Alrighty, so my last productivity update was actually around a month ago. A lot’s happened since then! So I will summarize with photos and captions. Seems to go over pretty well. 🙂
So… where to… where to even start here…?
I guess I set down the Spawn of Cryptus for a while and got to work on the Warriors.
I guess once the warriors got their love I moved into the Genestealers… Which are now pretty much finished. I have some final line-highlighting on their armour plates to do, but that’s about it (and basing, obviously).
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
They’re absolutely nothing fancy. I snapped one day, staring longingly at my black primed bases, thinking how much of a pain in the ass it would be to start gluing sand down at this stage of the game, painting on primer, inking, painting, etc.
So I went out to the shop, vented for about 20 minutes, and came up with this stop-gap solution. Easy, 2 step bases to success.
- Agrellan Earth – GW Technical Paint that induces dry-earth-like cracking. SUPER cool.
- Army Builder grass flock.
Again, not going to win any friggin’ Golden Demons but it’s a far cry better than simply black bases.
But then there’s more still…
I started mucking about with the colours for the Blood Angels components of the Deathstorm boxed set, which will likely be getting some attention in the near future. I’ve never painted beakies with this kind of detail before (my Dark Angels from 3rd edition were simply base-coated, and looked pretty terrible…) so this is an interesting and unique challenge for me, particularly with all the ‘Nids that have been getting love lately.
So this is a test model of sorts. It includes the black armour that I’ll be giving the Death Company (and other miscellaneous black bits as req’d), and a panel of almost completed red armour (for the sake of argument).
I’m pretty pleased with the result, just need to apply the concepts across the entire model now.
…And then there’s this guy. Who I’m going to leave as the subject of another post entirely. He deserves it.
…and then there’s THIS guy… who will also be another post. Someone gifted him to me as part of a Secret Santa. Note his swords of conquest — the demonblade and Wraith-sword…
Anyways, been a busy month. It’ll be a busier weekend as I try to finish the Trygon and Swarmlord for a game on Sunday 😀
Cheers, and happy modelling guys!
