Skylar Across the Dead Earth (Official Release version)

Finally have proper internet back yay! It came back on Monday lunchtime and so have had a catch up. Anyway finished off the Officially released version of Skylar. Another great looking mini and now a much nicer size. Stuck to a simple blue and green scheme. I haven't modified this one at all apart from adding a more prominent blade edge.

All that's left from the kickstarter is to paint up is the Mercenary Sniper Crimson.

I also got a game report to write up from Saturday night but I will get it done sometime this week for this Sundays post. Not done a lot this week painting wise. I have started plenty of miniatures but have nothing nowhere near being finished yet.






The Version 1 Sculpt and Version 2. I like both just the first is that  little bit taller.

  1. Lovely subtle colours as ever. That's actually quite a size difference imho. Were any of the other minis re-sculpted this way? Nothing wrong with either, but I think the second fits in better with your excellent looking band :-)

  4. Nice work dude!
    They're both pretty cool, very hard to choose.
    I think I prefer the shorter one, on the basis of her cleavage.

  5. Excellent work Simon and great to see the two versions side by side like that. I remember you mentioning their decision to change the sculpt during the production stage, they definitely made the right move updating the sculpt.

  10. Great work Brummie! I have to admit the older version looks better to me, the size would be bothering me to no end though, redoing it was a great decision!

  11. They're both nice. I wonder why the re-sculpt was thought necessary?

    1. Thanks yes they both are . Its just that the original out scales the rest of the gang she comes with.

  13. Had first game of Dead Earth, in space, with a Klingon gang coming to blows with a romulan team in a stricken Federation science ship - great fun - the cards causing unpredictable mayhem. Great game.

  15. Can't chose which one is nicer - you painted them both up fabulously - and they are both nice sculpts. Possibly the second one is a bit more..er healthy ;)!
