|Marauder Ash Waste Nomad #3|
I actually found the figure incredibly hard work to paint - primarily because of the sheer number of details and layers of clothing. Trying to squeeze in all the bright colours probably doesn't help though! I also couldn't find a single painted version of this figure online to compare my version against - I'm sure painted versions exist somewhere - anyone know of any photographs they can share?
With his carved staff and pointing pose, I've decided he is probably an Ash Wastes Shaman, so I'll probably be using him as a Psyker in games. I guess he may have been sculpted as an alternate leader to the Jes Goodwin sculpt - certainly all the decorative metal discs and tassles indicate he's more than your average ganger.
Here's the three Nomads together. I wish I'd painted the guy on the left with yellow trousers and red head scarf as he'd integrate better with the other two, but I don't really fancy repainting him (and I am rather pleased with the painting on his red trews!).
More Nomads to come in due course!
