Alien v Predator...the painting begins.
« on: 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 :)

Really like the subtle red and what I think is yellow in the bodywork.

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

Thanks B! Ordered one as soon as I saw yours! If it comes out any where near as good I'll be happy....I am tempted to camo it though. BTW did you glaze the 'Sharks' Dragonfly?
