I’ve been making some in roads into the huge lead pile that arrived as part of the 7TV Apocalypse Kickstarter. In true ‘hobby butterfly’ style I’ve just been picking stuff up to paint that I fancy the look of, rather than having any particular plan.
It goes without saying that the figures are as always with Crooked Dice lovely sculpts, with next to no clean up required. For the majority of these I’ve chosen a grey or white undercoat as a base.
In addition to the figures I’ve also been adding in some vehicles to the mix. I got an extra Interceptor in my pledge and have gone for a basic, but what I think is quite effective black colour scheme for this. It was also my first time using the Citadel technical/dry paint rust effect (I forget it’s actual name). Although this looks VERY orange in the pot once dry brushed on it gives a really subtle effect that could pass for both rust and dust.
Finally I’ve completed the conversion of the 1/43rd Teamsterz toy car I have been working on. Post apocalypse Penny has finally got her Compact Pussycat – although I feel to be properly PA we should refer to this as the Kompakt Puzzycat!
Next on the apocalypse painting production line – Science Division Hazmat troopers.
But I might be about to get distracted by dinosaurs!
