I finally made up my mind of how to handle leaders. I used square metal bases from Product for Wargamers, placed MDF hexagonal and octagonal bases from Warbases on them, and traced their outline. With my Proxxon tool and a cutting wheel, I cut away from the square base according to the marking.

  • Junior leaders will be mounted on the hexagonal bases.
  • Senior leaders will be mounted on the octagonal bases.

Leaders have Command Initiative in Chain of Command, which will drop when they get wounded. For that purpose I also ordered dice holder cells and 7mm dice. The cell will be at the back of the base of leaders, and show their current command initiative.

Although I was at home since beginning of March due to the Corona Pandemic (I was lucky enough, my job can be done 99% from home office) and could have spent time on painting, I somehow was in a painting burn out.

Whatever, I restarted painting, working on the Polish Infantry. Here is the latest batch painted:

This is the overall status, two full sections done.


[Shadowrun]
Road Outlaws

Bases painted.


[Shadowrun]
Federal Citizens

The models are done. For the clothes I used Vallejo Game Inks instead of solid colors, in an attempt to give them a cyberpunk-ish appearance.

Today I painted the bases.


[Tools]
Magnetic Holder

To be able to hold small parts for airbrushing, I built these holders. They are meant to be used for magnetised arms etc, to be able to airbrush them without touching. I built a couple in two different heights.


[Shadowrun]
Seattle Fire Fighters

The firefighters are done. I used pictures of today's american firefighters to get an orientation on the colors of the suits; I am quite pleased with the outcome, although I think they should have been a bit more on the brown side - but after all these are the Seattle Firefighters of the 2050's.

The Plutowny and Kapral got their rank insignia painted on the shoulders.

All the models painted so far.

As I keep experiencing white spots (that is why I usually undercoat black), I gave the next batch of models a wash of Choclate Brown before starting to paint them.
