Agis AvP The Hunt begins minis
« on: June 12, 2016, 01:02:29 PM »
Prodos Games ill fated AvP “Alien vs Predator - The Hunt Begins” Kickstarter finally delivers the pledges.


I pledged and got really frustrated over the years, at some moments I was really angry. But in the end Prodos delivered a superb product. Incredible well proportioned minis in a very user friendly resin (glues like a charm with super glue, nearly indestructible and still keeps the shape).
Even the game rules makes a good impression, not to mention the game components! So after receiving the game 3 days ago I started with some Alien stalkers to try some speed painting techniques, both minis are finished under 25 Mins. Priming, dry brushing and inking, after that a glossy varnish - done.
 
The bases are 30mm MDF since I still really DISLIKE all round lipped bases...
;)

More to come...

And as always more pics on my site: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/avp.html
cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - http://www.adpublishing.de

Not sure if this is funny meant or serious...
???
Anyway, let me explain. Normally I use the bases provided, but since I do not like the round lipped ones (too difficult to hold for me) I use a flat MDF base od equal diameter.

I'd say it was in agreement. I'm not fond of those enormous bases myself. Makes the minis look like they're running an assault course with tractor tyres. :D

Cracking minis! Really good looking effect from that speed-painting. Great minis on nicely-sized bases, too. ;)

Both are very good painted, but I like the black one a little bit more. I think brown is not as alien as it should be.

Both great but I'd agree that the black one is the more 'ckassic' look. Very nice work, especially for the time.

I think after painting so much Terminators Agis became the Paintinator 😉

Thanks,

the skinny tone was dead simple.
I primed it with FoW British Armour (Desert), after that just a hint of white primer on top.
Then a Citadel Reikland Fleshshade and some Agrax Earthshade here and there.
After drying a very light drybrush in white, then Enamel glossy clear.

Done.

Black one even simpler, black primer, boltgun brushwork, nuln oil wash, very light drybrush in silver, glossy varnish.

Aliens is my favourite film of all time and you, sir, have done those fantastic models justice with amazing paint jobs! :o The black is my favourite of the two. I think the lighter toned one is more Alien 3?

It may be time to check out if my FLGS has got this game. Always wanted to game Colonial Marines vs Xenomorphs.

Added to that, I think Aliens will be a fantastic stand-in for T'lekkan in God of Battles...  :)

They look excellent - definitely prefer the original colour.
