I spent a bit of time over the Easter bank holiday weekend working on Thundrik’s Profiteers from the skirmish game Warhammer Underworlds. I originally bought these from my FLGS about a year ago as a cheap painting project. Since then they have been painted once, stripped and left sitting in a Tupperware container. Out of sight, out of mind…
On the back of working through the Dark Angels painting project, I needed a break from 40k. Rummaging through my unpainted AOS bits, I pulled these out and decided it was time to get them sorted. What’s more, I had a spark of inspiration for a colour scheme based off the Alpha legion theme from 40k. Here is what I came up with:
I wasn’t sure on the colour scheme at first, however as I got further into painting and it began to come together, I grew to like it more and more. I used Akhelian Green contrast paint over a base coat of Leadbelcher to get the vibrant blueish/ green armour. I really like how this turned out and am now thinking of applying this theme to a small Kharadron Overlords force. (Yes, I have more sky dwarves in the pile of shame.)
Though a small project, this was a lot of fun and I now have a warband ready to go for any future games of Warhammer Underworlds. I just need to learn how to play.
