    Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Figured I better pull my finger out and paint the initial wave one kickstarter releases before the huge pile of wave two models land on my doorstep and bury me alive!

    Main box contents Allied forces finished, Blight forces to follow, basically the same unit types and sizes as these..

    Super jealous you have yours painted already. I've got mine all ready for primer, just need a day warm enough to do it.

    Also - not to be critical - but if you have Photoshop or another image program handy you might want to brighten your pics abit. Your lovely work is being obscured.

    This was literally a 5 second task. (That could be automated for large batches)

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Totally agree with what you say Schmapdi, I am useless at taking pictures, on the plus side my customers are always shocked when they receive their models as they are usually much much better in the flesh! LOL

    It's one of the reasons I have actually started to try and include a few pictures in 'natural' light and out of the cube as in real life the shading is much more subtle and the digital photography, or at least my ham fisted attempts can make them look a little rough!

    Next batch I will try and lighten them up a little, I do actually take them pretty much up to the level you show using photoshop then I lay a gradient filter over them (coz I think it looks purty and all fancy pants). I will try and hold back from my established tradition next time round, leopard and its spots and such, but I will try!!!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    I think your pics are, for the most part, excellent. Just a touch too dark. And I'm entirely sympathetic to the problems of getting decent shots of them. You can see in my own logs that, even with a lightbox, my results are just all over the place.

    Anyways, greatly looking forward to seeing your Blight! Keep up the good work.

    Damn you're fast! I'm jealous, I still have like another month or so to wait before it gets warm enough that I can even prime my set.

    They look fantastic - kudos!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Finally pulled my finger out and started work on the Rivet board.
    Got together all the materials last week, Balsa wood, thick backing card and some HD poly

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps6d300bb8.jpg

    Got cracking this afternoon and fleshed out the boards to build a generous size battleground. I decided not to go too crazy on the ground detail as from experience putting too much on the floor just results in figures standing at crazy angles, etc. Think I will spray the whole board with stone textured paint. The craft stuff is latex based and I have found as well as creating a nice textured finish it provides quite a forgiving surface when models hit the dirt! Casting some sandbags up as we speak, these will probably be mounted on card runners so they can be positioned as necessary and removed to allow the boards to stack neatly. Its just a matter of cutting all that balsa up and creating the duck boards then. All good clean fun!
    As you can guess, I'm making things up and experimenting as I go along...I work best this way and more importantly having a lot of fun!

    Will update as things progress!

    Sandbags added. Removable in sections so the boards can stack. Next job to start chopping some balsa and creating those duck boards then a splash of paint!

    Burnt a little midnight oil and got the duck boards finished. Quite a relaxing job, hardest part was eating all those lollies fast enough so I could use the sticks!

    Great thing I discovered is the sandbags slot into the trenches when not in use and it all stacks neatly, wish I could say it was by brilliant design but I have to be honest, totally lucked out on that one!

    Hopefully find some spare time in the next couple of weeks to get some paint onto it, can't wait to run a game over it!

    Brilliant game of Rivet Wars Yesterday, friend and me playing the Blight just managed to pull a victory out of the hat with by shooting the Allied carrier Pidgeon before he made it to the enemy HQ with vital orders. Last turn was neck with both sides needing only 1 Victory point to win!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Wave 2 arrived a while ago but it's gonna be a slow process painting things up in between the bazillion other things I am juggling, figured I will grab a handful of random miniatures every now and then so started with some of my favourites, The Red Baron and Reme Funck. TALLY HO!

    Another handful of wave 2 done, trying to keep things even for both sides as I paint these so will probably stick with the box sets
