I finally bit the bullet and started painting one of my Phoenix Lords (I have the full set, though Fuegan came so beautifully painted that I couldn’t bring myself to strip the model down and re-do it myself. Ditto on his escort of Fire Dragons)
I’ve been dreading putting paint and brush on these models for ages as they are so much a feature point of any table they walk onto. After two squads of Dark Reapers though, I though I probably had the skills to tackle Maugan Ra – especially as the paint scheme is so simple compared to some of the others. I mean, painting black models is cheating in some sense.
Anyway, this was finished a little while ago, and submitted to MiniWarGaming’s Painting Deathmatch for May 2011.
