: Alien v Predator...the painting begins.
: BulldogUK April 03, 2016, 08:50:29 AM
Figured I better make a start on my AvP stuff, might only be a couple of years before I get the rest of my stuff!

Couple of days work and all the Aliens and Yutani commandos are done, quick airbrush then picked out a few details with the hairy stick. Never been a gloss finish man myself but felt that something on these Little fellas had to take on the classic shiny look so I compromised and glossed the heads, quite a funky look, pleased with it

Marines done! I decided to add some cables to the loader (simply 1mm wire bent to shape) because in my opinion a loader just aint a loader with all those lovely hydraulic cables!

Preds all finished, guess I sit and twiddle my thumbs until wave 3 now! Although I do have an APC tucked away somewhere and I'm thinking an egg sack for the queen might be a fun project!

Finished the Queen set piece for AvP, sculpted the egg sack and a little plastic card and milliput and jobs a good 'un! Added some re-casts of the eggs (personal use only) as they look cool and can be used in scenarios. Queen simply parks her bony butt up against the egg sack and can be removed to leg it down the corridors after those pesky marines when they nail all her cute little babies, evil B&stards that they are! Sure I saw a McFarlane or similar vignette sometime in the past which inspired this

Finally painted up the Khurasan Miniatures APC, only been sat in the box for about 2 years I think! End of the day knocked it together in a morning so no time wasted there! Anyhow, makes a fine stand-in until Prodos bring out an official model and even then it will make a good alternative variant when the tabletop rules are released :)

Oh yeah, Prodos Dropship landed too, easy kit, 1 day build, painted it in a couple of days (its only green after all)!

I used magnets to allow the lower weapon pods to open/close as these are fixed on the standard model, this way she can fully deploy into that awesome looking profile that made us all gasp 'F*&V YEAH!' the first time we watched the film :)

All done, bagged a NECA APC, its a usable size for the Dropship as the Khurasen one is too big, I'll still be using both as variants in my games however ;) Quick repaint on the NECA model too, nothing fancy just tickled the base colour over to bring it in to line with the DS

I like the version of the dropship with the vectored thrusters on the rear fuselage so quick and simple mod here, 1/48 harrier thrusters, you can pick them up on ebay, nothing fancy, just slap 'em on with a bit of glue and it makes those flat side panels look a little more interesting

What the hell, I bought another! Cheyenne '02' reporting for duty! magnetised this one to allow for gear up/down options. Also make some air brakes that simply plug in or out depending on what look you want, was an afterthought to add a little interest to the plain fuselage and I didn't want to dremel away at an already finished model!

Camera tripods make excellent adjustable stands that can drop over existing models in play rather than having to shift everything around ;)

I was going to do this second model in the 'official' Brown Bess then thought 'F87k it, it's my toy and I like green'...so here you go!

OH MY GOD!!! ...these are HUGE!! I've always admired your work but having received my Cheyenne today and now having an understanding of the amount of work you've had to put in to make these look as good as they do...astonishing!!
: Re: Alien v Predator...the painting begins.
: BulldogUK January 05, 2017, 10:02:24 PM
Aye, beasts aint they!

TBH they are simple so it didn't take much work, 2 - 3 afternoons tops for each one as they go together quite well and are pretty much boring flatness when you look at them, hence the reason I added the few extra interesting bits.

I actually purchased a third and would have been happy to paint it up which is quite strange for me as I absolutely hate painting the same thing more than once, alas I sold it on eBay as I simply don't have the room!

The cockpits are nice aren't they, even have a smaller pilot to represent Corporal Ferro, nice touch

Anyhow, looking forward to seeing what you do with it mate, these sort of things are your area of expertise, I'm still winging it ;)

: dwartist January 05, 2017, 10:15:50 PM
" ...these sort of things are your area of expertise" - don't know about that but I'll be happy if mine looks anywhere near as good as your two. Interesting when you say "...they go together quite well" my one is a pig of a kit with poor fit between the major hull parts, lots of resin flow marks (some quite thick in parts) and a quite badly warped missile swing arm (looks okay when open but fits poorly when closed even after several attempts to reshape in hot water). About what I've come to expect from Forgeworld or Puppets War (PW such good value I'm willing to overlook the extra work needed to correct) but had higher hopes for Prodos.
Still I've persevered and now it's starting to look okay - lots of sanding still to do. Cockpit is excellent, yes and about the best of the castings.

That's generally my attitude too but having recently received two of Antenociti's expertly and immaculately cast Azure Dragons dropships the Cheyenne does fall short in comparison. Still, built and fixed now and as soon as I can rid myself of this coughing virus I'll drag the primer out!

Dreamforge APC, been under the desk for years now, finally cracked it open and used it for a special transport for the Wayland Yutani Commandos :)

Didn't bother with all the fantastic internal details as it's only for gaming and those bits are better put in the bits box for later ;)

It's a bloody fantastic kit, all the hatches open and the way that MG mount moves around is pure art!

Good to have you back...I was suffering withdrawal symptoms! Love the rethink on the Dreamforge Keilerkopf APC (might have to steal!), Prodos APC looks great (just received the decals I was waiting for so will push on with mine); I thought that too about the M22 Jackson (from the technical manual?) - I have one of the khurasan tanks but I have to find the turret hatch I've misplaced! Marine Scout Car works too (I have one - Clear Horizon btw  - so might have to steal that too - just off to try it on the dropship ramp...
: Re: Alien v Predator...the painting begins.
: BulldogUK September 21, 2017, 08:05:42 PM
Spotted your thread on the APC, as always your dropship and APC will be beyond museum quality and a pleasure to gaze upon :)

Ahh yes, clear horizon, I get through so much stuff I forget myself..have edited the post to give proper credit ;)

yes the M22 is from the technical manual, I am half tempted to scratch a marine razorback up next after seeing some concept sketches on one of the FB forums, its very marmite tbh but I like marmite!
: Re: Alien v Predator...the painting begins.
: dwartist September 22, 2017, 08:20:26 AM
Razorback! Do it! Cast it! Sell me one!
There was a 1/35 resin model which has sadly been OOP for some time now. I very rarely miss the opportunity to buy 'Aliens' related garage kits but alas...
I think the concept vehicle was created by Ron Cobb for Aliens but was considered a bit too complicated to model so they settled for the one we know and love.
FATC made a range of not-Aliens vehicles in 15mm which are excellent but again OOP (I do have these!) and would be great if resized to 28mm.
Nice find with the Clear Horizon 'Nemesis' - fits perfectly!

Here is my play on the original concept APC from the Aliens film. I don't like doing direct copies so somewhere between carving the polystyrene and casting the resin I injected my own little touches  :)
