What's your star sign? Pisces

Slow progress this week, real life and stuff, you know. Buuut how could I make it up for that? Bringing some colourful fish!

Yup, I know, the pic itself doesn't make much sense
These are part of the Space Riders KS too. If you remember, I had already painted a couple of Pisceans by Diego. These two granted me the chance of having a squad. My inspiration was clear, I had already begun the Nemo path... :D

Doesn't ring a bell? Oh, come on, he even has face scars!
Well, this is a free adaptation, I give you that

So you can see where my plan leads to, hehehe. With time I hope I can get models for all the fish tank. Besides, I took part in the DieHard Miniatures KS; I chose the Eru-Kin faction; I think they fit properly with this aesthetics, so in the end I think this could be a nice, different warband ;)

But for the moment this is it. Now for more!

P.S.: Any ideas on models for the project are most welcome! :)

    1. Thank you! Well, I think this is some kind of updated RT concept, taking elements from pop culture and making it into the game. I'd love to do lots of much daring Works, hehehe

    1. Thanks! Oh, I totally recommend these minis. The sculpt is top notch, it really catches the eye and all the essence of the period.

  4. Those are very cool! Nice paint schemes with a fun theme. The hand weapons on the yellow one look a bit weedy, and the sword doesn't seem to sit right - is this the angle of the photo? Great squad anyway, sir.

    1. Thank you! Oh, you are right, you noticed, hehe. In fact I swapped the weapons. The sculpt is the same that the other Pisceans I already had, so I made this arrangement to make it look slightly different. I think I should have worked a little bit more on the hands and grips, but at tabletop distance I hope it doesn't look that bad...

  5. Gorgeous colours - so very eye-catching! A shoal of these would be a real sight to see :)

  6. If I can make one suggestion it would be this fella

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/fish/latest/77187

    It is armed with a sword but would be no problem to convert.

  7. Fishmen are fun! I converted a Reaper bones figure last year, and while he has a different look, he is pretty similar in layout, so he could fit. I was considering adding the guy that Riot ville linked to above, or I might just do the same guy again with different arms.

    1. You totally convinced me, your conversion is subtle and works perfectly! I'll no doubt be purchasing some Fishmen soon! Thank you!

  9. If you are having a slow week, my last couple of weeks have been a complete standstill. But it's the holidays so I'm trying to enjoy the short (hopefully) break from the hobby with some quality time with the family.

    Nice paint job of these guys although I must admit the only fish I can stand with legs is Darwin from The Adventures of Gumball. ;)

    Oh ... and do have yourself a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. :)

  10. I've heard Foundry have a few fish men, but I'm not sure what they look like.
