So I got my head down and painted up a model a week and here are the results with some commentary! First - the team shot:
Dirge got the same scheme as Obulus' clock - on reflection he looks a bit too dark but I don't want him to be brightly colored so he'll have to do! The bases by the way are simply the resin bases that came with the Kickstarter. The flock is a bit of a modeling cop out but this is a sports game and I like the simple way it looks.
At this point I did the goal! I always knew it was going to be a big sharks jaw mounted on a corpse cart - it was just a question of modeling it! I found a 3D image of a sharks jaw as an STL file. It was a bit model so I used a free bit of software to shrink it down and then had it 3D printed. The cart came from "Gok" from the Busihdo range of miniatures so I pinned it on - used green stuff to hide the pin in a bit of wood and got to work painting:
I am very pleased with how it turned out! Back to the team and it was Cossets turn:
I decided on deep red for the teams 'uniform'. With her loose ribbons I kept them the same color as Obulus' to help give the team a look of unity. I didn't look at the artwork before painting her so she ended up with less skin on her from on show. For her face I wanted her very pale with some blood splatters!
The rest of the team are coming in part two soon.....
