The Starstriders!

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone!

Been looking forward to painting these ever since the first blurry photos leaked.

 

Haven't been able to do much the last couple of days (stupid back), but I made up for that today:-

Finished off her jacket by shading it with 1:1 Dark Green/Scarlett Red, highlighting with 2:1 Dark Green/Ochre Yellow and glazing it with thinned Dark Green.

The trim got a Brown Wash, and then was tidied up with layers of Red Orange and 1:1 Red Orange/Ochre Yellow.

 

She then got trousers (Iraqi Sand > 2:1 Off-white/Iraqi Sand > Sepia Wash), then I did all her body armour (Bronze > Brown Wash > Bronze > 1:1 Bronze/Aluminium) with Leather Brown Straps.

 

Finally, made a start on her helmet. The decoration is the same Bronze scheme as her armour, but the helmet itself is Bonewhite > Brown Wash > Bone White > Sepia Wash.

Still need to do the visor and figure out what to do with her mouth (it's rather miscast, so I don't know if I should try to paint it as skin, or pretend she's got a scarf pulled over it.)

Painted her visor (Night Blue > 1:1 Night Blue/Off-white), then I painted her mouth area Stone Grey with a couple brushtipfuls of Pure Black and gave it a Black Wash.

Don't think it did much to disguise her missing mouth, but hopefully when I paint her hands my eyes will stop seeing her as some weird grey alien.

Thanks!

She gives me Buck Rogers vibes (I think that's the right old sci-fi series).

Painted her hair (Hexed Lichen > 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Off-white > Black Wash), and her belt and boots (1:1 Brown Leather/Scarlett Red > 1:1:1 Brown Leather/Scarlett Red/Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash. Plus Brassy Brass decorations and 1:1:1 Brown Leather/Scarlett Red/Pure Black for the void in her holster and boot soles).

Painted her guns (2:1 Stone Grey/Pure Black drybrushed with Stone Grey and given a Black Wash plus Brassy Brass decorations) and did her grenade and backpack generator in Oily Steel (Plus a Vermillion button on the grenade).

Added a Sky Blue light to her generator, and then finally painted her hands (1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin > 1:1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin).

 

Then it was just the base to do (Cork Brown > Iraqi Sand Drybrush > Bonewhite Drybrush > Sepia Wash with Brown/Orange grass) and she's done:-

Working on Dr. Helen Matronic, medical officer!

 

So far I've done her skin (1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin > 1:1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin) and lips (1:1:1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Hexed Lichen).

Painted her fancy helmet thing.

The Oily Steel parts are done, the Bronze parts need highlighting as does her big Magic Blue lens.

      Presenting the 'Shroomancer, part of the Gooblapalooza set from Games Workshop who are all Goblin Wizards with different powers. This one alters the reality around him by getting really high on mushrooms, considering his "creations" appear to be attacking him this doesn't seem to be the most reliable of powers.
       
      Really pleased with how this one turned out, I think the super cartoony sculpt just gelled well with the way I paint.

      Presenting The Engineer, this hulking monstrosity of flesh and steel was originally another Nurgle-themed baddie from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset (like his friend Screamin' Eddie).
       
      Not quite as happy with this one as I was with Eddie, for all his details he ended up kinda boring looking, but I was rather pleased with how his fiery belly turned out.

      Presenting Screamin' Eddie, purveyor of the finest human meat to be found in all the Radlands! 
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this guy. Originally, he was one of the big Nurgle baddies from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset, but I thought he worked well as a more generic Post-Apoc mutant (they all could really).
