Unit-ed October: 2018 Community Painting Challenge. Also, Orctober/Orktober. Community Round-Up

Faust’s BloodBowl Dwarf Blockers/Linemen.

Faust of Double Down Dice completed a hefty contingent of Dwarf players from his Dwarven BloodBowl Team. Looking striking in their regal colours of Gold and Red on their clean Astrogranite bases, they’ve come up amazingly well for a set of figures that has given our friend such headaches over the months. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that the effort was worthwhile, and that Faust should get some more of the 21(!) models that he has for these guys done as soon as he can. The Death-Roller would work a treat for Mechanical November, too! Then the Star Players for December’s challenge… I understand that these Dwarves are also very fond of Orctober as well, though they call it “hunting season” for some reason?

 

Suncar’s Orc Bloodbowl Team – the Badland Rockerz

Speaking of both Orctober and Blood Bowl, Suncar of The Suncar Vault completed his Orc Bloodbowl Team – the Badland Rockerz. If only they weren’t separated by the Atlantic Ocean and a fair bit of land, they could square off against Faust’s Dwarf Boys for a traditional grudge match. Suncar’s models are mostly the classic 2nd Edition Blood Bowl models that date from my own introduction to the game, accompanied by the Bloodweiser Goblin and a Sculpted-from-scratch Rock Troll.

 

Tarmor’s Unit of Orcs – with a Goblin lackey!

Continuing the Orctober theme, Tarmor, of Dragons of Lancasm completed this dual-challenge unit of Orcs for both the month’s Unit-Ed October challenge as well as Orctober. He’s gone for a different shade of flesh to that which many GW players would be less familiar with, but has its origins in older games and literature. I think it looks pretty bloody good and although I’ll be continuing to paint my own GW orcs like GW orcs, this is another shade I’ll add to the ways I paint my Middle-Earth Orcs. Tarmor’s Orctober orcs shown above are a followup to his September batch of Orcs.

 

mcmatilla’s Ironskull’s Boyz, from Shadespire.

mcmatilla completed a unit for the month’s unit challenge, as well as a couple of bonus standalone models for Orctober. First up, we have the Ironskull’s Boyz warband, from Shadespire done in an exceptonally bright orange, yet managing to actually pull it off.

mcmatilla’s Gretchin with a shoota.

mcmatilla’s Uruk-Hai Warrior

mcmatilla additional models are a very nicely done Grot (Gretchin, aka 40k Goblin) and an Uruk-Hai warrior from Lord of the Rings – both featuring some lovely blended highlights.

 

 

Buck Surdu’s Dad’s Army in Civvies.

Buck Surdu’s Dad’s Army lads in their Home Guard kit.

Buck’s female defenders of Little Baisley by the Sea.

…and a collection of civilians from Little Baisley by the Sea.

Buck’s Power Armoured infantry from Reaper Miniatures.

Buck Surdu, of Buck’s Blog has been particularity productive, completing several units over October – first up we have the lads from Dad’s Army in both their civvies as well as their Home Guard uniforms. As well as the Legendary(!?) Home Guard unit, Buck has also finished two “units” of civilians – one of armed women and one of more generic looking British civilians. If you visit Buck’s blog linked here, you’ll see quite a few more images of these challenge-month models, as well as a few others, including a Hellhound and a Brain In A Jar…

 

The Imperfect Modeller’s Kelly’s Heroes.

A rather nice counterpoint to Buck’s post featuring Dad’s Army is this trio of models from The Imperfect Modeller featuring Kelly’s Heroes. We have Kelly himself, Big Joe and of course, Donald Sutherland’s Sgt. Oddball. It’s like we’re only missing SGT Steiner and Jude Law as Vasilly Zaitzev

 

 

Pete S/ SP’s Rhodesian African Rifles.

PeteS/ SP also had a busy month – completing three distinct units. Firstly a platoon of 20mm Rhodesian African Rifles from Under Fire Miniatures.

Pete S/ SP’s Royal Ulster Constabulary.

Pete’s next unit for the month is a 1970’s-early 80’s-era set of Royal Ulster Constabulary, this time from Elheim miniatures.

Pete’s British Expeditionary Force Infantry

And finally, Pete completed this platoon of British Expeditionary Force from 1914, by Lancer Miniatures, again in 20mm. Pete certainly added an impressive number of painted models to his various forces over October.

 

Maenoferren22 paints a couple of Mongols…

Maenoferren22’s Mongol Cavalry

Maenoferren22 of the Bogenwald blog completed the painting of a 10mm Mongol army worthy of The Golden Horde. The models might be tiny, but as someone who has tapped out while trying to paint stands of 15mm Flames of War infantry, I can only offer admiration to someone who has the drive to get through so many, many tiny mans.

Maenoferren22’s Conquistador Army for Hordes of the Things

Maenoferren22 also completed this 10mm Conquistador Army for use with the Hordes of the Things ruleset. It was certainly interesting to see the army take shape over the course of a reasonable number of posts (and even more interesting as I was working my way through them backwards!)

 

 

One of Mark Morin’s two infantry squads of Space Roos.

…aaaand the other Squad!

Mark Morin, New England’s finest, never does things by halves as we all know by now. Ask the man to paint a squad or unit of 3+ models, and he’ll bloody well create a platoon worth of models. Including officer commanders. Then paint them. Which is what he did. Mark’s boundless enthusiasm and apparently tireless work ethic created the Space Roos force that will no doubt see a ton of action in games of his comrade Buck Surdu’s Combat Patrol skirmish ruleset. Because these guys write and publish their own rules. Because of course they bloody do. Mark’s post goes through the process of not only the painting, but the creation of these unique figures. (I think for Mechanical November, Mark is probably building an actual working full-sized Mark I Tank.) There’s also something about a team winning a game of rounders in there as well. 😉 This marks Mark’s second Aussie-themed wargaming force, the first being his Ral Partha Roo-Mans.

 

Thomas’ Old One-Eye, flanked by three other Carnifices.

Speaking of not doing things by halves, Thomas of High Times on the Eastern Fringe continued working on his Tyranid force by completing four carnifex models, including the named “Old One-Eye”. That’s kind of like painting three 1:36 scale Konigstigers plus Whittmann’s Tiger. And at least as deadly! Plus they’re green – so Orctober as well! 😀

 

Ellen’s Tyranid Hormagaunts.

Ellen’s guest-star Carnifex. Just visiting the round-up post.

And Speaking of Tyranids, Ellen from Lavender Miniatures and Gaming has been working on a substantial batch of 40k’s favourite space bugs. Her first completed unit is made up of 10 Hormagaunts, leaping from their bases and somehow not topping over for at least as long as it takes to take the above photograph. her post also features a Carnifex that, while strictly speaking isn’t part of the October Challenge, is too nice looking to not add in here as well, and hell, it fits in with the Carnifex-tastic theme set by Thomas’ contribution above.

 

 

Roger’s completed Mantic Dungeon Saga collection.

Roger from Rantings from Under the Wargames Table completed quite a project this last month – all of the models from Mantic Games’ Dungeon Saga Boardgame. While the link here only goes to the final post of the painting saga, It’s well worth checking out the preceding series of posts to see Roger’s progression through painting a similar but quite disparate collection of models over a period of time.

 

Pandora’s Bitz Box’ Thousand Sons Rubricae Squad.

Pandora’s Bitz Box, of the team behind the Krakendoomcool Blog completed a unit of Thousand Sons Legion Rubricae Chaos Marines of Tzeentch in October, including their attached Sorcerer. So many thin, thin lines of blue and yellow there – but a favourite aspect of the squad for me is the shimmering effect on the Sorcerer’s Force Sword – kinda like reflections but also kind of like arcs of eldritch power going up and down the two sides of the blade.

 

Argentbadger’s Krielstone Bearer and Stone Scribes

Argentbadger of The Bovine Overlord completed a unit composed of a Krielstone Bearer and Stone Scribes from the Trollbloods faction of the Hordes wargame. There’s a definate Obelix vibe coming from that Krielstone Bearer. I think it might be because he fell into the cauldron of magic potion when he was a baby. And now, for the first time I’m thinking about it and wondering why all Gauls didn’t get dunked into the stuff as babies. Rome would never bother them again!

 

Dave Stone’s Imperial Assault Tusken Raiders

Dave Stone of The Gamer’s Cupboard completed this unit of Tusken Raiders (or Sand People) from Star Wars: Imperial Assault. I really like the different tones of sandy brown and ochre that he’s achieved in order to differentiate between the inner and outer robes. Dave has a whole lot more of the Imperial Assault stuff happening on his blog right now, so if you’re interested in the Star Wars, I’d suggest checking it out!

 

 

Wudugast hits the full squad of 10 for his truescale Knights Mortis Space Marines.

Wudugast of Convert or Die (seems an easy enough choice, really) has had a bit of a huge month in October – completing enough additional models of his Knights Mortis Chapter true-scaled Space Marines based on Primaris models. The addition of the very nicely posed Sergeant as well as the flamer marine on top of the regular troopers finishes off a rather striking unit. Will we see an officer or specialist next?

Wudugast’s Orktober contingent of 40k Orks.

Not to rest on his laurels or anything, Wudugast has also added a pretty impressive chunk of green to his 40k Ork force for the Orktober theme of the month. 5 Boyz and three Nobs makes a second and third completed unit by my count as well, while the rather menacing Deff Dread would cover the Dreadtober challenge (run elsewhere), so Wudugast has truly been all over it in October! The Orky link there leads not only to individual shots of these boyz, but also a bloody impressive full army shot of painted Boyz and their Toyz, which just makes me jealous!

Wudugast’s Goblin Archer unit

Wudugast’s Squigs with their herder team.

A big block of Wudugast’s Goblin Spears, with some netters and a few other oddballs thrown in for good measure!

Did I say Orktober? Wudugast has also hammered out enough models to complete three additional units for his fantasy Goblin army

Wudugast added in the nicest looking one of this Rat Ogre foursome in October.

And finally, Wudugast added one more Rat Ogre to create a unit of four when grouped up with his previously finished models.

 

 

My own contributions for October can be found in more detail in my Personal Round-Up Post, but for completeness’ sake, here they are, standing on top of Skulltown Hill.

 

Bloody hell. This month’s round-up has been an epic task taking quite a few hours to assemble. I’ve even managed to get it up on the second weekend of the month, which I think is actually pretty reasonable, as I try to get my personal round-up done on the first weekend of the new month, and then give people a few days or a week’s leeway to get their stuff varnished and photographed and posted.

Every time I’ve thought I was done with this post, I’ve found another couple of posts or contributions that I’d missed in my last session. There’s even one or two up there that I somehow remembered, despite them not linking to finished models in the original signup post. I’ve gone through that post a couple of times, doing my best to not miss anyone out. If I did manage to miss you out, despite my best efforts, please do post in the comments below and I’ll add you in as soon as I’m able to do so!

Unit-Ed October – Personal Round-Up &October 2018 Painting Round-Up

Another month down, and another month with a disappointing overall outcome. While knuckling down in the last week did get me over the line for my 1-model-for-each-day minimum for the month (with 32 completed in the 31-day October), I did have some larger plans that didn’t come to fruition. A unit of Orcs (because Orctober), a unit of Goblins (because Orctober), a unit of Wargs (because Orctober), a unit of Skaven (because Wudugast), two Imperial Walkers (because Dreadtober) and a Daemon Prince (again, Dreadtober) were all on the planned list, but none of those got completed (or even worked on with the exception of the Orcs).

So now we add this 32 to the 464 so far and have 496 so far. What was I hoping for in 2018? I think it was about 600. After the last couple of months, that’s looking less likely, as I’d need to hit an average of 53 each in November and December, and what with it being about to get ker-azy at work as we hurtle towards Christmas and the end of the year, and my own relentless exhaustion, I wouldn’t hold my breath on that. Still, 500 is all but guaranteed now, so that’s something, right? When I do my final 2018 round-up I’ll have to see just how many are bits of nearly-meaningless scatter terrain…

Oh, and here are my units once again. A bit weak by my usual standard with only 25 models/3 units, but there it is:

Undead Legionaires/Poxwalkers.

Imperial Officers.

Uruk-Hai Berserkers.

My plan is to get the community round-up for October done sooner rather than later, but at worst the plan is to have it up in two days at best and by next weekend at worst. So if you’ve still got to varnish or photograph (or link!) your pics, then get it done ASAP! Link them in the comments here in the announcement post if you haven’t already done so!

Realm of Chaos – Nurgle’s Children 2018 #15: WarZone 1st Edition Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires (as Poxwalkers): TG9511PB & TG9505PB (Unit-Ed October ’18) (Zom’tober?)

TG9511PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires, TG9505PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires, Poxwalkers

Yeah, another bloody mouthful of a post title. Maybe the worst yet. Still, there’s a lot of crossover with the content of this post.

Firstly, the models themselves. They’re 7 of the 8 models from the two old-school WarZone blisters, TG9505PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires and TG9511PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires. Clicking those links will take you to Prince August’s site where both are still available from original stock after all these years. Pretty good sci-fi zombies, to be quite honest. Old-school WarZone collectors often get in contact with me and ask if I have anything to sell so I like to point out when the figures on show are still available where possible. (If I ever do sell any, I’ll post them up here – I promise!)

TG9511PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires, Poxwalkers

The missing eighth of the models was actually painted a few years ago. Now, I haven’t played WarZone for many, many years at this point – but some of the models were real crackers (some were awful as well, no argument there!) These sci-fi zombies with guns were always pretty cool looking, but I never really had much of a use for them. Still, I did a bunch of Blessed Legionnaires when I gave the Nurgle Cult army a first-go-round back in 2015 or so. Need to rebase that Spawn of Demnogonis as well onto a proper 32mm base.

TG9511PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires, Poxwalkers

Obviously, this lot fits in with my own monthly challenge – that of Unit-Ed October. Because it’s a unit of models. A unit of 7 in fact – Nurgle’s (un)holy number! Coincidence, yes – but a fitting one. Paint scheme-wise, I painted 6 of them in the same Auscam as the main elements of my Imperial Guard force – the 11th Terror Australis Regiment. The 7th has his carapace armour painted in greys in a nod to his Warzone Bauhaus roots.

TG9505PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires, Poxwalkers

And finally, I found out via Rantingsfromunder’s blog that there’s a thing called Zom’tober in the minis blogging community – though it’s one of those Blgospot ones, and we know that WordPress and Blogspot are a pain in the arse when it comes to getting on with one another. Unfortunately, it seems that Zom’tober has some pretty specific rules about completion that rule me out participating  …pretty much ever.

To take part you just need to paint one Zombie or Survivor (or more!) each week, in any scale you like, posting it to your blog by that week’s Sunday (we use Sunday’s as the end of each Zomtober week). So that means posting one or more newly painted Zombie or Survivor minis each week on or before the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th this year.

Doesn’t really work for me. I finished 4 of these suckers at once 2 weekends ago, and then the final three last weekend – with the blood effects across all of them applied yesterday evening in two sittings. I mean, they’re zombies! Are there any other figures that lend themselves so well to batch painting?

TG9505PB: Warzone Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires, Poxwalkers

So while they don’t exactly fit into the Nurgle Daemons army, I’m sure that nobody reasonable would complain about a bunch of poxwalkers thrown in there as well. I’ll have to figure out where I’ve stashed the Blessed Legionnaires and that other zombie and pool the lot of them together for the next time I do an “army in progress” type shot for the Nurglites.

Oh. And after taking the above photos, I found the 8th model. While he’s fully painted, he does need a bit of touch-up to get him to the point where he’ll nicely fit in with the rest of his cohort here. I might attempt to get him done before the month ends, so I can bump my monthly total up that little bit more towards the 31 I want to have done…

Edit – Got that last one touched up, retook three of the photos tonight (following night to original post) and replaced the original pics of three with the four.

Mechanical November ’18: Monthly Hobby Challenge

So, something a little bit different for November, but hopefully something that’s still flexible enough to fit in with people’s existing projects (and half-painted/abandoned models).

The idea for this month’s theme is to paint mechanical models. Now, this might seem restricting, but the way I see it, the theme can be applied pretty broadly. Tanks and indeed, any kind of vehicles work, including Steam Tanks that Dwarfs or Renaissance humans might use. All manner of Droids and Robots, obviously.

Lots of terrain pieces work – particularly some of the new-ish stuff from Games Workshop (Sector Mechanicus) but then also a lot of other terrain works well also – Mantic’s Inductrial Battlezones for instance and of course no end of resin options from a hundred different companies.

Even smaller stuff like some of the Sci-fi terrain I’ve been doing lately can be shoehorned in there.

Not the crates here, but certainly the sci-fi automatic doors and the terminals.

Walkers of all types, obviously are appropriate. Star Wars, AT-43, DUST, Konflikt ’47, Martian walkers.. you get the idea – as well as the obvious 40k stuff.

Didn’t get your Dreadtober piece finished (or started?) No problem, finish it in November and post it up for this month’s challenge!

Some armies are obviously better served than others here. Necrons being a standout – but I’m happy to consider power armour of whatever kind to be mechanical.

Some things that don’t immediately come to mind as mechanical are absolutely that. Most fantasy war machines fit the bill and even moreso for historical ones – after all, what is a trebuchet, if not a mechanical device?

So have a look at your painting desk, your shelf of shame or even the grey hordes and see what you wanted to get done anyway that you could fit in here.

This challenge starts on the 1st of November and as always, runs until the end of the month. if you finish the model at 11:58pm on the final evening, that’s fine – just get it varnished and photographed in a few days and I’ll include it in the community round-up. I always give a few days grace period.

There’s also no special criteria as to who can or cannot participate. If you’d like to participate, then you can. Simples. Just link your post/models back to this post or leave a comment below with a link so I can find your stuff during the round-up time.

That’s pretty much it. If you might be interested, you’ve got a few days for thinking about it before the challenge starts – though if you’re keen there’s also no reason you can’t be working on your models. Because it’s only about completing models in November! 😉

Neglected Model September ’18 Painting Challenge – Community Round-Up

The Imperfect Modeller’s Andrea Miniatures Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne)

The Imperfect Modeller has gotten into the Neglected Model act in September by completing this model that had been neglected for a decade or more. Depicting John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn in the 1969 original of True Grit. As always, the entire model is amazing, but that Horse is a real thing of beauty.

 

mcmattila’s completed Tactical Marines

…and his completed squad!

First time participant, mcmattila has submitted the above Combat Squad of Tactical Space Marines, which combined with the first batch to form a full-strength squad. Some very nice painting here! As mcmattila doesn’t have a blog at this time, I’m putting his pics up here – hopefully he’ll continue to participate in these challenges!

 

Argentbadger’s Trollblood Fennblade Officer and Drummer

Argent Badger of The Bovine Overlord has continued with the Warmahordes theme in September’s Challenge, painting a command pair of Fennblade Officer and Drummer. His blog post features a group shot of them alongside their unit, looking very cool – so go check it out!

 

Just Needs Varnish completed another nice batch of figures in September. This time a mixture of Infantry, Armour and Civilian vehicles which all have a location and time in common – specifically the early Pacific War campaign in the Philippines.

 

Wudugast’s Skaven Plague Furnace.

Wudugast from Convert or Die completed a pretty impressive centrepiece model in September – a Skaven Plague Furnace. I’m aware of how redundant it is to mention when an enormous amount of work goes into a model like this one, but if you check out his post you really can see it in detail.

 

Red Boar Wiiingers’ Baruk-Khazâd Bastards Dwarf Blood Bowl team.

Red Boar Wiiingers from Presenting The Red Boar Wiingers! completed this Dwarf Blood Bowl team – The Baruk-Khazâd Bastards. They don’t look like a group of lads you’d want to mess with – on or off the pitch!

 

Dave Kay’s original Warhammer Quest Bats.

Dave’s Skeleton Jester.

Dave Kay, from Scent of a Gamer completed these old-school Warhammer Quest Giant Bats. Now they definitely look the part! Dave’s second submission was this Skeleton Jester which he picked up for Warhammer Quest, though I think it also has a very Mordheim feel to it as well.

 

Bifur’s Deathshroud Terminators.

Bifur of Sigmund Freud is Judging You completed this trio of Deathshroud Terminators of the Deathguard Legion. I know the pic is tiny – maybe we’ll see a larger version at some point in the future?

 

Backtothehammer’s Wood Elf Waywatchers…

…and his Ungrim Ironfist.

Backtothehammer was so enthusiastic about September’s challenge that he finished and posted these models on the 21st of August! A unit of Wood Elf Waywatchers as well as The Slayer King – Ungrim Ironfist!

 

 

Alexis “Westrider” West of Cascadian Grimdark had a very productive September – finishing quite a variety of Neglected models in the month of September. The Shadespire warband, Spiteclaw’s Swarm; a selection of Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower Heroes/Antiheroes; several Tzeentchian Daemons from The Warp, and finally – the containment chamber from the 40k Battlefield Objectives set.

 

Pandora’s Bitz Box’ trio of Tyranid Hive Guard

Pandora’s Bitz Box from the Krakendoomcool blog got his neglected unit done in contrast to Backtothehammer’s August submission – PBB got this unit of Tyranid Hive Guard completed this month, in October! Still, motivation is the key and given how late this update is I’m not going to be an arse about anything. On reflection, they could have easily been a submission for this month’s challenge of Unit-ed October.

 

 

Thomas’ Neglected Servitor.

Not sure how I missed regular Challenge Challenger Thomas from High Times on the Eastern Fringe‘s submission for September, but apparently I did. I usually see all of Thomas’ posts, but apparently I missed this one completely. I guess September wasn’t the greatest month on my end, so this sort of thing can happen. Anyway, Thomas completed this nicely-worn and weathered Servitor over September. The plan is to eventually mount him on a larger piece or diorama, which explains the plain base that he has at this time.

 

Joe’s Dark Eldar/Drukharii Voidraven Bomber.

Joe, of Joesavestheday painted a rather lovely Dark Eldar/Drukharii Voidraven Bomber. It turns out that Joe actually wrote a series of three posts on his Neglected Model entry progress, though I didn’t know they were a thing until just now. I’m genuinely not sure how I missed them, since Joe linked to the blog itself and more importantly, also to the post. Maybe WordPress won’t recognise a trackback to Blogger’s posts? I’m guessing that for non-Wordpress bloggers a direct comment might be needed.

 

Then there’s my own stuff, highlighted both in my last post, and in detail across last month’s posts on this blog.

Once again, I have to offer a hefty congratulations to all of the people who managed to get something done. The last months have been a real challenge for me to keep motivated myself, and this post is now half a month behind, but the doldrums that often hit me this time of year have indeed hit, and hard this year. I’ve got one unit done, and a probable second close to done with luck. With one more weekend left of the month, I don’t think I’ll be getting any Dreadtober stuff done, but there’s always a chance, I guess.

and finally…

Did you paint a neglected model during September? Did I forget to include you? Did we discuss neglected models in the comments of one of the posts or someone else’s blog comments and now you’re not included here? Just let me know in the comments below.

Not to be a nagging bastard, but that’s why I ask you to link back to me. I don’t need the money or the fame of a trackback, but it makes it a million times easier for me to round up the community posts and make all of the links. 😉

Neglected Model September ’18: Monthly Hobby Challenge – Personal Round-Up & September 2018 Painting Round-Up

The post title says it’s a two-few, but it’s technically a three-fer post. First up we’ve finally got the collection of Neglected Models that I managed to get done over the course of September. Not a bad collection of neglected figures in September, especially as they’re all individuals.

I also managed to finish this trio of Mantic Terrain Crate scenery just before the end of September. Usually I like to give things their own posts, and if I had a bit more terrain to show, then I’d put them together, but I’m not putting together a post for three sets of PVC mining tools on a rack.

Finally, we’ve got the September round-up post, with both the Monthly Challenge figures as well as everything else finished, including those Tool Racks. Regular readers will know that I just haven’t been feeling it lately, and so it took until last weekend before I took my own monthly round-up photos – but then there was naturally an issue with a model that was on a different shelf, so it took me until today to go out there and retake that photo.

With those last-minute took racks, I just squeaked in 30 models for September, continuing my personal 1-per-day-of-each-month “challenge”.

As for the running total, this 30 added to the 434 I had completed by the end of August takes me to 464 to date this year. October has been more challenging, but I’m just squeaking by so far due to more simple terrain bits and some unit painting. Those will be on show in a little while, though. Next up – The (belated) September Community Round-up.

WarZone 1st Edition Warzone Cartel Special Agent: TG9510PB (Neglected Model September ’18)

WarZone 1st Edition Warzone Cartel Special Agent: TG9510PB, Heartbreaker Hobbies

Another WarZone 1st Edition model today – one of the four from the WarZone Cartel Special Agents pack. He is, of course a Neglected Model and has been touched up and had some aspects repainted to fit in with current-quality models. I’d have posted this a few days ago, but I’m still burnt out, so much so that I actually forgot that I hadn’t posted this model (and the one that’s the subject of tomorrow’s post, also.)

WarZone 1st Edition Warzone Cartel Special Agent: TG9510PB, Heartbreaker Hobbies

Once again, the model features nWo logo, the rationale behind this was that my force back in the day was nWo-branded Cybertronic, so it only made sense for the Cartel allies that I’d theoretically use to also feature the same iconography, for easy IFF on the tabletop. Updates to this model as part of Neglected September included patching up the chips that went to the bare metal, completely rebasing it, cleaning up and re-highlighting some parts of the jacket, and updating his hair from yellow-as-blonde, to a more realistic sandy colour (though it still looks a bit more yellowish in these pics than in hand).
