6MMRPC: Week 25 Stony Head Terrain (Dream Pod 9 Heavy Gear)

A bit of a disappointing week painting wise. I managed to finish my fig for the caffeineforge weekly posting (which I'll reveal Wednesday), but I wasn't super happy with it's appearance. Similarly, these figs were pretty easy to paint up, but I'm just not too jazzed about them. I think part of the challenge is I want them system, size, and location agnostic...which prevents me from doing too many details. I don't want vegetation b/c they may show up in a dessert or badland. Similarly, bird droppings may tighten up the size or terrain biome they would be in. Bah.






These two guys are resin heads produced by dream pod 9 (makers of heavy gear). I picked them up in a lot auction off ebay and they both come in a single clamshell pack. I attached them to a sampler pack of bases I got from 15mm.uk and based with sand.






While working on another fig I painted the sand dark brown....which really didn't work very well for my normal yellow bone/khaki dry brush forumula (normally over black). The other base (squat guy) I tried to make brown ish to match the badland mounds I made previously with the hint of red in the brown. I think it's the better basing scheme in this case.

  1. Interesting. Would make for some cool scenery in a rpg. Or Labyrinth-type movie. :)

    1. I was thinking jungles and tropical islands. Maybe pulp or pirates. The cool thing about these heads is they can be used in lots of capacities.
