From the depths of the lead pile I've resurrected 6 Bob Olley Retained Knights, 3 Bob Olley Space Goblins, a Space Crusade Necron, an ancient space Hulk genestealer, a battletech Centurian and some Kryomek Aliens that still need some TLC.
Here's a couple of close ups (click to enlarge)
Here's a couple of close ups of the bases:
I usually paint the bases of my mini's last but as painting these was going to be messy I thought I'd finish them up first so I don't mess up the mini's feet.
The edges need cleaning up but I'll sort this out as a final step.
For the bases I undecorated everything black, dry-brushed Bolt Gun Metal, then a lighter layer of Mithril Silver, then a little GW bronze, (not sure which one) and a small amount of blazing orange. Once all this was dry I watered down a little blue that looked suitably verdigris like and hit a few areas to add some variety. Lastly before the slime stage I gave the base a light dusting of Dark Yellow Vallejo Pigment. Once this was all dry it looked a little too boring so I whacked on a little watery Vallejo Fluorescent yellow around the edges and in the deep recesses to give it a little colour and contrast.
Here's a couple of close ups so you can get a better view of the bases:
Most of these minis are still in production so if you want to get your hands on them check out the links below.
