Although a few months off schedule, I am happy to announce that I have finally finished painting my Dark Age Outcast Warband, including bases!
It was just this afternoon that I put the finishing edging on the bases, signifying their completion. I am sure there are some spots where touch-ups or an extra highlight could be used, but as usual I tend not to worry about that when I finish models, as I usually need to move on to something else.
So, I guess we can take a closer look at who comes in the starter box:
Here are the Wasteland Warriors, the models that I think most capture the Mad Max feel of this faction.
Next are the Scuts, the kids with boomerangs. They are led by the Bully on the far right, fluff-wise a former Scut who’s grown up to lead others like him.
And lastly we have a Brute, and really, it’s all in the name. Yes, that is a giant concrete block that he uses as a weapon.
In a future post I will write my thoughts on these models after having played a few games with them. But for now I will say that the faction seems to have a nice variety of models with a nice mix of abilities and weapons. They are fragile, though, and not as good at killing as other factions, so being tactical and smart, and focusing on completing objectives are key with the Outcasts, I have found. Quite like the Showgirls I have been using in Malifaux.
While I’m here, let’s talk about the rest of the models in the Oucast line.
Here are the Fixer (saving his allies from malfunctioning weapons) and a second Brute.
My newest acquisitions are Hoj, Warlord of Samaria (a unique Warchief), a generic Warchief, a Brute Pusher, and a Manhunter.
And the last model in the line, who I do not have yet as he is on back order, is Mongo, the gargantuan dude with a concrete block in each hand. Whenever he comes in he will be the last model I buy for the Outcasts, until they release alternative sculpts for the Scuts and Wasteland Warriors, which I hope they do. Otherwise, I don’t want any repeat models.
And lastly, here are the bases that I am going to use for all of my unpainted models. The three in the front are ready to go, while the rest need to be re-primed and re-painted. The ones with the blue edging were originally intended for Ramos’ crew for Malifaux, but I never painted them and ended up selling them. The other two I had painted up at the same time as the others, but I’ve since changed my colour schemes, so they won’t match the new version of the Outcast bases.
Oh, and as a note, these are all Dragon Forge Design bases, my favourite resin base makers.
Keep an eye out for some WIP posts for the rest of the Outcasts.
Now to decide, what to work on next?
Thanks for reading.
