L to R: Steel Warrior, Huscarl, Stormrage Veteran
I try to avoid going back to work on miniatures that are already based, varnished and photographed. Its hard to justify returning to acceptably finished items when I have so many other things waiting for paint.
I made an exception with this Huscarl, Steel Warrior and Stormrage Veteran though. Something about the plain old metal paint job on the hammers on these miniatures was bugging me. They were too fantasy looking and not science-fantasy enough, although I admit thats a pretty fine, almost non-existent line.
So I added some red glowing bits to the hammers. Rather than paint them glowing from within like lava as most ForgeFather heat hammers are done I painted a couple of bits of the weapons sort of like a red LED, like a lot of the techie trim on my Ursa Miner models. It also ties them to Dark Lord Prowse a little more, although that is more of a happy coincidence than anything else.

My first DreadBall Giant figure is this guy, a Nameless (as in the DreadBall/Warpath/Deadzone faction) Spawn that I finished over the weekend. He doesn’t have a proper name. Im leaning towards christening the big fella “Lester”.
