With the excitement of being in White Dwarf this month, my hobby motivation is extremely high and I’m really enjoying painting at the moment. These traitors are my favourite sculpts from the new Chosen models. For simple push-fit models the details are incredible. More angles of these ruthless killers after the jump.
One of the things you might have noticed that is different from my first test mini is the base is now terracotta instead of black. I agree with some of the feedback I received and the black base edge and black armour was too much. I struggled to pick a colour that would work with my rusted plate metal bases and gaming boards. I was going to go for Skrag Brwn with is quite orangey, but in the end I settled for a more red like brown and used VGC terracotta, this colour also ties in with the cloth elements of the models.
I will be starting the detailed photo tutorial now, if this interests you then make sure you bookmark us, follow us with your google accounts or/and on Facebook.
So good. I'm beginning to question my decision to do mine as Night Lords now…
Very nice… maybe you could tie the yellow freehands better to the whole paint scheme by picking up the bright yellow elsewhere, for example on the daemonic eyes?
Congrats on being in WD this month. I guess we will see it as part of the review this month? Also I like the color choice for the base there. Helps to show off the colors of the model much better without detracting from it. Cheers
I still thik some more work on the base colour…maybe try tamiya Hull Red thats a slightly browner shade than you have there…
Great minds think alike Minitrol. Since posting this I've actually compiled my black legion tutorial which will be going live soon. I've changed the bases to Doombull Brown.
Very nice, the gore on the axe works really well imo. Do you have any cultists in similar colors? Be interesting to see your take on the whole force from the set! Also, too all four of the authors sorry for the surge of posts from me – only found this site recently so I keep finding lots of amazing minis!
congrats on being in WD too of course
Hi Whippet, I haven't started my cultists yet. When I do, I'll probably post a tutorial.
Don't apologise for posting, we encourage it.
Cool. The cultists are pretty good models but I'm quite unimaginative when it comes to my models and struggle with models like cultists that need variety whilst also needing to remain uniform. Until then, I'll just keep an eye out for your black legion tutorial, and maybe try and attempt an Escher gang like those in the showcase. Thanks again
