The Porcelain. Shades of white

With BOYL 2017 fast approaching and less than a week to paint the whole gang as well as construct a speeder bike I ended up pulling several late/ into the next mornings to get them done.
Drawing on my previous speeder bike for 15mm inspired by the bike from Star Wars Force Awakens I used an old Rogue Trader Jet bike and a Highlighter pen lid as well as some bits to complete the gang.








Regarding their colours, I wanted to convey their wealth but also provide a more uniform approach because of the backstory and avoid the more Harlequins style. Partly inspired by the white fencing dress and also painting of duels, i settled on a white, sepia and gold scheme









unfortunately with the clock ticking I did not take by usual stage of shots but have some .
Due to the time limits I on ly washed the skins and will go back later with more detail.











The group were finished off just in time and ready to field at BOYL17

  1. I think these type of items are better left in the museum, I dont think people would like this type of stuff for decoration purposes in their homes, or thats just my opinion.
