I'm happy to hear that your recovery is progressing well, even if it is going more slowly than you would like.

It looks as though you played on a very detailed and dynamic gaming table.  There are certainly a number of evocative colours and high quality terrain pieces on show in those photographs.

That starweaver looks amazing! Probably one of the best I've seen.

Looks great Cav and it will all blend seemlessly into your existing army or look fantastic on their own.

Cav... My dear Cav... You did it again... You went beslubbering ham and got such a tricky paint style so beslubbering right... Do I swear a lot? Yes, I swear a lot but god damn it's just such a great work except cursing and giving you compliment I don't know what to do!

Beautiful goes without saying and with a bum hand. Using a transfer just pure genius, looks awesome. I hope to have an update soon.

Get well soon Cav!  And thanks for sharing your basing technique!   :)

Is that sand or gravel from GW?  Iím hoping to get mine by the weekend so I can finally finish my minis. 

I think youíd do an awesome job on an Incubi army too.  8)

Hey Cav! That starweaver is 100% top-notch, a smooth transition from red in the back to back&white diamond pattern on the front makes the whole scheme look even more striking. Excellent overall design from the practical standpoint too, I love how the red+gold combination ties Harlies smoothly into the rest of your force, while diamonds still keep them distinguishable. Thumbs up :)

As for stencils, what I saw people do on Starweavers (and Skyweavers for that matter) is masking off individual diamonds rather than applying a one-piece stencil. You can easily make multiple diamonds out of masking tape by cutting a long strip of desired width first and then cutting it into small pieces diagonally to get diamonds. The main advantage of this technique is that an individual dianomd-shaped piece of masking tape is far easier to apply so that it adheres to the surface firmly along all edges, thus keeping those edges crisp. Just an idea anyway :) that's what I'd do if I were to paint Starweavers, as this would still be quicker to do than hand-painting all diamonds (perticularly if they are white!).

Really hope your wrists heal soon! Physical exercise is awesome, but you really shouldn't take it so far that it causes lasting damage to your body. Then again, as they say it - you never know what is enough unless you know what is too much, right? ;)

Beautiful work on that Starweaver Cav. I see what you mean about the 'fuzziness' of the stencil diamonds, but I wouldn't be too worried about it. From the looks of it, you can only tell that they are a badge more fuzzy from the close up photos...they look great from all but the most detailed inspections. You've definitely nailed the diamonds that you did by hand though. Super sharp and they look great.

Question time; did you fully paint the driver (it appears as though you did) and then tint the canopy? If so, how did you apply the tint and what did you use? It looks fantastic!

Cheers for sharing Cav...I guess that the silver lining in the cloud that is your injury is this; you no longer work and post at such a furious rate that everyone else on the board just feels plain bad about their hobby devotion! Keep healing and keep knocking it out of the park bud!

@Auricís Pride- Thanks man! It did require a fair bit of clean up but in the end it looks decent. Also yes! I took your advice on the Skyweavers and it was a life saver. Thanks man!

@Irisado- Thanks so much Irisado. Still recuperating but feeling better. Yeah that table was amazing! It not only looked great but functionally it was really good as it had a lot of LOS blocking terrain too. Anyway thanks Irisado glad you liked the photos

@Blazinghand- Damn, thanks man! Really high compliment as there are some amazing Harlie paint jobs out there. Thanks!

@Magenb- Thanks bud. Glad you think itíll fit in well with the rest of the force. Mission accomplished!

@Grizzlykin- lol thanks so much my man! Always appreciate your comments my friend. Keep rocking you are doing great yourself!

@Dread- Thanks a million my friend. If anyone knows my pain (literally!) its you. So thanks man I really appreciate it.

@Calamity- No problem bud. Yeah my basing is just sand with little cork rocks (5 dollar tub Iíve been using for years). Also yes! The Incubi army needs to happen!

@Seekingone- Oh man thank you so much SeekingOne. As you know Iíve the highest admiration for your skills, so the kind words mean so much to me. Yeah Iím healing up slowly but surely. The main culprit was too much computer use more than the excersize but regardless all things in moderation. Gotta protect my hands, they are my money makers! lol :D

@Looshkin- Thanks so much brother. Yeah the fuziness is a real pain but now I know. Hopefully youíll see the difference in my bikes. Also yes I fully painted the driver. Thats something I always do. As for how I painted the canopy, its super easy. I blast it with some ďwet-lookĒ varnish. Do a mix of green INK (Not wash) and GW ĎArd Coat and just paint it on there. It goes on super easy. Just do little touch with a wet brush to adjust it. After it dries I paint the framing. It really couldnít be easier. Iím actually thinking of repainting all my canopies with a teal ink sometime but havenít decided. Also yes! As soon as I stepped back everyone stepped forward and thats great to see. Its been hugely inspirational. Anyway thanks man hope you are healing up yourself.

@Everyone- So guys here is my first finished jebtike. Man it was super intensive paint work but in the end it was worth it. I couldnít be happier. Doing the diamonds by hand was def. the way to go. Iím so excited at this point to be painting this stuff. That sort of ďI cant believe Iím gonna have a legit Harlequin forceĒ feeling is truly upon me (and yes that is a certified emotional phenomenon lol). Despite how touch these models are to paint they really are a joy. Each one is sort of a puzzle which really suits the army. Also these models were my first where I did an airbrush fade! Anyway hope you guys like it!









Iíll be back soon to comment on what everyone has been up to. You guys are crushing it! Anyway thanks guys and talk soon!

Glorious as always, Cav, cannot believe that you painted that diamond pattern by hand! The Jetbikes and the transport look sleek, still don't understand how you're painting all of that fully assembled lol. I guess a career of practice makes perfect ;D.

And there I was, thinking "Interesting, how Cav's going to handle those bikes...?" And you did them just right. Even the size of the checkered pattern on the prow is so spot on. Awesome! Naturally, never expected any less of you ;)
Great stuff, keep it coming!

Late to the party, but glad to see you're on the mend :) injuries that affect motor skills scare the bejeezus out of me. Manage to hurt the tendons in my wrist a while back and had to spend 3 weeks sitting around not making or painting anything and it drove me nuts!

Doesn't seem to have slowed you down all that much from where I'm standing though ;) still painted more than I have ;)
