Heroes of Olympus (Shirow's Olympus, that is....)
« on: November 25, 2011, 08:19:30 AM »
Had these sat in my cupboard for quite a while, I finally got around to painting them:



Good old Deunan and Briareos.



Nice figures, fun to paint, though a bit on the small side by current standards.
I've tried to combine their various "editions" through the years in their paint scheme. So, for example, Deunan is dressed in the darker colours of the recent (2004+) animes. But with the blue fatigues she has always worn, just darkened to match the armour.
Briareos is still grey, but with the metallic sheen of his more recent versions. Brown clothes to add some warmth to him, and to reference his old (1988-) fatiques and more recent leathers.

They're from Ground Zero Games.
They used to have a Bubblegum Crisis range as well, but I can't find it on their site anymore.

Nicely done. :D

Always had a soft spot for these. GZG have some real gems amongst the 25mm ranges. Shame the BGC stuff is no longer available. I used to have some of the AD Police and Boomers and they were lovely figures.

Very nice, although they're 25mm and it's difficult finding stuff that fits, I like the GZG stuff, especially when they're nicely painted.
Pity about the BGC, but there are the Mobile suit girls, that could be a good basis for conversions:

I think you can ask for the BGC figures, how I got mine anyhow.

That's handy to know, thanks! May give that a go. :)
