'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Earth Doom.....

One of my favorite models from Khurasan are the Earthdoom suits.  I knew I wanted to use them as the power armor for my RESD troopers.

I killed two birds with one stone over the weekend and set up my new airbrush, an Iawata Neo CN and got one suit painted and my other two base coated.

Base coasted models with a 15mm trooper for scale.

Completed minus the base.  This is the scheme I am going to go with.  Although I am still considering the troopers using custom paints over the cockpit.  My original thought was a hand print.  Some kinda tribalish ideas maybe.

I had some issues with the white paint drying too fast, making it difficult to get the skull to go smooth.  I ended up making a wet pallete after the fact, and will give that a shot this week.
