Last year’s Black Friday sale includes these promo models, as a general purpose (and just fun) marker. Well, it’s getting close(ish) to Christmastime again, so it’s high time it saw some paint.
With M3E came some new sculpts and rearranging of existing crew boxes. December Acolytes got a resculpt and promoted to the main Rasputina box. Since I already had the Nightmare Rasputina set, and preferred the old sculpts, I went out and found a set of the old December Acolytes.
They seem generally useful, especially as an anti-armor counter pick.
For color scheme I went with the same burgundy red cloaks and Rasputina, and then filled it in from there.
The Hoarcats come three to a box. Back in the day, it was a Hoarcat Pride, and intended to all sit on the same 40mm base. Now they’re individuals, but seem undersized for a 40mm.
The solution, of course, is to build up the base.
I don’t see myself taking three cats, so I still put this pair on a single base. I wanted them to be fighting, but I managed to misalign one when gluing down. Ah well.
Paul Crockett has a lot of nice textures to work with. I especially amused myself by painting his coonskin cap as if it were alive. Perhaps Paul’s hat is his closest friend.
