Just a quick one to show off the first finished NOVA Corps mini. I decided that if I was going to get anything done worth posting this week I’d need to just work on a single NOVA Corps mini so I decided to use this one as a prototype. There’s not much too him, but I’m happy enough that I will use the same colours on the other troops too. He’s just got some edge highlighting as well as an orangey visor and green pipes which were both only about 3 colours in the end.

Between these guys and the IMEF Marines from my Reaper Bones pledge I figured I would be able to provide enough unique minis that I could get some games going with my friends.

When I finished Kyra last week I decided I would pick these guys up again and continue where I had left off, which was primed and then airbrushed blue all over. Two of the minis had had some grey painted on the cloth under the armour plates, but otherwise they were all basically blank blue slates.
