Hello everyone, Arcane here with the first instalment of my Tale of Tuesdays Underworlds warband post. Let’s look to the skies as I introduce you to the Thundrik’s Profiteers…
Now I know what you’re all thinking, does Arcane have a thing for dwarves? The answer is…yes yes I do. I had such a blast with the blood bowl team I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have a crack at the Kharadrons this time. I’ve always been curious about these guys after seeing the airships and I fell in love even more with the character Borik in Andy Clark’s Gloomspite novel so of course I had to get started on this group of aerial aces.
Metallics is always a weird one for me as I can never get the consistency right of the paints so of course in true Arcane way I have picked a 90% metallic warband…If I’m being completely honest I actually had an easier time with Liberator Gold especially after thinning it a lot more. I think the majority of my problem is the paint congealing into a goop and needing to thin it even further to get a less thick viscosity. Either way this has proven to be a good practice and learning process and I’m really happy with how they’re taking shape.
In the next few weeks I will be refining the metallic even more and potentially adding some weathering due to the fact these guys have been lost in our beloved mirrored city for who knows how many years. Chances are they didn’t take any Chamon Grade armour polish on their expedition and are looking a little worse for wear.
