On the Painting Table: Beastmen Gors!
Continuing my slow build of my brand new Beastmen army...
This is my first official core choice and as such is my first real step to getting a useable army.
The best element for me about Beastmen is the background. I don’t know what it is exactly, but If anything it’s an attraction to the principle of the beast running rampant without pause for morals or decorum, with no though for the harm they do to others.
And I quite like the models too.
The flesh was done with Kommando Khaki inked down with Gryphonne Sepia and then highlighted back up with Khaki and then Deneb Stone. The fur is brown with two black ink washes.
For the weapons I painted them boltgun metal and inked them with black. Simple as.
As I’m building the army slowly I’ve based these chaps on a five by ten movement tray. I’ll use that for something else eventually; probably these guys will end up as a twenty strong unit. But I want to get playing ASAP.
