I've finally managed to put my hands on this looong time neglected project. These minis belong to the first KS from Blind Beggar Miniatures, so the ones who know what am I talking about can get an idea of the awful, painstaking delay I have on my painting queue :(
Anyway, good news is that I've been spilling some paint on them, so I have the whole group from that KS; besides, I added Barnacle Ben to the lot from a later KS. I thought the mini totally fits in the group, couldn't resist to that.
So OK, let's go:
|No reason not to look in fashion here in the borderlands|
|You didn't expect these colours? Everyone in Necromunda is wearing them this season!|
|Ready to ransack each settlement from here to the outer rim|
You can see I've favoured bright colours and I've consciously avoided dull patterns. I wanted them to stand out, to somehow break the FIW appearance, but with no conversions on them. My idea for them is to represent a nomad tribe of the wastelands, wandering from here to there, through the ash deserts, the contaminated promethium pump complexes, the upper wild mountains and of course the perilous underhive.
|Seriously, no one will give them a second look at the harbors of the underhive|
|I do love the cyber hounds. Endless possibilities for scenarios|
Well, they surely make a wild bunch of rough badasses. Painting them has been quite easy going; I've enjoyed painting different patterns on the clothes and going to unexpected places with the approach I was aiming for them. The creator, Paul, is a true gentleman whose enthusiasm knows no boundaries; in fact he has been regularly expanding the ranges with different kickstarter campaigns, so now Blind Beggar Miniatures is quite a place to have into consideration. I had to restrict myself as the lead mountain is kind of imposing right now and I don't really want to compromise my schedule for the next couple of years with unpainted minis -at least until I manage to get more stuff done!
My RT board flows with people again. Yet more to come!
