|Four warriors almost done!|
Sorry for the poor picture quality. I actually have 9 warriors now painted excluding the arms at the moment and, as much as I love painting them, I kinda got bored with the monotony of warriors yesterday and needed a break. So in one sitting I was able to paint up a base of my minor converted Scarabs and, overall, I'm pretty pleased with the outcome!
|Is that a tank they spot? Om nom nom nom!|
I decided to put the 40k basing kit I bought years ago to good use with the Scarabs. I did contemplate the whole moulding the scarabs and making huge swarms on one base idea but I didn't go through with it for a few reasons:
- I can't find any milliput to buy to make decent, cheap moulds.
- Every man and his dog seems to be doing this nowadays.
- Most importantly - I couldn't be bothered.
But I quite like the effect I got regardless. I definitely feel I got the look of Scarabs rusting and breaking down debris, which is what I was going for. Also notice the red helmet on the left. I will be painting all dead Space Marines in red colours from now on because, as everyone who knows me well knows, I hate Blood Angels.
So that's it for now, I suppose I better get on with my Warriors! Peace out.
