As I plan to build a fairly tank heavy army (current count including transports puts that count at 12!) I figured I would need someone to repair damage so I picked up some Enginseers. Unfortunately I picked these up before the plastic one was released – so I probably will have to buy the new one at some point.
The quality of the metal cast is not great but I think I managed to make these look OK. Strangely enough because I didn’t really like the model itself I wasn’t too bothered about how it turned out – which led to me to feel really free to play around. The results ended up being one of my favourites so far.
The cloaks were a lot of fun, not just for painting in the details around the trim but I also tried using different colours for the highlights and recesses from the base. It may not be very obvious but in the shadows of the cloaks I have used a little purple and on the highlights a little orange. Even on the metal I used blue rather than black or brown.
The shoulder light also gave me a little chance to try my OSL techniques with some good success I think.
What do you think?
