Yesterday’s post left you googlespiders with a bit of a cliffhanger as to what happened to the other half of my box of ork boyz, well now you know! I got busy with the brush, cracked out the Flames of War paintset and churned out these Heer-os!
This could actually be quite a good army theme, especially if one can get one’s grubby paws on some ork sized stahlhelms and orky balkenkreuzen. Sometimes though it’s one thing to get an idea and do some testers, and a whole world of difference to actually get the project to table. Heck that could take all week!
So you take Warcraft away from somebody for a week and this is what happens… I got my grubby mouse-free hands on a Vallejo ‘Flames Of War German Infantry Paint Set’, mixed it up with some Imperial Guard models and dunked the whole lot in some Army Painter.
I did the bulk of the paint job sat in my car during my lunch break. Unfortuantely the strong tone has pooled a bit excessively. To prevent this in future I think I’ll adopt Carabus’s non-dunk technique of painting the tone on with one brush, then removing it with another to keep the stuff just in the shady areas.
It’s not going to win any slayer swords, but as a gaming model it would do the job nicely. I could probably even list it on eBay as ‘pro-painted’. If I come up with any more crazy ideas I’ll let you all know!
As a side note, do you think there are potential morality issues here?
