Started work on the Spartans last night. Essentially some green paint, inking and building a unit
out. Better than the color and paint they came with but nothing special. Camera Flash is washing them out a bit but they look pretty good for a simple paint job. I will work on highlights, details, markings, flock etc. I am also painting some different color ones for deathmatch games (Red, blue Green, Pink etc)
Left Front - I created a Spartan with a chain gun so we can use the rule to detach the minigun and make it an objective to destroy or use like in the video game. If one of the regularly armed men get to the emplacement, they can expend a fire action to "unlimber" the weapon or they can go to town with the stationary heavy weapon
Middle front is Rocket Launcher
Right Front is Sniper. The sniper rifle looks awkward when they are holding it so I am leaving them on their back.
Covenant forces will be 10 Elites and 12 Grunts and 2 Hunters. I don't know if I am going to do any Brutes because the mini scale is kinda lame..they should be bigger than the Spartans and Elites...
Not sure if I am going to paint the Covenant weapons...they look pretty cool and stand out. The human weapons are all getting a base black right now and
