I wanted to take a break from painting Zone Mortalis sections of our Underhive and chose to return to the civilians that I built a couple of years ago.
I decided to use the three models that I had built to experiment with some speed painting techniques...here's how they turned out...
'Old Jeb' - Grubber
'Greasey Joe' - Tech Monkey
Tasked with maintaining the Underhive's minor systems and repairing the various leaks that plague Rockridge, this Tech-Monkey is probably responsible for more leaks than he ever repairs. The creds he earns from his official work is supplemented by his thriving scrap side line, specialising in lead and copper piping.
Overall, I'm reasonably pleased with the results. It took 3 hours to paint two models which is incredibly quick for me.
When I do it again (and I will be doing it again) I will forgo the highlights before using the oil paint and add them after. I can go back anytime to increase the contrast but I'm happy enough for NPC's.
'Dredger' - Sump Diver
I'm still not convinced by Contrast paints, but this model has given me another idea on how to use them and there'll be more experiments before I decide whether or not they're my cup of tea.
Karina Page - Reporter
Karina's name is a byword for integrity and truth in the Underhive. The Reporter is often found all over the many districts that make up Rockridge much to the chagrin of the Mayor Ikabod Lickspittle.
Old Geb, the Tech-Monkey and Dredger were painted in the same amount of time that it took to paint Karina, so in that regards I consider the experiment a success.
They all look good enough for our adventures in the Underhive and it's another three models removed from my pile of shame.
