  1. Seems like a bit of a crunch for two weeks, but a solid idea. Good luck!
  2. I did one of these as well, I'll have to post it as soon as I finish the last little bit. Really easy conversion.
  3. @Golem2God I honestly wish I knew. Right now I'm calling it magic purple, as I literally don't know how I got there. I wasn't happy and kept adding layers and shading etc until it looked about like that. I do know I used a black primer with no highlight spray, vallejo game air purples, their blue wash, and the GW purple wash. Exactly what went where.... not as much. For airbrush, something like, black, dark purple, light purple, thinned dark purple, light purple, GW purple wash mixed with a few drops of vallejo's (VERY STRONG btw) blue ink, spot highlight purple, fine spot highlight with a little purple and a little white thinned. Brush lowlights were black or dark purple depending on whether or not they faced upwards, and brush highlights were thinned light purple, with a 50/50 white mix for the brightest spots. Wish I could be of more help.
  4. https://brittonstinyadventure.wordpress.com/2016/01/11/builds-on-a-budget-squadkill-team-case/ Ignore the rest of the blog because it's old and I never update it, but this post might be useful to you. It's not answering the question directly, but might be a useful storage tool for you in a space like that. These cases are really good for small infinity forces/club ringer armies as they have a couple key benefits. A.Cheap to build, and hold 12 25mm base models, and a couple of some 40mm or dice, tokens, etc. B. Actually protect the model and its paint job, whether stored horizontally on a shelf, or in a bag/backpack vertically (rare for cases IMO) C. Allow you to see what army is in the case via the clear lid. I have bigger foam cases, but this is nice when I just want to take a handful of models for a demo or something.
  5. I am really looking forward to watching this project progress. Just looks great.
  6. Very nice! Love the sword especially. On the armor...is that like, highlights done with an airbrush through a stencil?
  7. Finally done! Suuuppppeerr stoked about this, only took me like 2+ months off and on. Laziness? Probably. Oh well. (There will be some more angles and WIP shots in my paintlog later)
  8. Changing gears a bit, here are my collected Yu Jing I've painted so far. If you keep up on the painting challenge, a lot of this will be familiar, but it should all be collected into one thread at least. Going for a purple black/grey/white theme. There's a lot of individual variance between models, but I like that... feel like it fits with the direct action operations kind of feel. Generally, the more specialty ISS type units have more purple, stealthy/scary troops have black, general rank and file troopers wear more grey, and JSA units will favor white. Anyway, here's the army as it stands. Ninja with Tactical Bow Guilang FO Tiger Soldier (red veil figure with combi) Daofei with HMG More to come soon, I hope. Plugging away on a couple more models.
  9. That's sort of intentional here. The base really isn't finished... trying to decide what kind of stuff to add based on what armies I think I'll end up using him with. Just a placeholder for now.
  10. First painted model done! Man it's amazing what you can get done when you have the day off. Went way faster than I thought it would. Next up, finishing the Guijia!
  11. Based on the color of the MDF in the background I'd say the pic is tinted a little blue, so I think there is black. I'd guess the white balance on the camera is just a tad off.
  12. @CanisLupus that armor is top notch!
  13. Well, that's fair. In my mind, it's little stones mixed with some sand. I actually like that substrate (crushed apricot seeds meant for soap from Michael's btw), because it adds a little texture. Again, opinion from me, but the resin desert bases always lack texture. Let me put something else up and see if that's more agreeable. Speaking of borderlands... this guy! Not technically CB but he's going to get passed around several armies as various types of auxbot.
  14. @Monni I sort of respectfully disagree? Might make more sense overall later, but it's basically based on the scrubland-y area called "The Dust" from Borderlands 2. It's arid, warm tinged, and littered with post apocalptic raider kind of scenery. Something like this?
  15. I had thought about something similar. A less evil looking combined army force... really curious to see how this goes.
