Avatar Aang

I finally got my Hasslefree fig which came in on back order and I painted him up as Avatar Aang. I don't know how clearly you can see the psuedo-kanji on the base but he has all the nations on his. I am putting together models that look similar to the characters on the show and have a decent amount I will be ordering from Reaper miniatures.

I plan on writing up some simple rules to go with the miniatures but don't know how long that will take me. The flash washed out the details a bit but he has the Air Nomad tattoos and is wearing a yellow sash and orange pants, with brown boots. This was an easy paint job and hope the rest will be the same. Without further a do here is everyone's favorite Avatar.

Cantina built for Cerro Grande

Just finished my third adobe structure, and this time it is Rosa's Cantina y Mercado (Bar & Store). I'm happy how it turned out as I tried something new. For the roof I took one part of a cardboard box and soaked it till the backing was saturated. Once it was like this I pealed on of the layers off and revealed the corrugated side. I was going to do this to both sides but found it would not work as it simply deformed the remaining corrugation so it lost it's form. I wanted to cut it into strips and layer it but I think it looks ok as is.

I also tried a slightly different technique with the wooden doors and brick work by adding a layer of brown ink on top to try and bring out the grain/bricks.

I will be making a smaller Casita to go into the Texican side of town.

More Capitol Troops

Just finished a few more Capitol Troops for my growing army. These are the Martian Banshees. I did them in the same scheme as they are in the Warzone Book. They were fairl easy to paint up and I needed a brake from all the Chronopia figures I had been painting.
