|My PHR starter army|
|4 units of infantry (5 models per base) and their armoured transports the Juno IFV|
The models were painted mainly with my airbrush, and I pre-shaded everything as well. I base coated the models in light grey, then shaded around the panels and the underside with a black ink airbrushed on as a 50/50 mix with a flat clear. I then did a thin coat of khaki and then a few coats of bone mixed with a glaze medium. This let the shading show up around each panel (although not in the photos!! Sorry).
|The PHR use heavily armed and armoured walkers |
instead of the tanks that most other armies us.
|A PHR medium Neptune dropship. |
Each of these can carry either 2 walkers or 2 troop transports
From Curt:Sweet! These look amazing Byron! I really like the subtle shading on these vehicles and your process with the enamel based ink wash sounds very cool. I've never worked with an airbrush as I've never have the room for their use but I'm always fascinated with what others can do with them.
I've looked at this game over the past few years and while I've been sorely tempted by the figures I've always thought the overall premiss to be a little thin. 'Lets all use vaguely similar airdrop technology to drop into a conveniently abandoned (yet pristine) cities to fight each other with vaguely similar armour and infantry.' I'm pretty good at suspending disbelief, but this one's too much of a stretch even for me.
Nonetheless, it does look gorgeous and I'm sure it gives a fun game so really, what do I know. Byron, you'll have to get another force done so we can have a game and convince me to throw in. :)
