Thanks @MechaSturgeon! But nah, that GW dragon was painted over 25 years ago and sort of “ruined” with my mid teen painting skills anyways … but I kept it for nostalgia’s sake
Started prepping the crew for the bolt thrower and wasn’t too keen on the spindly Mantic elf models. The ones with shield that I painted earlier look quite good, but on those (Gladestalker/War machine) basic models without shield it really emphasizes how thin they are …
… so I added some leftover cloaks from the Drakon Lord kit and voila, like them much better now (The drakon Lord kit has a plastic and a resin rider, so there s leftover parts )
Still some work to do, just basecoats and faces for now … but I think they’re gonna look fine with those cloaks
(If I find surplus cloaks on Ebay or if Mantic would maybe let me order those Drakon Lord cloaks separately I would be tempted to paint up some Gladestalkers with those models as well! )
… still pondering whether to base them separately or put them on the same base with the bolt thrower though … might become my first “multibase model” sort of.
