The Dedlock is one special lady and to support this she is painted in a very unique way compare to the rest of the Saint John force because I wanted her to stand out as not being part of the army but rather an individual who had choosen to join the warband until she felt […]
Category: Dark Age
First unit to follow the new paintscheme. They were a lot faster to paint than the previous Banes and to be honest I think they turned out better. In fact, my Saint John Banes won the Miscellaneous Class at Salute 2004. Check out Class 6 – 1st – Banes – Robert Framsgard. Yes they got my name wrong. […]
I painted the Banger like a bloke who doesn’t care about anything. The weird mixture of clothes (camouflage T-shirt and shiny leather pants, not the best combo). Finally I gave him a farmer’s tan (or Farmer Arms depending where in the world you are) because being as good as he is as shooting is only […]
The Banes are the very core of any Forsaken force so I want the Banes to have the base colours and nothing else. Bane Leader Yes, the Bane Leader miniature was fine as it came, but with two heads in the Saint Mark blister I couldn’t resist the temptation to replace the head of the […]
A really gritty mechanich look with blue overalls and a heavy leather apron and ofcourse the most have dirty white t-shirt. Finally I painted a small red tatoo on the back of his head and painted his ear ring in a bright jade colour so although he looks like he could be your friendly neighbourghood […]
Sister of Compassion
The sister’s colours are way off the Forsaken colourscheme and at first it did bug me a bit, but having played with her, it seems quite fitting A) because she is a super nurse so white nurse outfit makes sense and B) what she does is radically different from the rest of the force which […]
I know you are suppose to paint a regular trooper as the first mini in any army (especially when it is for a new gaming system) in case you get the colourscheme wrong. I guess this is even more true when you have decided to learn a new techique as Non Metalic Metal. But I […]
The Ratchets are the core troops of the Brood and as such they are painted in the basis colourscheme with no frills. Orignally the whole idea of numbering the Brood troops came from the Ratchets since I needed a way to keep tracke of their wounds. However after demoing Dark Age with them at Salute […]
The Grist has more clothing than most Brood in a big cloak like thingy. I painted this in vague red/brown stripes to make it standout but still look old and well used.
The shield and the odd organic looking axe is the two main features of Murtros and I painted them like bone so they look like they are made from organic material as all Brood weapons are. Imagine a specially bred type of turtle which would have had a shiled like that on its back.
Alternative poses for slaves
Note these are the original slaves minis which did not have separated arms and weapons. Strike a pose! Looking at the large bunch of spear slaves in front of me I realise there’s only two poses! “Oh no“, I thought, “not another pointing unit“. Some units work with the same pose on all miniatures. For […]
Dragyri Decision I have been wanting to paint a Dragyri force for some time. However as you might have learned from reading other pages on this site, I hate wasting time! I am a do-not-paint-what-you-cannot-see kinda of gamer, so I have held back on the Dragyri untill I figured out which Dragyri caste to choose. […]
