As you can see this was painted to match the rest of the Deepones. There was a delay as I just did not have the right base for it. Now I freely admit this was my choice and nothing but my choice. A base was supplied by Black Cat ( LINK to Shop ) and it did fit with the other bases they supplied HOWEVER I decided on an MDF base for this figure and had to wait for it to arrive.
As it has now arrived I promptly finished the Deep one off. By that I mean painted it and not fed it poison, you get the idea. So Now I have all 5 painted and ready for In Her Majesties name.... or at least I will have when I get some hybrids. (And I suspect that will be soon).
being as this one crawls the base is somewhat bigger than the others, which is no problem to me and most likely not to you either. I went for a VERY simple base to represent either beach or possible river bank or in extreme cases sea bed. Just a quick dry brush with a lighter sand colour and a couple of tufts was all it needed.
I was also able to finish a Vulture. This is by EMP Miniatures ( Shop Link ) and you can see it is on their front page and also Stocked by Col Bill (Col Bill Shop Link)) so easy to pick up at shows.
This is for Matt when he collects his latest batch of figures. Again there was an issue and I had to supply my own base and AGAIN it is my choice to do so. The model does come with 2 metal pins cast on the figure so is easy to attach to fences, poles, dead bodies etc.. But I did not have any at this time suitable so I wanted it free standing. Therefore I put it on a flying base. Matt knows nothing about this so unless he tunes it it will e a surprise. Ahh but if you cannot give a little gift to a friend the world is a sad place.
I am not 100% sure the colours are exactly right as I was working more from Walt Disney (jungle book) that real life. But let's be honest who really cares. There are after all 22 Speicesof Vulture on this planet so the chances are it will be close enough to one of the types. And if not I will concede a wildlife expert follows my blog and that is even better than being right.
next post on Tuesday and VERY likely to be WW2 15mm PBI Japanese.. It is no good I can already hear you yawning but that is what it will most likely be despite that.
Enjoy the rest of the Weekend.
All the best Clint
