Things have been pretty busy at work, and it seems like the weekends have been jam packed with activities as well. As a result, I haven’t gotten much painted lately. This Sunday I had a few minutes, so I completed some things that had been sitting on the painting table for a couple of weeks. The first two items were these two science fiction “computer cars.” I found them at the local hobby shop. I think they are for Infinity. I don’t use slot bases, so I took the ones that came with the ducks (see below) and made a science fiction shipping container.
I had been looking for this figure since the first Agent Peggy Carter miniseries. Greg found it in a bin full of figures in the flea market at Fall In last month.
In an earlier post, I provided pictures of these duck men from Rebel Miniatures. I have been using them as the foundation of my gang in our Frostgrave games. Everyone else has their Frostgrave figures mounted on snow bases. I ordered a second set of figures, painted them, and mounted them on snow bases for our upcoming second Frostgrave campaign.
I tried a few different things on the bases. First, I painted the bases light blue. Then I applied snow flocking. On top of that I added a little of this white flakey stuff O got from Scenic Express. When I sprayed the figures will dull coat, the white flocking became translucent, with too much of the light blue showing through. So I dabbed on more glue and added more of the white flocking. The look is okay, but not quite what I wanted.
