Prot Doing the White Scars!
Finally a proper hobby update!
Here is my first squad of Incursors. Again it’s been a really fun and different style for me.
And here is a White Scars Phobos Lt. to go with them.
And just because the previous picture was so bad, here’s the Lt. with the Khan.
Once again my goal here is to get this army playable ASAP.
Right now I have a mess of models that I ordered the week that GW closed their stores down. So I’m sitting on a mini mountain of plastic trying to get 2K done from scratch. Ouch.
I have been getting regular games in still and am enjoying the very unique playstyle this kind of army is giving me.
I think the hobby side has been refreshing. I prefer the battle worn look for my dudes, whereas my Ultra’s always kind of looked like they just stepped out of the factory. Not that there’s anything wrong about that but when you’ve painted as many armies as I have, this is a refreshing change of pace.
Technique wise I feel I found what I need in a weird place…. GW’s Wraithbone Primer for their Contrast paints provides a very slight ‘egg shell’ or light beige base. But more importantly it disperses the combination of black and brown Army painter washes I’m using. Much better than on pure “normal” primer.
Then I go in after with a zenithal white highlight with the airbrush, then get in and drity the model up with some oils, and a sponge chipping, which is touched up manually with brushwork. Then I can get in and finish all the details on the armour, guns, skin, whatever else.
I hope I can make this work on the table top. So far it’s been touch and go.
I have a few games scheduled this week. I work in technology so my work is flexible at this time. I normally don’t know who I’m playing before hand but this week it looks like: Death Guard, and Blood Angels.
Blood Angels might be a nightmare match up for me. I think they’ll hit a lot harder than me until T3. Interesting match up for sure.
Thanks for checking it out.
