#69 Sedition Wars: the progress continues

After a little internal debate I decided to use a darker red a give all the level 1 & 2 Strain a little wash to bring out some details and make them less monochrome. I also thought it would be better to give them a less necrotic look to give a better feel for the figures being in the midst of transformation. I also gave the bigger beasties their flesh tone and metallic sections. The next step is finishing the bases on all fully painted figures: the low level Strain and Vanguard troopers. After that I move on to finishing the characters and big beasts.
The pics below show some of the added washes to the Strain, the bases and the flesh and metal on the big beasties.

#68 Sedition Wars: group shots

I just finished up putting the glowing bits on the lower Strain. Now all I need is to touch them up with some green to give a putrid flesh look. I also need touch up the bases for all the minis I have done so far and finish two Vanguard characters. I'm going to start painting the bigger minis later today and order some paints so I can finish all of them in one pass (hopefully). The two photos below show all that I have done so far. The Quasimodos laying down show some of the glowing blue bits I've added to the Strain. Each type of figure has a variety of small details painted this way. No real change to any Vanguard, I'm very pleased with how they turned out.

#67 Sedition wars: Strain with more flesh!

Two posts in one 24 hour period? What's gotten into me? Nothing too crazy I hope as I've finished up the Strain as much as I can with the paints I have though any suggestion on what color the glowing bits should be is appreciated. I done all the flesh on the lower Strain models and only have the Scythe Witches, Brimstones, Grendlr and Cthonian left (and one Hurley, doh!). I'll be using the same colors on those as well just keeping things looking a little cleaner hopefully. I want to use some cool green washes on the Revenants, Stalkers and Quasimodos to get a nice putrid flesh look. After that the glowing bits are all that are needed for me call the lower Strain done.

#66 Sedition Wars Strain progress: flesh!

Wow. I haven't painted this much in a long time. Not since my 40k days. It was a little tough at first though I think my biggest problem is that I need some new brushes to control the paint better and more paints for a wider  color palette. Anyways, I got all the metal bits painted on the Strain and got some fleshed out. My next step is finish the flesh and order some more colors. So here are a couple of Strain shots!

#65 Sedition Wars progress

I've managed to keep up my momentum and painted some strain minis, well their pants at least. Starting with the upper left & going clockwise there is: green, red, orange, blue, grey, yellow. I divided them up which I think will give a good variety on the table. Also some character updates, just some detailing on Kara and Barker. Skin tones once I get the paints for them.

#64 Sedition Wars now with some character

Well I finally got around to painting miniatures again! It felt great to put paint to plastic again (I'm not a big fan of metal mini's, too much trouble to cut and clean). This time around I worked on the faces of some of the rank-and-file Vanguard and finished two if the characters to boot! I'm quite pleased with the amount of work I did in the few hours I put in last night. I'm not the greatest painter in the world and am not going to try to be, I just want to make them look neat on the table. So without further ado or tangents here they are, enjoy!
