Samurai Out, Amazon's in. The revolving paint shop

Finished this samurai tonight... I'm very happy with him. the more washed out colors are a bit of a departure for me. It's nice to not do everything in high saturation. Do you think he needs eyebrows?

The last two Amazons arrived in the mail today, so it's back to that project. I finished the shields I had left to do tonight:

Hopefully I can finish the last two ladies by next week, before my next project arrives.

One on every corner

I have too many ideas for random games. Especially those that would require a sizable undertaking to bring to fruition. The latest is a near-future gang fight type game in the Shadowrun / Shockforce idiom. Random underground / scavenger / freelance gangs vs Corporate Defense squads in Seattle. The corporate troops? Starbucks. Their green would make great troop uniform colors. Can you imagine their mermaid logo done up on unit banners, and on the side of vehicles like this!? I can, and in my imagination it looks awesome. Modelling a downtown alternate-future version of Seattle would be really fun too. *sigh*

The Assassin's Creed

finished this guy. . . final pics hopefully in a day or two:

This guy is coming along nicely too

Off to a puppet show tomorrow night, so probably no updates for a bit.

warriors from the east

I'll be able to finish this fella as soon as the sand dries on the base.

In the mean time, another one I've had started for a long time. Finally got past the flesh tones tonight:

Night of the assassin

I've had this guy on my desk, partially painted for months. I started and restarted him at least twice I think. I wasn't happy with any of the variations I'd tried. Today I decided it didn't matter that much . .. I love the figure, and so I'll be happy to have him in my collection no matter.

So now I'm finishing him up, quicker than I would have originally intended. . .but at least he'll be done. :)

FUUK Tarts Finished

The FUUK-Tarts gang is also done, yay!

Some closer pictures of the foot soldiers, the bikers, and a closer look at the gang leader. A very fun project. If you're at Salute 2008, you can check them out in person.

Gunstreet Girls Finished

Finally got the finished figures photographed under better lighting:

Bigger pics here and here. They are also available on ebay if anyone is interested in giving a couple of them a home. 1, 2, 3, & 4 .

Turkey Tarts

finished off the 2nd biker in between making casserole and dressing today:

And I got started on the last gang member:

Now it's time to go eat turkey. :)

More FUUK-Tarts

Made good progress on the other biker tonight:

. . . maneaters on motor bikes

3/5 of the gang is done. (aside from the banner on this one)


A little progress on the 2008 FK-1

we are the hell cats, nobody likes.

This project is another bunch of girls, to be sent off to the UK for the Frothers gang-fight demo at Salute '08. I was warned off of Westwind, and sadly it was warranted- the figures aren't that great. They are OK gaming figures, but really lacking where it counts in the details, hands, and faces. :( But, they fit the idiom I wanted, and they'll do for demo game.

I'm doing them very quickly, but I hope someone will enjoy driving them around the board anyway. :)

. . .and the leotard makes 8.

It's finishing touches time on the last of the Gun Street Girls . . .

And a sneakpeak at what the whole batch will look like when done:
There is enough variety in the figures from this pack that I was thinking of maybe putting them up for sale in pairs, rather than all 8 together. I don't know if someone would want the whole gang or not. We shall see I guess. . .

The Girls of November

Been another sporadic week, but I finally settled down and finished this lot this evening. That leaves me with only Ms Catsuit shown in the previous picture left to do. I guess I need to quit stalling on what color to do her togs now, and come up with something.

I think the guns might be a touch over highlighted. I like the effect over all, but I think a bit more subdued would be nice. I like the pair of pistols alright, but I think the shotgun is a bit light. <---edit---> after looking at it in another picture in slightly different light, I don't think the shotgun is as badly bright as it appears in the shot above.

Lead slinging ladies

It has been a bit sporadic this week. I quit smoking the other day, and all though it has gone much better than I thought it might, it did throw off my painting concentration a bit for the first couple days. Anyway, catching back up with the rest of the gun-street-girls:

I'm still not sure what color do Ms. Bodysuit there. . . I've got another project that is going to be a lot of black leather, so I'd prefer to do something else here... Black or red are probably the standards when it comes to spy girls in skintight outfits. . . I dunno... I'd like to do something different, but nothing is jumping out in my mind yet. I really like the shades I got on the one far left though. She coo'.

November 3, 2007

. . . just a bunch of /girls/

I really like the way these came out. The rest of the pack are a little more tightpants and boots and stuff.. . so I don't know if the tough style I tried to get on these will work on them . . . we'll see.

whatdya think of these:

Gub Street Girls

I originally got these to do as a street gang for a demo-game to be run at Salute next year, however I came up with a different idea that I liked better for that project, so now I have a bunch of Mr. Copplestone's gun toting ladies, in both street and more corporate attire. Not something I would normally paint for my own collection, but they are pretty nice, clean, simple pieces.
Nothing too absurd aside from the set-piece improbable bosoms.
