Drop Zone Commander Scourge test peices

Well after quite a bit of indecisiveness I decided to take the plunge and pick up some scourge for drop zone after my initial game with Lee the other month,

I was lucky enough to get some on auction as the same seller had them going for 10% discount which is the norm if you look at wayland and the like.

I couldn't decide how to paint the bad man alien invaders so I showed Nadine (the better half) a page full of painted scourge models in the rule book and She pointed at the one that looked "nice" or in her words "that looks like a beetle that's good"

So after a bit of messing about I did these as trial pieces...

So 2 APC's can carry three stands of guys and that's ya lot!  The allocated drop ship is still WIP....

Two fast mover interceptors, no idea rules wise if these are any good, but I liked the look of them so painted these as well,

for those interested in the "recipe"

Spray black
Heavy dry brush Necron Compound
wash with Carroburg Crimson
Airbrush the lines with model air azul blue
really light dry brush of necron compound
Brassy brass highlighted then washed with ogran flesh for the "brassy bits"
Blood red & a bit of orange for the sensors and gloss varnish for the Len's look

Over all the bit that I'm chuffed with is the airbrush bit, apart from the king tiger I did for the demo table last month this was my first real solo flight with out Coop's giving me tips,

I've still quite a lot to learn with regards to the mixture and the PSI pressure but a 2:1 mix and 15/20 PSI seems to work quite well so far,

Once all the scourge are sorted then I'm more than likely gonna be packing up all me gaming stuff ready for a house move in the next 4ish weeks so blog updates will be sparse and the pledge is in a rather healthy state but the purchase of more models is going to be slim as I'll be spending my dough on boring real life stuff!


  1. They look great fella, I'm glad my tips helped

    1. cheers man, the amount you can get done is quite scarey with a airbrush, once I get the unwashed masses in for BGK should be a right laugh!

  2. Looking good Ant. I look forward to seeing a battle report. DZC is a game I would like to play but realistically, never well due to other model commitments.

    1. I've a game in a couple of weeks I'll get plently of pics and pop something up for ya, I know what you mean about getting round to play, I need to retire to get my geek on!!

  3. looking good, we must get a game soon, come visit i have a spare room :) and pub around the corner :D

    1. sounds like a plan Evil, in March I go onto summer rota so get 4 days off on the bounce, I'll see if I can convince Mr Lee as well ;)
