Greetings fell creatures!
Alrighty, I have a lot of updates that will be coming along so here we go. Apologies on the lack of posting. Work, life, mental, personal, medical health excuses and all that. It's been crazy. Trying to push through.
I had a productive fall and end to 2023. I have two big sets of minis painted and based. Started some others. Building some more. And helping my 9 year old get his Ork Kill team boiz up and running.
Anyways, here we go.
My son and I got the Kill Team Starter set months ago that features the Ork Kommandos and Veteran Guardsman teams since it also came with scenery and a mat and accessories. It was a better deal per piece than getting armies separate. I had already bought another Killteam set which I have yet to paint but figured the other stuff was worth it.
So the above picture shows all of them together as their whole Killteam.
They are featured using the slapchop method painting and that was created using dark grey primer coat drybrushing up a couple shades with light grey and then white. The color scheme was inspired by a piece of fan fiction I was writing a long time ago. The top coasts are contrast orange and blue from Citadel.
Paints for Veteran Guardsman Custom Color Scheme
Magmadroth Flame = Orange Armor
Talassar Blue = Blue Great Coat
Basilicanum Grey = Grey Straps, Boots, and Guns
Warp Lightning = Green Lenses
Sour Apple (DecoArt) = Green Base
After doing so, I would say this, you have to work really hard to not end up with a grainy dark effect under the colors and most times would recommend newbies to stick with just white as the undercoat for contrast and speed paints. Gives a better finish in my opinion. I think it ended up with a neat look for these Veteran Guardsman. As for building them, they were surprisingly not terrible and required little cleanup. I am used to the nightmare of Chaos builds, so this was a nice break.
These guys are the first full squad of minis painted using the slapchop method. Also, they are the first full squad of minis completed in a long time. Very happy with the results and I hope to post more like these Veteran Guardsman soon.
Keep on warmongering you diabolical deviants!
