Skorne Group Pictures

I got those pesky Swordsmen done today, and I must say, those are the most detailed models ever.  Holy cow.  Just when I thought I was done and could relax, I’d realize I needed to go highlight all the black.  Then I’d forgotten to paint the pommels of their swords.  Then I noticed those big horn things on their one shoulder pad.  These things never end!

Using basic speed painting techniques really helped.  Work on one color, and do everything with the big brush first, then go back through on the same color with the small brush to get the smaller details.  Switching brushes on every models just eats up time.  Washes were also my friend.
Anyway, here’s the majority of my Hexeris T3 force, all painted up!
After those swordsmen, I need a break from Skorne!  Our local group has a Slow Grow league starting in a week or two, and I’m doing Khador.  I’m doing a black and pink theme, and since I’m doing Butcher1’s theme force, It will also work for Clash of the Titans!  The pink was chosen in support of PG_Wold’s Paint it Pink:
The 2011 Paint It Pink painting contest is designed to help promote breast cancer awareness through the miniature wargame hobby. Simply paint one miniature or an entire army using pink as a prominent color, and enter your work into any appropriate categories.

I think big, burly Khador in pink will be fun, as well as support a good cause.  It’s also a theme force for Clash of the Titans, and will be a great vehicle for the Slow Grow League.  Lastly, I should be able to paint the majority of my plastic Khador battlebox in the process, which gives me another demo tool.  Yay for … three birds with one stone?
I’ve got a spare Man-O-War Demolition Corp model I’ve assembled and primed, and I’ll be using him as a test model for the paint scheme.  The scheme will use mostly p3 paints also, which I’m rather excited about.  Look for pictures of the test model soon!

  • I guess you've never painted a Rackham figure if you think Skorne are bad šŸ™‚

    The swordsmen are nice figs though among my favorite PP sculpts and you've done them justice.

  • I'm just about to begin painting my own unit of Swordsmen today and the first couple of sentences in this post are not helping me.
    I really like your Skorne force however, good job.

  • Cheers guys!

    Don't get me wrong, while amazingly detailed, they were still fun to paint. Plus, the feeling of accomplishment is well worth the time it took to get them done.

    The sad part is I have another min unit to do!

  • The fun never ends eh? šŸ™‚ Many cryx models seem to have nice (if sometimes frustrating) details on them too, so I feel your pain.
