Ok, I'm getting to the pointy end with my RoC warband project. In previous posts I covered the Champion, Traitor Marine and lvl 0 Psyker creation process. For my next roll on the retinue table I came up with 7 mutated squats. Read on if you'd like to know more.
Dominant attribute: Manic Fighters
Equipment: Mesh armour, lasguns, bolt pistols
Heavy weapon: Heavy Webber with targeter & suspensor
I chose not to modify these guys at all, deciding to let Khornefication come about purely from the paint job alone.
I'm pretty happy with how this squad turned out. I overpainted a few transfers, which I think makes a big difference to the finished product. Also tried a few different visor techniques. They were a little tricky, not 100% satisfied with them, but I couldn't find a decent tutorial for them so I just had to wing it. I think they look ok.
Never painted squats before either, so that was a first.
Next up will be the lvl 2 Psyker. The last member of the warband. BOYL is not far away too so I better get a move on.
Cheers Phil :)Delete
Wooow! That's awesome band!ReplyDelete
Thanks Michal. I'm happy with them too :)Delete
Those look great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Riot,I try my best :)Delete
Spot on! I think the meltagunner with his skull-adorned helmet and vibrant beard is my favourite of the bunch!ReplyDelete
Thanks very much Jon :)Delete
I'm glad to have a squad of squats that I can use in future games now.
It's gunna be great to see everyone's unique warbands in a few weeks time.
Those are so cool!ReplyDelete
Thanks Andrew. They're great little angry bastards aren't they.Delete
Nice work. They look cool.ReplyDelete
Cheers Matt :)Delete
Nice work, and by not making them obvious mutants (although I have my suspicions about that guy with the robot head) they can play in other games too!ReplyDelete
That chap with the communicator seems a bit full of himself.
Haha :D thanks Lasgun :)Delete
Yeah, they're not fully chaotic as such. Apart from the Khorne symbol on the back of one anyway. He's a real bad egg!
These are the only squats I have, so it'll be good to be able to use them in other games as you suggested.
Thanks man :)
What is with the Weezer Island in The Sun background! :DReplyDelete
Lovely painting all around!
The beach backdrop is a challenge to all gamers out there to elevate their photographic standards. Bloggers have, for far too long, cheated our followers with cheesy, realistic, atmospheric and genre specific backdrops. I say "throw of those shackles and get jiggy wit it!"Delete
Glad you like my short, maniacal abhumans Mr Viking :)
