I just got a bunch of the Eureka Boilersuit Apes, and the ones in space suits. Really nice figures. Since both my wife and I are oil field brats, I decided on bright coveralls. The Eureka guns are so nice that I tried something different on them. I painted them Ceramcoat Charcoal and washed them with undiluted P3 armor wash. All figures were primed grey, block painted in base colors, and then given a brown wash followed by a thin black wash. The faces were painted Reaper Pro Paint Ruddy Flesh, and washed with old GW Flesh Wash. I suspect that P3 Flesh Wash would do as good a job. The eyes were painted a very pale yellow, and given black pupils. As always, click on the picture for a larger one.
Since I just finished reading "The Seige of Leningrad", they were all given Russian names.
I especially like the boss figure, so he's Leonid!
I looked at both US and Soviet spacesuits, and decided 5 figures with white suites would just be too boring to paint, so I harkened back to the old science fiction movie, "Destination: Moon", and used it for inspiration.
And, of course, I refound my Reaper figure of Alice. I painted her as one of the stills on Google. I am dreaming of replacing Carol Lee in the Two-Hour Wargames Risks & Rewards with Alice. Let's see, Rep 6, Ambidextrous, Sidewalk Demon, has the Razor bullet-avoiding move, 2 BA pistols, and 2 khukri, which the axe stats can be used for.
