Two more 4th Edition Dwarven Giant Slayers (1993-4)

Citadel Giant Slayers 1993-1994

Having finished the last of the Marauder Slayers the other day, we move to another pair of the Citadel Giant Slayers.

This pair has gotten a slightly more natural shade of orange for their hair than many of the others. Whether they used a different dye or theirs has simply washed out somewhat, when mixed into the units, they’ll help to offer some variance while still maintaining the visual coherency with the others.

As with the last half-dozen or so slayers that I’ve finished, I’ve attempted to again vary the stripey trouser just slightly from the neverending run of identical blue stripes. Clearly not by a lot, but again it’s simply about adding a little bit of variation into the unit so they still look like a unit but not entirely homogenised and uniform. They’re not a freshly-raised unit of Napoleonic Chasseurs, after all.

I’m quite pleased with how the tattoos came out on this pair as well. That’s one thing that this project has really helped me with. Well, two. I can now paint many variations of orange-to-ginger hair pretty much with my eyes closed. I’ll have some command guys photographed and posted hopefully within a few days, and then I need to start getting some group shots of the Slayers (and Vikings, and others) taken and posted!

  1. Nice work! I like the pants design and the tattoos are really well executed, both in following the sculpts and the slightly washed out look that ink under skin has. Always enjoying your posts of Slayers, and very much looking forward to the group shot!

    • Thanks Subedai! I’ll be trialling Vallejo Panzer Aces 309 – Periscopes – on some tattoos for different figures soon. I’m kinda stuck using dark blue for the Slayers. Started because of their tattoo/woad artwork, and now stuck because of my desire for consistency there. The plan is to take some group photos this weekend and then roll them out not too long afterwards. Depends how distracted I get posting things related to the 17th around that time…
