Copplestone Castings Bio Chem Troopers

Been a good week on the painting front. Managed to finish off a fair few bits here and there.

First up the Bio Chem Troops. I painted these way back in July 2011! The original first post is here.
At the time I wasn't sure how I was going to base them so left it off for a bit. until nearly 2 and 1/2 years later lol they are finally done.

There was a bit of damage here and there so I touched up the paint jobs and cleaned up some of the highlighting nothing major really. These will be useful for all sorts from zombie hunting to Alien incursions and of course Post Apocalyptic gaming as government troops from a hidden vault.

  4. Very nice! Will they be penalised in any games for not being able to see or hear properly, though :-) ?

    1. Thanks Hugh. I don't think they will the Gas masks are a benefit in certain rulesets like Across the Dead Earth as there are gas grenades and stuff. But I think it makes everything all bit unwieldy having rules for clothing. Especially with the more scantily clad survivor types.

    1. I dunno when you google bio chem suits most military suits tend to be green or a khaki green.

      There was no way I was doing white and yellow can be just as bad to paint.

    2. Yeah for Military suits. But far more choice in Civy street. I think I would be tempted by orange, possibly navy blue for a para military/police response. But for Military your green works very well.

    3. Blue would be nice. But I for what i'll end up using them for military is the way to go :)
