I needed a break from power armor. I have always loved the Guardian models, specifically Storm Guardians. Back when you could run Black Guardians, Storm Guardians were pretty cool. Now they have been kind of clown shoes in a lot of my games. None the less, I dig them, and so I have them, and I thought I would throw some paint down on them.
I went for Alaitoc because it is a very painter-friendly color scheme. The yellow and bone spot-colors against that dark blue work well for catching the eye. I also friggin love the Ranger/Pathfinder models, and they are kind of Alaitoc's thing. Lastly, I will probably use this force in an upcoming team tournament army in January, and Alaitoc is the Craftworld that seems to intermingle with the other races the most.
Anyway, butterfly that I am, I am sure I will be flitting back and forth between this, AoBR, and whatever the hell else I feel like. Here are some closer pics of the finished "test model". Sadly, my sealing coat left him looking really grainy. That is pretty much the nail in the coffin for GW's Purity Seal for me. I will stick with Testors.
