I have no idea what I’m getting myself into. All I am armed with is my limited human knowledge and ability to spend money on things I don’t need. So naturally I went with the Scourge, because what better way is there to expand your knowledge then to add an entire other mental presence into your mind and relinquish your freedom to it!
The first thing I had to do was buy models. So of course I went ahead and bought the super starter pack deluxe. Mine came with a Scourge Starter pack, about 10-15 extra kits I may or may not need, and the most adorable scowl on my wife’s face. With a reasonably terrible 1500 point list and a bunch of unopened models I was ready to proceed onto the next step. (Disclaimer, I have a very old phone so a lot of the model pictures will not be the best quality)
I had to decide a paint scheme. Now I am not a very good painter, I don’t know the difference between base coats and highlights, I still don’t see why priming is so important, and I just figured out what a wash is. However, Dropzone models are tiny and really easy to paint! I wanted to go with a purple color so I promptly painted two test models. One was purple with a blue highlight, and the other with a grey highlight. In the process of painting these models I realized I wanted a third option to compare the other two, so I put together a third model and painted it just white, then I slapped some Guillaman Blue Glaze (my favorite citadel paint that I never use!) onto it and realized I was on to something.
I now have a mini-fleet at my disposal to terrorize all my opponents. Tremble in terror at my all powerful snow scourge!
Stay tuned next week when I talk a little bit more about the fluff of the Scourge, and then I can introduce you all to “Mr. Giggles”
