Ok, let's put an end to wave 1 of Troll Outpost's Oldhammer fauna releases :D
The only minis I had left were two Piscean Warriors. Let me show you the pre-painting state:
|You could say this is a silverfish. It's a fish. And looks silver.|
I really was betting that everyone would paint their Pisceans in grey or any dark colour, resembling eels, but I did want a totally different aspect. Fortunately, Axiom from Magpie and Old Lead proved me wrong and painted his own in an outstanding both natural and alien style. I was also aiming for a colourful style, but... my own way.
|A fish walking down the street|
The pics are horrible. You have to look really close to see there are black stripes and that there is actually a shadow and highlights work there. Sigh...
|I feel like a fish out of water|
Also if you look close (or at least take my word), the backpack has some pink-ish colour trying to mimic some kind of pearl surface, in order to connect the sea theme all in a pack. Ok, ok, I tried...
|You think I walk funny? I walk better than you swim, furry mammal!|
I guess you might have not caught the visual reference for this guy. Ehm... I hope this one leaves no doubt about that...
|Nemo? No, I'm not related to Captain Nemo, don't know what you mean|
In order to give a slight variety, I replaced the gun with a bolter. Quick and easy. Also tried the same pearl-ish effect on the backpack and used the same colour for the boots/gloves in order to give a group idea.
|I've been looking for my kindred so long I have even evolved to an amphibian|
So I have these two guys ready to see some action wherever there is enough water for them to feel comfortable!
|...Are...Are you my conscience?|
I'm in utter need for some more different Pisceans to add some variety! The possibilities are endless!
