the Gorillas. Added more details.

Looking forward to a weekend of painting! :)

More work on the Gorillas. Mouths, Teeth, Gauntlets, Straps.

My corner cover :)

More highlights and touch ups

The Gunners are next in line!

More pics in my gallery!

 Since my last update I've gotten a few things done.

I got to play a game w/ a friend over the weekend. It was good times.

 

I got my gunners based, washed and 1st highlights done. Also worked on my first two terrain pieces for the game. :)

 

Adding the snipers and recon boys

 

Each squad will have a diff base type as well as color scheme to help pick them out from a distance.

 

Terrain techniques by bgg member Kris' blog

 

Different base styles

Getting ready to get to work on them for the night.

Lots of pictures added to my BGG Gallery

 Also if you use the link to my BGG Gallery, all my pics are uploaded in (3264 x 1952) from my phone. I don't like how you can't click on images in this board to take you to a full size one. You can get pretty close up on the minis in that size :)

Mind you, this is just at first glance, but those bases are superb.
