Ferox Posted April 16, 2010 Share Posted April 16, 2010 So my local FLGS scored a bunch of Rackham Confrontation blisters for silly cheap, and I bought four of them. Including these guys, which're a bit more magepunk than I usually paint but are utterly gorgeous sculpts: Surprisingly, they went together pretty easily. Nearly everything's pinned; the small joints between the polearms and the hands are not, but with two points of support for the voulges I'm okay with that. I was thinking of draping some green-stuff ribbon banners over the polearm shafts to keep them from bending, but decided it was too much trouble. Confrontation blisters come with a little rulebook, much the way Magic starter decks did. (Maybe they still do? Last time I bought a core-set starter was in, uh, Unlimited.) Of course, the book's in French, which I read fairly fluently fifteen years ago, and it's laid out in a "gritty, edgy" faux-medieval font with medium-contrast art behind it (much like a Privateer Press rulebook). Challenging. I wouldn't mind having these guys painted up by, say, Sunday. I figure I'll use brass for most of the metal bits rather than steel -- I haven't worked with large chunks of "brown" metal before, so shading it should be a new and interesting experience. Basecoats tomorrow? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
