Still haven’t done a huge amount of painting (some base edges for my finished most recent 6mm – images to come once I dig the lightbox out) but I have had some ideas.
Firstly, a sci-fi village, ostensibly for my 15mm Crusties (though I have got an order from Black Hat coming in of their Imperial Martians, so the village might get some new squatters.
Here’s the first (almost) finished hut. Not massive, but a modest take on an alien mud-hut. I played a bit of Starwars Battlefront recently, and I liked seeing Ewoks and Jawas running into their house during the battle, so this scenery will also work for a small village caught in the crossfire of a larger battle.
I’ve made a few more shaped from DAS clay which are drying, and I’ll finish texturing this one this week. The 3 at the front left will be conjoined much like the above.
Next, 6mm Moongrunt… maybe.
These are just a little proof of concept – 90 (well, I’ve done 45 but you get the drift) backpacks sculpted onto these wee blokes from Brigade:
Hopefully it’ll be enough to make them look like convincing vaccsuits. I’m not detailing them, just adding a shape – they look a but more uniform in real life than in the above image (they’re only 6mm afterall!) If the idea sticks I might use it as an excuse to also paint up a moonscape using Kallistra’s hexon tiles and some of the 6mm research buildings from Brigade. We’ll see.
