Dirty Rebels

Ok, so I've not been inactive. I know my posts have become less regular, and to be honest, it will wax and wane.

But the reason its been a week or so is because I've got 100 guardsmen to paint, and there's no use just blogging everytime I just finish one. So the first 20 are done.

These are some examples of the look I'm going for. I quite like the purple hued skin, it adds the weirdness factor traitors should have. It why I chose the catchans, because as everyone knows, no-one actually has arms like that, but just maybe, with a bit of warp taint...

The mud is a mix of windor & newton's sand effect gel and burnt umber acrylic paint, heaped on after painting and allowed to dry. Its the same as my hounds from an earlier post.

I'm also aware I could do with some chaos stars and whatnot, but that will probably come later on.

Till next time...


  1. Oh yes, very nice and original.

    I love how a simple head swap and new muted colour scheme has completely altered the base Catachan models.

    Great stuff! Anymore in the pipeline? :)

  2. Yeah, I've got about 80 more to go... keep an eye out!!!
