All the focus on skirmish games like Rangers of Shadowdeep, Zona Alfa and Fallout means a need for various monsters and creatures for incidental contact. I focused primarily on getting all of the science fiction inspired beasts done, with a few fantasy types as well. The miniatures pictured above are a pair of 'cyber dogs' from Brother Vinni miniatures inspired by Fallout 3. Useful for games like This is Not a Test and Fallout: Wasteland Warfare
Speaking of which, I also finished a set of Gouls and Glowing ones from Modiphious. As with most of their Resin kits these are rather expensive for a horde type unit. For the most part, these figs are getting table time for Zona Alfa. I went with a mix of greens and yellows for the "Glowing Ones"
For the ghouls I did a base of AP Barbarian Flesh with dark brown wash rather than the normal flesh wash. I highlighted them with Necrotic flesh as well.
On to the critters, I found these old GW Wolves in the bits box. I think they started out life carrying goblins, but they work well as a feral pack for either Zona Alfa or Rangers of Shadowdeep. I did these with the a more intense highlight to have them match up with the figures I painted for this collection back in the 90's.
I am taking a similar approach with my 10mm ACW miniatures. For the confederates I do several blocks of miniatures in the same paint scheme, and then pull them together to form a patchwork of infantry units. The union troops are simply being done by painting all of one sculpt at a time, and then basing them when all 200 figures is complete.
Otherwise, a lot of modern Special Forces figures and 16th Century Sohei await their turn in front of the brush.
