Lyran Guards company
« on: 11 July 2022, 05:37:33 »
Finally finished my long under work Lyran Guards company.

Pursuit lance has a Vulcan, Wolfhound, Commando, and Firestarter Omni.

Battle lance has a Caesar, Orion, Hatchetman and Axman.

Assault lance has a Cyclops, BattleMaster, Zeus and Banshee.

Some are plastics from the older Alpha Strike lance packs, others IWM/Ral Partha Europe metallics. The BattleMaster is the previous Introductory Box Set's premium Beemer (that set's Mad Cat got cut for parts).

I've reposed the BattleMaster to bit a bit more dynamic. A cut at waist, rotated torso, both arms cut at elbow and bent.

White primer, Talassar Blue Contrast and Apothecary White Contrast, drybrushed with VGC Electric Blue and VGC Dead White. No masking, freehand only so there's some smudging on some lines. Some details in black and gunmetal, not really visible here but i drybrushed some gunmetal to elbow and knee joints for some 'Mechs for wear and tear. Bases painted black and Army Painter Brown Battlegrounds for effect. Satin varnish, probably should do another layer and do cockpits in gloss but that can wait.
The BattleMaster, Cyclops, Zeus, Caesar and Firestarter got jeweling (attempts) to cockpits, some others have attempts that didn't really succeed at all, others i just skipped over.
But they're good enough for me, intended these for playing pieces more than display anyway.

EDIT I didn't do any wash on these. Figured Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade would be too strong for the white area. But i think these ended up fine without, guess Contrast Paints deal with it?
EDIT I did let the Contrasts to pool a bit too much at times, should be a bit more patient and take care.
