I've almost finished the first batch of Leprecians, basically just need to touch up a few bits, varnish them and add some tufts to the bases. I'm still not sure about the rifles, I tried them black but it looked wrong on them so instead I've gone for this 'definitely not wood' colour.
I toying with the idea of painting some body camouflage on these guys to complete the Rambo/Arnie in Predator look but I'm nervous about it. I'll probably varnish them first and then give it a go.
I have 15 more kindred either en route to me or ready for painting but I think I need a bit of a change so these guys have jumped ahead in the queue. The 4 anteaters are from Eureka Miniatures Pax Limpopo range and I love 'em. They were kindly donated by Cheetor in exchange for the Ramires figure. I will definitely need to get a few more of them.
They are closely modelled on the French Foreign Legion so I plan on painting them like this
The only thing I haven't decided on yet is the skin tone for the anteaters. Obviously there are only two choices (as shown below). I'm not sure how blue skin would go with the blue coat, perhaps I will paint the first one blue to see how it looks. Any ideas?
