As you know, here at Master of Magics we like to keep our eyes pleaded for interesting and unique painted miniatures. Hobbyists spend hours of their time creating, for lack of a better word, art. So, when we see some mini’s that impresses us, we reach out and ask the owner if they want to tell us about how and why they came up with their ideas.
One such collection I came across belongs to one Scott Frazier, a hobbyist who had caught my eye with his very crisp and cleanly painted Genestealer Cult army. Am always a sucker for models painted in a mostly white colour scheme (partly because of my lack of skill in painting the colour on my minis). So, I dropped him a message, asking if he wouldn’t mind showing us his collection here for you all. Lucky for us, he said yes. So, let’s jump over to the xeno loving side and check out his collection.
So, Scott. How long have you been in to 40k? Are you primarily a painter, a gamer, or both?
I started playing 40K in 1988 and while I still get in a few games a year (6-8) I’m primarily a painter and collector at this point.
So you been into the hobby for a while now. That goes a long way to explaining your skill with a brush. What paints and techniques did you use for your minis?
For these guys I kept things fairly straightforward. Airbrush base coats, recess shading edge highlights. I used airbrush stencils and tape for larger markings. The decals where appropriate and just painted markings and or details on for smaller stuff. Some spots have slight amounts of sponge weathering as well as weathering powders.
Well, they look great. Not going to lie, I’m a bit jealous of your crisp white armour scheme. How long did it take you to complete the army?
I did these guys in about 6 months as part of an escalation league at my local gaming store.
That fast! That puts my efforts to shame. Do you have a particular model you are the proudest of?
Favourite model in the army is the Stormlord or the Tectonic Fragdrill. I really love the larger pieces and am a sucker for terrain.
Definitely. Big centrepieces are always great for any army. So, what’s next on the painting table for you?
Next up is Orks, another great line jam packed with character.
Well good luck with them. I see you have already got a head start on the centrepiece.
Thanks to Scott for sharing his collection with us today. If you have a unique and interesting army you have been working on and would like to share it with the wider community, then you can contact on twitter @TenguPlaysGames where I can be found posting random Warhammer speculation and memes.
