Another trio of my last-minute, get-to-30-models-for-the-month frenzy at the end of April, the Harvesters (or Harvestors, during the Kickstarter!) ticked a few useful boxes. Simple figures. Simple colour scheme. Minor Assembly. Able to be speedpainted. A few decals, particularly from the AdMech sheets to make the suits a bit more detailed, and also give them a tenuous link to a 40k faction, in case I find something to double-duty them with. (Probably industrial servitor drones as scenery, at a guess).
The glowing glass(?) domes as depicted on their artwork got the simple OSL treatment, though I went with a green rather than yellow. They all then got a coat of gloss which makes them look decent. Naturally, that doesn’t come across at all in photographs. Ah well.
Turns out that they are also their own self-contained expansion set for Shadows of Brimstone, so I guess that’s good as well. Shadows is one of those Board Games, much like many of Games Workshop’s ones where every piece is a multipart model that requires assembly. The upside of this is that when it’s done, it should look pretty good. The downside is that as a miniature painter, I won’t even consider playing it until all of at least a core box is assembled, and then painted. So it becomes a multi-year wait.
