I can't believe it's been 2 months since I painted up my first Ash Wastes Nomad for my planned Confrontation / Necromunda gang. Various other bits and pieces have distracted me, but happily Nomad #2 saw some paint action last night. Here's the results:
The Nomad has been quite extensively converted from the circa 1999 GW Last Chancers 'Brains' model. I sculpted him a new coat, headscarf and trouser bottoms, as well as reforming his canteen to match Nomad #1. His hat came from a Warlord Games sprue of hats, although I did do some remodelling to increase its girth.
Like Nomad #1, I went for a bright colour scheme, using broadly the same palette, but mixing up the patterns and colour placement. Having taken the photos, I can see that the striped trousers look rather pyjama-like, and I probably need to do a final highlight on the headscarf.
