The next batch of my Deadzone Rebs is complete and here they are, as well as some better pictures of the previous batch…
Had a question over on the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DeathwatchStudios) about what I used for the bases, so I thought I’d go into that a little more here. Prior to undercoating the miniatures the bases were given a coat of GWs Astrogranite, which is one of the textured paints they offer. I went for this over traditional basing mainly because I didn’t want too much of a grain on the base. As they are supposed to be fighting within an urban environment I wanted much of the base to be fairly flat, with just a little debris. I’m pleased with how it’s come out, but what do you think?
My first batch of Deadzone minis are complete and I find myself very excited about the rest 😀
For just basic troops (not counting the commander of course) there is a superb amount of detail and character to these models, and they where thoroughly enjoyable to paint :). They’ve also given me a great base for the colours I’ll be using across the rest of the force to tie everything together. Now onto the next set of models, the Survey Drones!
The weekend has arrived so its onto painting some of my own stuff, and today I’ve made a wee bit of progress on the Centurions:
I’ve worked up the armour with some highlights to the desired colour as well as adding the glowy blue bits I want on them. The only other part I know what I’m doing with is the number panel. This will be a blue version of the digital display seen on the Gamma Slammers. I still think I need something else on these guys to really make ’em pop, and other than doing more glowy blue bits, I’m at a loss as to what. Any ideas from you readers out there would be greatly appreciated 😀
I also did a wee bit more to the logo and am happy to say this should be the final design. Let me know what you think?
