Showcase: Jez Allum’s (Glowing!) Isorian force

Notorious paint-wizard, Jez Allum of Jez’s Painting Blog is becoming something of a regular feature on the Warlord site… his paint work can be seen across all kinds of Warlord-related Facebook groups, and his brush never seems to slow… though his most recent project features a particularly interesting feature…

Beneath the glow of a blacklight, his Isorian force GLOWS! 

Jez – I liked the Isorians from the first time I saw them, but it was only once I had a chance to actually sit down and paint the miniatures up that I truly fell in love with these models – the Geigeresque armour has a really gribbly feel to it – giving them a really distinct feel…

I painted the force in a chitinous purple scheme – and added an eerie alien green glow effect on the minis to give contrast. This was achieved by using Vallejo Fluorescent Green paint… and I also added some clump foliage which I made by myself as well, and coloured it with some children’s neon paint, to add even more glow!

Below we’ve added pictures of each unit, with a blacklit photo beneath each to show the effect up-close!

An impressive and (in typical Jez fashion) slightly off-the-wall approach – but one which we love, and which has caused quite a stir amongst the offices at Warlord HQ!
