I started with some bases. It's been a while since I did a base. The Dystopian Wars ships are not based and neither are most of the Epic vehicles. Anyway, these figures come with many different sculpted bases, so I don't have to do much other than paint:
Now some real results. I wanted to use a scheme that I had not seen and went with a duck egg blue-grey. The result was not quite what I wanted, but not bad.
Definately, there are things I would do differently. I should have painted the undersuit first, but I wanted to see how the colours worked. The Object Light Sourcing, where the light from the blue pot lamp on the grounds illuminates the figure is a little heavily done. I don't like the wash I used to mark the shadows. H-Archive has some well-painted minis with black boots that look great. I was thinking of metallic guns and I think I'll do that in the future, very dark metal. The guns need a power bar to make them more interesting and that needs to be pained first.
But still I'm pleased with the result! More to come. Comments welcome.
