Fair greetings to the kin of many makes and models.
Last years pride month I looked at allot of projects and items that celerbrated pride month and I found that, well they slapped a rainbow texture over it and called it a day.
I felt we could be more creative with the process so I set a personal challenge of painting models in the colours of their respective flags in lore freindly manners.
for the rules of the challenge I avoided space marines as while they’re perfect for freedom of design I wanted to challenge myself and use races with typically more constrained colour palletes.
So on the side I began work on the models, mostly just base coated in their current states. I got lost in Votann projects as of late.
The rainbow I thought might be the most challenging but thinking about it there are a few flashy races that can use it well.
but what I settled on was a Skink preist.
my first foray in drybrush fading and was really happy with the result.
Non-binary was an easy choice put forth by one such non-binary freind.
the other one will end up an insecticon I know it.
The last one I managed to do in my mad pile of weird projects was the intersex flag. only 2 colours… but felt leaving out the iconic circle would have lost something from the final peice.
I found that tasteful solution in the end.
hopefully one day fatshark adds skeleton themed cosmetics to their games, I love skeletons. I wish to have a servoskull for a head in darktide.
So yeah, I encourage folk to try it, pick a flag, limit your colours and paint something fun.
