: Grymn Martian Patrol

It was only a matter of time before I got some more Grymn on the go... here is the start of my Martian Patrol (after the terraforming has happened ;) ):

I still have a way to go yet... but it's highlighting and basing so it can't take too much longer... can it?

Here's an album with WIP photos to this point:

You'll be finished in no time... Well the first squad anyway.

I have two of them finished... apart from the base rim and a drybrush on the base.

As for 'first squad'... :D

This is the first time I have ever used crackle paint and I think it looks OK. I need to get it a bit thicker on the base to get more of a crackle effect but, as I go along, I'll get the levels worked out :) .

All the troops are now finished... so it's time to start on the characters :) :

Very nicely done. I like the crackle paint but it does seem to need more depth to it

There is a thicker version called Martian Iron Crust (rather than Iron Earth) but I went for this one because it was less bumpy.

I could put a wash on it but I prefer it like it is... it reminds me of 1976 :)

I like the degree of crackling.  It fits perfectly I think.

In other news... the Grymn have hired a mercenary tracker called Roddy:

I like the albino-like skin tone. Nice work.

Excellent, indeed.

Cheers :)

It's a bit worse in person... but it fits the bill and seeing as I haven't painted very much at all over the last couple of years, I am quite happy with it :) .

Next up, will be a couple more Grymn characters :)

All too familiar with that myself. :hmmm

Although I haven't been painting, I have been sculpting A LOT!

Loads of conversions and a good handful of full sculpts.

Had to go where my muses dictated :)

Nice colour to blend into the martian landscape.
