|Nightmares In Silver WIPS - The Cybermen have all been based and primed|
This month's randomly themed attempt to try and reduce my 'mountainous' collection of metal, plastic and resin miniatures has been well and truly side-tracked by some of "Warlord Games" recent releases for their "Doctor Who: Exterminate!" rule-set. In particular, the company's awesome looking "Nightmares In Silver" Cybermen Collector's Set, which contains "ten exquisitely sculpted pewter Cyberman figures - each representing the major changes in appearance as they faced the many incarnations of the Doctor through the years."
Having already based and primed these metal models with "Citadel" Ironbreaker, I have also assembled the final three "highly detailed" plastic Time War Cybermen I have left over from my "Doctor Who: Exterminate!" boxed game, and added their number to my mini-project's aspirational target tally. Indeed, it would actually be quite nice to add some additional "easy-fit" miniatures from the "Missy And The Cybermen" Expansion Set to my swelling Cyber Legion if I can find the time...
|Torquemada WIPs - The Grand Master has had all his armour's tiny details washed and highlighted|
Stepping into the world of "2000 A.D." comic book characters I have also made some great progress on my "Wargames Foundry" sculpt of Tomás de Torquemada. This "Nemesis The Warlock" villain has now had all his armour's numerous hydraulic attachments washed, and in some cases, highlighted, so resultantly just needs some additional red highlights before being finished.
Lastly, one of the highlights of this past weekend was meeting up once again with Dave Stone of "Wargames Terrain Workshop" fame at the "Bovington Wargamers Show". Needless to say our conversation became increasingly expensive as Dave plied me with his extensive wares and showed off some of his latest resin creations, such as the Wasteland Overlord.
|Soda Machine WIPs - The vending dispensers have do far been primed, washed, dry-brushed and 'rusted'|
Wonderfully colourful, with lots of brightly lit buttons and garish advertising when painted normally, I've actually decided to paint both vending dispensers as long-forgotten and heavily-rusted appliances from a bygone era. And hope to therefore use one piece for my "Metamorphosis Alpha" campaign (which will require the rusty wreckage to be flocked with snow) and the other for my grass-based "Gamma World" games...
