This is my third entry for the miniature painting contest at I'm rather happy with the results.

A Chameleon. The black shoulder plate unwisely indicates this is my army commander. But thanks to Stealth (5), no one will get to shoot at him.

A second Chameleon, with its DPG upgraded to a LBZK. A nice small survivable Gear with some extra bite.

Panther (New Shots)

I've added a new layer of varnish from a different can (both matte, strangely) to my Panthers and I've been able to get rid of that weird gloss. Yay!

These guy are not going to make it into the Squad contest ( I can't put them in a legal Squad yet), but here they are anyway.

Towards a complete OPSEC Cadre, Part 1

I've been working on my OPSEC Cadre for the HG squad painting contest.

One of the Snake Eye Black Mamba is done already. I have two Chameleons (one of them with a stinging surprise) that are coming along nicely.

So here is the second SE Black Mamba. First, with base colors and blacklining done. I want this one to look really crisp:
Second here is the same mini with the edge highlights done. I'm much happier with this one than with the first one, where there was much more streaking.
But it's not always easy to paint when you have to keep fighting off intruders who like the smell of paint.
