Today is the first in a quick run of army showcase posts, with some great Age of Sigmar armies popping up again at Throne of Skulls. Throne of Skulls is traditionally an event which pulls some great looking armies and Douglas Fazzani (@dfazzani) received a best painted nomination for his fabulous Deepkin. This army is a great demonstration of how a striking bold colour scheme, almost abstract in concept, with top quality basing produces an amazing overall army effect on the tabletop.
For more great Age of Sigmar armies, check out the other showcase posts. But for now, I’ll hand over to Douglas to talk a little about his army.
Douglas Fazzani’s Deepkin
I like to take new armies to every tournament I go to and try and improve a bit of painting that I feel I’m lacking in for each one.
This time I wanted to improve my basing. Normally I paint the army then panic and slap some texture paint on it, which looks ok but won’t win me any awards. I was originally going to do a stormy sea crashing against rocks for the Daughters of Khaine (and went so far as to make some bases) but then the Deepkin were announced and it was obviously destined to be!
The majority of the painting is done with an airbrush (something I’m still learning to use). The bases are made with 2 part epoxy resin using wooden base blanks and Overhead Projector paper to make a mould.
