And they are done! All five Mortifactors Terminators are now completed and ready to take to the tabletop, and I’m here to show off the final two, including the sergeant who I’m particularly chuffed with. Let’s dive right in and take a proper gander.
I was kind of worried about him looking a bit too similar to the rest of the squad but a couple of things took care of those question marks. The sword (yes it is a little ‘not straight’ – it is a FW kit after all!) played a big part in this. It’s the only thing in the squad now rocking my, as someone else dubbed it, ‘trademark’ weathered bronze. He’s also got that little but of gold on his chest that just pops a tiny bit to push him into people’s eye-lines. One thing I should also say is that this is quite a good demonstration of how picking the right kit parts from a limited options set of ‘sprues’ plays a part. This guy is standing taller, stiller and has a commanding air to him that the others don’t and that really helps set him apart.
Annoyingly, of the five skull shoulder pads, this guy’s is the worst. I had my first major screw up doing these with this guy and though I’m happy with my rescue job, it could have been better. That being said, it fits into my own fluff ideas for this chapter so I can’t complain.
I didn’t want to leave this joker out. Even though he gets second billing here, I’m really happy with how he came out. All the usual likes and dislikes, etc. But given that this whole squad has taken me about a month to complete, I don’t want to miss showing off any part of their number.
Now, obviously, with these being #4 and #5, that means that the squad is done. Sexy shots are on the way as soon as I can get them done. In the meantime these will have to do. Also, this marks the 7th unit of Mortifactors for me – half of the number required to complete my 2000pt army (well, it works out as 1999pt actually but whatever). So, to celebrate, and give myself a little treat, what I paint next may come as a surprise. Keep checking this blog for updates!
Both minis were undercoated black, and painted using Citadel Paints and a W&N Finest Sable Series 7 000 brush throughout. Onwards!
