Just a quick post to day to share my first ever painted Chaos Renegade. Honestly I've been somewhat intimidated by these fantastic figures. There is so much going on with each figure and so many options for color choices that I have been paralyzed by indecision.
That all changed the other day when I was cataloging my Renegade collection and I noticed that one of the Heavy Weapon troopers had a helmet that was very similar in shape to Boba Fett's ...everyone's favorite Bounty Hunter from Star Wars.
A few minutes of Google Image searching later and I had some decent reference pics to work from.
Luckily the Renegade miniature had already be primed in the past so I was able to jump right into painting him. Many of you may have seen the various WIP pics that I posted up in various places on the Interwebs...here you will find the final pics.
I'm quite please with how the color scheme worked out on this figure...the armor isn't an exact copy of Fett's so some adaptation was required but over all I think the inspiration shines through...
..even though this one has an extra tentacle arm and a GIANT dragon faced missile launcher!
My only complaint about painting this figure centers on the plastic backpack....ugh...the detail on these is quite soft and challenging to figure out exactly what it is supposed to look like. I have a number of metal RT backpacks for some of my other renegades...but I may resort to some more modern chaos marine backpacks for the others....it was that annoying to me...
Anyway...while I had the lights out I also threw together a small set up with my Battle System Terrain and snapped a few "action" shots. I took these with my iPhone so the quality is not quite what it would be with my quality camera but I think it does an impressive job none the less.
Cornered by Imperial Guard! ....let the fun begin!
I hope to work him into a game soon!
