|"Put them all together they spell LASER!"|
As I planned on using this model as an experiment to see what "Vallejo" paints would make a good base colour for Gold, apart from my trusty Heavy Sienna, I gave the figure an undercoat of Heavy Ochre, and then washed it with some heavily watered-down "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade. This gave the miniature a far less shadowy look than when I ordinarily wash them with "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade, and made the Living Laser appear far brighter in colour once I'd dry-brushed him with more "Vallejo" Gold.
In addition to Arthur Parks' alter-ego I have managed to start painting the "Renedra Limited" plastic gravestone bases I plan on using for some more Weird War Two-themed games of "Lost Patrol". These 40mm circular bases aren't quite as elaborate as the first three I assembled. But contain some nice inscriptions which I felt would be overlooked if I cluttered them up too much.
The models themselves should be fairly simply to finish off now the headstones have been undercoated, washed and dry-brushed. Although I do plan to go over them all with a lighter grey in order to bring out each sculpt's impressive carvings.
|"Mantic Games" Scenery WIPs - A barricade and discarded door|
These plastic fortifications appear to be constructed with all manner of everyday objects, such as wooden boxes, metal bars, corrugated panels and beer kegs, and should help me separate the different zones of my "Zombicide" board from one another. I also hope to paint at least five different coloured discarded doors for my tabletop, to use as entranceways into the different ruins...
