A GW Lost Patrol WIP


Recommended Posts

Late last year I bought a copy of the Lost Patrol game by Games Workshop. In my rush to play the game with my sons we used bones models as proxies. Over Christmas I had some time to look at getting the models together.

 

I must confess the plastic models GW produce are really clean with few mold lines.

 

I managed to get a batch built up ready for painting.

These models were then given an undercoat of grey and then I selected the infestation markers to paint my chosen colour scheme.

 

I decided in a fairly traditional colour scheme as this would tie in with the Genestealers.

From the original base coat of purple I went dry brushed up to a cream colour.

Finally I added a glaze of purple to tone it down and then added detail for the teeth.

These now require a coat of varnish and they are done. I have decided to use a gloss varnish to give them a wet looking sheen.

So after the infestation markers I moved on to the 12 Genestealers. These were nice detailed modeles and the were given a similar paint scheme to the other Tyranids.

First off a coat of purple and then a highlight up to white.

I forgot how much batch painting can be tedious but have persevered as these are nicely detailed models.

A bit more progress to show in this post I was giving a red glaze to the claws but I wasn't sure I liked it and so I opted to keep six in one style and six the other. Here is a couple of comparison shots this is before they all get a Druchii Violet.
