I remember owning these back in the days of the foam board. Happy days. Great work as always!
I picked up a copy of BB a few years back out of sheer nostalgia. The foam 'astrogranite' pitch was intact and hadn't been messed with either. Never played it though!
Don't play that version, it was no where near as good as the later one, but the board is great and the models have that great 80's feel!
If I had the time I'd love to fix up the two plastic teams. They're a bit dated looking but I'm sure they'd paint up nice enough. I also thought of doing a few minor conversions to differentiate between the player positions (like the metal versions do). Unless I win the lottery though I just haven't got the time :(
The eternal battle between available funds and available time. One day we might end up with both. I am now heading back to painting my Terminators.The plastics from the box set are full of character, I still have fond memories of the coloured rings round the bases, I painted my other teams with those colours round the bases for those positions. Good times!
Hated those termies back in the day. It was really disappointing opening the box and finding them inside rather than models like those in the promo ad. These days I'd love to paint up a squad of them.
The dryad is absolutely amazing. Would you mind sharing the colors you used for this model?
The light wood had a base coat of Vallejo Extra Opaque Heavy Brown and then I added VGC Bonewhite and then a bit of white for the highlighting.The dark wood had a base of VMC German Camo Black Brown, I added some VMC Burnt Umber then (didn't quite highlight all the way up to pure Umber though), then added VGC Khaki and finally a bit of white added for the sharp edges.The 'hair' had a base of VGC Yellow Olive and was highlighted up with VGC Goblin Green and then VGC Dead Flesh and finally with a bit of white added for the tips.Hope that helps. :)
Help appreciated indeed :)
