They are the first of the Kickstarter minis I’ve painted, and they are just fantastic. A pleasure to paint and they look like they could take on the world, or at least some German heavy infantry.
I put some more effort into these, as I think they deserved it.
Armour – Vallejo 894 Camo Olive Green with an Army Painter Dark Tone wash. Heavily drybrushed with 968 Flat Green and drybrushed 863 Gunmetal Grey. Rust painted with 68 Smokey Ink.
Tubes – 306 Dark Rubber
Weapons and springs – 863 Gunmetal Grey with two washes of Dark Tone
Cloth – 924 Russian Uniform WWII with a Strong Tone wash
Leather straps – 876 Brown Sand also washed with Strong Tone.
|Missing a piece on the tank behind the body. That and a couple of missing cards from the kickstarter will hopefully arrive in the post shortly.|
|They are big.|
I played my first game of Brimstone with one of my sons this weekend. We played the introductory scenario, using a Marshal and Saloon Girl, misunderstood a lot of the rules, made mistakes and got our behinds whipped, but we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
|I used some of my Black Scorpion minis as substitutes|
We only used the minis I have already painted and I feel that the game will be much more fun the more different minis you have, so at the moment I’m assembling all monsters from the other box and waiting eagerly for the rest of the stuff from the Kickstarter.
Great fun! More games will be played shortly.
