The last two Arbites were painted like the others, with brown storm coats and blue pants. Notably, the unit’s sniper is the only one that is not wearing a helmet. This gave me the opportunity to experiment with skin tones. The darker skin tone is quite a bit more challenging to paint than a pallid one, but i think it was worth the effort. I particularly like how the scar tissue came out. I also did a little experimentation when painting their bases. While similar to the others I had painted, I used some of the GW Martian Ironearth technical paint to paint select parts. Like the related Agrellan Earth, Ironearth cracks when it dries. When painted on metal it results in a cool rusted/crackling paint look, that adds some variety to their bases.
|As the technical specialist, Zhou carries a back-mounted null generator to combat the psychic menace of the Alabaster wreck.|
|Before this game, I did not realize how strong shotguns are in Necromunda!|
|Although all of the Arbites have a polymer sidearm, Ada's is the only one with a long slide, evident from the extended holster.|
|Without a helmet, I was able to experiment with different skin tones of Ada.|
|The null generators were constructed from leftover pieces from the Kataphron Battle Servitors.|
|The noble Arbites had to lug these industrial grade null generators through the hive on their mission to protect the good citizens of the Imperium.|
I had a really good time building these five arbites; it has been something that I had wanted to do for some time now. With this first group complete, I am considering making a few more. What do people think? Would you like to see some new ones, and if so, what should they be equipped with?
