Ever opened a copy of one of the realm of chaos books when you were ten? Ever tried to own each and everyone of the Jes Goodwin chaos champion? Ever spent days lurking on ebay for a complete Kaleb Dark or chaos toilets?
You're at home here.
So after all these Colony 87 models and Mordheim games, I thought it was time for me to get to work with... more colony 87models ! This time I'm going back to wave 1 because with 10 models done out of the 12 available, I feel compelled to finish the whole set (and it's more a pleasure than a chore really).
I picked this one as he seemd the most straightforward of the lot and I could go a little crazy on weathering. I know those sort of techniques can seem like "cheating" or like a cheap way to get results but as a matter of fact I don't think there's such a thing as cheating in painting, there's only result and for this one, I just needed to get fast results with an intersting look.
I've used my usual recipe for rusted steel and then painted the clothing perfectly normally. The stains were just built with progressive glazes of different browns and then a slight wash at the bottom. I kept the colours simple because I want this one to roam ash watses (though I knw they're depicted as colourful and flamboyant in the confrontation background) and have a little post-apoc look to him.
Ash waste nomads are a group I'm eager to start working on really and I've been gathering th eproper models to do so. I've got a nice model to do the sci-fi equivalent of a pack mule for this guy and for th etime being, you can see him next to a couple of adventurers he could easily team up with !
That's all for now, more colony 87 models to come (2 actually), some more Frostgrave and some unexpected models too ! All in the next episodes of Leadplague !
