Quick-Painted Bughunt Corridor and Soy Paint on Hexcrates

After this straight section was assembles with glue I gave it a quick and dirty basic paintjob. More details will likely come later- and I'm still not sure if this is how I want the main color scheme to look for these. 
 Silver metallic or the floor grating. The interior walls are a red-brown. The supports are a dark midnight blue. And the outside is a flat black (I was going for wear on the outside walls, that's why the light coverage in areas.

 With some 28mm Reaper Chronoscope figs for scale.
I'm happy with it for now. I really need to get more sections together and painted to see how it will look overall. And next time I will likely wait to attach the walls until the rest has been painted.

Back to the Soy Paint from a few updates ago- here are the bottles. I had forgotten they were from Delta.

These are assembled hex crates from the Bughunt Corridors Kickstarter painted with the brown and red soy paints. I did a drybrush over the soy paints with an off-white to add some weathering to them.

 Here are the hex crates with a couple 28mm ladies to show how big they are.

 And the 2 hex crates inside the painted straight section of corridor with a 28mm Grey Alien figure to show how everything goes together.

Fantasy Arc Kickstarter ARRIVAL!!! Bug Hunt Corridors Are Here!

I backed the Fantasy Arc Bug Hunt Corridors sci-fi terrain set on Kickstarter because I thought "hey those look pretty cool and I'd like some nice 3-D hallways that aren't fantasy/medieval themed." It has been a bit of a wait but the box arrived today! I am sick and this is the best thing this week and especially today.

 I'm RICH!!! At least with this awesome laser-cut terrain. There's a metric crap-ton of these hex containers that I think are very cool and the greatest obstacles for sci-fi gaming.

 Here are just a few of the millions of types of kits that I got. It will take some time to assemble everything...

 This is just a standard straight section that I quickly assembled with no glue (still not sure what glue will be best).
 It went together in less than 3 minutes but I wasn't going for a quick assembly time. It was an easy assembly without any trouble from the pieces. Though it is loose because no glue yet so it would likely not stand up long to much handling.

Now some pics with minis! Sorry for the poor lighting. All of these are on 25mm round bases.
 Some scientists doing science-y things...

 These 3 are up to some mischief...

 The Founders being escorted by a Cthood mercenary...

I'm so glad I backed this Kickstarter and the wait was well worth it. Thanks to Ken for this excellent product!
