Regimental Advisers

One of the few recent pieces I actually consider finished are these Regimental Advisers. My son wanted to try them out in a game, so we got a set and I painted them up. I liked the looks of the Master of Ordnance and Officer of the Fleet, but I wasn't sure about the Astropath. In the end, that was simple and the one I enjoyed painting the most. After applying white primer, I washed the outside of the cloak a couple times with GW Asurmen Blue, and highlighted with a Vallejo sky blue. The inside of the hood and the sleave cuffs are Bleached Bone with a wash of Gryphonne Sepia. The Astropath has had a sealer applied; I'll seal the other two this weekend.

Painting the medals and outer accouterments on the two officers was an interesting challenge, especially the white gloves. Between those and the uniform, I don't think I've painted that much white on a single mini before. To make things easier, I painted Master of Ordnance's backpack separately, gluing it on right before taking these pictures.


  1. Looking good! The blue turned out really well on both the astropath and the naval captain. Keep up the great work!

  2. I have to agree with Mordian on this one, though I'm just dying to see someone paint up their astropath like Mickey Mouse in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." :)

  3. Nice job on the advisers mate, I'm quite liking the MoO.

  4. I dig the eye effect on the psyker... nice job yo!

    My advisors just came today:)

    They were bloody hard to get into the slot bases... you have the same trouble?

  5. I did have a problem with the Officer of the Fleet. I just filed the plastic base to widen the gap a bit.

  6. I had troubles getting mine in thier bases as well.

    Nice paint jobs.
