Yesssss, got my converted all-women Intercession squad assembled and undercoated!
Extremely stoked at how well these have come out, in particular the one from each squad with the grenades since none of the sculpts actually have them holding grenades (one of the operatives for the Assault Intercessors is specifically a grenadier and I wanted to make it obvious which one that was, and if I don't take her I'd be taking the regular Intercessor with grenade as an added equipment). I even went to the level of detail of chopping off the grip from one of the spare holsters and fitting it properly onto the empty pistol holster that the grenade-lady from the Assault Intercessors has, since she's holding a grenade instead of a pistol. I also chopped off all the helmets and attached them to the belts of every single one of them, to show that they still HAVE their helmets, they're just too cool to wear them. 😛
I'm going to paint them in Blood Angels colours, mostly because the red and black scheme is quite striking and I've never painted Blood Angels before.
Earlier this week I painted one of my converted Space Marines as a test to make sure the colour scheme worked, and man am I glad I did only one as test because I hate it. 😫 Despite deciding to paint them in Blood Angels colours and using the Contrast paint called "Blood Angels Red", there's FAR too much orange in that colour, I don't like how the backpack came out with it being black, and I don't like the base either (I DID do an absolutely bang-up job her face though, particularly the eye).
I did a second one and finished it tonight (the one on the right) using my trusty old Flesh Tearers Red, painting the backpack the same colour, and using the muddy terrain texture, and it looks SO much better. Definitely going to use that for the rest of them.
