I did not want to post this update until I finished painting the Brutes, which I managed to do a couple of nights ago, and took pictures of what I had completed. So here is what I’ve finished this past week.
Here are the Brute and Brute Pusher, Outcasts.
I tried to keep the colours as similar as possible. Actually, I’ve been doing it with everything I’ve painted so far, giving the whole group of Outcasts a similar appearance, without being overly uniform. Which would be hard to do, of course, as no one wears what anyone else wears. Oh, Outcasts.
You know, I really like how the Ogryn Flesh wash really brings it all together. I’m happy with the tabletop quality I’ve come up with for these guys.
Three Mechanical Doves for Colette and the Showgirls.
The other day my son was sleeping, and I didn’t want to chance him waking up by going down the (creaky) stairs and getting the then-WIP Brutes, so instead I picked up the three Mechanical Doves that were only black-primed and got to work on them. Two afternoon naps-worth of painting and here they are, pretty much complete. I just need to add blue to the base edge, as I do the rest of my Showgirls.
I did a very simple job on these birds. They don’t usually last long on the battlefield (although they do come back again), so I figured they don’t need too much love. Just enough to look cool on the table.

I would like to get both the Showgirls and the Outcasts finished as soon as possible. Once I hit “Publish” on this post I am going to get cracking on the next model. I’ve now got four various regular-sized dudes and Mongo for the Outcasts, and two Coryphee and Angelica for the Showgirls. C’mon, I should be able to finish all that by the end of the month, right?
Thanks for reading.
