Finally my first Warrior squad is complete, bases and all. They are only painted quite simply because I can see myself needing maybe 40 (or 36 – three boxes) of these guys at some point if I wanted to field larger squads or make use of Ghost Arks.
As I finished these guys off I had to add a little bit of Mithril Silver highlighting to the shoulderpads, spine and collarbone plus some Golden Griffon (Dry) onto the joints. The squad was just a little too boring without the added features.
I also went for a very basic (read: poor) OSL effect on the weapons and from the eyes. The sourcing isn’t done properly but I only wanted them simple and fast. The glow is across the weapon, around the eyes and the reflection of the weapon on the chest plate.
Up next is the Immortals and the Scarabs. For the Scarabs I want to try for a yellow/black striped effect on the shell while I am still considering how to add some additional colour to my Immortals. White shoulder and upper leg armour is tempting but I don’t enjoy working with whites, even the new paints.
