Painting DOOM: Catch-up

Painting DOOM: The Board Game

Hi folks, it has been a while since I’ve made a post. It’s part laziness and part exhaustion when I get home from work. I cannot remember when last I made a follow up on my DOOM posts and but let’s fix that. Here’s where I’m at and why.

I started painting the Revenants last year but I really did not like the way they turned out so I delayed in getting anything in writing. Then I was robbed. They took my phone and because I was bummed about the Revenants I had not downloaded the pics yet ☹ that’s where I left things.

Why did I not like them?

Well it turned out nothing like I was expecting it too… I can’t put my finger on it but from the start I just felt like I was rushing and I was kind of meh about it. I was not enjoying it. That is where I should have stopped, maybe taken a break and then come back to it.

From the front he is not that bad, just a bit shiny.

I don’t even remember what I did to get them like this… I thought about stripping them, but I’ve got such a huge back log of painting I think I just want to finish the set so that I can say that I’ve finish something 😉.  It’s also nice to have examples of “mistakes” to use as learning experiences.

The rear looks bad IMO, in a game he should be fine though. A friend has said that he does look creepy so I guess that is ok.

The marines.

These guys I painted up long before I started the painting on this blog. They are not finished, I was planning on playing the game and when I was learning the rules I realised that they looked VERY similar. So much so that it was quite easy to confuse which model was which. this was more apparent from behind which is the facing of the models while you are playing.

They don’t look half bad except for my attempt at making the metals look like ceramic.

It’s a quick, incomplete, paint job, however it did what it needed to do. The models were easy to tell apart. The trouble is that they look unfinished, and I think they need to be done properly to finish this series. I can’t have the Revenants and the marines not part of the series!

I have to say that I’m going to paint them up pretty much the same way, maybe just a bit neater.

You can expect a little how to on stripping paint from plastic models soon.

What’s next?

These guys, that’s what!

Great big Cyber Mancubi.

Lovely chunky models. Recently I watched a video from a chap named Squidmar, he challenged people to paint more often and to try new things. It made me think: ‘I have learnt new things while doing this series, why stop now?’

I’m going to try using a Redgrass Wet Palette that I bought about 2 months ago and has just been sitting on my desk. R1000 and its been lying there for about 2 months! I’m going to open it! *gasp* *shock* *horror*

Until next time. I promise it won’t be as long as my last lapse in posting. I seem to have found my muse and I’m actually finishing up multiple models a week. Heck, I’m even playing games again!
