"The Enforcers Are The Paladins’ Standard Infantry Branch."
These three 35mm scale metal Paladin Enforcers are produced by “Privateer Press” and can be found inside the Iron Star Alliance Command Group Starter Set for Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika. The multi-part figures carry "an assault rifle with a bayonet" and are able to "attack with both weapons simultaneously in a blur of violence and firepower."
Having either pinned or super-glued the trio's weapon arms (and one leg) in place, each miniature was primed in "Citadel" Abaddon Black before being treated to a double-helping of "Vallejo" Gunmetal. They were then shaded using "Citadel" Nuln Oil and dry-brushed with (more) "Vallejo" Gunmetal using a large make-up blusher brush,
Sticking with the somewhat 'clean' metallic look of their leader's previously painted mechanically enhanced compound armour, I patiently 'picked out' a number of details on each sculpt with a little "Citadel" Abaddon Black. This included the Enforcers' knee-pads, central chest plate, elbow-pads, and the majority of their assault rifles.
In addition, I applied a layer of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna over each soldier's spats, shoulder-pads, face-plate, and thigh-joints. These areas were later given a coat of "Vallejo" Brass, a dash of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade, and some delicate dry-brushing with a smidge more "Vallejo" Brass so as to bring back some of their shine after being shaded.
Lastly, I painted part of each Paladin's Arc receiver with "Vallejo" Brass and washed them with "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade. I was planning on also applying a combination of "Vallejo" Turquoise and "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade to my Iron Star Alliance warriors, as I had done on their Paladin Commander. However, much to my disappointment I found that none of the three figures were wearing any cloth garments whatsoever.
With over half of my Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika miniatures now finished, I have also completed another of my old 28mm FedSec Troopers made by “Crooked Dice Game Design Studio”. This gas-mask wearing figure comes from their now out-of-production Federated Security Starter Set and was painted up to be one of Supreme Commander Servalan's goons from the BBC science fiction television series “Blake’s Seven”.
