First WIPs for my painted minis!

73 posts in this topic

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.

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! :)

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

 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 :)

Yeah, I like those. You did a good job giving them the creep factor.

I have a "cooperative" scenario in the works but I'll need probably 10 sets of zombies...going to be awhile.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

 

Vallejo game color Dead Flesh is what I'm using.

I've also made a purple/blue/red wash for the face that i'll use to add some color.
