I liked painting Menoth Jacks, but this infantry was a nightmare. Ninja Exemplar Errants! Swords, shields, crossbows, pathfinder, hunter, and everything in full plate armor. Tons of details, very uncomfortable to paint, and old metal cast. I think, if I spent the same time on other type of models, I would achieved awesome result. The result is just fine, or rather I should say good, as the word ‘fine’ due to ‘fine cast’ sounds bad.

I was very lucky to get older metal Incubi and Harlequins instead of low quality ‘fine’ cast. As before with Dark Eldars Treasure Hunters army I had freehand to choose colors. The idea was to paint Harlequins far different from common joker style, to look more Dark Eldar style. I used limited color palette.
I am not a big fan of weather effects and realistic painting, however I aspire to became all-purpose artist. So I tried additional shadings and scratched armor plates. Soon I am going to paint rusty Chaos Space Marines Squad of Nurgle, using new 6th edition models :).
This is my second serious freehand after the one for Dark Eldars Treasure Hunters army and since feedback is positive I will make more.More
Techniques used to paint this model are very simple so it’s like do it your self tutorial movie. To achieve this effect on your model it’s necessary to fallow steps in correct order more than having skills and experience.
