Feels like it’s been a busy week and I’ve not been painting that much.
However, I did manage to get a test model done for the Sedition Wars Vanguard troopers earlier in the week. Then this evening, upon return from a weekend trip to far away lands (East Anglia, visiting the folks), I spent a couple of hours working on three more – following the same recipe.
They’re not far off. Just a bit of highlighting on the gun and other black bits, then some ink glazes for colour toning and washes on the base to finish. Oh and the visor of course.
I was originally thinking of going for a different and lighter colour scheme, but in the end it felt too right to go classic Colonial Marine meets Halo Spartan. I may vary colours a little across squads with some different hues but I’m happy with these olive green ones.
I should probably do some squad markings but we’ll see.
As with the Strain models, I intend to put together a step-by-step tutorial for the recipe I’m following.
