I’ve painted up a few 15mm Irregular Star Marines. They might not be the best sculpts ever but I think they’re OK and do the job just fine. And they came to me at a decent price (=0). So I can’t complain.
They’ll be used in a set of rules by my mate of http://terminusnebula.blogspot.com/ called Fireteam Andromeda.
Painting was done quickly with a sponge, wash of sepia, white highlights and then details.
For snow bases I tried using a mix of PVA, water, water effects and Games Workshop snow flock.. It didn’t really pan out the way I hoped, so I’m still looking for a way to to that. You live, you learn.
I decided to paint a single squad in a different scheme. They could obviously be used as elites then…
I’m quite happy with the gun turret I converted from an old coffee capsule, a stick from flying base, a wooden pellet and a warmachine base.
This is the command for the army. I decided that each squad will have a different colour.
