Default Painting Para Bellum's Conquest! - Spire Brutes and Clone Archers for starters

I am so lucky to have been sent some pre release miniatures for Para Bellum and River-horse Studios exciting new game CONQUEST. (rules being written by the notorious Alessio Calvatore)

Feel free to ask about the game or mini's and I'll tell you what I can for the moment. Otherwise you can follow the games progress by liking their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/ParaBellumWarGames/

They've blown me away... see for yourselves... I can't wait to paint these over the coming weeks :D







And this guy... he's on a 53mm base :O

So taking inspiration from the original artwork of the spire clone archers, I went with a skin tone wet blended with shades of leather and bone...

Pail skin... I'm guessing dark, muted fabrics next. Again looking to the artwork for inspiration.

Bit gutted that I only had time to get this far before goin back to work.... 240miles from home

On the plus side. My camera has better resolution than my eyes XD just noticed the bit on the foot/foot wraps that need touching up.

The brown bits are based to be built up to bone

I've hit a milestone :D

Base coats on the Spire are 100% done. Onto dry brushing, shading and highlighting ;)

Need to wet the Hundred Kingdoms to the same stage first though

Base coats....



One glazed do you don't think I've gone mental with the green XD



The whole project overview today;

(don't forget, you can follow Conquest here: www.facebook.com/parabellumwargames)

Right! That's got the base coats finished on all 91 models, here's a sample of them at this stage:

(remember that greens appear bright but will be balanced out with a glaze)



Also the brouns of the Spire will be built up to a bone effect like the earlier shields....



It's all a bit flat looking atm but that's base coats for you. Cant wait to give these some depth and start tying those colours together....

Was about to start shading and shizzle until I realised I haden't base coated my shields properly.

A cheeky hour this afternoon solved that little oversight! I can finally crack on this evening... now what do I watch while I paint?... thinking R.I.P.D.

"St Lazareth, be our shield from the horrors that lurk in the night....."
