Yippee Ki Yay mother.....s New toys!
Well I'm here with more pictures of newness and painted models.
I finally received my last units for my Nomad force from Element games (and220 is my code, I'll happily return the favour)
Firstly here's what I bought:
1 x Gecko Squad,
1 x Iguana Squad,
1 x Hellcat squad,
5 x 28mm scenic bases
2 x 40mm scenic bases
1 x 60mm scenic base
Knight models, The Flash.
First up to be built were the Gecko squad have been looking forward to these guys, ever since I saw them released:
The unboxing, the great thing about Infinity boxes they come in a separate padded box:
These guys were absolute beasts to build, great fun. They fitted well together with very little gaps, some companies out there need to take a notice of these models, quality miniatures, at a reasonable price made from metal not some fancy useless resin.
The next one out of the Box was the Iguana TAG plus pilot, again something I was looking forward to build:
Again just like the Geckos, this was a beast to build and I loved it. Again fitted together lovely with very few gaps that needs filling.
Lastly was the Hellcats, which came in a blister:
In this pack there were 2 hellcats, 1 Hacker and 1 armed with a HMG:
These guy were great to build but not as fun as the Geckos and Iguana.
And of course the Templates:
Nice simple templates, not much to really report other than I love the fact you can choose the colour you want.
Oh I won't leave out the standard group shot too:
And of course where would this blog be without something from Knight models.
And shock horror it ain't a Marvel character or a DC character being turned into a Marvel character but an actual DC character the Flash:
With the Flash I am going to try something new, and for the second time ever, I am going to try my hand at sculpting.
I am going to try and sculpt the notion of speed:
I started off creating a funnel effect with plasticard:
I at this point realise I very little greenstuff and it's Saturday night, and I live in the middle of nowhere and the hobby shop will be closed on Sunday. BUGGER!
So off to Tesco I go on Sunday and while shopping I pick up some Plumbers putty, in the hope that will work...
Bollocks did it work started of great and cure with in seconds, so I bite the build dug up some old liquid greenstuff I have and it had thickened up nicely enough to use use just like normal greenstuff.
So with my tools and a little water I am now building up the effect:
After a few more layers not sure if I should do more or paint it as water or dust:
So I really could do with some help, more layers and water or dust?
I promised some painted stuff:
Well here is Alice and Bo the dog from the Apocalyptic future completed:
I am waiting on the Angel Giraldez painting guide before I start the Infinity minis so Flash next then probably Gandalf
