Store Addition: SPELLCROW

We recently have decided to bring in some Spellcrow. If you are not sure what Spellcrow is; have a look here

I have had an eye on Spellcrow for quite a while. They started just doing conversion bits but have not moved to making their own IP which is great.

Spellcrow have terrain and miniatures, a move to expand from their conversion bits base.

There isn’t such a huge miniature mod culture in Malaysia but these are perfect for the few who do it almost religiously.

From orc head variants to the space soldiers from the different evil space gods you could find something for the converting enthusiast.

Repaint – Dreadball Corporation

Dreadball is a game from Mantic Games., I backed the Kickstarter and was rewarded with a box and and a few extras. I have always had a soft spot for sports games, perhaps ts because of the fun I had with Blood Bowl when I was younger.

So inside the box I got a few teams and I decided to paint the Corporation team first. I went for a red and white scheme but I think my biggest mistake was using the dip. This is because all the white parts of the figure turned into brown and while this works for a lot of figures did not look good for a futuristic sports game.

So once the team was done, I left it in my display shelf and tried my best not to look at it.

A year or so later, I really wanted to play Dreadball and decided to repaint my team.

Repainting your team is a great way to rekindle an interest in the game. I had an idea of what I wanted the new team to look like so this made the impetus a little more easier to happen.

I did not want to strip the figures as this would take a while and probably kill my momentum moving forward. I lined them up and gave them all a coat of Matt White. I don’t recommend doing this especially when you have already dipped a figure as the matt finish does not look so good.

The figure was then given a Blue Wash diluted 80/20 with water to pick out the details.

You could probably stop here and play, they looked good enough with a blue glow.

But I spent the next hour or so putting in some Matt White Highlights and when then was done working the shadows with pure Blue Wash.
