I've never painted dark skin before, so I used this little guy as a test piece. I repainted and re-glazed him quite a few times, so I can't really recreate the exact recipe. It really felt like entering new territory for me, and often the paints did things that surprised me and looked very unlike dark skin (I'm looking at you, RMS Walnut!). I'm sure I'll revisit that subject, there is so much more to learn and find out! Also, this guy is really shiny, my Anti Shine didn't do it's magic this time. 🙁
So I'm going to see if putting together a diary helps me with motivation in getting this army completed in time for a tournament in January 2020. First of all, the idea - in Canberra, Australia we have a convention (Cancon) every January, it's been going for something like 30+ years, and for about the last decade we've had a WarGods tournament running. After a Kickstarter I have an Amazon warband sitting in bare metal so I decided that for 2020 I'll take that Warband. First of all I have to work out the army list, then prepare the models for painting. So, onto the army list: Amazon Demigod of Hecate, Ka 2, second Ka power Skin of Marble Still have to work out what to equip her with, but with the Ka power she can't take armour... 13 Hellhounds - using Reaper's WarPugs - 12 War Pugs based in pairs with a Reaper Foo Dog as the leader 5 x Outriders - Horse Archers 5 x Outriders - Horse Archers 12 x Peltasts Mother of Serpents (effectively a Minoan snake priestess) That takes me to about 905 from a maximum of 1750 points, so I'll need to work out what to use the remaining points for, I do need to take some basic warriors, which will set me back 25pts/model (so I can potentially take 30 of them), and I may take some Raiders instead of outriders (they are spear-armed cavalry) Anyway, I'll try and get some photos of the basic models tomorrow and go from there...
I collect the Croc Games figures even though I don't play the game. Here's my latest, the color scheme inspired by the web store example, but adjusted to fit in more with my Warlord Nefsokar army. I will proxy this Thoth for the Reaper Thoth. In Warlord Thoth is a construct, but I see him here more as a summoned celestial avenger.
