Further escalation of the new insane project... as alluded to here, I've started (and now finished) a new 15mm sci-fi army to face off against my Earth Force Marines. I chose a machine army, for a couple of reasons: a) machines are cool (think Skynet or Zero-One) and b) they are a snap to paint fast. In this post I'll review the project from start to finish as (for once) I remembered to take a few WIP photos!
15mm.co.uk and the spider tanks are from RAFM's 28mm "USX" range (the "Enforcer Drones"). I based the lot on Flames of War bases from Battlefront.
Partway through there arrived a parcel from Khurasan, containing two of their Mekanoid VTOLs.
Bases were drybrushed with Codex Grey, then Fortress Grey to build a highlight.
Some details were added to the special weapons, such as the flamethrower robots.
Decals on the aircraft...
And finally, static grass on the bases - GW ``dead grass``.
A shot of Dullcote and some gloss clear on the lenses, and we have an army ready for the tabletop!
