Life's never easy for redshirts, even when you paint them orange! Here's the first member of my Sanctioned Privateer crew for Rogue Trader/Necromunda/Confrontation, and actually the first ever Imperial Guardsman I've painted.
|Still in need of a matt varnish to flatten the gloss from an ink wash over the armour, but otherwise done.|
It's a figure from the old Metal Magic "Spacelords" range, now being produced by Doug at EM4 miniatures. You have to email him directly for them, but they are so characterful and just scream "big bad universe" at me.
Realising he was my first guardsman inspired me to set up an "I've never painted a ... before" painting challenge for Rogue Trader over on the Oldhammer Forum, blatantly copying Colin's fantasy version that is well underway.
His fellows are coming along and should be ready to join him behind that ruined generator any day now.
