Early next year there should hopefully be a bunch more Casanii - I'm aiming to have a full 'starter force' ready in time for Salute, plus a few extras for good measure.
I like the white face paint - very distinctive!

These are superb. I liked them before, but the addition of the skeletal war paint really sets them apart and gives them a far more feral, tribal feel. Great work!

Bases for the Casanii!!!

First, I applied a layer of acrylic paste and added some rocks and smaller stones


Painted with Desert Yellow


Light Shade form Armypainter


After the drybrushing with some withe/desertyellow mixture, I added 12 and 6mm grass fibres with an "Grassmaster", normally used for model train layouts. That nice thing induces 15.000 V, 20.000 would be better for the longer fibres, it still worked. (that 20.000 version was released two month after I bought mine...)


Placing the Casanii Smiley


More probably tonight and better shots!
cheers

Lovely work! You also beat Paul to it Grin

Those are certainly worth a couple of Twilight points. Remind me about them when you next order  Smiley

The long grass looks really good and gives them a great arid desert base theme! I don't think I've ever used anything longer than the shorter static grass (didn't even know you could get longer stuff). Do you have to have one of those grassmaster things to get it right or could you have achieved a similar look without one but presumably with more difficulty doing it manually?

I'm pretty sure you can achieve it manually, but the grassmaster makes it a lot easier. You could probably use tweezers with the long ones and maybe get them even denser. hmmm... might give that a try too Wink

You can get grass tufts in various lengths that make life easier. I tend to cheat and use those now...

I cheat with pre made grass tufts too, but I've still been well beaten to the post with the Cassani - played with them last week, but haven't take a brush to them in a while!

Great looking models, and you've continued with the consistent character throughout the whole lot of them and into the basing. Brilliant stuff!

Thx a lot Smiley Sadly I didn't get to play them last time (I honestly just forgot to print the rules... d'oh), so my Dhogu got crushed horribly by a pack of Grishak...

Aaaan, we keep going.

This time, we have my test Knight for the Guardians of the North Wink or whatever name I can come up with in the end. Maybe Nightwatch. Wait..... No... hmmmmmm...

I'm pretty satisfied with the colourscheme, but the grey will get more layers next time, but that's what testminis are for Wink And imagine him with a nice snowy base like me Dhogu.

Some lovely work on the Casanii, the skulls give them a very tribal feel.
