Assault Kommander Strakhov and Kommandos

Finished!  I tried to get lots of dark colors in there without the mini looking too dark.  I’m very pleased with how they came out.

Red: MSP Red Shadow highlighting up to P3 Khador Base

Brown: MSP Walnut Brown highlighting up through Ruddy Leather and Oiled Leather (and maybe some Burnt Orange)

Blue: MSP Nightmare Blue up to Dragon Blue and Ghost White

Blond Triad for the Hov’s hair, Citadel red-gold for insignia and buttons, and VGA Chainmail silver for the guns.  Some wood color on the gun stock.

Assault Kommander Strakhov and Kommandos

WIP of my second project for November.  The goal is for there to be lots of dark colors, so I went with dark blue, dark brown and dark red.  The guns will be a darker metal color as well.  I plan to pop the highlights of each of those colors a bit so the overall look isn’t just “dark.”  Also, it’s really hard to tell, but the right-most kommando is a woman.  Yay, gender equality!

Lord Kozlov, Viscount of Scarsgrad and Lesovik

Kozlov and his [unofficial] character jack, Lesovik.

Paint strategy was zenithal highlight, then red, orange, yellow inks, then red ink again (probably should have skipped that step).  Then Secret Weapon Ruby wash (okay, but not great for wide-open areas on Lesovik; great everywhere else).  Black everywhere that wasn’t red, then metals and black wash, then details.

Got these guys recently – just in time to get a few games in before Mark III hits.  First game was against a local player who is really good AND he was playing Haley 1.  I might have stood a chance if I’d deployed better, but instead I got annihilated.  Oh well, at least I don’t feel bad about losing a nearly-unwinnable matchup.
