Hello Drukhari players.

 

I'm painting up some scourges.  Actually I'm painting some scourge models that are to be used as swooping hawks.

 

What is the bit of material that drapes down around the thigh armor supposed to be?

I believe it's skin, but I do mine as cloth.

Brother Parabellum, I used these as conversion fodder, too, I thought it was some sort of waist cloth, because it's tied around the back of the waist.  But listening to you guys, I think it might well be meant to be a thing of skin, like you say.

I always thought it was cloth. Wyches have the same stuff. I personally found them awkward to paint on the edges because they aren't super defined,just a raised bit on their legs/crotch

Same....so I did them...but I don't really like the way they look or the modeling of it. Looks forced and awkward to me:

as stated, I'm pretty sure it is Flayed skin trophies that are hung from their waists.... I too will be painting it as my Saim-Hann Craft world specific coloured Cloth sweat.gif  a much more less brutish cloth choice... biggrin.png

With the wyches I just painted, I picked a low contrast colour for the cloth. What it did for me was to make it clear that I had picked out the detail, but not so sharply that it looks awkward. The muted contrast leans into the lack of sharpness on the sculpt.

 

None of the pics in my gallery are zoomed in close enough to demonstrate what I'm talking about. I'll try and take a few more pics tonight after I finish my Archon painting session.
