Scotland, but nowhere near my rulebook

After what's less of a "hiatus" and more of a "Decade long complete stop" I've started painting again, inspired in no small part by my Necromunda campaign against Flinty. And, as we all know, no project is ever REALLY finished - so my Press Gang can be viewed as "The Story So Far".

Time for some hangers on. I've had this guy kicking about for a LONG time, and he looks like a good choice for a Slopper.



Let's see if I can still do this painting thing.

(Incidentally - keeping Foundation paints in a shed for two years, subjected to alternating freezing and high temperatures? Does them no favours. Round pot paints from the early 90s? They're still going strong. Quick trip to GW to get some new paints was required...)

Near Jupiter.

Welcome back and it looks great. If you wanted you could add some washes or some thing to add shadows in the recessed areas, but other wise looks good how it is right now.

Oh, goodness no. This is only about 30% done. It's already washed and since the photo I've added the eyes (which was an absolute SWINE to do, and required about 17 attempts) and brought up the skin tone a couple of layers for highlighting. The orange is actually washed, needs a couple more highlights. The robes are going to be white - because I've never painted "clean" white before - so that'll be a good few layers as well. Not sure what colour to make the centre of the hat and the shoes - thinking green.

W00t back in the painting chair. Looking good so far.

Is his name Ploppy the Slopper, whose son will rise to the heady ranks of head jailer?

I have no idea what you're talking about.

(Googles)

You're faster on Blackadder than me!

No, he IN NO WAY resembles disgraced former Guilder Aurelius Tennhauser, former master of the Unpleasance Dome. There is NO BASIS to the belief that The Press Gang occasionally hire him for his underhive contacts more than his food and that his Wyrd daughter has also been seen freelancing as a local healer.

People who make such accusations have been found turned inside out in local allyways.

His name is Goldie T, proprieter of Goldie's Rat Kebabs.

Would you buy a used rat kebab from this man? Youd better or his daughter will look at you until your kidneys come out your nose.

Good choice on the hat. All gold was a bit overpowering and the blue helps link to the rest of the costume. Still looks a bit clean for the ubderhive, but I guess with that amount of rat based income he can hire lackeys to.get dirty for him

Cheers, dude. Yeah, he's clean because he's rich (and I've never painted white fabric before and wanted to give it a go). Plus, all my gang are pretty bright - I figure that these are gang fighters, proudly wearing their colours to show their allegiance rather than sensible people wearing as much urban camo as possible or downtrodden serfs!

Yeah, good call on the blue on the hat.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Graphite,

You can really see the improvement between this model and your original gang.

Cheers,

And I think I can call this done. Goldie T is ready to, well, cook a healthy-ish meal.
