Finally got round to finishing this bundle of metal emotion hating joy:
My, these pictures are awfully yellow. The cybermen are Micro Universe conversions:
Mmm. Bendy. As usual, the paintjobs were a lot more labour-intensive than you'd guess from the pictures - as well as experimenting with 'Necron Compound' (the metallic drybrush paint), there was lots of carefully placing washes to try and differentiate between different silver bits (so, the inner lining is a different shade of silver to the chest plate, for example).
Here we have the plasma gun wielder conversion from earlier, as well as a pair of Cyber-Leaders and a Cyber controller. Yes, canonically there would probably only be one Cyber-leader at a time, but I couldn't find out for sure so did two just to be safe (and this way, I have two squads with a leader each). Foolishly, I converted too many things though - I've only got two more MU cybermen stashed away, and I need three for planned conversions (Lumic on throne, Pandorica wrecked cyberman, and a cybershade using a Ramshackle Games model as the basis) although I guess for one of those I only really need the head...
Finally, these badboy not-cybermats are from Crooked Dice, which are absolutely lovely but dinky! One of them tried to escape under the coffee table while I was finishing off their bases, and took a little while to find again...
Finishing these metal meanies brings the total to:
56 vs 79 = -23
Lord knows what I'll paint next - I'm in a bit of a Star Wars mood (there's a stormtrooper stood on my laptop as I paint this), but then again I got a gratis copy of Mega City Undercover vol 2 today, which has rekindled my desire to convert and paint Wally Squad Judge Dirty Frank in 28mm, as he is the single greatest thing in any form of literature. Ever.
Very nice, and you can't get an easier paintjob!ReplyDelete
