These guys have been on and off my paint table for weeks. I would get stated and just keep getting side tracked. While it took a long time to clean, assemble and pose (real length part) these guys, they were all well worth it. I tried to vary the poses as much as possible by bending and moving the arms and tails as well as a few waste twists. The picture is of only the Assault Warriors and a King and Queen Space Demon, but I have twice this many more to do with the Hammerheads and Infiltrators as well as some more king and Queens. Yes, a LOT of demons. I plan to do all the types in different colors, but not sure yet how these others will be done. These are mainly a red or maroon (some warriors are darker) base with blue details and oily steel teeth with a very dark wash. The King and Queen have been Dullcoated (flat sealer), but not sure yet if I want to do that to all the warriors. Maybe, but the jury is out, so if you have feedback, I would love to hear it. Very simple paint job, but at least they are ready for the battlefield.

The terrain mat is by Allen the terrain guy of theterrainguy.com who did this as a custom mat. It's really a desert mat with some green grass areas added. Allen does great work for a very reasonable price.

Next up for pictures will be my new additions to my Spug forces!

Those are some bad muthas, Jeff! Nice work as always.

Side note-what did you use for the grillwork on top of your buildings? I am guessing they were vacuum-formed meat or vegetable containers; I have thought of doing the same and really like the "roof" effect you have there.

Thanks Jason. The buildings are meat packages from Costco with the addition of a few GZG doors, vents and hatches. The roofs are granny grate from the needle work section of any craft store or Wal-Mart and the metal SciFi parts are taken from a Platformer Construction Set by Pegasus Hobbies. I had to sand down the back side of the platformer pieces where they used to connect together so that I could lay them flat. Easy job to make a few nice buildings. I have a stack of additional meat packages waiting for the same treatment but in different colors.

very nice jeff!

Great use of found materials for the buildings.

The space demons look great. They will go well with the halo spartans you have in your photo collection.

I saved a pic of the spartans because I love what you did for rocky outcrops --(pink or blue foam board--right?)

Nice job they look great. Do you have any of the terrain guys "pin a tree" desert terrain it looks interesting.

Yes, it's blue foam cut with a foam cutter. I then painted the foam with a thick coat of brown latex house paint to protect the foam. Once the house paint dries I added sand and ballast with watered down Wood glue. After the glue dries I spray paint the pieces in a variety of colors and then do some dry brushing with light colors. Works well and is really very fast.

Sorry, but I don't. Been a while since I ordered anything new from Allen, but I have been tempted by the new foam hills and pin trees. Great idea! I have a LOT of Allen's terrain, including six or seven mats and matching hills, so I am a little biased, but I have never bought anything I was not happy with. I absolutely love his mats. One other great thing is that if you ask, he will sell you the same flocking he uses on the mats so you can base your own trees or terrain to match. Really a stand-up guy with some killer talent for making great terrain.

Looking great! Always get a kick out of seeing how my models are painted by the customers.

They are great! I've been thinking about some of the space demons… now i'm convinced.
