The Prang

Here are the Prang from 15mm.co.uk that I tried using coffee grounds as basing material on last post. I worked the white armour up from grey, giving them a fair bit of depth... Although it doesn't show too well in these phone snaps. I think they look better from the back, and am planning to add some more leathery brown to a couple of them. 





Thanks for looking!

  1. Their faces remind me of the Ceru (Vor the maelstrom, old weird wargame).

    Just add dreadlocks. Love the bue hue you used as skintone.

    1. Cheers Javi! The colour is an old Citadel Space Wolf grey, it like it because it highlights up so well.

    1. This style of sculpting is really easy to paint. Reminds me of the early 90's, good times!

  3. Hi, Jacker. The coffee grounds look good on the bases: a unique non-rocky look (To me at least). And the Prang are cool. They are Eli's sculpts aren't they?

    1. Thank you kindly sir. I like the coffee grounds because of the variety of chunk size... and you can't beat the price. Those are indeed Eli's capable sculpts. Always a joy to paint!

    1. Limping along ol' buddy. I really need new brushes, paint etc. Planning on a warpaints binge at next financial opportunity.

  5. These are awesome lovely work mate. I think your right though the fronts need something to break up the colours a little more.

    1. Cheers Simon! I'm going to add a bit of brown and pick out the goggles in another colour.

    2. picking out the goggle lenses with some sharp contrast is what came to my mind when i saw them. i also thought dirt on that armour could break it up a bit, but on the other hand it's so crisp i'd hesitate before spoiling that look.
      all the best :)

  6. I like to refer to their sculpting design as "mullet" style - business up front, party in the back :)

    2. Hahahaha. True. And great paintjobs SJ; the brown turned out warm and leathery, and the white is crisp and ceramic-y for good contrast.

  7. Huh. Didn't much care for those sculpts looking at them 'naked'. Your paint job really brought out a lot of personality. Might have to a order a pack for a nice little "Five Parsecs" faction.

    1. I just saw the studio paintjobs on 15mm.co.uk, and I think they actually put mine to shame. I'm now planning to do the extras I have in a much darker scheme!

  8. Only just realised you are back, and also returned to the UK 'jacket. Good to have you back. I'll have to look into this parsecs thing.
