I'm finally putting this Relic Knights project to an end with today's stuff. As I previously told you, Keyan Sark and I had exchanged the minis we had repeated from our respective starter sets. This means that I handed over him a robot and a Hell's Belles kit and I got five Diamond Corps soldiers and a robo-tank in exchange.
This is how Keyan's guys look like:

I of course had to try a different approach, my whole cadre being painted white! I used the same technique, i.e., white priming, light grey shades and then up until I get some decent white.
Once again I faced the very same problem. The casting of the minis is not up to my expectations, and that's a shame. Mold lines unable to be removed and lack of detail on several parts of the mini, making some supposed-to-be sharp edges quite dull, that kind of stuff.
Here you can see the squad leader:
|Ha ha! Look at you!|
I've tried to keep the pattern coherent with my previous stuff, so white armour with orange stripes here and there and black clothes.
|Lord Vader is over there!|
I'm afraid that the pics don't help much either in this particular case. Tricky colour balance, especially regarding white, I guess.
Anyway, the concept of the minis is not that bad. They look quite in the anime vibe and if just the cast was a little bit better, they would be great.
Now all I have to do is finally arrange a game to see what is this all about!
Oh, wait. You say that at the beginning I was talking about a robo-tank too. Riiiight... Well... As a matter of fact I have different plans for that one. You'll see what I mean later on this week... See you then!
