And my goals for Deathball (along with some partially painted players for scale). Peeled foamcore on a CD with a balsa wood pillar and a clip from my flonase for the goal hoop on top. Magnet in the center of the base and washer on the bottom of the pillar.
a little backstory: this ratmen call the cities of vinci home. living in the sewers and dark alleys they have watched the people of vinci prosper. they have learned about technology and forging, alchemie and economics. over the years the ratmen have become technological advanced just like the people of vinci have become. but one thing they could never create: an automa artificial intelligence. luckyly ratmen tend to mutate rather often and so the large orgrelike ones get fused with the weapons and armor to create some kind of "automa". some day they will stop stealing from scrapyards or take the treassures thrown away by the people in the cities and become an independent empire....
this is 1500 points of ratmen. some units and models have been converted/magnetized and rebased for this project. and quiet a few are second hand. as you can see it is still wip but i wanted to post an update.
a closeup on the heroes. 2 warlords and 2 warlocks.
These two fine gentlemen are founding members of my human AoF:Skirmish warband, to be reinforced with a unit of Sunland Troopers from Highlands Miniatures. They themselves are metal castings by Avatars of War. I'm learning to paint miniatures with oils (I have some experience with oil on canvas, but this is new). I love how fast the painting itself goes compared to acrylics, but drying times are indeed very long. Especially with these guys, I did some heavy linseed oil washes that look great (photo doesn't do them justice), but I belive they will dry for weeks — if not months.
