Taking the Strain
I’ve been quite the busy beaver this week and have seven finished (well almost finished) miniatures to share with you.
First up we have six Strain minis for the Sedition Wars Battle for Alabaster boardgame.
I’m really pleased with this lot because I experimented with a really quick technique involving washes and am chuffed with the results. I batch painted them over an airbrushed basecoat and they only took a few hours in total. Which is a great thing because there are a whole load to do for the boardgame.
Pictured above are four Revenants, a Stalker and a Quasimodo. The painting’s finished but I need to get some varnish to protect them for play and a matt spray to get rid of that shine – brought about by an ink glaze.
I won’t go into the technique right now but will promise to do a step-by-step soon.
Then as an added bonus I’ve got my first Eden miniature almost finished. He’s Toy Man, a gimpy slave for the Matriarchy faction.
The base needs a little more work: probably some pigments and grass tufts. Again, he’s painted pretty quickly to a sort of “fancy tabletop” standard.
You know, looking at the subjects I’ve painted this week – nano-mutated corpses and post-apocalyptic deviants – one might question my state of mind. I’m really quite well-adjusted, honest!
