There was a recent post on TMP about whether people have experimented with painting figures in other than color.  That reminded me of these figures I painted some years ago.  At the time, I had grand plans of doing a whole game in black and white except for the camera crew to give the game that old movie look.  I was even going to make the scenery as flats like on a movie set.  These five figures are as far as I got.

Star Ducks are Approaching

I have been working slowly on these Archive Star Ducks over the past couple of days.  I need to touch up the white gloves and then flock the bases.  If you look closely you will see some of the ducks have gold crests on their helmets.  Those are the leaders.  Then I will have three squads plus a heavy weapons team ready for play.  Guard your small fish, crustaceans, snails, and worms, because marauding Space Ducks are on their way!
