DARK AGE - The Forsaken forces of Saint Joan


It has taken me a little while to get this commission sorted, but thankfully my client is a patient guy. These models are the Forsaken St Joan sub-faction for Dark Age. With the new arrangement of boxed sets that CMON has put together for the game, all of these models can be found in one $80-box, and the contents total up to 925 points. Great for a game where the standard size games are either 500 or 750 points!




While the vast bulk of the models for Dark Age are spectacular, St Joan came under quite a bit of fire when she was released, because she didn't rally look like her badass artwork and it seemed her limbs were a little out of proportion. I wanted to have a go at bringing her "up to code" and so I tweaked a few things. You can see those tweaks in the photos below. I think it all worked out quite well.







I loved the color schemes of some of the Studio models, but wanted to see something more cohesive across the force, so I carried the main colors through from the St Joan model. The armor is a base of P3 Coal Black, highlighted up by gradually mixing in VMC Light Grey.


For the Furies, I tried to follow the Studio scheme very closely; using true metallics, however, rather than the NNM.


And finally for this batch I added in a set of Coils. My client is very happy to be able to add these to his currently template-heavy St Isaac force, too.

Cheers
Dave
