Sarge!

A determined sergeant joins the reiver squad.






He came out fine but I like the first reiver better for some reason. Might be the mask. Oh well... 

Anyway - three to go for a full squad. Having a go at batch painting them this time. Well see how that goes - I do not enjoy batch painting...

    1. Cheers! It's a nice change from the superconverted stuff. You need a break from all that sometimes.

  2. Dramatic. I like them. I feel your pain. I am finishing up my DV boxed set and I somehow had to stupid idea to do angels of redemption. Yes, a split scheme to batch paint -_- I'm a dolt!

  4. Sweet Cthulhu, that is a flippin' cool paint job. I've been so tempted to pick up some myself, but my wallet said "No". I've trained it well.

    1. You can always get the three reiver box! It's a lot cheaper if you only want to have a go at them.

  5. Batch painting is awful. I've tried it and utterly failed at it.

    The sergeant looks great. I'm still not on board with the skull masks for some reason, so I prefer him to your first reiver. You're also so good at painting faces ...

    I like how you've used that fiery orange on his plasma pistol. I've always thought the traditional GW blue plasma looked odd. To me, blue reads as cold.

    1. I bloody love the skull masks. Not the skull helmets - they're to chaplainy - but the masks are one of my favourite bits about this kit.

      Well. I've always prefered red/orange coils - it just looks better. But a blue flame is hotter than a yellow one so blue does actually make more sense (considering plasma is about a million degrees)

    2. The blue flame thing ... my rational brain knows this to be true. My irrational brain can't get past, red=hot, blue=cold :)

    3. Haha! Yeah I know... It's just one of those things.
