From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I have painted the test models for my Slaves to Darkness force. I tried a few different paint schemes, some of which even worked.
Okay let’s look at these a little closer.
These two had a visit from my colour shift metallics. The one on the right didn’t work at all. The one of the left looks nice in his blue and gold. Ultimately I didn’t like the overall effects of a model painted entirely in metallics. Moving on…
This is a bit more like it. The one on the right is painted in a similar scheme to my plague marines. I like it, but ultimately decided I didn’t want to paint two forces in an identical scheme. The one on the left has a paint job inspired by my approach to the Tzaangors in Warhammer Quest, and I used some colour shift blue on his chain armour. That has possibilities.
These two were me seeing what models would look like if I painted them the same as some recent Arcane Ruins terrain pieces. Of the two, I like the one on the left, minus the colour shift metallics on his shoulder armour.
Ultimately I think my choice is between these two. I’m leaning towards the Arcane Ruins-style one on the right, but which one do you like more? Of course, my other option is to pick none of these, and go with a more ‘official’ looking black and gold. That is tempting too!
