Brimstone – Slashers

I’ve been busy with Dust for the last month or so. Now I want to finish my Brimstone minis as that game really grows the more minis you have and I prefer my minis painted.
These are the Slashers from the Swamps of Death box. Big ugly brutes.
Quite a lot of preparation as the fit wasn’t great and I needed a bit of green stuff here and there.
I tried a couple of colour schemes that didn’t turn out well and in the end I just went for a really basic paint job. Well, better painted than not…
First a coat of Vallejo 874 Tan Earth, washed with Army Painter Strong Tone Ink and finally dry-brushed with 912 Tan Yellow.
Eyes black.
Breathing tubes (or whatever) got a couple of coats of Citadel Washes Baal Red on top.

Everything coated with Vallejo Satin Varnish to get a slight sheen to the exo-skeleton. Eyes and the red of the breathing tubes got a coat of Gloss Varnish.
They are based on 40mm clear bases from Sally 4th.

  1. Nice job. I'm doing mine in red, as per the game illustrations. They aren't finished yet though...

  2. It might be a simple colour scheme, but it's nice and effective for a swamp creature.

    1. Mud-brown was my thought. Turned out a bit to light but now it could serve as a desert-monster too.

    1. Thank you.
      This works well, just sign it with you name or alias and we'll know who you are.
      As an alternative you could get yourself a Google+ account and sign off with that. Just like I have.

    1. They are my favourites from the Swamps of Death box, without a doubt. They have someone (or many) with a lot of imagination at FFG.
