Painted these 3 Judoon last night; the helmeted pair are joining the Bretonia 4 as Troopers, the other is going to turn traitor and end up as a mark in Dead or Alive.

Bit rushed with the brush so the odd mistake and I'm not overly fond of how I based them (had a plan - failed miserably).

However, I'm wanting to get some games in and have a new fantasy project in my head for the painting table, so any rebasing and retouching will happen at some future point.

This was originally my first foray into Quarantine 37 but I wasn't really feeling it with this crew; have a couple of ideas for the crew I really want - this lot can always be more bad guys.

Lovely work all around.  What's the source of this ship?

It started life as a Thunderbird toy I got for a few quid, cut off the tail fin, added some parts from some toy plastic army man vehicles and a McFlurry spoon and a bit of craft paint.

Thanks for the tutorial!

Now to find a cheap Thunderbird in the US....  lol

Just thin card cut into strips.

Good luck with your search. I've just had a quick look on ebay uk and they're still less than 10 to buy here - hopefully you'll get something over there as cheap.

So as I, and I assume, others often do I had a bit of a change of direction with this project.

Decided that I really liked the Wargames Atlantic Einherjar and wanted a full crew of them so painted a few more last week to give my starting crew.

I've also got a couple of sprues for building other crew as required by deaths and upgrades as I solo my way through the galaxy.

Here they are, ready to transfer to their ship, The Bedriften.

Those look great.
I intended to pass those figures up for being out of scale with my squats but seeing them here maybe it's worth a purchase just to make a crew.
