"Trapped In The Midst Of An Outbreak."
These two 28mm scale 3D printed pieces are available as part of the Resident Evil 2 - Board Game - 3D Wall sets - Set 2 & Corner Set 1 by the "Pro Tech Painting" eBay store, and have been designed to be used with the "cooperative board game" produced by "Steamforged Games". The large wall measures 80mm in width and 35mm in height, whilst the corner wall measures 40mm in width and 35mm in height.
As advertised, the brick walls did require some quite significant "final cleaning before painting" with both a nail file and sharp modelling knife. They were then primed with two coats of "Vallejo" Heavy Red and subsequently shaded using a mixture of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade and “The Army Painter” Strong Tone Quickshade. Finally, the models were heavily dry-brushed with (more) "Vallejo" Heavy Red.
Despite my best intentions this month to paint an entire Witch's warband for "Frostgrave", I've not really made that much progress on my hard plastic figures from the "Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago" Tribals boxed set by "North Star Military Figures". One of the reasons for this has been that I rather fancied finishing off a metal miniature of a White Gorilla I have had lying around my painting table since the release of "Thaw Of The Lich Lord" five years ago.
But, mainly due to my disappointment with the actual sculpt, I have found the 'wandering ape' quite a chore to pigment. On the surface, I thought the fang-toothed brute would prove quite a straightforward subject considering it is predominantly white with just its fleshy hands. feet, mouth and chest showing. However, a lot of the detail marvellously captured in the model's 'official paint-job' doesn't actually seem to be all that clear on the figure in front of me.
In addition, I fear I have once again succumbed to the trap of creating my own plastic miniatures by using one of "North Star Military Figures" excellent "Frostgrave" kits, as I have literally covered my Witch's tribal warriors in all manner of bracelets, pouches, hand-weapons and evil wooden face masks. All of these tiny details need 'picking out', shading and highlighting, and this is proving something of a time-consuming process for a project I initially anticipated being reasonably straightforward.
Luckily, my three remaining FedSec Troopers by "Crooked Dice Game Design Studio" continue to be a lot of fun to work on. The 'dead-ringers' for Supreme Commander Servalan's Terran Federation soldiers have now had all their "Vallejo" Heavy Red gas-mask visors and Heavy Khaki trim roughly layered in place, so simply need these areas to be tidied up before each figure can be appropriately shaded with a wash or two...
