I’ve painted another model for the I’ve never painted a… before club over on the Oldhammer forums. Actually, I painted three – but here’s the first one of three war apes.
I’ve had these guys for yonks, and always liked the sculpt but abhorred the original paintjob. I have a tray of DDM prepaints that I’ve rebased and I’m going to repaint at some point or other. These guys were on it. Now they’re painted, in the cupboard, with only a few measly hours on them all in all. The paintjob was very quick; it’s just a base coat that have been drybrushed up and washed over with a final highlighting drybrush on top of that. Still looks so much better than the original.
As I mentioned, I did two more. Here’s a shot of all three. I went with slightly different base coats and highlights on each, since they’re already identically posed. As you’ll see in my coming posts, these guys will fit just as well in a fantasy setting as in a scifi game.
