My next batch of models for Dreadball Xtreme, the free agents!
After the hard times I had with the Kalyshi(I will stop going on about it eventually), I thought I’d treat myself to the free agents as they have a good amount of variety to them. I got stuck in and here’s what I came away with…
My favorite of the Free Agents, the Yndij Reaver. I wanted to give him a bit more of a veteran look so went for some whiter looking fur to help with this.
Went a wee bit different from the studio paint scheme on these. The Spinipede was a bit of a homage to my old Tyranid army and the Pusk I just wanted to make look a bit more alien.
These guys(do robots have gender?) I wanted to look like what they are, over used practise bots. I knew I wanted a touch of colour to make them stand out at least a little so threw in some blue glowy bits, the chevrons and the red helmets for the tie into the rest.
These two where the models I liked the least from the Free Agents although the Treebeast wasn’t so bad once I got cracking into him.
Finally we have the Zee Buccaneers. These guys were a doddle as they’re so small ti doesn’t take long to get ’em painted up.
These guys were good fun to paint. Whilst they still had a fair amount of mold lines, they where a lot easier to clean off but I think I may have missed a couple :(. I tried to keep a lot of the main colours used similar to the Kalyshi and Blaine as to tie them together when a team is made up. This also got me to wondering if I want to do the same with the rest of my teams, so that no matter what sponsor I use my player pool will all look good together. Something to ponder before I paint the next team…
