Citadel has just released (to pre-order - they're coming out next week) a new line of Contrast paints which behave rather differently than conventional minis paints in a number of respects.
I recently got a chance to play around with them at my local Warhammer store, and wrote down some initial impressions.
Has anyone else gotten a chance to mess around with these, and if so, what was your thoughts on them?
(my favorite result down below)
"One of my favourite range of figures ever was Citadel's 1980's licensed "Lord Of The Rings" minis. I have finally decided to get all the miniatures I own painted up (over time) & try to acquire the ones which are missing from my collection (& paint them up too!)". Here is my next completed mini - Treebeard: Mighty Ent.
I tried to keep the colours as close to Treebeard's description in the book. I guess this mini sculpt may seem a little dated by todays wonderfully elaborate standards but I think it has it's own charm especially in his warm characterful face.
Comments & thoughts always welcome!
Thanks for looking & "Hrum Hoom"!
So, uh, these are actual actual Space Marines from Citadel. I got a little sprue of them at Free Comics Day a year or two ago. The date on the sprue said 2005, so perhaps they are obsolete models.
I had plans to do them up oddly, maybe sparkly purple or something, but then someone running a game I'm in said "Hey, do you have any space marines?"
So I said yes and painted them up bang-up average for Space Marines, going by random images I Googled.
Well, almost. The upside-down omega logo kind of insulted my linguistic sensibilities.
So I painted one with an upside-down omega, one with an upside-down lambda (symbol of LGBT rights), and one with an upside-down omicron (joke).
There's a little tiny bit of NMM gold on their can't-lift-their-shoulders-armor-pieces.
