Ride Captain Ride..

 Last night I worked more on these guys and the Reapers pretty much done. Honestly I've spent way too much time on the Reapers, I should have just got all new ones and went that route haha.. with them being so old some of the molds must have been blah ..  but anyway.. The Jetbike riders are getting pretty close and I'll be happy to have all these dudes done. It's a ton of work. I'll tell you one thing .. you get you painting money worth at least. I think they are coming along nicely and are pretty much as done as I can get them before putting them on the bikes. Once they are seated I'll be added some details but need to see where the light is going to hit and what squad they will end up in. And arms .. some of them are armless at the moment. Fitting them and gluing the arms to remove again was too much of a pain. So I'll glue them on .. attach their arms and then finish the painting.
 As you can see there are a lot of them. This large group pic was from before I got the bone color done on their shoulders and face mask. I keep thinking I can move on then realize something I don't like and then waste a ton of time fixing it.. grumble..  I'm still going back and forth as to were I am on time .. a week and a day of working time left.. and this weekend I have to go in to work for maintenance. That stinks.
 A little work on the Seers and Locks, I need to get their bags colored and some of the fine details added.
 I sprayed the weapons in their hands.. I was originally thinking of mixing up the colors but then I realized I liked the purple look and it goes with the color scheme so all good.
And the other arms..  whoooo  exciting .. .

I wanted to spend some time cleaning up a few models here and there but I don't think that's going to happen. I wasn't expecting to win anything honestly but I want them to look as good as they can..  you know. .    oh well. We'll see how it goes haha
