Photo Update 2

So that's all my Keizai Waza photos updated, now onto updating my KemVar photos!
Yeah... using the MERCS Recon: Assassination Protocol box as a backdrop for miniature photography was a bad idea!

I'm still working through basing my GCC, so hopefully I'll be able to snap some photos of the completed faction this weekend - stay tuned!

It's been slow progress painting through the rest of my GCC faction, but here's a quick and dirty photo of the last five models!
The Judge, Tribunal and Heavy models in the back row are my favorite of the faction, so I saved painting them up until last!

I'm planning on finishing the basing this week, and taking individual model photos over the weekend - stay tuned!

Over the past week I've been painting through my GCC, so I thought I'd share a WIP progress shot I snapped over the weekend. I'm planning to do the basing for the whole faction in one hobby session once all the models are painted.
Though looking at this photo now, the colour scheme would probably benefit from some additional highlights.

While I get my GCC finished, I'm going to continue throwing up the new photos of my Keizai Waza though, so stay tuned!

[Keizai Waza] Daimyo 2.0

Sync out.

Photo Update

After my recent hiatus, I took a look through my blog, and found that I could no longer stand the 'quick & dirty' photos I took of my Keizai Waza and KemVar models.

Using the MERCS Recon: Assassination Protocol box for the background was a bad decision, because the orange of the Keizai Waza and the green of the KemVar look 'washed out' against the brown background colour.

So I took some new photos of my Keizai Waza models against a background that better shows their 'true colour' (the colour I see when holding the models in my hand), and thought I'd throw up them up on my blog for good measure.

Here's a comparison of the original photos versus the improved photos:

These are photos of the exact same model, but as you can see the orange looks totally different in each picture! So I'll try and post a new photo update each day, as I work through my GCC models.

And I'm Back.. Again!

After yet another MERCS hobby hiatus, roughly 5 months this time, I'm back to painting through some MERCS models.
I'm hoping to complete another two MERCS factions during this little painting binge, which will bring me up to completing 6 out of the 12 current MERCS factions available.
I'm not setting myself any specific painting goals, so stay tuned for some sporadic updates - the next faction on my work desk is the GCC - Global Corporate Courts.

Checking the Megacon Games MERCS website for any updates, I found a link to the photos of the Megacon Games house models, which hobbyists may wish to reference for their own painting.
I'll throw them up on this blog (click the photos to enlarge), but you can also download them here.

I also found some cool new MERCS 2.0 photos that have made it onto the Megacon Games website:
