Conflict escalates

Another update from the front. The Rivet Wars painting is advancing steadily. This week I focused on the elite troops from Spearhead and finishing the Polsten Quad Gun wich was halfway through.

The Trenchriders, my favourite infantry miniature from this game.

The elite Mountaineers.
For some reason all pics i've seen for Rivet Wars minis feature white Rivets. There were lots of black soldiers dying on the great wars, and they deserve to be represented too!

The Blight Sturmrad.
The Sturmrad was a pain to paint. That driver position makes it very difficult to paint it well without disassembling the miniature.

Kittens and Kriegers

Well, it's been some time. Happy 2016 for all!

After some well deserved holidays, I'm back with tons of new minis on my luggage!

I got my hands on the Rivet Wars Spearhead, 2nd Wave, and Battle of Brighton expansions - plenty of armor on the painting bench right now.

The Blight Landkriegers and the Flakker with the anti-air turret.
I also got my Witch Queen Beatrix waiting for me in Barcelona when I arrived. It's such a beautiful mini! I decided to step away from the classical black and went for pale purple, based on Touhou's witch librarian Patchouli Knowledge.

The bat is most fitting for a Patchouli wannabe

Back to Rivet Wars, I also painted my Allied Boss tanks. I might retouch them a bit though, I think i overdid the lightning effects on some parts.

Obviously the blight had to get their Landkriegers done to compete in a good ol' mech boxing showdown on the trenches.

The flakker and the allied anti-air were next, but the allied equivalent is still on the bench. Maybe I can show it on the next update.

My Ninja All-Stars kickstarter hasn't showed up yet so I still have plenty of time to paint rivets it seems...
