2.4 Arkoline

Arkoline is another one of those miniatures where I think Mantic’s universe starts to come into its own. Although she’s bipedal and humanoid, the crystalineife form is really cool. And maybe Crystaline life forms can choose to assume many different shapes and they chose bipedal humanoid, it’s a pretty versatile form to take. Anyway whatever, it’s these fringe species, many of which you can see in Dreadball – in this case the Crystallan – that give the universe its charm.

To paint it I basically used a white undercoat and then covered it with blue contrast paint. I then gave it a drybrush before popping a blue glaze on to finish. For the metal I used the Iron Warriors base colour, which is a very dark, gun metal colour with a black wash over the top. I then just did some edge highlights using Iron Breaker. After varnishing with a Satin Varnish I applied a coat of Ard Coat gloss to the blue areas to give the crystal sections a nice reflective finish.

Wow! I’m amazed at how much you’ve done! Brilliant work mate, I love seeing this come together and when I’m finally settled into my new place I may start painting mine!
