Some more Delgon


Here's some more Delgon for the march challenge.
I spend a little more time painting these, as they are a couple of unique named characters for the army.

The first one is the leader of the priesthood, NuraSen Gohral.
 And his accomplice NuraKira Obal
 Group shot with KalDreman bodyguards

I also like the differences between the regular KalDreman and the honourguard accompanying Gohral. It is a bit hard to see, but the one on the left has a ribbon attached to his weapon, and as a Dhogu has hairy legs against the cold.

And to conclude this post, here's some work in progress.
As he's one of the Delgon Gods, I'm taking my time painting him. I want him to be painted to the best of my abilities.

I already attached him to his base, as he is quite heavy (being a metal miniature) and I accidently dropped him because my hand cramped while painting him. But it makes it difficult to paint him.

Thanks for reading,

World of Twilight february challenge, ... oh wait, it's already march

Hello everyone,

I can think of at least a dozen excuses why I didn't finish my Delgon for the february challenge.
But the bottom line is that I got distracted by a lot of things.
Halfway through february I suddenly started painting my Frenu, instead of finishing the Delgon I started. The monotonous colour scheme I chose for my Delgon was probably the biggest factor.
Followed by some Relics miniatures, which I bought at least a year ago.
I dug these up after seeing some on Brummies blog.
To make matters worse I also received a message shortly after, saying my Gamingfunder reward for Relics was on it's way.
Distracted again ... one of my most terrible flaws indeed ;).

For my Delgon I wanted my force to look as if they were fitted with mass manufactered weapons, armour and clothing. So I used my metalic paints instead of NMM and went for a soft leather look on the sleeves and trousers. During wartime they probably don't bother a lot with dying the leather.
I also remembered seeing drawings of the first humans in winter, wearing soft leathers to protect them against the biting cold. Could also be useful in the Setir mountains, where the Delgon live.

Still working on Obal, Gohral and Roban. If I get these finished I only have to do Plutom's mechanicals to have all of my Delgon painted.
I do need some more KalGarkii (common footsoldiers) though, as right now I have more bodyguards than common soldiers. I also need some more KalMalog (Mechanized cyborg like soldiers), so I can play every scenario.

Kind regards
