Afterlife: 'Shards of Liberty' Kickstarter...

...latest update from Joel: Pledge here. I'm happy to include mechs (and even the APC if it works out) and discuss colour schemes with the winners!

"Morning All,
Your chance to WIN one of five miniatures painted by Dwartist!
I am sure you have all seen the beautiful paint work on our miniatures done by Dwartist, a big fan of our miniatures, a backer of this project, and an amazing painter!
Yesterday he made a very special "money cant buy it" offer to help get this KS project funded.
After the KS ends, all backers who have pledged £100 or more will be entered into a draw to win one of five chances to have a miniature from their pledge painted by Dwartist! 
At the moment, that means pledgers over £100 have a 1 in 28 chance of winning this amazing prize, which is pretty great odds!
Further details - Choose a regular infantry sized figure from your pledge. It must be a military model rather than a civilian. I'm sure Dwartist will try to paint your preferred colour scheme, but he reserves the right to paint it however he likes and will only paint in his regular "style".
We reserve the right to amend or add to these conditions.

WIP: Unity Council Crane War-Droid...

...although the dull, grey metal has been painted working up from a medium base to the lightest highlight on the top of edges as I would normally do (shading to be added) I painted the sand coloured armour in a different manner. Each of the separate panels has been highlighted working towards the centre and leaving the edges in the medium base shade. Each layer of the very diluted paint has been applied by  brushing vertically in very thin stripes and so that the underlying colour shows through creating the appearance of (hopefully) a grimy, worn surface with paint wearing off the leading edges.

WIP: Ellenor Renard...

While waiting...

...for the 'Shards of Liberty' miniatures to dry after washing to remove any mold release residue I did a little more work on one of the Afterlife 'Vanguard' troopers - Republic Raider Exo-Mech - for the dio(s) I'm planning.

"These are the 'droids we're looking for!"... promised pics of several miniatures from Anvil Industry's Afterlife: Shards of Liberty Kickstarter. It must be stated right away that these miniatures are prototypes and not the final product so, yes, there may be a few flaws (actually Joel I didn't find anything major that couldn't be sorted very quickly) and you may be able to spot a few print lines but I'm confidant that when the miniatures are released to the backers they'll be nigh on perfect.
I'm going to start with the war-droids as these are absolute stunners. Built largely on the chassis of the Unity Council 'Ajax' exo-mech the miniatures arrived with separate 'arm's and 'head' so the possibility of further weapon options and a duifferent sensor array is possible in the future.

Next is Special Operative Ellenor Renard the Kickstarter exlusive miniature

...and finally for this post Lena Petrova Electronic specialist (not great photos these - in the front view you can't see the very detailed implants 'cap' she is wearing)

I have a two more female civilians to show you but haven't had time to put them together yet. Hopefully tomorrow... meantime pop over to the KS and pledge!
