15mm Fortnight: Painting For Hippos Ishoo Too: Space Pirates.


Welcome to another thrilling instalment of 15mm Fortnight! In this ishoo, we're looking at how to paint non-human 15mm figures; specifically Ground Zero Games' Alien Mercs, which form the basis for my Space Pirate army. One of the main challenges with a non-human paint job is finding the right skin tone; you don't want them too look too human, but you don't want anything too outlandish either. After a bit of experimentation, I've found a system which looks just right, and which is so easy a hippo could do it!






And there you have it! A unit of obviously non-human origin, quickly and simply painted. Like the militia from our previous instalment, these guys were painted inside an hour.
