I normally paint pretty fast these days, but I took my time on those sculpts, as they were just too nice to rush.

Micheal


Freddy


Ghostface
Ghostface is very bright in this photo, the grays are much darker in person, but I couldn't get a good shot of them.


Leathface, Pinhead, Sam, and Chucky
Leatherface is my favorite of the mishmash builds. The three different Heroclix minis that make him up really mesh well. For Pinhead, I ended up positioning himself terribly on his base, he's standing right on the edge, leaving a bunch of open space. So I got a little creative with a knife and blood effect, and I gave him a victim.


Terminator and cooler Terminator
T-2 follows the exact formula laid out in his Book, but for T-1 I tricked him out with an assault rifle from Captain America and a pistol from an ODST, so that he better matches his movie loadout.


Ash


I'm going to round out the horror faction, and then get to work on slayers. With how much I love horror, my games of C3G may become superheroless
Glad you liked them. They turned out pretty sweet.

Re: C3G Horror - Orgbsane's Hobby Thread

Rebasing/Painting Arena of The Planewalkers and Speedpainted Mohicans

Heroscape is dead, long live Heroscape! While watching the crowdfunding attempt, I had been considering ways to rebase the figures to match my current collection without losing all the extra strength gained by having the miniatures molded directly to the base. Without some very, very precise cutting of the base stickers, it's not happening. Next best option was to cut off the miniature and strengthen the bond between the base and the mini. To achieve this, I bought a small hobby drill off Amazon test out a method on my Arena of The Planeswalkers minis, which I had recently been painting and using for the Arena of the Valkriery custom project.

1. AotP are often painted pretty poorly around their feet. While I wasn't going to repaint the prepainted models, I did tidy them up a bit.


2. Cut the model clean off with an Exacto knife. For the Lantern Geists, I used wire cutters to clip the base away and put them on the usual Trexy3d base. Fair warning, clipping them did cause deadly shards of plastic to fly everywhere.


3. Next up, I used the hobby driller to drill holes into the base and one of the model's feet. I used an unpowered drill because I was worried about making sure I had absolute control over it. I was concerned it might not work on the harder and more brittle 3d prints, but it did! You can see the Mohicans based with this method below.


4. Now, I just needed a connector. Naturally, I used the most obvious material, a used incense stick. Hear me out lol. The piece is short enough that it's not in danger of snapping, and soft enough that it can be slightly large than the hole, which allows for extra strength after it gets covered in superglue and pushed in.


5. While the superglued incense stick is drying in the model's foot, I drilled a hole in the base and gave the edges three to four coats of Army Painter Leather Brown, which is an exact match for Heroscape bases. The base's plastic was not meant to be painted and it will scrap off easily, so I had to be careful until it was coated with varnish.


6. Lastly, I put the sticker on, poked the hole, and that it's it! Now the model just needs a bit of superglue on the feet, and once the stick is pushed into the base, I added a drop of superglue from the underside as well.


Here's a few pictures of everyone based and painted! I left the squads pretty simple, but I was a bit more, ah, ambitious with Ozuul. I loved the gravity theme, so I tried to give him a black hole/galaxy theme, with mixed results. I don't dislike it per se, I think he looks decent from a distance, but I might try to refine some methods and eventually give Ozuul a remaster.







Lastly, I got a batch of Mohicans done. Not much to say here except it was another rousing success for speedpaints, I finished all nine in a couple hours! I'm considering buying a 3D printer and if I do, I'll be looking to get at least 4 of every common squad, and you can bet speedpaint will be with me every step of the way . @caps I used your recommended mix of water and runic grey to wash them, and I was very happy with the results! That will probably be my go-to wash now, so thanks for that

Re: AotV Rebasing/Painting, Mohicans - Orgbsane's Hobby Thre

I don't think I recommended water mixed with runic grey (since I don't have runic grey) though I have done watered down speed paints as washes before with mixed results.

These all look great!

Thanks! I just went back and checked, you recommended Gravelord grey, which is what I used. As usual, my brain is making up stuff on me lol. I think Runic grey might have been Citadel color…

no I did not intend that pun. I did not even see it until you pointed it out.

With the announcement that the miniatures will be unpainted, some have expressed concerns about the time and cost of painting miniatures. I decided to test both of these limiters to get a number on how cheap I could go on paint supplies, and how long it takes to paint a miniature to match Heroscape's standard. With that in mind, I purchased some 3d printed Protectors from TREX (https://www.heroscapers.com/communit...ad.php?t=54809), and the cheapest paint and brushes I could find at Walmart.

I'll list the needed equipment and cost when I do my Protectors post, but before I put my precious Protectors to the brush, I needed to test the paint. And there is a project I have been putting off for literal years... Rebasing my C3G collection.

@orgsbane I just came across this thread of yours and looked at your Army Painter Speedpaint test. I have quite a few Citadel Paints and the Mega Army Painter paint set. After painting a decent number of AoS Warhammer figures I was about to order the GW contrast paints, but the price pushed me away. I am also getting a 3D Resin Printer and will be printing a lot of the 3D scanned models that some of our community members have created STL files for. With that said I will have a lot of painting to do and was hoping to find a more expedited way of painting. When Army Painter came out with their speedpaints I have been about to pull the trigger on ordering the mega speedpaint set for two months. Now seeing your results and your opinion of them I am ordering them up. Thanks for enlightening the community here.

Iím so glad I could help you make that decision! Iím exactly in the same position as you, the thought of painting all those printed minis was daunting. The results arenít as good as taking your time, but man, they look great on the table, so thatís good enough for me

Agree and painting is truly something I enjoy as a part of my tabletop gaming hobby. I do not paint for show quality I just paint for looking good on the battlefield. Based on your results and some Youtube video results I have viewed this will fit perfectly in to my hobby level of effort and tabletop ready in a much faster way. Thanks again.

@orgsbane for Christmas my family gave me the Army Painter Mega Speedpaint Set. I cracked them open and painted three figures that I made a custom card for called the Duskmantle Operatives. I need to do just a few touch ups and details, but below are the results. I really like these paints. The only issue I did have was some reactivation that was occurring.
