Firstly, a front and back view of the figures from the Armies Army Militia range. They are basically the same colour scheme as my other RUSK troops, to give some continuity, but this time with blue fatigues. I have tried to give a two-tone effect like modern sun glasses by adding a little gold/brass to the lenses, but it doesn't really show up. I have another 5 of these to paint.
A couple of views of Khurasan's Exterminators in Extreme Environment Suits. I have to declare that I have shamelessly stolen this colour scheme from a guy called Sebastian Stuart who has a site called eastern-empire.com. I'm not proud, but it was such a fantastic scheme that I couldn't help myself. If you have a minute, check his versions out- they are much better than these, with some clever designs on the helmet.
Here's the others from the set. These are probably my favourite miniatures from Khurasan.
That's the lot for this post. I had a bit of an epiphany whilst painting the RUSK Militia- I realised that I have probably been using paint that is too thick all these years, I guess because I didn't think it would cover so well thinned down, and was too lazy to give it a second coat. Now I realise that this will come as no surprise to you out there, but I'm a bit slow on the uptake. I can see now how it can produce a tidier result, with a little more control, and I can even try a bit of blending! Maybe I'm trying to run before I can walk........
So, thanks for looking in, if anyone is looking in. I want to get some pictures of Armies Army Spetsnaz on the blog before Christmas, but being the holiday season, I can see distractions ahead!
That being the case, I should like to wish all of you who visit a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year, with plenty of hobby related fun!
