Yesterday, I started on the Human team that comes with Dreadball. Today, I painted the 2 guards. They were a test for my color scheme, and I’m happy with it. The light blue didn’t come out very strong, but I’m good with that.
The assembled models. From left to right: a striker (there are 4), jack (there are 4), and guard (there are 2).
I primed all the models, and washed them. This is so I can play the game with them, even before they are painted.
Today, I painted the 2 guards. I had half a plan when I started, and it evolved as I went. That’s pretty much how I paint most things.
This is a guard basecoated and ready for a wash.
I washed it very heavily in black. When it was dry I highlighted and drybrushed it.
Next, I need to apply the number decal, then spray on a few coats of Dullcote varnish. The Dullcote puts the finishing touch on it, plus it protects the paint. I just love how minis look after a coat of Dullcote. It’s hard to describe, but they just look “finished”. After that, I’ll put just a dab of Citadel’s ‘Ardcoat on the eyes to make them shiny.
Then it’s 2 down, 8 to go!
