So got the base coats and a wash down. Before the wash they looked like high colour Lego men. It was a special moment where i glared at them for a bit thinking ‘his is a dark army of monsters, why are you so bright?’

However a couple of things grew out of that. Bare with me I’m pretty shambolic in my musings, but i use them to take new directions

First of all trying to get blue on them he heads of the weapons are going to be made of ice. I think this means i need to add a Dwarf to my command base to represent the person who is making these icy weapons.

The skin tone turned out too dark, but i like it. It has a watery vibe going on there, i’m still going to highlight up to white, but i think it pulls all the other colours together and is less BLUE than the official skin tone, which is the kind of blue you shout through a megaphone.

I think the mask works, i need to carry on the mask theme elsewhere. It has a Warframe, Mobius, Del Toro thing going on there and I like it. You do not have to.

Bright colours, i think i may lean into the brightness. With whites and blues as my basing colours, the brighter the mini, the more it will pop. I could lean into an AOS28 vibe, but I’ve done a lot of armies in that grim muddy look and i think a high colour, high contrast army of monsters will look different and be a lo of fun.

Other thoughts include i need to make a murder tree for my command base, turning it into a little diorama will be fun and my Stalkers are still not here….so i will be ordering from OTT from now on.

OH i forgot, i’m using Vallejo acrylics (just primary colours, ochres and black and white), GW base texture, and Agrax earthshade/Windsor and Newton brown ink depending on which one I pick up first. I mention this as that’s what you are supposed to do in blogs right?
