Their sword arms are magnetized, so maybe they are technically unarmed. The first batch of Harlequin Troupes are done.

It’s great to see a batch complete. Since the last update, the 6 riders and all the weapons were completed as well. As a finishing touch, the windows were detailed. I am always impressed with the magnetization on these. The ball magnet allows for articulation and the tiny magnets are well placed to fit the riders.

Now it’s time for infantry.

3 more characters are now done. The first is a Troupe Master with magentized arms, an old pewter Death Jester, and a Shadowseer.

The Troupe Master gets a variety of arms. Holding a knife, different guns, or just an empty hand. He is one of the only models in the army without a mask. I think my favourite loadout is with an empty hand so it can look like he is barely balancing on the rubble.

I painted the Death Jester like the others. His cloak is black instead of a dark blue, but I gave that dark blue treatment to his jester cowl. Lots of diamonds as usual.

This was a unique Shadowseer. Fancy floating robes with smoke, fancy huge staff, and big hair. I went for a pale blue smoke with some purple shading. This took me a while to figure out. I knew I wanted the smoke to be blue and purple, just not the tone or brightness. I went for the higher contrast of a bright pale blue to separate it from the cloak.

This time, I didn’t take pictures by the time I finished another batch. So this time, I have 10 minis to show off.

The first batch of 5 Harlequin troupers are done sans weapons. They have very dynamic poses, many of them are leaning quite heavily. Makes it look like they’re leaping and dancing I suppose.

I will be on vacation this week and will be returning Oct 2. This was a before-leaving update on the commission.

Another six riders are done. I like to alternate the patterns between each model to make the scheme more interesting. I haven’t glued any of them on, but I can still show them off riding the jetbikes with their buddies.

Finished. All 12 bikers and the Big Mek. As we all know, red goes faster. Since deffkoptas fly, I would think that regular bikes would suffer a bit more from dirt and rocks scratching up their paint. Therefore, I did a lot of weathering on the bikes. Since so much of the models were silver, I added in splashes of red here and there to liven up the paint scheme. Also, I love painting checker patterns and I don’t know why.
