A call to rusty arms

More Gremlins have enterd the fray in painted condition, the whole So'mer Teeth Jones boxed set is now finished.
If I can manage to paint up the stuffed piglets, taxidermist and pigapult before thursday I can go to The Outpost with my head held high!!!
The 4 Bayou Gremlins were painted with a more limited colourscheme, mainly brown, grey and blue.
This was then applied in different configurations to create a rag-tag look and yet give them a uniform feel.
The same unhealthy green skintone was used, again to tie them visualy to So'mer and to make it look like a whole.
The rusty guns are there too just as the marsh bases.

The rider on the warpig was given the same treatment as the rest of the gang whilst the hog itself got a pure pink basecoat wich got gradually highlighted to a more mundaine skintone in order to create a rozy healthy looking beast.
The spots on its hide were first painted on in a grey basecoat and given a grey/elf flesh highlight

And to finish, here's a group pic with So'mer taking the leader's place of honour in the back.

All in all I'm happy with them, they're fairly easily to assemble and they're straightforward to paint.
What they lack in scultped details they make more than up in comical value and to be honest I don't like painting lot's of chains and gems and other little gewgaws anyway so that' fine by me.

I must say that in real life they look better and for once this isn't due to a dying camera but thanks to a brand new one wich I'm not yet used to yet.

See you next time all.
