Xiticix Nexus

Xiticix Nexus

I finished painting this beauty a couple of days ago but forgot to post some pictures. Again this was bought at Salute 2016 with the intention of using it for a Rifts adventure that I am going to run soon.

I'm happy with the weird alien look and colour of the model. I might add some more detail at a later date.

4ground telecoms building

I mentioned in a previous post that I had bought some MDF, prepainted buildings from Salute this year. In total I bought 2 small medieval/fantasy houses, a watchtower and a telecoms tower. Well I've finally got around to building the telecoms tower. 

Attached are some pictures, I've spent about 4 hours in total to get it built to the current state. 

I'm a big fan of these products from 4ground, pre-painted, easy to assemble and the instructions are really easy to follow. The fact that the MDF spru's are all colour co-ordinated and have codes that differentiate each part really makes these easy to build.

With the use of some PVA glue, clothes pegs and rubber bands you can easily put these together in a couple of nights. I think I would have has this kit finished tonight but I had to catch up on Game of Thrones so I left the rest of this build for another day, but once it's complete I will post pictures of the finished building.

Rifts - Xiticix.
Shown below are some new pictures of the Xiticix army that I have been working on for the last couple of weeks.

I am going to be using these in a Rifts adventure that I am planning on running at some point soon. The models were purchased from eBay but I have no idea what gaming system they come from, but they are very cool.

I models all arrived off the sprue and with no bases, so they had to be assembled and then painted. I used a black spray paint to base coat them, then once that was dry I sprayed them all again with a light grey paint but at a distance of about 20cm. 

This was so that the models received a light spray of colour, once the coat of grey dried I then sprayed them all again but this time with a ivory paint and again at the distance of about 20cm. 

Once the paint dried I then coated them all in Army Painter quick shade and finally I added the sand effect base.

I'm very happy with the way that they look.
