Neglected Models: Flamers of Tzeentch part 1

It’s been a while since I pulled something out of my pile of neglected models. This time it’s the turn of the flamers of tzeentch:

These models are unusual not just in how I painted them (more on that later) but also in the fact that I had painted these once before.

I bought these metal models in the 1990s, in the very narrow window in which Games Workshop would run sales. They were painted, but a few years later I didn’t like the job and stripped them back.

And so they sat, in pieces and in a tub, for over 15 years. Now I’ve put them back together, undercoated, and painted them:

I have 12 flamers all up, so there will be another batch of these.

I used the Xenus Minis scheme that was meant for bases on these models.

I think it’s worked quite nicely. I painted their hair in green, but once I highlighted that it blended in with the rest of the model.

I’m not sure how to paint the flamers’ bases, but I’m looking closely at Louise Sugden’s sphinx basing for inspiration.
