And the final two Hell Dorado warbands.


I realized that I hadn't posted the final two Hell Dorado warbands that I painted last year for the hobby articles for Cipher Studios. Well, here they are. First (above) are the Immortals. This Chinese-inspired faction has been in Hell for quite some time, and the foot soldiers sport a few tainted/mutated body parts. Very fine and delicate miniatures, these ones.


The final war band I worked on was a little larger, primarily because it doesn't have a starter box, so I had to pick out the models based on what I liked - I liked a lot of them. These are the Mercenaries. I have enough of them to play a decent sized game of Hell Dorado, and I can also ally them with my Westerners (or any other faction, really).


The Officers here are Andre de Montbard and Marcus Leblanc. Both have a fantastic Templar look.


These are the Troops for the force: two Deserters on the left and two Templar Squires on the right.

And finally the Independents: Thirty Coins (the blind sniper), the Russian Trapper, and one of my favorite models in the range - Angelo Casaviecchi (a lemure trapper/trader).

Such wonderful character in all of these models, and a joy to paint.

  5. Great work on these. I've always loved Hell Dorado (I actually got to write some fiction for the expansion rulebook), and I wish the game had gotten a proper reboot under Cipher's control - too bad they just weren't in a good position to really push the game to where it should have been taken here in the the States.

    1. Thanks Odie. I think there's still room and opportunity for them to grow it a bit more.
