Refurbished Robots

Refurbished Robots1

I quickly painted these old Megaminis robots while going through a minimalist “dipping” phase in my toy soldier painting a few years ago.  I painted them primarily for use in Robo Rally games.  With my current interests leaning more towards non-com/civilian miniatures and particularly robots, I decided to rebase these models, add a layer of highlighting to most of them and add a tweak here and there and re-varnish.

The sculpting is a little crude and they wont win prizes for painting, but the figures are undeniably charming.  The colours also have a nice Futurama/Mega City One/Raygun Gothic feel.    I can see these units getting a lot of use in Judge Dredd games both as non-coms and also potentially as part of a Renegade Robot gang.  It was surprisingly satisfying to go back to these fun little models and to bring them up a decent standard for gaming with.

The temptation to field a self aware vacuum cleaner as a Don-bot in the robot mob has lots of appeal.  I particularly like the goofy French Maid-bot that presumably calls him “Sugah” while massaging his… dust bag?  Nozzle?  Power cord?  No matter what I say it sounds smutty.

Dreadball Referee

+++ ENGAGING SASS SUBROUTINE +++

This fem-bot (?) is the referee from the Dreadball sci-fi sports game, displayed alongside a pair of balls.  As every single game of Dreadball played uses the Ref and a ball I figured that they should be the first things painted for the game, with my first team to follow. Continue reading
