Painting Hero Quest Mini's

5 Test Mini's
My plan which I have had in my head now for over 5 years is to paint the base game from Hero Quest.  I have been playing around with Army Painters Quick shades.  I'll be just doing a very basic base coated mini's and then hitting them with the Strong Tone Quick Shade. These are the first five test models that I did.  So far so good.

Assault Marines The first 5

Well I have finished the first 5 of my 10/12 Assault Marines for my Mantis Warriors army.  This set of 5 has the Sgt with a Power Fist, and 1 of the other Marines with a Plasma Pistol. I am holding off on basing them until once I have most of the army completed, or at least the rest of the squad.

The Assault Sgt
 This is the first Squad that has the custom shoulder pads that I made, I think they turned out alright.

All 5 together

Also the army painter army green paint was a spot on match to the primer, looks awesome and works great.

Like always questions and comments are always welcome.

Saturday Snapshot

The five Assault Marines have been finished up, and I have only the right shoulder pads left to finish up on the Assault Terminators.  I'll be making a post later this week with pictures of the Assault Marines.  I have been starting to gather the bits together to build another five or six Assault Marines.

Continuing with my Space Marines
I am also painting another 3 Defiance Games Marines, which once completed will give me a total of 9 built and painted, In the second photo you can see in the lower left corner the Defiance Games Marines, and in the lover right some ships for TI3.

One step back to see everything that I have going on

Saturday Snapshot

This Saturday I am looking at a near completed Assault Terminator Squad!  I hope to get the decals on them and play a game or two with them.  I also would like to get those damn Tactical Marines Knocked out as well.   I really like using the Army Painter War Paints.  I have now started to save my pennies for the full paint range.

Getting closer to having another unit of Mantis Warriors!

Saturday Snapshot, this weekend I am seeing GREEN!  I have primed and am hoping to get the assault squad finished and the assault terminators finished!

Future Mantis Warriors on Deck!

I have been using Army Painter as my primer / base coat, I have not been able to find a color that matches.  Have no fear my saving grace is here just arriving in the mail is the Army Painter Army Green paint that is 100% match of the primer color!  I can't wait to start using it, and get my models finished up and touched up so that they all match.

Dark Angles Combat Squad

Just about finished with the next two Space Marines, I have finished one of them and the Sgt needs to have a the squad making on the shoulder pad and paint the belt, finally a few little touch ups.

The one finished Space Marine

The Chapter symbol was hand painted, well sort of the sword was part of the shoulder pad.  So all I had to add was the wings.  I think that they came out alright.  I am hoping that I will be able to put the finished combat squad displayed at the local shop in their display case that they have.




The Sgt so far

The 3 together right now

 So here they are, I'm looking forward to getting them knocked out and hopefully on display.

Like always comments and questions are welcome.

Defiance Games Part 2

So it has been another week and I have painted another 3 of the defiance games UAMC models.  This next set has a medic in the group, so as I am making up special rules I'll have to do something with a medic.  I was thinking something like "feel no pain" I'll figure it out when the time comes.

Next 3 models painted

I went with the same green color for the body armor and helmets, however I did use a different color for the fatigues. Using the green should give them a since of cohesion with the other 3.

I put a small dot in the left shoulder of each model

 The small green dot on the shoulder gives each the idea that they are part of a specific unit or company.  As for painting the models, I like painting them up I can get 3 knocked out in one sitting and still get some progress on my 40K stuff.
