One game I'm getting increasingly excited by is Beyond the Gates of Antares, having been playing a few games recently, and more on the cards before the game launches in a month or so's time I wanted to add some reinforcements to my Concord Strike Force. First up in the stream of reinforcements, are my squad of Freeborn Domari.
These are a very recent release from Warlord, and are beautiful sculpts. Like all the Antares models I've built casting quality was top notch, and the detail and sculpting superb.
I was really taken by how each figure was an individual, not just in pose, but in face too. Each is very distinct, without becoming a caricature of itself.
This last is a handy addition, as it means your gaining all you need to use a unit straight out of the box without having to by additional dice sets. (Though as we all know dice sets ARE addictive...).
Assembly and clean up are straight forwards, as stated the models are extraordinarly well cast, and are 1-2 part figures, with usually a separate weapon.
I wanted to do my figures in a mix of dull and bold colours, so painted cloaks and weapons utilitarian tones, whilst the armour was a dark metallic blue. To add an extra splash of colour I painted the faces white with a splash of red war paint
Paints used are as follows:
- Armour - Vallejo 800 Gunmetal Blue
- Cloak - Vallejo 825 German camo beige brown
- Weapon - Vallejo 914 Green Ochre
- Red warpaint - Vallejo 909 Vermillion
