Ok folks, dig in, cause we're going to chat about Dropzone Commander for a few posts. Today, I'm going to show some pics of my final starter box, the Zel'Naga (PHR).
First, I have to give credit to Carabus from the Hot-LZ forums for sparking the idea for the painting scheme. Now, he did a far better job of executing it on his PHR, but I really couldn't be bothered to put TOO much effort into this starter box that will only see the rough and tough treatment of a demo table.
These were painted using a mask from MaskedFX, available here (well not really, because they are sold out). I purchased three pages of the digi camo masks in 15mm, and only used half of one page for this starter box, to give you an idea of how much you need. The masks plus my trusty sidekick made the scheme remarkably easy.
Without further ado, here's some pictures of the PHR starter box. Next post we'll have some group shots of all the starter boxes, overviews of the armies and fluff, and then move to some post-starter box acquisitions!
|Neptune Medium Dropships|
|The Neptune carries two Juno APCs or two walkers.|
|Two squads of Immortals (PHR's basic grunt) and their Juno A1 APCs.|
|The Immortals are fairly resilient troops to make up for their smaller squad size. The APC even has a moderate anti-tank gun.|
|Phobos Battle Walkers|
|Phobos keep the skies clear of enemy dropships and aircraft|
|Ares Battle Walkers|
|The most common PHR walker, armed with an anti-tank railgun.|
