After an all night paint and hangout session I have two finished minis for my Unity Council forces and a firm idea about how I want to paint these very excellent figures. I surprised myself with the accent color that I finally went with. After painting a yellow khaki color on the Unity Council Marine's boots and gloves I decided that it would look really good on some of the armor plates and could help tie the hardsuits in with the infantry.
|The hardsuit, now with yellow details.|
|While it may not be that obvious the infantryman is|
painted with lots of different shades of green.
|The difference between the olive webbing and more|
muted fatigues is easier to spot in this pic.
I think if I can get another solid painting session in on these minis I'll have the whole batch finished. Unfortunately once these are done there won't be anymore any time soon. Until the later part of the Afterlife Kickstarter release or the minis go on sale through Anvil Industry there won't be anymore available. Makes me a bit sad, but maybe I'll be able to stay ahead of these. Actually paint everything that I get for Afterlife, I know I don't need a heap of unfinished minis like all the GW stuff that I have. Thanks for reading and stay thirsty.
