Paint Table Saturday 253 - Space Apes

Hi All,

Although the progress has been minimal, there has been some.

I may have some finger grease on the lens. I think I also need to try auto focus, my eyes don't work well enough for manual focus.

I got the uniforms and flesh base color done on almost all of them. I missed an ear or two (not all of them have ears showing) and their fingers and toes can be tricky to find when they're primed black.

No added work on the Umber Hulks.

You may also see some Uscarl squats on the bench. I needed to make room in my washtub for the Umber Hulks, so they are not necessarily next.

Our plan is to write up 500 point forces for the sequel to the Wizard Battle, but we'll see what points value makes sense once we run the numbers. Of course we could just throw stuff down on the table, but I want my son to get the full experience of Oldhammer. Back then I made way more lists than I ever played games. I think it also gets you looking through the books more to find the special rules and points values for things.

Happy painting.

  4. Good to see you have your own mojo running strong!

    Hope the WFB game works out. Never did pick up the Armies book and now I'm kicking myself for my lack of forsight. LOL
    I'll just stick to the Chaos books instead.

    1. Thanks Dai, yeah. It's easy to look back and wonder why we didn't buy all kinds of things back in the day. I know for me I was firmly rooted in fantasy and didn't want to dilute my gaming with Sci-Fi. As such it led to not much gaming as I couldn't rope my friends into the hobby.
