I had some more time so I decided to finish up the rest of the Dropzone Commander Monorail scenery pack. I decided to keep it in the muted tones I found in a recolored vintage image of art deco trains from the early twentieth century. This meant keeping the gunmetal primer as a base and customizing my red into a dark mauve.

With Test of Honour Week over, I started up a project I’ve been waiting on for a while now. In a bit of ironic coincidence, we took the weekend to go up to the Georgetown Loop and ride their old steam train. I also just happened to pick up the Dropzone Commander Monorail scenery kit. I usually don’t jump into a project as soon as I pick up the product but the forces seemed in alignment so I pushed forward.
The week is winding down but I have a few final things that were completed just under the wire. The first is one of my first attempts at scatter terrain. I don’t do a lot of this as I usually buy a scenery piece and paint it up. This time I wanted to have some bamboo-based terrain and that isn’t easy to outright buy so I had to make my own.
Having recovered from my fuzzy primer incident, I went back to my Test of Honour Ninja figures to finish them up. I decided to take pictures of the progress as I went along, mainly to see how things were coming out and what was actually effective for my standard table-top quality style. I started first with the ninja hero.
Batman The Animated Series was a staple cartoon that I watched as a kid and when I first got into Knight Model’s Batman Miniature Game, I was excited to see that they had some Animated Series figures. Unfortunately, they only had a handful of minis and with the game being heavily skirmish-based, you couldn’t make much of a team out of their offerings. The minis were great but they needed more of it.
