I might love these models, and considering I lost a week to a trip. Having these done in less then a month since I submitted the Tzanngors, is an absolute record for me personally. I now have more digits then models left to paint, so this is getting close to being finished. I’m actually really happy with the paintjob as well. Considering they are a large group of models especially. but I was grossly mistaken when I said they would be easy to paint…
I went with a really simple colour scheme with these guys, I thought the mostly naked flesh would go well with a simple white and gold colour scheme. Most people online I’ve seen paint these guys add blue into mix, but I think after painting the Tzaangors I’d had enough of blue. I’m glad I didn’t as well, as the two remaining tzeentch models are blue from head to toe pretty much (and one of them is huge!), and with all the game tiles in Silver Tower being blue… well I’d got enough with blue already to say the least.
I think these guys were the hardest to get just-right. The shield and its curves I found very difficult, so honestly I’m happy they came out looking as clean as they do. I absolutely loves these guys swords, they look like they mean some real business.
“Join me, it is your destiny!” – I cant be the only person who thinks that looking at these two, lovely lovely sculpts and ‘Oh Boy’ are their glaives awesome looking.
Like I said in the first paragraph these guys were a lot harder to paint then I’d first anticipated, the large amounts of flesh was particularly difficult to work with from both a skill and fatigue perspective. The last layers took five hours-ish to apply to the group and its rather tedious. I’m very very happy with the results and the only thing I’d change going back is how I’ve painted them all white. Probably add some different skin tones into the mixture to break apart the duplicate sculpts and to keep myself sane while painting.
“WiP” I love this photo, this is coming along well, and I think now that I can see the end goal I think I’ll double my efforts with painting. The lovely big space in-front of the priest is reserved for them pesky grot scuttlings.
I don’t think I really cba painting the new multi-part plastics for these guys, that come with hammerhal. Maybe ill just flog the sprues and just use these guys in that game. Save me some money and time painting more models. Who knows!
