So you saw my last post painting Karchev the Terrible and the Spriggan.
Time for some infantry!
Iron Fang Pikemen!
I sprayed them with a can of something bone
As you will notice their are no pikes. I have a buddy doing me a HUGE favour and is brass rodding them for me. LOVE YOU IAN!
After i based them I used a dark red on the cloth.
This is assembly line painting at its best. Painting jacks is far more fun. This is driving me nuts! After The red I put some Pig metal on the shiny bits.
The some grey on the base and got it ready for the wash.
Then I hit them with some black wash. Something oil. I don’t know what its called. Doesn’t matter. I cover the whole model using a big brush to save time. Even the bricks on the base get hit. Once that was mostly dry ( I am impatient) I started the highlighting process. Side note. Don’t mix red with white. Not the desired colour I wanted. Pink is nice but not in my IFP. So I did it again using my original red and a brighter red. Bam. That worked much better. After the first pass of highlighting I did it again using the brighter red.
I also used my bone mixed with Menoth white to highlight the armour. Hitting it it on all the edges. After the first pass I decided not to do the white. Mainly because there were 12 models and I am lazy. Overall I liked how it tuned out. Not looking forward to doing a 2nd unit though. I may sit and throw a little more detail on them a little later. After I forget how shitty it was to do 12 models at once!
After I got to this point I got the arms back from Ian. And finished them the same night!
For a change up after the IFP were done I also did this bad ass. (okay this dude will win some games -ed)
Then I went to a local tournament and bought these guys. (and he dropped after going 2-0 -ed)
I attacked them and pounded them out. No play by play just BAM.
I have a limited colour selection at my disposal. So little that when I went to paint her hair I had nothing that jumped out. The browns looked very boring. So I went with blue. And then Rich told me I have failed Khador and should quit the faction. Oh the love I get at my local hobby store! ASS. I like how it tuned out so if I get another Man Hunter I might have to give her some pink hair to really tick him off.
And as I write this I just finished Yuri the axe. But I was too lazy to take a pic. So I’ll do that next time!
At this time every Khador model I own is painted! Not sure how I will expand the army now. Going to have to play a few games with them and see what it needs!
If you made it this far thanks for reading!
(and they look great scott! Even better as I didn’t have to paint them! -ed)
