The Berserkers are here, the field of battle will never be the same for the other Saga factions! - If I get to play anymore games that is!
In the meantime I content myself with painting the army up. So the first step was to clean the models as best I could. Thankfully Foundry miniatures are quite well cast, and in my humble opinion, don't suffer from as many casting defects as other companies - like Warlord for example.
Before I start let me just say again that I am not a speed painter, and I do not enjoy painting armies. I am definitely a showcase painter and I like to play with painted armies but not go through the hassle of painting them up.
I say this because, although the techniques I use here are relatively fast for someone with my gaming preferences, they would not be suitable for true speed painting. I choose this approach deliberately. This system allows me to be a bit more creative and build up my armies to a certain standard without spending hours upon hours on them.
With that out of the way, the painting begins. I started off by blocking out the colours. This lets me gauge the palette I want to use, and check whether the unit looks like a unit. That is, whether or not they have a common theme. This is probably the most time consuming part of the process.
