Breachstorm Proxies: Black Diamond and IMEF Troopers

Breachstorm (http://www.breachstorm.com/) is a new skirmish game a friend of my is making. I had a chance to play a short demo game, and I plan on playing a few more times before it hits Kickstarter, when I get a free Saturday. One of the factions (Homeworld Confederacy) is a somewhat generic space marine faction, so I decided to paint up a bunch of my dudes that were just sitting around. When the Kickstarter comes, I am most interested in the race of Lion dudes.

The original plan was to rely primarily on the airbrush, but I ended up throwing a wash and dry brushing medium grays, then edge highlighting in white gray. Still, didn’t take too much time.

Diamond Corps (Relic Knight, Black Diamond faction)
material: injection molded PVC plastic
I will use these guys as Homeworld Confederacy Riflemen and Fire Team Leader

Diamond Corps Medic (Relic Knight, Black Diamond faction)
material: spin-cast resin
The camera did not like the all-blue shot of just the shield and dramatically shifted the color. I would like to get a DSLR one day, but I don’t take $500+ worth of photos.
she doesn’t have a role in Breachstorm, but I wanted to paint up this model at the same time as the other Diamond Corps models

CSM Alex-117 (Relic Knight, Black Diamond faction)
material: spin-cast resin
He will play the role of Capt. Johan Lukas

IMEF: Reggie Van Zandt (Reaper Miniatures, Bones Chronoscope)
material: injection molded PVC plastic (Bones)
Reggie will be used as a Support Gunner for a Fire Team

Questing Knight Princess Malya and Mr. Tomm

The first of the new resin minis from Soda Pop Miniatures that I got my hands on, Princess Malya is a beautiful sculpt and fun to paint.  I agonized over the last little bit, and between never getting to play Relic Knights and this model’s rules being garbage, she slept on the shelf of shame, waiting for her Prince Charming to show up.  I finally finished her off last month, so she can join Mr. Tomm, who’s been done for a year now.

In case the inspiration isn’t obvious, I’ve based her paint job on Alice from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.  The base is one of my favorite parts, and I love how it came out – you can even see a bit of reflection in some shots.  I definitely got fed up with the dress at points, and just had to leave it in order to move on, but overall am fairly happy.  The white in particular, I probably could have redone it using some of the tips from Jen Greenwald’s class that I took last year.

Current WIPs

Darkspace Hasami from Relic Knights.  I’m loving the Spectral Moss/Clear Magenta combination.  Thanks to Adrift for suggesting Clear Magenta.

I’ve been painting recently, but I haven’t taken any pictures in a while. Rather than post nothing, I’ll post crappy pictures of stuff that’s currently on my table.
