Hmm… for some reason the post I added this weekend has been dated by wordpress as being in January. Not sure why that happened but it gives me a chance of putting up another post of a different item.
So, here are a pair of Cryx figures for Warmahordes. Although, when painting them I keep thinking more about what they could be in comic inspired games (either superhero or fantastical pulp games). Both of these are Pistol Wraiths in the game and I did read these are undead duelists, so decided that each one would look quite different.I kept the same theme colours throughout – trying to keep green as a key part of both figures but ensuring that each is also very unique. The first one is mainly green. This is a fairly simple model so tried to go for some interesting and overt colour transitions on the frock-coat it is wearing.Overall, the blending seems to work quite well on the table. It’s not as neat as the expert painters can do but it works. I was not really happy with the figures hair but tried a few things and this as the best I result I got. I did not want it to be ‘on fire’ so it’s just blonde now.The second Pistol Wraith is mainly grey. This one just has some green (on the belt and a collar motif which is a little hard to see in these photo’s) to keep it in the theme of the Cryx force. I did them different colours so they could be used in games and it be readily apparent which is which. The thing is those that these really are not painted in a ‘supers’ style but I’m not sure I’ll even do real super hero’s that way. I tried to go for the purples for the ‘spirit fumes’ which are showing rather than legs of the model. I think it came off quite well and gives the figure a little more spookiness than it may have had otherwise.So there we are, another couple of figs for the Cryx force or really any horror type baddies.
