April. I had this pending since April. I'd try to make up an excuse, but let's face it, there is none. My mate got the Rivet Wars game and we managed to play a game back in April. Virtually a year later I finally have come to paint the minis. Is 'familiarity breeds contempt' the phrase for this? OK, man, I owe you some beers!!
If you remember the game (if you don't, just click the link above), Rivet Wars is some kind of low Weird War I in an almost chibi aesthetics -or maybe I should say 8bit better? The starter pack my mate got on the Kickstarter covers the Eastern Front, so we have Allies and the Blight here: Today let me show the former. First of all, the reliable infantry:
|I tried to make everyone different!|
The infantry special character is the M2 'Wolverine' armour:
|Oh, c'mon, it was asking for it!|
Though I've seen some pics on the internet as a full 'Capt'n America' in blue, I opted for the green armour, implying it's only a prototype that will not be fully developed until some years later ;)
The cavalry special character is Captain Parman:
|War Horse. Not the Spielberg one|
Ugh. I can't but notice that these pics look way too plain. In the flesh, greens are quite more dull and subtle, and the same goes for browns. Damn...
Anyway, the artillery is made up of these two pieces:
|Boom shaka shaka boom boom|
We also have the rocketcycles:
|Vroom vrooom, weeee!|
Finally, here we have the MT-1 'Ostrich':
|Option 1, the gunnery cockpit|
|Option 2, General Patson!|
These bobbleheads are sweet to paint, a refreshing choice among all the grimdark stuff I've been doing lately. The other side, the blight, is almost ready and I hope I'll be able to show the minis quite soon...
