ReGen LabRats

In trying to keep up with my recent goals for the rest of the year I'm going to skip about from project to project for a while. So next stop is getting some paint on my Dreadball teams. I picked up the four basic teams last year and even started painting the human team. But to be honest those figures did nothing for me and I quickly ran out of interest. I might go back and repaint them in a slightly different scheme but for the time being I'm going to work on some figures I like better. Hence the LabRats.

Following the spectacular failure of two of the flagship products of the year, ( See TransStellar Gazette articles "Implant Hearts Explode!: 24 Dead" and " Canid Chimera Peace Officers Go on Rampage: 56 Injured!" ) ReGen Interstellar saw the need to try to rebuild its PR image. What better way than sponsoring a sports team, and even better manufacture the players themselves. Thus the ReGen LabRats entered the Triborium League!

My old Skaven Blood Bowl team were purple so I carried it over to these fellows. 

The acid green details were added for that future sports team look. 

One thing I don't like about the Mantic resin/plastic is that it's really difficult to clean up. You can see the mold line running right down the middle of this guy still. 

While taking pictures I realized I don't have anything to work for the background so I started to knock together some Sci-Fi sports arena for the next photo-op. 


  1. Nice work. I can see why you would switch from painting humans to these. The figures have a lot of character. Like the idea for the backdrop for photos.

    1. Thanks Mark! These guys are definitely more fun to paint. Hopefully I'll have the background done for when I finish painting the next couple of guys.

  2. Great team - my BB Skaven are in purple too!

    1. Thank you Paul. I think purple is the proper color for ratmen!
