I've not died. I've just been busy.
Nothing has been done on the Blight Drone since the last post but I have started putting the Dreadball team together. My hope was to get them done for the next meet up, however that starts this Friday so that isn't going to happen.
I picked the robots for my team. In all honesty I don't like most of the teams Mantic have done, esp the Xenos ones, I think in the main they are pretty horrible.
I have to be even more honest and say I really don't like Mantic models, I can't stand this material they use.
This team is not going to be brilliantly painted, I am going for a very basic build and paint job. I got so annoyed just putting the first three together I nearly chucked the whole lot of them and didn't touch them again for a week.
I have so far only got three in a PIP state and a further two assembled
I couldn't be bothered with the shiny look Mantic use, I wanted a battered, dirty look instead.
Still need to do more weathering on these three and also pick out some detail like the 'eye'.
Sooner I get them built the better, it's the only set of Mantic models I intend on buying and the sooner I can say I never have to clean one up again the better.
On a positive note the game itself is very good.
