Dreadball – MVPs out the Wazoo

MVP-Group

Well I’ve been feeling under the weather for the last few days, which is good and bad. The good is loads of painting has been done whilst I recuperate, the bad is I’ve not been able to get any photos to show all you lovely people what I’ve been up to :(. Starting at the weekend I decided to blast through the MVPs I have had sitting for a wee while, as well as the six(Blaine, Painmaster Yurik, Riller, Milesandre, Wyn Greth’zki and Nightshade) that I’m painting up for a mate in return for the Marauder and Corp boosters used to add the reinforcements you saw last week to the Slammers and Centurions. Anyway, enough blabbering from me, here they are…

Blaine

This guy was a joy to paint. The model is absolutely brilliant. I didn’t want to deviate too much from the standard scheme, but a hint of turquoise always makes things look better 😀

Painmaster Yurik

Painmaster Yurik

Another fantastic model who I thought looked great in the Mantic images so stuck with that scheme.

Riller

Riller

This guy I’m not so much of a fan of and I think it shows in the paint job :(, gonna have to go back and do up/add a bit more to him until I’m a bit happier.

Wyn Greth'zki

Wyn Greth’zki

Was’nt a fan of this chap, but surprisingly enjoyed painting him. The scheme for this guy came from googling a certain famous hockey player (bet you can’t guess which one :-P) and matching the jersey colour.

Nightshade

Nightshade

This is probably one of my favorite MVP models, and also the one I felt was the easiest to paint. Won’t bloody well stand up though

Mellisandra

I really hated this model when I first saw it, and this one sat tauntingly on my desk until last. But after just the first layer of turquoise I began to like it more and more (turquoise REALLY does make everything better :D). I think its because the studio paint job really doesn’t show off the details of the model, not saying it’s bad, just not right for this mini.

Number 88

Number 88

Another fantastic mini, and one I wanted to keep fairly simple.

Ludwig

Ludwig

This gentleman was painted up to go alongside my Z’zor team, but with a slightly darker green to add a slight variance. This one was a pain in the arse to be honest, the sheer amount of mold lines was ridiculous, and I kept finding more once painting had begun :(.

Wildcard

Being a Tron fan I loved this mini from the first time I saw it and could not resist doing it in the standard colour scheme.

The Praetorian

And finally this massive chap(seriously, he’s bloody massive). This one I wanted to keep fairly simple and utilitarian, they are meant to be disposable combat robots aren’t they?

All that’s left on these guys now is a few numbers on the backs and some hexes (in the post :)) with the appropriate threat markings, and then it will be onto painting up my next team. I’ve decided to go for a bit of a Scottish theme on them which will hearken back to my first proper 40k force.

  1. Some great throughput going on here, cool. Its hard to pick a favourite.

    I have my Asterian team on the painting table right now. They also feature a lot or turquoise: I seem to use it on about half of my miniatures for a few reasons.
