Shadow Empire - Guardians Unit




Close on the heels of  my test guardian come the rest of the unit. From Macrocosm, these are awful fun things to paint. I'll be using these as a unit of scouts for Dragon Rampant. I have a healthy five units for the Shadow Empire now, with another three or four left to do.

I stuck to the same palette as the test model, which worked just dandy across the models. I particularly enjoyed painting the eyes, giving them bright blue eyes to give them some pop and tie them into other units. I added some gloss to each one, which really does the trick. I may come back and add a second scout unit in time, or a dead deflated guardian for an objective or casualty marker.



Now that the guardians are done I'm going to take a break from the Shadow Empire and head over to Khornetown to work on an AoS Skirmish warband. After that though, it'll be either vampires, the three storms or terracotta cavalry for the next addition to the army.


Lo Pan looks right at home with these lads. Right, that's my lot. May Ching Dai have mercy on you until next time.

  1. These look wonderful. I love the detailing on the eyes, the bloodshot/pink look, and the iris and pupils. Great miniatures and painting. :)

  6. Excellent bases and those eyes - so natural and in some magic way fit excellent to "faces" (angry, boring, hmm sleepy like). Absolutely amazing work!
