"Chanters of Change" - Kairic Acolytes

Marked by the Changer of Ways
for their cunning and devotion,
these warrior cultists fight with 
blade, sorcery and terrifying zeal.


It's Friday! Time for The Art of Caesura!

This week's offering is one that I have actually been working on over the past two weeks, but rather than show you a work in progress shot last week, I decided to just lay 'em all on you at once this week. Unleash the Kairic Acolytes!



This is going to be a photo-intensive post this week because each of these models is actually quite an individual. The detailed musculature on these models is some of the best I've seen, and I really think the matte finish of the Scale 75 Flesh paints did the skin tones justice. 

Please click on the images to see them in all their High-def glory!




 I kept the skin fairly pale, avoiding ruddy skin tones that might hint at a bit too much cheery vitality!





 I'm also still getting used to the new (for me) gem paints. I don't really think it looks like a gem, but I like the mystical effect none-the-less. 





For most of the other Acolytes I used diluted blue ink on their white loincloth, but for their boss I added a bit of purple as well to really amp up the "mystical" vibe.




 They did a great job with the poses of these models; from the dynamic running guy to the static and dominant pose of the Adept. 




Thanks as always for checking out my blog. I'll see you next week on The Art of Caesura!

Citadel COLOUR Contrast Paints First Impressions / Review

Hello and welcome to a special edition of The Art of Caesura! I've just returned from Warhammer Fest 2019 (and what a brilliant time it was!) Without a doubt, the big reveal of the festival was the new Contrast Paints that Games Workshop are touting.  They have seriously been marketing the bejesus out of these things, whether it be the three hilarious teaser videos in recent months: Leading up to today's reveal trailer: Or the heavy branding throughout today's swag bag and arena: Including half of an entire floor devoted to display cases of miniatures painted entirely with the new Contrast Paints - and, more excitingly, demo pods where we could give them a spin ourselves! But, I'm getting ahead of myself. I attended a seminar on the science behind the new Contrast Paints and between that and what I saw (and experienced) today, I'd like to share as much of it with you as possible. At the moment information i

The Full Stop - Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood

The monstrous Deepwood has consumed the land.  No farms or fields remain. There is only corruption, rot and the endless shadow of the twisted trees. ~ Shadowborne Games Pot's Peace, Oathsworn. Welcome to The Art of Caesura! What's all this then, TWO posts in one day!? Well yes, you see timing is of the essence here. Today marks the 200th post of The Art of Caesura , so if you haven't had a chance to check out the celebratory post, please do so !  There is also a Kickstarter ongoing at the moment, that I am getting quite excited by, but it closes on Tuesday, so if I left it till next Friday to tell you about it...it would be too late! Hence, in a world first, two hits of The Art of Caesura in one day! Now onward, into the world of Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood !

"The Skinny" - Scale 75 Flesh Paint Set Review

The complexion of a light-skinned face  divides into three zones: The forehead has a light golden colour  because it's freer of muscles and surface capillaries. The ears, cheeks and nose all lie within the central zone of the face.  Those areas have more capillaries carrying oxygenated blood near the surface, causing the reddish colour... The zone from the nose to the chin (where there are relatively more veins carrying blue deoxygenated blood) tends toward a bluish, greenish or greyish colour. Some artists accentuated this subtle bluish or greenish hue to bring out the reddish lip colour. Color and Light (page 156) - James Gurney Welcome all to The Art of Caesura! So I finished all the models in Warhammer Quest Silver Tower!! Wooohooo!! Now for something a bit different!  This week I'm going to do something I've never done on the blog before: write a review!! I've been wanting to write my thoughts on  Scale 75 's Flesh Paint Set for ov
