Bile Tralls Cryx Unit verDC23


Bile Tralls Cryx Unit painted by Don Suratos aka DC23photo

I finished these beautiful tiny models a couple of weeks ago and as always I figured I'd archive the photos here in my old blog. Unlike my usual miniatures which are mostly commissioned works, these Bile Tralls are mine and belongs to my slowly growing Cryx army.

I am still learning how to hand paint these wonderful metal models from Privateer Press. I am enjoying every unit / model I finish as I learn how to effectively and efficiently paint them. I still struggle making the metallic areas look better, but I am starting to get comfortable in painting the skin and cloth parts. I hope I do a better job with the armor parts of my next batch of finished models.

Other than liking the look of these butt naked Bile Tralls, I love fielding them against my son! He hates them so much as they can potentially wipe out his Winterguard Infantry Death Star! My son is starting to learn how to counter these Bile Tralls and he is asking me to buy a Khador Assault Kommandos for his Khador army ( smart little dude ).

I prime, paint and varnish my models all with Vallejo acrylic paints. Strong vibrant paints that I love so much! :)

I also struggled painting dead skin tone ( pale ) as I feel I might make them look flat. I then gave my Bloat Trall a bit of Vallejo Game Ink Green and Purple washes to give it a deader look. I hope to paint more dead looking skin tones next time but I am happy as of now.
