|A Reaper bolt thrower from GW.|
These colors grew somewhat organically. I didn't really plan the color scheme ahead of time. I was sure I did not want any purple in them, but other than that I didn't give it much thought. They strike me as sea based colors, so this army is obviously a raiding force.
My sons and I are going to be playing a Dragon Rampant campaign with whatever models strike our fancy. Rhys, who is 13, is in love with the Dark Elves, hence the first few units to be painted for this challenge.
This particular model is one of my favorite in the line. He seems like a great hero or messenger, as well as an artillery commander. He's really characterful.
This lady is scowling evilly at us all. She's also got some great detail on her and was fun to paint. The castings are very clean and crisp.
The bolt thrower is also a great model. It oozes menace and threat. It's one of my favorite parts of this army.
The basework is fairly arid. I didn't want this dread army to be based in lush green fields.
It's great to have you back to the Challenge, Aaron!
Wow, that is a nasty looking artillery piece, and I mean that in a good way.
The red bolts with the turquoise fletching is a great focal point and I also like the black woodwork against the silver metalwork. Very sharp indeed.
I can't tell you how many times I put out a too-large blob of paint and then decide to unpack stuff to use it up on. Too funny.
20 Points for your opening gambit on the roster. Well done, Aaron!
