Now Hiring Private Security........

I just managed to knock out some of these minis from GZG- I've had them for a while, painted them in a generic blue 'Police' colour, given them a quick bath in nail varnish remover, and had another go. They are going to see duty as Security for some faceless conglomerate like a mining company or similar.


I seem to be using a lot of greens at the moment- different ones admittedly. Still, I quite like the idea of adding GW's 'Bad Moon Yellow' to the mix, rather than just adding white and washing it all out a bit. I suppose it has come out a little fluorescent, but at least there is contrast!

    1. Many thanks Keith! It wasn't difficult, honestly! GW snot Green base, washed with Strong Tone, picked out again with the base colour, and highlighted with base plus Bad Moon yellow!

  4. Good looking corporate security fodder ;). Why oh why doesn't GZG have painted minis on their store page? If I had seen these guys painted up like this I probably would have snatched a pack when I placed my last order with them.

  5. Hey Mike, thank you kindly! Yes, I agree, Jon's stuff looks totally different with a lick of paint, and when I've seen his minis on other people's blogs, they really leap out at you. I'm sure there is a good reason for having unpainted stuff on his website store- he's such a good guy- probably time, or finding the right person to do a professional job that doesn't cost the earth! I don't know if you follow a blog called 'Mini Metal Mayhem', but Paul has a lot of GZG minis painted up, in fact, a number of his figures are the painted ones on the GZG site. Best wishes.
