Well, I couldn’t resist these cheeky wee monkeys :D. I’ve always been a fan of playing the ‘funny’ teams shall we say. I’m into gaming for the enjoyment, the story and the general banter that you get from it, not for the win or the competition. I think the Zee’s are going to be a great laugh to play with and lead to some very funny situations :). I’ve only got some base colours on the minis at present and here’s how they are looking…
I decided to go for a colour scheme I had used on my old Tyranids, Hive Fleet Urb-Nri, which as you may be able to tell (from the name or the colours) is based off of a famous Scottish beverage. As such the working name for these guys is currently the Irn Brusrz 🙂

Thats an impressive start (and a great team name)!
Do you mind elaborating on how you got such a nice bright orange alongside that rich blue? I always struggle when painting orange.
Thanks mate. The orange wasn’t very complicated, just layer after layer of Trollslayer Orange, up to about 4 layers when the photo was taken. Still not happy with it though so may need to do another couple of layers 😦
Aah, I see. Hard work and patience, that explains why I have problems with it 😉
Thanks for the info.
You make me sound so patronising :-P. Think it would be a lot easier with a base paint, but here’s me using a layer instead.
Congratulations on your Dreadball win over the weekend! How was the open day?
The Open Day was good fun, lots of happy looking people carryimg their Kickstarter Deadzone boxes around. The preview DB and DZ models were very nice looking.
The regular DB tournament looked like a lot of fun, with 26 or so players. Playing in the Ultimate game with the other regional winners precluded me from playing in the regular tournament due to scheduling issues, although it meant that I had time to attend a seminar and chat with the Warlord guys re Judge Dredd and briefly speak to Jake Thornton, so it worked out well 🙂
I didnt mean to make you sound patronising, just to make me sound lazy 😀
