The idea is that you paint £10-00 worth of Void stuff each month. Now I already have all of the Void stuff I won't be following exactly...but what I aim to do is get a small unit painted as often as I can manage, in between the super-soldiers, Spitfire and Terminator that I am currently working on.
To start, I have a small unit of Viper Wing bikes consisting of 3 bikes and a bike with side-car. I have assembled them, cleaned and based them and they are in the process of getting an under-coat ready for the painting to start proper.
I haven't decided on colour schemes yet...but they will be quite dark and maybe 'urban' themed in some way. I won't be following the schemes in the Void rule book and although these are VASA vehicles, they will be acting as generic sci-fi (because I don't game, it doesn't really matter).
I have had these sitting in the cupboard for ages so it is a good excuse to get something going...watch this space!
On top of this, I have managed to sell some Orca battle-suits which have funded a purchase of some Mantic Space Dwarfs. I have 10 basic troops and 5 heavy troops ordered and on their way from Wayland Games. Hopefully they will arrive soon and I can throw a basic paint job on them. I reckon base-coat, wash and base-coat should do it. I will also be aiming to undo some of the misconceptions of the bird-beak helmets by painting them in the same colours as the rest of the armour...we shall see if it works.
See you from the river!
