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.
