In today's Dreadball December its time get out the paintbrush and start working on our first team, the Rothwell Mighty Apes.
One of my favourite things about Dreadball is that you can come up with your own unique colour scheme, names and background for your team and players, you don't have to limit yourself to the teams in the rulebooks. I decided my first team would be the Corporation Trontek 29'ers from the Dreadball Deluxe Boxed set but I wanted to personalise them.
Thus the Rothwell Mighty Apes were born!
Stage One: Preparation & Assembly
Like all miniatures, Dreadball models need a little preparation before painting. Firstly I gave them a quick wash with soapy water and rinse to remove any mold release residue from the casting process. Then using a hobby knife I carefully scrapped off the mold lines and flash on the models, taking care not to remove any details.
