|Prowlers to the Rescue! Pencil for scale|
Yesterday Ben gave me an awesome present, remember a while ago when we bought the starter set for DropZone Commander, well he gave me a pack of Prowlers, in my opinion one of the best things about playing the Scourge. It is not easy playing the villain of the setting, what with their Yeerk like alien brain slugs and creepy conquering other worlds for new hosts culture, but they have the playstyle best suited for me, and I love their aesthetic, plus I always end up playing the villain. Ben has put me in charge (ok I enthusiastically volunteered) of painting, I am both excited and very intimidated. See, Hawk Wargames (the people who put out DZC) have some of the most detailed miniatures I have ever seen, and they are in 10mm scale meaning that they are TINY. A single Prowler can sit comfortably on a quarter, and most of that size is their legs. Since the vehicles are essentially machines that are fused with the Scourge in this bio-mechanical shell, I want to blend machine and alien life-form in my paint scheme, I finally have it all planned out in my head...now I just need to get the paint.
|First art in a decade? Summoner Wars fan art :P I has priorities|
So that is my Saturday! I am waiting for the mail to run, sipping some Fuding Shou Mei White Tea Cake (2013) from Teavivre (review incoming next week!) and then I am probably going to take a nice long nap.
