More Yaktribe goodness and a red mechanic

A little more work on my Yaktribe entry this week, mainly on Little Smiley the Ogryn and Mr Verkehr of the South Sump Syndicate.

When last you saw these two, they werent accompanied by the gentleman with the rather long rifle, but they had something much like this lack of all things resonably pigment related.

 Little Smiley then got a bit of a going over in the basecoat department, his colours were quite limited and rather plain, showing his lowly station and simple nature.

 Soon enough he got a snazzy hair color and some shading to his clothing, this stage was my favorite.

Here, i think I made a mistake. I personally think I took him too dark. Not 100% sure, but I may strip him and start again.

 Next up is Verkehr. Hes a really plan and unassuming looking bloke, his uniform was really simple and I just wanted something easy to recognise in the masses of the underhive.

The "S" in the cog will be the symbol for the Syndicate.

Started washing him here, he looks a lilittle better with some definition in the face I think.
 And here he is a bit later on, chilling with my new and improved Skitarii maniple leader Metalus Octus.

 There is still a lot of detailing to do on them all, but I think it's a good start so far.

Also, here is another shot of that fellow from earlier with the rather long rifle. and a friend for him.

These will be the final 2 for the protective detail, unless I have a heap of time left before the end of the month and can add some more to the group. He is a FW renegade guardsman torso, some guard bits and a rifle from the beautiful new Skitarii kit. If you don't have at least one box of these yet, GET ONE RIGHT NOW!!!!! There are so many cool bits and pieces in that kit, the heads alone are worth their weight in precious, precious Unobtainium.

So, there's lots more to do, but it's coming along.
THere are already a bunch of awesome entries showing up, so if you haven't checked Yaktribe out yet, GET ON IT!!!

Until next time, keep on keepin on.

  1. Thats a great use of Ork bits on the Ogryn. And the goatee on Verkehr is great. The shading is really making them both pop.

    The sniper is also a great bits mash, the posing is very suggestive - well done.
