Hi! This is Ozzy. I wanted to tell you how I made my Boromite Lavamite squad.

The models were easy to build because most of them were only one to three parts. First, I base coated them with a layer of “Rust-Oleum” satin nutmeg paint. I painted them like that to look like Gorons from the “The Legend of Zelda” series.

Next, I painted the scales on their backs with the Mechanicus Standard Grey paint. After that I painted the lava in their mouths Troll Slayer Orange to look like lava. Then I painted the teeth and claws with Flayed One Flesh.

Next, I painted the Handlers’ guns Abaddon Black. After that I painted the sensors on the Mites and the pants, kneepads, elbow pads, and gun highlights on the Handlers with Iyanden Darksun.

Then I painted the Electro-Whips and the plasma on their Plasma guns with Sotek Green to get a cool “electrical” effect.

Next, I added some brown and green on the grenades and pouches. Finally, I washed the models with Agrax Earthshade.

I like how they came out, but my dad and I still need to find a way to do cool looking cracked ice bases. Jeremy has a good idea we will try. I am going to paint the rest of my army this month. Thanks for reading!

Note from editor of Fresh Coast Gaming: Other than the last picture, this entire blog post was written and all photos were taken by Oscar.

I think we’d all agree that Oscar has done a superb job on those Lavamites & we wish him great success in munching through his opponents!
