We’ve seen plenty of stupid, sweaty Goliath boys recently, not to mention an outbreak of foul heretics, now it’s time to give the Eschers the limelight they deserve. Given my self-imposed exile from the brighter end of the colour spectrum and my preference for grubby darkness these were a great change of pace and I really enjoyed the challenge of combining the guady peacocking of the Eschers with the filth of the Underhive.
First of the ladies to be finished is Amilita, who went on to acquit herself admirably in our practice game, hiding out of sight behind a barricade and letting her unpainted sisters get shot at before popping up to snipe at least one unsuspecting Goliath.
To be honest she isn’t quite as nice as I’d hoped, I accidentally decapitated her when I dropped her on the floor and I’ve never managed to get her looking right since. Never mind, on the tabletop she looks fine but the close-ups I’ve taken here are a little unflattering.
Her gang-sister “Electric” Zoya I think came together rather nicely even if I did have my heart in my mouth throughout the leopard-print.
All being well I’d like to get a couple more finished by the end of the week, who knows – I may even be able to rope in my partner to assist.
