|The sentence is DEATH.
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?
