Wrath of Kings: Nasier!

The Wrath of Kings Kickstarter reward has finally arrived… I pledged for a Nasier starter army, with some extras. I’ve been toying with color schemes for some time, using a few sample minies I had acquired a while back.

This Ashman is the first test model. I liked the red/black/grey color scheme that is standard for Nasier, but I didn’t want to paint it for my own force. Instead I opted for a different use of the same pallet.

-The cloak and armor is black, with gold trim and accents on the armor plates and sword guards.

-The arm and leg wraps are a cool grey, highlighted with white.

-The bloodmask and the back spines are white.

-The various bags, scabbards, and belts got a greyish brown base, with minimal highlights.

-The only real splash of color comes from a red rune on the mask and shoulders (the right shoulder got the kanji ‘jin’ meaning man) and striping on the spines. I plan on making the red runes/marks unique to the individuals.

-I made his skin a dusky brown, resembling Middle Eastern skin tones (the whole style of the Nasier resembles to me Persian Samurai).

I like this color scheme, as it gives the Ashman a stately, bold look. We’ll see how it pans out over a whole army.

Also: 200 posts! Wow has it been so long already? I hope my followers and myriad visitors have been enjoying my work.
