Palatine Hive Challenge - Helmawr Confrontation Gang



 Howdy. While I'm in the finishing touches of my Orctober submission, I thought I'd make a start on another project that I'm aiming to have completed before Christmas; the Confrontation gang challenge issued by Colin on the Palatine Hive page.

 I've already made a start on both Bratt and Venator gangs but I thought I'd opt for something from scratch so I decided on a Helmawr gang.


 First up is the LE3 Clan Hive Ganger model which by the look of it was the least trickiest of the Helmawr lads to paint.


 And it proved to be so. Once I'd established a colour scheme, he was pretty straight forward. They're all quite busy figures so it was crucial to get the scheme just right and not flood it with too many colours. Bratts you can get away with it but not so here.



 So now comes the real challenge with the other fellas but it was important to get off to a good start and give myself a platform and I'm looking forward to the next ganger with an Orcy post sandwiched in between.
