Hell Divers WIP, and a gift

Hell Divers are fantastic.  Really.  I'm working on another six right now and as good as the sculpts are, I think what I like most is no doubles!  I'm pretty sure that in the three packs I bought (Alpha, Bravo and Omega squads) every figure is a different sculpt, so no bending arms and cutting heads to avoid your squad looking like a chorus line.





Obviously I'm painting these to match my previous four, so lots of Ordic Olive/Okavango Swamp.



Robot Monster (redux)
15 mm


I enjoyed painting this Khurasan figure again, this time as a birthday present for my brother.  Retro-licious!  I have to say I got a lot of use out of these packs...

  1. Nice work, Mr. M. The basing is quite an accomplishment.

    1. Thanks. My alternative to the good old "play sand and white glue" is a textured press mold lifted from a backyard rock. The bases are greenstuff with this texture applied, and small stones pushed in as debris/rocks. It gives a soil/mud (or rocky crag depending on the colours used) appearance without the overly uniform look that sand has.

    1. Although I think in the Bravo squad there are two riflemen that are repeated from the Alpha squad... but they were chosen since they are pretty cool poses :)
