I used a very bright red for the blood; it looks a bit silly up close but is effective at tabletop distance (see my previous post re: 15mm-paint-style-for-28mm)
First, some ghouls. They will inhabit my Terraclips sewer system for a playtest of my homebrew Modern Pulp rules (which is a bit of a mashup, containing elements of SoBH, Infinity and Savage Worlds). A paranormal SWAT team will investigate, lead by their squad psychic.
These are also to be part of a Modern Pulp playtest (a Weird West setting I chose primarily so I could use my favourite historical, Malifaux, Empire of the Dead and Confrontation minis alongside each other!).
Buoyed by my progress, this morning I beat the kids up(!) and knocked up some cyborg spider-thingies from Malifaux.
I liked these a lot less, for some reason - not only does the paint job look worse, they were fiddlier, too. Oh well, more antagonists for my Weird West setting are table-worthy at least.
My kids were soon awake and came to "help", but I managed one last thing - I turned a Mage Knight golem into a Mercenary heavy warjack. I'll add a warjack gun from one of my Cygnar spares later, but I'm content my $1 clix matches up pretty well with a $10 official warjack.
The Mage Knight clix (right) came with dual shields so I sawed one off with a Dremel. A bit of a rough job but OK from tabletop range (that's my mantra).
As usual, I'm not "showing off" mad painting skills, but showing what you can do with minimal skill, time and effort. Only one coat was used, and a maximum of one wash. Most times only 4-5 colours were used. Anyway, I hope this inspires some fellow average painters out there to grab their brushes out and have at it...
