The UCM faction for Dropzone Commander!
Well, it's been a while since my last post hasn't it? A long while and I feel bad for not having updated the blog in so long. However, I'm pleased with what I have to show you this time around and I hope you like it too.
I've been busy building, magnetising (no less) and painting an army of UCM for the game Dropzone Commander.
This is a continuation of the commission I told you about in my last post but these guys are a completely different proposition to the Shaltari faction, both aesthetically and functionally.
One of the biggest challenges in the completion of this force was the requirement that it should be magnetised. In the game, land vehicles can be 'flown' in to battle by dropship. To simulate this very cinematic visual, some players magnetise each element so they can embark and disembark appropriately and thats exactly what I was asked to do.
The videos on my tutorial page go into more detail but I was successful in magnetising all of the tanks/APC's and dropship's as well as painting each model to a pretty good level.
In the end I'm happy with the result and I'm looking forward to my next project. I hope you like these too and feel free to leave a comment. As ever I enclose more pictures for you below!
Whats next? As well as even more Dropzone Commander goodness in my immediate future, I'll also be re-visiting some larger scales and talking about how I plan to tackle an entry to Euro Militaire in September and Warhammer Fest in October!
