From SimonM: "Warlord Games" The Silence (15 Points)

"This world is ours. We have ruled it since the wheel and the fire. We have no need of weapons."
These "finely-sculpted" and 40mm tall "pewter" models of three Silents are produced by “Warlord Games” and are designed for use with the company's Doctor Who Miniatures Game "Into The time Vortex." Genetically engineered to be the confessional priests of the Church of the Silence, these mouthless creatures first appeared in the 2011 BBC television story “The Impossible Astronaut”, and were "capable of obliterating enemies by absorbing electrical energy from the air and discharging it from their hands at a vastly more potent level."

Initially primed with two layers of "Citadel" Chaos Black, these miniatures were all heavily dry-brushed with "Vallejo" Heavy Charcoal and then washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil. Their discoloured shirts were subsequently 'picked out' with a combination of "Vallejo" Iraqi Sand and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade. Whilst their ties were simply re-painted with more "Citadel" Chaos Black. Finally these members of the "religious order created by Tasha Lem" had their skin painted with "Vallejo" Heavy Warmgrey and washed with "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade. These areas were then highlighted with some additional "Vallejo" Heavy Warmgrey, before receiving a final wash of "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade in order to 'blend' the pigments together and create some shadowing.

Simon, these fellows are delightfully creepy and even more so with your pallet choice. I have not seen that episode, but they reminded me of the fellows immediately from the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Silence episode. I like these fellows just as much as your WIP shots which is one of my favorite things about your posts.
Very well done!
