Dropzone Commander Armour section taking shape

Well, I was away in Berlin last week, so no painting got done, but I've also been off this week so amongst other things, I've managed to get some work done on my UCM force for Dropzone Commander.

3 Rapiers (AA Tanks) and 3 Sabres (MBTs)

The 3 Rapiers, for shooting down pesky planes.

And a close up, so you can all spot my flaws.

The 3 Sabres, leading the charge in taking back the Cradle Worlds.

And another close up to spot my flaws.

Must admit, I enjoyed painting them. It doesn't take a massive amount of effort to make them look good, and once I did the test tank, to make sure that I was happy with the scheme and just started mass production of doing 3 at a time, they go reasonably quickly. Well for me.

In that though, it doesn't take long to see an effect, which I think keeps me going on it. One of the other reasons I'm starting to like smaller scale games more and more.

I've got some little scout buggies on the go as well, and shall hopefully have them done soon. Then I've got one more squad of 3 Sabres to do, and then move onto other bits of the army. Getting there.

Mecha Ace out.


  1. Very nicely done, they look really good

  2. I agree, they do. I think you might just have found you're preferred scale for painting Mecha. Can't remember the last time you threw yourself into a new project this way.
