@Ynnead- You definitely need an airbrush, mine massively improved my painting.
@Loosh- Thanks man! I'm really glad that you like them! They've been super fun to paint! My June pledge is partially complete. It's gonna be a Heroes path formation (Solitaire, Death Jester, Shadowseer) and then 4x Skyweavers. Got everything at least partially done but may be struggling to get the details done by the end of the month.
@Grizzlykin- Thanks bud! Honestly, I wholeheartedly recommend getting an airbrush. They are an absolute game changer!
As Loosh and Cav have mentioned I started a "Tale of Gamers" thing with some friends in May where I pledge to build and paint at least 1 unit per month. It also really conveniently fell in line with the Splintermind competition to paint up 1,000pts of Harlequins by September in similar fashion. These have really pushed me to spend more time in the painting and really motivate me to get stuff done.
@Cav- Cheers Cav! To be honest the Harlequins are probably my favourite thing in the 40k universe so it's really been a labour of love. Oh and I want that prize!
@Dog_of_war- Cheers bud! There is no real secret to the golds to be honest! Retributor armour with a Reikland flesh wash over the top. Simple but so effective!
@Dread- Thanks Dread, Honestly I always used to feel the same when looking at some of the stuff posted on here but now I just use it to motivate myself to get better!
A little update to the Harlequins, part of my June Pledge has been completed in the Solitaire and Death Jester. I've kept to the same colour scheme for these models so that I can build up a nice cohesive look across the army. Really enjoying how these are coming out now!DSC_4619DSC_4621
I also shot a real quick video of my Harlequins so far, Unfortunately the quality isn't nearly as good as I had hoped for. I struggled somewhat with focus (due to light) and the stabiliser was misbehaving but hopefully it'll still look cool.Harlequins - YouTube
I shall try and do a better quality one in the future!
