As I no longer have access to the original blueish grey that was used for the first half of the army, and as a close but not close enough match would REALLY bother me, it was always going to be a yellow base coat for these guys
With their black power packs and shoulder pads though, it at least keeps some ties to the original half of the army.
With base coating done its either weapons then wash or wash then weapons…
In the end, it was weapons wash and back to weapons again… All because I was going daft painting ten silver swords in a row over that vivid yellow colour. After dumbing it down with a yellow/orange ink wash it was much easier on the eyes.
