I bought this set on December 30, 2017 and here we are, February 26 and finally, progress. Now, onto a detailed report of my progress to date. 1. It took me 2 days in between available time with commissions to assemble these, find out who is who and get them primered and painted a basic blue and red. Panoceania. NOMADS. After that, time got away from me but when time opened up again, I began work on the first 3 miniatures for Mission 1. I decided to paint the Alguaciles first. I asked a few weeks ago for the concept artwork since I liked how this look over the studio models. Don't get me wrong, those look fantastic but I liked how they looked in the concept artwork but couldn't find them really. I just saw glimpses on Beasts of War. The thread can be found here. https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/operation-icestorm-painting-help.1476/ I done the areas that go in black first followed by painting the areas that go red. Next to be painted are the areas that go a dark gray. As a painter on a budget, I use paints found at Michaels or A.C. Moore or Wal-mart. The color is called Pavement as the red is called Red Tuscan. Next are areas that go white. I used a white called Titanium White. Next, some areas and pistol grips went a lighter grey. I used a paint color called Dove Grey. After that, the lighted areas went a sky blue that I have forgotten about. Will edit this section when I return to the shop. With the uniforms done and touch ups applied, I painted the initial flesh tones. The flesh tones varied from craft paints to Tamiya and Vallejo and Model Master. The weapons were painted in a Model Master enamel paint called Gunmetal. The female Alguaciles clasp for her pistol holster, the raised portions of the guns magazines and dry brushing of the weapons went Tamiya X-10 Gunmetal. I have heard lots about Tamiya and I have treated mine with Tamiya's Paint Retarder and Thinner with excellent results. Next came the hair color. The dark skinned fellow I decided should look like Simon Phoenix from Demolition Man. Don't ask me why. I figured that since this is, from what I am told, an anime cyberpunk themed-ish game that the hair colors should be whatever I felt like they should go. Two things happened here. 1: Portions of the armor and uniform were tactfully done in Army Painter: Dark Tone wash. May need to correct this later. 2: Fases were done in Army Painter: Flesh Tone wash to show off facial details better. Thus why our dark-skinned guys goatee was painted to more of a partial beard. Next, the eyes. This is why I did the wash. The eyes were easier to see and with a TINY brush seen in the background, I managed on the first try. With the eyes done, I redid the female and caucasian guys face. Next came the eye colors. I really need to do something about the lighting in my domain. Next came the hard part. Pupils. Why? Because I am a crazed person who prides himself with doing difficult tasks. Painted the bases in pavement to make them neutral for most games they may be fighting on and done. Well, not quite. I noticed that the wash brought out a funny detail with this guys right ear. It looked like a blue tooth looking thing so it was painted as such. And with that, the Alguaciles are 99.9% done. I have to seal them in a sealer that I use a lot of and next, Panoceania Fusiliers.
