Warming up the Brushes
In an effort to paint more and button-mash less I painted up these excellent Critical Mass mercenaries you see here. A couple of months back I posted the Combined Army Infinity figs I whipped up, but those don't really count. I kind of blacked out at the painting desk and when I came to they were already done.
These guys were different. In an effort to both paint more and kind of revive the cold husk that was my starport project I dove right in. Lots of ideas started cooking as soon as I got some paint on them, which is what I was hoping for!
This batch is the first half of a well equipped pirate crew that will be squared away solidly in the universe I've yet to build. They'll have their own ship and everything. Next up will be the rest of this crew. After that I've got some great figs lined up sculpted by my buddy Eli over at I See Lead People. Then I guess it's time to get into that massive starport queue I typed up so long ago!
Thanks for checking these out, they were a blast to paint up. I should also point out that the Instagram feed was blowing up with WIP pics of these over the last week or so. I'll try to get a post up with more details photos and angles, plus some fluff material to boot soon. Until then, enjoy!
