Hey. I want to show to you some minis of my elder army. You know what they say. The shoemaker wife is always the worst shod. There is always not
enough time to paint own minis. I have only 25% painted elder army. And it isn’t high quality work. Shame on me. I want to show you my base painting scheme on some sample
My HQ. Very old Farseer, converted Avatar of Khane (I really didn't like his original head), Spiritseer and brand new custom made Autarch with warp jump generator. I'm working on jetbike version of Farseer and Autarch.
Warp Spiders and converted Dark Reapers. I really don't like GW models of them. So i made my own Reapers.
And last but not least Wraithblades.
Hey. This post is about: Whyyyyy I did it to one of my miniatures.
In my opinion Illic nightspear was designed to be a sort of long range assassin. Long range invisible hunter. Why invisible? Because he has “shrouded” rule. So I was wondering how shrouded model looks like. He isn’t 100% invisible. So maybe he has a cloaking device like a Yautja (Predator)? He is sort of Predator. Not strong like one but he has similar equipment.
Let start of some thin little. Yes… A legendary elder shuriken weapon. It fire with mono-molecular disc. Shurikens.
Well predators use shurikens or Smart-Disc. It’s not perfect mach I admit. The smart disc is more similar to Silent death used by Jain Zar.
Illic has a power blade and predator has his wrist blades.
Next up he has his Remnant of Glory, known as Voidbringer. His personal predator’s Plasma Caster. Voidbringer has chance to kill almost everything by 1 shot AP2. 6 to wound roll = instant death rule. And he always shot a precision shot.
This is how I see hit by Voidbringer.
So I painted his coat to look like predator’s active camouflage when it’s turning off. Because of his “shrouded’ rule and “Walker of the hidden path”. Illic can infiltrate anywhere on the map. Like a predator. He is always close. And taking enemies one after another.
What do you think about my Illic? Comments are most welcome.
