With Silon, I wanted to give him a heavily augmented look, but without looking too Mechanicum in flavour so I have avoided my usual comfort zone of painting red. Instead I stuck with fairly neutral colours with a relatively muted grey/brown/metallics palette which seems much more ‘realistically’ militaristic or navy in feel compared with my richly cloaked Inquisitor Fell and dandy Rogue Trader Baron Gotthold.
I really wasn’t too sure how much I wanted Quint to stand out versus blend in with the team, but in the end opted for a copper voidsuit colour which ties him in with both Fell and Astropath Atellus. The rest of him is in a pretty drab/muted colour palette much like Silon – I think this helps to theme them as (indentured?) working-class members of the warband versus the other three which are more high ranking in status.
I only have my scrappy hive ganger, Uriah ‘Frag’ Soloman left from my original Inq28 warband kitbashes to paint now and then I should have something resembling a playable team for small narrative games. I really enjoy modelling Inq28 characters so I will definitely have to have another rummage through my bits box to see what else I can cobble up. Somewhat belatedly I realise I have been negligent to have not made any female character so I will have to aim to address that with the next batch.
