I've gotten my Stormvermin assembled, sanded/corked and primed. I've got to
say I'm pleased with my pace so far but real life is always right around the corner waiting to bite you in the ass.
I see very little hobby time in the near future, for who knows how long really. By that logic I can't afford to repaint miniatures should I make a poor choice in judgement. I'm getting ahead of myself, let me explain:
My army colours are blue and yellow, here are some old army shots;
Perhaps I am just a wee bit biased but I think the army colours are dominant despite the different shades of fur/skin and metallics.
But it became almost monotonous. So I changed it up, starting with my plague monks. In my little bubble of Warhammer Fantasy plague monks worship nurgle, and so I wanted them to look nice and drab. I used with Dheneb stone and Devlan Mud wash while picking out every scab, boil and tumor(?!) in a creamy red.
I really like how they turned out and their colours were neutral enough that the unit just sorta blends in, I painted the plague censer bearers to match.
When I'd finished my clanrats it was time for my black skaven.
I'd always loved the red stormvermin in 4th edition, I just changed up the colour locations but retained a similar palette.
As an ode to one of my warhammer heroes the one and only Pete Foley!
I've always loved the look of this unit, so much so in fact that I used a wizard to test a colour scheme;
So I pose this to you my loyal subscribers; is a third unit out of army colours too much? Will my army end up looking like a bunch of miniatures just thrown together?
Or am I being OCD?
