Chaos test bunnies

As I get towards the closing stages of painting the Warhammer Quest Silver Tower models, a few gaps are opening up on tray 5. With most of the Silver Tower Models now on their Shattered Terrain bases, I have space for additional models.

This works out nicely as I haven’t yet settled on a paint scheme for my Slaves to Darkness army. Taking some advice from Goobertown Hobbies, I have assembled some old models I don’t intent to use, and these will provide test areas for some paint scheme options.

How can I say this. These models are… not good. They don’t so much look as though they were designed by committee, but rather that they were designed by several different committees who weren’t on speaking terms.

The result is cartoonishly bad. These models were replaced eventually by a good alternative. I have had these hunchbacked wonders around for a while, but now I look at them again they aren’t even worth keeping for parts.

They will make good test models for some colour schemes I am thinking of, so you’ll see these models again soon, covered in paint!

    For the uninitiated, what is bad about these models? Looking at them, I have no idea…

      The head/body join in the main issue. Most plastic figures have a neck join where you glue the head to the body. These models have no neck, and the join is at the back of the head, giving them a hunchback look. On top of that the shoulders and hands are exaggerated in size, which messes even further with their proportions in comparison with other models of the same scale.

      When I finish the new models too I will take some side to side shots.
