Welcome back, Loosh ! Your presence was missed! Also comparing your paint list to mine is like , haha. I've only painted a handful of models this year, but I'm seeking to invest more time into the hobby, now that I will have more time. Working a shift that goes late into the evening left me too tired to paint on the weekdays, and on the weekends I wanted to do some other stuff. Going back to normal hours, should help alleviate that problem!
Haha! Cheers Myen'Tal. Stick with the painting. An hour each night (or heck, even 30 minutes) goes a hell of a long way. You'll be cranking it out in no time!
Update time. I managed to finish everything I was working on, which is great. I also have a new needle for my airbrush turning up any day, so shouldn't see a drop off anytime soon.
First up, Garrek's Reavers.
I wanted these guys to have a warm tone overall, despite their light skin tones. Warm brass aplenty, ginger hair, the Toffee Apple Red armour plates, all hopefully offset against the light, cold skin and the steel colours. Oh...and then there's the blood!
Mr Garrek? We're ready for your close up.
GW did a great job with Blood for the Blood God. Love the wet look:
So that I wasn't going crazy painting flesh and blood and all that, I also painted some Crimson Fists, which are far darker in person, but what are you going to do?
I clearly still have transfers and battle damage to the torsos to complete, however, with no transfers, they'll do for now.
I was pretty pleased with the face on this guy. Especially as it was just Kislev Flesh with a Reikland Fleshshade wash. Pick out the eyes and teeth and then I was done. I do need to drill out the boaters though. Although I have no idea where my small drill bits have got to...
I wanted the helmet on his waist to have obvious damage, because why the hell would you take it off?
Finally, I've had an annoying Goblin Blood Bowl team that I just couldn't face painting. I was seriously underwhelmed by the thought of painting these guys...and then it just clicked and they became fairly easy. I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
The Pittsburg Steelers
The Blurg Pit Stealers!
There's loads of character with these guys, and despite there only being about 5 poses, the number of head types meant that no 2 models are the same. Add in different colours on back and front plates, or shoulders, and it means that there is true diversity in the team, whilst retaining a universal feel.
So there you go! 2019 kicking off in fine style. Not even halfway through January and I'm cranking it. I think I just need to keep a varied painting diet and not churn out 33 dry brushed Nighthaunt and everything should be ok ;P
Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to your feedback.
