I managed to drag myself away from the computer and do some painting, aided by my paint order having arrived. Didn't realize I'd fluffed the first attempt at taking this focus stack until after processing the stack – that'll teach me I guess.
Still, looking on the positive side, I managed to put some paint down on my models, which has to count for something.
These are Heavy Gear Utopian & Eden faction Golems, which are described on the packaging as heavy augmented infantry. I'm using these models, with small modifications made to them, to represent the Chinese all terrain suits from my novel Bad Dog. I have another eight of them to assemble to make up a platoon, but I'm thinking have I got the selection of loadouts right? I'm tempted to add an extra heavy gunner (second figure on the right) to each squad so as to have two per squad rather than one.
Still some more shading to do before I can do the fiddly stuff like decals etc, but one step closer to completion, and it was nice to remember how much I enjoy painting.
