117th Bastion Regiment


117th Bastion Regiment logoIn 2020, I was really struggling with my desire/ability to paint. I just couldn't master any motivation. I'm not the kind of person who paints just to paint. I need a goal - like getting my force ready for an upcoming game. I wasn't playing much of anything during the pandemic and I went months without even going into my painting room. I reached out to my friend Ross Hines and asked him to give me an assignment, to pick a faction for me to paint. My thought was I'd take his 'homework' and do some serious painting over that weekend. 

Did I mention that Ross is an art teacher...? 🙂

He's also STUPID talented when it comes to art, designing CAV lists, and kicking my a** on the tabletop battlefield.

He assigned me to paint some Malvernis models. I'd watched some tutorials from an awesome Twitch streamer - Next Level Painting about how to paint star fields.

And here we are... 

Painting these models got me out of my doldrums and back into painting as something I enjoy. I need to make an actual playable force out of these models. I must own at least a dozen more Banshees. That's probably not enough. 🙂

CavBoss liked my paint scheme enough he assigned it to the 117th Bastion Regiment - a fine compliment indeed.

Freakin' epic! Any follower of Khardullis would be proud to spin up the turbines in those.

The blending looks great and the dark to highlight spectrum is super nice. The purple / orange contrast on the canopy is well done. 

I just picked up a Reaper Triad of purples for my Malvernis and some more blues for my Templars. Now, I just need to find some time to get a few mechs under the airbrush.
