Van Saar: The dust gate orb weavers Finished!

After a bloody age of these guys sitting on my desk I've only gone and finished them! And I'm really happy with how they came out.

As it's been 7 months since I did the concept for them I'll recap whats been done.

Each one has padding sculpted between the hips, neck, ankles and shoulders to make them stand a couple of mm taller and adjust the poses significantly. Cloaks were greenstuff rolled out between two pieces of plastic coated with a little olive oil then sculpted into position.

I've kept the metals NMM so as to get the contrast I wanted and keep the colour pallete manageable.
The colours I settled on are a bit of a classic as the models were quite busy I didn't want to make it jarring. So turquoise and orange over muted bases are always a good bet.

Enjoy the photodump!

and happy painting! See you next week for my Delaque plans!

Van Saar:The dust gate orb weavers pt1

The Orb Weavers are a unique and strange gang. Sent down to the edges of the hive bottom to intercept incoming ash storms with intricate webs of nano molecular magnets to collect, what house Van Saar suspect, are nano-bots. Spread across the ash wastes and slowly converging back on the Hive. Some sort of self repair program that will fix all their ailing STC.

But for the last 7 years all they have got is rad sick, a particularly high tolerance to standing in sand, and into the habit of wearing their camo cloaks and rebreathers everywhere. It's slowly dawning on the Orb Weavers that maybe they were sent down into the depths for a different reason.

Just two finished so far, but more on the way!
