Paint Table Saturday 251 - Actual finished figures!

Hi All,

It seems like ages since I've had finished figures to post on a Saturday. I actually finished these guys last night.


The first two Gorillas from the space apes set from Eureka. For all of these photos I used my cell phone on "pro" camera settings and then manually fine tuned them a little in Snapseed, no presets. I meant to look at ape names from the Planet of the Apes franchise of movies (the 70's ones) but haven't had time.


The Empirical Absolution Squad + 1. I kept with the color scheme laid out on my Psycho Sam (Dahn Alt Rump) and I think I achieved a pretty good match. The Psi Judge, I believe a Mongoose figure, was something I won in a blog contest years ago. I decided not to resculpt her dodgy right hand. I'm not totally sure if I like what my matte varnish has done to all the gold metallics.

(Apparently if I type Psy Judge I get articles about the guy who sang Gangnam Style. It appears the figure is a Mongoose Psi Judge Anderson, someone wrote an article here.)


Commandant Xerof Uks leads Team Terra: Galactic Police in rooting out Xeno scum.


Lastly I put down some base colors on the chimpanzees from the space apes. I suppose one could make the case that the gent on the left is also a gorilla, but he seems smaller than the other two. I did not paint their hair yet. I was going to go with darker browns.

Any way, thanks for looking and commenting.

Happy painting.

    1. Hi Ryder, probably Rogue Trader. I might just write up the Empirical etc squad for Kill Team or even try to play them as Arbites in Necro. I just try to find excuses to play why weird collection.

    1. Hi Mario, thanks for commenting. No Worries, the range may not be for everyone, and honestly they don't cleanly fit into any games I play. One thought was to play them as Jokaero in Rogue Trader.
