Project Nomads: Morlock


Lots were finished over the weekend, so here is the first item up to be shown.

Have to say he was a lot of fun to paint up. This Morlock with Chain Rifle has been used a lot, and he deserved a good paint job. So it is of good fortune that I have signed up for a Tale of Painters on Warseer that tries to push people to finish their projects. This one was the Tale of Skirmish Painters. I had entered in the last group as well, however I was throwing everything at it, and I think a few people got upset :) Something like 200+ models painted in the 6 months, which was more than what was painted by everyone else combined. Though it was not all of best/good quality, but more of just get it done quality in some parts.

This time around, there is a rule saying no more than 4 models a month :) Gee, wonder who that one was for ;) But it is ok, cause it means I need to focus on the quality aspect ( the goal of the tale ) and thus my Nomads will get a bit more love in the painting section because of it.

For the Morlock, I wanted something a bit different from the reds as he is not really part of the group. This allowed me to play around with some different colors on him, so I took the opportunity to try out some green and orange combos. I think it came out well actually.

Skin I tried to go with some extremes. Very light highlights, with a dark blue in the shadows near his mutations. Again, I think it came out well.

So more photos below, and more posts of other projects forthcoming..




Also some Oil washes were used again on the model and the base. Have to say that the base came out great with them, and just having the black around for the shadow sections is really making it easier and faster for me. Picked up some more to try other things in the coming months/weeks ahead. Let's see how it goes.

    1. Much luv to the man of the match most times.. how many times have you been victim to his chain rifle? Or engaged the pupniks from the smoke grenades he throws out? :) Expect to see his partner painted up soon!

    1. Thanks Ray.. I like the base quite a bit, and it is due to the oil colors. They really add some depth to the model that I can't get with acrylics it seems.

    1. Gracias JD, como siempre. Yo no estaba seguro acerca de la combinación verde / naranja, pero resultó ser mejor de lo que podíamos haber esperado.

    1. Thanks Jay.. the base is a resin cast that I picked up a while ago. Just great for that broken city feel that I wanted for this faction.

    1. Thanks Brummie.. I really like it, and I like how he plays in game also! This is now OOP though, and they have 4 new ones to replace it. Knowing how well they play, I might need to pick up the new guys and have 6 in total! Complete murder for my opponents but sooooo nice to have :)
