New broom January continues with more completing two more Delta force operatives, completing my last fire Team. These are Empress miniatures, and while they are really mince miniatures and beautifully sculpted I don't get much pleasure form painting them. The problem, I think, is that the camouflaged kit makes them a bit samey- everything they are wearing is just a variation of the same dusty colour. The end result is, I spend ages paining them, and they end up looking a bit ... meh.
I know what you mean... I painted my Eurake SeALs in Multicam last year and got the same feeling in the end.
I have these Empress Deltas as well. Still contemplating if I will paint them to match my Devil Dog Designs Deltas (which wear gear from around 2000ad) which will mean they would be all black. Or I could paint them to match my SeALs, which would be more fitting from a gear point of view.
They are really nice mate. I like em great job.
Fabulous job on these great looking miniatures.
Good work even if you didn't enjoy them. :)
