WIP Wednesday: Plague Drones
Progress on the Plague Drones continues.. these are quick snap shots from my phone of the models..
Biggest thing I have done so far is the riders and the bases now.
Taking comments from my cohorts over at Brushbrothers&Sisters was to add some color variation on the models. So I have added some purple to the shadows of the riders. Not that easy to see in the photos, but I do like the effect in person, and will do the same with the drones themselves soon. I also threw in some brown washes to sections as well.
The riders came out a bit more yellow due to my mix, but I am OK with that.
Biggest thing I am not sure on yet is the horns. Whether or not I should paint them up in black or fade the more to a brighter color like the bodies. Thoughts?
More photos below..
By the way.. these are really not in the style that I learned from Germany.. mostly this is my older style of which I am trying to go a bit quicker with them as they are gaming pieces. That being said, it can't be helped to update them a bit with some of the tricks I learned.
Last piece I would like to update is the shells, where I might tint the white sections to be blue. Still on the fence on that, but it might occur still.. will see!
