I finished painting the figures from the Star Wars Monopoly set.
The Jedi figures were not quite as cool as the Sith figures, but were nice enough.
From the prequel, we have Yoda and young Obi-wan. Yoda is the best of the figures, with crazy good animation.
The downside of these cast metal figures is that there is no way to easily get rid of mold lines (above: Yoda's head and right side of base). Meh.
From the original trilogy, Luke is worst of the Jedi figures, with badly defined arms. Not sure why they thought that sail barge Leia was their best bet. Hoth or Death Star or Bespin Leia would have been better. Really, any Leia would have been better.
Up next: Zeds (probably toxic zombies and then some prison guards). I'v also ordered from Clone Wars Monopoly figures to see what they are like.
For a change of pace, I opened up the Zombicide prison expansion I bought years ago and hauled out some Zeds. The box has the usual assortment and regulars, runners, fatties and toxic zombies.
I broke the regulars into two groups (cops and robbers) to mix up the batch and then started with the prisoners. These 8 are the first half of that lot.
My plan was to see how little I could do and still get a passable result. So spray prime grey, drybrush lighter grey, block paint orange (and a bit of white), wash, splatter with blood, and seal. For literally the most half-assed painting you can imagine, they turned out pretty good!
I have a second batch of prisoners underway. But before them, I'm going to paint some Star Wars monopoly tokens I bought. Then the Zeds. Then maybe some toxic Zeds?
Since summer has arrived and the garden, my kayak and my bike all call, I'm going to slow the rate of posts to once per week until the autumn.
