Diorama - Painting the Minis II

So more work on the minis. The colors are all blocked in at this point with some of the shading and highlighting done. Moving forward with some deeper shadows, more lining and some higher highlights to make things start to pop. I also took a look at the aliens I'll be using and decided they weren't cleaned up well enough so I'm taking the steel wool to them to make sure they really are ready for paint.

Here I have straighten then sword and its ready for a new coat of primer

The Aliens, I found some molds lines and rough spots on these guys so it was back to the steel wool treatment for them.


  1. nice figures ! excellent painting work !
    the aliens look good too ...

  2. There is still a lot of work to do on the British but I'm definitely looking forward to getting started on the aliens.
