It's been a long time since I posted my first unit of Stormtonnians. I actually managed to paint these Retributors towards the end of last year, but the house move got in the way of shooting and posting them.
I've got better at taking WIP shots so here are a few. I find sharing stuff with friends on WhatsApp is a good way keep motivated and get feedback.
Fun fact! The little white porcelain 'mountain' behind the guys in the lower shot is a chopstick holder. They make excellent brush rests when you're painting and ensure you don't accidentally roll your brushes around and ruin the bristles in so doing. You idiot.
So, what are the caveats? Well, turns out 'teleporting' these guys into a Skirmish game isn't ideal. Such games rely on speed and decisiveness. Once they have deployed, the Retributors have to plod over to the enemy (say, some angry Fyreslayers) while the combustible little fellows repeatedly smack your outnumbered Liberators until they die. Cue the orange menace ganging up on the Johnny-come-lately Retributors.
Regardless, it was fun to get all the shiny guys together on the table at once. Here they are, full of beans, before it dawns on them that they're about to get their behinds whipped by some small, angry, naked guys.
The next step for this collection is to convert Steelheart's Champions so I can bring the glory of The Lady to Shadespire. The kits are beautiful and their configuration will mean the head swaps will be easy.
