"In Her Majesty's Name" Steampunk Adventuring Party Continues

A couple weeks ago we showed you the figures for a Steampunk Adventuring party we were starting for "In Her Majesty's Name". Well as you can see we have progressed a bit since then. Let's start off with the minions for our Baron's Brigade. As we mentioned, we used The Immortal Battalion packs one and two for our troops. So let's show you some of the steps to painting them.

Here we have the base blue on their coats and bronze on the armor and goggles.

Packs, holsters and belt pouches were all based in a medium brown.

Rifle stocks were also based in a medium brown.

Their helmets, boots, gloves and masks were all painted with a dark grey but allowing the black undercoating to show through in areas. The heavy weapons guy was given a yellow ocher touch for his drum magazine bags. Touches of copper were added to some of the weapons too.

The rifle stocks were given a coat of chocolate brown to add richness in color. All remaining straps were given the same warm brown color.

Gun barrels, canteens and buckles all received a coat of gunmetal.

Final touches and washes of burnt umber and black gave them a battle hardened feel.

Now onto modifying our second in command. We settled on these bits from the circuit boards we had dug up along with some old guitar string and a piece of plastic tube.

On the "lieutenant" we added the plastic tube for a larger barrel and drilled a hole for the guitar string.

A piece from our electronics went onto his back, hole drilled in the bottom and guitar string inserted to complete the mod.

Let's move on to painting. He was given the same blue on his coat as the troops. The warm brown was used for his leather skullcap and gloves. Brass and bronze were used for his goggles, buttons and weapon.

His tank and touches of his "eckto canon" were painted with copper.

Lastly his turtleneck was painted with a tan, then warm white and lastly a wash of burnt umber. Flesh was based with "mink tan", highlighted with "Skintone" and also given a brown wash. The wash gave him a nice five-o-clock shadow.

Shading was added to his coat, green in the goggle lenses and the "Ecxto" gauge was painted on the tank.

Their bases still need to be finished and given a theme which is yet to be determined.
So here we have the start of our "In Her Majesty's Name" adventuring party. Moving stealthily through some ruins in Bucharest.

Next post we'll show you the Captain of our team, The Baron! Til then, Have a Great Battle!
