WIPs for Adepticon

Orcs of the Behemoth
Two Trackers and Kolghor


I decided on the right-sized and right-motivated project to work on for Adepticon.  I never had the opportunity to actually play a game of Confrontation, despite shouting from the rooftops forever, applauding Rackham miniatures.  So I'm finally composing a 200-point list to line up some pick-up games and learn the rules.

There's actually a Confrontation tournament scheduled for Adepticon, but I'm not a fan of tournament formats, and it would consume too much time, and it would conflict with one of the painting seminars that I signed up for.  Still, I hope to meet some Confrontation players and kibitz with fellow Rackham fans, since it's a rare occurrence to gather them from across the country into one location.

This WIP shows the "color-sketching" stage.  I'm really pleased with the direction they've gone.  I've been trying to get my head around this style for a long time.  There's still a lot of refinement to do.

I have three more models waiting in the wings, already color-sketched.

  1. Those colors work really well together. I love the crossbowman on the right. The purple with greenish yellow fringe looks great.

    1. Thanks, John!

      I like different aspects of each model, but, overall, I think Kolghor is my favorite. I was torn whether to paint the toad on his shoulder that orange-yellow blend or whether to paint it a bright yellow-green combination. I think either would have worked, but when I see him beside the other models, I like how the orange connects to the colors on the rest of the crew.
