I have been tied up with some real life stuff over the last two weeks, and did not even make it yesterday to EllisCon. Rather than wait for the AAR from that convention to appear on Peter's blog ( Blunders on the Danube), I thought I'd catch up on some recent work. I have some Indian army painted up as NWF participants and some Space Invaders pretty much out of the 1950's.
The Indian army castings are OG from the colonial line. The Space Invaders are from Bob Murch's Pulp Figures. Since the holiday season means fewer and shorter games are likely over the next few weeks, these fellows may soon square off against each other or some other foes in a Pulp era game. I used some craft paints marked Khaki from the Americana line, a wash of 'walnut' stain from the same brand. The paints for the gunstock and barrel were from Howard Hues and Vallejo respectively.
The turban includes the wrapping showing a patch of 'Blue Bell' Americana and a dark stripe of 'Opaque Blue' from the Ceramcoat line. The aliens are a coat of Ceramcoat Dolphin blue, with some of the Bluebell in spots as wel as black equipment belts.
