It seems like I’m on a bit of a roll at the moment. As well as cracking on with painting I’ve also managed to get a few Escher gangers assembled. One of my big sticking points with the Eschers has been the repetition of hairdos across the gang. With each ganger having such showy set-piece locks the duplication is all the more obvious, as compared to, for example, the uniform mohawks of the Goliath or wall-to-wall baldness of the Delaque. Regular readers will know I couldn’t tolerate the idea of cloned hairstyles existing in the gang but trying to create alternatives is a herculean task. Grafting on Dark Eldar hair is a time-consuming and challenging job and other alternatives that really play to the style of the Eschers are thin on the ground. Needless to say when the new head upgrades were released from Forge World last week I really wanted to give them a go. Following a flurry of assembly over the weekend I have to say I’m really quite impressed. Here’s the latest recruits to the gang.
Hopefully by allowing me to make the gang as I’ve always envisioned it this should be the spur I need to get some more of them painted over the next little while.
