I signed up for Squaduary over on Stepping Between Games. I decided to paint up my Sepulchral Guard for Shadespire. I was going to paint them up anyway but it took nearly nearly 4 months to finish Steelheart's Champions. A grand total of 3 minis. This is a good way to add some urgency to the process. The Guard are built and primed and there's an additional model from the old Heroquest board game I think. I want to try out this paint scheme on them but it seems too easy so a test model will confirm whether it works or whether, like most attempts to emulate GW painters, it ends up looking like a dog's breakfast.
Inevitably, I've already been distracted by something else and assembled Carab Culln during the week. Is it Dreadtober already? I was automatically reaching for the magnets when it came to the shoulder and waist joints but I'm going to pin him instead. (what madness is this?) The model doesn't have any weapon options and I'm happy with the pose. Plus I think I'd need something stronger than the usual 5 x 1 mm neomydium magnets and can't be arsed buying more. That resin is quite heavy, comparatively speaking and I really don't want something dropping off him in the middle of a game and smashing on the floor.
Excellent pledge, and Cullen looks mean these days! Sweet.ReplyDelete
Yeah, Culln has had a grimdark extreme makeover!Delete
Yep, that's a HeroQuest skellie! I've got most of those still around somewhere.ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing how these turn out for you. I had a lot of fun working with them.
And yeah, Culln's badass. I don't think I would have been able to resist putting him together either.
Our version of Heroquest has been customised and played so many times that I wasn't even sure what the original box content consisted of.Delete
I already don't like the test model and have diverged from Mr. Mengel's recipe. I'm going to try out Typhus Corrosion as well having seen your Sepulchral Guard.
Get back to those bones!ReplyDelete
But man Cullen looks ace. I wonder could he be drawn to the dark side...
