So I've been doing some painting ...

Postby andrewgpaul » Mon Dec 17, 2012 5:51 pm

The first of my Kickstarter rewards have arrived, so I've painted up some of Brit-Cit's finest:

I've also painted up some of my Mega-City 1 Judges, from the good old days of Gangs of Mega-City 1:

I've added a couple more, that arrived through the letterbox in the meantime:

Street Judge on Lawmaster, Anderson and DeMarco:
Image

A closer shot of Anderson and DeMarco. I tried to add DeMarco's freckles, but I'm not quite as skilled as the guy who did the one for Mongoose:
Image

And since it's Christmas, and I remembered the cover to the Judge Dredd Megazine #279, I did this:
Image

I don't have a painted Dredd, so DeMarco answered this call.

Nice! What flavors black/gray do you use? You did a nice job with the black and shading/highlighting. I can never get black to come out properly.

The black is simple; base coat of black (I used Vallejo Game Color 72051 Black, but any black will do), then highlighted the edges with Vallejo Model Color 70862 Black Grey then VGC 72050 Cold Grey, and a final highlight on the very corners with Cold Grey mixed with white.

The blue leathers are VGC 72020 Imperial Blue, then two or three washes of GW Badab Black until it stops looking dark blue and looks bluish black instead, then highlight with Imperial Blue again and then a mix of Imperial Blue and VGC 72048 Sombre Grey. The plan is that all "black" leathers will be this blue colour and all black armour plate will actually be black, to keep a distinction between the textures.

Nice line highlighting. Good steady hand that.

Did you attach the judge to the lawmaster before you painted it? I'm about to start mine and can't figure out which way is best - on or off.

I painted him separately. I could have done with putting a pin up his arse to give me something to hold.

And now those fine (?) upstanding (?) citizens of the Citi-Def:

I love the citi-def. The colors express uniformity and also a complete lack of military knowledge - great stuff!

They look pretty good. I'd suggest a green wash over the gloves and pads to bring out the details, and you appear to have a miscast Walter.

IIRC Walter's hand was a sepawate pawt.

I love the flame effect and foam from the riot judge.

Love the armorcast effects - I just picked some up a few weeks ago and had never thought of using the energy blasts as riot foam - I'll steal that idea if it's not too cheeky :wink:
