#58 Other games to check out

I received my Mobile Frame Zero book in the mail a few weeks ago. I have taken my time to go over it, read the rules, background and look at all the neat pictures and diagrams in the book. I'll update this post with some pics later on. The game sounds fun I just need to set aside some time to go over my Lego(c) collection and sort all the little parts into bins to ease construction. I can heartily suggest to anyone who likes Lego(c) and gaming to check it out! Link

#57 Homestretch for basic Vanguard

So close to the end of painting the basic Vanguard Samaritans from Sedition Wars:BfA. I've finished the weapons and have the bases and faces (ooo... A rhyme) left to finish. I want to variegate the skin tones on the helmetless Samartains since there are only 7, not including the characters. After bases and faces it's on to the Strain! And now for some pics!

Bottom pic: helmetless females, one w/ sabre kinesis rifle, one w/ bouncer mplg
Middle pic: females / helmets, one w/ sabre kinesis rifle, one w/ fusion lance
Top pic: male samaritans, one w/ sabre kinesis rifle, one w/ reaver
(still have not figured out this blogger app, pics are always opposite how I think they will be arranged)

#56 Painting the visors green

We're painting the visors green, the visors the visors we're painting the visors green!
I finished the visors on the Vanguard this morning and also added some details to the weapons. There are some really nice details on the bodies of the gun that I've seen others paint as glowing parts so I did the same. It gives some detail to let the eye wander and ties the visors to the weapons.

Next is painting the guns and bases black then adding some details with some metallics. There are also great details on the bases that might look good as lights or other things. Here's a snapshot to tide you over.

#55 Color choices...

I'm at the last stages of painting the non-character Vanguard from Battle for Alabaster. My trouble niw is how to paint the visors on these troops! I have a nice clean white basecoat down. My initial plan was to paint the visors a nice bright green to make them really pop and give a real tech-y look. After putting the white on though I'm leaning towards leaving them white or just making them look like a clear visor. Here is a pic of a few figures, let me know what you think, yeah?

#54 SW:BfA progress

Just wanted to post up some pics of my progress with the Vanguard. So far I've done all the shading and painted the joints on all the basic troops. Next up is visors, guns and bases then onto the special/heavy weapons. I do need to pick up some metallic paint and maybe a few other colors.

*forgot i have 3 faces to paint to.
