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!

  1. They're fantastic and very luminous. This has probably been pointed out to you already but the join line where you're glued the two body halves together is really spoiling these.

    1. Thanks Garfy.. that was the plan to make them bright! But yes, I need to figure out how to fix that gap.. as they get brighter it gets more visible!

  3. The models really pop in those colours. Really nice. The mould line is annoying as the models look so good. I think the horns should be done in the same black as the drones to tie the two together. Really nice work.

    1. Thanks Runit.. will have to take out the putty, fill it up, and redo that section of the models.. let's see how good my airbrush cover-up ability is :)

  5. Nice painting - I think the slight variations to the main colors is a good tip. The bases look great too. Dean

    1. Thanks DeanM.. I think it helps to separate the models from each other.. that and I picked up the wrong bottle when doing the riders so.. but then again there are never really accidents in painting, just creative mistakes ;)
