Aventine has been having a great time painting up his Van Saar gang. Take a look.
I knew I wanted to do something different than what I typically see with the Van Saar, and that meant doing something bright. I hemmed and hawed a bit for while, trying to decide between bright orange, yellow, or white. White was my initial urge, but I worried about them looking like Storm Troopers. Eventually I pushed past that and went with my gut; white it was!
To paint the models I initially primed with a flat grey and then gave the models a zenithal white spray with my air brush. I then lined all the armour panels with Nuln Oil, and picked out cables, parts of the under suit, and weapons in black. I edged the armour plates with Leadbelcher and then Ironbreaker. To finish the armour it was lightly dusted with Burnt Umber powder. The eyes were picked out with Mephiston Red, followed by Wild Rider Red. The cables are striped with Iyanden Darksun (modern equivalent) and highlighted with Flash Gitz Yellow. The skin is Cadian Fleshtone base, washed Carroburg Crimson, re-highlighted with Kislev Flesh.
Overall I am very happy with how the models came out. They were quick to paint and should be striking on the table. What do y’all think?
