YIPPIE DREADBALL

December 30, 2012

I love Dreadball!!

I love the models, I love the story behind it all, I love the ability to have a quick game or two a night and the opportunity to run a league and make your team better.

Now I must admit I supported the Kickstarter so I have all 4 first season teams and the MVP’s so I have a lot to look at.

That is also my problem……Where to start??

I know the Ref.

All the photos in the rule book have the ref White, Now this looks great it’s not what I wanted :/ fussy I know. But there was a drawing in the book of the ref in a white and grey color scheme, there we go that’s better. 

The Pink? Well that one of my 6 year old twins idea( It’s a girl Daddy it must have pink on her)

over all I’m happy with how it turned out( The photo’s don’t do these models justice unfortunately  camera or cameraman’s fault?)

Next I did two MVP’s, The Enforcer and Number 88.

I tried to keep the color scheme as close to pictures and the written material as possible. Number 88 was easy, Black with a mirrored visor.

The Enforcer’s colors sound easy but trying to get that old, battle used Armour look without making ti look like he’s just been pummeled  is a fine line, hopefully I’m on the right side of that line.

Now I’m working on the Trontek 29ers.

So far I’ve done a Striker, a Jack and a Guard. The color scheme I chose is the Visitors kit.

The green and white looks great on these models, it require a bit of work but I think it’s worth it in the end.

The Dreadball gloves on the Striker and Jack I wanted to stand out so I’ve used a shaped piece of clear plastic to show the energy field of the glove.

 

Hope you like them.

First Models

December 30, 2012

As I said in the last post the first models I got from Mantic was a Veer-Myn starter Army.

I love these models, loads of personality in the sculpts, a lot of detail and over all a great idea and background for a space fairing creature.

I looked at these models once I had cleaned them up and assembled them, trying to work out a color scheme that I felt would do them justice( and would be suitable to my painting skill)

What I finally decided on was a scheme where the characters, commanders Sgt’s etc would stand out from the minions. 

So it goes like this.

Commanders

These guys are the white lab rats, their larger, smarter and meaner than your average rat.

 

Special characters.

These guys are your piebald rats almost as large as the commanders and just as temperamental.

sorry no photos yet 😦

Sergeants.

The black sewer rats, they will take a bite out of you as soon as look at you and perfect to keep the troops in line.

Troops( minions)

These are your average brown rat, the multitudes, They are legion. There is a steady stream of these guys to send into the fray.

So there you go my Warpath Veer-myn starter army with color scheme and a couple of pics.

Hope you enjoy.

And we begin

December 29, 2012

Hi everyone,

I am trying to become a Pathfinder for Mantic Games and part of the conditions were to create a blog to let people know of their products and up coming events as well as my experiances with them and their products.

After a slight pause I thought a blog would be great whether I become a Pathfinder or not.

So here we go.

I found Mantic Games by accident while searching for something to use in a conversion I was planning in another game, but after a quick look through their website I decided to save the address to come back to later. About 2 weeks later I came back and had a better look and was impressed by the figures I could see and their idea for the future. I was telling a friend about this site when he said he had already brought some figures from them and showed them to me. Well that was it, I had to get some too.

I brought a Veer-Myn starter army( Got to love man sized rats in space :)) and started a love affiar with these models.

Last October I found out about a Kickstarter for thier new game, DREADBALL.

Yup, I supported it, and in early December I received my first package from that kickstarter. All I can say is WOW! there are a lot of models in here and the hardest part was trying to figure out where to start? Veer-Myn? Forge Fathers? MVP’s oh the choices.

 

I’ve decided to start with the Ref, a couple of MVP’s and the Trontek 29ers just to kick things off, so I will be back soon with the next post and some photo’s.
