Citadel Adventurers Starter Set #3

Finished the Expedition Pack mule. Didn't follow the artwork exactly as it was a bit too much of the same brown all over. So went for different browns on the packing.

Next up is the wizard - see you soon!

A lot of fun to paint and nice change to my chaos stuff. Quite challenging to switch though to a more natural look so had to spend quite a of of time to figure out how to paint skin again :)

I have also tried to mimic the look of these characters from the box art using the same colors and stuff. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you find these enjoyable!

New Project: Citadel Adventurers Starter Set

Hello!

Stared a new project recently. Something quite different from my usual chaos stuff. The Adventurers Starter Set released by Citadel in 1985!

Citadel Adventurers Starter Set from 1985
A great set of miniature that give the impression of being sculpted in the early slotta days.

The plan is to paint them according to the box art and here is the first one out. The young fighter. As the front of the shield wasn't visible this gave me some creative freedom.

40k Nurgle Ultra-Inferno Destructor Demon

Put a lot of effort into this one and made a very detailed paint job.

The build:
The base in a Space Marine torso where I attached an old Epic Reaver titan weapon to the groin. Used some various bits to create an "arm-leg", a bit like the medieval mythical skiapods/monopods. I only wanted one limb so the second arm socket instead received a torch and flanked by an old terminator breast shield.

Important was to make it look like it wasn't about the fall over. So a bit of leaning and the hand under the body and not next to it made the trick I think (not such this is capture in the pics though)

The second part of the build was to create a texture, especially since some bits are plastic and quite flat and dull. Used mainly stomped on liquid green stuff.

The paint job:
The colors are the same style as the rest of the warband. Put a lot of more time into this one though (quite  motivated by that I built the thing myself) and did a very detailed paint job using the texture I created.

Well, lets stop the mumbling and get right to it.
