Two science fiction vehicles and a container of nuclear waste

Two science fiction vehicles and a container of nuclear waste

Things have been pretty busy at work, and it seems like the weekends have been jam packed with activities as well.  As a result, I haven’t gotten much painted lately.  This Sunday I had a few minutes, so I completed some things that had been sitting on the painting table for a couple of weeks.  The first two items were these two science fiction “computer cars.”  I found them at the local hobby shop.  I think they are for Infinity.  I don’t use slot bases, so I took the ones that came with the ducks (see below) and made a science fiction shipping container.

I had been looking for this figure since the first Agent Peggy Carter miniseries.  Greg found it in a bin full of figures in the flea market at Fall In last month.

In an earlier post, I provided pictures of these duck men from Rebel Miniatures.  I have been using them as the foundation of my gang in our Frostgrave games.  Everyone else has their Frostgrave figures mounted on snow bases.  I ordered a second set of figures, painted them, and mounted them on snow bases for our upcoming second Frostgrave campaign.

I tried a few different things on the bases.  First, I painted the bases light blue.  Then I applied snow flocking.  On top of that I added a little of this white flakey stuff O got from Scenic Express.  When I sprayed the figures will dull coat, the white flocking became translucent, with too much of the light blue showing through.  So I dabbed on more glue and added more of the white flocking.  The look is okay, but not quite what I wanted.
