Runewars Miniatures Paint Schemes: the Waiqar Models

Just starting into the Runewars Miniatures Game. I like its take on Terrinoth, which I have always been a fan of, and its models. FFG has taken units like the Waiqar Reanimate soldiers below, and made them so easy to paint – with their raised surfaces and open poses – not to mention excellent sculpts. There are 4 poses for each unit, which you could modify even more if you like, since they’re an easy to cut plastic.

This unit started out as a more traditionally painted one – as you can see by the two test figures in the back row. But in the end I opted to make them look a little more creepy by painted them up as phantoms. This is of course, a faster way to paint an army. After spray bombing them white, I painted their skulls, weapons and most shields in a pale green, before washing them down with GW Coelia Green ink. Dry brush them afterwards with white, and they’re done. Although it’s a very fast colour scheme, I think it looks great.

Below is my core box unit of Reanimate Archers, done in the same fashion.

Below is my Commander, Ardus Ix’Erebus, and a Carrion Lancer. I did not think these two units should be phantoms like the rank and file – they have very corporeal armour and mounts. I painted them up theorizing that Arbus is trapped in his plate mail, and the Carrion Lancer is doomed to ride his carrion worm for eternity.
