This weekend saw the last of my Dropzone Commander Wagons complete. One of the challenges I always have with Resistance models is the varied and random color schemes I feel like they should have. Since I’ve always viewed them as scavengers, having a cohesive and consistent color scheme never made sense except in rare cases. I think that is probably part of the “fun” of the faction as well but when I just want to burn through some units mindlessly, it can be annoying.

With my first successful casting of the weapon mount for Dropzone Commander’s Wagon units, I went and finished up the other two mounts. After they dried and cured, I cutoff the excess green stuff and shaved them down to size.
While the iphone image quality leaves a lot to be desired, you can tell the casts are a bit softer than the original piece up top. I shouldn’t matter as they’ll be hidden under the weapon rack itself and, at 10mm, it will hardly be noticeable.
I recently picked up a set of Dropzone Commander Storm/Thunder Wagons. For every other “dual” kit Dropzone has, these are great packs as you get the option for two unit types and if you magnetize, you’ll be able to field either option. I’ve done this with my Hannibal/Mehmed tanks and my Cyclone/Typhoon helicopters. When I went to open my Storm/Thunder wagons though, I found an issue.
Finishing up the Dropzone Commander Underground Hangar took a little longer than expected. The biggest issue was painting up the closed baffles for the hangar opening. I struggled a couple of times until I found a simple way to just get it down.
With my 80’s Transformers fix out of the way for Dropzone, I turn to another fixture from my youth: He-Man. I was trying to decide a color scheme for my Rakkon Krell command walker and thought maybe I could try out a little Battle Cat theme. I really enjoyed painting up my Walking Dead All Out War tiger so hopefully this wouldn’t be too difficult.
