Thinking I’d make use of the some of the figures seen in my last post I’ve embarked on a long intended project within the Deathzap universe, that being the Camerian Civil War. I’ve started by painting two simple skirmish forces of North and South Camerians using the old Airfix Afrika Korps and 8th Army.
First up are my Northerners:
All the paint jobs below are mostly Citadel Contrast paints over a simple white prime. Only the skin and weapons were picked out with regular acrylics and given a wash. I go back and forth as to whether it is worth putting a wash over the contrast paints to give them a little depth. The pro of washing them is that you get that depth, and the figure looks more cohesive, but the the con is that the colours appear more washed out and don’t look as good from a distance.
There’s something a little ‘communist’ looking about my Northerners, which is not entirely intentional. The Northerners are funded and equipped by the Jendari Collective.
The South Camerians are funded and equipped by House Baronor. They fight for the Camerian Royal Family.
There’s a vested interest in both the Jendari Collective and House Baronor keeping the Civil War going, should Cameria be won by either side the balance of power on Jendar would crumble, and a planetary Civil war would almost inevitably result.
The Northern Camerians assault a Southern position, in a rather haphazard and unrealistic fashion (but it looks cool none the less). Army Red and Army Blue perhaps?
Rules wise I think it is only right to use Featherstone’s Close Wars, but as always there will be tweaks. Vintage Airfix figures deserve Vintage rules!
