The Berserker Pig is the first of the individual Adversary models from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. As a character he’s existed for a long time, but this is his first time getting a model. While I was painting one pig, I figured I’d do a few others.
Like Cato, I felt like doing more blue. So the Berserker got blue accents. I’ve tried doing distinct accent colors for the pigs to help tell them apart on the tabletop, although these newer models also have more distinctive poses than the original set.
Branching out from accent colors, the Warlord gets gray skin. He’s fills out a 30mm base, unlike the 25mm common to most Relicblade models. I guess you don’t get to be Warlord by being small.
Verminmouth is the last of the pig sculpts. I really like how there are rats everywhere, including forming a loincloth.
In case there weren’t enough rats on Verminmouth, you can always summon the Rat Swarm. Dotting all the eyes was a pain, but worth it.
The Lone Guard Commander is the final Advocate model from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. He’s an individual model that thematically goes with the Lone Guard faction pack.
For the Lone Guard human characters I used the same three colors in different combinations of pants, shirt, and cloak. I needed the commander to match while still getting a distinctive look. Thus, the orange cloak and shield (unique color) but burgundy accents (common color).
The Bounty Hunter was one of the stretch goal individual models from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. She continues my red hair obsession.
She’s a fun single-piece model. I’d think the eyepatch would mess with depth perception when sniping with the crossbow, but who am I to argue? In game, she can move dodge tokens between characters, handy if you’ve got a rogue that’s thirsty for them.
The Moldorf Expedition is the other new faction set from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. As a new game mechanic, the Moldorfs are all neutral, meaning they can be hired into both Advocate and Adversary crews.
I’d been painting a lot of greens and reds, so decided to make this set focus on blues.
The Illusory Horror featured airbrushed blends and some of the more delicately painted eyes in recent memory. Black teeth contribute to the nightmarish qualities.
I mixed up blue metallics for most of the armor, otherwise there wouldn’t be enough surface for my blue theme. Blue steel is cool, right?
The Shadowfoot continues with my recent red hairobsession. He’s stocky but I still believe that he’s light on his feet. Plus he carries at least three daggers.
