We continue to have a blast with our Antares Initiative in the club. I've been working on the painting for my Isorians and wanted to share.

The biggest and most fun decision was the blue glow I applied with the airbrush. All the Isorians have a multitude of vent or pod type items on their suit. My intrepretation was that these are the life energy and pheromone-type stuff going in and out. A great visual in my head was the Isorians of the frozen wastes adapting their biochemistry to use this as an energy source. The cold moves through them, like water through gills. Their weapons and suits siphon this off to power such items.

The effect is noticeable, but with more practice Ii think it could look more refined. It made quick work of organic suits like this, with all the raised areas popping here and there.

I picked out a sickly looking green bone color for the armored plates, I like the effect. I wanted to give these parts a little call out but nothing too crazy.
Check back soon as I'll be jumping into some Isorian tactics with a few more options on the table! Until then, may you lucky shot that medi-drone.
