The finished Eversor Assassin

Hi all,

Absence (Hopefully makes your hearts grow fonder!)
It's certainly been a while since we posted on here as this time of year tends to explode with activity in our workplaces, with children and all the activities that we participate in. For me personally Scouts is going crazy as I have been leading on a camp for 3000 children(!) and am now in the process of planning a camp for the Beavers (6-8 year olds) in our group. Also school (yes I am a teacher) is always nuts at this time of year with exams, the Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions, of which I am a co-ordinator and expedition assessor and lots of school projects coming to a close. Lastly my kids are doing everything it seems! All sorts of activities in the evenings after school are needing taxi services and encouragement. This is all positive stuff though so I certainly can't complain, it just doesn't leave much time for any Warhammer.

What have I managed?
However, I have been able to get in some hobby time as Steve and I have somehow played 2 games of Necromunda in a week. Steve's pitted his Escher gang against my Orlocks twice - once on the last of the board missions from the book and the second time on a 3D terrain table for the first time.

"Zeke's down, Cover him!!"

This was exciting as it opened up a whole new set of rules questions but looked awesome and has made me fall in love with the game on a totally new level. It has also made me realise just how much terrain you need for a full game of Necromunda and how much I need to order some more magnets and get my backside in gear with my Mantic Terrain Crate Project!!
Also I finally decided I was going to get some Assassins! I have always wanted these guys as they look so cool and add massive flavour to the game and so I finally got myself an Eversor and a Vindicare assassin.

In this post I am going to quickly note through the paints I used for my Eversor assassin.

Step 1 - Metal areas

Wash - Nuln Oil
Highlight - Mithril Silver (Old, Old paint!!)

Step 2 - Bronze & Gold Metal

Step 3 - Red areas - Armour Plates
I decided to use red to break up the model and give it some warmth

Wash - Carroburg Crimson
Highlight 1 - Blood Red
Highlight 2 - Mix Blood Red and Ceramite White

Step 4 - Leather pouches

Step 5 - Skull
Base - Ulthuan Grey
Wash - Reikland Fleshshade
Highlight - Ushabti Bone

Step 6 - Suit
Highlight 1 - Adeptus Battlegrey
Highlight 2 - Fenrisian Grey
Note: I redid the suit as I had highlighted too many areas and it looked too busy. Hence the number of pics - but they are different I promise!!

Step 7 - Gun/Sword Casing

HIghlight 2 - Ulthuan Grey

Step 8 - Poison and Vials

Step 10 - Base

- I sanded the base and then painted the base part Dawnstone, washed with Nuln oil and drybrushed Dawnstone and then Ulthuan Grey.
- Next I painted the Lower part of the base Ulthuan Grey, Washed with Agrax Earthshade and Drybrushed Ulthuan Grey.
- I then painted the top part of the base...
Metal - Leadbelcher, Nuln Oil, MIthril Silver
Top part - Steel Legion Drab, Agrax Earthshade, Drybrush Ulthuan Grey

I hope that you like the model and method. I really enjoyed painting it.
