They look good, I think it's worth doing at least some details as it helps a lot. You can always return to add a bit more later they're more than ready for the table top :)

Last night went well and I have a lot of the base work done on the next 5:

I kept the originals nearby to ensure I changed up the paints used to keep them looking more distinct. The only question is if I can manage this across all 4 sets teehee.gif

It works well, maybe you could experiment if you run out of ideas and add a bit of patterning or something? Cultists especially come together in number which is fitting :)

One thing that I did with my last group of cultists (as I found my first few to be too uniform) is to chose 1 or 2 similar colours (in my case light and dark purple), 1 of which would be somewhere on the model (so that every model would have 1 of the 2 colours, helping tie them together).

 

I then set a number of pots of paint to the sides (4-6) for the cloth and another set for the leather.  I then randomly determined for each model (with a D6) which colour to use for their shirt, their pants, and then for all their belts and boots (I did all these leather parts in one colour on any given model).

 

Then again, I like rolling dice to determine things that I want to be random... I have done so previously for skin tones on my IG and daemonettes - so this may just be my own particular neurosis.  :)

Heh! Adding dice rolling to painting is not something I've heard of before! It's like adding more hobbying to your hobby biggrin.png:tu:

 

Yes I think that's a sound idea, and one I'm leaning towards. I ended up using red on this current batch of Cultists despite initially planning on varying the colours. I think I'll keep red as a main theme and add other colours to spice things up happy.png

Batch 2 is complete!

 

med_gallery_27469_16649_190025.jpg

 

Current Cultists progress is 50% - the pose on the right looks similar but they are different colours on the body... will have to ensure I mix them up more in future to prevent them looking too close from a distance. Still, should get lost in the full squad of 20 and it's nice to see a squad starting to appear from my efforts smile.png

 

med_gallery_27469_16649_118654.jpg

 

Time is starting to creep up on me so I will try and do the last 10 in one go... one final push then I can move onto something else which will be nice. Painting the same poses over and over is a little dull!

It's always worth it in the end, they're coming together better with each model added then you'll be able to move on to something different and more exciting :tu:

For all my grumbling about how boring it is to paint the same model over and over... it does seem like I've got into a productive routine sweat.gif

These 10 have flown by. I have a few more things to do but there is light at the end of the Cultist tunnel yes.gif

Once you get used to models it helps, I guess it helps that much more when they're exactly the same :P Plus the sooner you finish the sooner you can work on something else ;)
