Burning of Prospero: Custodes
I have finished my first squad for The Burning of Prospero and I have to say the models are terrific.
This photo shows the standard bearer - but you guessed that.
The Custodes are the Emp's personal bodyguards, something like the Queen's Brigade of Guards, so I wanted to show them in squeaky clean polished armour. I therefore eschewed my usual wash technique and used highlights instead, restricting washes to the 'soft' parts of the uniform.
The models were spray in Humbrol Deep Gold and highlighted with Vallejo shining gold.
I went for royal blue as the contrasting colour on 'soft' components: it seemed appropriate.
The bases are in light blue grey with arcane symbols added to represent the floors of the Prospero capital.
