A Blast from the Past!


When Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian offered me the project for the Necrovores, I jumped at the chance!. I have liked these figures from when they first came out, but never got a chance to buy more than three.

Paints Used

Here is a list of the paints and sprays I used for these figures, in no particular order:

First Things First

After a coat of white primer, I let them sit over night. The next day, they got a complete wash of Chestnut Wash. Again, just to be sure, they were left to dry completely for a day.

Primed and inked
It drives me nuts when a fig looks and feels dry, but the second I try and drybrush it, some little wet spot smears everything. Rrrrr!

So on Day Three, they all got a liberal drybrushing of Ivory. I went with an overall coat of Ivory because I'm tired of seeing black and dark-metallic cyborgs. Also, with all the new materials we use for armor and building materials, I decided that these aliens use bone-white ceramic armor along with the scavenged humanoid bones. I'm also trying to get away from the classic good = light and bad = black schemes - this ain't a Western, don'tcha know!
