Hello and welcome back!
I finally got the Shadow collective box painted, and boy what a treat!
To paint most of the remaining units, I used my newly bought speed paints from Army painter. Small review below:
+Super fast to paint with
~interesting intense colors (green & blue)
~brown much darker than advertised, and not exposing the edges
-reactivates if dried and gets wet again
-Grey and yellow pigment on the weaker side (as always)
Onward to the pictures!
Loving this paint scheme! Really pops on the table, and brings a splasch of colour to the otherwise drab table. I went with a sandy Tatooine base, as this makes all the shadow collective models really pop a lot more! Also this makes the Pykes & BSE stand out if taken in other armies.
Here I had to bust out another Contrast color, Black Templar. I felt that the Gravelord Grey included in the Army painter box really wasn’t Grey enough, just more like staining the model instead of painting it. Speed paints are also excellent for making gradients, the jetpack flames using Zealot Yellow, Fire Giant Orange and Blood Red. Should probably used a bit of black for the tips, but you learn!
hah, the Pyke capo really looks like a fly, rubbing his hands together… Can’t unsee that anymore.
Super happy with the Maul! Everything I set out to do with this models was a success! Head, saber gradient, and darksaber scratches!
hmm.. then again, maybe lets not look to closely at the paint job. Tabletop distance will do.
And last a group photo och the shady bunch!
Well, usually I don’t do this but here’s a list for using as much cards as possible and making an as expensive list as possible from the box:
This clocks in at 624p, so you won’t get a complete legal list from this box.
But buying another Shadow collective box, as they are so cheap, will give you a complete 800p army (- objetive, deplyment & condition cards) . Or say a AA-5 Party bus, fully kitted out.
See You next time!
