Deadzone – Air Filtration Units &Barricades Complete!

The next batch of Antenocitis Workshop scenery is done and another layer of character added to the Deadzone Board :)

Extra-3

The barricades I wanted to stand out a bit and after having a search on google thought they would look great with hazard stripes. I did these primarily with masking with tape as well as some salt masking to get the worn old effect on themExtra-4 Extra-6Like the rest of the terrain I wanted these to look fairly old and well used so added some rusty looking areas with some watered down orange and a few layers of washes, mainly Agrax Earthshade and Nuln oil over the metal basecoat.

Dreadball – Skittersneak Stealers Commission Progress!

Painting has begun on my latest commission, a team of Veer-myn. So far I’ve got them undercoated and started wok on the armour. Here’s how they look so far…

Stealers-2 StrikersA-1 StrikersB-1 Guards-1

I have noticed a fair amount of mold lines, especially with the hep of these pictures, so the next stage is to go back and get them cleaned off(Restik can be such a pain :/). Luckily the vast majority are on areas that have yet to have any paint applied, which makes things much simpler. Following that I’ll be looking to get some basecoats down on all of the other colours after adding a bit of shading to the armour :)

Deadzone – Antenocitis Billboards Complete!

Extra-7

The first of my Antenocitis Workshop scenery for Deadzone is finished and  think it will definitely add even more flavour to the table…

Extra-8 Extra-9 Extra-10I’ve chosen to paint this stuff up to match the rest of the terrain and added the actual ads using the same method as the posters. I even made up a Dreadball poster for one to link it all into the universe as a whole. I was going to do it with my own team logos, but felt something more universally recognisable would suit better.

Dreadball – Veer-myn Commission!

I’ve got a new commission kicking off this week, a Veer-myn team for Dreadball…

Stealers-1

In addition to the standard team box the client is also after a Reek Rolat, who is one beast of a rat…

ReekThese guys will be getting done up in the Skittersneak Stealers colours, which will be interesting for me as it’s been a while since I’ve done an ‘official’ colour scheme. Looking forward to it though :)

Deadzone – Rebs Painting Guide!

In addition I also made up some extra cards for the ones I missed with the last batch…

Set-7 Set-8

As you may have noticed I also changed the colour of the text, after receiving some feedback, to a creamy colour so it should be easier to read.

As I’ve said that’s the Rebs done until the next survey is sent out at which point I’ll be getting 2 Striders, 3 Swordspawn as well as Eddak P’mera to bolster their numbers :D

Deadzone – Personalised Stat Cards!

I had an idea a while back for some personalised stat cards to go along side the Rebs, primarily because I love fiddling about on photoshop and having wee extras like this for my forces (hence all the logos and pitches for my DB teams :)). I then thought I would take it a step further and make some additions that would help out when playing in a campaign, such as space to add abilities, keep track of stat increases, exp, vet dice etc. and came up with these…

set Set1 Set-2 Set-3 Set-4 Set-5 Set-6

I also quickly realised this allowed me to have duplicates making it easier to keep track of the individual figures progress and in-game whatever items they may be lugging about. I have so far left the stat boxes, points etc. blank as the idea is to have them in card slips and be able to mark these in and change them as they progress, although I am thinking of having the original stats in place just faded a bit as a reminder of how far they can go up or if they die and are effectively reset. The only other thing I was considering was an item box to show what they are carrying or the room they have left. Although I think I may be restricted in space a fair bit, especially when it comes to the Zees who would need 3!

Anyway I would love to hear peoples thoughts on these and if there are any changes or additions you would make? It may also be on the cards (hehehe ;)) that I make up a generic one for general use if people thought it would be useful?

Deadzone – Extra Buildings!

I had one set of terrain left over still to build and decided I would do something a little bit different with it. The idea was to have a couple of structures that had a clear use before the containment protocol was put into effect.

The first I decided was going to be a small cafe like place…

Extra-1

I’m going to add one of the Antenocitis extractr fans to the roof as well as a couple of the vending machines in the wee alcove on the right to further add to it. I used plasticard to create the counter as well as a flat area to create a sign.

The second building is going to be something of a small bar…

Extra-2

This is going to have one of the larger extractors on top and the idea is to give it a bit a of a rebel theme, but have it looking burned out and abandoned, as though the local law enforcement didn’t look too kindly on the revolutionist ideals of the clientele. I’m also going to add to this by boarding up the windows and doors, this should add to the story of the building but also lets me have some LOS blocking terrain.

I’m still deciding whether these shold be the same colour as the rest of the terrain or something more in line with the character I’m trying to portray, would love to hear what you think?
